Ampete 4×4/FX Midi Amp/Cabinet Switching System

The Ampete 444 switches and routes up to 4 different Amplifiers (one at a time) into 4 (up to two at at a time) different speaker-cabinets via MIDI program or control change. In case the connected amplifiers feature an FX-loop, one multi effect can be assigned to any of them, which gives the option of spillover effects between the different amps in conjunction with a delay or reverb. That way the most favored effect or an external loopersystem can be used with any possible combination.

That function can be toggled on and off (hardware bypass) at the front via the FX-Loop switch. Such the preamp signal can be routed to an effect chain or directly into the power amp.
