What does the Ampero’s box include?

The Hotone Ampero comes with its own AC adapter, an E-type power cable and a USB cable for connecting the device to a computer.

The plug I received is a type E?

Every Ampero model we sell uses the type E plugs that are used in many European, Asian and South American countries. We are headquartered in France, so our products are equipped with the plugs from our home country. However, it is perfectly possible for you to use your country’s type of plug. Simply replace the original cable with an equivalent cable equipped with the same plug found in your country of residence.

I accidentally erased all the effects?

We recommend that you always have a backup of your effects patches. If you have erased them, contact us so that we can help you restore the original settings. Please note that we can’t recover the effects you created or the settings you applied to the existing effects.

My Ampero is not recognized by the Ampero Editor software?

First check the firmware version installed on your Ampero. You will find it in the Global menu. Then download and install the appropriate version of Ampero Editor software for your Ampero firmware version on your computer.

Ampero are updated very often by Hotone, the manufacturer, and new firmware is released on a regular basis. The Ampero Editor software is also updated frequently.

Where can I download the Ampero Editor software?

Go to the Ampero One processor page on Hotone’s website. The software download links are located at the bottom of the page. Before downloading the software, check the compatibility between the software version and the firmware of your multi-effects.

Can I update my Hotone processor?

Yes. To be safe, first make a backup of your Hotone configuration and effects. Then, download the latest firmware available on Hotone’s website following the manufacturer’s instructions.

I bought the Ampero from another site and it doesn’t include your effects.

Ampero multi-effect processors offered by other stores do not include our electric violin and viola effects. Hotone only produces multi-effects processors for guitarists. We have chosen to create and add our own effects to meet the needs of many violinists and violists. However, Hotone does not distribute our own effects through its factory models.

Can I buy only your effects?

We do not have permission to sell only our effects.

Wonderful product, a little bit complicated at the beginning. But once you have understood how it is working, you will enjoy the creation of your own effects.

All the reviews on our site come from verified buyers who play one or more of our electric violins. Some reviews were translated from violinist native language to relevant language in order to ensure your understanding.
