IK Multimedia, leader in amp-modelling plug-in technology, and ESI, prominent manufacturer of popular audio interfaces and hardware controllers, are working in collaboration to provide bundled packages of IK's AmpliTube® Live/LE software with new ESI's JamMate UG-1 USB Guitar packages starting in April of 2006. The introduction of a special version of IK's advanced guitar amp and effects modelling plug-in, AmpliTube, into ESI's advanced USB Electric Guitar Pack adds a true plug-n-play solution right out of the box.
ESI's USB JamMate UG-1 Electric Guitar Pack is an electric guitar with a USB connection that plugs right into a computer or laptop and is powered by ESI's state of the art USB technology. The UG-1 guitar can play along with other USB instruments like bass and drums — for simultaneous usage in the same host application.
"With the addition of AmpliTube's great features and sound, our goal of providing a complete USB electric guitar package that everyone can afford has been achieved. USB JamMate UG-1 electric guitar and AmpliTube amp simulation software are the beginning of the future of music instrument and education."
Min Soo Kim, CEO, JamMate, ESI Professional
AmpliTube software has become the standard tool of choice for hundred of thousands of guitarists, producers, and engineers worldwide looking to add real guitar sounds and creative effects to their music. The bundled version of AmpliTube 1 Live/LE is also fully upgrade-able to the newly released version of AmpliTube 2 at a very special price.
