VOX announces the VOX SOUNDBOX mini, a stereo multi-purpose amp that's so compact and lightweight you can use it as easily as a portable music speaker system. The proprietary sound technology fostered with VOX's guitar amps has now been packed into a compact body. An aluminum body that exudes a sense of quality, a new VOX logo, and a rounded, pop-feeling design featuring a chic red and black color scheme make this a package that you'll want to take anywhere. The VOX SOUNDBOX mini can also be operated on batteries, so you can use it indoors or outdoors, not only as a guitar amp but also as portable amp that you can enjoy connected to your keyboard, mic, or audio player.
Expand your sound with KORG "Acoustage" technology*
As its name suggests, the VOX SOUNDBOX mini is a small amp, but it features a WIDE switch that activates KORG's "Acoustage" technology, enabling the two adjacently-placed speakers to project an expansive sound field that you would expect to hear only from two separated speakers. Any sound source that you connect to this amp---guitar, keyboard, or portable audio player---will expand before your eyes, enveloping you in wonderful sound.
*What is Acoustage (Virtual Surround Technology by KORG)?
This is KORG's proprietary and revolutionary virtual surround technology that generates a unique and personal acoustic space. With just front stereo speakers, it can produce an unprecedented and unique three-dimensional acoustic experience. The actual playback system is acoustically analyzed, and the appropriate optimizations are applied to obtain the maximum effect.
Amp input section that supports a variety of instruments including guitar, bass, and keyboard
The amp input section of the VOX SOUNDBOX mini gives you a choice of 11 amp types that are suitable for a variety of input sources. From a clean sound for electric guitar, amps suitable for hard rock, modeling amps for bass or acoustic guitar, as well as amps with a flat response for keyboard input or audio devices, you can choose from a wide range of settings to meet the needs of any situation.
Built-in effects, so you can connect your guitar and enjoy playing right away!
In addition to Amp. modeling, the VOX SOUNDBOX mini provides four high-quality effects (compressor, chorus, flanger, tremolo) and four types of delay/reverb effects. You can use the TAP switch to easily set the delay time. Just connect your guitar, turn on the effect, and then turn on the WIDE to add the surround effect; you won't want to stop playing!
Expand your applications by using instrument, mic, and audio player simultaneously!
In addition to being a great choice as a musical instrument amp, the VOX SOUNDBOX mini also supports a wide variety of input sources. It provides an AUX IN jack and a MIC jack, and allows you to use them simultaneously. While listening to music played back from your portable audio player, you can connect a mic plus your guitar, keyboard, or other instrument, and hear all of your sound through this single unit. The MIC jack input provides a dedicated knob for adjusting the amount sent to the delay/reverb effect, so you'll be able to get the perfect sound.
Center Cancel effect provided on the AUX IN input
The Center Cancel effect can minimize the volume of vocal or solo part from the music source that's being input via the AUX IN input. This is a convenient way to obtain a minus-one practice setup for your vocal or guitar.
A design that you'll want to take with you, plus extended battery life
The VOX SOUNDBOX mini features a pop design that emanates the retro feel of a cassette tape recorder with radio player unit from the past which is like a portable music speaker system in present-day. The eye-catching aluminum handle will make you want to take this amp with you. With an aluminum diecast body that exudes a sense of quality, the VOX SOUNDBOX mini weighs a mere 2.4 kg for easy transportation. It can be operated on an AC adapter or on six AA batteries, making it an ideal choice for outdoor or street use. It's a convenient amp that you can take anywhere.
Tuner function is built in
A tuner ('E' note only) is built in, making it easy to tune a guitar or other instrument connected to the GUITAR jack.
Mountable on a mic stand
The bottom panel of the VOX SOUNDBOX mini has a mounting hole that lets you mount the unit on a mic stand. This is extremely useful in a variety of situations such as presentations in a conference room or for storefront events.
