Cerberus is a multi-function effect pedal which can be used stand-alone or with the 4 cable method
and comes packed with extraordinary features including inside routing, IR loader, analog overdrive
& distortion and digital effects.
We've put together 2 selected analog Drive / Distortion pedals, modulation effects and
delay & reverb effects. All these sounds and effects were improvised both from the all-time-classic
and newly most-liked gears.
Overdrive (Blues Breaker): Cerberus Overdrive sound is a tribute to the 70’s Little Wing / Hendrix
playing-style. The technology is only about 10 years ago but it quickly became one of the
most-preferred overdrive sounds on the market. The Overdrive Channel simply takes your guitar
tone to the next level without adding mid-frequencies or any other unwanted characteristics inherent
in “Tube Screamer Style” circuits, and provides a transparent overdrive sound. Any pedal can sound
amazing but when you create an effect chain, harmonizing the sound is critical for maximum efficiency.
Distortion (Brown Anger): If you prefer high gain distortion with a Classic British flavor,
rich bass responses, thick mid-frequencies and a balanced treble response, Cerberus
Distortion will soon become one of your all-time-favorite sounds.We’ve also considered compatibility
in respect to the Overdrive and Distortion channels. Whether you use distortion standalone or combine
with overdrive, when you hit your distortion switch, you’ll feel the classic JCM touch on your sound.
Drive section has analog circuitry with digital control parameters and it remains analog
(AD/DA converter starts from the MOD FX section).
Tremolo: Cerberus Tremolo creates authentic vintage tremolo guitar sounds and it is an easy-to-use
compact effect but it offers wide parameters for precise effect tailoring.
Phaser: It’s warm, organic, and rarely harsh and burnt-orange phaser. From simple and warm,
to tuneful character melodic?
Sleepy psychedelic swirl, with rich high-end harmonics, Cerberus’s Phaser is a joy to use.
U-vibe: For guitarists who really dig the swirling vibes sound-- especially in "vintage" mode,
Cerberus’s U-Vibe offers
a massive swirl, that’s true, it’s more than “feeling the U-Vibe” sound, you can jump on it.
We made sure our U-Vibe effect included the classic favorites, and Cerberus has them ready
Chorus (CE - Analog, SC - Digital, ST - Modern)
CE Chorus: This chorus type is from early years of Chorus effect. There is no any other vintage
sound without an analog chorus touch.
SC Chorus: SC Chorus adds a dreamy chorus sound and creates an ambient guitar tone.
That’s another alternative chorus if you like a digital touch and to create and ensemble chorus effect.
ST Chorus: This is the most common chorus effect. From clean arpeggios or strumming and fat-drive
power chords to sparkling distortion killer solos, Cerberus ST Chorus fills in the gaps to
complete your sound.
Delay (60’s, 70’s and 80’s)
60’s Delay (Tape Delay) 55ms - 550ms: Tape delay effects that never get old. We picked a
heavy-lift tape echo and shrunk it to add one of the delay modes in Cerberus.
In 60’s Delay mode you can create aged over-saturated repeats -- the way tape does!
70’s Delay (BBD) 40ms - 400ms: This mode can handle all or your performance needs if
you prefer to use analog-style repeats. It has a decreased modulation so you feel
really the popular analog-like BBD sound repeats.
80’s Delay (Digital Delay) 80ms - 800ms: 80’s Delay sounds fantastic is super easy to use.
Its simplicity makes it the best mode if you are already using modulation effects,
and all you want are crystal clear repeats.
All of the Delay effects provide an original sound and each one has its own delay speed range.
When TAP TEMPO is activated, the Time Knob controls the repeat quantize and TAP TEMPO delay
range is 125ms - 1500ms for all delay types. And while you tweak the Time Knob, it still
allows you to have the original delay time range to emerge infinite feedback, run-away/oscillation
as physical tape echo and BBD delay.
Reverb (Plate, Hall and Spring)
Plate Reverb: Plate reverb helps you to have the touch of reverb. If you are in need of a deep
ambiance, long decay parameters will give you the deepest but also versatile and organic reverb sound.
Hall Reverb: It offers the spacious feeling of a well-architected performance hall with natural
reflections in a studio quality reverb effect.
Spring Reverb: Based on a tank sound, get the warmth and richness of a vintage reverb unit
with Cerberus’s Spring Reverb function.

connection to the mixer or your audio interface. When using both Outputs, you can activate or
deactivate by pressing the Speaker Cab Sim button. This comes in handy when running 2 amps.
The headphone output is cabin simulated and ready-to-play.
It can run any 3rd party IR files as well.
