Regular price $399.00

PLEASE NOTE - THIS WILL SHIP IN EARLY MAY

Ampero amp modeler & effects processor is a game changer. It’s heart pounding amp modeling and uber quality effects are powered by the new-gen CDCM HD (Comprehensive Dynamic Circuit Modeling High Definition) and F.I.R.E. (Field Impulse Response Enhancement) system, bringing you the absolute best the world has to offer. Packaged in a cool, thin case with a 4-inch hi-def color touch screen, Ampero delivers all the real sounds of rock past and present.

Ampero is powered by a huge dual-DSP platform running Hotone’s proprietary CDCM HD & F.I.R.E. modeling system.

● Main Processor - Analog Devices® SHARC® series

A powerful Analog Devices® 4th gen SHARC® series DSP is dedicated to the audio engine. Compared to XTOMP, this processor features increased performance and hardware-based audio processing accelerator modules, which makes it easy to handle multiple XTOMP-grade high quality effect algorithms.  

● Co-processor - NXP® RT series

The NXP® RT series crossover co-processor runs on the ARM® Cortex®-M7 core.

The co-processor not only helps processing audio streams, but also powers the touch screen display, USB I/O, and other functions.

Not Only for Electric Guitars

Ampero employs a special design input mode selector that is designed not only for electric instruments, but also for acoustic players and even keyboard players! Simply connect your instrument to the input jack, select a mode for your instrument, pick a dedicated electric/acoustic/FX preset and you’re ready to roll.

Authentic Acoustic Sounds

No need to carry an extra acoustic anymore! Ampero comes with advanced “black tech” acoustic simulation algorithms. Used along with built-in acoustic IRs and acoustic simulation presets, you can easily transform your electric instruments into miked up acoustic masterpieces: steel string, nylon string, resonator, even ukulele!

Armory

Ampero can handle up to 9 effect modules simultaneously with its flexible FX1, FX2 and FX3/MOD effect modules for the best authentic stereo effect processing experience. Ampero shares the same growing modeling/original effects library as our all-powerful XTOMP pedal with even more goods:
