IK Multimedia AmpliTube 3 Now Shipping

March 1, 2010

Now shipping, AmpliTube 3 features more than 160 gear models (with nearly 100 added models); 51 Stompbox effects, 31 amps, 46 cabinets, 15 studio mics and 17 rack effects; 30 brand-new models; 70 re-worked models from packages like AmpliTube Metal™ and AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™; a new collection of bass gear models; can be directly expanded with packages like AmpliTube Fender™, Ampeg® SVX™ and future packages; and new preset-management and keyword system to organize and quickly recall the library of included and custom preset tones.

A new cabinet module inside provides double-miking per cabinet, with freely movable microphones thanks to IK''s VRM™ (Volumetric Response Modeling) technology. All models in AmpliTube 3 have been ultra-accurately “remastered” with the company's new third-generation modeling technology (the same found in AmpliTube Fender™), using IK''s DSM™ technology (Dynamic Saturation Modeling), painstakingly compared with the originals in “A/B” style. New impulse-based reverbs are now used in the entire chain, from spring reverb to room ambience, and a new rotary speaker module allows for accurate emulation of these types of cabinets.

AmpliTube 3 is now shipping as VST, RTAS and AU plug-in formats, and also as stand-alone software for Mac OS X and Windows, currently available in the following versions and MSRP prices: AmpliTube 3, $349.99; AmpliTube 3 Crossgrade, $269.99 (available to any IK registered user); AmpliTube 3 Upgrade, $199.99 (available to all previous AmpliTube 2, AmpliTube Metal, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™, AmpliTube Fender™ or Ampeg® SVX™ registered users); and AmpliTube 3 Pedal, $399.99 (AmpliTube 3 bundled with StealthPedal™ USB/MIDI controller and audio interface).
