Introducing HeadRush Core
Containing a huge library of realistic and responsive guitar FX, amps, cabs and microphone emulations, the HeadRush Core provides virtually unlimited impulse response loading, and the ability to capture the sound of your own precious analog gear with ‘smart cloning’ technology. For the singers who need a complementary vocal processing unit, the Core also features a full suite of vocal FX including the industry-standard Antares Auto-Tune® and a best-in-class looper.
Complete guitar and vocal rig
The HeadRush Core includes an ever-expanding library of sounds. These are premium emulations of the most cherished vintage, modern, and boutique guitar gear with unprecedented accuracy and jaw dropping natural dynamic response. It features factory presets assembled by guitar sound designer aficionados ChopTonesTM, and a full suite of great sounding and easy-to-use vocal FX including Antares Auto-Tune®. This library is expanded on a regular basis with firmware updates (available via onboard Wi-Fi connection or USB connection to Mac/PC).
Capture the authentic sound of your own gear
The HeadRush Core features proprietary cloning technology which enables you to greatly expand your onboard amp and FX library using real gear.
The HeadRush Amp Cloner precisely captures the sound, dynamics, and most importantly, feel, of your favorite amps, pre-amps, distortion pedals, overdrive pedals, and even fuzz pedals. Cloning your gear is an extremely fast process, with a simple on-screen wizard guiding you through each step.
Intuitive touch interface with 7-inch touchscreen display
The heart of the HeadRush Core is a 7-inch touch display. Literally touch, swipe, and drag-and-drop to instantly create Guitar, Bass, and Vocal rigs with amazing speed and accuracy. The display also gives clear feedback when performing live, especially when tweaking tones using an external expression pedal in 'Hands-Free Mode'.
Best-in-class looper and practice tools
The HeadRush Core has an intuitive looper that can record loops up to 5 minutes long with 20 minutes of total overdub time; save and recall loops; as well as sync with other gear like drum machines via MIDI.
Another feature is the ability to load songs directly from Dropbox over Wi-Fi so you can practice or learn songs faster. Once a song is loaded, you can loop and slow down tricky sections, as well as change the pitch up or down in semitones to quickly learn songs in new keys. The Core can also connect and play audio from any Bluetooth-enabled mobile device, which opens you up to using many more streaming and digital lesson services.
