The most powerful floor modeler on the planet

Vulgar Display of Power

Quad Cortex is the most powerful floor modeler on the planet. With 2GHz of dedicated DSP from its Quad-Core SHARC® architecture, this ludicrous amount of processing capacity provides limitless sound design possibilities.

Want to run four amplifier models, stereo reverbs, and a plethora of other effects simultaneously? Quad Cortex won’t even break a sweat.

Neural Capture

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.

We are collaborating with some of the best producers and sound designers to provide an ever-growing collection of free rig captures in addition to our full-circuit models.

As good as it gets

Quad Cortex packs a vast amount of state-of-the-art emulations of your favorite gear with unprecedented accuracy and unbelievably natural dynamic response.

An ever-expanding collection of guitar and bass algorithms

Cabsim

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.

Powerful parametric EQ

Absolute control at your fingertips. Taking full advantage of the 7” multi-touch display, our parametric EQ is intuitive and fun to use.

Unparalleled Intuitiveness & Flexibility

We figured out a better way to do modelers.

With its massive 7” multi-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.

Visualize and control the settings of inputs and outputs with one swipe.

Switching Modes

Switching modes couldn’t be easier, providing easy access to features and switch customization.

Stomp Mode: Assign and activate any block in a rig to a footswitch like you would with an analog pedalboard.

Scene Mode: Select any footswitch to instantly activate and control the settings of any number of blocks within a rig.

Preset Mode: Instant access to 8 virtual rigs.

Unbelievably Compact

Using advanced mechanical design and manufacturing techniques, we managed to not only build the most powerful floor modeler/multi-effects processor on the planet, we also managed to pack it all in an extremely compact format.

Components

Quad Cortex comes in a gorgeous anodized aluminum unibody, with laser engraved graphics that never fade.

Our multi-touch display is armored with a 1.8mm chemically strengthened Corning® protective glass.

Neural Capture ™Proprietary stainless steel stomp+rotary actuators

2GHz Quad-Core SHARC® architectureWiFi module for wireless preset sharing, cloud backups, over-the-air firmware updates, and more!

Anodized aluminum unibodyUse Quad Cortex as a high-fidelity interface, with Cirrus Logic codecs and an ultra-low-latency USB audio transmission.

1. Dual Combo Inputs: TS, TRS, and XLR, variable impedance and level controls, built-in microphone preamps, and phantom power supplies.

2. Dual effects-loops: ideal for embedding external mono, or stereo effects into your signal chain, as well as additional input/output jacks.

3. 1/4” Output jacks: two mono, balanced (TRS) outputs provide pristine sound quality and optimal noise performance.

4. XLR Output jacks: two mono, balanced XLR output jacks

5. Headphone Output: ideal for quiet practicing.

6. MIDI In, Out/Thru: receive and send MIDI messages to automate switching and control of every parameter in Quad Cortex, as well as controlling other units.

7. Dual Expression Inputs: connect up to two expression pedals. They can be assigned to control wahs, volume, as well as pitch-shifting algorithms

8. USB: Ultra-low latency audio transmission, firmware updates, MIDI, and more.

9. 11 stainless steel stomp+rotary actuators allow for switching and rotational control (just like the footswitches and knobs you are used to, but unbreakable).

All audio connectors are Neutrik®

Neural CNS

Seamlessly Integrate Cortex with your favorite devices

Explore and share endless presets on the cloud using Neural CNS Mobile. It syncs up to your device, and with Quad Cortex’s built-in WiFi module all the presets are beamed wirelessly.

Cortex Desktop Controller allows you to control the floor unit in real-time, as well as direct access to Neural CNS for exploring, sharing and downloading presets with the Cortex users community

Pre order

Thanks to your unbelievable support, the first 1,000 pre-orders have sold out!

We are making a further 1,000 units available to pre-order, and expect these to ship by November 2020. Any pre-orders that are cancelled from the first 1,000 will be reallocated to customers who have pre-ordered from the second batch. You may receive your Quad Cortex sooner than Nov 2020. This second shipment will also be stocking select dealers. The best way to guarantee getting a unit by this time is to pre-order.

The second batch of pre-orders do not come with any additional perks, but still ensure you receive a Quad Cortex as soon as possible.

1. Pay a fully refundable 200€ (EU) / 200$ (Rest of the World) deposit to reserve your Quad Cortex.

2. When your unit is ready to ship, pay the remaining 1399 €/$ + shipping fees (EUR pricing includes VAT)

3. Your Quad Cortex will be shipped to you within 5 working days.
