IK Multimedia release the Total Guitar & Bass Gear Bundle 02/07/08
IK Multimedia has announced the release of the Total Guitar & Bass Gear Bundle, IKâ€™s definitive collection of award-winning â€œPowered by AmpliTubeâ€� products with 5 analog-modeled Amp and FX plug-ins: AmpliTube 2, Ampeg SVX, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, AmpliTube Metal and AmpliTube X-GEAR, bundled together into what they believe is the ultimate guitar and bass gear collection for both studio and live use.
Hereâ€™s IK Multimediaâ€™s own description of the bundleâ€¦
A massive collection of superior-sounding models with more gear than any other package, giving musicians and producers convenient access to the widest range of guitar and bass amp and FX models on the market: 150 ultra-realistic gear models, 51 stompboxes, 26 Preamp and EQ models, 11 Power amps, 33 cabinets, 11 mics and 23 rack effects to create their dream tones.
5 products that work together as the ultimate software/plug-in modular amp and FX system. For the first time, thanks to AmpliTube X-GEAR, all the included â€œPowered by AmpliTubeâ€� products can be opened together in a single software/plug-in environment, so you can mix and match elements from all of the included gear models to build a true, custom mega-rig. The Total Guitar & Bass Gear Bundle offers a degree of flexibility and variety in a modular system thatâ€™s completely unmatched by any other product today, and which also allows for further expandability with future products for a system that can grow over time.
A suite of guitar and bass amps and FX software you can use in the studio and live on stage. Not only is this suite of products perfect for the producer looking for the ultimate collection of gear for his studio, but thanks to StompIO (IKâ€™s revolutionary new USB floor controller/audio interface), the software can be totally controlled live with the same feeling of using an advanced multi-FX system, allowing you to have the features of a high-end custom pedal board, and much more. Portability, expandability, customization and ease of use make this combination of software and hardware the most advanced guitar and bass amp and FX system to date for stage use. For less demanding live applications, thereâ€™s also built-in MIDI control of all software parameters, allowing you to use any traditional MIDI controller with easy set up thanks to the included MIDI learn feature.
