Here's what ProAnalog say about the Manticore Overdrive:
Scotty’s game changing Manticore has been at the forefront of a re-education about guitar pedals and has truly made its mark on the guitar world by setting a whole new standard for overdrives in the market across the globe.
Since its explosive release in 2017, Scotty has been determined to make his trend setting pedal even greater and, after months of tireless effort and development, the newly evolved Manticore version 2 is finally ready to be released and is primed to set a whole new standard for overdrives World-Wide.
Manticore version 2 is even more unique and tonefully versatile than ever before. It has been equipped with a broader dynamic range and gain structure that allows the player to finely tune the pedals voice and gain to suit their needs. Manticore version 2 can do it all from an always on lush and sparkling amp enhancer to an enormous and tonesome clean boost.
With the Gain and Savage controls engaged, this harmonically rich overdrive turns into a weapon of rock delivering crunchy rhythm tones, smooth lead tones and even raging Metal tones without sacrificing clarity and touch response. The complex and rich overtones within the pedal allows the player to easily generate harmonics from the 2nd, 3rd and 5th making their guitar and amp sing smoothly into sustained and controlled feedback.
OEM electronic true bypass soft switching circuitry design: a new control called Savage which is a unique low pass filter / bass control that adds gain, punch and fattens up your guitar signal as though you just plugged into a 4X12 cab! It's called Savage because when you dime it, it RAGES!
