Control Elements and Connectors In this chapter, we will describe different control elements of your X V-AMP. All controls and connectors will be explained in detail, and you will also get useful advice on how to use them. 2.1 Basic advice on using the controls Here is some quick information about the most basic and most important control elements of your X V-AMP. Keys (3), (5), (7), (9) and (11) : use these keys to directly select effects settings and operating modes. FX/AMPS control (14) : Uset the right-hand half to select amp simulations in a preset. The corresponding LED lights up. Use the left-hand half to select the effects. When effects blocks are selected using the keys (7), (9) and (11), the LED on the current effect lights up. TAP LED (12) : The frequency at which the LED blinks indicates the speed and/or the rhythm of a delay or a modulation effect (also see chapter 6 EFFECTS PROCESSOR ). By keeping TAP depressed, 2nd FUNCTION (13) is activated. By doing this, the second level of the FX/AMPS control (14) (gray) and ADJUST (1) is accessible. Footswitches UP (16) and DOWN (17) : Used to select presets; these presets are indicated in the DISPLAY (15). Footswitches UP (16) and DOWN (17) are also used to activate the BYPASS/TUNER function (also see chapter 7 TUNER ). DISPLAY LEDs: PEDAL ASSIGN indicates the function to which the pedal has been assigned. CONFIGURATION permanently indicates the selected operating mode. (1) ADJUST: Used to perform various adjustments. You can find more information about using ADJUST in the descriptions of individual control elements as well as in chapter 6 EFFECTS PROCESSOR. GAIN. Use this control to regulate the drive of the amp simulation, i.e. the degree of distortion. Use it when none of the keys (3), (5), (7), (9) or (11) are blinking. VOLUME: If you hold the TAP key (12) depressed, using ADJUST lets you adjust the volume of a preset. (2) STORE. The presets on the X V-AMP are saved using the STORE key. If the STORE key lights up, it means that a preset has been changed but has not yet been stored. By keeping the STORE key depressed (longer than 2 seconds), the newly edited preset is stored. When the STORE LED is no longer lit up, the stored preset shown in the display is now active. 5 X V-AMP LX1-X User Manual (15) (14) (19) (20) (21) (22) ADJUST 1 (1) GAIN / VOLUME (2) CONFIGURATION PEDAL ASSIGN PHONES SPEED AMP + FX EFFECT STORE FX ONLY VOLUME COPY TUNER WAH TAP 2 ND FUNCTION (13) (3) CONFIGURE BASS EQ PRESENCE NOISE G. COMPR. DELAY MODUL. PEDAL REVERB (18) BYPASS/TUNER (4) (5) (6) (16) Fig. 2.1: X V-AMP user interface (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12) (17) After briefly pressing the STORE key (the STORE key blinks), use the UP/DOWN keys to select another storage slot. By briefly pressing the STORE key yet again, the save procedure is canceled. Complete the save by keeping the STORE key depressed for longer than 2 seconds. You can restore a single factory preset by keeping the TAP and STORE keys depressed simul-taneously for longer than 2 seconds. You can also restore all factory presets. This is done by keeping both TAP and STORE keys depressed for longer than 2 seconds and then powering up the X V-AMP (i.e. you start the procedure when your X V-AMP is off). (3) NOISE G. The NOISE GATE is active and can be edited when the key LED is lit up. The threshold can be controlled by using ADJUST. When the ADJUST control is turned all the way to the left, the NOISE GATE is off and the LED is no longer lit up. Release is adjusted using the ADJUST control while the TAP key is depressed. How the NOISE GATE works is explained in chapter (4) CONFIGURE. By simultaneously pressing NOISE G. (3) and COMPR. (5), you get to the configuration menu. Use the COMPR. or NOISE G. keys to alternate between indi-vidual operating modes. This way, you can implement a global setting on your X V-AMP that lets you adjust to different studio and live situations. A table with all configurations as well as additional information on this subject can be found in chapter 3. Press COMPR. and NOISE G. simultaneously again to leave CONFIG. mode. (5) COMPRESSOR. Press this key to get to the compressor menu. Use the ADJUST control to regulate ratio, or use TAP + ADJUST to regulate attack. When the ADJUST control is turned all the way to the left, the COMPRESSOR is off and the LED is no longer lit up. How the compressor works is explained in chapter (6) BASS EQ. Simultaneously press COMPR. (5) and MODUL. (7) (both LEDs are blinking) to control bass frequencies in a preset. Use ADJUST to increase or decrease low frequencies. Keep TAP pressed while turning ADJUST to determine if you want to affect only the deepest frequencies (ADJUST turned all the way to the left) or if you also want to affect higher bass frequencies. (7) MODULATION. After you press this key (its LED blinks), you can select one of the eight modulation effects by using the FX/AMPS control (14) : Chorus, flanger, phaser, pitch bend, tremolo, rotary, auto wah and P-funk n. You get to the second-layer effects (gray) by keeping the TAP key depressed while you are turning the FX/AMPS control; the 2nd FUNCTION LED lights up. ADJUST controls the effect ratio in the preset. The speed parameter is adjusted using TAP. By hitting MODUL. (7) again, or by selecting a different parameter, you quit. You can find a more detailed description of modulation effects and how they function in chapter 6 EFFECTS PROCESSOR. Modulation effects auto wah, pitch bend and P-Funk n cannot be used simultaneously with Wah Wah. If you select one of these three effects while the pedal is already assigned to the wah wah effect, its assignment to the pedal is annulled (the WAH LED in the display is no longer lit up). Assigning the expression pedal to the Wah Wah effect automatically deactivates auto wah and pitch bend respectively, so that no modulation effect is active (all modulation effect and ADJUST LEDs are no longer lit up). (8) PRESENCE. You activate PRESENCE by simultaneously pressing MODUL. (7) and DELAY (9) (both LEDs are blinking). Starting at the middle setting of the ADJUST control (neutral), the share of PRESENCE (high frequencies) can be lowered or increased in a preset. Keeping TAP pressed while you turn ADJUST allows you to determine the center frequency of the filter. 6 X V-AMP LX1-X User Manual (9) DELAY. Pressing this key adjusts DELAY. A delay lets you create a lag in the input signal similar to an echo. Use ADJUST to regulate the intensity; when you keep TAP pressed while you turn ADJUST, you set up feedback. The rhythm in which you tap at the TAP key determines the time between individual echos. (10) PEDAL ASSIGN. Press DELAY (9) and REVERB (11) simultaneously to assign a function to the EXPRESSION PEDAL ( PA is shown in the display). At the same time, one of the right-hand LEDs in the display is blinking (speed, effect, volume, wah). Now you can assign one of the following functions to the pedal: Speed: to dial up the SPEED parameter of an effect, hit the respective effect module key ((7) or (9)) and then briefly press TAP: SPEED, TAP and effect key LEDs are blinking. Effect: To modify effect parameters mix, depth, feedback and decay using the pedal, press the effect module key of your choice and then modify the desired parameter (either using Adjust or Adjust + TAP): the EFFECT LED blinks in the display (2nd Function and the effect key where applicable). Volume: If you want to use the expression pedal to control the volume, hold TAP and briefly move ADJUST. The 2nd FUNCTION and VOLUME LEDs blink. Gain: To use the expression pedal to control GAIN in a preset, you only have to quickly modify GAIN using ADJUST (VOLUME LED blinks); then, use the pedal to modify GAIN. Wah Wah: Pressing the expression pedal automatically selects the wah function. The Wah LED blinks. Summary: To assign a parameter to the expression pedal, you have to activate PEDAL ASSIGN and modify the desired parameter. Auto wah and pitch bend are automatically deactivated as long as the expression pedal controls the Wah Wah effect. To confirm a new selection you made and to abandon PEDAL ASSIGN, hit DELAY ( 9 ) and REVERB (11) at the same time again. (11) REVERB. Press this key to set up REVERB. A reverb effect lets you simulate room characteristics in the overall sound. You can choose between 4 different reverb types: Ambience, cathedral, spring and reverb. The FX/AMPS control lets you select between reverb and cathedral, and if you keep TAP pressed at the same time, then you can additionally select between spring and ambience (second layer). The adjustable reverb parameters are decay and mix. ADJUST controls the mix, and ADJUST + TAP control decay. A description of individual reverb types can be found in chapter 6.2. (12) The TAP key performs several functions: GAIN/VOLUME: Use ADJUST to determine the amount of distortion (GAIN). If you keep TAP pressed while you move ADJUST, you control the volume of a preset instead. When editing effect blocks, ADJUST lets you access the second function layer for parameter settings. FX/AMPS control and 2nd FUNCTION: Hitting TAP lets you select the second layer of the effects and AMP simulations (gray). Speed: Keep hitting the TAP key in the rhythm of a song, and the selected effect (delay or modulation effect) adjusts itself automatically to the tapped rhythm. (13) 2nd FUNCTION. As soon as any second-layer function on the FX/AMPS control is dialed up, 2nd FUNCTION LED lights up. (14) FX/AMPS. A LED on the FX/AMPS control indicates the current AMP model. If the 2nd FUNCTION LED is also lit up, you re dealing with one of the secondlayer AMP models (gray); if not, then one of the first-layer AMP models is selected (white). By turning FX/AMPS (and by holding tap, if necessary), you can switch to another AMP model. IF the effect block is selected (MODULATION (7), DELAY (9) or REVERB LED (11) blinks), the respective effect type can be read-off and selected using the FX/AMPS control. By turning the FX/AMPS control (and by holding TAP, if necessary), you can switch to another effect. If one of the AMPS LEDs lights up (right half), use ADJUST to control either GAIN or VOLUME. If one of the EFFECT LEDs lights up (left half), use ADJUST to control the respective effect parameters. (15) The DISPLAY indicates which preset has been selected and gives information on the modifications done during editing. When the TUNER is activated, the DISPLAY indi-cates which tone is played on the instrument you connected to your X V-AMP. Fig. 2.2: X V-AMP display (16) DOWN. Use this footswitch to dial down presets (99-00, downwards). Keep the footswitch depressed longer to skip through the presets downwards. (17) UP. Use this footswitch to dial up presets (00-99, upwards). Keep the footswitch depressed longer to skip through the presets upwards. By simultaneously pressing both footswitches, the TUNER/BYPASS mode is activated. To deactivate it, you can simply press one of the footswitches. Additional information on the TUNER can be found in chapter 7 TUNER. (18) EXPRESSION PEDAL. The expression pedal controls (among others) the Wah Wah effect. The switch located beneath the pedal switches the Wah Wah on and off in this case. PEDAL ASSIGN lets you assign another function to the pedal (e. g. volume, effect intensity etc.). See also (10). (19) LINE OUT/PHONES. You can take the audio signal of your X V-AMP at the LINE OUT/PHONES connector. You can either connect your headphones to the X V-AMP, or connect the X V-AMP to a mixer. (20) MONO AMP OUT. Connect the input of your guitar amp here. In contrast to the LINE OUT/PHONES signal, this signal is reproduced with a level that is 20 db lower. (21) INSTRUMENT INPUT. This is the 1/4 jack input of your X V-AMP. Connect your instrument here. Always use high-quality 1/4 mono jack cables.
