The Microtubes X Ultra greatly expands on the already immense versatility of the Microtubes X7. Featuring all the great controls that its predecessor has that allows users to select exactly what frequencies they want to compress and saturate for the low and treble respectively, but with four major additions providing an additional layer of flexibility, while maintaining the same compact footprint, making it an extremely complete tool for the modern bassist.
Splitting your signal in to Low and High bands, the Microtubes X Ultra gives you two filters for shaping your tone. The Low Pass filter controls the cut-off frequency to be mixed back to the high-pass side. Ranging from 50Hz (for only sub-bass) and 500Hz to preserve some clean mids. The Low band can also be affected by the compressor giving extra punch to those bottom-end frequencies. While the High Pass Filter controls the cutoff frequency to be distorted, ranging from 100Hz (for thicker, fuzzier saturation) or 1kHz for ultra-sharp definition.
The 6-band EQ, means the Microtube X Ultra is highly flexible and allows you to fit in, sonically, with whatever instruments you may be playing with. Theres even a Master slider, so you can make overall master output boots and cuts.
Loaded with Darkglass' sought after cabinet simulation, you can load up one of these excellent impulse responses to achieve an authentic mic'd cabinet tone when going into a DI or PA system, directly. Or toggle the Cab Sim off if you wish.
