Neural DSP Quad Cortex Announces Major Software Update, It Has 9 New Amps and More

Advancing every year, digital guitar amp and effects modeling is now largely on par with the “real” thing. The latest company to introduce an improvement is Neural DSP, well-known for their Quad Cortex modeler. And now, their primary product has had a major software update with CorOS 1.4.0.  

Primarily, Quad Cortex now has the much-anticipated Minivoicer. Along with that, there are 9 new amp models, 3 new overdrives, 10 effects, a bunch of new features, and some minor changes and fixes. 

The Minivoicer in question is an “intelligent” algorithm that allows you to have two pitch-shifted voices over the main signal. Using the library, you can control the root note, create chords, harmonize in modes, and even arpeggiate.

  • Bogna Uber Clean (Bogner®Überschall®Rev. Blue-Clean)
  • Bogna Uber Lead (Bogner®Überschall®Rev. Blue-Lead)
