IK Multimedia Announces StealthPlug – Guitar Amp/SoundCard Cable

IK Multimedia announced the StealthPlug, a cable USB audio card designed specifically for guitarists. StealthPlug looks like a copperhead snake and provides an easy solution to plug any guitar into a computer. Boxed with virtual guitar amp and FX processing software of AmpliTube Live and AmpliTube LE, the StealthPlug is both an audio card and a virtual amp with effects, for live play and recording.

The complete mobile solution for playing, recording and practicing live anywhere! The StealthPlug is so compact that guitarists can jam anywhere with a laptop or use it within their preferred sequencer anywhere in their home studio. The combination of StealthPlug with AmpliTube LIVE/LE software makes a complete portable guitar amp and effects modeling solution, both as a stand-alone application and as a plug-in, for any Mac/PC laptop, desktop or rack computer. It also gives Native Instrument’s Guitar Rig 2 some competition.

AmpliTube Live and LE allow you to combine 3 different Preamp models and related EQs with three accurately emulated cabinets, so you can precisely craft a wide palette of guitar sounds ranging from clean, to crunch, to lead. Up to 128 fully customizable presets are available and also a chromatic tuner is included, to stay in tune under any conditions. Guitarists can record their guitar tracks with AmpliTube LE, fully integrating it into their preferred sequencer as a plug-in for every format (RTAS, HTDM, VST, DX, AU).
