The Incredible Alpha-Omega Pedal Meets Enhanced Versatility

For many bassists, the Darkglass Alpha-Omega pedal represents the pinnacle of modern bass tone. With the Alpha-Omega Photon, you can channel that sound in an optimized format with enhanced flexibility. By taking a few cues from the Darkglass Aggressively Distorting Advanced Machine, the Alpha-Omega Photon forgoes the original layout for streamlined knobs and touch-sensitive EQ settings. Under the hood, you get five different distortion and compression modes to explore, with a 6-band graphic equalizer to tweak your tone to taste. When it comes time to hit the road, built-in cabinet sim IRs let you leave the heavy cabs at home, which is ideal when needing a fly rig for last-second gigs and practice sessions. Hook the Alpha-Omega up to your Mac or PC via USB-C, and this pedal turns into a formidable audio interface for quick and easy tracking. Complete with an aux-in and a headphone output for private practice sessions and even Bluetooth audio streaming, the Darkglass Alpha-Omega Photon Bass Distortion/Compression Pedal rightly earns its place in any discerning bass player's rig.

 

Wide-ranging bass tones with 10 unique modes and 6-band EQ

Though sized to fit comfortably on your pedalboard, the Alpha-Omega Photon pumps out massive tone with ease. To accomplish this, Darkglass equipped it with five independent distortion and compression modes, letting you mix and match modes from each side to nail whatever sound you seek. Once you lock in those modes, a touch-sensitive 6-band graphic EQ makes it a breeze to adjust frequencies — this one-stop solution for crafting sounds is something Sweetwater bassists thoroughly appreciate when streamlining their gigging boards. Throw the Alpha-Omega Photon in your rig and prepare to journey through an endless world of bass tones!

 

Built-in USB audio interface for easy recording

With its built-in USB audio interface, the Alpha-Omega Photon is an easy way to connect to your DAW software to record song ideas or add your part to a shared project. The USB-C connectivity also allows you to connect with the Darkglass Suite app for added control options as well as Bluetooth audio streaming. With its ability to excel in so many useful applications, the Alpha-Omega Photon is highly recommended to any bass player.
