The Darkglass Alpha-Omega Ultra is the most versatile bass preamp the Darkglass creators have come up with!  The Alpha-Omega Ultra has two distinct distortion circuits (Alpha and Omega), extremely high dynamic range, six band active graphic EQ, dedicated headphone output and balanced direct out with switchable digital impulse-response cabinet emulation make for an incredibly complete tool for the modern bass player.  

Darkglass Alpha-Omega Ultra Features:

Blend: 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.

Level: Sets the volume of the overdriven signal

Drive: Sets the amount of saturation in the overdriven signal

Bite Switch: Boosts high mids (2.8kHz for additional presence and definition. 

Growl Switch:  Shelving Bass Boost for a fatter tone and increased low end saturation. 

Mod: Selects or mixes between the two distinct distortion circuits: Alpha is punchy, tight with a lot of definition.  Omega is simply brutal and raw.  On the Darkglass Suite you can assign footswitch control of the Mod to toggle between Alpha and Omega.

Master Switch: Where the level knob controls the output of the overdrive section the Master volume adjusts the overall volume of the unit.  Ideal for fine tuning the output on clean mode.  It also serves as a DI and headphone volume control.  Please note that the volume is not affected by this control when the pedal is on bypass.

Bass: Low Shelf +/- 12dB @ 80Hz

Mid Bands: +/- 10dB @ 250Hz, 500Hz, 1.5kHz, 3kHz

Treble: High Shelf +/- 12dB @ 5kHz

Ground Lift: Disconnects the signal ground on the Direct Output to break any ground loops.  Set the switch to either position that has less noise.  The switch does not affect the 1/4" output.

Cab Sim: Toggle the cabinet simulation on/off on the Direct Output.  This switch completely bypasses all digital circuits and allows you to get zero latency signal when needed. 

Headphones: Alpha-Omega Ultra has an internal stereo headphone amp capable of driving a minimum load of 16ohms from the 3.5mm stereo jack.  Use the master volume control to adjust the level.

USB: A Micro USB B connector allows you to connect the pedal to a PC/MAC to load cabinet simulation impulse responses to the pedal and control various other settings.

Darkglass Alpha Omega Ultra Dimensions:
  • 125 x 96 x 57 mm
  • 4.92" x 3.77 x 2.24"

When the pedal is on bypass the master volume does not affect the headphone volume. In this case, the total volume is adjustable in Darkglass Suite. With sensitive headphones, the bypass volume can be very loud if not adjusted.

The Alpha·Omega Ultra has a current draw of 110mA. Only use a regulated 9V DC adapter with a center-negative plug. Due to ecological reasons, it does not accept batteries. Unregulated power supplies and/or higher voltages may result in sub-optimal noise performance and even damage your unit, voiding the warranty
