MayFly Introduces the VoxBox Microphone Effects Loop
Designed with recording artist Akeem Oh, the VoxBox features an XLR input with an integral studio quality microphone preamp.
"The VoxBox was conceived around a simple idea: Why can’t vocalists and horn players enjoy the same pallet of effects that guitarists have? Seems unfair. So I designed a device that allows you to use effects with a microphone and control them live.
Want delay on your vocals, but only for one phrase? The VoxBox can do it. Want to add chorus to your trumpet for the climax of your solo? The VoxBox is your tool. Want to add subtle (or maybe not so subtle) reverb to that delicate sax part? You need a VoxBox." - MayFly
Designed with recording artist Akeem Oh, the VoxBox features an XLR input with an integral studio quality microphone preamp. The signal is buffered and sent to a 1⁄4” effects send. From there you can plug in ANY effect you want. The output of the effect plugs back into the VoxBox’s effects return. There is a knob to control the preamp gain (up to 60db), and another to control the blend between the wet and dry signals. Finally, the signal goes out a balanced XLR jack (and an unbalanced 1⁄4” jack) to your mixer or DAW.
The Engage Loop switch silently turns the loop on/off. But the Momentary Swap switch will temporarily engage/disengage the loop only when you have the switch pressed down. Designed to accentuate just one phrase then get back to your regular performance.
There’s also an Akeem Oh signature model. Featuring custom graphics by artist Pearly Water, the signature model is limited to only ten pedals. Available exclusively at Cicada Sound, Ottawa.
