Introducing the world’s most powerful floorboard amp modeler: the Quad Cortex from Neural DSP. With an ever-evolving library of guitar and bass algorithms, the sonic possibilities are endless!

Available to backorder


Featuring a ludicrous processing capacity thanks to a total of 6 cores, the Quad Cortex is capable of processing up to four instruments simultaneously- each with independent effects chains and outputs. Want to run four amplifier models, stereo reverbs, and a host of other effects simultaneously? Quad Cortex won’t even break a sweat.


  • An ever-evolving collection of highly-realistic sounds: 90+ Amps, 100+ Effects, and 1000+ IRs
  • Huge 7” display and multi-touch sensors for easy use
  • Incredibly powerful and compact
  • Change your signal chain or routing in seconds with drag-and-drop fuctionality
  • Visualize and adjust the controls of inputs and outputs with a single swipe
  • Neural Capture
  • Exclusive stainless steel stomp and rotary controls
  • 4x SHARC+ and 2x ARM cores
  • WiFi module for wireless sharing, backups, updates, and more
  • Rugged anodized aluminium chassis
  • Functions as interface with ultra-low latency USB audio transmission

Unmatched Intuitiveness and Versatility

Incredibly user friendly thanks to a huge 7” display, Quad Cortex allows you to design even the most complex signal paths with ease. Simply drag-and-drop blocks to change the order or routing of your signal chain in an instant, or visualize and control the parameters of inputs and outputs with a single swipe.

Cab Block & EQ

Quad Cortex ships with one of the most comprehensive IR collections in the world, coming equipped with more than 1000 impeccably created impulse responses- and is the only processor of it’s kind that features virtual microphones that you can move around the speaker as if recording in a real studio. Loading third-party IRs is a breeze- making Quad Cortex the most powerful Swiss Army knife of any studio.

Featuring a powerful parametric EQ, Quad Cortex puts complete control right at your fingertips by taking full advantage of the massive 7” touch display to give you a parametric EQ that is both fun and intuitive to use.

Neural Capture

With Neural Capture, you can harness the power and tone of your favourite rigs. Using Neural DSP’s proprietary biometric AI technology, Quad Cortex is able to learn and reproduce every last detail and nuance of any physical amplifier, overdrive, or cabinet- capturing the sonic characteristics with stunning accuracy.

By perceiving sound similar to how a human would, Neural DSP’s sophisticated neural network algorithm is unlike any other, resulting in the most natural and authentic-sounding capture solution on the planet.

By collaborating with some of the world’s most revered producers and sound designers, Neural DSP is able to provide an ever-growing library of free rig captures, in addition to their full-circuit models.

Unbelievably Strong, Impressively Compact

Complete with a striking anodized aluminium housing with laser engraved graphics to last a lifetime, Quad Cortex also boasts a chemically reinforced protective glass, and a strengthened touch sensor panel. Designed to withstand a life of rigorous touring and studio use, Neural DSP employed advanced mechanical design and manufacturing methods to pack the most powerful floor modeler and multi-effects processor into a remarkably compact format.

Cortex Control

Using the Cortex Mobile app for iOS and Android, you’re able to discover Users, Presets and Neural Captures. Create backups, share content, and download items from other users by linking your Quad Cortex to your Neural DSP account, and unlock the massive Impulse Response Library where you can transfer IRs to your Quad Cortex and manage the IRs stored on your account.
