Buying Choices

Universal Audio has announced that OX Amp Top Box is now shipping worldwide. Here's their press release on the subject...

OX is a premium reactive load box and guitar recording system, giving guitarists perfectly studio-miked amp sounds from their existing tube amp. OX lets users play and record tube amps in their ideal sweet spots -- from the edge-of-breakup to fully cranked -- with perfect dynamics at any volume level, and with stunning mic, room, and speaker cabinet emulations at the turn of a knob.

Featuring Universal Audio's breakthrough Dynamic Room Modeling and Dynamic Speaker Modeling, OX is the first amp recording system to accurately emulate speaker breakup and cone cry -- an essential ingredient to organic tube amp tones --  generating additional harmonics and sonic complexity when the amp is cranked.

Using OX Amp Top Box, guitarists can quickly audition a range of expert cabinet/mic/room combinations -- and may find that they never need to mic their tube amp again.

The OX Amp Top Box also features a sleek software app for control over all of OX's parameters via its built-in Wi-Fi, letting guitarists audition, tweak, and store hundreds of cabinet/mic/room presets. Together with a great-sounding tube amp, OX quickly delivers the tastiest album-quality guitar tones of all time.

OX Amp Top Box -- Key Features:

  • Premium, no-compromise analog reactive load box and guitar recording system for tube guitar amps
  • Instant album-quality mic and speaker cabinet tones via front-panel "RIG" control
  • No amp miking experience needed -- get record-ready sounds quickly with expertly-placed mics
  • Five finely-tuned guitar amp attenuation levels --  from off to whisper quiet to full band volume
  • UA Dynamic Speaker Modeling emulates speaker breakup and cone cry
  • World-class Universal Audio EQ, compression, delay, and reverb effects built-in
  • Selectable 4, 8, and 16-ohm operation
  • Front-panel Headphone out for silent practice with cranked tones
  • Balanced TRS line outs, and S/PDIF digital outputs for stereo recording
  • Pair with OX mobile or desktop app over Wi-Fi for editing and saving presets
