    yes, but only with one output (l or r) for each signal path. e.g. left output line to power amp and cab (cabsim off) and right output xlr to foh (cabsim on).

    Alright, thanks! :) So, with the Left output always being the one you need to use when going mono, that isn't really an option when having to use the right output for XLR, would that matter mutch?

    Is there any way to audition cabs? It only has 10 user IR slots which makes it pretty impossible to find a 3rd party IR that works well

    Is this still a good unit to buy in August 2019 or are there better items in this price range?

    Also, anyone use it with a DSL40CR? Blow your mind or meh?

    Thnx!

    Of course. Here in Germany it costs still 399€, a good price. But for 499$ in US I would definitely prefer a Headrush Gigboard, if you can spend around 100$ more.

    From all the youtube samples and tests I have heard, I prefer the Amplifire 6 or 13 over the Ampero. Of course that isn’t the best way to judge the real sound for yourself, and that color touch screen certainly looks appealing, but the Amplifire just seems so much easier to make quick eq adjustments to; every venue has different acoustics and it helps to quickly adjust your tone without menu diving.
    I really really wanted to like the Tech21 Flyrigs since friends of mine use those live everywhere and love them, but those all sound ****** (imho) in the samples I’ve heard :/

    Zoomg3------ZoomG5n----boss gt1-------------------------------helix----HeadRush-------boss gt1000-

    Using that as a scale for the quality of modelling as a spectrum from left to right, as both is according to my perception, and many people's opinions on here (I appreciate some may think the Helix sounds better than HR or Zoom better than GT1 etc but .. Forget it), where would you put the Ampero on this scale?

    The Boss is the best modeller out of that group? That's genuinely news to me.

    I've only had the Helix & Ampero but I'd put the Ampero just a few ticks ahead of the Helix for general modelling, but one tick behind for effects quality.

    I have owned all these (have not played the Hotone though) and for me it's much better than any of these. They all have there good and bad points but if the amp sound is important to you then the Boss GT 1000 is absolutely fantastic!

    Elantric.

    Sorry for the "off-topic-ness" but I was re-reading this thread realising that I had missed the first couple of pages the first time around (or quite possibly just forgot them), and I notice that many people have responded with quotes to posts or comments of yours, but those original posts are missing.

    Indeed some responses in the thread seem to refer to things that just do not exists, and I started to guess that this may also be missing posts of yours.

    Did you have a mass deletion event of your previous posts in this thread. (I assume its not some access issue I have, as I am able to see a number of more recent posts in the thread from you).

    Hello my dear gearheads, one question, i'm using ampero as an audio interface to record via reaper. can i record DRY signal into reaper (to fine tune it via biasfx later), but hear distorted guitar (patch in ampero) in headphones? thanks.

    Sure. Just set left output to "dry" in global settings or Ampero editor
