UNIVERSAL AUDIO OX AMP TOP BOX

Universal Audio’s OX promises to be the answer to all of your attenuation, cabinet emulation and recording needs. Will you ever need to mic up your amplifier again? Huw Price finds out…

The roots of Universal Audio stretch back to the 1950s and the company is unusual in being equally respected for both its heritage analogue gear and cutting edge digital technology. Even analogue enthusiasts – this writer included – have found themselves blown away by Universal Audio’s digital models of classic studio equipment.

With the OX, Universal audio has used its expertise in both fields to create a reactive attenuator combined with highly sophisticated speaker, cabinet, microphone and classic effect simulations. It’s a substantial but stylish unit housed in a metal case with a classy front edge of solid maple. There’s an amp-style jewel light and the five control knobs are colour coded to correspond with the digital and analogue functions.
