AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix
IK Multimedia and Authentic Hendrix, LLC, introduces the AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix app for iPhone/iPod touch and iPad.
This is the first multi-FX modeling iOS app to offer officially approved Jimi Hendrix tones for guitarists.
The AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix App offer digital versions of Hendrix’s actual amps, cabinets and effects, as overseen by the Authentic Hendrix, LLC. It turns your iOS device into a portable amp and effects modeling gear that specialize in producing convincing Hendrix tones.
The app comes with presets that are conveniently arranged in discography format, making it easy to conjure the right gear combination and settings for virtually all of Jimi's songs.
Aside from mimicking iconic Hendrix tones, you can also use the various Hendrix approved models as basis for finding your own personal tone. They feature in depth settings for tweaking and creating your own unique and personalized sounds.
You get two historically accurate amp models - the "JH Gold", based on a Marshall JTM 45, the amp that Hendrix used almost exclusively from 1968 onwards, and the JH Dual, which is based on a Fender Dual Showman. And each amp model come with a matching cabinet.
To get authentic Hendrix Vibe, you also get five effects: Uni-V (based on Univox Uni-Vibe), Octa-V (based on the Roger Mayer Octavia), Fuzz Age (based on the Arbiter Fuzz Face), Wah 46 (based on the Vox V846 wah) and a modern Noise Filter (from AmpliTube). These are based on the pedals that helped propel Jimi to his legendary status.
Another nifty feature of the AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, is the ability to directly purchase authentic Hendrix songs such as "Red House", "Hey Joe" and many others. The built-in song player lets you download your purchased songs, and load songs from your media library.
Aside from playing along with Hendrix tunes, the app also provides a Speed Trainer and a vocal-eliminator, nifty features that will simplify and improve the results of your practice.
Finally, you also get a single-track recorder that can be expanded to 4 or 8 track self-contained studios with mixers and master effects, for the iPhone and iPad Apps respectively.
The AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix iOS app is now available on the App Store for $14.99. If you already have the latest version of the generic AmpliTube app, you can obtain the Hendrix models via In-App Purchase.
