GUITAR SHOWCASE 2022: Quad Cortex is the most powerful floorboard amp modeller on the planet. With a total of 6 cores (4x SHARC+ and 2x ARM Cortex-A5 running at 500MHz each), this ludicrous amount of processing capacity provides limitless sound design possibilities.
Capture, share and download your favorite rigs’ sounds. Equipped with our unique biomimetic AI technology, Quad Cortex can learn and replicate the sonic characteristics of any physical amplifier, overdrive, and cabinet with unprecedented accuracy.
Unlike any other, our sophisticated neural network algorithm perceives sound akin to human perception, making it the most natural-sounding capture solution on the planet.
An ever-expanding collection of guitar and bass algorithms
We have added over 40 new devices and countless features since launching Quad Cortex through free software updates that can be downloaded via WiFi.
With over 1000 perfectly captured impulse responses, Quad Cortex ships with one of the most extensive IR collections on the planet – and it is the only of its kind equipped with virtual microphones that can be positioned around the speaker like in a real studio. Third-party IRs are extremely easy to load.
A powerful parametric EQ offers absolute control at your fingertips. Taking full advantage of the 7” multi-touch display, our parametric EQ is intuitive and fun to use.
With its massive 7” touch display, Quad Cortex is unbelievably easy to use. Effortlessly create even the most complex signal paths.
Drag-and-drop blocks to change the order or routing in seconds and you can visualise and control the settings of inputs and outputs with one swipe.
Thousands of Presets and Captures have been uploaded to Cortex Cloud by artists, engineers, and other users, and they can all be downloaded for free.
Linking your Neural DSP account to your Quad Cortex allows you to create backups, share content, and download items from other users. It also unlocks the Impulse Response Library, where you can transfer IRs to your Quad Cortex and manage the IRs stored on your account.
