IK Multimedia Announces the TONEX ONE

IK Multimedia announces TONEX ONE, a budget-friendly pedal with AI Machine Modeling technology for hyper-realistic amp and effects tones.


Ultra-compact, TONEX ONE plays hyper-realistic modeled amps, cabs, and stomps from a nearly infinite supply. It features 3 playable slots that are easily swapped on the fly with any of the 20 Tone Model presets in its active memory.

To swap any of the 20 preloaded presets, users can connect TONEX ONE to a computer via USB-C and quickly transfer new Tone Models from their local library, ToneNET (IK'stone-sharing platform), or their own gear captured with the included TONEX software. With multiple units on a single pedalboard, the tone possibilities are truly limitless.

Small Size, Huge Sound

TONEX ONE packs the same incredible responsiveness and dynamics as TONEX Pedal, but in a mini format that saves space and travels anywhere. Presets can be fine-tuned on the fly using the onboard gain/volume and 3-band EQ, then FX like noise gate, compression, and stereo reverb are there to dial in the right sound at any live venue. All changes made are automatically saved without a computer and ready for the next rehearsal or gig.

Infinite Tones on Tap

TONEX ONE keeps users inspired no matter where their musical journey takes them. Store up to 20 presets from the included 200+ premium Tone Models or download any of the over 25,000 and growing user Tone Models from ToneNET directly to the pedal. Add more tones with IK Signature Collections or explore hundreds of ever-expanding TonePartner collections that feature rare, vintage, and modern amps and pedals expertly dialed in.

The Best Gear Forever and Always

It's never been easier to create a virtual version of one's favorite amps and pedals. Capture any rig with the included TONEX SE software for use across the entire TONEXEcosystem including TONEX ONE, TONEX Mac/PC, TONEX Pedal, and TONEX iOS.Imagine always having favorite gear on hand with TONEX ONE to play live or in the studio. Speaking of studio, TONEX ONE doubles as a handy USB-C audio interface for recording electric guitar or bass on a Mac/PC. For low-latency monitoring, users can record with any of the onboard Tone Models and effects, while using the stomp button in real time to switch between presets. The TRS/stereo output works with both headphones or active speakers for monitoring.

Ready for the Road

TONEX ONE delivers not only jaw-dropping tones and essential effects but also the right connectivity and controls for the best performance possible at each venue. Select between Dual A/B or Stomp operating modes for either channel-switching type operation or standard pedal on/off function when using stomp captures.

The 3 micro knobs feature 9 custom LED colors that can be assigned and saved to any preset for visual identification of the selected Tone Model, or for differentiating between multiple TONEX ONE pedals during live performance. TONEX ONE also makes streamlining for travel easy with its onboard smart tuner.

Any Rig, Any Size

Designed to fit all pedalboards and small enough to chain multiple pedals, TONEX ONE gives users the freedom to build the perfect travel rig or enhance their existing pedalboard. Use 2 TONEX ONE pedals to create a killer stereo rig or place multiple units in series for tone stacking and boosting lead and rhythm tones.

TONEX ONE is simple to use and connects to any type of guitar or bass rig including realamps, PA systems, and FRFR (Full Range, Flat Response) cabs. Its "no cab" option is a must when using real guitar cabinets or speaker emulators. Or activate the "cab" for consistent, pristine miked cabinet tones night after night. Even load custom IRs to use with other gear to experience rich, cranked amp tones at any volume level, perfect for in-ear monitors or where controlling stage volume is essential.

Expanding Ecosystem of Tone

TONEX ONE goes beyond the stage with the massive ToneNET community sharing new tones daily (currently offering well over 25,000 Tone Models). Explore, demo, and download, or share gear captures with the community instantly within the included TONEX software. TONEX ONE represents a revolution for guitar and bass players. Throw it in the gig bag and never leave home without the best rigs in the world.
