IK Multimedia announces AmpliTube X-GEAR digital effects pedals

IK Multimedia

IK Multimedia announces AmpliTube X-GEAR pedals. Each high-performance pedal features 16 different effects, drawn from the most popular AmpliTube models and all-new reverb and delay algorithms, bringing IK's effects out of the computer and onto pedalboards.

And each pedal is accompanied by an exclusive virtual X-GEAR version of the exact same effects for use in AmpliTube 5 (SE version included). This lets users record, tweak settings and save presets back to the hardware pedal so guitarists can switch between stage and studio seamlessly.

The four AmpliTube X-GEAR pedals include X-DRIVE distortion and X-VIBE modulation, X-TIME delay and X-SPACE. All four X-GEAR pedals share the same high performance hardware and DSP at up to 192kHz internal processing with 4x oversampling.

X-GEAR pedals feature an aluminum chassis designed and made in Italy and feature ultra-low noise, 24-bit/192kHz converters, an extended 5 Hz – 24 kHz frequency response to capture the full scope of an instrument's tone, and up to 123 dB dynamic range along a pure analog dry path and selectable true or soft bypass. X-GEAR pedals also work as a convenient USB audio interface. Versatile routing options let users choose between sending the wet or dry signals to their DAW. There's stereo out for monitoring and thanks to full MIDI implementation users can map the dials and stomps of XGEAR to control AmpliTube and/or any compatible program.

The intuitive interface and control knobs are easy to tweak on the fly. A high-contrast LED display keeps users informed on their settings and preset banks. An expression pedal input adds additional control over any parameter, while full MIDI implementation is built-in for even the most complex setups. Five cabinet impulse responses are included in each pedal to connect directly to a PA.

With the included Preset Manager, users can easily set up one X-GEAR pedal as the master to send program changes to the other pedals, and then just drop the presets they want to be activated into the appropriate slots in order to daisy chain the pedals together via MIDI.

AmpliTube X-GEAR pedals will be arriving in August and are currently available for pre-order from the IK Multimedia online store and from IK authorized dealers worldwide for $/€299.99.*.

*All pricing excluding taxes.
