Taurus MULTIDRIVE is an extended version of the Taurus DRIVE effects. The effect is designed with three different distortion sections: OVERDRIVE, DRIVE, HIGH GAIN. Each section is controlled by footswitch , can also be chosen by external controller that can be plug into the pedal. Every section has its own tone, gain and signal level controls. It means that you can adjust the sound and volume of each section individually as you like and switch them while playing.
The tone can be additionally adjusted with the CHARACTER knob. It allows selectively change the sound with a single potentiometer, from a mild dark tone, throughout a nasal and middle bright, up to a MODERN thick, contouring sound.
In addition, there is also a BRIGHT/ DARK two-way switch that emphasizes the timbre or suppresses the high frequencies of sound.
Additionally the Taurus MULTIDRIVE effect possess a MIX feature which allows mixing all channels. Personlized sound can be created by mixing every sections of the effect in any configuration, one of three, two or three sections at the same time can be used. It gives great opportunities to create very own, individual guitar sound.
There is another feature that allows increase sound's high dynamics. This is a CLEAN BLENDER that allows blend the natural, clean sound of the guitar with the distorted signal of the pedal. The signal can be mixed in two ways. Mix of full-bandwidth CLEAN sound or CLEAN sound with a cut-off bandwidth, emphasizing only the PUNCH in the distorted sound, i.e. the feeling of dynamic attack and sound's thickness of the distorted guitar. The Hi-CUT mixing CHARACTER switch is used for this purpose.
DRIVE has been designed so that its dynamics and response to sound articulation are the same as in classic tube amplifiers. If these are important preferences for you, we hope the Taurus MULTIDRIVE will become your favorite tool to complement the sound of your guitar. We are convinced that the MULTIDRIVE has all the necessary features and sound options that a guitarist expects from this type of effects.
3 sound sections:: OVERDRIVE, DRIVE, HIGH GAIN.
MIX – selector allowing mixing any sections together
GAIN - controls the amount of distortion.
LEVEL - adjusting the volume level of each section
CHARACTER - controls the tone of the sound - from warm and smooth to bright and cutting.
PRESENCE - high frequency boost
CLEAN BLENDER – possibility to mix the natural sound of the instrument with the distorted sound.
HI-CUT – a switch that changes the character of the sound, which is mixed using the CLEAN BLENDER control. You can mix the natural signal with the full band or a limited band emphasizing only the mid band, which gives a feeling of dynamics and mass to the guitar sound.
Extelrnal Controller – inputs for connecting an external controller enabling section selection and effect switching off (ON/OFF pulse control).
Zasilanie 9-15V: DC stabilized power supplies in the range from 9V to 15V can be used. Current consumption 50mA.
Autodetekcja polaryzacji napięcia zasilania - allows using either centre-positive or negative polarity on power supply
DC ASSISTANT: protection against signal loss. If disconnected or the voltage is lower then 6V the effect is automatically switched to the "bypass" mode
TRUE-BYPASS - in OFF mode your instrument’s original signal goes through, bypasses all electronic components.
Dimensions: (W x S x G) 50 x 155 x 130mm.
