With double the processing power, models and effects of competitive modeling amplifiers, the VYPYR Series dramatically redefines the power and scope of modern guitar amplification. VYPYR amplifiers are based on a combination of powerful 32-bit, floating-point SHARC processors and patented TransTube analog circuitry.
Featuring 24 amp channel models--both the clean and distorted channels of 12 popular amps for the first time anywhere--plus 11 editable preamp "stomp box" effects and 11 editable post-amp "rack" effects with dual-parameter control. Players can use up to five effects simultaneously. When used with the optional Peavey Sanpera(tm) II foot controller, the possibilities further expand from 12 in-amp presets to 400 programmable presets, with an on-board looper and more.
The VYPYR also acts as its own computer audio interface, with a built-in studio-quality USB 2.0 output on most models that is recognized by computers as an audio device. The entire six-model VYPYR Series features the easy-to-use Peavey WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface.
It's an awesome modeling/multi-effects amp and has been my main amp for 5+ years. I prefer it over similar style amps that I've played. I credit (blame lol) this amp for getting me into home recording, it has a usb port so you can record without an interface. The Sanpera pedals you can buy for it are pretty cool but I found them a bit, however I didn't put much effort into learning it and I'm not great with making presets and such. I would definitely recommend this amp for a beginner/intermediate player who isn't sure what they want in an amp yet and can't afford a bunch of pedals. It models, I think, 12 amps(2 channels each), 11 stompboxes, and 11 rack effects. All of these reasonable edited, I don't remember how many factory presets there are but a few I liked and you can make a few of your own, 400 if you get the Sanpera 2. Overall a great amp and I picked it up used for under $100 and have only had minor glitches when it took a couple tries for it to boot up but it hasn't glitched while playing.
