Product Overview

How many amps & pedals do you need to sound your best?
Maybe you just need an Ampero One.

Hey guys, I always use a tube amp and 9 pedal rig, and I love this sound. Why should I choose Ampero One?
OK, that is very easy on Ampero One. It has great tube amps generated by new technology, modeling everything from extremely heavy driven sounds to pure clean ones. You can play heavy grunge to jazzy clean. These are easy by using Hotone's New Hotone modeling technology: CDCM HD + F.I.R.E makes it all possible.

What is it, digital?
Hotone's dynamic modeling called “CDCM HD” reacts enough to the dynamics of your playing style. It's not flat sounding like other modeling. Also, IR systems. An easy description is that “it emulates to a preset sample sound”. This helps sounds like acoustic guitar in Ampero One. 

Does it sounds better than other modeling systems?
In order to make you sound amazing, Ampero One needs massive processing power, must be LIGHTNING FAST. Making you sound like you want for “your rig”, it needs to use a SHARC® DSP* chip.

NOTE: Ampero One features a powerful Analog Devices® SHARC®* series DSP. Compared to HOTONE 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.

I do not want to keep jumping up & down on switches.
If you keep playing with an old fashion amp & pedal board, you need to keep stepping on switches on pedals. Ampero One is easy, one switch to change all presets. And those switches can be tailored to your needs.

I can adjust my effect chain of my rig at any time!
Numbers of multi-effects feature a fixed signal chain (some of them might have a few flexible effect modules), but Ampero One is different. You can easily modify the effect chain by a few simple touches and slides on the screen — That's much more convenient than using a "fix chain" multi-effects or changing pedal orders on a huge pedalboard!

Sometimes, it’s difficult to carry an amp & big pedal board to gigs
You do not need to carry an amp to your gig anymore. Maybe your favorite one or two pedals along with Ampero One. This will be your complete live rig. And Ampero One runs on 9V DC like other digital pedal on your pedal board.

9V adapter?
Yes, instead of Ampero's 18V power supply, Ampero ONE runs on 9V, which ensures better convenience, but internally Ampero ONE is driven by 18V DC at analog section for closest possible playing expereince comparing to to Ampero's stunning dynamic response. This design makes dramatically higher dynamics than other pedals. Electric & Acoustic guitars could breath more deeply. You can play with your good chops.

*No input mode selector?
Yes, Ampero One does have no input mode selector* compared to Ampero, But Hotone designed a special input jack with high input impedance (up to 4.7M Ohms) for the best possible instrument compatibility. This makes Ampero One ready for electric guitars/basses and acoustic instruments without a input mode selector.

Yeah, I want to play at my live gig just like my recording.
Once you program your favorite sounds as “patch” on Ampero One, you can directly record from a USB or connect to an audio interface from analog outputs. So, at live gigs, you can recall the same “patch” to play the same way “live”.

Can I grow with Ampero One?
Yes, you can choose vibrant sounds from our huge sound library.

Advanced CDCM HD and F.I.R.E. Modeling System

Driving Ampero is Hotone’s innovative CDCM HD (Comprehensive Dynamic Circuit Modeling High Definition) and F.I.R.E. (Field Impulse Response Enhancement) system. Built on Hotone’s powerful XTOMP platform, acclaimed Binary series, and breakthrough VStomp Amp virtual plugin, the new-gen CDCM HD & F.I.R.E. system showcases Hotone’s new high-shelf circuit modeling methods.

Mainstream modeling methods are generally based on static state circuitry modeling or “black box” theory, which just “come close” to the modeled sound. CDCM HD & F.I.R.E. employs a complex system based on dynamic feature modeling. In this matrix, the technology “rebuilds” the entire circuitry using modeled electronic components, resulting in a tone that is vivid, accurate and expressive. More than that, the new system enhances the relationship between amps and PA systems, delivering a realistic feel and response you’ve never before experienced on digital gear.

Core*-Dual-DSP Platform

Ampero One is powered by the same dual-DSP platform with uncompromised high performance, 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.

Ampero One can handle up to 9 effect modules simultaneously with its flexible FX1, FX2, FX3 effect modules and editable effect chain for the best effect combination possibilities. Ampero One shares the same effects library with authentic stereo signal processing:

● 242 effects
● CDCM HD & F.I.R.E. modeling effects including:64 amp models/60 cab models/100+ legendary pedal models/Next-gen mic position and microphone type simulations
● User custom IR loader with 3rd party IR support
● 50+ Hotone original effects (incl. high quality drive/dynamic/filter/mod/delay/reverb models and more)

Authentic Acoustic Sound

No need to carry an extra acoustic anymore! Ampero One comes with advanced 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, even double basses!
