Vox expanded its line of Mac compatible guitar amp and effects modeling pedals this week with the introduction of the
ToneLab ST. The new stompbox was unveiled at the Musikmesse trade show in Frankfurt, Germany.
The ToneLab ST features two footswitches and an assignable expression pedal. You can make and store up to 50 presets or use the included presets that come with the device. The ToneLab even comes with 20 “song specific” presets, modeled after classic rock songs.
The stompbox comes with 33 amp models, 11 speaker cabinets and 25 effects that include traditional pedals and rack-style effects. What sets the ToneLab ST apart is a real 12AX7 vacuum tube, allowing the device to better capture the tone of tube amps.
The ToneLab ST connects to your Mac via USB, allowing you to edit and create presets with the included librarian software. The output can be used to feed an external amp and an input to jam along with MP3 files or CDs.
The ToneLab ST will be available in late April and will cost $275.
