---AMP--- The amp itself is quite small, about the size of a small shoebox for kids shoes. It power is something that rivals my more expensive amp that i spent about twice the money on. It works as a speaker for your computer that is very clear and can more than triple your PC/ laptop volume. The plugin for guitar cable is very sturdy and hold very tight so you can play without worry of the cable moving around or slipping out. you can play both bass guitar and standard guitar since it has its own built in sounds card and the software effects apply to both. The power cable for the amp is about 4 feet long and i find it to not be long enough at times but it is a very basic usb power cable and can be found at any electronics store for cheap if you need a longer one.
---SOFTWARE--- The software is very easy to install and has updates and patches available for any system (mac, xp, vista both 32 an 64 bit now) the website has many helpful tips to get the best performance out of even the most basic old laptop. The software is so easy to use, i figured it out without even cracking the book. I fiddled with settings and watched a quick 10 minute video on youtube to learn a few more details and i was using it like a pro. There are many presets to accommodate popular songs and some that are great fun to just play and see how they sound playing your favorite songs. It's a simple drag and drop to add effects, and you double click on any effect/amp/etc. to chose from all VOX products. You WILL be able to get the correct sound of ANY song you desire with this software!Read more ›
I'll start by giving a brief product overview through my experience with the unit, a little bit more information than is in the description. The VOX jamVox is quite possibly the ultimate computer accessory for guitarists. The contents of the box include an installation manual, an installation CD, two CD's of backing tracks from Hal Leonard, a USB cable, and the JamVOX speaker unit. One bit of minor disappointment was that there was no printed user's manual; however, I found the digital copy on the installation CD. Unfortunately almost no software OEMs include printed manuals of any use any more, so no worse than other software/hardware units. I immediately installed the jamVOX software as directed on the installation CD itself and in the included installation manual. Installation was quick, and I heeded the warning on the disc (disc cover and the software on the screen) not to connect the jamVOX until the software had been installed. After that I connected the unit as directed and proceeded to start the JamVOX software as directed. This is the second, and thankfully, last bit of disappointment I experienced with the unit. The software would not start, stating that the correct driver did not install correctly (I am using 64bit Win Vista). So I searched for this problem online, and saw others had similar issues but I didn't find a consensus fix. I did however find that the official VOX product website had updated software (ver 1.51 versus the ver 1.0 software on the disc). Once I downloaded and installed the updated software, the program started right up.Read more ›
As others have stated VOX has poor customer service and lack of updates for their products. Go to their poor website and if you go to their new Jamvox website click on the links above for contact, and it shows a forum link, but it is broken..also try to email them one time and see what you get! Good luck with that!
The positve reviews here seem to be reps or someone associated with VOX to push their product!
When I purchased this, it was listed as *sold by* and *shipping from* Amazon.
Sam Ash had (and may still) be associating this product's ID with a VOX foot pedal instead of the JamVOX.
I haven't had enough time with this yet but hope to update this review.
For now I'll just say that the unit is small enough to store easily under a bed or behind a desk, and I'm very impressed with the preset sound modeling. "Eruption" sounds dead-on. The models are good enough to immediately inspire playing in different genres without a lot of thought. And the drum loops included actually sound pretty good as well.
My first test with extracting the guitar track from an mp3 yielded a very muted but still present guitar track but I think this is something that might take some learning to tweak, depend on the recording quality and mix, etc. of the song.
My bottom line is that I can plug this into a computer quickly, and play with or without headphones and really have fun again. I'm in a tiny apartment and I can't drag all my gear out of the back of the closet, set it all up and play (at near zero volume). That's a huge bummer when you just want to pick up and play.
Note: This may draw more power when plugged into a laptop, make sure to keep an eye on the battery or plug it in; you can't use the amp without it. If your battery runs out, you're done playing.
