∞ IK Multimedia ships AmpliTube 3

Introduced at the NAMM music show in January, IK Multimedia is now shipping its new amp and modeling software, AmpliTube 3. There is a lot to like about this new version. It comes with more than 160 gear models that span vintage and modern-day classics. AmpliTube 3 has 51 Stompbox effects, 31 Amps, 46 Cabinets, 15 Studio Mics and 17 Rack effects.

AmpliTune 3 also has 70 re-worked models from packages like AmpliTube Metal and AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix. I have both of those packages and am really looking forward to trying those as well.

A new cabinet module now allows double micing, which should make a huge difference in tone. You can also freely move the mics around, giving you even more control over your tone.

IK said its using its third-generation modeling technology for this release, so you should expect some great sounding amps.

AmpliTube 3 comes as a VST, RTAS and Audio Unit plug-in, as well as a standalone application. It costs $349.99 to purchase, $269.99 for a crossgrade and $199.99 for an upgrade.

I have AmpliTube 3 and will post a more detailed review of it in the next week or so.
