VOX''s original JamVOX has been newly reborn as the JamVOX III stand-alone plug-in software.

Frankfurt, Germany (March 21, 2012) -- VOX Amplification announces JamVox III. VOX's original JamVOX has been newly reborn as the JamVOX III stand-alone plug-in software. It brings together the best of VOX amp & effect modeling with plug-in compatibility, along with advanced Guitar XTracktion (GXTIII) technology that can isolate and remove tracks from existing songs.

With its evolved features, JamVOX III provides significantly more precision and operability. There's also an easier-to-use interface, and a movie recording function, making JamVOX III an ideal choice for playing guitar, learning songs by ear, practicing, or producing music.

The revolutionary Guitar XTracktion Technology III (GXT III) allows guitarists to remove (or extract and emphasize) a specific guitar part from an existing song, so they can perform along with their favorite band. Unlike the vocal cancelling technology of other products, GXT III uses the phase and frequency to spatially identify and isolate the instrument specified. Using the loop playback function, players can also listen to loops of the section of the song they're learning or practicing.

A total of 19 amp models provide the sound of vintage amps such as the VOX AC30, as well as more modern amp choices; 12 speaker models meticulously reproduce details such as the construction of the speaker and cabinet size. These highly-accurate amp models use VOX's Virtual Valve Reactor Technology to perfectly simulate everything that affects the sound-right down to the characteristics of the power amp circuitry-to deliver the same response as the original amp and effect models.

The effects section includes 18 standard pedal-type effects such as wah and compressor; 12 modulation-type effects such as chorus, flanger, and tremolo; 11 delay-type effects including models of analog circuitry such as tape echo and multi-head; 15 types of reverb, plus noise reduction, for a grand total of 57 premium effects.

Legendary VOX amp, cabinet, and effects modeling is now also available via plug-in for song production. These inimitable plug-ins faithfully reproduce a vast collection of vintage amps such as the VOX AC30. In addition to VST and AU plug-in formats, the latest 64-Bit DAWs are also supported natively.

With JamVOX-Online, users can simply press the search button for the song they want to play on the JamVOX III, and instantly obtain the optimal guitar and GXT settings for that song.

JamVox III will be available via download starting early April 2012. Musicians can take advantage of a special half-price introductory offer of $49.99 until May 31, 2012 (Price is regularly $99.99). Current users of the original JamVOX can update at no charge using the JamVOX software's auto update function.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
