20th September 2013
IK Multimedia has released a new version of AmpliTube for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, the full-featured guitar studio and recording app for mobile musicians, which adds iOS 7 compatibility as well as the ability to use AmpliTube as a filter app in the new iOS 7 "Inter-App Audio" feature.
iOS 7 Compatibility
The new version of AmpliTube (version 3.1) is fully compatible with iOS 7, the new operating system for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, which means you can create music on the go with the latest mobile functions and features available, including the new Inter-App Audio routing feature. The system, iOS 7, will come installed on the new iPhone 5S and 5C models that go on sale September 20. Owners of some older Apple devices also can download it to replace their current systems starting September 18.
Inter-App Audio Support
Inter-App audio allows audio apps to communicate with each other and stream the audio output from one app to another. This feature is extremely handy for adding effects, and processing the audio stream from one app and sending it to another. AmpliTube can be used as a "filter" app in iOS 7 for processing the audio from other apps, allowing musicians to use all of the stompbox and amplifier effects with any live (real-time) or recorded material. This feature is similar to AudioBus functionality. AmpliTube is fully AudioBus compatible as well.
Pricing and Availability
The latest AmpliTube update for iOS is free for existing AmpliTube iOS users. AmpliTube is available on the App Store for iPhone and iPad for $19.99/€17.99. A free version is also available. AmpliTube effects and functions can be expanded via in-app purchase with gear from Ampeg, Fender, Soldano, Slash and Jimi Hendrix, and a complete multi-track recording studio with drummer and DAW-editing features.
