Aggressively Distorting Advanced Machine – Bass Player’s Dream Pedal

Are you tired of carrying heavy equipment? I am and this pedal is the solution.

From Darkglass…

The Aggressively Distorting Advanced Machine* is the result of a collaboration with one of the most celebrated artists in today’s metal scene – Adam “Nolly” Getgood. This pedal captures Nolly’s entire tonal arsenal meticulously refined by years of in-depth testing and experience in one striking enclosure.

The Aggressively Distorting Advanced Machine has three fully programmable rotating footswitch presets. Each of these stores your unique blend of compression, distortion, impulse responses, EQ parameters, and signal chain settings. Featuring a unique and innovative top-notch precision touch slider interface, for its 6-band programmable EQ.

It also incorporates a USB-C audio interface and balanced stereo outputs for studio monitors and is equipped with an extra accurate chromatic tuner, that also works well with down-tuned guitars and basses.

Yes it’s has a lot of distortion that is well balanced but it can be mellowed out and have a well-balanced tone.

I am now able to go to a gig and bring a bass and this pedal and I’m able to plug right into the PA system…with effects and a cab simulator.

Here are a list of features:

Features

Compression

Controls the amount of input gain to the compressor and intelligently applies the correct amount of makeup gain so that your signal is always driven at the appropriate level, no matter how much compression is applied.

Drive

Adds distortion and drive to your signal. Crank this knob to apply Nolly’s favorite vintage distortion to the distorted part of the signal chain.

Character

Changes the tone of the distortion, adding brightness to the distortion signal.

Blend

Mixes between the distortion signal and the clean sidechain signal

Level

Controls the master volume of Aggressively Distorting Advanced Machine.
