You can connect both speaker outputs to an external stereo
speaker arrangement, e.g. our BG412S. In this configuration the
V-AMPIRE also delivers 2 x 60 W into 8 Ω per side (fig. 3.3).

Alternatively, just one external 8 Ω speaker may be connected
to the right or left speaker output. This also represents a stereo
configuration, because just the corresponding internal speaker
is muted, the other one is still active (fig. 3.4).

3.3 Rehearsal or recording at home
(LX1200H und LX210)
When using headphones, the V-AMPIRE will switch into studio
mode 1 (S1). This mode is particularly suitable for rehearsals or
when recording/monitoring. You could also use live mode 1 (L1)
which applies an additional 3-band EQ.
+ When connecting headphones, the amp signal is
automatically muted. Thus, if you unplug the
headphones we strongly recommend to turn the
MASTER control to the very left. The XLR output is
independent of the MASTER control setting. This
allows to tap into a line signal for recording
purposes, even when MASTER control is set to
Using studio mode 2 (S2) at home can be a good idea when it
comes to recording an amp sound without effects (dry) but
monitoring it with effects (wet). Working this way, you are
able to choose the effects you want later during mixdown. In
this case you would route the left output to the soundcard of
your computer and monitor the right output via your mixing console.

One advantage of rehearsing at home is that there is often a
computer available which allows you to design, edit, send, receive
and archive new presets comfortably and effectively. Download

You can create your own presets even with minimum system
requirements (Windows PC with MIDI interface or gameport MIDI
adapter). On the V-AMP homepage you also find an online preset
database (ULI, user library interface) with plenty of presets created
by other V-AMP users and famous artists. Here, you can upload
your own favorite presets and make them accessible for other
