IK Multimedia Releases AmpliTube Slash


June 2012 – IK Multimedia is proud to release AmpliTube® Slash, the
official Slash apps and software that let you play, practice and record
with Slash’s signature pedals and amplifiers on the iPhone®, iPod touch®,
iPad® and Mac®/PC.

All versions of AmpliTube Slash feature models of the signature gear used
by Slash in the studio and for his live performances. Now users can rock
with models of the legendary Marshall® amplifiers used by Slash together
with his signature guitar pedals. Also included is a comprehensive
collection of Slash’s guitar tone settings provided as starting points for
tone tweaking or playing along.

Additionally AmpliTube Slash provides a fully integrated multi-track
recording studio for capturing ideas quickly and easily or producing
entire songs and compositions. A robust song player section gives users
the ability to play along with songs or backing tracks by importing them
directly from their device library or computer.

“My new album, Apocalyptic Love, was entirely written while we were on
tour,” states Slash, adding, “If we are not performing we’re traveling, so
there is little time for creating music.  By using my iPhone along with
IK’s AmpliTube and iRig I was able to capture whatever ideas I had
swimming in my head, usually around 4am.”

“AmpliTube iRig comes in really handy for on-the-go practicing, recording,
or just jamming on different ideas – even if it’s on the bus – it’s right
with me all the time”, Slash adds, “I’ll do some tweaks on the Marshall’s,
but there are also different effects that are available including
distortion, chorus, auto wah and more.”

Superior Modeling – The Real Deal

IK worked closely with Slash to model his entire rig comprised of 2
must-have classic rock amplifiers – the Marshall JCM Slash Edition Silver
Jubilee and the Marshall AFD100 – both equipped with Slash’s favorite 1960
Marshall speaker cabinet. Together with these sought-after amplifiers
users will be able to choose from 6 stompbox effects that includes Slash’s
signature Delay, Gate, Octave/Fuzz, Chorus, Booster and Wah/Distortion.
The rig is fully configurable so that the signal chain can be freely
customized depending upon the device used: 3 stompbox effects into an amp
and cabinet on the iPhone/iPod touch; 4 stompbox effects and
amp/cabinet/mic on the iPad, and up to 12 stompbox effect combinations
into dual amp/cab/mic/room on the Mac/PC.

AmpliTube Slash is the latest addition to the family of official IK guitar
and bass products that, thanks to IK’s unmatched modeling technologies,
features products with the best names in guitar effects and amplification
such as Fender™, Ampeg®, Orange®, Soldano™, Seymour Duncan™, T-Rex® as
well as legendary artist Jimi Hendrix™.

IK’s extremely popular iRig™ guitar interface adapter or the coming soon
