OVERVIEW

Take the lead with your favorite bands.

The Vox JamVOX puts together an audio monitor and software so you can extract the guitar from any MP3 and plug into the mix of your favorite bands. Use JamVOX to create instant jam tracks from any song. Best of all, you play lead guitar backed by the original band members.

Vox also accompanies the JamVox guitar practice system with a dedicated full-range USB monitor speaker, so there's no need for complex wiring or any specialized knowledge of computer music.

Great Practice tool and recording interface too
Also you can record using a DAW with it - I use Reaper - run Jamvox, pick a preset you like, minimize it and run Reaper - select JAMVOX as your input and Voila' - it'll record it fine! I also use it as an interface in any DAW - close Jamvox - run DAW and select Jamvox as your input once again then load any Ampsim, Head and Cab or whatever - makes a great 24-bit interface.

I'm more of a weekend musician, and don't have a lot of time for setups. Tried using the Digitech pedals, which are terrific, but I seem to spend more time reading the manual than playing. The Jamvox appears to be the perfect solution. All I have to do is plug it in, select the hardware or group/musician I want to sound like, and start playing. Basically, I have thousands of dollars worth of equipment to drag/drop and play around with. If I had the time, I could spend all day playing with this stuff, but it's just easier to select a hardware setup and start playing.
I did several GTX songs, setup to remove the rhythm guitar, while it does not eliminate the sound, it does lower the volume enough where you can hear your guitar over the track, which is all I needed, and as a bonus, if you get lost during a song, you can stop and figure out how to catch up.
The speaker sound is ok, if your just using the Jamvox as an amp. Running a backing track through the Jamvox while playing doesn't sound good at all. Unless your recording, you should use another source for the backing track, and the Jamvox as an amp.
So what is the future of JamVox? Vox appears to be giving them away as if they are dumping it. I hope not, it appears to be a great idea, maybe it's marketed to musicians who look at it as a toy, while us wanna be, guitar hero's can't get enough. It would probably be a better idea if it was a practice amp, like a Roland micro cube, with the Jamvox stuff built in if you want to use it, and if not, a nice practice amp that doesn't require a computer.

Jam vox

By Tony Fleming

from Alaska

I am having extreme difficult time loading the software and drivers, once resolved, it should be an awesome practice / fun little interface! I guess I am not the only person with these issues! Seems to work much better with Mac than PC so far... Can't wait to get it up and running!

Great tool WHEN IT WORKS

By charles hamby

from Hickory, NC

Great features and a great idea, when/if it works.
When I first got the JamVox installed on my Macbook Pro, it was fantastic! The tones from the software were better than I expected, much better than Garage Band in my opinion. The included backing tracks are a blast to jam with. The interface works great for recording and the I found the monitor speakers to sound better than the reviews of others had warned. The guitar extraction feature was not perfected, but for the price it worked decent enough for many songs to be useful for practicing.

BUT.......After a few days an odd rattling sound started rolling off the end of each note played with my guitar. I would restart the software and it would clear up, but in 15 min or so it would come back. This was annoying enough, but after about a week of this, the guitar input completely stopped working. I started researching and troubleshooting and found out many people have had problems with this product. I re-installed the software many times and tried many other suggestions from Vox and others but the input never started working again.

Thank goodness Musician's Friend stands behind their sales and I have been sent a return label. I did really enjoy the product when it worked, so I'm hoping that mine was just a lemon and am returning it for another unit. If the next one works out, GREAT, but if I get another lemon I will have to give this product a big "0". Crossing my fingers...
If you get one that works, the value would be great now that they have been discounted so much.

Wow, ultra nice for the price. Sounds great

Here's the crazy part. I have a home studio with Pro Tools and all kinds of Plug-in virtual amps and this thing hangs with the best of them. I'm talking Pod Farm, Amplitube 3, Digidesign Eleven, Guitar Rig, (& lots more) I'm not kidding, this thing deals the sounds and to think of how much I paid for those plugs compared to this....

I also have two Fender tube Amps (Hot Rod Blues Jr.) and (Super Champ XD) and lots of cool botique pedals and lately I've been having more fun with this thing.

Not sure how long this price will last but I'd snap one up if it were me....actually I did, ha!
I remember when this came out several years ago and I thought, hmmm, looks like a toy with some cute modeling software, kinda like a low-end line6 product. Well now its late 2011 and I had read previously that some people had some driver issues so I looked on Vox site and noticed they have newer software and drivers for this bad boy and for the small dough MF has this for I thought I'd give it a try. One of the cooler things is you no longer need the baby "amp' interface to use this software using version 2.0. You can use your own interface should you wish to (Core audio for Mac or ASIO for PC) I would certainly keep the baby "amp" around though because it acts as a dongle to authorize the software when you run it for the first time. Actually I kinda like this tiny amp thing as it has stereo speakers and it actually has a solidness about it.
The tiny amp has a solid heavy (for its size) feel to it and it feels like it will last a long time if treated decent. I treat all my things very nicely myself so I know it will last for me.
Whether you just wanna jam or have a studio like me, this is another option for great sounds and inspiration. For the money you just can't beat it.

The drum sounds are fun and tweakable to jam with. You can also play along with real songs and even notch out parts you wanna replace.

works well

By drillin' dylan

from Colorado

Again 8 because of version 1 software. Be sure to upgrade it before you say yuck.
Just bought oneof these and they are great. Version 1 software which comes with it sucks. Upgrade to version 2.01....tried to auto upgrade twice.....it did not work, had to download it direct from the jamvox site, now it works great with no strange pops or other noises.
The effects and models are much better than comperably priced amps/multi effects pedals I've heard.
It got an 8 for the crummy version 1 software.
You can't hardly beat it for a compact amp system.

Fab!!

By Smeg4903

from Midwest

I have no regrets about buying the JamVox!
This little JamVox is wonderfull. I don't really use the GXT feature all that much. The amp models and presets are very easy to use. I love the fact you can use your own MP3 files and slow them down to play along with. The drum presets are with the price of the unit alone!

Max bang for the Buck

By AZguitarPlayer

from Phoenix, AZ

Bought mine through MF when it was on Stupid Deal of the Day for $69.Thanks MF for a great deal!!!A friend bought one of these a while ago and called to have me come over to check it out. I was limited for time that day but figured I'd check it out for about 15 minutes then leave and come back later when I had more time to play with it. 2 hours later, I looked at my watch and realized I stayed longer than I was supposed.This thing is fun!! Its perfect for learning new songs, configuring it for tones of your favorite artist is a breeze and accurate sounding, the software features work very well across the board and its more fun to play through than my amp. Its not loud but the volume it can achieve is respectable, its perfect for players that live in apartments.If you're serious about playing guitar and have a desire to learn new songs, get this thing. The coolest feature about it (in my opinion) is getting rid of the guitar piece on a song and playing that part with the band. Highly recommended!!!

Couldn't be better but i wish....

I love this new product and couldn't be happier, but when you first get it you must get the newest version, because there some disgusting clicking noises in the performance, but that's an easy fix. And another thing is that it DROPS OUT, in the middle of a song, i don't know why and it seems as though no one else knows either!!!!!I love it but there some flaws that I'm hoping VOX will work out. FULLY RECOMMEND.

Very nice!

By VoxUserinKY

from Louisville, KY

Excellent product! It was easy to set up and sounds very good, especially for the size of its speakers. Just don't expect it to sound like a $1000 amp. It also sounds good, relatively speaking, when using headphones. I experienced the popping sound described by other reviewers but it was easily solved by updating the software.
