Peavey & Muse Research release the MuseBox Musical Instrument & Effects Module

Muse Research

Peavey and Muse Research have announced that MuseBox, the new plug-and-play, software-powered musical instrument and effects module for electric and acoustic guitar, keyboards, vocals, and drums, is now available from Peavey Electronics dealers throughout North America.

MuseBox, a collaboration between Peavey Electronics and Muse Research, makes an extensive library of essential studio-quality sounds and effects available to musicians and audio professionals in an affordable, compact and easy-to-use package.

MuseBox runs virtual instruments and effects software, the same technology used in the production of today's hit records and used on stage by the world's biggest touring bands. What's different is that MuseBox enables musicians of all types to take these software-based synths, sounds and effects from the studio to the stage with ease and stability.

The MuseBox is pre-loaded with more than 4GB of professional virtual instruments and effects, including an assortment of essential keyboard sounds, reverbs, chorus, compressors and more—a total software package valued more than $900 featuring Universons, Wave Arts, AAS, Camel Audio, ForeFront, MuTech and others, as well as Peavey's ReValver amp modeling software—all built-in, pre-authorized and ready to play.

MuseBox is powerful and versatile enough for the entire band, and even the sound engineer. Thanks to its extensive range of presets, flexible software and versatile I/O options, you can play guitar through it, sing through it, mix through it, play along to backing tracks, and of course, create lush keyboard sounds with a MIDI controller. Guitarists can use it to run amp-modeling software, multi-effects libraries and more. Singers can enhance their vocals with reverb, compression, de-essing and harmonization in real time. Keyboardists will love the hundreds of sampled, modeled, and synthesized sounds with low latency and stability, while drummers can choose from an extensive collection of acoustic, electronic and exotic hand percussion and pitched percussion sounds.

The versatility of MuseBox also makes it ideal for live sound engineers who want the flexibility to process effects for front-of-house and monitors in a stable, portable, versatile box that is built for the road with its steel and aluminum construction.

Using software-based instruments and effects is easy with MuseBox due to its innovative user-interface design. The SoundFinder feature lets you simply browse through different categories of sounds or effects, and select any one of the thousands of factory presets with the simple turn of a knob and press of a button. In addition, SoundFinder's preset architecture makes it easy to create new presets by combining different sounds or effects together, and then saving them as user presets that can be quickly recalled during a gig, either from the front panel or by simply connecting a footswitch to the back of the unit for hands-free operation.

MuseBox is not only simple to use, it's also very powerful and designed to grow with you as you explore the world of virtual instruments and effects. Musicians can connect a VGA monitor, mouse and keyboard directly to the unit and take advantage of the DuoHost graphical user interface, which lets you explore and create your own presets or take advantage of the more advanced features like "MIDI Learn." MuseBox also has a CF-expansion card slot on the back, which will allow users to add new virtual instruments and effects as they become available from Muse Research.

MuseBox's flexible I/O options include stereo, 24-bit, 48 kHz pro-grade 1/4" rear-panel inputs and outputs, as well as two front-panel guitar/mic inputs with phantom power, and MIDI and USB keyboard inputs.

Pricing & Availability

The MuseBox is available now from authorized retailers with a U.S. MSRP of $1399.99 ($999.99 street). For an expanded list of features, specifications and presets, visit www.peavey.com/musebox.
