AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Shipping in April

IK Multimedia is pleased to announce that the highly anticipated AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ will be shipping in April. AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix is the first authentic software recreation of the complete guitar amp and effects rig of Jimi Hendrix available in a single product, offering all the rare vintage stomps, amps, cabinets and mics that contributed to make Hendrix’s legendary sound.

Based on IK’s AmpliTube 2 and made in cooperation with Authentic Hendrix, the official family-owned Hendrix foundation, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix is the first guitar amp and effects modeling software focusing on Jimi Hendrix that can be used not only to recreate all the authentic tones of popular Hendrix tunes, but because the modeled gear in this product is in such high demand by guitarists, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix is a fantastic tool for many styles of modern rock music from hard rock to punk, alternative, progressive and pop.

IK Multimedia has gone the extra mile in accurately modeling all the most important components of the Hendrix rig, not only using proprietary AmpliTube 2 DSM™ (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) technology at its best, but by collecting all the original vintage stomps, amplifiers and cabinets of the same period and fine tuning the software emulations by ear with accurate craftsmanship to achieve incredibly realistic and authentic modeling results.

AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix features 9 vintage stomp effects, 4 vintage amp models, and 7 cabinets, putting a complete collection of extremely expensive and hard-to-find gear right at your fingertips.

Among the stomps included are models based on the Wah used by Jimi Hendrix (which became his signature sound in masterpiece tunes like “Voodoo Child”), various models of highly collectible fuzz and distortion pedals, plus rare vintage effects modulation models such as a model based on the unique Uni-vibe™ (a chorus/rotary speaker effects) and more.

The 4 included Amp-head models cover the entire range of amps that Hendrix used with The Experience, both in the studio and live, from the British-made 100W amplifier Hendrix generally is associated with to other rare vintage models of US-made amplifiers used by Jimi between ’65 and ’70.

All the matching cabinets of the Amp-heads mentioned above are included in the selection of 7 available cabinets, and more. The cabinets were accurately modeled, equipping them with the same vintage speakers said to be among Jimi’s preferred ones, and recorded with 5 vintage microphones, including condenser, dynamic and ribbon microphones. Also included are 4 rack effects (Rotary Speaker, Stereo Reverb, Parametric EQ, and Tube Compressor), increasing the tonal flexibility of the product and allowing you to sculpt the sound even further.

Whether you want to get that classic Jimi Hendrix tone or treat yourself to the most desirable collection of vintage effects and amp gear ever offered in software, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix is the right choice for any guitarist.
