Amplifier and effects models from Soldano, Ampeg and T-Rex are now available à la carte inside the new 2.6 version 13/09/12
IK Multimedia has released AmpliTube 2.6 for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad. They tell us that this special update includes the availability of 5 new gear models from some of the world's top vintage and modern amplifier and effects manufacturers: Soldano, Ampeg and T-Rex.
The release of AmpliTube 2.6 for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad coincides with the shipping of IK Multimedia's newest mobile interface, iRig STOMP - a stompbox style mobile guitar interface (based upon the iRig guitar interface adapter) - providing a stage-ready solution that can be integrated into a player's pedalboard and connected directly to amplifier and PA systems.
Here's more details in IK Multimedia's own words...
"AmpliTube for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad is a complete guitar/bass rig and recording studio that allows players to jam anywhere with world-class tone. It replicates a traditional guitar signal chain with pedalboards, amplifier heads, cabinets, microphone models and an expandable multi-track recording studio.
On the amplifier side, AmpliTube 2.6 adds the incredibly powerful and solid voicing of the Soldano "Super Lead Overdrive" SLO-100 Watt head, one of the most celebrated boutique guitar heads of all time and the heart and soul of many rock, metal and electric blues player sounds since 1987. For that big round sound of Motown, AmpliTube 2.6 now offers to bass players the Ampeg B-15R Portaflex "Flip Top" model.
For pedal junkies, satisfaction comes from three new offerings: the T-Rex Engineering "Moller" Classic Overdrive, the AmpliTube Metal Distortion pedal for extreme gain and sustain and the AmpliTube "Big Pig" Distortion pedal featuring tones from smooth sustain and compression to heavy "buzzsaw" distortion modelled on classic vintage must-have pedals.
These models, combined with the huge selection of available gear from top-tier brands like Fender and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame artist Slash, continue to elevate AmpliTube as the best-sounding premium guitar/bass tone and recording solution for mobile players. With over 5 million downloads, AmpliTube sets the standard and is the leader for the portable guitar and recording studio app category." Pricing and Availability:

For those who may not know, and believe me this is from painful experience, IK Multimedia ALWAYS run sales of their stuff in the App store with typically 50% off, wait a few weeks and watch the in app purchases be sold for less.
