February brought us another five free sounds for the Hotone Xtomp library. This time it’s two new amp simulations (Vox® AC-100 amp head and a Vox® 4x12) two effects (a delay and an overdrive) and a combination effect which blends reverb and EQ; designed to give a more ‘woody’ tone to plugged-in acoustics.
If you’re unfamiliar with Xtomp, it’s a hybrid stomp box that ‘becomes’ any one of hundreds of vintage and classic amps, cabinets and pedals - all controlled from your smartphone. Find out more here.
The British Invasion bass sound is now available.
Voxy Bass is an amp simulator based on the sound characteristics of the legendary VOX®* AC-100* amp head, the amp that McCartney was using in 1965. The operation is simple: just treble, bass, and volume controls. Using a violin bass with this amp will totally get you THAT vibe. The right output features a fine-tuned cab simulator, based on the sound characteristics of a VOX® AC-100* cabinet with two 15-inch VOX®-labeled speakers.

This delay model captures the sound of a vintage 1980’s rack-mount delay machine with slightly sample-reduced feedback. Rack delay was the thing back then. Every rad rocker had one. The delay time range is 20ms-1000ms. Hold the footswitch to engage Tap Tempo function. In Tap Tempo mode, the LED around the footswitch will pulse to indicate the delay time you set. Hold the footswitch again to disengage.
The Screamood model is a classic overdrive inspired by the evergreen TS-style overdrive served with its most enduring modification. Use the two onboard switches to find your favorite screaming mood.
This model combines "Acoustic Refiner" and "Northstar", allowing you to use two effects simultaneously (Equalizer + Reverb). The acoustic enhancer gives a more natural, “woody” tone to your plugged-in acoustic sound, doing wonders for piezo pickups! One knob makes it simple. The reverb is a finely-tuned, musical model that takes you to shining reverb heights while keeping the highs under control. Two knobs take you all the way.
