From the KSR Website: The Orthos™ amplifier consists of two channels, each with its own gain, 3-band EQ, various Bright/Voice/Loop assignment switches, and level controls. In addition, the Lead channel features dual Gain controls, one for Master 1 and the other for Master 2.
Clean Channel This channel produces a wonderfully warm tone that aims to be the best of any channel switching amplifier. Where most other high gains amps seem to include a clean channel out of necessity rather than desire, the Orthos™ has a no-compromises clean channel with its own dedicated preamp tube voiced specifically for huge headroom and sparkling cleans. With the included Gain control on the clean channel, one can also dial in a very cool vintage style distortion.
We include a Bright switch for each Master allowing you to add sparkle and clarity to the clean tones. Whichever Master is active determines which switch is used to activate the Bright function.
Dual Loop switches are present on the Clean channel as a way of engaging/bypassing the effects loop for each Master. This allows you to easily engage the Loop automatically for one of the Masters.
Lead Channel The Orthos™ Lead channel is based on our signature high-gain sound that aims to give you one of the most unique, round, warm, yet extremely usable and cutting high gain tones available. The Lead 1 and Lead 2 voicings from the Colossus are both available via the Voice switch. Lead 1 has a nice solid and tight mid voicing that is great for rhythms and leads alike. Lead 2 has a lower mid-point and is favored by most for smooth singing leads.
The Lead channel sound is technically fixed to Colossus Mode On and Fat On. This is one of our most popular high-gain tones, and it made sense to build a stripped-down amp around it. This sound is great for metal and rock alike, depending on the overall Gain and Bright settings.
We include both Bright and Voice switches for each Master allowing you to adjust attack and feel for rhythm and solo tones. Whichever Master is active determines which set of switches is used to activate the Bright and Voice functions.
Dual Loop switches are also present on the Lead channel as a way of engaging/bypassing the effects loop for each Master. This allows you to easily engage the Loop automatically for one/both/neither of the Masters.
