Ultimate Guitar just published a list of the top 10 pedals they reviewed in 2021 and AmpliTube X-VIBE figures in the top 5.
Here's how they summarized IK's new modulation effects pedal:
The X-VIBE is really easy to wrap your head around and easily replaced 4 pedals on my pedalboard within days of arriving.
"I love modulation pedals, but I don't dip into the more modern modulation pedals that can do a lot more than the X-VIBE can. Instead, I want my Phase 90, Electric Mistress, and Boss Super Chorus sounds in a more convenient package.
"The X-VIBE does all that and more, as I programmed in those 3 pedals, multiple trem sounds, and a Leslie speaker sound.
The way I see it is that I replaced 4 pedals for $300!
"That is worthy of a very high spot on this list, especially when you consider that the algorithms here sound nearly identical to my beloved stompboxes."
