SNAMM08: Peavey Aim To Set The Bar For Modeling Amplification
VYPYR Tube 120

Peaveyhas introduced its new VYPYR Series modeling guitar amplifiers which they tell us are the most technologically advanced and affordable guitar modeling amplifiers available.
With double the processing power, models and effects of competitive modeling amplifiers, Peavey say that the VYPYR Series dramatically redefines the power and scope of modern guitar amplification. VYPYR amplifiers are based on powerful 32-bit, floating-point SHARC processors that enable highly detailed, accurate modeling as well as vastly enhanced flexibility and features than ever before available in guitar amplification.
Featuring 24 amp channel models—both the clean and distorted channels of 12 popular amps for the first time anywhere—plus 11 editable preamp “stomp box� effects and 11 editable post-amp “rack� effects with dual-parameter control. Players can use up to five effects simultaneously.
When used with the optional Peavey Sanperaâ„¢ foot controller, the possibilities further expand from 12 in-amp presets to 400 programmable presets, with an on-board looper and more. The VYPYR also acts as its own computer audio interface, with a built-in studio-quality USB 2.0 output on most models that is recognized by computers as an audio device. The entire sixmodel VYPYR Series features the easy-to-use Peavey WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface.
