Re: OT: Fuzz

I agree.  Speaking of modelers and tubes AND looping, the Vox Tonelab 
SE RULES.  8 second looper, real 12ax7 valve and a number of fuzzbox 
emulations that are pretty good.  It's the only modeler I tried that 
really felt like you had a bunch of stomp boxes hooked to a nice old 
tube amp.

One weird thing about it is when I got it it was set to "amp" out 
(expecting to see a guitar amp) so I switched it to "Line" for my 
mixer.  I had this ugly high end on a lot of the patches I couldn't 
seem to dial out.  (think David Torn)  I almost took it back but I kept 
thinking it sounded great at first... oh yeah, that was when it was set 
to Amp out.  At first it sounded like everything was covered by a wet 
blanket, but after a bit of tweaking the treble and presence viola!  
Really sweet sounds *and* I got the buzzsaw synth fuzzbox tone I was 
looking for. (I wasn't getting them in the "Line" out setting, so 
that's why I posted this topic in the first place)

Another great thing about this box is the delays react like an old 
Digitech 8000.  When you tweak the delay time you get all kinds of 
beautiful madness.  Good times.  Same holds true for the other effects 
as well.

I'm going to make a recording with it tomorrow and I'll post the
