Huge Selection of Tones
Whether you’re aiming for vibrant American styles cleans, gnarly British dirty tones, or you want to combine both with octave and modulation effects, the HeadRush can do it. Powered by the newest version of AVID Eleven Rack HD Expanded software, the HeadRush Pedalboard is packed with authentic amplifier models, cabinets, microphones, and effects.
The simple-to-assign switches mean building your perfect pedalboard is incredibly easy. The expression pedal alone can link up to four (eight if you use the additional expression pedal input) effect or amplifier parameters per patch. This allows you to control any parameter you choose without your hands leaving the fretboard.
Signal routing is near limitless, with pre-sets for stereo amplifiers, wet/dry/wet rigs, and 4-cable method patches. You can even assign outputs to split dry and wet signals to run simultaneously, making recording and live performance with the HeadRush even more versatile.
Super Fast Workflow
The HeadRush Pedalboard is the new standard in multi-fx units. The multi-touch seven-inch screen lets you get started and make changes, without diving into a manual. Much like a smart phone or tablet, the touch screen allows for an immediate change to be made with just your finger tip. Moving pedals around in your signal chain or changing any parameters, a simple drag and drop not only speeds up your workflow, but also means you spend less time with your hands away from your instrument.
The reinforced touchscreen is not only easy to navigate, but it’s also incredibly clear from any angle. Whether you’re crammed into a pub corner with no light or you’re playing main stage festivals, the touchscreen display provides clarity no matter the venue. The premium LED scribble strips above each of the 12 footswitches allow you to know what is assigned to which footswitch with just a quick glance.
Recording, Connectivity, and Re-amp Capabilities
The HeadRush can be used either as a standalone unit or it can easily integrate into your current setup. Two XLR outputs (with a ground lift switch) allows you to go directly into a desk, whilst two ¼-inch jack outputs allow for a stereo amp set-up (you can also go direct into a desk with the additional line-level boost). The unit also boasts a stereo FX loop, allowing you to integrate pedals or outboard you already own seamlessly into your HeadRush signal chain.
The USB connection on the back of the HeadRush offers even more versatility. The USB can simply transfer your patches onto your computer for safe keeping, as well as download patches from the HeadRush Cloud (which allows users to share patches with one another). You can also upload your own cabinet IRs (Impulse Responses) to the HeadRush, meaning you can expand your sound with custom impulses.
You can also record and re-amp via the USB connection. The USB allows for four channels in and out, including a stereo dry and wet signal all at 24-bit rate, 96kHz sample rate, meaning every note is captured at extremely high quality. To re-amp, once the board is connected into your DAW (Direct Audio Workstation), simply send the signal to the HeadRush, set the HeadRush to ‘Re-Amp’ in the USB settings and hit record.
