NAMM 2011: IK Multimedia Announces AmpliTube Fender App

January 13, 2011

IK Multimedia announces AmpliTube Fender, a full-featured tone guitar rig app with built-in recording studio, for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

Derived from the award-winning desktop version of AmpliTube Fender, the app offers Fender amp models: the '65 Deluxe Reverb, the Super-Sonic, the '65 Twin Reverb, the '59 Bassman LTD, and the Pro Junior. It also has six Fender stompbox models: Tape Delay, Compressor, the Fender Blender, Phaser, Overdrive, and Noise Filter.

The AmpliTube Fender signal chain allows the user to build full Fender rigs with three simultaneous stompbox effects on iPhone/iPod touch (and four on iPad) running into an amplifier head, speaker cabinet, and microphone. Each element of the tone is individually selectable, with fully operational controls for ultimate "tweak-ability." Plus, existing AmpliTube app users can add all of the components of AmpliTube Fender into their current app, incorporating that famous Fender tone into their current sound.

The AmpliTube Fender apps also feature a robust practicing tool which allows the user to import audio material for playing along and changing its tempo without affecting the pitch. The SpeedTrainer feature provides the ability to slow down backing tracks (-50 percent) to learn complex riffs, or speed them up (+200 percent) for practicing playing skills. Songs and backing tracks or loops can be loaded directly from the iPod library on the iOS device or from the computer.

AmpliTube Fender also comes with a built-in single-track recorder with re-amping ability, expandable to a full-featured 4-track recorder on iPhone or an 8-track recorder on iPad, both with master effects section. Ideas can be quickly captured by recording performances that can be shared by exporting high-quality audio files or M4As. And an entire band can be recorded, or full songs and compositions can be produced directly in AmpliTube Fender.]

The AmpliTube Fender apps for iPhone and iPad cost $14.99 each and will soon be available on the iTunes app store. For more information, visit the AmpliTube Fender product page.
