IK Multimedia has announced that its new MAX series of complete bundles are available now. They say that AmpliTube® MAX, SampleTank® MAX, T-RackS® MAX and Total Studio MAX let musicians grab a whole collection of amazing gear while saving up to 90% off what it would cost to get each piece of gear individually. Here's the entire story in their own words...
AmpliTube MAX is the ultimate guitar and bass tone studio with over 300 pieces of gear. T-RackS is a comprehensive professional mixing and mastering suite featuring 33 of the most sought after audio processors. SampleTank MAX is the most powerful version of the ultimate sound and groove workstation with over 50GB of sound content. And Total Studio MAX ties everything together by offering all three MAX bundles plus Miroslav Philharmonik 2™, the most emotionally expressive orchestral collection ever. All four bundles offer stunning power for some seriously low prices.
AmpliTube MAX - Maximum guitar and bass tone
The AmpliTube MAX bundle gives guitar and bass players the biggest collection of gear available - over 300 pieces of tone sculpting amps, stompboxes and rack effects.

A fully stocked tone studio, it comes with all the gear from AmpliTube 4, AmpliTube 3, AmpliTube MESA/Boogie®, Ampeg® SVX, AmpliTube Fender™, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Edition, AmpliTube Orange®, AmpliTube Slash and more. Plus it comes with all current individual AmpliTube Custom Shop gear that doesn't reside in a collection - gear from Dr. Z®, Z-Vex® Effects, Soldano®, Fulltone® and more. That makes for a collection of over 300 amplifiers, cabinets, stompboxes and more, modelled on some of the most popular name-brand gear of all time.
