The Darkglass Aggressively Distorting Advanced Machine is the result of a collaboration with one of the most celebrated artists in today’s metal scene - Adam "Nolly" Getgood. This pedal captures Nolly’s entire tonal arsenal meticulously refined by years of in-depth testing and experience in one striking enclosure.
There are three fully programmable rotating footswitch presets. Each of these stores your unique blend of compression, distortion, impulse responses, EQ parameters, and signal chain settings. Featuring a unique and innovative top-notch precision touch slider interface, for its 6-band programmable EQ.
It also incorporates a USB-C audio interface and balanced stereo outputs for studio monitors and is equipped with an extra accurate chromatic tuner, that also works well with down-tuned guitars and basses.
Compression: Controls the amount of input gain to the compressor and intelligently applies the correct amount of makeup gain so that your signal is always driven at the appropriate level, no matter how much compression is applied
Drive: Adds distortion and drive to your signal, crank this knob to apply Nolly’s favorite vintage distortion to the distorted part of the signal chain
Character: Changes the tone of the distortion, adding brightness to the distortion signal
Blend: Mixes between the distortion signal and the clean sidechain signal
Level: Controls the master volume of ADAM
Touch Sensitive Sliders: Each slider has a -12 dB to 12 dB range - from left to right, the frequency bands for each slider correspond to a low shelf, 250 Hz, 500 Hz, 1.5 kHz, 3 kHz, and a high shelf
Input: This is the primary instrument input on ADAM - connect your instrument or output from your pedal board to the 1/4" mono jack
Aux In: The stereo input of ADAM enables the playback of backing tracks while practicing or recording - connect your mobile phone, laptop etc. to the 1/8" stereo jack
Headphone Output: The headphone output can handle headphones with an impedance of 16 - 600 ohms - connect your headphones to the 1/8" stereo jack and set the desired level from the dedicated potentiometer next to the jack
Balanced Outputs: The two balanced outputs add routing versatility and the option of using ADAM as a fully equipped audio interface
Direct Output: An XLR output with a ground lift switch provides a reliable standard connection to a mixing desk or an external audio interface for a guaranteed low-noise signal
MIDI In: A standard 1/8" TRS jack allows connecting an external MIDI controller to ADAM for even more flexibility
USB: The USB-C port unlocks ADAM’s USB audio interface capabilities and enables interaction with the Darkglass Suite desktop app, allowing for software updates and access to the Darkglass IR library, containing hundreds of cabinet simulations

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!
I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!
In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.
This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.
Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.
You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!
I would recommend Vintage King to any one looking for top-class gear, unbeatable customer service and the best prices on the map!
My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
Thanks for your great service and getting this out today. You guys really are the Kings!
Better than expected! Truly impeccable service. Your team was professional, knowledgeable, provided speedy delivery above and beyond standard. Vintage King Audio is definitely my go to for all of my audio and information needs.
