The IK Multimedia Orange Power Duo Bundle includes the complete versions of AmpliTube 4 and AmpliTube Orange.
AmpliTube 4 is a guitar and bass tone studio for Mac/PC that works as a standalone application and as a plug-in for your favorite DAW. AmpliTube recreates the entire guitar/bass signal chain from instrument to recording device, and does so in a very realistic and intuitive way. But it also does it in ways you never dreamed possible.
If you’re new to using computers to get fabulous guitar tone, then you’re in for a treat. If you’re a veteran computer tone-master, well, you’re still in for a treat. AmpliTube pioneered — and leads the way in — guitar amp and effects modeling, and AmpliTube 4 takes it to the outer edges of extreme hyper realism with intuitive familiar tools.
NEW HYPER-REALISTIC CAB ROOM
AmpliTube has always been about realism, and now that extreme commitment to accuracy is a part of its completely redesigned cabinet section. The new Cab Room feature is the most advanced cabinet section ever made, giving you a new level of customization and flexibility never before seen in software or reality.
The cab room now has 5 distinct customization sections: cabinet selection with size adjustment where players can choose the speaker cabinet they’d like to match to the amplifier, individual speaker selection where they can swap out individual speakers, mic selection and placement for finding the speaker “sweet spot”, room selection where players select the surrounding recording environment, and a mixer section that allows players to mix the levels of speaker mics, room ambience, direct amp signal and overall main mix. Never before has such a level of control and customization been available for fine-tuning tones from the speaker section.
For starters, the cab room is just that — a 3-dimensional speaker cabinet recording space that can be changed depending upon the desired “room” type and effect. Players can choose from a range of room types, from a cavernous “garage” to a full on cabinet “dead” room, and mix the room effect and color into the overall sound.
Now you can mic up your cabinet with up to two microphones in a full 3D space. AmpliTube 4 comes with 3 microphone, with an additional 15 highly coveted recording microphone models available in the Custom Shop providing a truly hyper-realistic sound capturing environment. The room microphones can also be chosen from the available mics. This, coupled with its swappable speakers, allows for true cabinet miking with full speaker interaction — a digital first. Add in things like room ambience control, a new mixer for the cab section and gorgeous new graphics, and it’s easy to see that the new Cab Section is poised to revolutionize the way guitarists, bass players and other musicians utilize virtual cabinets in their music.
Now you can swap out individual speakers in your favorite cabinets at will, allowing for creative speaker combinations utilizing the many precision-modeled speakers available. The AmpliTube 4 speaker cabinet section not only accurately reproduces the tonal characteristics of the individual speakers, but also accurately picks up the harmonic interactions between the individual speaker models, the cabinet construction and the room, making it the most realistic speaker cabinet emulation available.
NEW HYPER-REALISTIC GEAR — BRITISH AMPS!
AmpliTube 4 welcomes 5 new classic amplifier models to the mix representing some of the best British tones from the 70s, 80s and 90s.
Each amplifier has been modeled from scratch to embody a different aspect of powerfully classic British amplifier design: There’s the Brit 8000, Brit 9000, Red Pig, Brit Silver and Brit Valve-Pre. All of these new amplifiers have been created utilizing the same methods and patented technologies that have made the AmpliTube brand name synonymous with world-class sound, hyper-realistic tone and extreme accuracy.
These models also bring a new level of realism and sonic accuracy through a new technology that precisely replicates the dynamic interaction between the power amp and the speakers, thus eliminating the “harshness” typically found in the upper frequencies of other software and adding another level of dynamic response and hyper-real feel.
AmpliTube 4 is all about exploring new tonal possibilities and its new “Acoustic Sim” model pedal turns the electric guitar into a hyper-realistic acoustic. It delivers stunning realism and an amazing playing experience that can be tweaked with the onboard controls.
Players can choose from and blend 3 acoustic body styles and 3 types of top material to sound like a full range of popular acoustic guitars. Now guitarists with AmpliTube 4 will always have at their disposal great acoustic sounds.
CREATIVE CONNECTIONS AND EFFECTS PLACEMENT
New to the signal path in AmpliTube 4 is an effects “loop” insert slot situated between the preamp and power amp sections and can accommodate up to 4 daisy-chained rack or stomp effects.
In addition to the new effects loop, most stomp or rack effects can now be placed into the effects slot. This means that most stomp boxes can be used in the post “rack” section, and rack effects can be used in any stompbox slot — on any pedalboard or in the effects loop section. This opens the door for even more for creative tweaking and innovative sonic sculpting possibilities.
8-TRACK RECORDER/DAW UNDER THE HOOD
When used in standalone mode, AmpliTube 4 features a built-in 8-track DAW that makes recording ideas and songs a breeze. Its powerful sequencer-like waveform editing should be immediately familiar to you, making it easy to use it as a sketchpad for new ideas or as a full-featured recording solution on its own.
Each track features standard treble, mid and bass eq, pan control, level, mute, solo and record enable functions, plus there’s an FX enable button allowing for application of different tone configurations to individual tracks.
As a learning tool, you can import any audio tracks into the DAW section, define loop points and use AmpliTube’s built-in Speed control to slow down difficult passages without affecting pitch, and use the Pitch control to change keys without affecting speed. This feature is perfect for working out difficult solos or practicing different leads or melodies over a series of chord changes in a backing track.
A TRULY SUPER LOOPER
Rounding out AmpliTube 4’s new feature set is a MIDI controllable 4-track looper.
Dubbed the Super Looper, it’s a full-featured intuitive 4-part looper that you can use to lay down multi-part backing tracks with speed and ease, then practice leads, chords and melodies over the top.
Each track has an individual level and pan control so you can adjust them in the “mix” to suit your needs.
You can activate each track with the click of the mouse, or use a MIDI foot controller like the iRig BlueBoard to activate/deactivate tracks.
The looper audio can be exported to the hard drive of your computer, then imported into the AmpliTube DAW section, or your favorite sequencer.
Audio backing material can be imported into the first loop channel for continuous play.
Also stock in AmpliTube 4 is an upgraded tuner section with IK’s patented UltraTuner technology — the most precise digital tuner available with tuning accuracy to 1/100th of a cent. It’s the essential piece of gear that will always make you sound good!
Crank back the clock some 45 years to the swinging London music scene of the late 1960s, and you’ll find a young Cliff Cooper contemplating the creation of amplification of a different sort — amplification that wouldn’t just stand out tonally, but visually, too. Back then, musical instrument amplification was, well, boring, to say the least. Everything looked the same… black. Cliff saw opportunity and decided enough was enough — thus Orange Amplifiers were born.
Flash forward to 2013. AmpliTube Orange gives you the best of the best of Orange amplifiers and cabinets for your Mac or PC, in a new collection for AmpliTube Custom Shop from the leader in amp and effects modeling, IK Multimedia.
Orange amplifiers are used by professional musicians around the globe, from legendary players like Jimmy Page and Geddy Lee, to relative newcomers like Mastadon, Deception Theory and My Chemical Romance. Whatever style you play, you’ll find your tone inside AmpliTube Orange.
If you love the sound of Orange amps, you’ll love AmpliTube Orange. You get faithful “true to the original” models of some of Orange’s vintage and current dream machines. AmpliTube Orange includes 8 amp models: the AD 200, Dual Terror, OR 50, the Thunderverb 200, the Tiny Terror, the AD30TC, Rockerverb 50 the OR-120 and 9 matching configurable speaker cabinets. It is the definitive collection of Orange gear that every guitarist, engineer and producer should have.
AmpliTube Orange gives you all the juice you need to fuel your recordings with sweet vintage styled Orange tone. From a light squeeze of overdrive to a full-on screwdriver of distortion, and everything in between, AmpliTube Orange delivers.
Orange amplifiers have been around the music world for over 45 years, providing straight-ahead rock ‘n roll tone. And they’ve always looked “different,” which makes them the visual stage-amp of choice for musicians around the globe. Now your DAW or computer will sport the famous Orange look every time you want to rock out.
Because AmpliTube Orange runs from within AmpliTube, you get the full-rig signal path: tuner —> pedalboards —> amp head preamp —> effects loop —> power amp —> speaker cabs —> mics with room effects —> rack effects. Plus, you can configure two complete rigs and run in stereo.
There are also eight different series/parallel “routing” options available that give you total signal chain control, allowing you to configure tones for every possible playing scenario. You can select and customize different configurations on the fly as you see fit: dual pedal boards running into a single amp head split to two cabs, with different mic sets for each, running into a single rack with a compressor and graphic eq, just as an example. Run a full stereo rig with different amp setups… the combinations are endless.
AmpliTube is also MIDI compatible, which means you can use your favorite MIDI controllers to change parameters and switch presets. It’s perfect for foot pedal and floor controllers, that you can connect with IK’s MIDI interfaces (like iRig MIDI 2), and stompbox-style controllers, like IK’s iRig BlueBoard. Now you can wah, control volume, add gain, swap presets, adjust delay times and more, all without ever raising your hand.
AmpliTube Orange is a collection of the best of the best of Orange amplifiers and cabinets. Every detail of each amp model has been faithfully reproduced, all the way down to the signature hieroglyphic control labels. Orange is the king of “plug and play,” and that’s exactly what you get with AmpliTube Orange.
16 YEARS OF DECONSTRUCTION AND PERFECTION
It might sound a little “big-headed” but we’ve been recreating models of high-end vintage esoteric gear for over 16 years now, so we’re pretty good at it. In fact, many industry insiders view IK Multimedia as the “best” at it. What does that mean for you? IK’s extensive experience tearing apart vintage gear, analyzing it and reconstructing it, plus the development of modeling technologies like DSM (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) and VRM™ (Volumetric Response Modeling), give you realism so transparent that you’ll think you’re playing through the amp in your living room. It’s that real sounding. And only AmpliTube gives you the ability to “try before you buy.” You can download full working copies of any of the AmpliTube Orange amps from the AmpliTube Custom Shop and try them out.
