Universal Audio updates OX Amp Top Box firmware to v1.2

Universal Audio

Universal Audio released OX Amp Top Box firmware v1.2 featuring a collection of 4x12 cabs with vintage & modern 30-watt British speakers for hard rock and metal, new combo cabs loaded with iconic high-headroom, extended range speakers for huge clean tones, 27 new RIG presets, and footswitch controls for fast and easy toggling of OX's studio-grade effects.

UA says:

OX is a premium reactive load box and guitar recording system, designed to give guitarists perfectly studio-miked amp sounds from their existing tube amp. OX lets users play and record tube amps in their ideal sweet spots — from the edge-of-breakup to fully cranked — with perfect dynamics at any volume level, and with stunning mic, room, and speaker cabinet emulations at the turn of its RIG knob.

New OX v.1.2 cabinet/speaker models include: a late '60s Fender Twin Reverb with vintage JBL D-120Fs, a 4x12 birch Marshall cabinet with Celestion 30-watt "Greenbacks," a 4x12 Marshall 1960 TV cab with Celestion Vintage 30s, and a 4x12 Mesa/Boogie extra deep cabinet with Celestion Vintage 30s.

Using OX Amp Top Box, guitarists can quickly audition a range of expert cabinet/mic/room combinations — and may find that they never need to mic their tube amp again.

OX Amp Top Box — Key Features:

  • Premium, no-compromise analog reactive load box and guitar recording system for tube guitar amps.
  • Instant album-quality mic and speaker cabinet tones via front-panel "RIG" control.
  • Get record-ready sounds quickly with expertly-placed virtual mics — no miking needed.
  • Five finely-tuned amp attenuation levels — from off to whisper quiet to full band volume.
  • UA Dynamic Speaker Modeling emulates speaker breakup and cone cry.
  • Choose from 22 speaker cabs, six cabinet mics, and six room mics.
  • Studio mixer with 2 independent close mics, and stereo room & mic modeling.
  • Hands-free toggling of OX's studio-grade EQ, compression, delay, and reverb with up to three external footswitches.
  • Selectable 4, 8, and 16-ohm operation.
  • Front-panel Headphone out for silent practice with cranked tones.
  • Balanced TRS line outs and S/PDIF digital outs for stereo recording.
  • Pair with OX app (Windows 10, iPad, or Mac) over Wi-Fi for editing and saving presets.
