Mobile Audio Interfaces with AmpliTube Custom Shop tone software

November 2011,  Modena, Italy – From the company that brought you the revolutionary iRig mobile guitar interface, software for the iOS platform and the iRig  family of mobile audio hardware, comes the next generation of mobile  guitar and bass products playing and recording products for Mac/PC. Now guitar  and bass players can turbo charge their laptops and play virtually  anywhere with two new complete packages from IK Multimedia: The  StealthPlug CS and StealthPedal CS “Custom Shop” Systems. These two  new packages provide players with an audio interface for their computer  (a way to hook up an instrument to their computer) and the world’s most  popular Guitar & Bass tone shaping software system: AmpliTube  Custom Shop.  Now players can practice, play and record anywhere, any time with their laptops, using gear from the  world’s top manufacturers.

The Tone Machine — AmpliTube Custom Shop:

The  core of the Custom Shop package is the AmpliTube Custom Shop software,  IK’s revolutionary tone software that allows players to build virtual  guitar rigs one piece at a time with gear models from the world’s top manufacturers.  It comes  complete with 24 pieces of gear, a digital chromatic tuner and two  complete guitar/bass signal chains for mono and/or stereo operation. The  AmpliTube Custom Shop is based upon AmpliTube 3, the premier Guitar/Bass tone software found in recording studios  around the world.  It has the same operation and feature set, and can be  used as a plug-in for virtually every DAW (digital audio workstation)  or as a standalone tone machine for live performance and recording.  It also sports a full-featured 4-track recorder for  capturing ideas quickly and easily.

The AmpliTube Custom Shop offers gear from the top makers, and is open 24/7

:  Fender™, Ampeg®, Orange®, Soldano®, T-Rex®, Seymour Duncan®, Groove  Tubes® and more… With AmpliTube Custom Shop, players now have access to  every piece of gear from all AmpliTube collections:  AmpliTube 3,  AmpliTube Fender®, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™, AmpliTube Metal and Ampeg® SVX; plus they’ll find additional pieces and  “collections” of gear from the world’s top manufacturers.  IK is  constantly adding new manufacturers and new models to the collections.

The StealthPlug USB Audio Interface Cable:

The  StealthPlug CS “Custom Shop” is perhaps THE most affordable way to get  started making guitar music on your laptop.  It features the StealthPlug  ¼” to USB cable interface, and the new AmpliTube Custom Shop software plus 50 gear  credits to use in the AmpliTube Custom Shop online store.

The StealthPlug Audio interface cable is a high quality, easy-to-use and  simple audio interface cable that plugs your guitar right into your  computer.  It’s a 9-foot cable with a ¼” instrument jack on one end, an  inline analog to digital converter with volume controls and a headphone jack, and a USB plug on the other end.

The StealthPedal USB Audio Interface and Controller

StealthPedal CS, or “Custom Shop”, is the next step up for mobile guitar and bass players.  It features  the StealthPedal wah-style USB audio interface and controller, plus  AmpliTube Custom Shop software and 100 gear credits to use in the  AmpliTube Custom Shop online store.

The  StealthPedal serves two purposes:  getting your guitar signal to and  from your laptop, and controlling software knobs from the floor while  you play.  And all the magic happens in a nice compact wah-style housing —  something already very familiar to players. The StealthPedal features  operational sample rates up to 96kHz providing pristine sound quality  from your guitar or bass.  Plus, it features “smart jacks” that will auto-detect and adjust for different types of  instrument inputs. StealthPedal is not only great for guitar and basses,  but also works with keyboards, drum machines and other audio input  devices.

Controlling software parameters with the StealthPedal is a breeze thanks  to AmpliTube Custom Shop’s seamless integration and MIDI control.   Simply “right-click” on any software knob, button or adjustment to  assign it to a function on the pedal.  Plus, the StealthPedal comes with a MIDI control app that lets you use the StealthPedal with  any MIDI compatible application.
