The upgraded Darkglass Microtubes B7K Ultra features all the versatility and sonic possibilities of the first version plus: Single user loadable cabinet simulation impulse response. Micro-USB B port to connect to PC/Mac to load a different Virtual Cabinet through the Darkglass Suite. 3.5mm headphone output with cabinet simulation. Balanced XLR output with switchable cabinet simulation.
Darkglass Microtubes B7K ULTRA V2 Aux Features:
Master: Adjusts the overall volume of the overall unit. The Master knob is ideal for fine tuning the output on clean mode. It also serves as a DI level control.
Blend: Mixes the clean input signal with the overdriven signal. The clean signal remains at unity gain while the volume of the overdriven signal is set by the Level knob, allowing for fine control of the blend ratio
Level: Sets the volume of the overdriven signal
Drive: Sets the amount of saturation in the overdriven signal
Attack Switch: Sets the amount of treble content to saturate. This new switch helps to keep the treble portion of the signal under control when playing with brighter basses or through cabs with horns or tweeters.
"Boost" = The boost setting emphasizes the treble content for extra clarity and presence
"Flat" = The flat setting leaves this register untouched
"Cut" = The cut position will reduce the amount of high frequencies being saturated.
Grunt Switch: Sets the amount of low frequency content to saturate by selecting between three different bass boost levels before the clipping stage
Low: +/- 12dB @ 100Hz
Low Mids: +/- 12dB @ Switchable 250Hz / 500Hz / 1kHz
Hi Mids: +/- 12dB @ Switchable 750Hz / 1.5kHz / 3kHz
Treble: +/- 12dB @ 5kHz
Direct Output: A balanced version of the 1/4" output, useful for running a PA's or studio mixing consoles
Ground Lift: Disconnects the signal ground on the Direct Output to break any ground loops. Set this 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 a zero latency signal when needed.
Headphones: B7K Ultra has an internal stereo headphone amplifier capable of driving a minimum load of 16ohms from the 3.5mm stereo jack. Use the Master Volume control to adjust the headphone level.
USB: A Micro USB B connector allows you to connect the pedal to PC/Mac to load cabinet simulation impulse responses to the pedal and control various other settings.

The Darkglass Microtubes B7K 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. Unregulaaated power supplies and/or higher voltages may result in suboptimal noise performance and even damage your unit, voiding the warranty.
