The Neural DSP Quad Cortex

Announced at the NAMM 2020 instrument trade show, the Quad Cortex is Neural DSP’s first ever hardware instalment in their line-up. It’s also unequivocally the most powerful modeling preamp in the world.

That means it can run and store an incredible amount of highly detailed guitar amp settings and effects at the same time without breaking a sweat. This is all thanks to the impressive 2GHz Quad-Core SHARC architecture – the future of amp modeling technology.

Sound Library

Neural DSP are renowned worldwide for their extraordinarily precise and pristine amp tones, cab simulations and effects. There’s an ever-growing library of over 1000 algorithms to design your perfect guitar sound. All Neural DSP have to offer will be available in the Quad Cortex.

It is no surprise that Neural DSP is the go-to software for the next generation of guitar virtuosos, such as Rabea Massaad, Animals as Leaders’ Tosin Abasi, Plini and industry engineers like Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood.

User Interface

Not only does the Quad Cortex house one of the most extensive sound collections on the planet, but it’s also one of most effortless to use.

Tinker endlessly using the powerful parametric EQ, accessible via the crisp 7” multi-touch display. Virtual microphones can be positioned as you wish. Signal path blocks can be dropped in exactly where you want within seconds. Use the rotary stomp switches to customise amp settings and assign up to eight presets for instant tonal access. Unreal potential.

Size and Connectivity

Weighing in at just 1.6kg and more compact than an Apple MacBook Pro, the Quad Cortex is ideal for touring musicians, guitarists cutting down on gear clutter, or for those with restricted space and volume levels.

Slot the Quad Cortex into any setup – stereo or mono. It’s equipped with TS, TRS and XLR compatibility with a built-in mic preamp and phantom power for your condenser microphones. Two effects send/returns let you incorporate your favourite effects pedals into your sound. MIDI ins/outs can automate switching and control every parameter within the Quad Cortex. There’s even a headphone output for silent playing.
