IK Multimedia AmpliTube 3 Amp
IK Multimedia in Modena, Italy, announces that it is now shipping AmpliTube 3, a massive upgrade of its guitar and bass equipment-modeling software, in VST, RTAS and Audio Unit plug-in formats, and also as stand-alone software for Mac OS X and Windows. AmpliTube 3 offers more than 160 precisely modeled pieces of vintage and modern hardware, including 51 stomp-box effects, 31 amps, 46 cabinets, 15 studio mics, 17 rack effects and 30 brand-new models.
AmpliTube 3 also offers 70 re-worked models from packages like AmpliTube Metal and AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, and a new collection of bass gear models. AmpliTube 3 can be directly expanded with packages like AmpliTube Fender, Ampeg SVX and future packages. A new preset management and keyword system allows users to organize and quickly recall the library of included and custom preset tones.
A new cabinet module inside now provides double miking per cabinet, with freely movable microphones thanks to IK’s VRM (Volumetric Response Modeling) technology. IK Multimedia states that all models in AmpliTube 3 have been accurately “re-mastered” with its new third-generation modeling technology (the same found in AmpliTube Fender) using IK’s exclusive Dynamic Saturation Modeling (DSM technology). The company compared its software models with the originals in an “A/B” fashion.
