Sonoma Wire Works has introduced GuitarTone, a free iOS App which they say is inspired by the ultimate collection of guitar amps and effect pedals. Sonoma created tonal interpretations of essential vintage and custom amps, pedals and microphones, and assembled them into GuitarTone. GuitarTone includes three free amps ('60 Slant, Custom and Tweed Blues) and three free effects (UltraPhase, Drive+ and Va-Room), with additional tones available for $9.99 per 12-pack.
Sonoma's GuitarJack iOS audio interface activates $19.98 worth of GuitarTone amps and effects for free while connected. Sonoma say that GuitarTone will be added to their FourTrack and StudioTrack Apps soon, allowing musicians to capture great sounding guitar tone in those multitrack recording Apps.
