ADAM has a unique distortion engine that blends aggressive distortion with multiband compression for a thick and powerful bass tone. ADAM features two compressors, one at the input and one in parallel with the distortion, which allows for a wide range of available tones.

Compression and distortion can be bypassed independently and both have 5 selectable modes.

The selectable cabinet simulation can use any of 5 onboard IRs. Cab sim can be used with the headphone output, XLR DI output or stereo line outputs.

The footswitches double as rotary potentiometers, allowing you to select among the distortion modes, compression modes and cab sim IRs.
