IK Multimedia Announces AmpliTube iRig
IK Multimedia has announced AmpliTube iRig, a mobile guitar amp and effects rig system for Apple’s iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad platforms. The iRig appears to be a mod of the company’s Stealth Plug product.
AmpliTube iRig is a combination of an instrument interface adapter for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad mobile devices, and the new AmpliTube for iPhone software for guitar and bass. With AmpliTube iRig, you can plug your guitar into your iPhone and jam anywhere with IK’s guitar and bass tones.
» Real-time guitar and bass mobile multi-FX app
» Full rig made by 3 simultaneous stompboxes + amp + cabinet + mic
» 10 Stomps, 5 Amps, 5 Cabinets, 2 Mics available
» Import and play along with songs and backing tracks with real-time effects
» 36 presets can be saved/recalled on the fly
» Includes tuner/metronome
» Same low-latency as Mac/PC system
Simply plug the iRig interface into your iPhone, plug your instrument into the appropriate input jack, plug in your headphones, amp or powered speakers, download AmpliTube free for iPhone and start playing. You’ll have at your fingertips the sound and control of three simultaneous stompbox effects plus an amplifier plus cabinet plus microphone just like a traditional guitar or bass stage rig. Add amps and effects as you need them — you can expand your rig with up to 10 stomps, 5 amps, 5 cabinets and 2 microphones in the AmpliTube iRig app custom shop.
The iRig is the ideal companion not only to the AmpliTube for iPhone app, but also works with any other recording, processing or tuning app. Plus, you can also use the iRig with line level signal sources such as synthesizers, keyboards or mixers.
At the core of the AmpliTube iRig System is AmpliTube, an entire guitar/bass rig at your fingertips, comprised of three simultaneous stompbox effects, an amp-head plus cabinet and a microphone. With AmpliTube fully loaded, you will be able to choose between 5 amp models (clean, crunch, lead, metal, bass) with full tone and drive controls, 10 stompbox effects (delay, flanger, phaser, overdrive, distortion, filter, wah, fuzz, octaver, chorus), 5 cabinets and 2 microphones (dynamic and condenser).
Plus, AmpliTube for iPhone features a chromatic digital tuner and a metronome. You can also import and play along with songs or backing tracks, and create, save and recall up to 36 presets on the fly.
IK Multimedia’s AmpliTube iRig costs $39.99 / €29.99. AmpliTube for iPhone will be available in 3 versions from the iTunes App Store: Free, LE ($2.99/€2.39) and FULL ($19.99/€15.99). More information on IK Multimedia AmpliTube iRig.
