AmpliTube 2 for iPhone

IK Multimedia has just announced AmpliTube® 2 for iPhone: a major update to the leading guitar software and now one of the most powerful music creation apps available for the iPhone.

AmpliTube 2 for iPhone offers realistic tones and effects, full multi-track recording capabilities and an advanced practice tool - all in one very convenient app. If you have an iPhone, you need to have a look at this.

This a great addition to the iRig. I tested the first version just when it came out, and I had a lot of fun with Amplitube for the iPhone. The first thing that I thought of was multi-track recording. How cool wouldn't that be on the iPhone? I asked IK Multimedia about this, and they said they are working on something new. Well here it is! A multi-track recorder with 4 tracks and master FX section - now we can record songs right there on the iPhone! It won't replace my recording studio of course, but it's a great tool for recording ideas when you are away from you studio.

If you have an iPhone and you play guitar - BUY THE iRig.

Combined with the iRig interface adapter, AmpliTube 2 for iPhone allows users to play, practice and record anytime and anywhere with world-class sound for guitar and bass – but also for any other type of instrument.

What's new in AmpliTube 2 for iPhone:

A full effects rig for guitar, bass and any other instrument

AmpliTube 2 for iPhone offers players an entire guitar/bass rig with 3 stompbox effects running into an amp-head with effects plus cabinet and a microphone. A total of up to 16 stompbox effects are now available (delay, fuzz, overdrive, wah, envelope filter, chorus, flanger, phaser, octave, distortion, noise filter, compressor, reverb, parametric EQ, graphic EQ, limiter), 5 amps with full controls (clean, crunch, lead, metal, bass), 5 speaker cabinets and 2 microphones (dynamic and condenser). The sound of the gear and cabinets has also been greatly improved utilizing DSP technology derived directly from AmpliTube 3 for Mac/PC, the leader in amp modeling software for professional studios. Additionally, up to 36 “full rig” tone presets can be saved, named and recalled on the fly. All these effects are essentials for guitar and bass tone shaping and they are also great on a wide range of other instruments such as acoustic guitars and basses, keyboards, synths, drums and vocals.

A professional portable recording studio

AmpliTube 2 for iPhone now includes a recorder with the ability to quickly capture ideas, then mix, re-amp and export them as WAV or MP3 files. The re-amping feature provides the ability to change the sound and tone of the original recording by applying a different set of effects after the track has been recorded without having to re-record it. The recorder in AmpliTube 2 can also be expanded to a full-fledged professional multi-track studio by adding the four-track recorder plus master effects section with reverb, equalizer and compressor (available as in-app purchase). With the 4-track recorder, users can record an entire band or produce full songs and compositions directly in AmpliTube on their mobile device. Track controls include individual volume, pan, apply FX, send FX, plus the ability to import audio directly into each track. The “Bounce” feature allows users to bounce all tracks to a single track, freeing up track space to record additional material for virtually unlimited recording ability.

A powerful practice and learning tool

Up to 50 songs and backing tracks can now be imported directly from the iPod library in the device or from the computer using iTunes file sharing or a Wi-Fi connection. AmpliTube 2 for iPhone now also sports IK's popular SpeedTrainer learning/practice feature that allows users to slow down or speed up the tempo of imported songs (1/2 speed, or 2x speed) without affecting the pitch. A digital chromatic tuner and metronome are also included, making AmpliTube 2 the perfect practice/learning tool.

AmpliTube 2 for iPhone features:

AmpliTube 2 for iPad is currently in development with even more powerful features and will be announced shortly. Current iPad only users are advised to wait for the dedicated version before going ahead with the in-app purchase of the iPhone version.
