Expand the tone of your bass with the power of the gods.
As technology progresses, so does what devices will be able to do to empower musicians’ creativity, and Darkglass’ main goal is exactly that: To push the boundaries of what musicians are able to achieve.
The Darkglass limited-edition Alpha·Omega Ultra is the most versatile bass preamplifier the company has 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 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 matter 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.
