Guitar players from all genres agree that Jimi Hendrix was one of the most influential guitarists of all time. While many have tried to copy the famous Hendrix tone, IK Multimedia and Authentic Hendrix (founded in the late ’90s by Al Hendrix and his daughter, Janie) have collaborated on a new software product aimed at giving users the perfect Hendrix sound.
AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition was announced late Thursday and is, according to the company, the first guitar amp and effects modeling software focusing on Jimi Hendrix. The Hendrix Edition features nine vintage stomp effects, four vintage amp models, seven cabinets and four rack effects (Rotary Speaker, Stereo Reverb, Parametric EQ, and Tube Compressor).
The software will be available as a VST, RTAS, AU plug-in (as well as a standalone application) for Mac OS X in the first quarter of 2007. The software will cost $249.
