Gear Watch: AmpliTube Fender
IK Multimedia and Fender Musical Instruments Corporation have announced the release of AmpliTube Fender version 1.1, a free downloadable update for all registered users of AmpliTube Fender and available for purchase by new users.
AmpliTube Fender is a guitar/bass effects suite that allows you to get real Fender sounds into your computer for recording.
So what’s new in version 1.1? You have:
- A classic stomp Compressor, based upon the Compressor in the Fender Cyber-Twin® SE, provides a more consistent and higher input signal at the amp input stage with four “levels” of compression/gain available.
- A New Wah pedal, based on the Wah effect in the Fender Cyber-Twin® SE, offers two “wah” voicing options, the “Cryin’” and “McCoy,” and provides detailed control of the amount, effect frequency range and output level of the effect.
- A New Tremolo pedal, based upon the Fender Amp tremolo circuit, provides that world-famous Fender Amp tremolo effect in a convenient stompbox, giving players more front-end flexibility for tone shaping, plus adding the magic of the Fender Tremolo to any non-tremolo amp model.
- A New Rack Unit based upon the Fender® ‘63 Reverb Tank now allows for post-amplification reverb application, giving models without reverb the rich, lush reverb effects for which Fender is famous.
These additions bring the software up to 49 gear models consisting of 12 amps, 12 cabinets, 9 Fender stomp effects, 9 mics and 7 rack effects for guitar and bass. Get the download and other information from IK Multimedia’s web site.
