Universal Audio OX Amp Top Box     

Every now and then, we get something new here that deserves a special shout out—like any time a product gets unanimous thumbs-up at the store. And the OX Amp Top Box is, in fact, such a beast.

On the surface, the OX is an attenuator—probably the best one we’ve ever heard. Running off your tube amp’s speaker out jack, its Speaker Volume control lets you set your amp for maximum tonal response, and then tailor the volume to the room. Gig level, practice level, bedroom level or no speaker output, you get the same tone you expect to hear from your amp. Because it’s a reactive load circuit, it reacts just like your speaker, with the same breakup and drive. It feels and sounds right.

That’s just the beginning. Using the front panel controls (or dive even deeper with OX’s flawless WiFi app), enhance your sound by choosing from a series of cabinet samples with drop-dead accurately modeled tones—from single 10”- and 12”-inch speakers up to 4x12” cabs. Now choose from the OX’s broad array of virtual mics (dynamic, condenser and ribbon) and position up to three for the best on/off axis sound, including a room mic for killer ambience—and we can’t stress how good it sounds to add some room into your overall sound.

Pro effects?  Universal Audio knows a thing or two about studio gear, and you get record-ready EQs, compression (with their virtual 1176), and world-class reverbs and delays. And of course, it’s all save-able and tweakable.  

Run it into the PA or to the mixing console. Whether you’re recording, practicing or using it for live performance, the OX delivers your sound, the way you hear it, straight to your DAW, studio engineer or front-of-house (the back panel has all the the necessary connections)—without setting up mics and dealing with leakage. Or as one reviewer put it:

“The direct signal sounds exactly like your amp, only better. That is, unless you have a large collection of premium mics, a hoard of classic cabinets, a great room to track them in, and extraordinary expertise at miking, blending, and processing multiple signals.” (Joe Gore, Premier Guitar)

The OX might not alter the way all guitars are recorded and mic’ed for live shows, but we know it will be a game changer for anyone who tries it. It’s that strong.
