The Expert Features of the AMP1 Iridium Edition are functionalities that individually extend the regular range of functions of the amp. They include the following functions:
Half Power Mode (operating mode with 50 watts output power)
Preset Mode (mode to recall previously stored presets)
Low Gain Mode (mode with reduced gain for vintage freaks)
Individual Channel Gain (setting and saving individual gain value per channel)
FX LOOP on/off (switching the FX loop on/off)
Speaker Simulation on/off (switching the REC OUT's speaker simulation on/off)
In the following we'll explain the basic functions and the benefits of the Expert Features and show you how to activate them. More information, detailed instructions and tutorial videos about the Expert Features of the AMP1 Iridium Edition can be found here: AMP1 Iridium Edition Expert Features
STARTUP MODES: HALF POWER MODE / PRESET MODE / LOW GAIN MODE
Besides the Standard Mode (or Normal Mode) - which is the factory setting - you can start the AMP1 Iridium Edition in different operating modes:
In Half Power Mode the output power of the AMP1 Iridium Edition is reduced to 50 Watts, so you can play a 60W speaker cabinet (e.g. BluGuitar NANOCAB or FATCAB) with full Nanotube saturation. To activate it, press and hold the left foot switch while switching the AMP1 Iridium Edition on.
In Preset Mode the AMP1 Iridium Edition's three foot switches recall previously stored presets that contain settings for CHANNEL, BOOST, REVERB and FX-LOOP ON/OFF. To activate it, press and hold the right foot switch while switching the AMP1 Iridium Edition on.
In Low Gain Mode the gain is reduced on all channels. This makes it possible to realize sounds as known from the "LOW" input of vintage amps. To activate it, press and hold the middle foot switch while switching the AMP1 Iridium Edition on.
INDIVIDUAL CHANNEL GAIN
With the help of the REMOTE1 and depending on the position of the overdrive gain pot on the AMP1 Iridium Edition, you can reduce the gain for each channel individually. To do this, first connect the REMOTE1 to the AMP1 Iridium Edition. Then select a channel on the REMOTE1 and set the desired maximum gain: Press and hold BOOST on the REMOTE1 until the switch starts flashing. Now you can set the desired maximum gain with the rotary knob on the REMOTE1. To store this value in the AMP1 Iridium Edition, hold down the middle foot switch on the AMP1 for three seconds and then confirm with the right foot switch.
SPEAKER SIMULATION ON/OFF
If you want to use your own speaker simulation (e.g. using an IR loader or IRs coming from plugins in your DAW), you can switch off the internal speaker simulation of the AMP1 Iridium Edition. To do so, make sure that the AMP1 Iridium Edition is in normal mode and that neither REMOTE1 nor MIDI1 is connected to the footswitch jack. Hold down the middle foot switch. Once it blinks, you can use the left foot switch to toggle between SPEAKER SIMULATION ON and OFF while still holding down the middle foot switch. This is a global setting that will remain even after restarting the unit.
In a MIDI setup using the MIDI1 adapter, the AMP1 Iridium Edition's FX loop can be switched on and off via Control Change command. If your MIDI setup cannot send Control Changes, or if you are not using MIDI at all, you can switch the FX loop on the AMP1 Iridium Edition directly. To do so, remove the MIDI1 adapter (if necessary), press and hold down the middle foot switch for 3 seconds and use the right foot switch to toggle between FX-LOOP ON and OFF. You can then either use MIDI LEARN to store the current status of the FX loop in a MIDI preset (please reconnect MIDI1 for this!) or store to a preset on one of the three internal foot switches of the AMP1 Iridium Edition.
