IK Multimedia has announced that AmpliTube for iPhone, the mobile guitar amp and effects system for Apple's iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, is now available for download from the iTunes App Store. Together with the iRig interface adapter this offers a complete solution for guitar and bass players to play, practice, and have fun anytime and everywhere through their iPhone. The combination of AmpliTube mobile app and iRig accessory adapter is called AmpliTube iRig.
AmpliTube for iPhone
At the core of the AmpliTube iRig is AmpliTube for iPhone, developed by IK Multimedia to get the most accurate tone from your iPhone. AmpliTube for iPhone gives you realistic sound and functionality in a convenient mobile app with 3 simultaneous stompbox effects, an amp-head plus cabinet and a microphone, offering more power than traditional pocket-size guitar effect processors.
With AmpliTube for iPhone fully loaded, you will be able to choose between 5 amp models (clean, crunch, lead, metal, bass) with full tone and drive controls, 11 stompbox effects (delay, flanger, phaser, overdrive, distortion, filter, wah, fuzz, octaver, chorus, noise filter), 5 speaker cabinets (1x12", 2x12", 4x12" A & B", 1x15) and 2 microphones (dynamic and condenser). Plus, AmpliTube for iPhone features a chromatic digital tuner and a metronome.

Simply plug iRig into your mobile device, plug your instrument into the iRig, plug headphones or an amplifier to the output and you are ready to rock with no further set-up needed. Plus, you can also use the iRig with line level signal sources such as synthesizers, keyboards or mixers.
