Tube-driven Valve Reactor circuitry
The ToneLab EX carries on the most important benefit of the Valvetronix line: true-tube sound produced by a real 12AX7 triode vacuum tube. VOX created the Valve Reactor to satisfy our belief that the sonic tonal character of tubes can be obtained only by using real vacuum tubes. This unique VOX addition draws a clear distinction between the ToneLab EX and the modeling products from other manufacturers, and generates an overwhelmingly powerful sound unobtainable from other multi-effect units.
Sophisticated amp & cabinet modeling technology
Throughout history, there have been numerous amps that have inspired guitarists in every era and have been the motivating power behind countless classic performances. The ToneLab EX provides 33 distinct amp models that include such vintage amps, sought-after boutique amps, today's high-gain amps, as well as new amp models developed by VOX. The 11 cabinet models perfectly reproduce the depth, response, and resonances of various combo amps and extension cabinets. By mixing and matching amps and cabinets, the ToneLab EX provides some 363 exciting combinations!
200 ready-to-play programs, including 50 Song Presets
100 Preset Programs are provided for immediate use. Each one skillfully combines the right amp/pedal model, cabinet model, and multiple effects to accurately portray a particular musical style and performance technique. The professional sound team at VOX has created 100 of these Preset Programs. Included in this group are the 50 Song Preset programs. These Song Presets provide spot-on recreations of the guitar sound used to define a classic guitar track - familiar songs that everyone knows. By using the Song Presets, even guitarists who are unfamiliar with multi-effect units will be able to enjoy the ToneLab EX's versatile sound right away. In addition, you can store 100 User Programs containing the customized settings you've edited and saved yourself. Together with the preset programs, the ToneLab EX delivers a total of 200 instantly accessible programs.
Rugged and road-ready, with a full-size VOX expression pedal
Featuring a durable metal chassis, the ToneLab EX also offers a full-size expression pedal. Providing realtime control of the wah and volume effects that are such vital elements of a live performance, this pedal can also be used to control the parameters of a variety of effects. The popular Quick Assign function borrowed from earlier ToneLab pedals is also provided. The parameter you're currently editing can be instantly assigned to the pedal, so it's easy to change the function of the expression pedal whenever you want.
Intuitive, dual-mode panel places great tone at your feet
In the Program Select mode, the pedal switches are used to call up the correct bank and select a program. The ToneLab EX also provides a "Stomp-Box mode," in which the effects assigned to the current program are individually assigned to the foot switches, so that each effect can be turned on and off individually as you play. This mode is perfect for when you are using the same effects throughout a song, but might only need the delay on during the solo. Simply stomp the delay on, without the need to create two separate programs. This second mode conveniently transforms the ToneLab EX into a virtual pedal-board. The high-quality sound of each individual effect rivals that of stand-alone processors, while still providing the enormous convenience of carrying all of these comprehensive amp models and premium effects as a single unit.
Self-contained, with built-in stereo monitor speakers
In a first for a ToneLab effects unit, VOX has included miniature stereo speakers allowing you to conveniently listen to your sound without having to connect a guitar amp or headphones. This is extremely convenient for last minute backstage editing, programming in private, or just being able to audition your sounds. Each speaker has its own 0.3 Watt amplifier.
The ToneLab EX features a Normal/Strobe chromatic tuner using a newly designed and easy-to-read LED display that's highly visible - even on a dark stage! Compared to previous ToneLab models, the ToneLab EX offers more LEDs, allowing more precise tuning. In addition to the Normal tuning mode, there's also a Strobe mode that makes it fun to tune while watching the flowing LED illumination. Mute and bypass features are also provided, ensuring smooth tuning when you're on stage.
Versatile Ins and Outs
The output jacks provide an Amp/Line output switch to provide optimal sound through any amp or system. For recording, connection to a power amp, or when connecting directly to a mixing console, set the switch to the Line position and enjoy using the Total Equalizer feature to shape the final tone of your sound through the connected system. When connecting the ToneLab EX directly to a guitar amplifier, set this switch to Amp, and select either VOX (For VOX amps), F (for a mostly clean, open back American combo amp), or M (when using a typical British amp with a separate head and a sealed cabinet). This ensures that you'll be able to maximize the ToneLab EX's sonic potential in any situation. An AUX IN jack allows you to connect an external audio source such as your CD/MP3 player so that you can jam along with the sound of your favorite bands. As you can see, the ToneLab EX is designed to support the guitarist in many ways!
