Oh, this is cool! I remember having the opportunity back in the day to try Amplitube Fender before nearly anyone else had outside of the company. I was blown away at the time – it was a really good product, and in my mind started IKMM down their best avenues in terms of their modeling and how much realism and utility they could achieve in their software.
Now they’re bringing out a new generation of Fender amps for 2017 in the Amplitube Fender Collection 2. http://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/fender2/
I let my ears make their own judgments, but I tells ya, my aesthetic preferences are 100% down with this kinda thing. Check out the GUI for the ’53 Bassman model:
Very slick! Twin looking great too:
Of course I’m with yall in being most concerned about the tone – but who doesn’t like something easy on the eyes?
Amplitube Fender began the era of IKMM models reaching that next level. They’ve introduced a new modeling technology called “Dynamic Interaction Modeling,” which seems to be aimed at capturing the interactions between electrical components in the circuit as a whole to replicate genuine behavior as accurately as possible. I have not yet tried it but reading others’ impressions so far this just may be something special.
Hoping to get to demo this for the blog soon!
