The DigiTech CabDryVR Dual Cabinet Simulator pedal features a selection of 14 all new great sounding guitar and bass cabinet impulse responses. Now you can run direct from your pedal board or preamp through the CabDryVR to your mixing board, in-ear monitors or DAW and get high quality cabinet emulation without the need for a real cabinet. The CabDryVR features dual inputs and outputs, one of which has an optional dry path that can run to your on stage amp input. The CabDryVR Cabinet Tuning Size control was developed for the venerated GNX Series and morphs the resonant peak of the cabinet to create custom cab sizes and tones. Individual output level controls let you balance each cabinet’s volume in the mix. The CabDryVR uses a 9VDC power supply to easily integrate into your existing pedalboard. Note that the CabDryVR is a cabinet and speaker simulator, it does not emulate an amplifier. Some adjustments may be necessary to your gain structure and boost usage when using the CabDryVR. Also for a more "cab in a room" sound, try running a reverb like the DigiTech Polar after the CabDryVR.

What you get with the CabDryVR is access to 7 different guitar cabs and 7 bass cabs. I'm kind of a nerd, so I made a very small reference table that I taped onto the front of the unit, after digging around for what the various cabs were based off of:
G1 - Fender 2x12" (Eminence)
G2 - Vox AC30 (Celestion V30)
G3 - Marshall Slant 4x12" (Greenbacks)
G4 - Marshall Straight 4x12" (Celestion 75T)
G5 - Mesa Dual Rec 4x12" (Celestion V30)
G6 - Custom Cab 4x12" (K85)
G7 - Fender Champ 1x8" (Eminence)
B1 - Flexy 1x15"
B2 - Basic 1x15"
B3 - Big Blue 1x18"
B4 - AmeriTweed 4x10"
B5 - Gold Diamond 4x10"
B6 - Vintage Fridge 8x10"
B7 - Blonde Basement 2x12"
There are dual inputs and outputs (labeled "A" & "B"), and you can do a variety of things with this setup. You can run just run a standard instrument signal (mono) and apply a cabinet to that as a mono output. You could also split a mono signal into two channels to send to two different speakers, using the same or different cab simulators. You can also set "A" to a cab sim, and then "B" to Dry, and then you have the ability to send out a cab sim single plus a dry signal to play into a guitar amp (or capture in a DAW for use with cabs/reamping in the program). I believe you can also run two completely isolated signals through each input/output, so it could service two instruments at the same time (have not tried this). And there are probably countless other possibilities for using the CabDryVR that I'm either forgetting or are beyond my more limited needs.
Why did I want a cab simulator in the first place? Well, I have a pretty good collection of both gain pedals and amp-in-a-box pedals, most of which are designed to go into the front end of a combo amp or head and shape the tone that way. But there are a lot reasons you might want to play directly into a mixer or recording interface, not to mention the obvious fact that you don't need to lug a 30-pound amp around. Distortion/overdrive pedals like the Wampler Pinnacle and Ramble FX Marvel Drive are "preamps", so they have the necessary output to play direct like this. But without a cabinet simulator in between, the frequencies they put out are harsh and abrasive to the point of being unlistenable. By running my favorite gain pedals into the CabDryVR, I have a completely believable amp sound that can be easily recorded or monitored using FRFR speakers or headphones. Throw in a reverb pedal just before or after the cab sim, and you can further expand your sounds. And it's all done without a guitar amplifier anywhere in the signal chain.
There is a 3-color LED that indicates whether the pedal is set for guitar or bass (adjusted with toggle switch on the top), and it apparently flashes red if you are "clipping", which happens when you introduce too strong a signal to the input of the device. When recording, it's also nice to have a separate level control for the cabinet, as opposed to just the preamp pedal. It's a nice way to attenuate volume/output without changing the gain structure of your tone.
Not much has disappointed me about the CabDryVR yet, except that I wish there were just a few more guitar cab options. Some people have complained that you can't use a guitar cab on one output and bass cab on the other, though I believe DigiTech noted a workaround by using B4 as a guitar amp, since I believe it is based off a Fender Bassman (a vintage amplifier originally designed for bass, but popularized as a guitar amp). Also, there is a "size" control for each amp, but it is actually more of a resonance control. It can be a bit touchy, and if set wrong, the CabDryVR won't do much to tame the harsh frequencies of the signal that comes before it.
I should also note that this is a digital product running impulse response files (IR's) with very low latency. As such, it draws about 200mA, and needs to be run with a power supply/wall adapter, not a battery. DigiTech probably should have included their adapter, which they have with several similarly priced products, but it must have been a bit of a challenge to hit a $150 price point with this product, so perhaps that is why it was omitted.
The best thing about the CabDryVR is how much functionality it adds to the gear that I already own. Competitor products would include the AMT Chameleon Cab (cheaper) or Pangea IR loader (about $100) more. There are tons of excellent cab sims, but virtually all of them cost about double what this one does. I think the CabDryVR is excellent for both gigging musicians (in need of a backup option or the ability to send their pedal board directly to a club PA) and many home guitarists (who benefit from the added flexibility of playing into a mixer or recording direct without needing to get an amp involved).
If you just want some solid IRs/cab simulation for recording direct and/or using live on a PA, this pedal is an incredible value. At $70 it's the least expensive stand-alone cab sim hardware I've ever seen and you get way more control over your sound than you would expect with the small selection of IRs for Guitar and Bass. You don't have monitoring latency, CPU usage or glitches to worry about and you get something way more portable that will much work on pretty much anything that can take a 1/4" audio jack. You don't have to worry about if that dinky little laptop can handle processing your guitar or bass to sound better; you can just make it sound right while recording and better yet, what you hear is 100% what you get when you monitor directly. I can't recommend this enough... that is, unless you want to spend $50 more to get the Mooer Radar which is also fantastic and definitely more versatile. Either way though, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
INFO - YES, you can plug in one guitar while still using both outputs (A and B) and combine both outs to create one tone. HIGHLY dynamic. You must choose only one input between Bass or Guitar, not both at the same time. But, some bass cabinets sound great with the guitar input selected.
Recommendation: Make your fine tune adjustments one output at a time, and make those adjustments to the mic position very very subtly.
(the left dial, small knob on the top of each of the left controls). The mic adjustments, shockingly, make a HUGE DIFFERENCE in tone. You can spend all day finding that right sound. Took me only 1 hour. Fell in love.
Just an outstanding pedal. You gotta try it out.

Inoltre, è molto flessibile per il tipo di combinazioni di connessioni che possono essere che può essere realizzate.
Io lo uso per il mio basso selezionando il preset C4 e regolando il bilanciamento di tono con la manopola a sx.
E' un pedale digitale ma vi posso assicurare che non si percepisce nessun ritardo nella risposta.
Se sono a casa lo uso collegato al mio sistema di missaggio suonando con le cuffie.
Se suono live, il canale dry (B) lo mando all'ampli per basso e quello emulato (A) al mixer dell'impianto.
Una parola: PERFETTO.
