Is This the Most Versatile Bass Preamp Ever?
The Darkglass Alpha·Omega Ultra might be one of the most versatile bass preamps ever. At its core are two discrete distortion circuits that allow you to explore exciting tonal frontiers while reveling in boundless dynamic range. Sculpt fresh sonic textures with a 6-band active graphic EQ. Then pipe everything through a single-user digital impulse-response cabinet emulation. And you're in complete command, with Bypass and Distortion footswitches that allow separate use of the Alpha·Omega Ultra's distortion and EQ. The Alpha·Omega Ultra also includes a headphone output, switchable ground lift, and a Micro-USB B port for loading new virtual cabinets from your Mac or PC.
Take studio-grade cabinet emulations everywhere you go
The right speaker cabinet can lend a massive, natural tone to your bass. But capturing that sound is easier said than done. Not only do you need a well-tuned cabinet, but you also need a great-sounding room and an expensive microphone. And if you're trying not to disturb the neighbors, that's a whole different issue. But thanks to the Alpha·Omega Ultra's digital impulse-response cabinet emulation, you have a complete array of top-of-the-line cabs at your disposal. Built directly into the Alpha·Omega Ultra's XLR output, this studio-grade effect will inject your rig with uncompromising, ready-to-mix bass tones. And loading up a new cabinet is easy — just plug into your Mac or PC via the Alpha·Omega Ultra's Micro-USB B port. The cab simulation is also integrated into the pedal's headphone output.

Fantastic unit, so many uses in so many situations, from just beefing up a tone or EQing it, to huge, aggressive yet smooth distortion. Coupled with the volume control and cab IR on the DI, I use this unit in pretty much everything in at least one form!
