Capture of Steve Vai's signature Carvin Legacy VL100. This is the original Legacy amp, not to be mistaken by the second and third generation Legacy amps. The Carvin Legacy VL100 is as pure as it gets and it's no coincidence it is called the Master of Lead! The Legacy’s clean channel sounds confident and loud, yet with enough dynamic sensitivity to cover everything from twangy country to warm jazz while the lead channel is darker than its clean-toned buddy. 

At lower gain settings, vintage tones are within reach while gradually nudging the gain up adds further harmonic complexity, until you increase it enough when the ‘Vai hidden feature’ kicks in, signalling a hefty jump in gain after which the sound gets more and more saturated. Back up at full gain, the Legacy is extremely responsive – it’s one of those amps that gives back whatever you put in, and seems to emphasize whatever you do, whether it’s good or bad, so you’d better have your chops together if you want to go up against it!

This preset can be used either with a Power Amp (or the FX Loop of an Amp) and a Cabinet or straight to an Audio Interface, PA Speakers or FRFR. If you intend to use a Power Amp and Cabinet, please turn OFF the pedal's CAB SIM. Includes both STUDIO and LIVE  NVA Matching Cabinet Impulse Responses. 

ALL INCLUDED CAPTURES ARE DI CAPTURES, meaning that you can either use them with your ToneX pedal and a power amp/cabinet or select any Stock Cab/IR of your choice when connected to FRFR/PA Speakers or Audio Interface (using either the ToneX pedal or the ToneX Plugin). Comes with a Carvin Legacy C412 4x12 IR and a Carvin V412 4x12 IR!
