Cool Pedal Alert: Neural DSP Quad Cortex Digital Effects and Amp Modeler

Mulit-effects/amp sim floor pedals are not new. What makes the Neural DSP Quad Cortex Quad-Core Digital Effects Modeler/Profiling Floorboard (say that three times fast) newsworthy is its incorporation of an iPad type touch screen and its capture technology. From Mitch Gallagher’s concise, comprehensive demo, the device seems well thought out and elegantly simple. Unfortunately there seems to be no info on the onboard effects, but the board does allow you to capture the sound of both amps and effects. From the Anderton’s video, the effect capture seems pretty impressive. What do you think?


Dino Blog: Zoom MS 50 G

My review of the Zoom MS-100BT MultiStomp Guitar Pedal with Bluetooth will be coming up in Guitar Player magazine in the next couple of months, but until then check ou J.A. Deane’s rundown of the MS-50 G. “Dino” is a titan of improv and live sampling and knows whereof he speaks.

These Zoom units offer a plethora of classic and zany effects that sound great and all fit in one small pedal space on your board or table.
