IK Multimedia in Modena, Italy, announces that it is now shipping AmpliTube 3, a massive upgrade of its guitar and bass equipment-modeling software, in VST, RTAS and Audio Unit plug-in formats, and also as stand-alone software for Mac OS X and Windows. AmpliTube 3 offers more than 160 precisely modeled pieces of vintage and modern hardware, including 51 stomp-box effects, 31 amps, 46 cabinets, 15 studio mics, 17 rack effects and 30 brand-new models.

AmpliTube 3 also offers 70 re-worked models from packages like AmpliTube Metal and AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, and a new collection of bass gear models. AmpliTube 3 can be directly expanded with packages like AmpliTube Fender, Ampeg SVX and future packages. A new preset management and keyword system allows users to organize and quickly recall the library of included and custom preset tones.

A new cabinet module inside now provides double miking per cabinet, with freely movable microphones thanks to IK’s VRM (Volumetric Response Modeling) technology. IK Multimedia states that all models in AmpliTube 3 have been accurately “re-mastered” with its new third-generation modeling technology (the same found in AmpliTube Fender) using IK’s exclusive Dynamic Saturation Modeling (DSM technology). The company compared its software models with the originals in an “A/B” fashion.

New impulse-based reverbs are now used in the entire chain, from spring reverb to room ambience, designed for "the most realistic possible representation of your recording environment." AmpliTube 3 also offers a new rotary speaker module; new effects, including the new Step Filter, Step Slicer, TapDelay, Rezo and Swell stomp, and rack effects; a new full-stereo path enabling users to use analog and digital effects on vocal tracks, keyboards and drums; new drag & drop functions in the stomp box and rack modules; a new “MIDI Learn” feature for assigning any software control or parameter to an external controller with a click on the parameter’s knob; and a new, integrated 4-track recorder/player.

These products are available in the IK Online Store, and through IK's network of dealers and distributors worldwide. AmpliTube 3 is sold for $349.99 MSRP (new); $269.99 crossgrade available to any IK registered user; $199.99 upgrade available to all previous AmpliTube 2, AmpliTube Metal, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, AmpliTube Fender or Ampeg SVX registered users; and AmpliTube 3 Pedal (AmpliTube 3 bundled with StealthPedal USB/MIDI controller and audio interface) for $399.99.
