Never before have you been able to get this close to the real thing on your desktop.
Intuitive interface - Enhanced DSP engine
AmpliTube Fender interface presents a complete replica of included amps, effects and related controls that is immediately familiar to any guitarist. Every parameter adjustment is never more than 2 clicks away, making even the most complex guitar tone fast to set-up and edit.
The interface is supported by leading DSP modeling, which improves upon the already award winning sound of AmpliTube 2 to set a new standard of realism. AmpliTube Fender uses new ultra-accurate modeling technologies developed by IK engineers with years of research in circuitry modeling: in addition to IK's classic DSM or "Dynamic-Saturation Modeling" the new VRM (Volumetric Response Modeling) technology has been developed to nail down even the finest sonic detail.
5 separate modules on 2 separate guitar rigs
Like AmpliTube 2, AmpliTube Fender includes 5 individual components, with Tuner, Stomp pedal board, Amp Head, Cabinet + Mic, and Rack effects on 2 separate guitar rigs with 8 different series/parallel configurations. Up to 12 simultaneous stomp-boxes, 2 Amp Heads, 2 Cabinets with 2 Mics and 8 Rack effects can be configured and used simultaneously.
The massive number of resulting combinations allows for flexibility that's a dream for any guitar player: two separate paths, each with a complete setup to be played simultaneously, or the incredible power to be able to double the available stomps amps cabinets and racks effects in one monstrous rig.
Standalone version with SpeedTrainer
The standalone version of AmpliTube Fender sports the same features of the plug-in plus includes SpeedTrainer: an integrated audio player that gives you separate pitch and speed controls for learning any of your favorite riffs by slowing tempos of guitar solos without changing the pitch. SpeedTrainer allows you to drag any WAV or MP3 from your hard disk (even iTunes files!) and set loop points easily for playing over and tracking your songs. An included metronome (set by BPM or Tap) is also very useful for the studying and practicing guitarist.
AmpliTube X-GEAR and StompIO seamless integration
AmpliTube Fender also includes AmpliTube X-GEAR so it can be integrated with all current and future "Powered by AmpliTube" products within a single interface. X-GEAR provides full mixing and matching of over 200 award-winning gear models, and adds full MIDI and StompIO control for live usage. When used with AmpliTube X-GEAR, all the models from AmpliTube Fender can be read together with AmpliTube 2, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, AmpliTube Metal and Ampeg SVX, to build the ultimate mega-rig of award-winning gear models and truly custom guitar and bass tones.
By utilizing AmpliTube X-GEAR, AmpliTube Fender can instantly be controlled live via StompIO or StealthPedal for the ultimate tone rig, with no special set-up.
StompIO turns your computer into the most advanced, high-end floor multi-FX system, with 10 floor-board switches, 6 knobs, 2 large displays and up to 6 external switches/expression pedals, and no need to connect a monitor, mouse or keyboard.
What's new in AmpliTube Fender
In the development of AmpliTube Fender, IK Multimedia has taken an unprecedented approach to once again raise the bar in modeling accuracy in order to nail down even the finest sonic nuances of every piece of the included legendary Fender gear.
The entire development process has been thoroughly supervised and sound-certified, step-by-step, by the tone gurus at Fender to ensure that the same quality process of real gear tone-testing was followed strictly in the realization of AmpliTube Fender.
IK's exclusive technologies like DSM have been used extensively and pushed to the limit, and new technologies have been developed to achieve unprecedented sonic results in realism of guitar and bass gear models.
This historical cooperation has produced the most authentic recreation to date of the world's most influential guitar and bass tones, right on your desktop.
All-stage-design in the modeling of both Amps and Effects. No compromises have been made for developing the Fender models included in AmpliTube Fender. Every stage of each of the included amps and effects has been modeled separately, leaving no room to approximation to achieve a truly hyper-realistic sound. Proprietary technology like IK's DSM (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) has been pushed to the limit to raise the standard once again in recreating the included models.
Ultra-precise amp response down to the finest detail. The amps have been painstakingly studied, analyzed and reproduced with a maniacal attention to the very deepest detail: from the true potentiometers curves to the characteristic amp behavior at all sound levels. Having the sound of the real things on your desktop doesn't get any closer than this.
Precisely matched reverb models. Each amp sports its unique on-board reverb model that has been modeled separately in order to closely mirror how the original corresponding amp sounds.
New rotary speaker technology: VRM. To accurately emulate the Fender Vibratone we have been challenged to develop a unique new technology we dubbed VRM (Volumetric Response Modeling) that for the first time is able to physically emulate the real sound of a rotary speaker as it has never done before in software.
Tailored to Fender guitar and bass. During all testing we have ensured that AmpliTube Fender gives you the best tone when used with Fender guitars and basses so its default response works perfectly out of the box when used with models like Stratocaster, Telecaster, Precision Bass, etc...
