Try to imagine the following: Two Channel amp, single input w/ pad switch All Solid State Two Class-D / SMPS 600w Power amps, bridgeable to 1200w mono @ 4ohms Channels switchable and able to be JOINED in Parallel. (True Bi-Amp Capability Each channel has dedicated Gain & Volume controls, FX loops and EQ. (Ch. 1 FX loop can be assigned to BOTH channels) Channels are assignable to one side or both sides of the power amp section Vactrol Compressor at the front of the circuit w/ adjustable Level. Channel 1: Channel Select*, Lo-Pass filter, Gain, Drive, Contour*, Bass, Mid, Treble, Volume. Low Pass Filter is 24db/Octave control sweepable from OFF; 4Khz -down to 600Hz Drive control ranges from ultra-clean to slight tubey overdrive. Contour control is progressive shelving reduction of mids centered at 400hz, slight boost of bass and Treble at 80hz and 5Khz. EQ Section is modified Baxandall Circuit; Bass & Treble are passive and boost-only, Mid is Active cut & boost at either 400hz or 800hz. Channel 2: Channel Select*, Hi-Pass Filter, Drive, Character, Bass, Mid, Presence, Treble, Volume Hi-Pass Filter is 12db/Octave control sweepable from OFF; 200hz-800hz Drive control ranges from slight overdrive in its lowest settings to extreme guitar amp distortion Character knob is OFF at center (12o'clock), counterclockwise cuts hi-mids and boosts a wide Q from 100hz up, clockwise boosts mids and hi-mids centered at 3khz. EQ Section is all active, Bass is cut/boost at 100hz, Mid is cut/boost at 800hz, Presence control is boost-only at 2.5-3Khz, Treble is cut-only at 7.5Khz Description: The circuit starts with a one-knob compressor. After the compressor, the signal from the input can be routed to either Channel, or you can combine both Channels in parallel. Ch1 is a very usable and adjustable circuit that will fill a ton of roles. Think of GK's standard circuit. Clean, versatile, and crisp. Drive control can introduce subtle drive and tubby tones, with slight overdrive at higher levels. The LPF is OFF at it's lowest setting, with a bottom-detent. Once engaged, the LPF cuts highs and hi-mids throughout it's range, and acts like a the master tone control on a passive bass. This control can be used on it's own, or when both channels combined. Channel 2 is a drive only channel. The circuit layout allows you to create any drive, overdrive or distortion character imaginable, and mix it in with your clean signal from Ch1 via the independant volume controls. Or, the HPF and LPF filters can be engaged and true Bi-Amping can be achieved; just like using both a bass amp and a guitar amp live. Channel 2 can also be used alone for a single overdriven or distorted main tone, and footswitch in Channel 1 for quieter or clean passages. Each channel has it's own FX loop, with Channel 1's loop assignable to BOTH channels. Channel select / combine, FX loops and Mute are all Footswitchable. At the power section, you can assign the mixed signal to both channels, and run 2 cabinets, bridge the amp and run one large cabinet, or assign each channel to a dedicated power amp and run one low and one high cabinet. Around back, you have 3 speaker outputs: Channel 1 / Mix, Bridge Mono (mix only) and Channel 2 / Mix. Three DI's; Hi, Lo & mix with defeatable "Speaker Sim" hi-cut to remove "Fizz" from the drive channel, and the independent FX loops. There's also a Tuner and headphone out. Unit would be priced around $1,299 WOULD YOU BUY IT? WHY OR WHY NOT?
