ULTRAROC GX110
1. INTRODUCTION
Thank you very much for expressing your confidence in BEHRINGER products by purchasing the ULTRAROC
GX110. With the ULTRAROC, you have acquired a modern Guitar Workstation that sets new standards in
practice amp engineering. When developing the GX110, our top objective was to reproduce the authentic
sound of classical guitar amps as perfectly as we could and combine it with latest DSP technology – while
focusing on an user interface that can be operated intuitively.
BEHRINGER is an audio engineering company that has been successfully developing products for studio and
live applications for many years now. Our range of products includes microphones and a variety of 19" devices
(compressors, enhancers, gates, tube processors, headphone amps, digital effects devices, DI boxes, etc.)
as well as various monitoring and P.A. speakers plus professional live and recording consoles. The name of
BEHRINGER stands for no-compromise quality, fully-featured products and exemplary service – even years
after purchase – as well as sensationally low prices, which allow any ambitious music lovers to make their
musical dreams come true.
We also set great store by flexibility, which has become a particularly important factor in the music business
over the past few years. Modern guitarists need to offer a broad range of sounds, but should still be able to
play in different kinds of applications at short notice: home recording, studio, live concerts. For this reason, it
has always been our prime concern to give you a Guitar Workstation that offers you a complete set of
functions, but can still be operated intuitively and quickly – no matter what kind of style you play.
Unfortunately, conventional guitar amps are often not fully designed and developed. Moreover, many manufacturers
of traditional-style guitar amps are somewhat afraid of using state-of-the-art technology. The ULTRAROC, on
the other hand, is a pioneering guitar amp that has considerably more functions than any conventional 2-channel
amp with a built-in spring reverb. Still, you can use the GX110 so that it mimics an excellently sounding
2-channel combo amp with an – admittedly – good spring reverb (except for that “shatter” sound when the amp
gets knocked over). However, we recommend that you make yourself familiar with the ULTRAROC in full detail,
so that you know what each of the many functions does and be able to fully exploit the numerous effects and
control options provided.
As technology advances, you’ve got to keep track of latest technological breakthroughs to avoid falling by the
wayside. We, too, have continuously improved this amp and included many of your valuable suggestions. We
have spared neither expense nor effort to test different types of circuitry and speakers until the results gave
us complete satisfaction. After all, we really want to give you fully designed and developed products that meet
your expectations in every respect. The ULTRAROC shall be an useful tool for years to come, which is why
we’ve equipped the effects modules of our Guitar Workstation with EPROMS that can be updated. In this way,
we can keep working on new algorithms and considering your ideas and suggestions. The resulting software
updates will be made available for free on the Internet, so as to ensure that your amp will never be outdated.
We’ve packed our entire experience into this latest generation of guitar amps. Many people contributed to this
project of intense development: studio musicians, collectors of vintage guitar amps, music and guitar lovers
alike. We even invited guitar amp tuning experts to help us develop an amplifier that gives you the best of all
worlds:
s Sophisticated analog technology with a “feel factor” only analog technology can provide.
s The perfect emulation of tube-specific nuances to make up for the drawbacks encountered in tube designs
(noise, hum, etc.)
s Latest DSP technology to give you a broad range of modern high-gain and vintage-type effect sounds.
s Rugged and solid construction which even withstands roughest handling.
I Intuitive operation, so that you can focus your mind on what is most important to you: your music!

This manual first describes the terminology used, so that you can fully understand the
ULTRAROC and its functions. Please read the manual carefully and keep it for future reference.
1. INTRODUCTION
ULTRAROC GX110
1.1 The design concept
The philosophy behind BEHRINGER products guarantees a no-compromise circuit design and employs the
best choice of components. The operational amplifiers used in the ULTRAROC are exceptional: they boast
extreme linearity and very low distortion characteristics. To complement this design, the choice of components
includes low-tolerance resistors and capacitors, high-quality potentiometers and several other stringently selected
elements.
The ULTRAROC uses SMD technology (Surface Mounted Device). These subminiature components adapted
from aerospace technology allow for an extreme packing density to further improve the overall reliability.
The super-robust steel-plate enclosure of your ULTRAROC, with its generously dimensioned power supply,
ensures that your GX110 will never fail on the stage – even when the going gets tough. The enclosure is made
of high-grade and non-polluting MDF wood, which consists of multiple tongued layers.
1.1.1 VIRTUBE technology
Tube preamps usually have three to five triode stages in series producing various degrees of distortion,
dynamic compression and frequency response modification. In addition to the characteristic curve, along
which the signal is distorted, also the order of filters and distortion stages play a vital role. While clean and
slightly distorted sounds may be a pleasure to hear when the signal has lots of bass prior to the distortion
stage, this configuration would lead to a muddy, fuzz-like sound when hi-gain settings are used. For this
reason, tube amps have passive, and usually simple filters switched between the individual amplifier stages.
These filters determine which frequencies contribute to the distorted sound.
After the distortion stages, too, filter circuits are used to provide a perfect blend of output signal and generated
harmonics. Our VIRTUBE circuits have been optimized to mimic this sophisticated interaction with solid-state
components. EQ and filters between the single stages are the same as those used in classical tube amps. The
non-linear characteristic curves are simulated by means of specific diode types. The result is an amplifier
that gives you sounds with a very pronounced tube character.
1.1.2 JENSEN loudspeaker
Since Peter Jensen produced the first loudspeakers in 1923 JENSEN reshaped the communications industry.
As the demand for new electric guitar and bass amplifiers increased, so did the need for JENSEN speakers
in the 50’s and 60’s. JENSEN represented the worldwide industry standard for speaker products and their
sound was in fact the sound of Rock ´n´ Roll. Still these vintage speakers are highly valued by top musicians
and collectors around the world. Famous american and british brands choose JENSENs for their top-of-theline products. There is no doubt about the tremendous impact the loudspeaker has on the sound of electric
guitar amplifiers. Consequently, JENSEN has put into production those legendary speakers again that
contributed so much to the history of modern music, using the most sophisticated and modern facilities
Europe has to offer. You will find them in top-of-of-the-line guitar amps.
1.2 Before you begin
Your BEHRINGER ULTRAROC was carefully packed in the factory and the packaging is designed to protect
the unit from rough handling. Nevertheless, we recommend that you carefully examine the packaging and its
contents for any signs of physical damage, which may have occurred during transit.
+
If the unit is damaged, please do not return it to BEHRINGER, but notify your dealer and the
shipping company immediately, otherwise claims for damage or replacement may not be granted.
Shipping claims must be made by the consignee.
Be sure that there is enough space around the unit for cooling and please do not place the ULTRAROC on high
temperature devices such as radiators etc. to avoid overheating.
+
Before you connect your ULTRAROC to the mains, please make sure that your local voltage
matches the voltage required by the unit!
1. INTRODUCTION
7
ULTRAROC GX110
The mains connection of the GX110 is made by using the enclosed mains cable and a standard IEC receptacle.
It meets all of the international safety certification requirements.
+
Please make sure that all units have a proper ground connection. For your own safety, never
remove or disable the ground conductor of the unit or of the AC power cable.
The MIDI connection (IN) is made over standardized DIN plug-in connectors. An optocoupler has been used
for isolated data communications.
You will find additional information in chapter 5 “INSTALLATION”.
1.3 Control elements
Fig. 1.1: The front panel of the ULTRAROC
The BEHRINGER ULTRAROC GX110 features nine controls, two push-buttons and one 2-digit, 7-segment
LED display on its front panel. Additionally, there is one 1/4" jack for input.
1.3.1 The front panel
Fig. 1.2: The front panel control elements
1
INPUT is the ULTRAROC’s 1/4" jack input for your guitar. Use a commercial 1/4" jack mono cable (no
DIY, better ask your specialized dealer), with good mechanical and electrical shielding, so as to avoid
unpleasant surprises during rehearsals or concerts.
2
The CLEAN VOLUME control sets the volume for the clean channel.
3
The CHANNEL button allows you to toggle between the CLEAN and OVERDRIVE channels. When
OVERDRIVE is on, the corresponding LED lights up.
4
The GAIN control determines the degree of distortion in the OVERDRIVE channel.
5
The VOLUME control sets the volume for the OVERDRIVE channel.
+
6
8
Use both VOLUME controls to optimize the volume ratio of the two channels, so that no volume
differences can be heard when switching from one channel to the other. This setting is also
effective on the level-dependent digital effects!
The BASS control in the EQ section allows you to boost or cut the bass frequencies.
1. INTRODUCTION
ULTRAROC GX110
7
With the MID control you can boost/cut the midrange frequencies.
8
The TREBLE control governs the upper frequency range.
+
9
Please note that with all three EQ controls set fully to the left, there will be no signal sent to the
speaker, which is due to the classical and extremely efficient EQ circuit used in the ULTRAROC.
Use the EFFECT button to activate/deactivate the selected effect.
10
The FX MIX control determines the ratio of original vs. effect signal.
11
The EFFECTS control allows you to select an effects preset from 1 through 99. The selected preset will
be loaded approximately 1 sec after releasing the control.
12
The DISPLAY reads either the program number of the selected preset or the value of the parameter
selected with the FX MIX control.
+
13
s
+
When you start editing a preset, the decimal point in the 2-digit display starts flashing. Press
the EFFECT button for a while to overwrite the factory preset and save your own effect setting.
To restore the factory presets, simply keep the EFFECT button pressed while you switch on
your ULTRAROC.
The MASTER control determines the overall and headphones volume level of your ULTRAROC.
MIDI: You can control your ULTRAROC via MIDI. To select the MIDI receive channel on the ULTRAROC,
press and keep the EFFECT and CHANNEL buttons for about 1 sec. Then, use the EFFECTS control
to select the MIDI channel of your choice (1 through 16, “On” = Omni; “OF” = Off). Confirm your selection
with the EFFECTS button. “OF” means that all MIDI functions are off. While you select the MIDI receive
channel, the display flashes. The decimal point in the DISPLAY flashes as soon as MIDI data are being
received.
When the MIDI functions are inactive, one effect can be stored for each of the two channels on
your ULTRAROC, which allows, for instance, to select a DELAY effect for the OVERDRIVE channel
and assign a REVERB/CHORUS effect to the CLEAN channel. The corresponding program
numbers will be stored with the channels and can be recalled using the footswitch or the front
panel buttons. When MIDI is on, this assignment feature will be disabled, so that in this mode
both channels and effects can be selected separately.
1.3.2 The rear panel

FUSE HOLDER/VOLTAGE SELECTOR. Please make sure that the voltage indicated on the unit,
matches your local voltage, before you attempt to connect and operate the ULTRAROC GX110. Blown
fuses may only be replaced by fuses of the same type and rating. Some models allow for inserting the
fuse holder in two different positions, in order to switch over from 230 V to 115 V operation, and vice
versa. Please note that for 115 V operation outside Europe, you need to use a fuse of a higher rating
(see chapter 5 “INSTALLATION”).
16
Use the enclosed power cord to connect the unit to the mains.
17
MIDI IN. This connector gives you MIDI remote control over your ULTRAROC. You can change parameters
using controller information, switch over effect programs, change channels and bypass the effects
module by means of program change instructions.
18
SERIAL NUMBER. Please take the time to have the warranty card filled out completely by your
specialized dealer, and return it within 14 days after the date of purchase, so as to be entitled to benefit
from our extended warranty.
19
Use the LOUDSPEAKER jack to connect a supplementary speaker to your ULTRAROC. Optimum
adaptation is ensured with 8 Ω speakers. Inserting a plug into this jack will mute the built-in speaker.
20
The 1/4" jack PHONES allows you to monitor the ULTRAROC’s audio signal with a pair of commercially
available headphones. Connecting the headphones will mute the built-in speaker.
+
Since speakers can have quite an impact on the sound of a guitar amp, both the headphones
and LINE OUT signals are frequency-corrected (Speaker Emulation). Without this frequency
correction extreme treble frequencies would deteriorate the sound. You can still tap the
unprocessed signal directly after the pre-amp (INSERT SEND jack), without interrupting the
signal path in the amplifier (INSERT RETURN jack may not be used in this case). Starting with
a certain volume level, low-impedance headphones may begin to produce distortion. In such
a case, please reduce the volume by turning down the VOLUME controls.
21
The AUX TRIM control determines the volume of AUX signals fed into the ULTRAROC via the AUX IN
jacks on the rear (e.g. drum computer, playback).
22
The LINE OUT provides the ULTRAROC’s audio signal, for example, to send it to a recording machine.
This output is frequency-corrected (Speaker Emulation).
23
The AUX IN allows you to feed in additional signals, for example, to play with a drum computer or some
sort of playback. Additionally, you can use the AUX IN in combination with the INSERT SEND as a
parallel effect path: connect the INSERT SEND to the input and the AUX IN to the output of the effects
device (INSERT RETURN jack should not be used in this case!). Thus, the signal path in the amplifier
will not be interrupted and you can add the effect portion from the external device, using the AUX TRIM
control. Please note that the external effects device must be set to 100% wet for this purpose.
+
+
When you connect the INSERT SEND to the AUX IN using a short patch cord, you can add the
direct signal to the effect signal via analog circuitry. Advantage: The direct signal will be
provided all the time, even while the DSP is loading a new effects program. However, it
should be noted that all FX mixes in the presets should be set to higher values, so as to make
the effect signal heard.
Since the entire signal processing circuitry in the ULTRAROC is configured in mono, both the
LINE OUT and the headphones output provide the same signal on both (stereo) sides.
24
The ULTRAROC also features a serial insert path for external effects such as a compressor or wah-wah
pedal. This is the INSERT SEND jack you need to connect to the input of the effects device.
25
This is the INSERT RETURN jack that can be connected to the output of an external effects device.
+
26
10
Please note that when using the serial effects path, the external effect should not be set to
100% wet (100% effect signal); otherwise, there will be no direct signal portion fed back to the
ULTRAROC.
Connect the enclosed footswitch via its stereo plug to the FOOTSWITCH jack. The footswitch allows
you to change channels or disable the effects module.
1. INTRODUCTION
ULTRAROC GX110
2. WIRING EXAMPLES
2.1 Standard setup consisting of guitar, footswitch and external effects device
To use your ULTRAROC for rehearsals or on stage, please wire up the unit as shown in fig. 2.1. Of course, you
can also use a wah-wah or other pedal effect instead of the external 19" effects unit, or simply work with the
internal effects without having to use the insert path at all. Connecting the headphones will mute the built-in
speaker.
When you wish to use a guitar tuner, please connect it to the INSERT SEND of your ULTRAROC. If there is no
further effects device connected, you can leave the INSERT RETURN as it is. However, to use an external
effects device, place the tuner before the effects in the signal chain, so that it works on unprocessed signals
only.
Fig. 2.1: Standard setup
2.2 Expanded setup with MIDI foot controller, playback source and mixing console
To use your ULTRAROC for advanced applications, please consider the following suggestions. Of course, the
expanded configuration suggested in fig. 2.2. builds on the standard setup described in chapter 2.1.
Use the MIDI foot controller to change presets and/or channels, set volume and wah, etc. The line out signal
can be fed into a P.A. or recording console, and the AUX input can be used to play back e.g. cassette recorder
signals through the GX110.

3. EFFECTS PROCESSOR
A very special feature of your ULTRAROC is its built-in effects processor, which offers the same audio quality
and algorithms as our popular 19" effects devices VIRTUALIZER PRO and MODULIZER PRO, however, here
completely in mono. This effects module provides 31 different groups of first-class effects such as Reverb,
Chorus, Flanger, Delay, Pitch Shifter, Compressor, Expander, Wah-Wah variations, various combination effects
and even Tube and Speaker Emulation. The latter, in particular, can make a guitarist’s life much easier in home
recording studios, because they allow you to record the amp’s signal without having to use a microphone. A
total of 99 presets gives you a broad range of versatile effects, which can be edited in one parameter each. The
FX MIX control determines (with a few exceptions) the mix of original and effect signals. As a rule of thumb,
values (adjustable in steps of 2%) between 20% (moderate effect) and 40% (clearly audible effect) should
deliver good results. In the case of Reverb and Delay presets, the mix ratio is adjustable from 0% through 50%
in steps of 1%. Additionally, the multi-effects processor provides different effects variations, which are permanently
linked to the presets. The FX MIX setting can be stored with each preset. To restore the factory default
settings, simply keep the EFFECT button pressed while you power up the ULTRAROC.
Use the EFFECTS control to select a preset which will be activated after a short delay. The display reads the
number of the currently active preset. As soon as you edit a preset with the FX MIX control, the display will
read the respective parameter value. After about three seconds the display switches back to the program
number. Whenever a parameter has been changed, the decimal point in the 2-digit display starts flashing. To
save your edits and overwrite the existing preset, simply press the EFFECT button for about two seconds.
3.1 Description of effects
01-02 Spring Reverb: Even a guitar amp with a digital multi-effects processor should allow you to use a
spring reverb. This algorithm emulates the typical sound of a spring reverb, as it is known from numerous
guitar amps. However, here you don’t have the typical shatter sound when your amp gets knocked
over.
03-04 Studio: This effect simulates the characteristics of middle-sized rooms. With its natural sound it can
be used for a great variety of applications.
12
3. EFFECTS PROCESSOR
ULTRAROC GX110
05-06 Chamber: You can clearly hear the sound as it bounces back from the walls of this “room”. The
program is particularly suited for diffuse types of reverb or to make a dry guitar sound more natural.
07-08 Stage: A fine reverb e.g. to liven up and widen a clean guitar.
09-10 Concert: Here, you can choose from a small theater (preset 9) or a large concert hall (preset 10).
Compared to the STUDIO reverb program, these algorithms sound more lively and have more treble
frequencies.
11-12 Plate: The sound of an ancient plate reverb. A classic algorithm that makes your guitar sound wonderful
and enchanting.
13-14 Gated Reverb: This reverb is cut off abruptly and became famous through Phil Collins’ “In the air
tonight”.
15-16 Ambience: The reverb of any room consists of so-called “early reflections” and the reverb “tail”. This
algorithm emulates the first 15 of these early reflections. Since our ears use these reflections to determine
the room size, they can be employed to create subtle and impressive reverb densities, without clouding
the overall signal with long reverb tails. This effect is particularly impressive when played through a pair
of headphones.
17-19 Wah/Delay/Distortion: In general, filters are used to provide some static equalization of a signal’s
frequency response. The wah effect-combined with delay and distortion in this preset-allows the midrange frequencies to pass, while it more or less suppresses the remaining frequency ranges. Guitarists
such as Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton made this effect popular, and it still hasn’t gone out of fashion.
Using MIDI controller #15 you can edit the operating range of the wah effect, e.g. via a MIDI foot controller.
In this way, it is possible to use the wah effect like an analog wah foot pedal. Adjustable parameter:
delay intensity.
20
Delay/Reverb: This effect produces a normal delay that passes a reverb whose mix ratio can be edited.
21-29 Delay: This algorithm delays the input signal and generates several repeats. The presets produce
various delays with different lengths and repeats. Adjustable parameter: effect mix.
30-33 Phaser: From a technical point of view, phasing is a modulation effect producing a multi-stage phase
shift between direct and effect signals. As the frequency-dependent phase shift is controlled by an
LFO (low-frequency oscillator), the various frequency ranges of the signal are raised or lowered in
their amplitudes. Depending on the setting you choose, the resulting phasing effect is either slightly
modulating in character or produces heavy sound coloration reminiscent of a continuously modulated
filter.
34-37 Chorus: Imagine a string quartet, with each musician playing the same notes. As a matter of fact
though, no musician is able to play with an intonation accuracy of 100%. Consequently, slightly
detuned signal portions are produced which overlap in the time domain. To emulate this effect, chorusing
uses copies of the original signal, which are then delayed by 20 to 40 msec, detuned slightly and
modulated by the LFO. The result is a detune effect that is very pleasant in character. As this effect is
used so frequently and in such a variety of signal-widening applications, any recommendation given here
would mean a restriction of its uses.
3. EFFECTS PROCESSOR

ULTRAROC GX110
38-42 Chorus/Reverb: Here, the signal passes a chorus effect with various intensities and then a reverb.
Adjustable parameter: reverb mix.
43-47 Chorus/Delay: First, the signal is chorused with various intensities, then follows a delay effect with
various feedback levels and adjustable delay time. Adjustable parameter: delay mix.
48-51 Flanger: An LFO constantly modulates the pitch of the effect signal up and down by a few cents and
then sends the effect signal back to the input. This effect can be excellently combined with distorted
guitar sounds.
52-56 Flanger/Reverb: Here, a flanger with various intensities is followed by a reverb. Use the FX MIX control
to edit the reverb mix.
57-61 Flanger/Delay: The first element is a flanger with various intensity levels, then comes a delay effect.
Adjustable parameter: delay mix.
62-63 Tremolo: Tremolo is a more or less fast, intensive variation of the signal amplitude.
64-66 Tremolo/Delay: A more or less fast, intensive amplitude modulation complemented by a delay effect.
Use the FX MIX control to edit the tremolo mix parameter.
67-68 Rotary Speaker: This is the quintessential simulation of the classical organ effect normally produced
by speakers that rotate at slow/fast speed in a bulky and extremely heavy speaker cabinet. This effect
uses the physical principle known as Doppler effect.
69-70 Magic Drive: This is an absolutely up-to-date effect combined with a delay. As a little extra, this effect
includes an LFO-controlled notch filter. Adjustable parameter: delay mix. With its high volume level this
effect is perfectly suitable for solo work.
71-72 Auto Wah: Auto Wah is a velocity-sensitive effect that allows low frequencies to pass, while high
frequencies are more or less suppressed. FX MIX controls the filter depth. Select a low value when you
prefer playing in low registers. The higher the register, the higher the depth value should be (FX MIX).
73-74 LFO Wah: In the LFO Wah effect the LFO governs the speed of frequency modulation. Here, you can
produce wah-wah effects that are repeated at regular intervals. The LFO Wah delivers astounding
results.

3. EFFECTS PROCESSOR
ULTRAROC GX110
75-81 Pitch Shifter: This effect shifts the pitch of the input signal and can be used to produce musical
intervals and harmonies or simply to widen a single voice. Heavy detuning by several semi-tones up
creates a Mickey-Mouse-type effect. The preset variations include various fixed intervals.
82-85 Pitch/Reverb: Here, a pitch shifter set to various cent and semi-tone intervals is followed by a reverb.
Adjustable parameter: pitch shifter mix.
86-89 Pitch/Delay: First, the signal passes the pitch shifter set to various intervals. Then, a delay effect is
added. Use the FX MIX control to edit the pitch shift mix parameter.
90-91 Compressor: To make an audio signal heard in the mix, it often needs to be limited in its dynamic
range. This job is done by compressors and/or limiters. Limiters abruptly limit the signal above a
specific threshold, while compressors provide for a “soft” control process over a wider range. The FX MIX
control allows you to adjust the compressor threshold. Use this effect to give your guitar longer sustain,
or to make the attack sounds of funky guitar licks (Chicken Scratch) clearly audible.
92-93 Expander: All sorts of background noise and hum limit the dynamic range of the wanted signal. As long
as the level of the wanted signal is considerably above the noise floor, background noise is inaudible: the
interference signal is masked by the music. Expanders can be used to efficiently expand the dynamic
range of signals. Small signal amplitudes are cut additionally, which at the same time reduces background
noise. Use the FX MIX control to determine the expander threshold.
94-96 Guitar Combo: This effect simulates the sound characteristics of a complete guitar amp, mimicking
not only two tube stages, but also cabinet and speaker. Use the FX MIX control to adjust the mix of
direct and combo signals.
97-99 Speaker Cabinet: This algorithm emulates three different types of speaker cabinets. Additionally, you
can shift the speaker’s main resonance peak. Use the FX MIX control to edit the filter frequency.
3.2 Controlling the ULTRAROC via MIDI
With its built-in MIDI interface you can integrate your ULTRAROC into any MIDI setup. The GX110 is capable
of receiving both program change and MIDI controller information. So, you can change programs via MIDI
using a MIDI foot controller or a computer-based sequencer software. Our MIDI foot controller FCB1010 gives
you precisely these and more options, and is a perfect match for all BEHRINGER guitar amps. For example,
you could wire the ULTRAROC as follows:
Connect the MIDI IN jack of your ULTRAROC to the MIDI OUT jack of a MIDI foot controller (see fig. 2.2). Now,
enable the MIDI functions on your ULTRAROC by pressing the EFFECT and CHANNEL buttons for about one
second. Use the EFFECTS control to select a MIDI channel (1 through 16, “ON” = Omni mode, “OF” = off).
Confirm your selection with EFFECT. Omni mode means that your ULTRAROC receives and processes MIDI
information on all channels. Of course, you should select the same channel both on your MIDI foot controller
and ULTRAROC (see MIDI foot controller user’s manual).
3. EFFECTS PROCESSOR
15
ULTRAROC GX110
+
Once you activate the MIDI functions, the automatic effect-to-channel assignment feature will
be disabled, i.e. changing channels does not automatically load the previously set effect. As
this assignment feature would cause some confusion when controlling the ULTRAROC via a
MIDI foot controller, it makes sense only when it is controlled from the enclosed footswitch or
directly from the ULTRAROC’s front panel. To operate the ULTRAROC without MIDI remote
control, please disable the MIDI functions (display reads “OF”).
You can select presets via MIDI using program change instructions. Since the range of program change
numbers is 0 through 127, program change instruction 0 corresponds to preset 1, #1 to preset 2, and so forth
(see table 6.2 in the appendix). After changeover the preset is activated immediately, i.e. it will not be affected
by previously adjusted bypass settings.
Channel changes can be effected with controller #10. Sending value 0 via this controller will activate the
CLEAN channel, while value 1 activates the OVERDRIVE channel. Program change instructions can also be
used to change channels. Program change #123 activates the CLEAN channel, program change #124
selects the OVERDRIVE channel of your ULTRAROC. In addition to changing channels, you can also disable
effects, by sending the value 0 via controller #11. Value 1 enables the effect. Alternatively, you can bypass
the effect section by sending program change instruction #127.
MIDI controller #7 adjusts the input sensitivity of the effects module, enabling you to set the overall volume of
your ULTRAROC as desired. Since this controller has no influence on the Master Volume control, you should
adjust the maximum volume before with the Master Volume control, then use MIDI controller #7 to reduce the
volume. This function is also known as “Volume Controller”.
The effect-specific parameter that can be edited with the FX MIX control, can also be remotely controlled
from a MIDI sequencer of foot controller, using MIDI controller #12.
The operating range of the wah-wah effect is governed by MIDI controller #15.
Of course, you can also control the ULTRAROC from a computer-based sequencer software, particularly in a
home recording environment. Specific environments for popular MIDI sequencer programs will soon be
available from our web site (www.behringer.de).
4. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND by Neville Marten (Guitarist Magazine)
The guitar amp: your tone generator
Many guitar players think of their amplifier as the least important link in their musical chain. Sure, everyone
needs the right guitar, with the right finish, pickups and tremolo; and of course effects these days are so
important in looking and sounding cool.
But what of the humble guitar amp? Is it just an ugly box that stands behind you, a heavy hindrance that’s just
a drag to get into and out of the car? No, it’s your powerhouse, a tone generator that should work as an equal
member with you, your guitar and effects in the creation of the best possible sound.
Ever since the 1940s, when a radio repairman in Orange County California started customizing tube radio
circuits for the new breed of electric guitarists, guitar amps have been evolving into what we see today. Great
American names like Fender™, Ampeg™ and Gibson™ supplied small-output amplifiers to the guitarists of
the ’40s and ’50s, creating the sound of electric jazz, rock’n’roll and country music; a sound that’s still as
fresh as ever at the dawn of this new millennium.
As the ’50s became the ’60s, the British sound was born with Vox™ producing small-powered valve amps for
groups like The Shadows, then later The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, The Hollies and The Hermits. Then,
in the mid-’60s a drummer from London was asked by some budding musicians to build them some amplification.
Jim Marshall™ took the basic American design and using British components and speakers, created higher
Wattage amps and multi-speaker cabinets to give bands like The Who, Cream and The Jimi Hendrix Experience
the power to begin their assaults on the rock stadiums of the world.
Amp design has come a long way since then. Multi-channels and cascading gain stages, as pioneered by
Randall Smith and his Mesa Boogie™ amps, are found in the majority of stacks and combos built by amp
manufacturers all over the world today. Modern, solid-state circuits and digital effects are now commonplace
and in some instances work successfully on their own, or hand-in-hand with classic tube designs, to create
versatile performing instruments for working guitarists. Other manufacturers are looking back to the old ways,
with hand-wired, vintage-style “boutique” amps than can cost the earth.

4. HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
ULTRAROC GX110
Whichever option you choose, the ears of discerning musicians recognize that, behind the bells, whistles and
hype, there must be a great-sounding amplifier – a real musical tool that not only uses the best of today’s
technologies, but pays its respects to the great pioneers that have gone before.
(We would like to thank Mr. Neville Marten, the editor of Guitarist Magazine, for this little essay about the
history of guitar amp development.)
Fender™, Ampeg™, Gibson™, Vox™, Marshall™, Mesa Boogie™ and the names of musical artists and groups are all registered
trademarks of their respective owners, which are in no way associated or affiliated with BEHRINGER.
5. INSTALLATION
Your BEHRINGER ULTRAROC was carefully packed in the factory and the packaging is designed to protect
the unit from rough handling. Nevertheless, we recommend that you carefully examine the packaging and its
contents for any signs of physical damage, which may have occurred during transit.
+
If the unit is damaged, please do not return it to BEHRINGER, but notify your dealer and the
shipping company immediately, otherwise claims for damage or replacement may not be granted.
Shipping claims must be made by the consignee.
5.1 Mains connection
Please ensure that the ULTRAROC is set to the correct supply voltage before connecting the unit to
the AC power system! Three triangular markings can be found on the fuse holder at the AC power connection
socket. Two of these three triangles will be aligned with one another. The ULTRAROC is set to the operating
voltage shown next to these markings and can be switched over by twisting the fuse holder by 180°. IMPORTANT:
This does not apply to export models designed only for 115 V ~!
The mains connection of the ULTRAROC is made by using the enclosed mains cable and a standard IEC
receptacle. It meets all of the international safety certification requirements.
+
Please make sure that all units have a proper ground connection. For your own safety, never
remove or disable the ground conductor of the unit or of the AC power cable.
5.2 Audio connections
The BEHRINGER ULTRAROC is installed with 1/4" mono jacks. Only the headphones output and the line/aux
inputs/outputs are available via a 1/4" stereo jack.
+
Please ensure that only qualified persons install and operate the ULTRAROC. During installation and operation the user must have sufficient electrical contact to earth. Electrostatic charges
might affect the operation of the ULTRAROC!

5.2.1 Loudspeaker connector
Your GX110 features a speaker jack that allows you to hook up a supplementary speaker. Optimum adaptation
is ensured with 8 Ω loudspeakers.
You can also connect speakers with lower impedances. However, this could trigger the power stage protective
circuitry on your GX110. With too high an impedance load, the maximum power output will drop in proportion
to the resistance connected.

5.3 MIDI connection
The MIDI standard (Musical Instruments Digital Interface) was developed in the early 80’s to enable electronic
musical instruments of different makes to communicate with each other. Over the years the range of MIDI
applications has constantly expanded, and today it is completely normal to network entire recording studios
using the MIDI standard.
At the heart of this network we find a computer loaded with a sequencer software that controls not only the
keyboards but also effects and other peripheral devices. In such a studio you could control your ULTRAROC in
real time from a computer. In particular, when playing live gigs you can use a MIDI foot controller to control both
the effect parameters and channel/effect changes on your ULTRAROC.
The MIDI connector on the rear of your ULTRAROC is an internationally standardized 5-pin DIN jack. To
connect your ULTRAROC to other MIDI equipment, you need a dedicated MIDI cable, which is commercially
available in various lengths. However, you can solder your own cables using 2-conductor shielded cables
(e.g. microphone cables) and two rugged 180° DIN plugs: pin 2 (center) = shield; pins 4 and 5 (right and left
of pin 2) = internal conductor; pins 1 and 3 (the outer pins) are not used. MIDI cables should not exceed a
length of 15 meters.
+
Make sure that pin 4 is connected to pin 4, and pin 5 to pin 5.
MIDI IN: receives MIDI controller information. The receiving channel can be set with the buttons EFFECTS
and CHANNEL. On = Omni, i.e. MIDI data are received and processed on all channels (cf. chapter 3.2).
