Check the update log here:

Ampero Firmware Version 3.0

Precaution

This Ampero V3.0 firmware update is Ampero’s major update containing more powerful features (e.g. MANAGABLE SIGNAL CHAIN), optimized system performance and bug fixes. We recommend all Ampero users to execute this update for the best possible user experience.
 
IMPORTANT - Use V3.0 firmware with Ampero Editor V1.2.1 ONLY. The patches of the earlier firmware versions are now not compatible with this V3.0 firmware due to the new features and fatal changes, which means, after updating firmware, ALL YOUR PATCHES IN YOUR AMPERO WILL BE REPLACED BY THE NEW FACTORY/USER PATCHES, AND YOUR CUSTOM IR FILES WILL ALSO BE CLEARED.
Please be sure to export the patches you want to keep by using earlier Ampero Editor software before updating. After updating, you can import them via new Ampero Editor (The Editor will automatically convert your old patch files to new version so that you can use them with V3.0 firmware).
If you accidentally updated to the new firmware before backing up your patches, to get the old patches back, you can roll back to earlier firmware versions (load earlier firmware files when updating) before you edit/save patches with new firmware.


New Features

1.    You can now manage your signal chain in Edit menu by double clicking on a module
2.    You can connect external footswitch controller to EXP 2 (EXP 2/FS) jack – EXP 2/FS settings added in Global menu for setting footswitch functions and EXP 2/FS jack functions

4.    You can now control USB recording level (Global > USB Audio)
