Universal Audio, a leading manufacturer of professional audio recording hardware and software, is pleased to introduce Windows 10 compatibility for OX Amp Top Box.
Now, Windows 10 desktop and laptop users can use OX’s 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.
A TEC Award winner at the 2019 NAMM show, OX Amp Top Box was also the recipient of Sound On Sound’s Readers’ Choice Award for Best New Guitar Technology Product.
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.
OX Amp Top Box has an estimated street price of $1,299.
