Rocktron Prophesy II
This pre-amp is digital, but has a small lamp that holds your device sound chaud.Cet dechire quite everything in its path acot her (in addition, the noise gate is very effectively when playing at high gain). The interface is rather simple, the settings for cons, you may sweat a good coup.De any event, the presets are so good on this version of the prophesy that was generally a little change for our good effects son.Les are just insane and incredibly adjustable in every detail.En Basically, it's not a machine very very easy to edit, but on the other hand if you like that kid on your gear, it's worth it to try the Rocktron.


Like I said above, the configuration can be lengthy, but presets are already a great base.Le the manual, it is very well expliqumais little fun to read.


The Rocktron be a lot all the styles I play (prog-rock, prog-metal, jazz, jazz fusion, pop, contemporary, blues, rock standard, punk rock, death metal, grindcore etc ...) but for the blues on the other hand, I prefer just my Line 6 DM4 live in my little combo hugues & kettner.Pour the rest, I use a Washburn wg7v in the prophesy, in a combo Laney VC 50 (I bypass the preamp while waiting to buy a power-amp) and my MIDI is a controller Berhinger.Mon rhythm metal is on channel Mega-drive, with eight winning many mids (important if you want to sound good group in my opinion), a little chorus, but really a grain of sel.Pour Lead metal, I add the duck and delay a bit more gain and mids.Le remains are presets for plupars Tbilisi has already arranged that I only frequency and volume general.En passing degeulasse The wah is really a chance that I have not sold my cry-baby! But anyway, I use this rarely


I use the Prophesy a month ago, and leave the wah, I personally have no complaints on this bebelle.j 've tried the GT-8, Pod XT Live, but it does not suit me dutout (they are still nice business, but when I taste the same individuals). The price is a bit expensive, but the cappuccino is coming out imbattable.Peut be that the G-system can compete, but it cost the double ... It is clear that I would never think to change preamp, has less to have money to get by the windows

Rocktron Prophesy II
For features, just look at the site of rocktron or so on the advice of prophesy1 because it is the same ..
There is everything you need for me .. The only downside'll have a USB port could be a good idea to use the editor ..


The configuration is relatively simple just take the time to do it a little .. With a little practice you can really do anything and I am far from trs trs all gone! The origins of presets are widely usable conditions rework a bit with the stuff that surrounds the bte ..
The manual is very well done I think .. Simple but effective! ;-)


I play mostly metal (death, black ..) but as a group home a little bit of everything at the moment .. Ending for a cover band will force me to make me sound in real styles Varis but I trust the Prophesy for a..
I use it with one Engl 840/50 and the sound is excellent .. I also did a concert with a velocity 500 + config prophesy and I have had nothing but positive feedback on the sound I had.
The prophesy works well with Poweramp Poweramp transistor but a good lamp is passed into the category of the above!
I really think we can do anything with this preamp .. You just take the time to fiddle with in-depth .. (I have not had time to do as much as I would like ..)
When I see the mass of people who resell their prophesy, I think it's one of espce phenomne fashion that there was the prophesy .. For a year we talked a lot about, or iimme, suddenly several people have bought into thinking the Grail in hand, its a nickel overnight .. Attention all got are in the nature and prophesy may also not like but I think some people claiming they prophesy will have a little look in, they might be surprised! ;-)


I use a prophesy for about a year .. I went from one to prophesy prophesy 2 just for fun as a good deal that has cost me nothing ;-)
Personally I find this pramp ultimate and the only thing I still want to test will be the Engl 570 because I'm in love with and j'tait Engl powerball almost a husband before going on a rack config .. .. But I do not share a look almost the stuff that runs on the sites is to say! ;-)

EDIT OF THE 13/03/08

I finally pass on an engl 570 .. Engl grain was right to me! But I remain a fervent deffenseur of prophesy which remains a standard pramp ultimate situation. Using only a portion of its imfime prfr I can fall back on a sound with a stronger personality and fit me more.
I rpt again with a guitar that uses the prophesy + engl 840/50 and 2 pramps dchirent .. It's just a matter of taste ;-)

Rocktron Prophesy II
Already listed below or see the manufacturer's website all the features.

Indeed the lack of USB force us to use a cable converter Midi / USB
And so it is a bit annoying on a product known as professional when you want to use the editor to back up or tweaking sounds and your PC.


The use itself is very simple and intuitive. (Rotate buttons ....)
The sound is very clean, no hiss or other! It's sometimes a little too clean ... not too much room for error! But it helps to have a game very precise (ideal Prog Metal)!
To learn to have a clean game the Prophesy is a good instructor!
Readily obtained a good sound!
on the other hand to get "sound" must grind a whole bunch of parameters PRE EQ / Post EQ Global EQ etc. ... and there is not so simple! But on the other side one can build his own sound and have a sound identity!
Therefore, the use of the beast is accessible for everyone on the other hand when it wants to push the machine to its limits, there is time to go! After two years I have not done the trick! Anyway I prefer spending time to polish my game to turn knobs !!!!! Because we Prophesy "shows" soon our own game limit! If we play rough, we are quickly unmasked!


A vast range of sound and covers almost all that can wait for a guitarist!
I am satisfied with the sound (even if his quest is eternal).
As I said above. The sound is very clean and can play very precise and ultra fast for fans of the genre.
Damage, however, that the delay is not a "Dual Delay", I mean-is a true stereo delay with the possibility of putting different values ​​on the channel A and channel B. ..
The Prophesy is quite known in the metal, but it performs in all styles, I think! From clean acoustic type, with its Pink Floyd, through Chuck Berry, to Brutal Death Metal Extreme .... I even think it is a little too Metal cataloged so that we can make the Blues or Jazz, for example too!


About 2 years of use, it has been "coupled" first of all to a Marshall 8100 and a Sovtek Mig100 and now a Mesa 2: fifty to be in stereo (a Velocity 120 amp also comes as relief ).
He really respects the sound of guitars! To have a sound that I take my Blackmore Start, and for my sound LAG Rockline Metal Metal or my Ibanez RG470
And there are still some functions (eg ADSR) that I have not explored yet .... So I'm far from tired of the beast!

The price of new is, admittedly, still high but remember that this machine makes professional use with a professional sound and compared to the competition remains very attractive. However, today on the second hand market there are incredible opportunities to do for those who want the Prophesy. (I sometimes feels to make a second rescue the financial crisis but ....).

The major advantage of the machine is to combine a powerful pre-amp + multi-purpose comprehensive in 2U.
With experience I will ever be the same choice!
