IK Multimedia Ships AmpliTube 2
IK Multimedia is proud to announce that the highly anticipated AmpliTube 2.0 is finally shipping. A major upgrade and a completely redesigned new application, AmpliTube 2 software is the follow-up sequel to the most popular guitar amp and FX plug-in on the market, raising the standard to an unprecedented level of high-quality emulation and extreme flexibility.
AmpliTube 2 is a complete guitar amp and effects processing plug-in, and includes everything you need to create superior modeled, infinite guitar tones. It offers the most comprehensive collection of modern and vintage guitar Amp and Effects available in a plug-in, with 14 Preamps and 14 Amp EQs, 7 Power Amps, 16 Cabinets, 6 Microphone models with 4 placement options each, 21 Stomp Effects, 11 Rack Effects and more! All this with 5 separate, neatly organized, modules laid down the same way a guitarist expects to find them: Tuner, Stomp, Amp Head, Mic'd Cabinet and Rack Effects, on 2 series/parallel guitar rigs.
IK's new DSM™ (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) technology is the workhorse behind AmpliTube 2's unique sound. DSM™ offers the capability to accurately model the real sonic qualities of hardware gear to provide superior tones. Over 80 guitar gear emulations are featured in AmpliTube 2, with popular amp models based on Fender®, Vox®, Marshall®, THD®, Supro® and more. Also, get the sounds of rare vintage gear, with Stomp Box effects modeled after Arbiter® FuzzFace®, Ibanez® Tube Screamer®, MXR® Dynacomp™, MXR® Phase100™, Electro Harmonix® Memory Man™ and more.
AmpliTube 2's exclusive technology models each section of the amplifier separately (Preamp, Amp EQ and Power Amp) allowing you to be able to build your own custom amp by mixing and matching the components with over 20,000 different amp combinations! Create a staggering amount of custom gear, including amp combinations that could not be possible in the real world, and create your own unique guitar tones.
Offering a starting point of some of the most needed guitar rig set ups, AmpliTube 2 comes with over 400 different programmed Guitar Amp and FX preset combinations. AmpliTube 2 also includes presets made by several famous guitarists and avid AmpliTube users, such as: George Pajon Jr. (Black Eyed Peas), George Marinelli (Bonnie Raitt), Howard Pearl (Destiny's Child), Tyler Sweet (Robert Randolph), Soren Reif, Pierre Jaconelli, Andrew Synowiec and Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer).
