Welcome to this page dedicated to presets for the HOTONE Ampero multi-effects. These presets are examples or demos that can get you started or give you some tone and settings ideas. These presets are designed and tested for metal/rock and distorted tone in general, but you might give them a try even if you play in other styles.
Overdriven.fr presets for Hotone Ampero
These presets either use the built-in Ampero cabs or the impulse responses freely available on this web site. For the different presets, the setup instructions are provided. Take a look at the Impulse Response download page if you want to have a look at the available impulses as well as presentation and usage instructions.
Rector presets for Ampero – Pack 1
These are my first 11 patches made for the Ampero, using the Rector Dual V (Ch3 vintage) and the Rector Dual M (Ch3 modern), for mid-gain to high-gain tones. The patches use 10 free overdriven.fr IRs coming directly from the available collections for the main part, a few of them are custom mixes created for this collection.
All patches use 4 blocks : an overdrive in FX2, the Amp block, the NR Block and the CAB block. The patches were created and tested using a (six strings) guitar tuned to E standard with Fishman Fluence in modern voicing. Using other pickups like passive ones (SH-4 for example), you will probably need to raise the level/volume of the overdrive, and eventually raise the gain on the OD and/or the amp. Using EMG 81, you may need to beef-up the low-end either by changing the voicing of the overdrive (for the presets using the Precise Attack OD for example, you can switch the voice to 1), change the overdrive or simply raise the bass on the amp. For very low output pickups (maybe some single coils) you can also pile up a booster or a compressor with the FX1 slot, this can be used as well for more gain on lead tones for example. Double check the position of the expression pedal has this can slightly impact the presets volumes. Give a try to the EQ in the presets, for small tone variations.
