Supernova The Supernova; the ultimate all tube amp on the market. Modern day technology with all tube sound. Although this amp performs well on its own, for the more demanding user it has the ability to integrate fully with a MIDI controlled set-up. All 5 channels can all be voiced, using the toggle switches on the right, to the personal taste of the user and the settings then can then bestored in the internal memory ready for recall.
The FS6-SN footswitch (NOT included) enables you to either use this amp as a channel switching amp (the numbers on the footswitch correspond with the five channels) or you can use the amp as a “sound” switching amp. You can create sounds you want and save them under the footswitch button of your choice, ready for instant recall. As an extra you can add the FS2- SN footswitch which will enable you to switch “mute to tune” and to mute/by-pass all fx-loops with one push of the button. Besides working with the footswitch you can also control the amp with any MIDI controller on the market. You can then create 128 sounds with the Supernova and the rest of the gear you use in combination. Although the front panel has many knobs and switches we have kept the user interface very simple and clear. We wanted the user to be able to create new sounds instantly, without having to read the manual several times.
The key words of this amp are “versatility and ease of use”.
