Key Features

  • Dual Effects Loops: Apply different effects chains to your high and low frequencies. Run a fuzz pedal solely on your lows, add lush reverb to just your highs, or experiment with countless unique combinations.
  • Dedicated FX for Bass: The XO eliminates the muddy lows that often plague bass guitar effects. Finally, you can unleash the full potential of your favourite guitar pedals on bass without compromising your bottom end.
  • Variable Crossover: Seamlessly adjust the central crossover frequency to dictate exactly where your signal splits. The intuitive Crossover Frequency control and dedicated guitar/bass Range switch offer precision tone sculpting.
  • Tilt-EQ Functionality: Even without effects, the Return Balance dial acts as a powerful tilt EQ, boosting high or low frequencies while adjusting the centre frequency for dynamic tonal changes on the fly.

What is a Crossover, and Why Is the XO Unique?

Think of a crossover as a precision frequency filter. Unlike standard EQs, the XO’s active 12dB/octave filters give you sharp, targeted control over your sound. The core of the XO lies in its ability to move the central crossover frequency for boundless sonic exploration.
