Formerly Quad Cortex Development Update - June 2021
We are making fantastic progress with CorOS and development on Cortex Cloud. We previously intended to release CorOS 1.0.4 to bring the Delay & Reverb optimizations and auto-engage feature forward while we continued to work on CorOS 1.1.0; the version for which they were originally planned.
As 1.1.0 has progressed quicker than we anticipated, we have decided to not make version 1.0.4 and we’ll instead release 1.1.0 in its place. Beta testing for 1.1.0 has already begun, and we expect it to be available within the next couple of weeks.
CorOS 1.0.3 was released on May 31st and included Multi-Out as well as a handful of bug fixes. We also just released Cortex Mobile 1.1, which most notably includes new sharing functionality to allow you to link to Profiles/Presets/Captures from outside of the app.
CorOS 1.1.0 is our biggest release so far, and fixes and changes a lot of items in the background that will improve system performance and edge-case issues. It also includes the Delay & Reverb optimizations, as well as expression pedal auto-engage, a new Flanger, and several user experience improvements that we will detail in the changelog.
The Plate Reverb, Shimmer, Pitch Shifter/Harmonizer, Freeze, and the new amps are still being developed and will be made available after 1.1.0. Furthermore, the planned increase of Capture & IR storage capacity will likely be introduced in version 1.1.1, which will follow soon after 1.1.0.
Preset & Capture Bundling when sharing, and the improved File Manager & Metadata will proceed alongside some big changes to Cortex Cloud. We’ll share more information about this soon.
We have shipped over 5,000 units now, and Quad Cortex recently landed in Japan! If you are still waiting to receive a Quad Cortex you have pre-ordered from a dealer, thank you for your continued patience. Our manufacturing team continues to work tirelessly to get all units delivered as quickly as possible.
