The Ultrawave Multiband Processor embarks on a pioneering journey into the advanced potential of overdrive and tremolo, exploring a brave new universe of sounds yet unheard. At the  Ultrawave’s core is a dynamic and multi-dimensional approach known as multiband processing.  This process splits the frequency spectrum of a guitar, bass, or synthesizer into multiple, discrete  frequency bands and equips each band with its own array of adjustable parameters. In the case of  overdrive, the Ultrawave splits the incoming signal and provides separate drive and output level  controls for each individual band. The result is a thick and rich distortion with loads of unique  overtones and dynamic interplay. Split the signal into 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, or 10 frequency bands, and  apply any of the band splitting options to an exciting collection of overdrive types, including  Tube, Diode, Foldback (a method of distortion often heard in the world of synthesizers), Octave  Up, Negative Flip Diode, and more.  

The Ultrawave also has an incredible companion collection of innovative sound processing blocks to take sound creation into vast new directions. These are found in the Neuro Desktop Editor  (free editing software for Mac or Windows) or Neuro Mobile App (free for iOS and Android). All  presets created in the Neuro editors can be loaded directly to the pedal, saved to a personal,  cloud-based preset library, and published to the Neuro Community to be easily accessed by other  Ultrawave owners. The dual channel compressor block includes studio level controls that can be  placed before or after the drive circuits. The Multiband Tremolo block provides individual control  of each band's tremolo depth, rate, and start time as well as its LFO wave shape. Changing the  LFO wave shape and varying the tremolo start times of each frequency band creates fantastically  propulsive sounds reminiscent of sequencer or arpeggiator effects. The LFO’s Ring Mod option  creates waves of retro/futuristic industrialism. The Morph feature explores the marvelous  potential of sound morphing, which allows musicians to smoothly transition from one super-

charged tone to another with an external expression pedal, LFO, or envelope follower. The  Ultrawave also has advanced stereo features that can send entirely different drive effects to each  of the outputs for a wide stereo field, place the effect in two places in a signal chain,  or generate  mind-spinning, ping-pong tremolo effects. Plug in, turn up, and explore the wonders of multiband  processing built on over a decade of refinement and experimentation.  

One Series Ultrawave Multiband Processor Features & Specifications:  

  • 37 Different Band Splitting Options: Band Splitting options including single, 2, 3, 4, 8, and 10 bands. Each band splitting option includes several sub-sets with different band splitting frequency points. 
  • 44 Different Distortion Types: Choose from distortion/overdrive/fuzz types that include Tube, Diode, Foldback, Negative Flip Diode, Octave Up, and more.
  • Dual Channel Compressor/Expander: Compressor features Input Gain, Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release, and Output Gain controls with a detailed graphic monitor. Use the dual channel capabilities to isolate compression to specific frequencies. Place the compressor/expander before or after the overdrive module. 
  • Multiband Tremolo: Use the Multiband Tremolo's different start time options to create sequencer or  arpeggiator type effects. Use the Band Phase Offset control to set up 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 or 10 beat patterns. Stereo Ins and Outs: Create two entirely different presets and run them in series, parallel or run each to a  separate output. Stereo options also apply to the Multiband Tremolo - use the Channel 1/Channel 2 Sync  options or the Phase Offset control to create stereo ping-pong, tremolo effects. 
  • Detailed LFO Controls: Use the LFO module to control the Ultrawave's Tremolo, Morphing or Ring Mod  features. Choose between a standard Sine Wave or use the Attack/Release controls to create highly  customized LFO shapes. 
  • Sound Morphing: Change from one sound to another with an expression pedal, envelope follower or LFO. 8 Band Graphic Equalizer 
  • Adjustable Noise Gate 
  • Assignable Knobs: Reassign all four of the Ultrawave's knobs to the parameters most useful for making  quick, on-stage changes. Save a different set of knob assignments for every preset. 
  • External Expression Pedal Control: Make simultaneous, on-the-fly changes of up to three parameters with  an external expression pedal. 
  • 6 Toggle Switch Accessible Presets: Quickly access up to 6 pedal presets with the Ultrawave's toggle  switch. 
  • Create, Save, and Share Presets with the Neuro Desktop Editor: Use the Neuro Desktop Editor to quickly  download presets created by other Ultrawave owners or create and publish your own presets and make  them accessible to entire Neuro Community. 
  • Neuro Mobile App. (for iOS or Android) – Connect your mobile device directly to the pedal for access an  extended set of adjustable parameters. Save and download customized effects to the pedal and share them  with other One Series owners. Connector cable included with pedal. 
  • Universal Bypass — Select either analog buffered or relay based True Bypass.
  • MIDI Capable — Connect the Ultrawave to the Source Audio Neuro Hub and access up to 128 presets with  MIDI Program Change (PC) messages. Control many of the pedal’s parameters with MIDI Continuous  Controller (CC) messages or assign LFO modulation speed with MIDI Clock. 
  • USB Port - Class compliant USB-MIDI allows the Ultrawave to work as a plug-and-play device with recording  software running on Mac and Windows. The USB port offers connectivity to the Neuro Desktop Editor  providing access to deep editing possibilities and pedal firmware updates. 
  • Brushed anodized aluminum housing - Dimensions: L: 4.5 in./11.4cm x W: 2.75 in./7cm x H: 2 in./5.1cm  (including knobs) 9V DC power supply included. 
  • Includes 9v DC power supply - 300mA / Negative tip / Pedal draws 150mA.
