Mooer Unveils the Preamp Live

The pedal features 12 different preamps, a programmable effects loop, and an optional independent speaker cab sim.

Shenzhen, China (August 28, 2018) -- MOOER have finally released their long-awaited flagship preamp product, Preamp Live, which made a well-received debut appearance at the Winter NAMM 2018.

Preamp Live has been designed from the ground up to be the ultimate digital preamp modeller for use in a live situation. Every control feature has been carefully thought out to be intuitive and provide the best experience for live performance. Preamp Live provides a wide array of different amp tones right at your feet. It lets you select and carry 12 independent preamp channels of your choice, from a selection of 50 models available within the supporting software and mobile apps.

Added to each of the 12 preamp channels is a dual position booster, adjustable pre and post noise gates, a fully programmable effects loop with different modes, full channel switching control, MIDI IN and OUT, dedicated headphone connection, multiple outputs with optional cab simulation and IR loading capabilities.
