Introduction Congratulations! By purchasing the BASS V-AMP/BASS V-AMP PRO, you have selected a modern virtual bass amplifier that sets new standards in the world of bass preamps. Our primary goal was to achieve the classic sound of bass amps by using Physical Modeling and implementing the newest DSP effects. Following the tremendous success of our V-AMP and its successor V-AMP 2, with the BASS V-AMP/BASS V-AMP PRO we are finally able to offer bass players the same diversity of sound. However, we went a step further and expanded the concept to include items of interest to keyboarders and electric/acoustic guitar players. Those who have already used the V-AMP or the V-AMP 2 will appreciate the BASS V-AMP/ BASS V-AMP PRO as a terrific improvement. We wanted to create two devices that would stir conversations in years to come: the BASS V-AMP/BASS V-AMP PRO is universally usable and offers authentic amp and even speaker sounds all this without having to transport heavy equipment! Additionally, the most modern multi-effects processors assure unprecedented tonal freedom. In short, the BASS V-AMP/BASS V-AMP PRO gives you a sound machine sporting the hottest features of the day. Future EPROM updates will make sure your BASS V-AMP/BASS V-AMP PRO always has the latest software and features. BEHRINGER is a company in the field of professional audio studio technology. We have been successfully developing products for live and studio applications for years. Among those are microphones and 19 gear of all kinds (compressors, enhancers, noise gates, tube processors, headphone amplifiers, digital effects units etc.), monitoring and PA loudspeakers as well as professional live and recording mixing consoles. Our entire technical know-how has gone into creating your BASS V-AMP/BASS V-AMP PRO. To top it all, we worked together with professional bass players, whose sound suggestions led to the creation of original artist presets. Just a single glance at the separate preset sheet will be enough to completely amaze you. Flexibility is what matters most in the music industry. Bass players should be able to offer a wide array of different sounds, and should also be able to temporarily adjust to the demands of home recording, studio and live applications. Bulky amp combinations are out of sync with today s times precisely because of this reason. The BASS V-AMP/BASS V-AMP PRO offers you a maximum set of features in a compact unit that can be figured out in no time. But enough talking: Nothing will convince you more than the shear joy of what you will hear and feel the first time you play with your BASS V-AMP/BASS V-AMP PRO. You will experience a latest-generation virtual bass amplifier with fascinating features: Extreme sound variety and flexible output routing options for bass players Multi effects, amp and loudspeaker simulations for keyboard players Remarkably clean, high-gain sound and acoustic simulations for electric guitars Sound enhancer for acoustic guitar sound pickup Uncompromising loop/sampler function, super-phat analog bass synth and the best distortion pedal simulations. 1.1 Before you get started The BASS V-AMP/BASS V-AMP PRO was carefully packed at the assembly plant to assure its secure transport. Should the condition of the cardboard box suggest that damage may have taken place, please inspect the unit immediately and look for physical indications of damage. Damaged units should NEVER be sent directly to us. Please inform the dealer from whom you acquired the unit immediately as well as the transportation company from which you took delivery. Otherwise, all claims for replacement/repair may be rendered invalid. Please make sure the unit is provided with sufficient ventilation, and never place the BASS V-AMP/BASS V-AMP PRO on top of an amplifier or in the vicinity of a heater to avoid the risk of overheating. Before plugging the unit into a power socket, please make sure you have selected the correct voltage! Power is supplied via the cable included with the unit. All requiered safety precautions have been adhered to. When you hook up your BASS V-AMP/ BASS V-AMP PRO to the mains, the unit is automatically turned on. Please make sure that the unit is grounded at all times. For your own protection, you should never tamper with the grounding of the cable or the unit itself. MIDI connections (IN, OUT/THRU) use standard DIN plug-in connectors. Data transfer takes place via the dry-contact optical couplers.
