AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix for iPhone/iPod touch, and AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix for iPad
With models of Hendrix's actual amps, cabinets and effects, Hendrix is at your fingertips with IK Multimedia's canny new Hendrix Amplitude app.
Presets are ordered as in a discography, meaning players can call up any of their favourite Hendrix numbers with ease. ("Use IK's iRig or iRig STOMP interfaces to get the best spot-on emulations of the Hendrix gear").
There's two historically accurate amp models: JH Gold (based on Marshall JTM 45), "the" amp that Hendrix used almost exclusively from 1968 on, and JH Dual (based on a Fender Dual Showman), each with a matching cabinet.
there's also five effects in the package: Uni-V (based on Univox Uni-Vibe), Octa-V (based on the Roger Mayer Octavia), Fuzz Age (based on the Arbiter Fuzz Face), Noise Filter (from AmpliTube), and Wah 46 (based on the Vox V846 wah, and free after registration).
"In the powerful Song Player window, users can directly purchase Hendrix songs such as "Hey Joe," "Fire," "Red House" and many others to play along with. The Song player can also load songs from the user library, or via Wi-Fi and File Sharing; and it provides a Speed Trainer and a vocal-eliminator.
The Apps are equipped with a single-track recorder that can be expanded to 4 or 8 track self-contained studios with mixers and master effects, for the iPhone and iPad Apps respectively."
AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix for iPhone/iPod touch or iPad are available on the App StoreSM for $14.99 / €13.99. Owners of AmpliTube can obtain the Hendrix models through In-App Purchase after updating to the latest version.
