Analogue Overdrive and Distortion

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 flavour, rich bass responses, thick mid-frequencies and a balanced treble response, Cerberus Distortion will soon become one of your all-time-favourite 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 analogue circuitry with digital control parameters and it remains analogue (AD/DA converter starts from the MOD FX section).

Modulation Effects

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 favourites, 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 analogue 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 analogue-style repeats. It has a decreased modulation so you feel really the popular analogue-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.

Impulse Response (IR) Loader

Cerberus has stereo outputs: one is a dedicated Output with speaker simulation for direct 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.
