With a built-in looper that supports up to 60 seconds of sound and 40 different drum rhythms, the Arena2000 can quickly record demos or allow musicians to perform live as a one-man band. A headphone output allows for music creation in all volume settings. Additionally, users can quickly capture inspiration using a OTG USB cable connecting the pedal to their mobile phone.
Developed by its leading R&D group, Donner’s powerful FVACM (Forward Analog Virtual Circuit Modeling) tone generating technology is a key highlight in the Arena2000. With its high precision 24bit/44.1kHz audio processing, the FVACM technology excellently restores the characteristics of classic guitar tones and amplifiers, making the tone more dynamic and layered.
The IR sample length of Arena2000 is up to 23.2ms. This ultra-long resolution capability can precisely restore the tone of the IR collection object and reproduce the acoustic environment of the collection space, resulting in a tone with a greater dynamic range and a stronger sense of spatial authenticity.
Arena200 gives guitarists a huge amount of flexibility to build their dream tones. Players can easily create dream rigs comprising 10 individual FX along with 1 amp model and 1 cab model in a single preset.
The Arena2000’s multi-terminal interface makes it ideal for on-stage performance and recording, as well as daily practice at home. The Arena2000’s touch mode complements its small panel design, and user navigation is easy-to-operate — so easy, that even beginners who have never handled a multi-effect processor can get started within minutes. The unit’s small form-factor allows musicians to take the Arena2000 with them wherever they perform their music, whether that’s in their bedroom studio, a professional recording studio or a live stage.
The Arena2000 features a guitar-in, aux-in, MIDI-in, XLR L/R, an unbalanced ¼-inch L/R, phone-out and USB interface capabilities, which make it a potent multi-terminal interface that can operate in any circumstances. A built-in cabinet simulation output option allows users to effortlessly switch between the ¼ output port and the XLR output port— making the unit very handy during live performances.
