Creating a good distorted bass tone has always presented a serious challenge for audio engineers and bassists alike. That is until the release of Darkglass electronics Microtubes X Ultra Bass Pedal. Whether it’s tracking in the studio or playing on the main stage, the Microtubes X Ultra combines the fat low frequencies and punchy high end in perfect harmony to create the ideal bass saturation.
Last year saw the release of the Microtubes X series multiband drives but the new Ultra variant takes versatility to a whole new level with the addition of new sound editing software. This gives you the ability to customise your bass tones and cabinet simulations. These can then be programmed into the pedal for perfect, personalised tone.
Microtubes X Ultra Multiband Distortion lets you craft the distorted bass tone of your dreams. Its versatility makes it perfect for in the studio or on the stage.
The pedal is a multiband bass distortion unit with an inbuilt clean channel and EQ comprising of a 4-band graphic with high and low shelving options. The main features include a balanced XLR output with switchable impulse response cabinet simulation.
There’s also USB connectivity for ample sound sculpting using the free Darkglass Suite software and a 3.5mm headphone output and auxiliary input as well as having a pure analog signal path. The pedal can be used in clean mode and act as a crisp solid bass preamp by hitting the bypass switch or kicked into a savage crunch by stomping the distortion switch.
