Beat-synced filter effects
AdrenaLinn III’s Beat-Synched Filter Modulation effects give you the classic modulation effects you know and love like tremolo, flanging, filter sweeps, vibrato, rotary speaker and auto-pan, but moving in perfect synch to its drumbeats or MIDI clock. No longer will you need to hope your tremolo stays in synch to your track, or try to make your flanger reach the top of its cycle when you want it to. With AdrenaLinn III, you simply select a tempo-based speed value – 1/8 notes, 1/8 note triplets, 1/16 notes, anything from every 8 measures to 1/32 note triplets – and AdrenaLinn III keeps perfect synch. But the real fun comes with AdrenaLinn III’s new and unique modulation effects like Random Filter, Random Flanging and Random Tremolo, Filter Tremolo, Pulse Tremolo, Sawtooth Tremolo, Sawtooth Filter Tremolo, Hard-Switched Auto Pan and much, much more.
Beat-synced audio delay
Like the Beat-Synched Filter Modulation effects, AdrenaLinn III provides a Beat-Synched Audio Delay. Simply select a tempo-based delay setting–1/4 notes, dotted 1/8 notes, anything from 2 measures up to 1/32 note triplets–and the delay signal plays in perfect synch to the internal drumbeats or MIDI Clock. Set it to 1 or 2 measures (up to 2.8 seconds of delay) for our unique Delay Loops, which allow you to play chords on one bar, solo over them on the next bar as they play back , play new chords on the next bar over the last bar’s solo, and on and on. A great inspirational tool.
40 great modeled amp sounds
AdrenaLinn III provides 40 accurate models of classic and modern guitar amps, as well as a few bass amps, 2 distortion boxes and even a tube mic preamp. With new enhancements for tube saturation simulation, the guitar amps modeled include Fender, Marshall, Vox, Mesa Boogie, Roland, Hiwatt, Soldano, Bogner, Deizel, Budda, Matchless, ENGL plus a number of custom Roger Linn Design amps for the more radical tones. Four bass amps are included from Acoustic, Ampeg, Gallien-Krueger and SWR. We also include Fuzz Tone and Octave Fuzz, as well as a simulated tube clean preamp for mic recording and full-frequency direct guitar tones.
Drum machine and more onboard
A great-sounding–and great-feeling–drum machine is included with 200 user-programmable drumbeats and over 40 sampled sounds. Two degrees of swing permit very natural-sounding grooves. Factory beats include Rock/Pop, 1/16 Note Grooves, Swing Grooves, Triplet Feels, Hip Hop, Electronica/Techno/Dance, World/Brazilian/Reggae/Latin, Jazz, Simple Counts and Processed Beats. Sounds include 9 kicks, 9 snare, 6 hihats, toms, ride, shaker, tambourine, congas, claps, triangle and cowbell. An additional simple guitar amp distortion simulator–independent of the amp models–provides great lo-fi sounds, and the drumbeats can also be routed through the reverb, delay or the entire guitar effects signal path for incredible-sounding processed beats. A stereo-output reverb adds depth and fullness, the compressor adds sustain and is great for evening out the level of resonant modulated filter peaks, the Noise Gate has a flawless transparency with natural note decay, and the tuner rejects hum and noise to keep you in tune during live performance.

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07VBVuW_rmQ?list=PLF5819135258C2717&showinfo=0]Select one of the 200 presets, play simple chords or arpeggios in time to one of the drumbeats, and listen as AdrenaLinn III transforms them into looped rhythmic patterns of spiked, swooped, swirled, chopped and mangled tonal variations, inspiring you to new and unexpected compositional ideas. Or simply use a tremolo, flanger or delay that moves in perfect sync to the beat. All the modulation effects you know and love now sync to you. The built-in compression keeps the filter peaks in check, and reverb tops it off.
A Modular Synthesizer where you are the Oscillator
Inside AdrenaLinn III are the elements of a modular synthesizer– various filters, an LFO, a digital VCA, step sequencer, note-triggered envelope genrator, envelope follower and more–that you can connect together to create effects. But instead of an oscillator to generate the sound source, that’s your job.
40 Superb Guitar Amp Models
Ever since Hendrix’s wah-wah and Marshalls, filters and distortion have had a very special relationship. But a wah sounds different with a Fender than with a Marshall, so we give you 40 faithful reproductions of the greatest guitar amps, providing everything from sweet, bell-like tones to extreme high-gain distortion. Of course, they sound incredible even on their own.
Programmable Drum Machine

Or turn the beats off and hear the effects sync to your track, syncing to your computer recording software via Midi.

AdrenaLinn on Tour with John Mayer
John Mayer has been very good to us, using AdrenaLinns on three of his hits.
Here are photos of John’s FX rack and FX pedalboard. Notice than John uses AdrenaLinn I, II and III in his effects setup:
• AdrenaLinn, for “Bigger Than My Body”
• AdrenaLinn II, for “I Can’t Stop Myself”
• AdrenaLinn III, for “Heartbreak Warfare”
Of course he could use a single AdrenaLinn III to create all of these sounds, but it’s nice to see that he values all three products.
