Simplicity is the key to the SYN-2 rackmount hardware. Slide in up to two of Synergy's incredible preamp modules for your choice of classic amp sound. These pack in real tube tone from Friedman, Soldano, Morgan, Diezel and Bogner – just to name a few.
From there, run the SYN-2 direct into an audio interface, powered cab or front of house for recording and live playing. The SYN-2 is a compact rack-form unit with all the features any modern guitarist would ever need, such as onboard cab simulation, a transparent FX loop, phantom power and MIDI capabilities.
Here's what Synergy say about the SYN-2 preamp:
Unlock the full potential of your Synergy preamp modules with the powerful SYN-2 Dual Module Tube Preamp. The SYN-2 unleashes your boutique tube tone in three extremely useful ways. The cabinet-simulated direct output sends your 12AX7-driven tone direct to your recording console with the exact sound and feel of a high-end tube amp.
By taking advantage of the SYN-2's direct recording and performance capabilities, you'll send the real sound and feel of some of the world's most iconic tube amplifiers right to your track or front-of-house. The SYN-2's direct XLR output boasts a cabinet simulation that is second to none, offering you a studio-grade tone that is as effortless to attain as hooking up an XLR cable.
Do you have your own impulse response that you'd rather use? No problem. Simply bypass the cab sim on the back of the unit. And to further dial in your tube-amp experience, we worked hand in hand with legendary amp designer, Steven Fryette to outfit the SYN-2 with a front-mounted Sag control, supplying you with the feel and response that only a great tube amp can give.
TURNS ANY AMP "BOUTIQUE"
Whether you’re a touring musician who relies heavily on rented amps or are just unhappy with the tone of your current rig, the SYN-2 is an answered prayer. Simply run your guitar into this preamp and plug the unit into your amplifier's series effects loop return or power amp input. You've now bypassed the amplifier's preamp, giving complete tonal control to the SYN-2.
With the simple swap of a module you can turn your current amp into a Diezel VH4, a Friedman BE, a Morgan AC40, or any other of the top-tier amp models represented in the Synergy line. And because each module boasts two footswitchable channels and an effects loop, you're able to effortlessly call up new tones on the fly.
