The new version of AmpliTube adds a complete multi-track studio as well as new gear models, really unlocking the power of the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. Here’s the press release: Read More …

AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix For iOS. Cool.

Unknown

I have a lot of affection for AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix. It was the first amp sim I ever reviewed (for Mixdown magazine), and I have memories of sitting in the dining room (which was also an office and guitar room) plugging in my axe and trying out as many Jimi riffs and licks as I could remember or muster. We’ve moved house since then and I don’t usually have to riff out at the dining room table any more (well, I did a couple of weeks ago but that’s a long and boring story). But with AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix now being available for iOS, we’ll all be able to get our Jimi on no matter where we are. Here’s the press release… Read More …

NAMM 2012: IK Multimedia iRig Stomp

Now this looks cool. To be perfectly honest I wasn’t 100% happy with the original AmpliTube iRig – I bought one from my buddies at World of Music and and it was certainly handy, but the feedback and crosstalk issues meant you couldn’t really turn it up loud enough to rock. And cranking it up loud is part of what makes rock fun! As a result I found myself looking around for other options, which I felt pretty awful about because the IK Multimedia folks are awesome and AmpliTube is one of the best things you can ever do for your guitar in a digital environment.

Well IK has solved that problem and made a more stage-friendly and roadworthy unit in the iRig Stomp. It can go on your pedalboard, it has an active circuit to improve the headroom (especially when used with high-gain amplifiers in the AmpliTube app) and this reduces feedback and crosstalk when recording. Awesome! It can be used inline with other effects pedals, or directly connected to amplifiers or PA systems using regular 1/4″ guitar cables, with no need for adapters.
