Hotone (http://www.hotoneaudio.com) has released the Binary Series, a collection of four effects pedals for guitar and bass that produce versatile, pro-level effects in compact cases.
Based on the familiar effect library that has amazed XTOMP users worldwide, the Binary Series pedals gather a multitude of effects. Each Binary Series pedal features a dual-footswitch design, versatile inputs/outputs and an OLED display.
At the core of the Binary Series sound is a dual-DSP (digital signal processing) platform and Hotone’s proprietary Comprehensive Dynamic Circuit Modeling (CDCM) system that ensures a realistic playing experience. The CDCM system is built on a complex dynamic variation matrix that’s able to realistically express every detailed change that occurs during the operational process of actual circuitry.
The Hotone Binary Amp is an amplifier simulator effects pedal that delivers 16 classic/legendary guitar amp models inspired by various products by Friedman®, Mesa/Boggie, Fender, Peavey, Marshall, ENGLE, Soldano, VOX, Orange, and more, each with its own high-quality cab simulators. Additionally, a built-in FX loop allows the sounds to be expanded even further.
The Hotone Binary Eko is a CDCM-based delay effects pedal with stereo I/O and expression pedal support for delivering classic and new Hotone delay sounds. Seventeen delay effects types include analog, digital, tape, dual, ping pong, filtered, modulated, slap back, and more.
The Hotone IR Cab is an impulse response-based cabinet simulator effects pedal that delivers 100 authentic vintage and modern guitar and bass cab models inspired by various products by Fender, Supro, VOX, Dumble, Marshall, Mesa/Boggie, Bogner, Hartke, and more. Additionally, the IR Cab features CDCM-based studio microphone and power amp models, as well as a variety of detailed mic position (X, Y, Z) and room simulations. Users can also import their own IR files to further expand the pedals library.
The Hotone Binary Mod is a CDCM-based modulation effects pedal with stereo I/O and expression pedal support for delivering classic and new Hotone modulation sounds. 24 high-quality modulation effects include choruses, flangers, phasers, tremolos, rotary speaker simulators, vibratos, wahs, detuners and more.
