Integrating OPUS into your Pedalboard Rig

Integrating OPUS into your Pedalboard Rig

Make OPUS the beating heart of your pedalboard. Its stellar front- and rear-loading capability, in tandem with your pre- and post-amp pedal collection, delivers the ultimate ‘go-anywhere’ fly-rig!

 

First, position OPUS after any drive and distortion pedals; note, this should also include boost pedals, Wah Pedals and any Modulation FX. For this connection, please connect the last pedal in your chain to the AMP/INST/LINE IN input of OPUS.

Next, place any mono or stereo spatial effects (inclusive of Reverb, Delay and post-amp Modulation FX) after OPUS by connecting these to either the DI OUT or LINE OUT. Note, prior to configuring your pedals in this manner, please ensure your selected FX can accept a line level input by consulting the respective manufacturer’s user guides.

OPUS' effects will not be heard through the physical cabinet connected to the SPEAKER OUT. Send your exact full guitar tone with our class-leading DynIR Cabinet Emulation by connecting OPUS' DI XLR output to the input of your audio interface or a mixing desk.

For optimal results, we suggest setting the “IN LEVEL” switch at LINE, which is 0dB. It is possible to boost the input and use the INST setting, which may cause some artefact floor noise due to the input gain being increased.
