We decided to remove the editor from the website, as it was only a Beta version and had a few issues, such as when you actually clicked on some fields the data would change. This is frustrating.
Once again the VSX-26 and 48 products are what they are, and that is a very good value for their price and position in the market place. They do have features and benefits that the competive products do NOT have, such a Bessel filter functions, and many other options. Just look at the other filter types that are in it besides the PEQ's: Notch, Two, Two! - All Pass Filters, Horn EQ, LPF_ (-6 dB/Octave Low Pass Filter), LPF_2 (-12 dB/Oct), HPF_6, HPF_12, Low Shelf, High Shelf, and Bandpass.
The factory presets that are available give the user tremendous value added for the investment they have made in Peavey equipment.
For those who have a deeper level of experience and understanding, and may possess a dual channel FFT measurement system, you can further tighten up the performance of your system. With the capability of the VSX26/48 DSP and via of knowledgable interpretation of measurements, you can actually tweak systems beyond the factory presets, and compensate for differences in manufacturing tolerances. Manufacturing tolerances are tighter than +/- 3dB, but I'm talking about +/- 1 dB for a given acoustical space.
We have plenty of satisfied customers using the VSX-26 and VSX-48. Yes, on occasion we have seen some in the service center. What made by man doesn't have failures?
Designers and installers may want the ability to interface a PC, but many others simply do not have the skills and experience and could end up in deep water. Remember the first prime directive is; "to do no harm." Besides once a given system has been calibrated under "free field" conditions, i.e. outdoors, in the presence of a single boundry (the ground plane), those then stored presets can then be very good and useful in most indoor environments. Even then with the VSX-26 you can use the Autographing function to tweak it futher to a given acoustical space. Again if you know what your are doing.
Now for those that think that the current VSX-26/48 does not offer enough whistles and bells, we also offer the Digitool MX. For those that may be interested in a DSP that can be controlled directly via of a PC, go here:http://aa.peavey.com/downloads/software/
Then download: Release - 07/01/2004 Download Flash and Utility program version 3.42b (2.17 Mb)
Description: Self Installing version 3.42b flash and utility program
This is the GUI for the Digitool, and I can tell you it is very powerful. It is also possible to operate or control the Digitool MX wirelessly via Bluetooth devices.
