AmpliTube 2 Live now available!
Introductory version of the most popular amps/effects modeling software ships with new guitar/bass USB audio interface cable

AmpliTube 2 Live, an introductory version of the most popular guitar and bass amps/effects modeling software, is now shipping. Based on AmpliTube 2, the new Live version is available as a part of a much larger bundle software package coming with the StealthPlug, IK's new USB audio interface cable, as a complete, convenient solution for guitar and bass players to enter in the world of software modeling.

AmpliTube 2 Live includes a simplified version of the complete guitar rig that can be found in its parent version, including 3 guitar and bass amps modeled on the most sought after vintage gear, 5 cabinets, and Mic modeling with 2 microphones and position controls. This allows a total of 15 amp combination possibilities for the widest range of guitar and bass tones, from clean to crunch to lead. Plus, all of the models are using the new AmpliTube 2 DSM™ (Dynamic Saturation Modeling), technology that has given AmpliTube a sound and feel so real that is has been proclaimed the best among all other modeling software or hardware solutions.

AmpliTube 2 Live also includes a virtual pedal board where a selection of up to 5 stomp effects can be inserted among the 9 stomp effects available: Overdrive, Delay, Chorus, Flanger, Compressor, Opto-Tremolo, Graphic Equalizer, Wah and Volume pedal. The pedal board is fully configurable so the effects can be mixed and matched to easily obtain the widest palette of sonic textures. A chromatic tuner is of course available for fast guitar and bass tuning. Plus, a Spring reverb in the amp section and a Gate effect in the input section bring the number of available effects to 11.

AmpliTube 2 Live is available both as a plug-in for the most popular sequencers (supporting VST, RTAS and Audio Unit plug-in format) as well as a standalone application. The standalone version includes also the new SpeedTrainer, an integrated audio player with independent pitch and speed control, for playing with or learning your favorite songs. SpeedTrainer allows you to drag any WAV or MP3 from your hard disk (even iTunes files!), set loop points easily for playing over and tracking your preferred riffs.

AmpliTube 2 Live is available only with the new StealthPlug USB audio interface cable, together with a much larger software bundle package, for an MSRP of only $129/€99 (VAT excluded) and is now available from all IK Multimedia distributors and dealers worldwide.
