IK Multimedia, in partnership with rock icon Joe Satriani, have released their newest artist signature collection, AmpliTube Joe Satriani. They say that, available for Mac/PC, iPhone and iPad, it offers users instant access to play, practice and record - anytime, anywhere - using precise models of the guitarist's amps and pedals that were created with Satriani himself. Here's the details direct from IK Multimedia...
AmpliTube Joe Satriani reflects the guitarist's reputation as a tone and gear connoisseur, featuring models of both classic and artist signature pieces, along with some fan favourites. Each model was created to Satriani's exact specifications, for an authentic user experience.

Groundbreaking Modelling Technology
IK's latest Dynamic Interaction Modeling™ was used to deliver the highest level of ultra-realistic sound when modelling Joe Satriani's gear. The product of 20 years' experience modelling analogue gear, DIM™ models the behaviour of every component in the circuit all the way down to its smallest nuance and character. Applied to Satriani's rig, it delivers the same sound and feel as his real gear.
