Darkglass Alpha-Omega Ultra

The Darkglass Alpha-Omega Ultra is Darkglass' most versatile bass preamplifier to-date. 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, it makes 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.

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 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.

Features

- Alpha-Omega distortion engines
- Bypass and distortion footswitches to use distortion and EQ separately

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: The sound I got from this pedal is amazing but the distortion circuit took a crap after 6 months, the distortion started to sound fuzzy and uneven, the clarity and control of the the dist before was gone, sent it back through their warranty service, which is a head ache on its own. Sent it to them and waited about a month, I sent a email asking about the status, the said that they sent out a replacement 3 weeks prior to the address I wanted them to ship it too, but yet they did not inform me in any way causing the post office to return it or so they say. Long story short 3 weeks more has passed and still haven't got it back with the warranty service, post office, and FedEx making me do the runaround. Maybe it's just the pedal that I got but it's been a real let down to pay so much money on a pedal to have it crap out only 6 months in and have to deal with the warranty service.

Overall: I am sure that a review is not needed for this product But, for someone who might be on the fence as to which one to get or maybe your looking at cheaper products as well. I am telling you you will NOT be disappointed in this pedal! It is so easy to dial in a great "DG" bass tone, plus being able to blend Distortion with Overdrive is really awesome. In hindsight I probably should have just bought the A/O head and the smart footswitch. But I seriously LOVE this pedal!
