Our products feature knobs and switches within the Graphic User Interface, also known as GUI. These resemble the ones in the physical analog hardware with added control.
Audio Device Type: Enabled by default on Windows versions. Allows you to select the type of API that will communicate between your hardware and the application. Most of the time you will select ASIO as the audio device type.
Audio Device: Enabled by default on Windows versions. Allows you to select your audio interface as the main device.
Audio Input Device: Dropdown menu that allows the user to select the input audio driver.
Audio Output Device: Dropdown menu that allows the user to select the output audio driver.
Cab-Sim: To offer maximum flexibility, we engineered very comprehensive and adaptive cabinet simulation modules, featuring virtual microphones which can be positioned around the speakers. This module can also serve as a standard loader for your favorite impulse responses (IR files). These features can be used on both mono and stereo configurations; the latter allows for a second microphone to be added with full panning, microphone-level, and phase parameters in addition to position and distance, for ultimate control and endless sonic possibilities.
Cogwheel Icon: Clicking it opens the Audio Settings window, where you can select your audio device, I/O, sample rate, buffer size, and MIDI devices.
Developed by Neural DSP button: Click on it to reveal additional information about this product like version details, release date, and website shortcuts.
Drag to Position (Cab-sim): This feature refers to clicking on the Microphone, which will allow you to position the Microphone within the Cone area. The values will be reflected in the Position and Distance sliders and vice-versa.
EQ Bands: Tone Stack of the amplifiers.
Fine Control: To fine-adjust the knob values, hold down the “command key” (macOS) or the “control key” (Windows) while dragging the mouse.
Gate Knob: Attenuates the input signal below the threshold.
Gear Selector: With default settings, the amplifiers use to be connected with their default cabinets. You can select, switch, and combine them by clicking the icons at the bottom center of the plug-in window.
Knobs & Sliders: To turn a knob right or clockwise, click on the control with your mouse and slide the cursor up. To turn a knob left or anticlockwise, click on the knob with the mouse and slide the cursor down. To return to the knob’s default values, double-click on them.
Metronome Icon (Standalone only): Controls the delay time by clicking it. Delay Time is set as the interval between the last two clicks on the pad.
MIDI Input Devices: A list of all external MIDI devices connected to your system.
Navigation Arrows: Click on them to navigate through the different preset files. In the cab-sim section, you can use them to navigate through the impulses.
Pitchfork Icon (Standalone only): Click on it to activate the built-in tuner.
Preset File: A Neural DSP preset is a data file designed to recall the settings for all the sections of the plug-in. Those files are written in Extensible Markup Language, also known as XML, which are commonly used to store and share presets in audio plug-ins.
Quality Switch: Changes the quality with which the plugin will process the signal, based on different levels of oversampling (2x Normal and 4x High). The higher the quality, the more processing CPU power needed.
Resize button: Click to resize the plugin Window. You can select between 3 possible sizes. Only two sizes are available when using a low-resolution screen (Below 720p).
Section Bypass: To bypass a whole section, right-click or double-click on the upper icons. Pedal and Cab sections will be bypassed, but the Wah and Amplifier sections will be turned off. This feature is linked to the respective stomps in the pedals and switches on the amps.
Standalone App: This application is installed by default and allows you to plug & play. It's perfect for practice on the go and live use.
Stereo Signal Processing switch: Original hardware has the power to process only a mono input signal. With the Stereo switch, you are able to process a stereo input signal. Ideal for running stereo Guitar tracks or experimenting with any stereo sources.
Stomp switches: Stomps are used to handle on/off the pedals. To change the value of a stomp or a switch, just click on them. For stomp and some switches, a LED type indicator will illuminate to let you know a parameter is engaged.
Tap Tempo: Controls the delay time by clicking. Delay Time is set as the interval between the last two clicks on the stomp switch.
Toggle switches: Our products have two types of switches: stomp and toggle. Stomps are used to handle on/off the pedals, and toggles are used to move controls in the amplifiers section. To change the value of a stomp or a switch, just click on them. For stomp and some switches a LED type indicator will illuminate to let you know a parameter is engaged.
Tone Stack: It's a specialized type of audio filter incorporated into the circuit of an amplifier for altering their frequency response. Tone stacks are typically placed between the preamp and power amplifier and it can be controlled by tweaking the EQ bands at the amplifier section.
Tuner: Analyzes and displays the incoming monophonic pitch as well as its distance from the nearest semitone. Based on classic guitar tuners, tuner’s large display is designed for easy visibility and is perfect for tuning external instruments or synthesizers. Note that Tuner is not an audio effect, so it does not alter the incoming signal in any way.
