IK Multimedia Upgrades AmpliTube To Version 3
IK Multimedia has upgraded AmpliTube to version 3 with over 160 modeled pieces of vintage and modern gear available in one package.
AmpliTube 3 contains over 160 pieces of gear including models from several choice vintage collections and modern-day workhorses. You’ll get 51 individual stompboxes and effects, 31 amplifier, preamp & power sections, 46 speaker cabinet models, 15 high-end stage and studio mics, and 17 post-amp rack effects. Plus, with the new AmpliTube 3 open architecture, you can add more packages as you need them, like AmpliTube Fender and Ampeg SVX. With IK’s proprietary VRM (Volumetric Response Modeling) technology, you can add ultra-accurate rotating speaker effects, free dual mic placements, plus room ambience and response to customize and craft your tone.
Version 3’s new creative effects let you create exciting, dynamic sounds, and the new drag & drop effects’ configuration feature lets you quickly experiment with effects in the signal chain to get that totally unique sound.
