IK Multimedia Introduces Ampeg Collection 2 for Amplitube
IK Multimedia has announced the Ampeg Collection 2 for their AmpliTube and AmpliTube CS apps for iPhone and iPad. The new set includes modeling software for three new matching amps and cabs: the SVT-VR amp with SVT-810 AV cab, the V-4B amp with SVT-212 AV cab, and the Heritage B-15N amp and matching 115 cab.
Each model is made to recreate the sounds and controls of their real-life counterparts. The SVT-VR simulates a vintage reissue of an early 1970s “Blue Line” SVT head. “The preamp stage, power section, and even rocker switches emulate the exact signal path, tone, and vibe of the original rock ‘n’ roll workhorse, from its input jack all the way to its six 6550 output tubes,” IK Multimedia writes. Similarly, the V-4B recreates the 1971 100-watt all-tube head. The Heritage B-15N models feature the circuit paths of both a 1964 and a 1966 B-15 down to the Baxandall EQ and 6SL7 octal preamp tubes with a bias switch to follow “each years’ distinctive bias methodology.”
The Ampeg Collection 2 is available now as an in-app purchase for IK Multimedia’s AmpliTube or AmpliTube CS apps for iPhone and iPad. It costs $14.99.
