AmpliTubeÂ® FenderÂ® is the only official FenderÂ® guitar/bass amp and FX software suite, made by IK Multimedia in cooperation with music icon FenderÂ® Musical Instruments Corporation. With a collection of 45 pieces of gear, including some the most sought-after classic and modern FenderÂ® amps (Twin ReverbÂ®, '59 BassmanÂ® LTD, Super-Sonicâ„¢, Metalheadâ„¢ and many others), cabinets, stompboxes and rack effects, AmpliTube FenderÂ® sets the new standard for software amplifiers. From guitar to bass, and from country to blues, rock, punk and metal--whatever style you play--AmpliTube FenderÂ® is the only amp suite that gives you the world's most influential guitar and bass tones right on your desktop.
AmpliTube FenderÂ® is the result of years of intense research and development by the tone gurus at FenderÂ® and is handcrafted by the software and audio engineers at IK Multimedia. Seldom has there been such close cooperation between two leaders in their respective fields, with the goal of producing the most advanced and realistic-sounding software recreation of the world's most renowned amplifiers and effects. The results have been amazing, as Fender's Shane Nicholas, senior marketing manager for guitar amps said:
"An electric guitar is nothing without amp tone, and FenderÂ® amplifiers are the standard by which great amp tones are measured. We're confident that the thrill of plugging into a great tube amp will never die, but we are proud to give digital recording enthusiasts the opportunity to discover and utilize many of the best FenderÂ® tones, old and new, with the convenience of PC recording. Unlike other guitar modeling software, IK Multimedia developed the realistic sounds of the AmpliTube FenderÂ® edition with the master tone-team at FenderÂ® Musical Instruments. From the legendary Tweed Deluxeâ„¢ to the modern high-gain Super-Sonicâ„¢, this is the real-deal palette of tones you need to make great music in the digital domain."
The extremely accurate FenderÂ® tones achieved by this collaboration, together with the large variety of gear included, covers the widest range of tonal palettes and makes AmpliTube FenderÂ® the ideal choice for those who are recording guitar for the first time or for DAW users who demand nothing less than tonal perfection.
