Laney IRT-PULSE Ironheart Tube USB Preamp
Forged deep within the Black Country the metal beating industrial heartland of the UK where the sound of metal music was born, comes the IRT-PULSE. The IRT-PULSE opens up a new world of opportunities for guitarists and is a totally new way of experiencing the legendary IRONHEART tone. The IRT-PULSE is a tube-loaded multi functional guitar interface, you can plug into the IRT-PULSE and instantly have your tube tone wherever you want it.
There are a huge amount of applications you can use your IRT-PULSE for! The on board T-USB 2.0 interface gives you a direct route into your DAW, with nothing to get in the way. The IRT-PULSE also enables leadless re-amping at the push of a button saving valuable time in the studio nailing your guitar tone. With on-board cabinet emulation and a headphone facility the IRT-PULSE is a totally silent all tube practice rig. With a pair of high gain ECC83's on board and a footswitch option the IRT-PULSE is as happy sat in front of your favourite amp as a boutique boost pedal! And with comprehensive EQ and on board cabinet emulation the IRT-PULSE is the ultimate compact rig. Simply rock up, plug into the PA and you are ready, nothing could be simpler or sound better than an IRT-PULSE.
The IRT-PULSE works across any platform whether it's PC/MAC/iPAD/Android. It is designed to give you true Ironheart performance in a convenient desktop package, directly into your DAW using the T-USB 2.0 interface. The USB2.0 Bidirectional interface simultaneously sends an amped and a dry signal to your DAW via different channels, allowing you to re-amp the dry signal later using the leadless re-amp feature simply hit the re-amp button and your original dry guitar track is re routed via the USB socket back through the IRT-PULSE. With real tube tone into your DAW thanks to the two ECC83 high voltage tubes on board the IRT-PULSE features two modes REGULAR and HOT. Regular allows you to dial in a small amount of tube drive giving you a really nice amount of natural break up whilst hot mode switches you into real IRONHEART lead tone and everything in between. The IRT-PULSE comes equipped with a switchable on-board cabinet emulation the same as the great sounding cabinet emulation as the IRT-STUDIO. So you can use the on-board emulation or record it dry and add an IR from you DAW. It's your choice.
With the availability of floor based pedal loop technology high end boost pedals have never been more popular and non sound as good as the IRT-PULSE and believe me we've tried the best! Equipped with a footswitchable bypass function the IRT-PULSE is as happy sat on your pedal board, as it is sat on your desk and it's two high voltage ECC83's tubes provide masses of front-end gain to any amplifier. It will happily sit in with the rest of your pedals on your pedal board.
In order to cater for different amplifier characteristics the IRT-PULSE has a number of EQ options, Dark, Bright and EQ. When connecting to an overly bright amplifier use the DARK switch to cut some of the HF in the IRT-PULSE signal, conversely if you are connecting to a dark sounding amp then engage the BRIGHT switch to boost the high end of the IRT-PULSE and for general tone shaping the EQ button calls up a fixed EQ curve which boosts the bass and tops whilst pulling back the mids giving you a very pleasing sound.
Soft case and power supply included.
