Description

We took our Alpha·Omega, and with relentless efforts added all the learned engineering to it. Placing the iconic distortion circuit into a new paradigm enables a range of possibilities that were never before available.

Front Panel Features

Compression

The Compression potentiometer is the one-knob solution for compression on the Alpha·Omega Φoton. This controls the amount of input gain to the compressor and intelligently applies the correct amount of makeup gain so that your signal is always driven at the appropriate level, no matter how much compression is applied.

Drive

The Drive potentiometer adds distortion and drive to our signal (modes 2-4) or blends in the tube preamp emulation (mode 1). Crank this knob to add more saturation or character to your distortion/preamp part of the signal chain.

Mod

The Mod potentiometer selects or mixes between the Alpha and Omega circuits. Alpha is punchy, tight with a lot of definition, whereas Omega is simply brutal and raw.

Blend

The Blend potentiometer mixes between the distortion signal and the clean sidechain signal.

Level

The Level potentiometer controls the master volume of the Alpha·Omega Φoton.

Touch Sensitive Sliders

Each slider has a -12 dB to 12 dB range. From left to right, the frequency bands for each slider correspond to a low shelf, 250 Hz, 500 Hz, 1.5 kHz, 3 kHz, and a high shelf.

Back Panel Features

Input

This is the primary instrument input on the Alpha·Omega Φoton. Connect your instrument or output from your pedal board to the 1/4” mono jack.

Aux In

The stereo input of the Alpha·Omega Φoton enables the playback of backing tracks while practicing or recording. Connect your mobile phone, laptop etc. to the 1/8” stereo jack.

 

Headphone Output

The headphone output can handle headphones with an impedance of 16 – 600 ohms. Connect your headphones to the 1/8” stereo jack and set the desired level from the dedicated potentiometer next to the jack.

Direct Output

An XLR output with a ground lift switch provides a reliable standard connection to a mixing desk or an external audio interface for a guaranteed low-noise signal.

 

MIDI In

A standard 1/8” TRS (Type B) jack allows connecting an external MIDI controller to the Alpha·Omega Φoton for even more flexibility.

 

USB

The USB-C port unlocks the Alpha Omega Φoton’s USB audio interface capabilities and enables interaction with the Darkglass Suite desktop app, allowing for software updates and access to the Darkglass IR library, containing hundreds of cabinet simulations. USB MIDI is also supported.

Balanced Outputs

The two balanced outputs add routing versatility and the option of using the Alpha·Omega Φoton as a fully equipped audio interface. Connect your studio monitors, amplifier or other effects to the 1/4” balanced jacks using a TRS connector (Tip +, Ring -, Sleeve GND). If you feed an unbalanced input from these outputs, use an instrument cable with a mono 1/4” plug.

WARNING

The Alpha·Omega Φoton has a current draw of ~500mA. Only use a regulated 9V DC adapter with a center-negative plug. Unregulated power supplies and/or higher voltages may result in suboptimal noise performance and even damage your unit, voiding the warranty
