Quad Cortex Amp & Effects list

Is there a complete list of all 50+ amps and 70+ effects that will ship with the QC?

Looks like a pretty killer selection! I assume that these may be subject to change by September release. I hope we’ll get some more fuzz, pitch, modulation, and looper effects by then as well.


Thank you so much for this effort :slight_smile:

small correction, the second friedman is Friedman HBE obviously :slight_smile:

Yes, but that’s just channel 3 on the BE100, right?

Few bits missing on the effects list I’m sure. Pitch shifter? From the Q&A that’s being included I think. Other modulation effects? Chorus/Phaser/Flanger. Any Synth stuff?

Yeah, assuming they’ll add more modules - but it looks like this list is everything in the current beta UI as placeholder content.

Reverb: GATE
…would be so cool!!

I’d suspect that the Fumble is much more likely to be based on the ODS than the SSS. Very few Dumble models are based on the SSS. The ODS model does more the smooth drive thing like Santana where SRV is the best-known SSS player. The SSS is more of a clean machine than the ODS.


In the distorted bass section I understand we can include the Parallax plugin, which seems to be an a comprehensive extension of the Darkglass X preamp pedal.

Great selection, but somewhat puzzled concerning the effects: No generic Chorus, Flanger and/or Phasers recognized from the list (or are these in the filter section under strange names?). And I am also clearly missing a harmonizer/whammy. Would be really nice with a pre-defined dynamic/ducking delay too.

Other than that, only one amp wish:

  • Classic Rockman (clean and driven)

These are just the fx in the beta current as of namm. I’m certain at sept release there’ll be most if not all ‘core’ fx present.

We are preparing the actual list we’re working on for September, as well as an extended list of models and features to be added in subsequent (free) firmware updates.

It should be on our site within a day or two.


Hello Everyone. The list of virtual devices that will be available on the Quad Cortex at launch was just published. Take a look at it:


Nice! I was pretty close :wink:

I’d love to see a few more classic Orange Amps in the future:

  • OR-120 (definitely this one!)
  • OR-200
  • OR-80
  • Thunderverb 200
  • Custom Shop 50
  • AD-30
  • Tiny Terror
  • Dark Terror

Doom players will rejoice.

Great list of devices! But synth is very necessary. Still need effects like filter / sequence.
