The Beast is named for its sound. The discrete op-amp distortion is a true monster. Depending on the gain setting, the dirt section can morph between an open and aggressive distortion into a tight gated fuzz. The big muff style tone control paired with a variable mid scoop control can tailor the tone of the dirt section to whatever your heart desires. There is also a boosted clean channel that can mix with the dirt signal to add more low end with bass or more clarity with guitar. The clean channel resembles the clean channel of a tube amp, so with the boost engaged even that can become distorted! The boost section can pummel the main dirt section into tomorrow with over 20dB of gain on tap! The boost also has a mixable octave up, which is perfect for lead lines and solos. The Beast is a one stop shop for all your distortion and fuzzy needs.

Tone: Cuts high and low content depending on its position.
Scoop: Changes the mid scoop of the tone control. Goes from heavily scooped mids, to a flattened mid response.
Dirt: Controls dirt volume.

Octave: Varies the amount of octave up in the boost signal.
Boost: Controls boost volume.
Order: Controls the order of the dirt and boost sections. In the right position, the boost comes first in the chain.
