'axepalace' on insta has a pic of the VHX, but that's about the only one I can find so far.
Curious to see it in action, hopeful videos will come soon.

Thanks Leo,
When the VHX is available from Thomann or can it be ordered directly from Diezel? Price is really nice, lower than I expected.

Hi Leo, is it a intelligent Pitch Shifter respectively a Harmonizer? How many voices can be added? Thanks Markus

Currently it's a polyphonic pitch shifter with a single voice, however we are collecting user feedback for future firmware updates.

Peter or anyone....any video coverage or demo's from this years NAMM?? None are showing up so far when searching except 1-2 poor quality videos.

But this I just found, but I want to see some demo's showing the amps, features and all the nobs/controls of the new VHX etc

Stopped by and tried the VHX, really interesting take on a hybrid amp though personally I like having discreet and tangible effects/switches rather than GUI controls

You could have a midi pedalboard and assign a MIDI CC to a pushbutton to toggle one effect as well :LOL: :LOL:

Just joking ;), I understand what you mean, but there are so many advantages to have on board quality effects, like no 4CM, no noise, no multiple A/D conversion, no ground loop...

Also VHX do have "infinite" channels and cabless operation, integrated effects are a plus!

What do each of the colored gain structures coincide with, amp wise?

I'm not a spoiler guy :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:
That's something we will let the user to discover, but I already heard someone getting in love with the blue channel on half shape and classic voice..

That kinda sucks. The whole reason to get this amp would be to have a few of the best Diezel tones in one box.
