The Architect of Reality is a dual channel preamp pedal with the ability to mix the low and high gain channel together in the AOR mode for more tone tweaking ability with both channels on independent footswitches. It’s powered internally at 36v+ (9v boss style used) for more headroom and amp-like sensitivity.
The control panel on the Architect of Reality follows the same layout as most modern amps with and overall Presence, Bass, Mid and Treble, but for build cost and durability the pull boosts (of that 80’s classic amp) for each EQ band have been placed on toggle switches. In the first channel you control the Master Volume and Preamp Gain with a heavy crunch and rock feel like your favorite Heavy Rock classics with the feel of a familiar 800 build amp. Engaging the 2nd channel on the pedal pulls the AOR channel on the original amp and gives you the option of blending its gain with the first Preamp Gain for an over-the-top beast that can be tight for Thrash and Heavy Metal to the darker side of gain and sitting in the Doom and Stoner Metal territory
