Modena, Italy (March 18, 2009)–IK Multimedia and Fender Musical Instruments’ collaboration, AmpliTube Fender, is now shipping.

AmpliTube Fender is the result of two years of collaboration between Fender and IK Multimedia. “An electric guitar is nothing without amp tone, and Fender amplifiers are the standard by which great tones are measured,” says Shane Nicholas, Fender’s senior marketing manager for guitar amps. “The thrill of plugging into a great tube amp will never die, but the convenience of plugging right into your computer is really compelling, and that’s not going away either. That’s why we partnered up with IK Multimedia to offer recording enthusiasts a quality software suite that models the sound, feel, and look of the best Fender amps. This is the real-deal palette of iconic Fender tones that will inspire creativity and help you make great music.”
Features include standalone and plug-in software for all the most popular VST/AU/RTAS platforms; 12 guitar amps with 12 original matching cabinets and more; 6 stomp effects and 6 rack effects; tone flexibility: mix and match amps, cabinets, mics and more; 5 modules: digital tuner, stomp pedal board, amp head, cabinet plus mic, and rack effects; 2 fully configurable rigs with up to 32 simultaneous effects; SpeedTrainer, IK’s media player and riff learning module, and Riffworks T4 recording software.
AmpliTube Fender can be expanded with any “Powered by AmpliTube” models using X-GEAR. It can be controlled live with StompIO, StealthPedal or any other MIDI controller. Hundreds of presets are included, with more online in the AmpliTube Preset XChange area.
