    "as a result of using a totally chip-less circut, it is possible to patch the VMP-4000E into itself to create some amazing and unique, valve sound textures".

    Hi Seb, can you explain this a bit more for the group?

    Yes Chris ,
    If you require even more colouration from the unit than that’s available from a single channel , you can simply stack the channels so that they can drive one after the other in series.This gives you complete control over factors such as harmonic overtones , valve distortion ….even to the point of valve saturation.

    Sometimes just stacking two channels and running cleanly can do wonders for things like bass guitar….it warms it up amazingly. :eek:
    Vocals also can sound kinda sweet beacause of the natural valve compression.

    Stacking two or more channels also entails extra gain , so it is very handy for low output ribbon mics.

    Stacking one or more channels is very easy with the vmp.
    Simply take the unbalanced out of one channel and patch it into the next.
    …you could use a balanced lead as well. :w:

    Sebatron now look what you've done, I'm gonna have to "MAKE" Kurt try this on the next bass track I cut. :D See I am one of those kinds of people that will do this just to see what it sounds like! :roll:
