Wildfire Basics 
 
Benefits of an On-Board Effect Processor 
If you use guitar effects, you probably do so by linking 
pedals together into a chain or by using a multi-effect 
processor. All this extra equipment can cost a fortune 
and crowd your playing space. The Wildfire, however, 
simplifies things because it includes all the effects you 
need right in your amplifier. Instead of tripping over 
extra wires and turning knobs and pushing buttons on 
pedal after pedal, with the Wildfire you have full control 
over dozens of effects without the need for an external 
processor! 
 
Effect Modules 
If you were to think of the Wildfire’s effect processor as 
a series of individual pedals linked together, then each 
pedal in that series would be considered an effect 
module. The Wildfire has nine separate effect modules, 
as shown below: 
 
 
 
You can assign one effect to each of these modules and 
adjust its parameters accordingly. For more on the 
Wildfire’s effect modules, see chapter 10. 
 
Effect Types 
When we use the word “effect” in this manual, we’re 
usually referring to an effect type. Each module provides 
you with a selection of effect types, only one of which 
may be chosen for each module. For example, the DIST 
module allows you to select which type of distortion you 
want (ACOUSTIC, TUBE CLEAN, RHYTHM and 
others). The behavior of each of these effect types may 
be adjusted in one or more ways to produce variations 
of the effect.
