Guillotine is a true stereo hard clipping distortion in 1U format. Its insane amount of gain can also be used as an instrument adaptor (guitars, basses, microphones…) as it can bring line and mic levels to modular levels. Don’t expect it to be clean though…


  • Too Much Gain? Never heard of that.

    Guillotine is two channels of hard clipping distortion with up to 25dB gain. If you process mono signals you can self patch the module to chain the two channels for 50dB gain. Insane amount of gain guaranteed.

    Guillotine has an internal feedback routing allowing for two distortion colors per channel. The result is similar to a low pass filter, but not quite. The lower position gives emphasis on the low end, the middle position is straight up distortion, with no coloration & the higher position emphasizes on the high frequency content.
