отличная штука!
PaulPil , 31.03.2021
отличная приблуда для тех, кто хочет получить импульсный процессор эффектов за самый адекватный ценник. рассматривал изначально какой-нибудь хэдраш, но в виду кризисной ситуации в мире и у меня в кошельке конкретно этот девайс стал настоящим спасением, открытием и на самом деле весьма достойной альтернативой.
упаковка очень красивая, стильная и вполне может сойти за весьма достойный и солидный подарок на любой праздник или юбилей вашим друзьям увлеченным музыкой и игрой на электро или бас гитаре.
компактность, размеры, вес и качество используемых материалов это наверное чуть ли не главные супер плюсы этого девайса. вы спокойно можете убрать эту штучку практически в любую сумочку, рюкзак или даже в боковой карман вашего кофра или чехла, а значит ваша мобильность как музыканта или человека желающего играть музыку везде - ничем не ограничена, кроме ваших собственных ощущений и представлений о нормальности)))
сенсорный дисплей это внеочередной плюс данного аппарата и он кстати тоже очень интересный и важный так как ночью в темноте управляться с интуитивно понятным экраном намного проще, чем искать крутилки и кнопки.
говорить про сто тридцать(плюс) перемноженные на три основных слотов с эффектам даже и говорить не хочется - тут валом импульсов на самый избирательный вкус, и чистые и перегрузы всех мастей и сортов. и на электро гитару и на басуху, и на акустику - короче берите и не пожалеете! это качественно, удобно, эргомонмично, дешево и утилитарно.

I've had the ampero for 6 months and it completely changed the way I go about making music. I've sold my amps and now this is my whole rig, for live performance and recording. That's how good it is. I don't want to bore you with a full blown love letter to this little black box, so here goes:

PROS:
- all in one. Amp, effects, recording rig, audio interface, looper, drum machine, tuner. This can literally be all your rig, I'm recording an album this week with my band and I can't tell you enough how satisfactory it is to come to recording sessions with only a guitar, this, and a cable;
- Decent sound. So, the way I like to explain sound quality on these modellers is like a movie. A real valve amp is like 4k, the stock IRs that come with this are 720p-1080p, But if you load one in you get up to 1440p which is plenty for me, and you can find them easily for free online (tip: ampero facebook group). Not that the pre installed IRs are bad, some of them are plenty good, like the marshalls and some of the fenders, it all comes to your personal taste. 4 stars but I think this is the one that gets you closer to the real deal sound-wise in this price range;
- Very customizable. It comes with 4 buttons and you can program what every one of those does, gives you a lot to play with on stage or while recording
- the touch screen is an awesome idea, makes everything much easyer, although you won't be using it much if at all in a live situation.
- Build quality is just ridiculous, this thing is built like a safe, the screen could be a weakness though

Cons:
- It's a little noisy on the higher gain/ crunchy stuff when you have the amp modulation on. Fair enough the real amp would do that too, but It gets a bit annoying on long sessions, especially if you're using low impedance headphones. You can however mitigate this with a noise gate, and it's a non-issue on recordings and live playing;
- If you plan on using the expression pedal a lot, this is not for you. It's cool for controling volume or fx parameters or even a little wah every now and then, but it's very basic and a bit stiff for effortless wah playing;
- the looper is very very basic, very limited controls, Good for practicing or coming up with ideas, but nothing else;
- Some of the fx, as well as some of the amp modulations are not quite up to scratch compared to the rest. But don't worry, all of the important stuff is good. Let's just say that out of the 244 fx, about 40 are really weird and a bit trash, they're really funny to play with though.

Good sound and plenty of features at an affordable price
Gossha, 17.05.2020
Hotone Ampero is a great high-middle class guitar processor. For its size and price, it is excellent buy and can be compared with many more expensive devices.

The quality of the production is excellent. Complete metal casing and quality foot switches leave an impression of premium quality. There are a lot of connection ports on the back and you can see that the device is made for professional use. The expression pedal is top quality, it has a good movement and the use is pleasant. Foot switches have nice led lighting. What can be improved by upgrading software is that the inactive foot switches also be illuminated but dimmed so the visibility would be even better in the conditions of the low light (in the dark stages).

The screen is large, sharp, and touch sensitive. It's a real pleasure to use it. All options can be accessed quickly and easily. Everything is intuitive and can be used without reading the instruction manual. My recommendation is to install software for computer and set options there. However, the device is so rich with options that it is not a quite good thing. This is generally the problem with most guitar processors, because manufacturers put hundreds of amps, cabinets, microphones, microphones placement settings, effects and distortions that it is quite difficult to opt for a specific sound. I've spent hours and hours to tweak sounds instead of playing. My proposal is that generally manufacturers can be oriented to a smaller number of quality sounds rather than so many, because lot of peoples are not experienced in sound engineering and will not know how to set a good sound and will be dissatisfied with the device.

There are 9 slots for effects: FX1, FX2, AMP, NR, CAB, EQ, FX3, DLY and RVB.

For Wah, compressor, and OD/Dist. can only be used FX1 and FX2, while FX3 for modulation effects (Flanger, Chorus...). And that's a little problem, if you want to have Wah, Compressor and Distortion in same preset, you won't be able to. You must give up one of them. For example, you can put in FX1 – Wah, in FX2 – Compressor and use Hi-Gain Amp for distortion. So, it is possible to manage, but it would be ideal if there was at least one more slot or if FX3 could carry one of those effects. Changing the order of effects is possible. Just drag’n’drop them anywhere you want.

Ampero have 3 foot switches (FS) to change the preset and one CTRL that may control a feature of your choice. It doesn’t support stomp (manual) mode but what is good is that you can program foot switch combinations. For example, if you press FS1+FS2 at the same time - activate the effect that you want (for example, Chorus) and there is a possibility to program hold function of any foot switches, for example, if you hold FS2 for one second then it activates Delay. You can program CTRL foot switch for a solo boost or anything you want also. In other words, a device can be programmed in many combinations. If that is not enough, you can attach a MIDI foot controller and program it to do anything you want.

Sound quality is excellent and is a high-middle class. I would position this device as slightly better than Mooer GE200 and slightly weaker than Line 6 POD Go. The Amp and Cab modeling is very realistic and can be used without problems for direct recording and live performances also direct to mixer or PA. Just plug the device into anything and it will sound great. When a USB cable is connected to the computer, it works as a 24-bit sound interface, and device also supports custom Impulse Response/IR files.

Rhythm machine with 100 rhythms and looper with 120 seconds are excellent and will give you great pleasure for jamming. The looper can be set to be before all effects or can be after. For example, if is set to work in PRE-mode, then you can record a sequence and while loop play change effects, distortions, amplifiers, mics... to find the ideal sound. You don't have to play after each changed parameter, just change parameters in real time and listen sound from the looper. Very useful feature. The only complaint is that the looper cannot be controlled through software on the computer. The rhythm machine can but the looper cannot... It would be nice if Hotone add this in future software updates. When I'm in front of the computer, I want to do everything on the computer.

All in all, a device worth the attention. A well-rounded product where in a small package and affordable price you get everything you will ever need for the hi quality direct recording and live performance.

The good:
features (packed with functions)
casing/build quality
UI and PC connectivity

the "not so good":
tpyed sound (but that is expected with a multi Fx, it is not meant to sound or react like a real amp would, and does not indeed.)
wah/exoression pedal is tiny (and on the wrong side for lefties)

overall this item has very good price/quality point but this is NOT to be compared with more pricy multifxes, even though it pretend to the same functionalities, think of it as a swiss army knife if you relocate/move and need something to practice.

the very bad thing : looper latency makes it completely useless as a teacher I would not want someone to work on rhythm with this.
