Two amps to cabinet

    

      You are a musician and you are looking for a compact solution for switching between your two amplifiers to a single guitar cabinet? You are looking for a compact device which can work with both solid-state and tube amps without altering the tone? You want a device which allows you to quickly and easily switch amps by a footswitch on your pedal board or by a MIDI controller. N-audio two amps to cabinet is your best solution!

 

     N-audio Two amps to cabinet is a flexible set of two or three devices. You can get your MONO set of one Amp switcher and one footcontoller to control two amps, or you can buy a STEREO version, including two Amp switchers and one footcontroller. 


This device
is a smart commutation system with several capabilities with its main function being switching between two amps connected to a single speaker cabinet. Switching is done by a footswitch or via an external MIDI controller. The connection between the foot controller and the control unit is achieved with a standard ¼” mono guitar cable – no custom cables! Commutation is build up with high quality gold plated relays to avoid tone alteration. Both inputs and outputs are electrically isolated from each other to eliminate ground loops. The device has built-in protection, specially designed to work with tube amps. The foot controller is equipped with two outputs to control one or two control units.

 

N-audio two amps to cabinet is a flexible commutation system and here is a list of some of its capabilities:

Switching between two guitar amplifiers connected to a single cabinet - MONO version

Switching between two guitar amplifiers connected to a single cabinet - STEREO version

Or

Switching between two guitar cabinets connected to a single amplifier

Switching between two guitar combos

Switching between two effects loop chains

Using N-audio two amps to a cabinet:
     Place the control unit close to the amplifiers or even on top of them
, to prevent long cable runs. In order to connect the inputs of the foot controller, use standard mono guitar cables and speaker cables for the outputs of the amplifiers and the guitar cabinet. The whole system is powered by the foot controller by a standard center negative BOSS style 9-12VDC adapter. Switching between the two amps is achieved by a footswitch or via MIDI. When the footswitch is activated, the two channels – A and B – are switched one after the other. Together with this you can switch channels from your MIDI controller.  WARNING If one or two tube amps are used, thе selected impendance on the outputs must be same as the cabinet's impedance!

Here are few examples:


MIDI programming:
     N
-Audio two amps to a cabinet is an intelligent device which receives the MIDI data and saves it to a given preset. Unlike many other MIDI devices, when using N-Audio two amps to a cabinet you dont need to know and understand how MIDI worksMIDI channels, MIDI notes, control changes, etc.

 

MIDI programming itself is very quick and easy. All you have to do is follow these steps:

  1. Connect the MIDI Out cable of your MIDI controller to the MIDI In of N-Audio two amps to a cabinet
  2. Select one of the two active modes - Amp A or Amp B – of N-audio two amps to a cabinet
  3. Press and hold MIDI LEARN button for about two seconds until it lights up. This indicates the device is ready to receive MIDI data.
  4. Choose and press a button/footswitch or expression on your MIDI controller.

Done! You have already programmed one of the two modes of N-Audio two amps to a cabinet. Switch to the other mode and program it following the same steps.
When programming a previously programmed mode the device automatically overwrites the new MIDI data and deletes the previous ones.
If
you wish to delete existing MIDI control data: press MIDI LEARN button while the device is powered off and switch it back on while still holding the button. Wait a few seconds until LEARN stops blinking.

Maximum power rating:
Maximum power rating depends on your amplifier's maximum power and the speaker cabinet's impedance. N-audio two amps to cabinet works with all 100W heads. You can use up to 200W amplifier but with minimum speaker impedance of 8 Ohm (i.e. 8 or 16 Ohm). For example it's not recommended to use a 200W amplifier with 2 or 4 ohm speakers.
