    Get ready to have your mind (and ears) blown. IK Multimedia AmpliTube 4, a major upgrade to the world’s most powerful guitar and bass tone studio for Mac/PC, is here and will take you to a level of hyper-realism and customization of tone you never knew possible.

    Overview

    AmpliTube 4 is a guitar and bass tone studio for Mac/PC that works as a standalone application and as a plug-in for your favorite DAW. AmpliTube recreates the entire guitar/bass signal chain from instrument to recording device, and does so in a very realistic and intuitive way. But it also does it in ways you never dreamed possible.

    If you’re new to using computers to get fabulous guitar tone, then you’re in for a treat. If you’re a veteran computer tone-master, well, you’re still in for a treat. AmpliTube pioneered — and leads the way in — guitar amp and effects modeling, and AmpliTube 4 takes it to the outer edges of extreme hyper realism with intuitive familiar tools.

    New Hyper-Realistic Cab Room

    AmpliTube has always been about realism, and now that extreme commitment to accuracy is a part of its completely redesigned cabinet section. The new Cab Room feature is the most advanced cabinet section ever made, giving you a new level of customization and flexibility never before seen in software or reality.

    The cab room now has 5 distinct customization sections: cabinet selection with size adjustment where players can choose the speaker cabinet they’d like to match to the amplifier, individual speaker selection where they can swap out individual speakers, mic selection and placement for finding the speaker “sweet spot”, room selection where players select the surrounding recording environment, and a mixer section that allows players to mix the levels of speaker mics, room ambience, direct amp signal and overall main mix. Never before has such a level of control and customization been available for fine-tuning tones from the speaker section.

    For starters, the cab room is just that — a 3-dimensional speaker cabinet recording space that can be changed depending upon the desired “room” type and effect. Players can choose from a range of room types, from a cavernous “garage” to a full on cabinet “dead” room, and mix the room effect and color into the overall sound.

    Now you can mic up your cabinet with up to two microphones in a full 3D space. AmpliTube 4 comes with 3 microphone, with an additional 15 highly coveted recording microphone models available in the Custom Shop providing a truly hyper-realistic sound capturing environment. The room microphones can also be chosen from the available mics. This, coupled with its swappable speakers, allows for true cabinet miking with full speaker interaction — a digital first. Add in things like room ambience control, a new mixer for the cab section and gorgeous new graphics, and it’s easy to see that the new Cab Section is poised to revolutionize the way guitarists, bass players and other musicians utilize virtual cabinets in their music.

    Now you can swap out individual speakers in your favorite cabinets at will, allowing for creative speaker combinations utilizing the many precision-modeled speakers available. The AmpliTube 4 speaker cabinet section not only accurately reproduces the tonal characteristics of the individual speakers, but also accurately picks up the harmonic interactions between the individual speaker models, the cabinet construction and the room, making it the most realistic speaker cabinet emulation available.

    New Hyper-Realistic Gear — British Amps!

    AmpliTube 4 welcomes 5 new classic amplifier models to the mix representing some of the best British tones from the 70s, 80s and 90s.

    Each amplifier has been modeled from scratch to embody a different aspect of powerfully classic British amplifier design: There’s the Brit 8000, Brit 9000, Red Pig, Brit Silver and Brit Valve-Pre. All of these new amplifiers have been created utilizing the same methods and patented technologies that have made the AmpliTube brand name synonymous with world-class sound, hyper-realistic tone and extreme accuracy.

    These models also bring a new level of realism and sonic accuracy through a new technology that precisely replicates the dynamic interaction between the power amp and the speakers, thus eliminating the “harshness” typically found in the upper frequencies of other software and adding another level of dynamic response and hyper-real feel.

    Acoustic Simulator

    AmpliTube 4 is all about exploring new tonal possibilities and its new “Acoustic Sim” model pedal turns the electric guitar into a hyper-realistic acoustic. It delivers stunning realism and an amazing playing experience that can be tweaked with the onboard controls.

    Players can choose from and blend 3 acoustic body styles and 3 types of top material to sound like a full range of popular acoustic guitars. Now guitarists with AmpliTube 4 will always have at their disposal great acoustic sounds.

    Creative Connections and Effects Placement

    New to the signal path in AmpliTube 4 is an effects “loop” insert slot situated between the preamp and power amp sections and can accommodate up to 4 daisy-chained rack or stomp effects.

    In addition to the new effects loop, any stomp or rack effect can now be placed into any effects slot. This means that stomp boxes can be used in the post “rack” section, and rack effects can be used in any stompbox slot — on any pedalboard or in the effects loop section. This opens the door for even more for creative tweaking and innovative sonic sculpting possibilities.

    8-Track Recorder/DAW

    When used in standalone mode, AmpliTube 4 features a built-in 8-track DAW that makes recording ideas and songs a breeze. Its powerful sequencer-like waveform editing should be immediately familiar to you, making it easy to use it as a sketchpad for new ideas or as a full-featured recording solution on its own.

    Each track features standard treble, mid and bass eq, pan control, level, mute, solo and record enable functions, plus there’s an FX enable button allowing for application of different tone configurations to individual tracks.

    As a learning tool, you can import any audio tracks into the DAW section, define loop points and use AmpliTube’s built-in Speed control to slow down difficult passages without affecting pitch, and use the Pitch control to change keys without affecting speed. This feature is perfect for working out difficult solos or practicing different leads or melodies over a series of chord changes in a backing track.

    A Truly Super Looper

    Rounding out AmpliTube 4’s new feature set is a MIDI controllable 4-track looper.

    Dubbed the Super Looper, it’s a full-featured intuitive 4-part looper that you can use to lay down multi-part backing tracks with speed and ease, then practice leads, chords and melodies over the top.

    Each track has an individual level and pan control so you can adjust them in the “mix” to suit your needs.

    You can activate each track with the click of the mouse, or use a MIDI foot controller like the iRig BlueBoard to activate/deactivate tracks.

    The looper audio can be exported to the hard drive of your computer, then imported into the AmpliTube DAW section, or your favorite sequencer.

    Audio backing material can be imported into the first loop channel for continuous play.

    UltraTuner

    Also stock in AmpliTube 4 is an upgraded tuner section with IK’s patented UltraTuner technology — the most precise digital tuner available with tuning accuracy to 1/100th of a cent. It’s the essential piece of gear that will always make you sound good!

    Get Connected

    To use AmpliTube as a tone machine for guitar or bass, you have to connect your guitar to your computer. You do this with what’s called an “audio interface”. Once connected AmpliTube gives you the exact signal chain you’d use live and/or in studio: tuner —> pedalboards —> amp head preamp —> effects loop —> power amp —> speaker cabs —> mics with room effects —> rack effects. Plus, you can configure two complete rigs and run in stereo.

    Signal Chain

    There are also eight different series/parallel “routing” options available that give you total signal chain control, allowing you to configure tones for every possible playing scenario. You can select and customize different configurations on the fly as you see fit: dual pedal boards running into a single amp head split to two cabs, with different mic sets for each, running into a single rack with a compressor and graphic eq, just as an example. Run a full stereo rig with different amp setups… the combinations are endless.

    Presets – The Key to Live Performance

    The entire AmpliTube chain can be easily saved, organized and recalled through the advanced built-in preset browser. Presets can be tagged and stored using a series of searchable, user-defined keywords and attributes. Plus, the online Preset XChange service allows users to post and share presets they create, with a growing community of AmpliTube users.

    You can save presets for a single piece of gear, or for a complete signal chain.

    Universal MIDI Control

    You can control AmpliTube live using IK dedicated guitar and bass interface and controllers such as iRig BlueBoard or StealthPedal with direct programming of the controller using the AmpliTube graphical interface, or you can quickly configure it to be used with any traditional MIDI controller by associating patches to MIDI program changes and knobs, switches, pedals to MIDI continuous controllers using the built-in “MIDI Learn” function. No matter what your playing situation, AmpliTube offers you hyper-control over your tone!

    High-Resolution Sound

    AmpliTube can work as a 64-bit plug-in for the most popular DAW (such as Pro Tools, Logic, GarageBand, Cubase, Live, Reaper) or can be used in stand-alone mode in Mac OS X and Windows. The plug-in and standalone versions offer the same function and sound, but the standalone version also offers a built-in 8-track recorder and DAW, plus a 4-track looper so you can capture your ideas at the moment of inspiration. Both the standalone and plug-in versions are included when you install AmpliTube. Rock On!

    Infinitely Expandable

    AmpliTube 4 comes with the built-in Custom Shop gear store feature that allows you to add gear to your collections any time a-la-carte or via collections. Its vast selection of amps, stomps, cabinets and more includes officially certified models from the likes of such legendary greats as Fender®, MESA/Boogie®, Ampeg®, Orange®, Soldano™, Groove Tubes®, Gallien-Krueger®, Jet City Amplification™, THD® and T-Rex®, Fulltone®, Z.Vex®, Carvin®, Morley®, Wampler Pedals®, Dr. Z®, ENGL® and more. In addition to these well-recognized brands, there’s also signature gear from artists like Slash and Jimi Hendrix. AmpliTube 4 can also be expanded with legacy gear from previous versions of AmpliTube via the Custom Shop. If you own a previous version of AmpliTube, simply restore your gear with the “restore my gear” feature in the Custom Shop.

    IK Multimedia Amplitube Mesa/Boogie

    Plug into a MESA/Boogie® amp and it will change your ideas about tone and your playing forever. Seriously, it really will. From the moment you first plug into a MESA, you’ll experience new levels of responsiveness, feel, nuance, and sound and you’ll quickly understand why MESA has always referred to their amplifiers as “Instruments”… because they are!

    After experiencing your guitar coupled with the effortless and empowering playability and a new freedom to express emotion through attack and sustain characteristics that seem to read your passion… for most, there is no going back to “an amp”.

    It’s hard to put into words the feeling of reward you get when all the hours of practice are suddenly supported and embellished and your playing jumps to a whole new plateau. But it’s REALLY great, and as soon as you plug in, you get it. The instant attack morphs stylistically under your command, the layers or rich harmonics create dimension and the newfound, willing sustain grant you access to the next level in your own development as a player.

    The MESA experience will leave a permanent mark on the musical part of your brain and you’ll find you’ re smiling… saying under your breath, “damn this sounds good.” It’s that sound you’ve heard in your head and searched for all your playing life and yet, never attained until now. That’s a Boogie®.

    And now you can have the essence of Boogie on your laptop.
