IK Multimedia is proud to announce AmpliTube® 2 Jimi Hendrix™ Edition, the first authentic software recreation of the complete guitar amp and effects rig of Jimi Hendrix.
AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition is a cooperative effort between Authentic Hendrix and IK Multimedia. Authentic Hendrix was founded in the late '90s by Al Hendrix and his daughter, Janie, to curate and promote Jimi's extensive recorded legacy. AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition is the first guitar amp and effects modeling software focusing on Jimi Hendrix and can be used not only to recreate the authentic tones of popular Hendrix tunes, but since the modeled gear in this product is in such high demand by guitarists, AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition is a fantastic tool for many styles of modern rock music from hard rock to punk, alternative, progressive and pop.
Includes models of extremely rare and collectible vintage stomp boxes, amp heads and cabinets. AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition features 9 vintage stomp effects, 4 vintage amp models, and 7 cabinets, putting the sound of extremely expensive and hard to find gear at your fingertips. Also included are 4 rack effects (Rotary Speaker, Stereo Reverb, Parametric EQ, and Tube Compressor), increasing the tonal flexibility of the product and allowing you to sculpt the sound even further. The exciting news for thousands of AmpliTube 2 users is that the Jimi Hendrix Edition can also expand the available stomps, amps and cabinets inside AmpliTube 2! By integrating the two products you can double the amount of vintage stomp box models inside your AmpliTube 2 rig and add some of the collectible amps and cabinets that guitarists crave the most. Whether you want to get that classic Jimi Hendrix tone or treat yourself to the most desirable collection of vintage effects and amp gear ever offered in software, the AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition is the ultimate add on to AmpliTube 2!
A legendary sound that has marked the evolution of modern rock guitar and has influenced some of the greatest guitarists of our time. Jimi Hendrix was fundamental in the development of modern guitar amplification and guitar effects. In four short years (1966-1970), he contributed to change the way music was made and how electric guitar was played, leaving a permanent mark on the generations of guitarists and musicians that followed. Hendrix's sound is a mix of feedback control and a unique, personal usage of guitar effects which was a breakthrough for its time.
Powered by the award-winning AmpliTube 2 engine featuring proprietary techniques such as DSM™ (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) for achieving the most accurate emulation of guitar amps and effects. IK has gone the extra mile in accurately modeling all the most important components of the Hendrix rig not only using proprietary AmpliTube 2 DSM™ (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) technology at its best, but collecting all the original vintage stomps, amplifiers and cabinets of the same period and fine tuning the software emulations by ear with accurate craftsmanship to achieve incredibly realistic modeling results.
