WNAMM07: Sound Like Jimi Hendrix


IK Multimedia have announced AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition, the first authentic software recreation of the complete guitar amp and effects rig of Jimi Hendrix, one of the greatest and most influential guitarists of all time.
Together with Authentic Hendrix, the official Jimi Hendrix foundation, IK is bringing out the first guitar amp and effect modeling software focusing on Jimi Hendrix. They say not only can it be used to recreate authentic tones of popular Hendrix tunes, but that it is also a fantastic tool for many styles of modern rock from hard rock to punk, alternative, progressive and pop.
IK say that AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition includes models of extremely rare and collectible vintage stomp boxes, amp heads, and cabinets, putting the sound of expensive and hard to find gear at your fingertips. The Jimi Hendrix Edition can also expand the available stomps, amps and cabinets inside AmpliTube 2 - By integrating the two products users can double the amount of vintage stomp box models inside the AmpliTube 2 rig and add some in-demand and collectible amps and cabinets. IK believe that, whether you want to get that classic Jimi Hendrix tone or treat yourself to the most desirable collection of vintage effects and amp gear ever offered in software, the AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition is the ultimate add on to AmpliTube 2.
The Jimi Hendrix Edition is powered by the AmpliTube 2 engine featuring DSM (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) for achieving the most accurate emulation of guitar amps and effects. IK say they have also gone the extra mile in accurately modeling all the most important components of the Hendrix by collecting the original stomps, amplifiers and cabinets of the same period and fine tuning the software emulations by ear with precise craftsmanship to achieve incredibly realistic results.
