The SONUUS Voluum is a volume-based multi-effect stomp box with a digitally controlled high-fidelity pure-analog signal chain. Constant high-voltage (>30V) analog power rails ensure high-headroom with low distortion and low noise for maximum signal clarity. A high-bandwidth fully-analog signal path ensures that there is no digital distortion to corrupt your signal, and allows high dynamic range signals to be processed flawlessly. Digital control gives you the ability to store presets and remotely control the effects via MIDI.
The effects chain comprises five effects-noise gate, compressor, LFO (tremolo), volume control and limiter-which can be used in any combination. Voluum features 30 factory and 100 user presets, a transparent noise gate, a smooth pedal-controlled compressor, and a choice between transparent-true and buffered bypass. A custom-designed patent-pending pedal sensor that, unlike conventional potentiometers, is less susceptible to dirt with no mechanical couplings and provides precision control.
The Voluum has a USB connection and standard 5-pin MIDI connections. Any effect that can be controlled by the pedal can also be controlled by MIDI messages, allowing you to automate effects or remotely control them in real-time. It's simple to tweak settings on the carefully designed control panel. Once you have created what you want, you can save it to one of 100 internal presets.

Transparent True-Bypass Switching with the Option of Buffered-Bypass
With the Voluum, you have control over whether you want to use true-bypass or buffered-bypass. Buffered-bypass keeps the Voluum in the signal path at all times, but passes the input signal without modification when the effect is bypassed. This can be useful when using long cables-the buffered output of the Voluum means these long cables won't affect your tone, even when the effect is bypassed
LFO / Tremolo
In envelope mode, the level change is triggered when you play a new note or strum a new chord. Combined with built-in ADSR shaping, you can create synth-like tones from your instrument

USB & MIDI Interface
USB connection lets you connect Voluum to a computer where the Desktop Editor Software allows visual preset editing and manipulation. Presets can also be saved to and loaded from files for exchange with other Voluum users. Program change messages can also be sent to Voluum to select the effects you need for particular songs
MIDI and USB-MIDI can be used to sync the internal LFO and to automate the effect parameters. The expression pedal also sends MIDI controller messages to drive software instruments and effects. You can also use Voluum as a standard USB-MIDI interface where MIDI data from your computer can be routed to/from the 5-pin MIDI ports
