Neural DSP Omega Ampworks Granophyre Review

Neural DSP Omega Ampworks Granophyre Review

Neural DSP have teamed up with Omega Ampworks for their latest guitar plugin and have brought the Granophyre into the digital realm. The single-channel monster seems like the perfect amp for a Neural DSP plugin but can this beast of an amp really be turned into a digital model without losing its edge?

Let’s find out.

Neural DSP Omega Ampworks Granophyre

This isn’t an Archetype plugin so it doesn’t have all of the features found in those plugins. Instead, we return to the same kind of format as the Fortin Suites. You get one amp, an overdrive pedal, a graphic EQ and a cab sim. Simple and straightforward. Continue reading →

Neural DSP Release The Omega Ampworks Granophyre Plugin

Neural DSP have just released their latest plugin, the Omega Ampworks Granophyre. This beast of an amp is paired with a digital recreation of the Earthquaker Devices Plumes overdive pedal to cover everything from dirty blues to crushing distortion along with a 9 band graphic EQ.

The amp features selectable EL34, 6L6 and KT66 power tubes, low gain setting for softer response, thicker tone, gentler highs, and rounder lows and a high gain setting for tighter low end, more saturation, more upper-mids. There is also a voice switch which changes the placement of your midrange focus. The cabinet section of the plugin features an Omega Ampworks Granophyre cab with 12 IRs per microphone.

Neural DSP Release The Quad Cortex Pedal

Neural DSP Release The Quad Cortex Pedal

Neural DSP are bursting into 2020 in a huge way, by releasing the Quad Cortex. Not content with dominating the amp and effects software market, they have now used their knowledge to develop their first physical product.

The Quad Cortex uses machine learning via Neural Capture. Neural Capture features a unique neural network architecture that is capable of autonomously analysing, learning, and replicating an amplifier’s sound and dynamic response in a way that closely resembles human perception for unparalleled accuracy and realism. Users can use Neural Capture to create profiles based on their own rig using the most accurate and powerful technology on the market.

Powered by 2Ghz of dedicated DSP from the Quad Cortex’s quad-core SHARC and dual ARM architectures, this hugely powerful pedal will be able to run 4 amp models, stereo reverb and multiple effects simultaneously. All of this power has been squeezed into a small and portable unit made from aluminium and featuring a 7-inch multi-touch screen. The stainless steel footswitches also rotary encoders for making adjustments to your settings.

Neural DSP Quad Cortex

The Quad Cortex will ship with 50+ amps, 70+ effects and 1000+ IRs. These will be expanded with free updates.

Neural CNS allows you to connect the Cortex to various devices via wifi allowing real-time control, preset sharing and updating wirelessly.

If Neural DSP’s software is anything to go by, the Quad Cortex is going to be a game-changer!

You can pre-order one of the first 1000 units now with a €200/$200 deposit. The total cost will be €1599/$1599 and orders will ship by September 2020.
