Wow, what a great pedal to have for those "specialty sounds" that pop up in a set list or as a back up to all your other pedals. Thanks for posting that.
I would want 4 of these linked with master presets to make all 4 change depending on the song. Ultimate utility board and small size.
Zoom G series or Multi-stomp pedals... Seriously! FWIW I am a G3 owner... no Bluetooth, but don't need it.
The biggest difference I see between the Hotone and the multitude of other multi-fx on the market is that the Hotone looks analog - but it isn't! I guess it passes the sniff test when other guitar players look at your pedal board
Or line6 m9 or m13.
Absolutely! By mentioning Zoom I wasn't trying to exclude any other players
This Hotone pedal looks fine... I'm not trying to dis it. But it's a digital multi effects that does one effect at a time... nothing more from what I see other than the looks!
What i like about the hotone is that a pedal can be loaded via the app and then you have your knobs to twiddle a la a real pedal.. I've owned multis before and the whole thing of edit, scroll thru to whatever parameter you want to adjust, repeat for each parameter, store preset, then find you want to tweak it a touch so you then repeat the whole process, that did my head in... as long as loading a pedal only takes 5 to 10 secs so it can be done between songs at a gig, i think it will suit my level of techphobia a bit more..
How do you know what knob does what? Seems like you have to memorise them from when you download the pedal type.
What happens in five years when they stop supporting your current OS/phone/browser/website no longer in business? Do you end up with a stomp box filled with your final download?
When u bring the required pedal up on the app, it gives you the image of the original pedal and immediately below appears a visual of the hotone pedal with the relevant knobs highlighted.. so as long as you can have your device reasonably close to your pedal, it should be smooth sailing
As per second question, your guess is as good as mine!

I have enough crap already. Except for a few pedals I think I need.
So what you are saying is... yeah, you have to memorize it, or keep a phone/tablet close to the pedal during use which seems impractical to me. Something like the Tube Screamer is simple, many others - not so much.
The part where he started using the tap tempo on the modulated delay = hot.
This is reaaaally cool.
Also while I was typing the TS9 model started playing and I identified it by sound without seeing it. They're reaaaaaaally onto something here.
Boss: pay attention.
You'll end up with an xdoorstop like digitech did with their iBrick.
No argument from me there, it's not gonna be a perfect pedal or completely practical to gig with.. but i love that I'll be able to get very very close to many pedals that i can't afford if i was to buy them individually, with what seems to be a much quicker and easier interface than a traditional multi pedal/modeller..i can sense it will inspire me to play my guitar more often which has gotta be a good thing
This is EXACTLY why I despise modelers (Kemper, Helix, Amplifire, etc..) that rely on software to get the goodies. Obsolescence will come much more rapidly for gear like this.
The problem is not with self-contained modellers that rely on software. But rather those companies that bind their products to independent third party devices for their basic functionality.
Well..I received an Xtomp Mini for my birthday a couple of weeks back. First gig last night. I'm gobsmacked how good it is. I only used about 5 FX models, one of the drives was a bit noisy, but everything else was a joy to use. The ZenDrive emulation in particular was a thing of sonic beauty. Had success with a couple of different choruses that weren't at all syrupy, and an autowah that I never thought I'd use.
Worth the price of admission for the ZenDrive alone. It made my whole sound lift to another level and inspired me to play better, which was noted by the bandleader.
Can't wait for the next gig..
I'm predicting a thread within a year, asking....'So what do you have set on the Xtomp slot on YOUR pedal board?'
Which will be quickly followed by a thread asking....'So what boutique analog pedal replaced your Xtomp when you started using it as a door stop?'
Yet I'm interested.
