Designed to house the sounds of modeled stompboxes and effects in one relatively compact unit, the XTOMP by Hotone utilizes an Android and iOS compatible app—as well as Bluetooth LE connectivity—to instantiate over 300 classic, vintage, and modern pedal tones, making them accessible and available to guitarists, bassists, and other instrumentalists seeking a wide range of versatile timbres within a comparatively small footprint. Hotone uses Comprehensive Dynamic Circuit Modeling technology (CDCM) to utilize dynamic signal variation when constructing their algorithms of emulation, thereby achieving a tonal response authentically dependent on your dynamics at any given time.
The pedal itself features a thin zinc-alloy casing replete with knobs surrounded by multicolored LEDs. The functionality of these knobs changes depending on the algorithms you've loaded into the pedal, and whatever effect you've chosen, its corresponding parameters will be displayed within the included XTOMP app. In this manner, the app illustrates how the effect is mapped out on the stompbox.
In addition to its dual 1/4" input/output configuration—through which stereo effects can also be engaged and routed—the pedal sports a USB jack for updating firmware, as well as for loading and managing effects.
