SM Pro Audio is showing three new products at the show – the V-Box, V-Rack, and V-Pedal are stand-alone VST plug-in compatible hardware units.


SM Pro Audio describes them as three of the funkiest standalone VST compatible products ever seen and designed to provide musicians, engineers, producers, and guitarists performance products they can rely on.

Based around the recently developed 'Powered by VFX’™ hardware platform, VST and VSTi plug-ins can be loaded directly into the V-Box, V-Pedal, or V-Rack which all offer VST/VSTi plug-in compatibility in stand-alone hardware units without the need for a standard PC/Mac computer.

SM Pro Audio describes their three new V-products:

V-Box
The V-Box is a compact VST/VSTi hardware playback module built for performance keyboard players and DJ’s. It is one little beast that can’t be underestimated once loaded up with your favorite VST instrument and effect plugins. Take your plug-ins on the road or into the studio and access them live without a computer. Multiple plug-ins can be pre-loaded into bank/preset memories for immediate access. Combine VST and VSTi plug-ins into chains, splits, and layers to create extremely rich and unique sounds. Full external MIDI controller support allows users access to available loaded plug-in parameter controls such as virtual dials, switches, and faders. Infinitely adaptable and powerful, the V-Box is set to become a truly indispensable tool.



V-Pedal
The V-Pedal has been specifically designed for guitarists wanting to take the best guitar plug-ins (and more) out on the road in a rock-solid 'all in one’ hardware unit. With mic/line inputs, programmable stomp switches and rotary encoders, TFT display, expression pedal, and a host of other features, the V-Pedal gives guitarists something they have never had before. The freedom to develop unique sounds from the thousands of available VST plug-ins. It’s no secret that some of the very best guitar tones and effects are now being created from within computer software plug-ins. The V-Pedal gives guitarists access to these and many more sound options in a dedicated floor stomp box. Built like a tank, simple to use, and with unheard of sonic flexibility, the V-Pedal rocks like no other.


V-Rack
The V-Rack features the same functionality as the V-Box, with the addition to a pair of balanced stereo audio inputs and multiple balanced output pairs. Perfect for studio or live use, the V-Rack is well suited for use as an outboard effects unit, multiple output synthesizer module, or even a mastering unit. The V-Rack features high-end AD/DA converters and offers a level of performance suitable for all professional environments. A true chameleon, the V-Rack can be configured to operate as just about any outboard audio device on demand.

All SM Pro Audio V-products ship with control configuration software compatible with Windows and Mac OS X.
Users can load up their favorite VST/VSTi plug-ins on their computer for auditioning, sound-set creation, and bank/preset memory assignment prior to transferring to one of the V-products for stand-alone use.
Simple intuitive software makes sound and effect creation a breeze. Transferring your plug-ins to the V-Box, V-Pedal, or V-Rack couldn’t be easier. A speedy USB transfer to the hardware units takes care of all required user data, memories, and of course plug-in transfer. Once in the main unit… you have freed your plug-ins from the computer and have instant immediate access to your instrument and effect sound creations on a dedicated hardware unit.

An SM Pro Audio spokesperson had this to say, “Our new V-products offer a unique solution suitable for performance, recording, and live sound applications. With great audio performance, hardware stability, ease of operation, portability, and VST/VSTi compatibility, V-products set a new benchmark for hardware design. VST technology has already changed music production as we know it and is now set to enter the world of live performance and studio use via V-Products.”

John Fuller, SM Pro Audio product manager, told us, "Our new V-Products 'Powered by VFX’ offer extremely powerful solutions to customers wanting to access the huge selection of available VST and VSTi plug-in in stand-alone hardware. Having three distinctive and uniquely featured products has allowed us to offer customers the features they need in compact, reliable and affordable units.”
