Darkglass Alpha Omega Ultra
The Alpha·Omega Ultra is the most versatile bass preamplifier we’ve designed: with its two distinct distortion circuits (Alpha and Omega), extremely high dynamic range, six-band active graphic EQ, dedicated headphone output and balanced direct output with switchable digital impulse-response cabinet emulation make for an incredibly complete tool for the modern bass player.
A cabinet’s frequency response is a huge part of modern music production, as raw, distorted Direct signals often require it for achieving big, natural tones out of instruments. Impulse Response cabinet emulation has become extremely popular in modern production to uncompromisingly replicate the benefits of real speakers (sonic-size and presence of the full-rig) without any of the drawbacks: having an acoustically treated room (or very, very unhappy neighbors), carrying bulky cabinets and setting up expensive microphones.
And as more and more musicians go direct, the need and benefits of incorporating studio-grade cabinet emulation into our top-of-the-line creations were evident. Now, you can have an uncompromising, ready-to-mix sound with your Alpha·Omega Ultra everywhere you go.
With the Darkglass Alpha·Omega already a successful release in 2017, the Ultra version is meant to be exponentially more versatile with these groundbreaking features. The Alpha·Omega Ultra’s Virtual Cabinet functionality allows you to get a consistent studio-grade setup by incorporating an incredibly accurate representation of your favorite cabinet’s character. And since they exist in the digital domain, they can be changed in a latter of seconds via a USB port with the Darkglass Suite -available for both PC and Mac- a free, easy to use platform for experimenting with your favorite cabinet configurations. This feature is fully switchable on the Direct Output and always-on for the headphone output, which gives you the chance to practice silently with an indescribably realistic, full-rig sound.
Darkglass Suite is a free software that allows you to load impulse response cabinet simulations and control various settings on your Alpha·Omega Ultra and B7K Ultra v2 pedals via USB. It comes with a set of impulses made by selected Darkglass artists, but also allows you to load your own impulses.
