This is a digital stereo amp simulator coupled to a power transistor amp 500W. It has 4 different outputs: headphones (mini-jack), studio (2XLR), baffle (2jack stereo or bridged mono speakon 1) and a final output jack that allows you to bypass the poweramp (if you want to use another amp power). For Input 1 instrument and an input / output for external effects loop + connection for a midi foot
Level Adjustment facade there are the classic amp settings (bass, mid, treble, presence, gain, level + the master controlling the poweramp) which is VERY valuable to his sound RPET (no need to go through menus).
There is also a USB socket on the back to use the remote control and a slot for an SD card that can load / retrieve patches and perform firmware updates.
To create its patches were roughly the same controls as other products of the same type (pin-fractal fx) but it is much easier to use the remote control software to control the multiamp from his computer.
Level effects can be almost anything: overdrive, chorus, flanger, fuzz, reverb delay, compression, phaser, EQ, wah ... and a very significant noise gate.
Modeling level simuls are spread over 3 channels (clean, crunch and hi-gain) with 6 for each simulation.
To play studio output is also found several simulations of speakers and microphones with several options.
Note that there are three versions of multiamp 1 stereo (the one I have), 1 mono (cheaper) and a "tube" with a poweramp lamps 120W.
The setup is pretty simple once you understand the principle: the sound of the chain is represented by 8 slot with still 1 slot for the amp and one for the speaker simulation. The remainder can be filled by the effects which can then activate or deactivate the touch of a button.
Fortunately, the config is simple because the manual is anorexic ... really found it basic information to get started, but it's clear there's not much more. For more detailed information must be contact by email http://www.dvmark.it/ DV mark or so have a look at this forum dedicated to users of multiamp (in English) that comes to the day: http: //multiampusersforum.proboards.com/
However not need too much hassle 40 years to make a sound (especially if you play on a speaker) because the amp simulations are really of high quality.
I sincerely believe that the multiamp suitable for all styles of music (he just has to see the variety of musicians who adopted) given the diversity of simulated amplifiers.
I play for my part in a death metal band and I could find a sound that suits me very well with only a simulation (5150) and a noise gate. There really was in this machine a grain and a presence that holds a candle to the all-tube amps. I played before on a ENGL fireball which I was generally satisfied and I adopted the multiamp RPET after 10 minutes (not counting all the possibilities in terms of different sounds and effects)
Question power no problem (except if you play not transplanted in an airport hangar with a guy who has a tube amp 120w to the cleat). A big advantage of the power section is that it is non-linear. You can have the nuance low volume and if one is in rehearsal with wild one realizes that the last notches master really used to send timber if necessary.
After I think the multiamp really expresses a good speaker. The output studio headphones are very good but I think it's a little more turned to the live tool to the studio (in contrast to the reference in the field: the fractal axis-fx is more comfortable in the studio and speaker output but also costs almost double in Europe ...). The brand remains a very high level both in clean, crunch or big saturation.
I use it for 3 weeks. Before I had my house for a small pod with line6 (nice when you start but was quickly reached its limits) and an ENGL Fireball RPET. I put a lot of time choosing and listened to a lot of demos but I do not regret my choice.
The few negatives would be: the mini-jack headphone output (wtf ??) and a USB port yet untapped in my opinion (to do with the next firmware updates). The documentation available is frankly light for my taste.
I especially like the warmth of the sound and its dynamics (it is clearly on the high end) and the potential of different effects and future updates of the firmware. The response to the game really gives the impression that there is nothing digital back there. Its ease of handling and its very reasonable price compared to competition (especially kemper-axis fx) is also a determining factor for me.
Doc and information on the DV Mark site.
This is a transistor amp head, with conventional guitar amp settings.
There are three channels, integrated effects, effects loop mono output, modeling loudspeakers for use in the studio or on stage (plugged directly into a PA).
The connection is complete, one can only regret the absence of a stereo effects loop.
It can connect to any type of speaker (several impedances) and audio installation, this is the big advantage.
The amp is very easy to use, the documentation is almost non-existent, but it's OK.
There are amp modeling for each channel. We can start by playing with the presets installed, download those artists on the site of DV Mark and modify them or create your own sounds.
I started using it myself plugging directly into a sound card, stereo. The sound is very nice and sounds right away.
I then bought the cabinet DV DV Mark neoclassic 212, and it became much more interesting. We find the power and volume of an amp. It does not compare with the sounds of the lamps (there is excellent amp transistor and metal bands use only modeling), I found a real pleasure to play. The dynamic is good, cleans perfect crunch very convincing and brilliant as high gain.
There are two facets to this amp. The sounds with modeling speaker, microphones, mic position ... and the conventional use with a guitar cabinet.
I play with a Schecter (2 humbuckers) and a US strat (3 single pickups). I can easily get metal sounds, hardcore, prog, jazz, in short almost everything. The pad is useful in my case as the Schecter has a higher level of output than the strat.
I must say I was very impressed with the modeling of Soldano and Bogner Ecstasy.
I like all the sounds you can do cleans cruncher in guitar volume. The multiamp permits, the dynamics are respected. The sounds are all of good quality, never showy, and positive, there is very little breath on the big distortion, noise gate effect is present, which is also an advantage for metal riffs.
Editing sounds is used to select an amp, and effects that can be put before or after the amp and we earn little. (You can choose a delay, reverb, and chorus for example, but not two simultaneous reverbs).
The effects are honest. Simulations tube screamer, blues driver and compressors are very successful. The chorus, flange, phaser and tremolo (which I never use in general) are nice, it's clean. The delays are the more elaborate effects, there are stereo effects, with many opportunities for rhythmic divisions. U2 fans will find them.
DV Mark updates and adds effects and amps from time to time with the update to install via an SD card. That's a good point.
Youtube videos are starting to multiply, they give a good overview of the capabilities of the machine.
I found this very successful with use with speaker amp.
I think it is a serious ran to fractal because it is cheaper for a more honest result. It is also in my opinion, much more realistic and that professional modeling Line ***, there are no superfluous or useless effects sounds. It goes straight to the point, all sounds are usable.
I think the value for money is excellent, then he must expect the product to the guitarist. Guitarist prom, pop or metal can find his account.
I bought this amp on a whim.
Personally, I think back to a small amp lamp a little cheaper, some good pedals and a unique sound. It's always in my opinion, the disadvantage of this kind of material was spoiled for choice in settings and sounds can be at the expense of creativity.
