What do Foo Fighters, Slipknot and Wintersun have in commo? The common thing are guitar and bass effect boxes come from Finland. Finnish Darkglass Electronics and Neural DSP export state-of-the-art instrument technology to the world.
Neural DSP is developing technology to advance the state of the art in the music industry – mainly effect plug-ins and DSP software and Quad Cortex DSP guitar effect box. Darkglass Electronics concentrates on making effect box hardware. Neural DSP has fast become a household name on the new frontier of amp modelling and guitar effects.
Neural DSP Quad Cortex is a pro-quality amp modeller and effects unit that presents its many features in an easy-to-use format. The Quad Cortex, is a floor-based unit that presses all that next-gen algorithmic sorcery into service in an anodised aluminium unibody. The Quad Cortex features a bright seven-inch LED touch-screen that allows you to adjust parameters and arrange signal chain. User can adjust the sounds and access all the functions from the touch-screen and the stomp+rotary actuators.
The Quad Cortex derives 2GHz of DSP power from SHARC+ processors that gives it its name, and this puts a lot of sounds on the menu. Quad Cortex may be the most powerful floor modeler on the planet with a total of 6 cores (4x SHARC+ and 2x ARM Cortex-A5 running at 500MHz each).
Here is one video I found from YouTube related to Slipknot and Neural DSP Quad Cortex:
