ProF.E.T. is a digital emulation of an high gain distortion preamp / stomp-box for guitar.

It has been developed to accurately model its real hardware counterpart, designed and built by Ignite Amps in 2018.

The ProF.E.T. core circuit is capable of delivering tons of tube-like saturation using carefully tuned JFET based gain stages and filters to keep the distortion aggressive and rich of harmonics.

A 4 controls based tonestack with 2 different modes ensures maximum versatility and tone shaping options, whether you use the ProF.E.T. as a preamp or a distortion unit in front of a clean amplifier.
  • Ignite Amps proprietary JFET non-linear modeling engine.
  • 4 controls tonestack with additional Shape switch.
  • Mono / Stereo processing support.
  • Selectable oversampling rate (up to 8x).
  • Global input / output level controls.
  • Double precision (64-bit) floating point mathematical model.
  • Fully automatable controls.
  • Ignite Amps proprietary preset management system with bank file import/export functions.

I love it. I want a real life version. We need more pedal sims and Ignite Amps delivers again. I'd be thrilled if we get to a point where pedal companies and amp sim companies work together so that you get both. The pedal for live shows/practice and the sim for quiet recording.

Really good for heavy metal. Even don`t need an amp sim. Just a cabinet, and a noise gate. One thing i don`t like: low volume if i compare it with similar plugins. That is a problem, sometimes.

Absolutely amazing tone with this, especially when paired with Ignite's tube amp plugin!

One of the best Overdrive / Distortion pedals / sims and one with a lot of individual character. As great as all other Ignite plugs.

Its a beast: I do tend to use these pedals for non guitar?non convetional use but it is very realistic, its fizz is not like the digital fizz im used to and hate with this type of vst.

Probably their best distortion VST. Not entirely sure what it's based on (design made me think it was a Big Muff clone, but it doesn't sound like one)

It doesn't emulate anything known because it's an exact replica of the same hardware pedal/preamp that Ignite Amps themselves created earlier this year. Also, some people say that with the SHAPE swith ON this pedal sounds like a Tube Screamer but with a little different color.
