Product Description

Peavey's MuseBox takes advantage of virtual instrument and effects software for cutting-edge sounds and unprecedented flexibility. Portable, compact, and completely self-contained - just plug in, and play!

- Simple Sound-Finder based user interface lets you find that just right sound or effect quickly.

- Tweak and program instruments and effects by simply connecting a mouse, monitor and keyboard directly to the MuseBox. Or edit and program remotely by connecting the MuseBox to your computer and running the exclusive Muse Remote software.

- Two pro-grade mic/instrument inputs on the front panel allow you to connect your mic and guitar so you can handle any performance situation.

- MIDI jack and line inputs on the back let you compliment your existing keyboard sounds with exciting software-based instruments.

What is this? More than you can imagine.

The super portable, super flexible MuseBox Musical Instrument and Effects Box from Muse Research and Development uses virtual instruments and effects technology in a distinct way, so you can easily take them to your rehearsals, gigs, to the practice room, or to the studio. Using technology derived from its powerful big brother, the award-winning RECEPTOR Hardware Plug-in Player, this compact 2U half rack design is ultimately portable, incredibly versatile, and built for the road.

The key to MuseBox is its custom software environment that takes computer technology and turns it into a musical instrument that works in any musical situation for any kind of musician. Now you can harness the world's best sounding virtual instruments and most versatile, tone-laden effects and take them anywhere - and everywhere.

It's Anything You Want It To Be

MuseBox features incredibly flexible I/O, with front panel guitar and microphone inputs, MIDI, and USB. So you can play through it, sing through it, process your keyboards, play along to backing tracks, and of course, create lush keyboard sounds with your MIDI controller. Guitarists can use it to run their favorite amp modeling software, multi-effects libraries and more. Singers can enhance their vocals with reverb, compression, de-essing and pitch correction in real time. Keyboardists can run virtual pianos and delicious sounding virtual instruments with super-low latency and superb stability.

Sounds Great Right Out Of The Box

MuseBox comes pre-loaded. Simply turn it on, press the PLAY button, select the sound of your choice and off you go into the superior sounding world of virtual instruments and effects. It's got all the "meat and potatoes" keyboards to cut any gig. Guitarists will dig Peavey's ReValver HP Guitar Amp Modeler for killer sounds. And of course there is an ample supply of essential effects, including Reverbs and Chorus.

Find Sounds Fast

MuseBox's SoundFinder preset architecture lets you quickly sort through thousands of presets to find the sound you are looking for... and it automatically adds presets as you add additional virtual instruments and effects to the MuseBox.

Easy And Intuitive

You'll find MuseBox easy to use right from the get-go. The front panel allows quick and intuitive access to whatever you have loaded in your MuseBox, so you can call up sounds, tweak parameters, edit effects chains, whatever you need.

Customer Reviews
3 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Solid Performance"
Overall: Works pretty much as advertised. Lots of decent E.P. and B3 sounds. Acoustic pianos are better than most E.P.s but not as good as the best VSTs like Ivory or Galaxy. Still, by layering two piano sounds I was able to get something that's better than any live stage piano I've had to date. No glitches so far. The supplied software lets you define your own patches for instant recall on stage. It's a cinch to use. Biggest drawback is not being able to add your own VSTs. You have to buy the more expensive Receptor to do that. Hopefully Peavey/Musebox will provide some compatible versions of our favorites on flash card in future. I'd love to be able to get Galaxy Vintage-D into this thing and would pay extra to have a few of my favorite premium sounds like that.

"Peavey Musebox"
Overall: Musebox is a Linux core computer and solid state hard drive packaged with A/D converters, MIDI, USB, and some other interfaces. It runs software synthesizers and effects but does not provide any sequencer or song producing applications. The front panel interface gives you enough direct control for live use, and the VGA monitor input and USB keyboard/mouse jacks allow you to access the internal software environment. It can run two synths, one guitar, one vocal/mic, and two master effects all at the same time. Synths: strange mix of options, but with a little playing around it's actually quite good. MusePlayer is the primary sample playback app. You can't access the samples directly, but you can take factory patches and change filters & envelopes & LFO's. Very good monophonic portamento mode here, no clicking or popping over long pitch sweeps. This module has its own internal effects which are good. Grand Piano sample is huge, too long to load for the sound I get, so I use rock piano shorter sample. Organs are good, woodwinds not too bad, but overall orchestral instruments are mostly average. Museplayer has a nice pro sound overall,. U-HE Triple Cheese is freeware string-pluck-blown modeling synth, very good! It also has great mono-mode with portamento which is good because the Linn Alpha3-Free analog modeling synth is poly only. Cheese has some unusual sounds & is very programmable. Alpha3 is a programmable basic analog poly-synth with lots of modulation. Other synths are AAS Player, Amber, Alchemy ... all just demo versions with a few sounds each and no editing. Guitar effects based on Peavey apps. This stuff crashes now and then when trying to open editor. Allows choice of amps, stomp boxes, rack effects, etc. Not bad overall, but doesn't blow me away. Can do various distortion, compression, delay, chorus, flange, phase, etc. A few of the amp models have bad noise when I plug in my strat ... just like a real amp system with ground loop problems, ha ha. Cool thing is you can route a synth module into the Peavey effects ... great for lead sounds. Musebox has other effects for vocals, wacky filtering things, compressions, etc. The vocal effects include pitch harmonies, which is interesting and I need to experiment more with that. It's kind of overwhelming, but I like ability to run synth, guitar, and vocal at same time from one box. It's sort of like my Yamaha CS6r, which is the next closest thing short of the Muse Receptor. I wish it had more controls on the MIDI page: hold pedal on/off can't be set for MIDI zones, for example. It does what it says, and it is small to fit inside a carry bag. Perfect for amateur gigs, and very flexible in home studio. It has a card slot for new apps. I would love to see that OPX Oberheim softsynth available one of those cards, but it would have to be the full version with edit capability. Demo versions are useless. The other thing that worries me is how to do remote storage of my program data? I don't know if that is even possible, and I get nervous without some way to back up all the hours I put in. Overall I am happy. Because of Musebox I have a lot of old rack stuff I don't really need anymore.
