The AmpKit 1.3 Gear Store includes three great new additions, all available at special introductory pricing, as well as 14 great new presets.
World Class Bass Amplification: Trace Elliot 1215
- For the first time, iOS bass players can get a fully-featured, modern, world-class bass amplifier and cabinet!
- All the sophistication that bass players have come to love in the real Trace Elliot amps.
- Switchable valve (tube) drive circuit for fat bass distortion
- Single-touch Pre Shape circuit which delivers the classic Trace Elliot tone
- 12-band Graphic Equalizer tuned for bass frequencies.
- Dual-band compressor optimized for bass.
- All the tone fidelity you’ve come to expect in AmpKit.
- Convolution-based simulation of the 1 X 15 cabinet featuring a specially designed Celestion® speaker and high-frequency horn.
New Metal Pedal: Rocktron Metal Planet Distortion
- We love the tone on this versatile distortion pedal and bet you will too.
- True heavy metal distortion: not for the faint of heart.
- Unique mid frequency controls make it easy to duplicate the scooped heavy metal sound, or with a flip of the controls, modern rock tone.
- Amazing sustain and harmonics.
Beyond Quiet: Rocktron HUSH Noise Reduction
- Rocktron’s legendary HUSH noise reduction circuit, a standard for touring guitarists since 1984, is now available in AmpKit! If you aren’t using the HUSH, you aren’t using real noise reduction for guitar.
- When used properly, the HUSH will wipe out hiss and pickup buzz.
- The HUSH circuit, faithfully simulated in AmpKit, delivers 65dB of signal cleanup, while your music signal integrity remains unaffected.
- In other words, get rid of the noise without altering your tone!
- Also works great in tandem with AmpKit’s Noise Gate for ultra-high-gain setups.
- Extended support for digital guitar interfaces.
- Updated headset input compensation to support the new iPad (3rd Generation) and iPhone 4S.
- On multi-channel amps, setups now save the settings for all channels.
