The revolutionary analog speaker simulator

This is a world first.. the Ultimate Cab, is the result of several years of research and development.

It is a fully analog audio interface, with resolutely modern features integrated in a 1 unit rack.

The heart of the Ultimate Cab is a filter carved for months in the studio and on stage, to ensure exceptional sound, both in the comfort of playing of the guitarist and in the sound experience of the listener.

The Ultimate Cab is the Swiss army knife of the guitarist who wants to perfectly control his sound identity, whatever the stage and studio configuration.

A reactive Loadbox and… a 100w power breaker

The Loadbox function is very interesting to play and record “silently”. In this case, the power amplifier connected to it must have a constant impedance to operate correctly and optimally. The Ultimate Cab integrates a Loadbox that can not only properly charge the amp that is connected, but also can adapt to the 3 output impedance values ​​widely used namely 4, 8 and 16 ohms. Thanks to this possibility, only one Ultimate Cab is needed to use different impedance amplifiers … again, only one device is enough!

In addition to this Loadbox, a power attenuator is used to connect a cabinet and lower the output volume up to 20% of the power of the input signal. This is ideal for enjoying the warm sound of the tubes of your favorite amp head with a high volume, in a rehearsal room or in an apartment. Unlike most power attenuators on the market, the Ultimate Cab maintains the integrity of sound quality, even with maximum attenuation.

One virtual Speaker, all ANALOG

The guarantee of a sound faithful to the game of the musician and his amp can only be assured by analog technology. Here, no sampling, signal cutting or digital reconstruction, but discrete, passive and active components.
The Ultimate Cab contains several filters designed and calibrated for months, in studio and on stage, and faithfully reproduce the character and dynamics of the signal on its inputs. The response curve can be changed thanks to the setting of “Shape”, which works mainly on the level of sibilant notes, in the treble field.
Further down the audio chain, at the “Mixer” and “Monitors” outputs, there is an active 3-band equalizer to refine the tone of the signal.
A 6 LED vumeter – of different colors – indicates the level of the input signal, adjustable with the “Gain” knob. Finally, the output of this section is distributed to the 2 output sections “Mixer” and “Monitors”.

A mic preamp for speaker miking

In addition to the speaker simulator section, you can also use a microphone for miking your favorite speaker and blend if with the simulator ! The mix between the two signals is possible with the “Mix” setting on each output.

Thus you can send more or less sound provided by the miking to the mix table or your monitoring system.

This Mic preamp has all the features that you can find on high end products, such as : 48V Phantom power, +20dB amplification, and phase polarity.

Furthermore, he has a 3-bands active equalization to tune the miking sound color, like you would do with different microphones.

Independent XLR ouputs

The Ultimate CAB has two fully independent outputs, each with active 3-band equalization. On these 2 outputs there is an output level control (Master), as well as a MIX control allowing to mix the simulated signal with the signal coming from the miking section is used.

At the rear, each XLR output has a mini switch to disconnect the earth conductor to solve earth loop problems.

Multi-impedances : one device is enough !

The power section of the Ultimate Cab is designed to perate at 4, 8 or 16 ohms. No need to buy multiple devices to play with your favorite amps and cabinets, just one Ultimate Cab is necessary.
