Re: Teaser review of the Carvin Steve vai Legacy VLD1 preamp

I'm really interested in one of these for home use as unfortunately I just don't have space for the Legacy 3 (the head maybe but not a speaker cabinet).

The direct out and headphone options are nice but I'm not sure it would work with my Vox amps via the effects returns (AC30 with Greenbacks, AC30 with Blues or AD120VT) - all the demos I've seen are either with Marshalls or Carvin etc. which are quite different amps at least on their own.

$500 for a preamp.... why wouldn't I just buy the head?

Re: Teaser review of the Carvin Steve vai Legacy VLD1 preamp

The teaser Vai shot for this had a LOT of high frequency buzz, even more so than his usual sound of late - does this have some sort of baked-in speaker emulation for direct recording? If so, I was pretty underwhelmed, but then again I don't see myself wanting a Vai-in-a-box unit anyway.

Hi Drew,
I just posted the second Carvin VLD1 video going direct into the Daw via The cab out.

Re: Teaser review of the Carvin Steve vai Legacy VLD1 preamp

I think that is the first direct with nothing added demo I've seen.

It does sounds good there.

I actually preferred the direct sound via Youtube as the demo via the mic'd speakers had more of the room ambience which took some of the clarity.

I bet it would be the opposite when actually in the room though...

Does it sound as buzzy as Vai's demo?
