15th June 2012
IK Multimedia has announced the release of a major update of AmpliTube for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
The new AmpliTube 2.5 packs a multitude of new features:
- Expandable with AmpliTube Slash gear. All the gear that contributed to make the legendary Slash sound, including 2 Marshall amp models and 6 signature stomp effects, are now available inside AmpliTube via in-app purchase as a bundle or individual models.
- Full MIDI Integration. This feature allows users to control AmpliTube 2.5 via standard MIDI controllers using an iOS MIDI interface such as iRig MIDI. This allows to remotely switch presets or to control each knob, switch or controller on the interface with a physical controller. The feature is available as in-app purchase and it is free for iRig MIDI users.
- Support for all 30-pin Audio Devices. AmpliTube 2.5 now supports digital audio input/output via the 30-pin connector with compatible standard core audio devices.
- Redesigned Recorder section. The new recorder section of AmpliTube 2.5 now includes a Loop function for looping sections of recorded material, a new visual Metronome and a quick access Tap Tempo button.
- New Mixer section. A new mixer interface has been added to the recorder allowing easier control of master reverb send, channel level, pan control, mute and solo buttons, plus an FX button for applying the AmpliTube signal chain to the recorded material on the individual channels. This feature also allows "re-amping" of tracks to get that perfect tone or to apply different creative techniques to the material post-recording.
- New Copy/Paste function. Now users can copy or paste audio materials to and from other apps that support this feature, or copy the content of one channel in the mixer to another channel easily.
- Restore in-app purchases. By using the new Restore Purchases feature, simplifies the update process for users that has purchased more gear via in-app purchase.
- Export audio via SoundCloud or FTP. In addition to exporting recorded material using email and file sharing now users will be able to easily upload and share their materials online on FTP or via SoundCloud.
- Retina Display support. AmpliTube 2.5 now has an even more elegant interface designed for higher resolution retina displays both on iPhone and on the new iPad.
