At this year's Musikmesse show, Behringer announced its first modeling guitar amplifier head--the all-new V-Ampire LX1200H (price tba). The 2 x 60-Watt stereo or 120-Watt mono operation amplifier features 32 amp models, 15 speaker cabinet simulations and a 24-bit multi-effects processor. It will be shipped in the third quarter 2004.
At the LX1200H's heart is a vast collection of amp and cabinet models--ranging from modern to vintage amplifiers. The LX1200H features 32 amp models based on further improvements and refinement of the V-AMP 2 modeling technology. Behringer's switchable ULTRA-G speaker simulation facilitates direct recording or feeding live sound to a P.A., while an adjustable stereo aux input for line-level signals such as CD or sound cards perfectly fits for monitoring applications.
Additionally, the V-Ampire LX1200H features 16 effect models, including analog delays, compressor, wah-wah, reverb, flanger and rotary speakers, among others. The 15 speaker cabinet models can be mixed and matched with any of the amp models and effects. Furthermore, the amplifier package includes a pre DSP send/return for dry recording and wet monitoring, while an extremely low-noise instrument input ensures maximum guitar signal integrity. Intuitive rotary controls with dedicated LED indicators make operation easy and simple.
The balanced stereo XLR DI OUT with ground lift is also provided, and 15 rear panel connectors allow comprehensive routing for any application plus full MIDI compatibility. A Windows editor is downloadable from the Behringer website free-of-charge.
