Brand new from Hotone Audio is Ampero II Stomp, a second generation amp modeller and effects processor.
Powered by a tri-core platform and a Hi-Fi grade ESS Sabre AD/DA, Hotone states that the Ampero II Stomp pushes the Ampero sound to a new level, delivering a more detailed, organic sound, with richer tonal dimensions.
A highly customisable dual-effect chain and advanced functions have been introduced, while its pedalboard-friendly design make it a strong choice for pedal fanatics.
In the past, digital multi effects could be criticised for producing a dull, lifeless sound. Hotone’s aim has always been to eliminate this stereotype, and the manufacturer has devoted its efforts to crafting an authentic sound comparable to what one would experience from a real amplifier.
The company’s CDCM HD + F.I.R.E modelling technology models every component of the original device, building a model that tracks the dynamic variations of the instrument’s input signal, which maximises the capability for the reproduction of the exact sound characteristics of the modelled object, while claiming to deliver a more dynamic, “in-the-moment” tonal feel.
