For many years now I’ve been a huge fan of IK Multimedia’s AmpliTube range of amp/effect/cabinet simulators. AmpliTube 3 is still my go-to plug-in even after years of reviewing anything and everything. In fact, at this very moment I’m getting to know AmpliTube: MESA/Boogie for a review, and it’s once again demonstrating how incredibly flexible and detailed the AmpliTube universe is. And now IK Multimedia has announced AmpliTube 4, with some really advanced new features and a suite of new British-inspired amplifiers, including one based on the legendary Marshall JMP-1 tube MIDI preamp! And something I’ve been hoping for for quite a while: an effects loop insert point between the preamp and power amp. Awesome. Below is the video and press release.

New IK Multimedia SampleTank 3 Libraries

Okay, this is freaky because just the other day I sat down with my current drum sample library and started tweaking some sounds to try to get something closer to Neil Peart’s drum sound on Rush’s Snakes And Arrows album. And I was using IK Multimedia’s excellent T-Racks for EQ and compression. And now I open my email and boom: IK Multimedia releases Neil Peart Drums. Using Peart’s Snakes And Arrows kit. It’s a sign!!!

PRESS RELEASE: IK Multimedia is pleased to announce the availability of 3 exciting new exclusive sound libraries for SampleTank 3 for Mac/PC: the Neil Peart Drums, Billy Cobham Drums and American Acoustic Guitar collections.
