The Vox Starstream Type-1 is an innovative new electric guitar which features a unique body design and impressive on board AREOS-D System which can be used to emulate acoustic guitars synths and even sitars. Featuring a 22 fret Rosewoof fingerboard the Starstream provides a natural guitar playability but can be used to act as a range of instruments with effects via the powerful on board digital sound processor. The Vox Starstream Type-1 is the ultimate guitar for experimental players or guitarists who require an array of tones at the flick of a switch.
Innovative Mango Wood Body Designed to provide maximum comfort and optimized playability the Starstream Type-1 breaks the mould of traditional guitar design to offer a lightweight and stylish body. Featuring an impressive Mango wood centre section the Starstream Type-1 offers a resonant sound with smooth and rich sustain to provide a traditional style guitar tone. Furthermore the Mango wood body is paired with a bolt-on Maple neck to deliver an quick and dynamic playability. AREOS-D Control Module Many hours of testing revising and reconfiguring the placement and purpose of all controls on the Control Module ensure that you will have the clearest easiest and most flexible functions at your command. There are no confusing complicated submenus – everything you need to have a seamless (and most importantly musically creative) experience with the Starstream Type-1 has been developed to be convenient for every player. Guitar Models and Overdrive Not only does the Vox Starstream Type-1 realistically emulate both electric and acoustic guitars it also features digital overdrive which can be added and modified within the control module for on the fly adjustments. Including 5 electric guitar models and 6 acoustic models the Vox Starstream is extremely versatile and is the perfect choice for players who require an array of tones and instant switching capabilities. Synth Modelling Research during the development of the Starstream Type-1 showed that players nearly unanimously requested the instrument include classic synth models that track and provide user control over sound-shaping parameters during performance. Most attempts to get pitch-to-MIDI synth patches for guitar to track cleanly have been disappointing. Using highly developed DSP logic and fine tuning information from the string resulted in synth sounds that can be played more comfortably than on most guitar synths with less fear of glitches or missed notes.
