The Mooer X2 line is adding two new members belonging to the amp modeling niche – the second one being the Cab X2. The Preamp Model X X2 is a Dual-Channel Digital Preamp pedal boasting a compact case, 14 editable presets, dual footswitches and three cab simulations.
Each of the 14 presets allows to load and set up two separate channel settings through Channel A/Purple and Channel B/Blue, so you can easily switch between the two via the footswitches, which can be used also to select the presets.
The pedal also offers a three-way EQ section (Bass, Mid, Treble) for extra tone sculpting, but that only scratches the surface of what this pedal can do through the free Mooer Studio editing software, which allows loading of third party Impulse Responses, and also sample files of actual amplifiers using Mooer’s MNRS technology.

Mooer Preamp Model X X2, Builder’s Notes
The new Preamp Model X comes loaded with a host of new features that make it easy to customize your digital preamp and cab setup. Featuring 3 global cab sim files, support for third-party impulse response files, and 14 preset slots, each with two different channel settings to customize, the Model X offers plenty of space to prepare for long gigs or the freedom to explore and save different tonal combinations.
Where the Preamp Model X excels compared to previous MOOER preamp pedals is in the user interface and digital editor software. The expanded footswitch layout of the X2 gives users two settings to choose from: one for preset scrolling and one for A/B channel switching. This allows users to quickly cycle through presets at just a tap of the foot. The editor software is free and can be downloaded from MOOER’s website (www.mooeraudio.com) and allows users the comfort of a desktop interface when customizing and tweaking presets, loading third-party impulse response files, or updating the Model X2’s firmware.
The Preamp Model X has been specifically designed to be compatible with files created using MOOER’s MNRS sampling technology. Simply download these files from MOOER Studio (www.mooerstudio.com) and load them into your Model X2 using the editor software. The Model X2 is also compatible with MOOER’s GIR/GNR cab sim files as well as other major third-party impulse response filetypes.
