VOX ADIO AIR BS overview

  • 1Description

The VOX Adio Air BS is a portable Bluetooth-enabled stereo bass amplifier designed to provide a variety of amp models and effects, full-range sound reproduction, and expanded capabilities via software integration for bassists practicing, collaborating, and gigging, whether at home, on the road, or on stage. Play your bass along with music from external devices in stereo with 50W of power pushing two 3” speakers. Record your performances via USB or turn the Adio Air BS into a re-amp unit.

The Adio Air BS utilizes VOX’s proprietary VET (Virtual Elements Technology) to model the components and circuits of the original reference amplifiers. 11 amp models are immediately accessible, with up to 17 types of amp models available via the bundled Tone Room software. Use three effects such as reverb, delay, and noise reduction simultaneously. Eight on-board effect types are provided and use of Tone Room opens up 11 more for a total of 19 types of effects. The built-in tuner features top-panel LEDs for easy-to-see pitch indication. Use the amp’s Bluetooth capabilities to allow music streaming from a portable device such as a smartphone or tablet. Connect non-Bluetooth components via the stereo aux input jack. Tweak parameters using the Tone Room software or an external controller via MIDI over Bluetooth.

The Adio Air BS boasts a strong, lightweight, slanted cabinet with separate inner boxes for the left and right speakers. This design, combined with the bass-enhancing reflex port, produces a wide and full-range sound. The amp can be operated for up to eight hours via batteries or powered by the included 19 VDC power adapter.

Lightweight and Powerful
The amp is easily transported due to its light weight of less than 6.4 lb and built-in recessed handle. 50W RMS is pumped through two 3" speakers for stereo sound. The Wide function utilizes KORG's "Acoustage" virtual surround technology to produce an extra-wide stereo soundfield.
Separated Cabinet
To prevent unwanted cabinet resonance, the inner box that secures the speakers is completely separated from the rear cabinet. Additionally, the inner box separates the left and right into independent spaces to produce stereo playback with a refined sense of spatiality. Rigidity is enhanced by a chassis design that minimizes parallel surfaces, suppressing unwanted vibration that would adversely affect the quality of the sound.
Slanted Design
The unique slanted design of the Adio allows you to position it with the speakers pointing diagonally upward so that the output reaches your ears directly, even at short distances. This means that you can enjoy always performing or listening in the sweet spot. The chassis is designed to minimize parallel surfaces, delivering a smooth sound that suppresses internal resonances.
Bass Reflex
The bass reflex section uses a flair component that creates a smooth widening at the entry and exit of the cabinet's port. This minimizes unwanted noise and enhances the bass reflex efficiency to further boost the low-frequency playback.
Proprietary VET Modeling Technology
The Adio uses VET (Virtual Elements Technology) to meticulously model amp components and circuit designs. Without relying on the ears of individual engineers, and without being influenced by the condition of a specific amp unit, VET perfectly reproduces the characteristics of the original amp. Additionally, it's equipped with high-performance DSP to ensure high sound quality.
Multiple Amp Models
The 11 amp models include not only classic amps, but also slap, rock, and modern. By using the bundled Tone Room software, you can choose from a total of 17 types of amp models. From a bass synthesizer to guitar amp models that you can enjoy when playing guitars, this single unit lets you enjoy a variety of amp sounds.
Multiple Effects
A full complement of effects is also provided: four types of effects such as compressor and auto-wah (FX1), and four ambience-type effects such as delay and reverb (FX2). You can simultaneously use a total of three effects including noise reduction. As with the amp models, using the Tone Room software expands the capabilities, letting you choose from a total of 19 types of effects: 11 for FX1 and 8 for FX2.
Tone Room Software
Tone Room editor/librarian software is provided, which lets you choose from an even richer selection of amp models and effects, and also lets you take advantage of the Adio's full potential by customizing detailed parameters and audio EQ settings. Up to eight customized amps and effects can be saved in the Adio. Tone Room runs on multiple platforms: Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. The Adio Air additionally supports Bluetooth MIDI, so you can control parameters wirelessly, allowing you to design your sound using your favorite MIDI device.
Play Along with Music
Connect the Adio Air to your computer or smartphone via Bluetooth, and use it to play your favorite music from either device. Whether for personal enjoyment in your living room or bedroom, for playing background music in a store, or for outdoor use, you can enjoy the ultimate listening experience in a variety of situations that take advantage of this unit's high output power, battery operation, and compact size. Connect non-Bluetooth devices via the aux input jack. Use the built-in speakers or plug in your headphones to the top-panel headphone jack.
Software Compatibility
Since the Adio is equipped with a USB port, you can connect it to your computer or tablet and use Tone Room software, or use the Adio as a USB audio interface to record and play back your performance. The Tone Room software lets you switch between three types of routing: mono recording, stereo recording, or re-amp. The bundled JamVOX III software lets you cancel or extract/emphasize a specific part from an existing song, play a loop from a song that you're learning or practicing, and even change the song's tempo.
Additional Goodies
There are four preset EQ settings with more detailed adjustments available via the Tone Room software. User-variable noise reduction keeps the hiss commonly incurred by high-gain sounds to a minimum. The integrated tuner features top-panel LEDs for pitch indication and supports dropped tunings.
