Behringer V-Amp 2
Amp simulator (digital) with major effects (reverb, delay, wah, compressor, phaser, flanger, tremolo and noise gate).
Editable via a little program very well be downloaded from the Behringer site that lets you change all the settings trèsfacilement by plugging the amp v PC via MIDI cable not included.

UTILIZATION

General config simple. The few negative opinions (its too sharp, breath, not suited to live, etc ...) seem to result from too rapid a reading of the manual to take full advantage of the potential of the bike ... as usual (: o)). Personally, none of these defects, while bathing!
Very versatile thanks to the general config 2 outputs available to choose from the ignition. 5 options: studio 1 and 2 (stereo) or 1,2,3 LIVE
that can cope with all situations (the studio at the piano bar or the big rock scene for 800 spectators)

Following additional questions to one member, see the downloadable manual point
2 - / usage examples: there are five types of config stereo outputs A and B: 2 for studio-S1 and S2 and 3-Live (L1. L2. L3) = see table on page 10 and 11 for details.
If you plug a headset, it is mandatory mode STUDIO 1. By default, the V amp is factory config STUDIO 1 (this probably explains the criticism is not based on the sound that would amp sucks on a tester / it seems not to have read the doc (: o)) .... )
To change the config, press buttons simultaneously B and D, and select the mode (S1, S2, and L1. L2. Or L3) with the arrows
It has tons of potential effects = / 3-band equalizer with and without simulation of HP, the ULTRA-G / amp simulation effects + / amp simulations and HP / 3-band EQ effects Studio + 1, etc etc ...

Used in conjunction with the FCB 1010 MIDI foot controller, absolutely indestructible (but a bit complicated to manage!) Over a 1 year

It still sounds good, both at home and studio headphones,
on stage for concerts
(Twenty concerts) or I use the config LIVE L3:
direct connection of the output of the V L = Left amp (without simultaneous HP) on my HH guitar amp that I use as a personal return
+ Direct connection of the output of V R = Right amp (with simultaneous output HP) on the mixing of the sound: the sound engineer does not need to transplant my amp with a mic and gets much better than its exit "line out" of my amp.

The system configuration is well thought out, the convenient foot switch is stronger than the rest.
Indeed (: o)), it does not age well, the V AMP2, it must be protected because of the fragility of the plastic (plastoc knobs in ultra weak) and screen-printed enrollment that began to fade after four concerts. It is easily perfectible BEHRINGER M!

One other downside: the latency is too high when changing sounds: 1 second of silence between the end of casseroles in a clear, self-wah chorus is a bit awkward on stage (the pod line6 poses same problem)

SOUND QUALITY

Considering the price, it's totally stunning ... as usual at Behringer!
One branch, we choose the appropriate config (studio or stage) and it sounds!
Are readily available all: good distortion / overdrive and the crunch of his light,
etc..
In addition to the very convincing simulations, which are worth very much those of the pod line6 (2 + times expensive at the time of my purchase), it was a true comprehensive effects section.
Each effect has three or four parameters, but there is that one knob!
To access it, it is simple to use + the small program downloaded from the Behringer site that lets you change all the settings by connecting the v amp PC via MIDI cable not included.

OVERALL OPINION

Semi pro musician for over 20 years, I had everything, I tried lots of effects!
Progress in 10 years are amazing, but the prices were a bit daunting for amateurs or zicos penniless (redundant!).
With V amp, it's good for much cheaper! very versatile, it fully meets my needs for 1 year +, if only one seriously read the manual and it refines the sound to fit his amp and guitar to his game.
For the price, well worth ca 10 must go for it!

As always, there are better (barely) but it's really more expensive
(Eg Zoom GT9: great, but 450 Euros!!).
And remember that what makes your sound, it is primarily your fingers!!
So we do not forget to work its range and listen to their masters as Clapton, Page, Satriani or! (: O))

therefore +
- Value for money
- The sound (especially if it refines the effects yourself)
- Simulations
- Comprehensive connectivity (a bit fragile in the long run)

and the few -
- High latency when changing sounds: 1 second
- Fragility of the plastic (knobs and jacks) and screen-printed registration

I would definitely do it again this election, the rack can be pro?
