Vox ToneLab LE By Feel:
Notes for the Blind User

By
Chris Smart

0.1: Introduction

The following notes are intended for use by the blind or visually-impaired user, or by those who want to get around the unit without relying on the LCD display. They are in no way a substitute for reading both the ToneLab LE User’s Manual and the ToneLab LE Software Editor documentation, but intended as a supplement. If you use a screen reader and the ToneLab Software Editor, I’d love to hear from you. Specifically, are you able to enter parameter values from the keyboard, or copy a particular effect between presets? If you can do these things, I would like to document these processes. If you have configuration files for your screen reader that make the already quite useable Software Editor more accessible to us, please contact me so they can be included with this document. Also, I still need to make or find a list of which parameters in each effect and amp model can be mapped to the Control Switch and Expression Pedal, so I can mark them with an asterisk or similar punctuation. If you can help, please get in touch. Email me at chris_s AT Sympatico dot ca, or contact username jmz93 on either tonelable.com or tonelab.net, smartguitarist on Skype or chris_smart1@hotmail.com on Windows Live! Messenger.

0.2: Manufacturer’s Description

“The ToneLab LE is a pedal board-style guitar amplifier/speaker modeler and effects processor. The new 24-bit Tonelab LE includes a few improvements on its popular predecessor, the Tonelab SE. The first is a new five-mode amp/line out voiced specially for various applications, from playing into different amp types to direct recording to live performance through a PA system. The “Line 2” amp/line setting features an all-new three band Master EQ section modeled after one of the most acclaimed live mixers ever manufactured. This allows you to EQ the sound of your Tonelab LE to suit any room or sound system. For greater flexibility in recording applications, we’ve added a S/P DIF output. The acoustic simulator now offers the choice between three popular acoustic guitar types plus a resonator. Finally, the new Tonelab wouldn’t be complete without some new effects! A new “metal distortion” sound will satisfy your need for extreme gain. A slap reverb rounds out the ambient effects and a new multi-tap chorus gives you independent chorus taps for each of the left, center and right outputs, producing stunning depth and spaciousness.

The power amp section on the ToneLab LE features our patented VOX Valve Reactor circuitry. This unique technology enables these units to provide the sound, feel and dynamic range that, until now, were only possible with amultitude of all-tube amplifiers. The Valve Reactor circuit uses a 12AX7 dual triode vacuum tube, a virtual output transformer and a dummy speaker circuit that simulates the reactive load of a real speaker. It reconfigures itself so that its characteristics are the same as the amps it’s modeling (class A, class AB, negative feedback circuit, etc.). This means that all of the nuances of the original amp model including sound, feel, distortion and presence are reproduced.”
