Product Description for the IK Multimedia Amplitube Fender
AmpliTube Fender is the first and only official guitar/bass amp and effects software suite made by IK Multimedia in cooperation with Fender. With a sample collection of 45 of the most sought-after classic and modern Fender amps (including the '65 Twin Reverb, '57 Deluxe, '59 Bassman LTD, '64 Vibroverb, Custom, Super-Sonic, Metalhead, and many more), cabinets, stompboxes and rack effects, AmpliTube Fender raises the bar for software amplifiers.
From guitar to bass, country to blues and rock, punk to metal—whatever style you play, AmpliTube Fender is the only amp suite that gives you the world's most influential guitar and bass tones right on your desktop.
In the development of AmpliTube Fender, IK Multimedia has taken an unprecedented approach to set the standard of modeling accuracy in order to nail every sonic nuance of the included legendary Fender gear. Every step in the development process has been constantly supervised and sound-certified, step-by-step, by the tone gurus at Fender to ensure that the same quality process of real gear tone-testing has been strictly followed in the realization of AmpliTube Fender.
Intuitive interface—Enhanced DSP engine
AmpliTube Fender interface presents a complete replica of included amps, effects, and related controls that is immediately familiar to any guitarist. Every parameter adjustment is never more than 2 clicks away, making even the most complex guitar tone fast to set up and edit.
The interface is supported by leading DSP modeling, which improves upon the already award-winning sound of AmpliTube 2 delivers optimal realism. AmpliTube Fender samples are reproduced using ultra-accurate modeling technologies developed by IK engineers with years of research in circuitry modeling. In addition to IK's classic DSM (Dynamic-Saturation Modeling), the VRM (Volumetric Response Modeling) technology has been developed to nail down even the finest sonic detail. VRM makes it possible to physically emulate the real sound of a rotary speaker as it has never done before in a sample software.
5 separate modules on 2 separate guitar rigs
Like AmpliTube 2, AmpliTube Fender includes 5 individual components, with Tuner, Stomp pedal board, Amp Head, Cabinet + Mic, and Rack effects on 2 separate guitar rigs with 8 different series/parallel configurations. Up to 12 simultaneous stompboxes, 2 Amp Heads, 2 Cabinets with 2 Mics, and 8 Rack effects can be configured and used simultaneously.
The massive number of resulting sound combinations allows for flexibility that's a dream for any guitar player: two separate paths, each with a complete setup to be played simultaneously, or the incredible power to be able to double the available stomps, amps, cabinets, and racks effects in one monstrous rig.
Standalone version with SpeedTrainer
The standalone version of AmpliTube Fender sports the same features of the plug-in and includes SpeedTrainer, an integrated audio player that gives you separate pitch and speed controls for learning any of your favorite riffs by slowing tempos of guitar solos without changing the pitch. SpeedTrainer allows you to drag any WAV or MP3 from your hard disk (even iTunes files) and set loop points easily for playing over and tracking your songs. An included metronome (set by BPM or Tap) is also very useful for the studying and practicing guitarist.
AmpliTube X-GEAR and StompIO seamless integration
AmpliTube Fender also includes AmpliTube X-GEAR so it can be integrated with all current and future "Powered by AmpliTube" products within a single interface. X-GEAR provides full mixing and matching of over 200 award-winning gear models, and adds full MIDI and StompIO control for live usage. When used with AmpliTube X-GEAR, all the models from AmpliTube Fender can be read together with AmpliTube 2, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, AmpliTube Metal and Ampeg SVX, to build the ultimate mega-rig of award-winning Fender amp models and truly custom guitar and bass tones.
By utilizing AmpliTube X-GEAR, AmpliTube Fender software can instantly be controlled live via StompIO or StealthPedal for the ultimate tone rig, with no special setup.
StompIO turns your computer into an advanced, high-end floor multi-FX system, with 10 floor-board switches, 6 knobs, 2 large displays, and up to 6 external switches/expression pedals, with no need to connect a monitor, mouse, or keyboard.
