Jimi Hendrix’s Rig Gets Virtualized On The iPad

amplitube-irig-jimi-hendrixIK Multimedia has released AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix  – a new app that offers virtual recreations of the legendary guitar icon’s pedals and amplifiers..

AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix is a mobile guitar effects processor and recording studio app that lets you play, practice and record with Jimi Hendrix’s gear, anytime and everywhere. Use the iRig or iRig STOMP interface to connect your guitar to your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad, and use iRig MIDI to control AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix with your floor controller.

AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix lets you build a flexible guitar signal chain complete with 4 stompbox effects and an amplifier head with cabinet, plus a single-track recorder (expandable to 8 tracks) for capturing your musical ideas quickly and easily.

AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix features models of all the gear used by Hendrix, including amplifiers like the JH GOLD based on the Marshall JTM45 and the JH DUAL based on the Fender Dual Showman.

AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix also features a Song player section that allows you to play along with songs or backing tracks by importing them directly from your device’s iPod library, or from your computer.  The Song section also includes SpeedTrainer, which can slow down or speed up the tempo of audio material without affecting pitch.
