IK Multimedia Announces StealthPlug CS & StealthPedal CS Packages
IK Multimedia has released two new guitar-oriented packages, the StealthPlug CS and StealthPedal CS Custom Shop Systems. These two new packages provide players with an audio interface for their computer and AmpliTube Custom Shop, the Guitar & Bass tone shaping software system.
The Tone Machine — AmpliTube Custom Shop:
The core of the Custom Shop package is the AmpliTube Custom Shop software, IK’s tone software that allows players to build virtual guitar rigs one piece at a time with gear models from top manufacturers. It comes complete with 24 pieces of gear, a digital chromatic tuner and two complete guitar/bass signal chains for mono and/or stereo operation. The AmpliTube Custom Shop is based upon AmpliTube 3, the premier Guitar/Bass tone software found in recording studios around the world. It has the same operation and feature set, and can be used as a plug-in for virtually every DAW (digital audio workstation) or as a standalone tone machine for live performance and recording. It also sports a full-featured 4-track recorder for capturing ideas quickly and easily.
The AmpliTube Custom Shop offers gear from the top makers, and is open 24/7: Fender, Ampeg, Orange, Soldano, T-Rex, Seymour Duncan, Groove Tubes and more… With AmpliTube Custom Shop, players now have access to every piece of gear from all AmpliTube collections: AmpliTube 3, AmpliTube Fender, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, AmpliTube Metal and Ampeg SVX; plus they’ll find additional pieces and collections of gear from the world’s top manufacturers. IK is constantly adding new manufacturers and new models to the collections.
The StealthPlug USB Audio Interface Cable:
The StealthPlug CS Custom Shop features the StealthPlug 1/4″ to USB cable interface, and the new AmpliTube Custom Shop software plus 50 gear credits to use in the AmpliTube Custom Shop online store.
The StealthPlug Audio interface cable is a high quality, easy-to-use and simple audio interface cable that plugs your guitar right into your computer. It’s a 9-foot cable with a 1/4″ instrument jack on one end, an inline analog to digital converter with volume controls and a headphone jack, and a USB plug on the other end.
The StealthPedal USB Audio Interface and Controller
StealthPedal CS is the next step up for mobile guitar and bass players. It features the StealthPedal wah-style USB audio interface and controller, plus AmpliTube Custom Shop software and 100 gear credits to use in the AmpliTube Custom Shop online store.
The StealthPedal serves two purposes: getting your guitar signal to and from your laptop, and controlling software knobs from the floor while you play. And all the magic happens in a nice compact wah-style housing – something already very familiar to players. The StealthPedal features operational sample rates up to 96kHz providing pristine sound quality from your guitar or bass. Plus, it features smart jacks that will auto-detect and adjust for different types of instrument inputs. StealthPedal is not only great for guitar and basses, but also works with keyboards, drum machines and other audio input devices.
