IK Multimedia announces AmpliTube Fender For iPhone and iPad 13/01/11
IK Multimedia has announced AmpliTube Fender for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, described by them as full featured tone guitar rig apps with built-in recording studios offering the legendary Fender tone designed and developed in close cooperation with Fender. Here's the rest of what IK has to say...
The AmpliTube Fender app, at its core, is all about pure Fender tone. It was developed with careful guidance and critical tone testing from the tone gurus at Fender to ensure the authenticity of the sound. Derived from the award-winning desktop version of AmpliTube Fender, the app offers 5 Fender amp models - the '65 Deluxe Reverb™, the Super-Sonic™, the '65 Twin Reverb™, the '59 Bassman™ LTD and the Pro Junior™, and 6 Fender stompbox models - Tape Delay, Compressor, the Fender Blender™, Phaser, Overdrive and Noise Filter.
The unique AmpliTube Fender signal chain allows the user to build full Fender rigs with 3 simultaneous stompbox effects on iPhone/iPod touch and 4 on iPad, running into an amplifier head, speaker cabinet and microphone. Each element of the tone is individually selectable, with fully operational controls for ultimate 'tweak-ability'. Plus, existing AmpliTube app users can add all of the components of AmpliTube Fender into their current app, incorporating that famous Fender tone into their current sound.
The AmpliTube Fender apps also feature a robust practicing tool which allows the user to import audio material for playing-along, and changing its tempo without affecting the pitch. The SpeedTrainer feature provides the ability to slow down backing tracks (-50%) to learn complex riffs, or speed them up (+200%) for practising playing skills. Songs and backing tracks or loops can be loaded directly from the iPod library on the iOS device or from the computer.
AmpliTube Fender also comes with a built-in single track recorder with re-amping ability, expandable to a full-featured 4-Track recorder on iPhone or an 8-Track recorder on iPad, both with master effects section. Ideas can be quickly captured by recording performances that can be shared by exporting high quality audio files or M4As. And an entire band can be recorded, or full songs and compositions can be produced directly in AmpliTube Fender. AmpliTube Fender features:
