Amplitube Fender is Go! (and a couple more clips)

I haven’t seen any press release or anything like that, but people who preordered the downloadable purchase are reporting they’ve got their download emails, and the demo is now available from IK’s site:

I’ve got a couple tracks to add; I was going to have more, but my DAW’s been having some trouble this afternoon, and I figured you’d probably be busy trying it out yourself now that the demo is available. For those wondering, the terms of the demo are just like every other IK demo, 10 days of unlimited usage after which it starts making noises pretty often.

Anyway, here are a couple of clips if you haven’t already gone off to IK’s site and started playing with it yourself 🙂 Both of these combine Amplitube Fender with prior stuff from other Amplitube products.

First, a clip combining Amplitube Metal’s fantastic Proco RAT model with the ’57 Deluxe from Fender for a raunchy, punk-rock inspired tone:

And next, this one was very fun because it combines Ampeg SVX’s Compressor pedal with Amplitube Metal’s Overdrive and 10-band EQ pedals to achieve a Single Coil to Humbucker-style conversion. The amp used is the very brutal Fender Metalhead. If I didn’t tell you, would you believe this was played on a Strat with single coils?

Here’s the pedal chain, how to achieve a humbucker-like tone with singles, for anyone who is curious:

Have fun everyone. I’ll be happy to put up more clips if anyone is interested, just leave me a comment and let me know.

    Dude, did you dial the SC-HB in yourself? That’s quite impressive.

    I did indeed, thank you very much for the complement. I don’t use any presets, I honestly find presets in general to be a bad way to introduce yourself to a program since there’s no way that a company can make presets which fit every situation. IK has stated publicly, over at http://www.guitarampmodeling.com, that they tuned the presets in Amplitube Fender using Fender guitars, which of course means if you plug in a P90 equipped Gibson you’re probably going to find them a bit “off…” I’ve been working with these kinds of software for some time so I prefer to just start with a blank patch and craft the tone from the ground up for my specific guitar and setup 😀

    I tried to get the mac demo but the link is broken…

    Yeah, I think IK’s site is all lined out now, it should just be accessible from the main page as normal now. That link was not, I think, really supposed to be there at first, but I don’t really know, what is certain is that for awhile before they made the big announcement (a period of a few hours that day) you could order and receive Fender from that page and get it as normal. I had it pointed out to me by a member at KVR on the day of the release.
