IK’s AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix Now Shipping
IK Multimedia has announced that the AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix that we told you about in January is now shipping. Based on IKâ€™s AmpliTube 2 and made in cooperation with Authentic Hendrix, LLC., 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 a vintage collection of stomp, amp, cabinet, and effect models that made a legendary sound.
Though it shares the same easy-to-use functionality as AmpliTube 2, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrixâ„¢ offers over 20 new models never included before, such as models based on the Vox Wah V846, Maestro FuzzTone, Univox Uni-Vibe, several Roger Mayer fuzz stomp pedals, the Marshall 1959 JTM100 Super Lead, the Fender Twin Reverb and Dual Showman amplifiers and other rare vintage gear.
AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix features 9 vintage stomp effects, 4 vintage amp models, 7 cabinets, and 5 mics, putting a complete collection of extremely expensive and hard-to-find gear right at your fingertips, from rare and highly sought-after stomps such as the Wah used by Hendrix, which became his signature sound in masterpiece tunes like Voodoo Child, and a model based on the Maestro FuzzTone, whoâ€™s sound is best recognized from the popular Rolling Stones hit (I Canâ€™t Get No) Satisfaction, to Amp-head models that cover the entire range of amps that Hendrix used with The Experience, both in the studio and live. All the matching cabinets of the included Amp-heads are featured in the selection of 7 available cabinets. The cabinets were accurately modeled 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.
