BluGuitar Unveils the Remote1

All the functionality of AMP1 can be directly accessed via nine switches and organized in four banks with nine Presets each.

Saarbrücken, Germany (October 7, 2015) -- BluGuitar GmbH today announce that the awaited BluGuitar REMOTE1 pedal for controlling and switching the acclaimed BluGuitar AMP1 and the optional LooperKit, a pedal switcher extension for REMOTE1 are now available at dealers world wide.

With REMOTE1 all the functionality of AMP1 can be directly accessed via 9 switches and organised in 4 banks with 9 Presets each. With the built in MIDI-out guitar players also can switch programs of external MIDI-FX-devices simultaneously. Adding the optional LooperKit turns the BluGuitar AMP1 into a full blown programmable switching system with 4 independent true bypass relay loops for FX-Pedals.

Functions:
REMOTE1 is a comfortable foot controller that provides direct access to all of AMP1’s functionality. It even expands AMP1 features by providing a switchable second master volume, programmable gain for all 4 channels and even a programmable power soak. The channels CLEAN, VINTAGE, CLASSIC and MODERN can be directly addressed, adding BOOST, REVERB and FX-LOOP also programming a second master volume is a breeze. All these plus individual master volume, gain and powersoak settings can be stored in presets. Connecting REMOTE1 with AMP1 is very conveniently done with a standard mono jack guitar or speaker cable that also caters for the REMOTE1 power supply and data transfer.

The optional LooperKit expands the BluGuitar AMP1 system with 4 independent true-bypass-relais-Loops for including effects pedals. Each REMOTE1 preset can address the loops individually and combine those loops with any AMP1 settings. This makes the pedal board “tapdancing” a thing of the past.
