This creation differs greatly from our previous preamplifiers and overdrives: it is fully operational amplifier based and has two distinct distortion circuits (Alpha and Omega) which can be selected or blended using our Mod knob. This unusual control, in conjunction with the toggle switches and 3 active band equalizer makes Alpha · Omega the most flexible among our designs.
Mixes the clean and processed signals. The clean signal remains at unity gain while the volume of the overdriven signal is set by the Level knob, allowing for fine mix tuning.
Sets the volume of the overdriven signal.
Sets the amount of gain in the overdriven signal.
Boosts High Mids (2.8kHz) for additional presence and definition.
Shelving Bass Boost for a fatter tone and increased low end saturation.
Selects or mixes between the two distinct distortion circuits: Alpha is punchy, tight with a lot of definition, whereas Omega is simply brutal and raw.

The Alpha · Omega has a current draw of 30mA. Only use a regulated 9V DC adapter with a center-negative plug.
Unregulated power supplies and/or higher voltages may result in suboptimal noise performance and even damage your unit, voiding the warranty.
Connect from the ¼” Output jack to the input of your amplifier or another effects pedal.
Use this control to lift the ground of the XLR output. If you are experiencing ground noise in your DI signal, try changing this control.
A balanced version of the ¼” output, useful for running into PA’s or studio mixing consoles.
Connect your instrument or output from your pedal board to the ¼” mono jack.
Only use a regulated 9V DC adapter with a center-negative plug.
A passthrough for your input signal, useful for parallel processing.
