Hot: The Universal Audio OX - Amp Top Box

Posted on July 13, 2017 by Matt Park There have been 2 comment(s)

As part of the Summer NAMM event Universal Audio announced a whole new product, the OX Amp Top Box, which sits somewhere between an attenuator and an interface, let's take a look...

The new UA OX Amp Top Box is a premium reactive load box, allowing guitarists to play and record their tube amp in its ideal sweet spots — from the edge-of-breakup to fully cranked — at any volume level, and with instant album-quality mic, room, and speaker cabinet emulations at the turn of a knob. The OX has five finely-tuned guitar amp attenuation levels — from off, to whisper quiet, to full band volume as well as selectable 4, 8, and 16-Ohm modes.

Connectivity wise, the Universal Audio OX has a front-panel headphone out for silent practice with cranked tones, balanced TRS line outs, and S/PDIF digital outputs for stereo recording. The user can also pair with UA OX mobile or desktop app over Wi-Fi for editing and saving presets.

"OX is like no other box on the market,” says Universal Audio CEO and Founder, Bill Putnam, Jr. “It removes the barrier of getting perfect tone from tube guitar amps, at any volume. At its core is the world’s finest speaker attenuator and reactive load. But then we took it several steps further with UA’s own ‘secret sauce’ — namely Rig presets with stunning mic and studio emulations; and Dynamic Speaker Modeling, which emulates speaker breakup and cone cry like no other box in history."

Featuring Universal Audio’s breakthrough Dynamic Speaker Modeling, OX emulates speaker breakup and cone cry like no other box on the market. It’s the world’s finest boutique speaker attenuator and guitar amp recording solution — overbuilt for years of home and studio use.

Universal Audio are not giving much away at this early stage in terms of release date or pricing details, all that we know is it will be arriving in the late part of the year. We are really looking forward to getting this in stock and can't wait to have a play with it!
