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.

Pro FET by Ignite Amps.

Distortion modeling of a hardware pedal made by Ignite.

ProFET, Ignite Amp's entry in the 2018 KVR Developer Challenge, gets a six-minute Digital Guitarist workout. It was the first place winner in the contest.

Drop it in front of a clean guitar amp for instant metal tones.

Professional GUI.

Easy on the CPU.

Nice sounding distortion made for a particular genre's tone.

Within that limited frame, ProFET provides nice tone shaping with a 4-band EQ and some nuance on the transients with the "shape" switch.

There are a ton of different free and paid distortions, each with its own personality. I'll do some more vids on them probably. Try out the demos and freebies and pick the one that suits your ears best. This is a good one if it fits your style.

Sound is fantastic right out of the box. Used on guitars with distortion already and just added more fatness.

Somethings to consider in future - factory presets.

Amazing on bass synth! -- only missing a wet/dry knob just to dial it back a bit. Could be next to output.

Thank you.

A great and simple distortion for guitar.
Available all desired formats.
Beautiful UI that inspires.
Few tone shaping options, but they all make their own huge difference.
Shape knob renders a tube screamer useless.
Ability to make own presets, routing, oversampling...

Good job.

Absolutely dope pedal, with all the needed features to shape the sound. I second the other comment saying that the Shape knob somehow replaces the need for a TubeScreamer. For people who like the heavy sound, mostly.
