Multi preamp digital effects

Good stuff, at least with a good tube power amp sound is very good, super versatile thanks to different equalizers (can be applied parametric equa (not sure of the term) to the equa Standard amp BASS MED TREB GAIN which allows very precise adjustment of the basic sound, it takes some time to get the ear to initiate a name, but after a year I had a terrible sound, with enough attention to its little sharp and quite low, but I love month his group is not intended to push and force of the blow is too strong etc ...)
Pretty easy and quick to learn, in fact it is complete and in good to see good quality.
Rather metal (monstrous) that jazz, but with proper and adequate equa guitar, really anything is possible. With a good midi controller that's great, we can assign any parameter! (+ Bass; + gain; - delay, activate effect, channel change, etc ...!) To a button on the controller

Basically it can suit preamp absolutely everything lmonde if you learn to use it, except his love of "all tube" except those who do not understand the digital

I used it with a Mesa fifty / fifty (old) and NOS baffle (v30, CL80) and my sound was frankly excellent in clear and drive, distortion (very wide range of "his" thanks to the equa parametric) with a good strat luthier or hamer artist korina hb jackson big sound.
It may be a little less good if you want a very vintage sound with such a slight crunch.

I had to pay 600 euros (the prophesy 1) in 2008 I think it was the secondhand basic prices, and frankly disappointed.

Rocktron Prophesy
It is a complete pramp trs. It combines some pramp and some multi-effects. Part pramp given the choice between 4 types of pramp: Clean, Crunch, and british mega distortion. The Multi-effects is comprehensive and flexible in pre-preamp with a compressor, wah-wah (of good quality and effect of your choice. Then 4 pramp post-effects and reverb and mix. The possibility to assign the ADSR (attack, decay, sustain, release) of any paramettre prophesy offers unlimited possibilities. The ADSR can also get an auto-wah of the most beautiful effect. The the effects of good quality trs trs own dynamic trs.
The transition between effects are clean and no latency. The patch factory is almost all usable as is.


The use can be quite simple because you can use the factory sounds to enter games. However, using thorough and much more complicated. The interface is poorly done, can certainly not ergonomic and simple. The leaflet is provides succinct but clear. We regret the absence of a good soft to PC-based dtition aurra could fill this gap but ...


The sound quality is excellent. The pre-amp allows you to pass sound as clear and Arian in his most wicked metal with all shades in between. The overall sound has a tendency to miss lgre low but allows multiple EQ bearing the problem very easy. There is never a parasite even in the extreme. The integrated effects and mixing part achieves its extremely clean even in cases of high volume and sounds loaded, the system works perfectly HUSH (never larsen involuntary)


This is a great machine, complete, robust and versatile. His only default will its complexity and its price is rather lv. I use it now for 3 years and never made me default.

Nothing's more, what was said Macfizz


Last day of 8 October 04: I just find that on the manufacturer's website, the manual is finally translated in French, using a more ;-)

The configuration is difficult, the small display on the one hand and also the multitude of possibilities for offertent bte.

The choice for rglage effects is impressive. With a MIDI Controller and more prcismment an expression pedals, it is possible to change the rglage a live effect (eg. Acclerer or slow the speed of the tremolo effect).

If you get into a personal configuration of the sound has that complicated. I find it hard to rgler starting his own free patches, especially with the EQ (3 !!!). I am not a specialist in, I prcise.

Finally, I took sounds plant by removing the effects and I changed the rglages to find the desired sound, then I added the effects I wanted.


Excellent! Nothing wrong.
You can spend a nice clean sound like "pop" a distortion of type "mtal", and in between of course.

The effects are also gniaux, excellent bill.


I do not regret my choice.
The particular feature I like most is to change the rglages "live" effect to see the same prampli same (gain, volume, mid, etc.).. And offers a multitude of possibilities.
In short, apart from the use that is difficult to beginners (which requires patience) is a good choice.

Pierre-Luc Demers's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Rocktron Prophesy
That's my opinion THE most complte machine I've seen until now. The Prophesy includes a lamp in between and pramp is digital (but particulirement grain-like lamps). Between its tuner is really handy to avoid the "noise" before a receiver branch can cause. It allows more connections if more convenient rackmount possde a well-stocked

It contains 4 eq (a pr one post at a global and a pramp particulirement which is useful). The overall affects all sounds which allows a quick adjustment if we have to adapt to the acoustics of a particular location. The effects are very comprehensive and Prophesy to configure the order in which the signal passes through the different effects.

Excellent machine. So much for the live studio el.


The configuration is not easy for someone who learns at the same time a machine of this type is not Designed for someone who learns

It is easy to make sounds as good given the quality of pramp.

The manual is clear and can be Tlcharger VERSION in French on the website of Rocktron (

Trs complete and pe dpart intimidating but tamed in time to say and then the millions of opportunities are the arguments that makes this pramp in my opinion the best.

By Jai still against the problem of tapdelay I can not operate. I think not using the right footswitch but I can not find an explanation ....


Basically we can say that it allows all types of sounds imagineable with superior quality.


I have been using Mainetti six months and each day I love him more.

What I like most is undoubtedly the infinite possibilities it offers and the quality of sound.

Jai dja the chameleon and the valve voodu rocktron so I'm pretty knowledgeable in the preamp Rocktron appeal. I also test the Triax, the jmp-1 and several heads Valvestate amp like the XXX, 5150 (both sries) and I am convinced that the prophesy DEFINITIONS is the best.

Its price is but one lev preamp that quality (which allows for the studio as much as the live by the way) I find it normal.

I already do the steps to acquire a second (jai 3 groups and 3 different kit) hh
