AmpliTube updates released
IK Multimedia has released two software updates, AmpliTube Fender 1.0.1 and AmpliTube X-Gear 1.3.1. AmpliTube Fender offers a selection of 45 classic and modern Fender guitar and bass amps, cabinets, stompboxes, and rack effects. Amplitube X-Gear allows users to customize their own guitar sounds, with access to 195 amps and effects from all current AmpliTube software. Both programs have fixed small glitches, such as pedal displays and reverb values, along with memory and CPU optimizations.
The programs follow a host of other AmpliTube programs, each of which enable users access to otherwise expensive or inaccessible guitar equipment. The programs are also compatible with GarageBand, giving the user the ability to emulate their favorite guitar sounds in their own recordings.
The full version of AmpliTube Fender is available for $230, while the studio version costs $140. AmpliTube X-Gear is only available to registered users of "Powered by AmpliTube" software products and StompIO users. Qualified users can download the program for free from the IK Multimedia website.
