IK Multimedia AmpliTube Guitar Effects

A Universe of Tones at Your Feet

In a quest to design the ultimate effects and studio tools for guitarists, the recording and computer audio experts at IK Multimedia utilized the vast library and processing power of their guitar modeling software suite, AmpliTube. From those efforts, IK Multimedia has created a roster of formidable multi-effects pedals that offer guitarists deep-yet-accessible takes on overdrive, modulation, reverb and delay, in addition to a stompbox that uses IK’s AI Machine Modeling technology to play realistic models of amps, cabs, and pedals like overdrive, distortion, fuzz, boost, and EQ.

There's a lot of ground to cover in the AmpliTube hardware family, so read up on our Spotlight guide to get the lowdown on each unit in this series and find which one(s) will be the X factor in your rig!

IK Multimedia TONEX Pedal Amp Modeling Pedal
For those who dream of having a warehouse full of amps, cabs, and pedals at their feet, there's nothing like the TONEX Pedal. This compact stompbox includes 1000 premium models plus unlimited user downloads from ToneNET. Recalling your favorites live is easy with 150 user presets across 50 banks with 3 slots each.

The TONEX Pedal doubles as an audio interface, with 24-bit, 192 kHz resolution and a wide 5 Hz - 24 kHz response, meaning every bit of your intricately crafted tone makes it onto your track! The included TONEX software also has a librarian to manage all your Tone Models and can be used as a stand-alone app, plug-in with your favorite DAW or inside AmpliTube 5.

TONEX Capture

IK Multimedia AmpliTube TONEX Capture Amp Modeling and Effect Ecosystem
TONEX Capture is an all-in-one accessory that makes it easy to capture your real amp's tone perfectly, with or without microphones. TONEX can faithfully reproduce the tone of your favorite amps, cabs, and pedals! Once captured, your beloved rig can be saved digitally as a Tone Model which you can call up as a plug-in or send to the TONEX Pedal and play live.

In addition to its amazing capture ability, TONEX Capture works seamlessly as a reamplification device, and with its routing capability and on-board attenuator it's easy to dial in the perfect level at any stage, making it an invaluable tool in the studio.

X-Vibe Modulation

IK Multimedia AmpliTube X-Vibe Modulation Pedal
Easily replacing four (or more) of your pedals in one, X-Vibe is a modulation machine. Its 16 ear-candy effects run the gamut, from '80s-inspired chorus and phaser to a double-tracked sound and step sequencer! Each effect is tweakable via depth and rate controls, as well as a 3-band EQ. Stereo adds spatial richness to the wild tones you create.

Saving unique effects is easy thanks to an on-board dedicated save button that also cycles through your presets. An expression control input grants you even more on-the-fly control for even more creative possibilities!

X-Time Delay

IK Multimedia AmpliTube X-Time Delay Pedal
Become a master of time and delay effects with X-Time! IK Multimedia's AmpliTube-powered delay engine harnesses 16 types of delay effects. Call up the sought-after tape delay sounds, go for a short-and-sweet slapback echo, or experience the wholly original Arctic delay. With 100 factory presets plus 200 user presets, X-Time offers plenty of room to explore, create, and save your creations. Add an expression controller for even more real-time dynamic control.

On-board tap tempo helps keep your repeats on beat, while stereo outputs and MIDI I/O unlock a range of rig configurations to get the most out of your delay effects.

X-Space Reverb

IK Multimedia AmpliTube X-Space Reverb Pedal
Explore the outer dimensions of tone with X-Space. This comprehensive reverb pedal features 16 unique ambient effects, ranging from traditional hall and spring to shimmer, ethereal and even magnetic reverb. Dedicated knobs for time, pre-delay, color, modulation, and mix let you dial in just the right amount of spaciousness for your needs. The expression pedal input paves the way to dramatic swells of ambience or jarring cutoffs.

Reverb is one area where powerful DSP can really shine, and IK Multimedia blessed the X-Space with 4x oversampling and 192 kHz processing for an amazingly rich, realistic collection of reverb algorithms.
