V-AMP- How Do I Edit And Store An Effects Preset On My X V-AMP?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

X V-AMP: Modifying and storing an effect preset

In this example, we will set up the X V-AMP with a configuration to use the headphone amp, using 'neutral EQ' and with speaker/amp simulations.  Next we will select preset '7', modify settings, add use of the expression pedal to control effect amount, and store the modified preset into memory.

 

Selecting a configuration mode and global volume and input gain levels:

In this example, we will use a configuration that allows for use of the headphone output with a FLAT: Neutral EQ, and the ability to hear the changes we make to speaker/amp simulations.
Press the NOISE G. and COMPR. Buttons at the same time to make them both flash, then press on either button to select configuration 'P1'.
Use the ADJUST knob to select the global output volume while listening through headphones.
Press the TAP button and use the ADJUST knob to set the input gain level to work with your particular instrument.
Press the NOISE G. and COMPR. Buttons at the same time to exit this mode.

 

Selecting the preset to be altered:

Turn on power to the X V-AMP, and use the UP and/or DOWN buttons to select preset '7'.

 

Selecting an amp simulation:

Press and hold the TAP button while turning the FX/AMPS knob (the 2nd FUNCTION LED will be lit) to select 'V-AMP CRUNCH' (the lettering will be in grey).

 

Adjusting Compression ratio:

Press the COMP. button to make it flash, then use the ADJUST knob to set the desired compression ratio.

 

Adjusting the Noise Gate Threshold and Release:

Press the NOISE G. button to make it flash, and then turn the ADJUST knob to set the 'THRESHOLD' point for the Noise Gate. 
Press and hold the TAP button while turning the ADJUST knob to set the Noise Gate 'RELEASE'.

 

Selecting a modulation effect and adjusting three effect parameters:

1. Press the MODUL. button to make it flash, and the LED in the FX portion of the FX/AMPS knob dial will also flash.


2. If you turn the FX/AMPS knob at this point you can choose between CHORUS, PHASERS, ROTARY or AUTO WAH effects, or you can press and hold the TAP button while you turn the FX/AMPS knob to choose between FLANGERS,

 

TREMOLOS, PITCH BEND, or P-FUNK?D effects.  In this case, we will use the TAP button and FX/AMPS knob to choose 'FLANGERS' (the 2nd FUNCTION LED will be lit while you are doing this).


3. We will now adjust the 'SPEED', and you do this by pressing the TAP button several times to create a 'beat' that the unit will use to set the speed of the Flanger effect.


4. Turn the ADJUST knob to determine the effect 'ratio' in the preset.


5. Press and hold the TAP button while turning the ADJUST knob to set the second effect parameter, which is 'resonance' (Flanger effect feedback to the original signal).


6. For the third parameter adjustment, press and hold the TAP and MODUL. buttons while turning the ADJUST knob to chose between the four possible Flanger effect 'models' available.  We will choose model '2' for this purpose (details are in sec. 6 of the manual).


7. Press the MODUL. button to quit modulation effect programming.

 

Selecting a Delay effect and adjusting parameters:

Press the DELAY button to make it flash, and turn the FX/AMPS knob to select 'ST. DELAY' (Stereo Delay).
Press on the TAP button several times with a steady 'beat' to set the Delay speed.
Turn the ADJUST knob to modify the 'mix' of original signal with the Delay effect.
Press and hold the TAP button while turning the ADJUST knob to set the amount of Delay feedback.
Press the DELAY button to leave Delay programming.

 

Selecting a Reverb effect and adjusting parameters:

Press the REVERB button to make it flash, then press and hold the TAP button while turning the FX/AMPS knob to select 'SPRING' Reverb (in grey lettering).
Use the ADJUST knob to determine the mix with Spring Reverb versus 'dry' signal.
Press and hold the TAP button and turn the ADJUST knob to set the Spring Reverb effect feedback level.
Press the REVERB button to leave this part of effect programming.

 

Adjusting the PRESENCE (high frequency) level:

Press the MODUL. and DELAY buttons at the same time to make them both flash.
Use the ADJUST knob to determine the PRESENCE level in the mix.
Press and hold the TAP button while turning the ADJUST knob to select the center frequency of the filter use for PRESENCE.
Press the MODUL. and DELAY buttons briefly to exit the PRESENCE level of programming.

 

Adjusting BASS EQ settings:

Briefly press the COMPR. And MODUL. buttons at the same time to make them flash.
Use the ADJUST knob to determine the level of low frequencies.
Press and hold the TAP button and use the ADJUST knob to affect the deepest frequencies (to the Left) or higher bass frequencies (to the Right).
Briefly press the COMP. And MODUL. buttons at the same time to exit programming.

 

Assigning use of the Expression Pedal to control FLANGER effect intensity:

Press the DELAY and REVERB buttons at the same time to make 'PA' (for Pedal Assign) appear in the display.
Press the MODUL. button to make it flash, then turn the ADJUST knob, and you will see the EFFECT LED in the display area flash.
Press the DELAY and REVERB buttons at the same time to exit the Pedal Assign function.

 

Storing the new settings into a preset location:

Press the NOISE G. and COMP.  buttons to make preset '7' appear in the display, and the STORE LED will be lit.
Press and hold the STORE button for about two seconds and the new settings you?ve created will now be part of preset '7'.

 

Note:  This guide serves as a general example to help you get started, and there are other controls and connections that could be used when using different configuration modes or effects.
