Product Description

VOX--Amplification Ltd.
ToneLab EX Guitar Rack Multi-Effects Pedal

VOX Valvetronix products are renowned for their realistic amp sounds. The Valve Reactor circuitry uses a real 12AX7 vacuum tube to create that true-tube tone. With new performance elements added especially for live use, the ToneLab EX is the latest VOX multi-effect pedal to inherit the sound of the Valvetronix series. Expanding on the powerful Valvetronix amp and cabinet models you're already familiar with, the ToneLab EX now provides 11 stand-alone distortion pedals. These distortion pedals can be used in place of one of the amp head models, providing a truly diverse range of tones to cover many musical styles. Following the cabinet models, the ToneLab EX features a full complement of spatial-type effects such as modulation, reverb, and delay allowing you to complete your guitar sound without requiring any other equipment. A full-sized VOX expression pedal ensures stability while performing. The intuitive Stomp Box mode places six effects on a virtual pedal-board at your feet, with real stomp-box control. The ToneLab EX is the perfect live-performance solution for any guitarist's multi-effect needs.

Tube-Driven Valve Reactor Circuitry

The ToneLab EX carries on the most important benefit of the Valvetronix line: true-tube sound produced by a real 12AX7 triode vacuum tube. VOX created the Valve Reactor to satisfy our belief that the sonic tonal character of tubes can be obtained only by using real vacuum tubes. This unique VOX addition draws a clear distinction between the ToneLab EX and the modeling products from other manufacturers, and generates an overwhelmingly powerful sound unobtainable from other multi-effect units.

Sophisticated Amp and Cabinet Modeling Technology

Throughout history, there have been numerous amps that have inspired guitarists in every era and have been the motivating power behind countless classic performances. The ToneLab EX provides 33 distinct amp models that include such vintage amps, sought-after boutique amps, today's high-gain amps, as well as new amp models developed by VOX. The 11 cabinet models perfectly reproduce the depth, response, and resonances of various combo amps and extension cabinets. By mixing and matching amps and cabinets, the ToneLab EX provides some 363 exciting combinations.

Stand-Alone Drive Pedals

ToneLab EX provides a rich array of front-end, pedal-type effects such as overdrive, distortion, and fuzz. In addition to covering classic models, the ToneLab EX accurately captures today's cutting-edge units as well. These pedal models can be placed in front of the vacuum tube stage in place of the amp models. You can use the GAIN, TREBLE, MIDDLE, and BASS control knobs for detailed control of the parameters, allowing complex, pedal-centric sound editing.

Professional Effects

Effects are an indispensable part of creating any guitar sound. In addition to the 11 stand-alone pedal model effects we discussed above, the ToneLab EX provides 34 additional effects (that a total of 45 different types). These include numerous effects that are often in demand by today's guitarist, such as the VOX wah effect, an array of classic effect pedals, and studio-quality rack effects. All effects can be intuitively controlled using the knobs, ensuring that even beginners will be able to create the sound they want. Four types of delay (including Tap Tempo) and three types of reverb are provided, with a unique knob that allows simultaneous selection of the effect type and adjustment of the mix amount. In addition, noise reduction is also provided, eliminating the hiss that can be a problem with high-gain amp setups.

200 Ready-to-Play Programs, Including 50 Song Presets

100 Preset Programs are provided for immediate use. Included in this group are the 50 Song Preset programs. These Song Presets provide spot-on recreations of the guitar sound used to define a classic guitar track--familiar songs that everyone knows. By using the Song Presets, even guitarists who are unfamiliar with multi-effect units will be able to enjoy the ToneLab EX's versatile sound right away. In addition, you can store 100 User Programs containing the customized settings you've edited and saved yourself. Together with the preset programs, the ToneLab EX delivers a total of 200 instantly accessible programs.

Rugged and Road-Ready, with a Full-Size VOX Expression Pedal

Featuring a durable metal chassis, the ToneLab EX also offers a full-size expression pedal. Providing realtime control of the wah and volume effects that are such vital elements of a live performance, this pedal can also be used to control the parameters of a variety of effects. The popular Quick Assign function borrowed from earlier ToneLab pedals is also provided. The parameter you're currently editing can be instantly assigned to the pedal, so it's easy to change the function of the expression pedal whenever you want.

Intuitive, Dual-Mode Panel Places Great Tone at Your Feet

In the Program Select mode, the pedal switches are used to call up the correct bank and select a program. The ToneLab EX also provides a "Stomp-Box mode," in which the effects assigned to the current program are individually assigned to the foot switches, so that each effect can be turned on and off individually as you play. This mode is perfect for when you are using the same effects throughout a song, but might only need the delay on during the solo. Simply stomp the delay on, without the need to create two separate programs. This second mode conveniently transforms the ToneLab EX into a virtual pedal-board. The high-quality sound of each individual effect rivals that of stand-alone processors, while still providing the enormous convenience of carrying all of these comprehensive amp models and premium effects as a single unit.

Self-Contained, with Built-In Stereo Monitor Speakers

In a first for a ToneLab effects unit, VOX has included miniature stereo speakers allowing you to conveniently listen to your sound without having to connect a guitar amp or headphones. This is extremely convenient for last minute backstage editing, programming in private, or just being able to audition your sounds. Each speaker has its own 0.3 Watt amplifier.

Easy Tuning

The ToneLab EX features a Normal/Strobe chromatic tuner using a newly designed and easy-to-read LED display that's highly visible--even on a dark stage. Compared to previous ToneLab models, the ToneLab EX offers more LEDs, allowing more precise tuning. In addition to the Normal tuning mode, there's also a Strobe mode that makes it fun to tune while watching the flowing LED illumination. Mute and bypass features are also provided, ensuring smooth tuning when you're on stage.

Versatile Ins and Outs

The output jacks provide an Amp/Line output switch to provide optimal sound through any amp or system. For recording, connection to a power amp, or when connecting directly to a mixing console, set the switch to the Line position and enjoy using the Total Equalizer feature to shape the final tone of your sound through the connected system. When connecting the ToneLab EX directly to a guitar amplifier, set this switch to Amp, and select either VOX (For VOX amps), F (for a mostly clean, open back American combo amp), or M (when using a typical British amp with a separate head and a sealed cabinet). This ensures that you'll be able to maximize the ToneLab EX's sonic potential in any situation. An AUX IN jack allows you to connect an external audio source such as your CD/MP3 player so that you can jam along with the sound of your favorite bands. As you can see, the ToneLab EX is designed to support the guitarist in many ways.

USB Computer Audio Interface

The ToneLab EX contains an ASIO-compatible USB audio interface that is ideal for use with any computer. You can use it with your DAW software to easily record audio tracks. Librarian software allows easy transfer of data between users. Plus, you can build up different libraries of programs for different gigs or musical styles. The Librarian software is available as a free download from the VOX website for Windows and Mac.

When bought this pedal, I had enough for a couple boss pedals. But I took a look at this and though it would be a much better deal, and though maybe a couple things would lack due to it being an all in one pedal. When I picked it up I was surprised at how heavy this beast was, all the nobs were solid after opening. Everything just seems set up for a beating, so to those who play on the road and stomp pedals to death, this is an awesome pick. It has a ridiculous amount of options, and surprisingly, really, really good options to boot. The only thing some people may complain about is the fact that it's a tube effects pedal. Not I, I enjoyed this fact, gives my emg pickups a deep satisfying tone. So it having the tube makes the palm muting and the distortion a tad weak, but that is what I have my metal zone for. Everything else is sitting in this versatile, heavy duty, reasonably priced beastie. Buy it and be blown away.

Below is my original review. I had the opportunity to visit this page when Amazon emailed me to see if I could answer a user's question re if it came with a power cord (yes). So I re-read my review and thought I ought to update it. It took me a little over a YEAR to get this finally in working order. Working with Korg (who bought Vox) was awful. Working with their factory authorized repair place was fine, but all the could do is be the shipper/receiver. Korg sent it to me three times either not fixed or with a new problem. The seller ("Music Buys") was no help and told my I'd just have to file a claim with Korg. Korg was awful and finally sent me a new one (after a year of battling with them). When I asked them to just replace it (since they proved they couldn't fix it), they told me they couldn't as the pedal was discontinued. They changed their tune on that when I pointed out that it was still being advertised on their web site. I'll NEVER buy anything made by Korg/Vox again. I can't think of a worse buyer experience I've ever had in my life (59 years). I like the pedal. I live in fear of something every going wrong with it again; the thought of trying to get a repair. So...I'd think 3 times about buying this pedal. If you do, you just better hope it works out of the box and that nothing EVER goes wrong with it.
-------------------------------
Sounds GREAT. I had a KORG for years and was just wanting something with some warmer crunch to it. This is certainly that; sounds great. Wish it had two pedals but not a big deal. After having it for 6 weeks one of the LED's stopped working (I take great care of this, it has had NO mishandling).

I purchased this item because I was new to desktop recording. I also am a beginning "electric" guitar player. That being said, I know that I have a huge learning curve about tones, sounds, and the electric guitar. My son who has played electric guitar for years can tell that I may out grow the pedal in the sense that I'll want some specific sounds that I may not be able to create on the ToneLab EX. Thus the 4 star rating.

The seller was great, fast and affordable.

By A. Gift For You on August 22, 2014
I have been using the Tonelab EX a few times a month in a cover band for a couple years. To me the amp models and cabinet models don't compare to my amps tone. I play through a Peavey Valveking 112 with the EX in the effects loop. I set the amp switch to "line" because it sounds best in the effects loop that way.

PROS
I use the ex like this: I set up an entire bank with the same settings then make them incrementally louder. I start on patch 1 (volume 5). In some venues patch 2 (volume 6.5) is enough boost for solos. In other venues patch 3 (volume 8) is needed for solos. I tried using the expression pedal for volume and it didn't work for me. I'm sure this isn't the way people use multi-effects pedals, but it works for me. I also like "stomp box" mode.

I regularly use the chorus, rotary effect, and occasionally use other modulation effects. They all sound decent to me. I like the tap tempo delay- that was kind of a selling point for me. I think the reverb is fine, but I don't use it.

CONS
The amp models, cabinet models, stand alone pedals, pedal 1 and pedal 2 are completely useless to me with the exception of the v847 wah. Anytime I use any of these effects I can't get my sound to "sit" right in the mix, if that makes sense. All effects in these categories are "tone" based effects. They may work for recording but I don't use the EX for that.

Although I had to work my way through a pretty steep learning curve, I finally got the gist of this wonderfully endowed pedal board. The effects are excellent, the programming is simple (perhaps too simple -- you can program over your existing programs with no warning), and the construction is great.

If you have a solid state amp (I have a Roland JC-77), the tube preamp in the ToneLab is almost worth the price. It delivers everything from warm tube amp mellowness to screaming overdriven microphonics. I suspect tube life may be shortened by all the different bias voltages that must have to be sent to the tube for the different effects. The amp modeling is very good.

The ability to put it into stomp box mode is a little klutzy, but once you are used to it, you will get over it.

The speakers are nice for noodling around without an amp, but even a cheezy, cheap amp will sound pretty good with this as the preamp and effect source.

The only thing I would like to add would be some kind of computer editor for the settings. You can look at them on computer, but you can't change them.

Best buy I've made in years!
