IK Multimedia AmpliTube for iPad

July 22, 2010

AmpliTube for iPad is now available for download from the iTunes App Store. With the currently available iRig interface adapter, this combination allows for a portable multitouch tone-modeling solution for guitar and bass players.

AmpliTube for iPad offers the same selection of 23 amps and effects models from the AmpliTube for iPhone version, visible and accessible by an enhanced interface with all the controls immediately available in one screen. AmpliTube for iPad offers the ability to build a virtual stage rig bigger than what can be found in traditional portable effect processors; the four simultaneous stompbox effects (giving one more than the iPhone version) allows for more sonic creativity and can be combined with an amp-head plus cabinet, and a microphone.

There are up to five amp models from which to choose (clean, crunch, lead, metal, bass) that offer full tonal and drive controls, 11 stompbox effects (delay, flanger, phaser, overdrive, distortion, filter, wah, fuzz, octaver, chorus and noise filter), five cabinets (1x12-inch, 2x12-inch, 4x12-inch A and B, 1x15-inch) and two microphones (dynamic and condenser). All rigs can be organized/recalled on the fly with the available 36 presets.

Additional functions like the tuner, metronome and backing track player in the AmpliTube for iPad version app improve guitar practice, performance and playing skills. During play, the tuner remains engaged for tuning at any time without the musician taking their hands from the guitar. The backing-track player with loop-points is also included to allow the import of audio files as backing tracks to play with, plus the included metronome has the ability to keep the player in time during practice and play-along.

AmpliTube for iPad is now available in 2 versions from the iTunes App store: AmpliTube Free (three effects, one amp+cabinet, two mics), AmpliTube (11 effects, five amps+cabinets, two mics for $19.99).
