Music  retailers have voted the Peavey® AmpKit™  LiNK,  the Guitar  World Gold  Award-winning high-fidelity guitar interface for iOS devices, one of the Best  Products of 2011 in Music  Inc. magazine.

“Peavey’s  AmpKit LiNK electric guitar adapter provides users with a powerful way to play,  practice and record high-quality tones anytime, anywhere,” wrote Music  Inc.’s editorial staff in the December 2011 issue.

AmpKit  LiNK connects an electric guitar or bass directly into the headphone jack of an  iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.Together, AmpKit LiNK and  AmpKit—the  guitar amps, effects and recording app for iOS devices developed by  Agile  Partners—provide guitar and bass players with a powerful and convenient way  to jam wherever they go.

“AmpKit  and the AmpKit LiNK set a high standard for realism and fidelity on the iOS  platform,” said Hartley Peavey, founder and CEO of Peavey Electronics  Corporation. “We’re excited that our retailers have found so much success with  AmpKit LiNK, and we’re honored to be among Music Inc.’s Best of  2011.”

Peavey  and Agile Partners recently celebrated the release of  AmpKit  Version 1.2, which includes major tone advancements that enhance the iOS  guitar-playing experience for Peavey AmpKit LiNK guitar interface users.  Next-generation tone advancements such as dual-stage amp simulation,  convolution-based cabinet simulation, adaptive input compensation, a  significantly upgraded noise gate, and solo and mix output shaping deliver by  far the best-sounding, most realistic guitar tone on the iOS  platform.

Adaptive  Input Compensation technology, new in AmpKit 1.2, automatically identifies  frequency variations among the headset interfaces of iOS devices, and  compensates for the differences by adding slightly attenuated bass frequencies  to the output. The results are an amazing increase in the fidelity of the  incoming guitar signal and much richer amplified guitar tone regardless of the  chosen virtual amp or playing style.

With  its new dual-stage amp simulations, AmpKit 1.2 also doubles the simulation  fidelity of all Peavey amps in AmpKit when running on newer iOS devices,  including iPhone 4, iPad 1 and 2, and the fourth-generation iPod touch. The  combination of dual-stage amp simulation and convolution-based cabinet  simulation in AmpKit 1.2 delivers an unparalleled level of  realism.

AmpKit  is available in two versions—AmpKit, a free app, and AmpKit+, $19.99 U.S.—on the  iTunes App Store. AmpKit’s in-app Gear Store offers the largest gear selection  of any amps and effects app, including 19 amps with 35 separate amp channels, 22  effects pedals, 20 cabinets, 8 mics and more gear on the way. The Peavey amps in  AmpKit include the Peavey 3120™, Peavey 6505® Plus, Peavey 6534™ Plus, Peavey  Classic® 30 and Peavey ValveKing®.

The  AmpKit LiNK (U.S. MSRP $39.99) is available now from authorized Peavey  retailers, and AmpKit 1.2 is available now for download on the  iTunes  App Store. Please visit  www.peavey.com/dealerlocator to  find the Peavey dealer nearest you.
