Great tone, but improve switching
I love these UAFX amp pedals. They all have great tones that are relatively easy to dial in without option paralysis. My issue is the switching options. I have the Dream, Ruby, and Woodrow. My only switching option is to use the Live/Preset mode so I can turn one off to use another. But this severely limits the utility of using, say, the reverb on the Dream or the tremolo on the Ruby because I have to manually turn them on each time I use the pedal (or only use a preset that has that specific setting already saved). Would be nice to have, for example, a live/reverb or a live/tremolo option or even better, a way to have live (on/off) and reverb/tremolo. Other than that, all three amp pedals have been a joy.
Received my Dream 65 this morning… Thanks Andertons!
I’ve never played a tube amp, not likely to able to afford such a thing either.
I’ve never played an amp modeller/sim, etc… Until today!
For my set up and ability this pedal is awesome and I’m beyond happy that (after some major procrastinating) I decided to buy it.
It took me a while to get it dialled into my setup (steep learning curve in the last 24 hours) but holy crap it sounds ace!
Beyond happy :-)
two different dream pedals, same issues
ive had two different dream pedals both randomly have intermittent screaming type noise that makes the pedals unusable. also after 6 months or so, a distorted/fizzy noise just started appearing as well. tried factory reset and firmware updates on both pedals to no avail. up to 2 month turnaround time for UA to fix as well. not good.
It sounds so so good (I never played one of this amps but for sure sound nicer than amplitube). It doesn't clip the interface, I don't need to use a DI,.... it brakes to soon!, I like playing clean. I wish it had been modeled to a few more amps, a 65 twin reverb to get a better jazz tone?!, its nice to have many cabinets, another couple of amps would have been super, otherwise I am very happy. Is it UA ever going to make a distortion/OD pedal?
More headroom and better tone stack
I too agree with the other reviewer’s, and most of the people on the forums, that the amp has not enough headroom definitely not enough compared to a real deluxe 65. I also would welcome a way to adjust the scooping of the Tone stack, which is really hard to overcome, unless you use an EQ pedal in front or mid heavy booster, such as clone, the Dream 65 is too mid scooped. Otherwise excellent.
Great sound, limited use.
A nice piece of gear to have, with good sounds, and the level of quality and detail which you would expect from UA. The overdriven sounds are stunningly similar to the real amp. And while I am happy with the way this pedal sounds, I am surprised and disappointed by a severe lack of clean headroom, which is far more accentuated than on most Deluxe Reverbs I've played and heard. I hope there is the possibility of a software update that could adjust this. Also, it surprisingly does not play well with overdrive pedals in front. A D.I. output would have been nice. The app needs work.
Sounds Great! App needs work.
I love how this pedal sounds! The artist and factory presets are really wonderful for someone like me who wants to start playing right away and not get overwhelmed with changing settings. With the benefit of a few weeks experience, the manual settings are making more sense by tweaking the loaded presets.
Like others have mentioned, the bluetooth connectivity with the app is glitchy and can be frustrating. Also, it'd be great to be able to see where the dials and other settings are at for my favorite artist and factory presets -- even if it was available as a download and not part of the app. Hopefully UAFX can and will address these issues with updates.
Great sound, but no headphone out, no XLR, no BT audio, no separated outs, horrible app
First of all: this pedal sounds great. It plays great, feels great.
Blackface sounds are accurate, reverb is simply perfect and trem super usable as well. I have owned some digital tools (like e.g. the Kemper, sold it) but use mainly - or better: exclusively - analog and tube gear.
Besides other amps I have a Deluxe Reverb and a VibroVerb, both hand-wired. For recording purposes I mostly am too lazy to get my 121, 414, 57 etc. out but instead go directly into the Ox Box (into Apollo 8), which works just beautifully in most of the cases.
When the dream arrived, I was eager to see, if this would be good enough to become my "Deluxe Reverb into Ox-quicky-substitute". And well.... hell yeah! :-)
Used it for recording a couple of times since I got it and even played it live twice now. Great pedal, great Fender tones!
BUT..... and yes, this is a BIG but..... as ggod as it sounds, this 400 Euro thing lacks in other areas in quite a painful way. I personally find it absolutely idiotic...
... to not include a headphones out
... to not have XLR or symmetrical 1/4'' jacks
... to have BT but not BT audio
... to not let the user have one out with cab simulation and the other without (for going mono into FoH and mono into an amp's power section (e.g. on stage )
... to have such a horrible app, that took me over an hour and four (!) different devices (Android, iOS, Windows) to get the damn thing registered
What was UA thinking here? This little buiddy could the perfect practicing and recording tool, but it lacks the necessary connectivity and options.
Using the outs for driving your headphones works so la la, with low impedance phones volume is a joke and you'll need a Y-cable anyways. Man, there is plenty of free space on all sides.
No symmetrical outs is a bad joke too. Hum is a real problem, as you can read in many posts here. Level is a problem, you'll need an additional DI box live. How stupid is that? Why not include this?
Plus the pedal can do soooo many things, that UA lets you not use or configure. Yes, it is able to do different cab sims left and right - or just as easy cab sim left, no sim right - but you will not get access to that.
Nevertheless, after much consideration I will give this thing 4 stars, just because of the tonal glory of it.
In terms of connectivity it would be only 2 stars.
I can't believe my ears
It is impressive how good it really is! You can get great sounds connecting it directly to the interface but I also love it when mixed with other pedals as well as playing through my amp. Definitely another tool that inspires to play and make music
The sound and feel of this pedal is amazing. The app and everything else to do with it? Incredibly below UA standards.
Sound Great / Software :-(
First, the positive:
- the pedal sounds great, I play it as an amplless setup
- Apple App: always connection problems, few settings
- Cool would be a possibility to control the preset knob via external pedal, then you could ingregrate it into a looper / switcher
straight out the box, doesn't work.....disappointment!
Thank you to the UA team, this is a cool innovation for guitarist. I found the sound and build quality of the pedal to be impressive. Definitely exceeded my expectations as someone who has been playing for +25 years.
Sounds Ace but Bluetooth App Shocking
I am so very impressed with this pedal, Ive tried it out at a gig without an amp straight through the P.A and it sounded fat! Each note on my guitar was cutting through the mix great! Really impressed. However I am now wanting to change a few functions on the pedals that I can only do via the bluetooth app.... of which to great disappointed I've had much trouble getting connected via both my iPhone and I pad. My iPad worked the first time round as it just wasn't connecting to via my phone. However now I am trying to get connected for the second time and once again, I'm stuck with not being able to use the app. My bluetooth on both iPhone and iPad connect fine to the app. However the app just will not connect back. Its a real disappointment when your spending this kind of money and software is involved to change functions of the pedal but the software isn't up to standard.... Im left upset and angry
sounds good but not sit in the mix
Actually, I have no idea why the headroom of this pedal is so so small. If I tweaking it without the band is playing, it sounds good. With the band is playing? My guitar is gone. I do really really hard to find the sweet spot, especially the gain structure and the equalizers (bass and treble). Somehow, it doesn’t representing the “plain canvas” or “a pedal platform amp” that the real Deluxe Reverb could deliver; the clean tone is too thin and way too mid scoop! I don’t care about the connectivity or effects loop features that most of the people were complaining.
Could you guys do a firmware update regarding those issues that I have?
One more thing. The boost is sucks. For me, boost is very crucial for guitarist to have it when we’re on the lead part of the song. It’s just not enough to cut through the mix; as I stated before. It just adding some kind of artificial saturated frequencies.
70' music fan, who has found his Dream
I’m playing solo at home, and need something that can play well at low volume. I love the 70’s guitar tones, funk, blues, rock, soul etc. and have always been searching for a product that gives me a warm sounding tube like tone for clean and overdrive at low volume, which has led me to buy a modelling amp, and a number of multi effects too, but the cleans always sound too tinny to me, and the overdrives much too fizzy, with virtually no adjustment in between. So, when I saw the reviews on the UA Dream 65’, I thought I’d give it a try, and thankfully I did. I’ve never played the amp it is emulating but I know the warm tube tones I’m after, and with the dream I can get very close, what’s more there’s a large spectrum of adjustment possible between the clean and the overdrive sounds, and its real easy to dial in a tone. This is truly a major advancement in guitar technology, I’m really blown away by the sound quality, so much so that I probably play twice as much as I used to. Lastly, I've tried it with a wah pedal, auto wah, screamer, fuzz and vibe and they all sound perfect.
Thank you to all the engineers who made it happen, I’m so thankful!!! Anyway, gotta go she’s callin’, that’s my Strat…
Advertisement is accurate... "lose yourself in legit vintage tone". The feel is A+. Very expressive for solo playing. However, we found it still doesn't glue very well when playing rhythm or counter melodies in studio recordings... the emulation attracts a bit too much unwanted attention compared to real deal - a common problem with amp sims. Nevertheless, UA did a really good job, and this is indeed a dream for playing live.
Sound is great but
PLEASE UA make the Control Mobile App available via USB for the desktop App too. I hate Bluetooth and it can't be that much effort to add such a feature.
Otherwise I'm very happy with the pedal. It reacts great to all sorts of pedals in front.
Sounds like a dream
Definitely lives up to the kind of audio quality UA is known for. Controls are interactive, and the different speaker models breathe life into each different sound. Also, the spring reverb definitely drips.
