IK Multimedia announced at the Musikmesse music trade show in Frankfurt, Germany on Wednesday that AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix Edition and SampleTank 2.5 will both ship within the next two months.
AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix
is a software recreation of the complete guitar amp and effects rig of the legendary guitarist.
According to the company, they collected all of the original vintage stomps, amplifiers and cabinets of the same period and tuned the software emulations by ear to achieve realistic and authentic modeling results.
AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix features 9 vintage stomp effects, 4 vintage amp models and 7 cabinets.
Compatible with Intel and PowerPC Macs, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix will cost $249 and will ship in April.
IK also announced at the show that a new version of
SampleTank, the company’s sample workstation, will ship soon. SampleTank 2.5 will add five AUX and five Master insert effects to the existing 5 insert effects, now called PART effects.
SampleTank will also include a reverb effect taken from Classik Studio Reverb, extending the included effects in the application to 33. SampleTank 2.5 will be free for all SampleTank 2 L and XL users and can be downloaded from their IK Personal User Area when it is released in May.
