X-GEAR & AmpliTube 2 Live

IK Multimedia has announced that its AmpliTube X-GEAR software is now a free for owners of AmpliTube 2 Live or the StealthPlug.

Controls such as Ambience are added to Cabinets, and increased automation is possible.

AmpliTube Live costs $100, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or better; AU, VST and RTAS plug-ins are supported. To download X-GEAR, people must visit IK's user area.
