Vulgar Display of Power

Quad Cortex is 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), this ludicrous amount of processing capacity provides limitless sound design possibilities.

Want to run four amplifier models, stereo reverbs, and a plethora of other effects simultaneously? Quad Cortex won’t even break a sweat. 

As good as it gets

Quad Cortex packs a vast amount of state-of-the-art emulations of your favorite gear with unprecedented accuracy and unbelievably natural dynamic response.

Neural Capture

Capture, share and download your favorite rigs’ sounds. Equipped with a unique biomimetic AI technology, Quad Cortex can learn and replicate the sonic characteristics of any physical amplifier, overdrive, and cabinet with unprecedented accuracy.

Unlike any other, the sophisticated neural network algorithm perceives sound akin to human perception, making it the most natural-sounding capture solution on the planet.

Neural is collaborating with some of the best producers and sound designers to provide an ever-growing collection of free rig captures in addition to their full-circuit models.

Quad Cortex Front View

An ever-expanding collection of guitar and bass algorithms

Cab Block

With over 1000 perfectly captured impulse responses, Quad Cortex ships with one of the most extensive IR collections on the planet – and it is the only of its kind equipped with virtual microphones that can be positioned around the speaker like in a real studio. Third-party IRs are extremely easy to load.

Powerful parametric EQ

Absolute control at your fingertips. Taking full advantage of the 7” multi-touch display, the parametric EQ is intuitive and fun to use.

Unparalleled Intuitiveness & Flexibility

Nueral DSP figured out a better way to do modelers.

Display

With its massive 7” multi-touch display, Quad Cortex is unbelievably easy to use. Effortlessly create even the most complex signal paths.

Drag-and-drop

Drag-and-drop blocks to change the order or routing in seconds.

Inputs & Outputs

Visualize and control the settings of inputs and outputs with one swipe.

Switching Modes

Switching modes couldn’t be easier, providing easy access to features and switch customization.

Stomp Mode

Assign and activate any block in a rig to a footswitch like you would with an analog pedalboard.

Scene Mode

Select any footswitch to instantly activate and control the settings of any number of blocks within a rig.

Preset Mode

Instant access to 8 virtual rigs.

Unbelievably Compact

Using advanced mechanical design and manufacturing techniques, Neural managed to not only build the most powerful floor modeler/multi-effects processor on the planet, they also managed to pack it all in an extremely compact format.
