Video walkthrough of Cyber-Rain Professional XCI System

Fender CyberTwin SE Combo 130w Amplifier and Variax 600 A demo of a few sounds from the Fender Cyber twin SE Combo The Amp is based on the Fender Twin but comes with some amazing modern features. These include Motorised Faders! The point of all these being to digitally control analogue circuitry and store them patches or presets. Think of any Fender Amp over the last 50 years and it is modelled (Analogue not Digital) and stored in the Amp Collection. The Other two Sections are Fenders Presets which are permanent and the Players Section which contains User changeable Patches The amp uses Two Pre-tubes, Analogue circuitry and a large Digital Effects section with Distortion, Overdrive, Delays, reverbs, phasers, Chorus, Wahs and less obvious stuff such as Backwards Delay/Reverb and the awful sounding Alienator!. Any Effects section parameter can be controlled by the bypass switch or much more usefully, an expression pedal (use any basic volume pedal, the optional fender floorboard or any programable midi foot controller). Great uses for this are Backwards Reverb, Delay mix, Volume boost, Gain and the obvious Wah….. Two Get the Full two speaker stereo Effect recorded properly i recorded through two widely located Condenser Microphones (Rode M3 and an RB5 large diaphragm). I also used the SPIDIF output and mixed it with the Recording, my thinking being a sort of DI output to blend with the Live recording. The Guitar I used was a line 6 Variax 600 which is an excellent new toy

    Good demo. Lots of variations, not just chunka chunka. Not that I’m a studio guy who has to play every style, but let’s say, different styles? clear the audio pallet. Thanks!

    Actually, I have heard better demos of this amp, and it can sound fantastic. But I see? your point.

  3. Richard Neil February 27, 2013 at 9:53 am

  8. rockanthems February 27, 2013 at 12:56 pm

    Great job of recording Thanks for? the Post!!!

  9. rockanthems February 27, 2013 at 1:27 pm

    Way way better option than those multi-effect cheap pedals.This? amp is real clean and real PRO for recording.Doesn’t get any better than this amp for variety of choices

  10. rockanthems February 27, 2013 at 1:38 pm

    I have one ,too .There are Hum redux and noise gate on it.Usually no hum at all.I bought one used and it hummed bad,but I pulled off the knobs and all the nuts behind them were loose .That solved the problem.?

  11. pablocruzatcruzat February 27, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    Too? much artificial sounds,,,I think the amplifier is good, but the guitar,,,

  12. craigstutzman February 27, 2013 at 2:07 pm

    Did you ever get a lot of hum when you weren’t playing, but just chilling with the guitar plugged in?? I have one and it hums like crazy on any overdrive.

  13. nicknackski February 27, 2013 at 2:35 pm

    errr Thanks? Ha,? was just messing around i’ve never even played that riff before just made it up as i went along. (badly obviously)

  14. nicknackski February 27, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    @homersimps There’s a selection of Presets for stacks Modern, Vintage, etc. But you can program the whole signal chain yourself to find that sound you’re looking for. I’m guessing the ‘vintage’ is a Marshall JCM800.

    The amp suits Combos best (as it is one!) at decent volumes, however, it pulls? of stacks very well when computer recording.

  15. nicknackski February 27, 2013 at 3:23 pm

    Very sorry buddy the amp? is sold 🙂

  16. nicknackski February 27, 2013 at 4:04 pm

    Hi, I miked up with two Shure SM57’s to the outside of each speaker. i also recorded the SPDIF Digital signal. then i mixed them together. hence capturing a dry signal and the speaker cabinet. If you haven’t got anywhere to record at volume you could just record the SPDIF digital out and use a decent cab? plugin in such as audioease cabinet.
    I haven’t tried another cab so i cannot comment on any other setup 🙂

    Hi, Montiac22 Its a Variax guitar nothing but fender presets. However, you can change the model of guitar on the variax for example jazz guitar to Tele. what settings i used are listed in? the example titles.

  18. homersimps1 February 27, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    Does it say what amp the Vintage Stack is emulating?? Nice demo by the way.

  19. nassax1 February 27, 2013 at 5:14 pm

    Hallo? !I’m interesting about the Amp!How much is the price?

  20. cybertubefactor February 27, 2013 at 5:40 pm

    Hey nicknackski, thank you for taking the time to put together the video. Nicely done on the recording – I wondered how you captured the stereo field so well. Anyways I have a Cyber Twin SE myself. I am looking at building a second cab with a 1 X 12 to spread out the sound a bit for concerts. I have not? tried it yet. Have you tried the outputs into other cabinets to see how it sounds? My hunch is if it sounds as good as it does with a combo setup it would sound outrageous w/ a stereo cab set!

  21. cyyr1 February 27, 2013 at 5:50 pm

    Very Nice demo.?

  22. orbitration February 27, 2013 at 6:01 pm

    good review…? less yak, more demos, …they should all be like this

  23. SCOPOtuaMADRE February 27, 2013 at 6:50 pm

    day tripper? really bad!

  24. nicknackski February 27, 2013 at 7:03 pm

    That a bargain.? i’ve just sold mine for £625 without foot controller. Buy it. they’re excellent

  25. bigblockelectra February 27, 2013 at 7:54 pm


    how much are these worth? i have a chance to buy one for $575 with the cyber midi? foot controller…is that worth it?
