IK Multimedia has added 3D mic positioning and other Cab Room features for AmpliTube Custom Shop, the free version of their AmpliTube guitar amp and effects modelling software. Previously only available for AmpliTube 4 users, these premium features are now available at no extra cost to all users. Here's the details in IK Multimedia's own words...
What's new: AmpliTube delivers a hyper-realistic, full guitar rig experience, and an important part of that experience is found in the Cab Room features. AmpliTube Custom Shop users can now enjoy the unparalleled level of customization, virtualization and flexibility found in the five distinct Cab Room customization sections: Cabinet selection and size adjustment; individual speaker selection; mic selection and placement; room selection; and a mixer section. Each provides mix and match options and fine-tuning controls for a truly immersive reality that goes beyond the physical world.
Users now have the ability to shape their guitar tone in amazing new ways: craft signature cabinet/speaker combinations in an instant, freely move microphones around the speakers in three dimensions, even change the room itself to alter the sound. The sonic possibilities are endless, and never sacrifice the realism and accuracy users have always relied on.
About AmpliTube: AmpliTube is the world's most powerful guitar and bass tone studio for Mac/PC that recreates the entire guitar/bass signal chain from instrument to recording device in a hyper-realistic and intuitive way. It allows players to browse collections of gear models from the world's top manufacturers of gear including Fender®, Ampeg®, Orange®, Soldano®, Seymour Duncan®, Jet City®, Gallien Krueger®, Leslie® and more, plus signature gear from artists like Slash and the late Jimi Hendrix, and works as both stand-alone and as a plug-in for most popular recording software.
AmpliTube Custom Shop is the perfect way to start building a custom virtual gear collection - at no charge - with the ability to purchase additional amp and effects models as needed. Once installed, players can buy individual pieces of gear using Custom Shop gear credits or entire collections with gear credits or currency.
