Ableton Introduces Amp and Cabinet Effects

New effects deliver realistic guitar amp and cabinet sounds to Ableton Live 8 users

Berlin, Germany (September 22, 2010) -- Ableton has introduced Amp and Cabinet effects for Ableton's recording products. Amp is an Ableton audio effect that adds warmth and drive without hassles. Co-developed with Softube, Amp accurately delivers the sound and simplicity of legendary amplifiers and cabinets.

Ableton has focused on the essentials — tone, vibe and character — so musicians can focus on making music instead of searching for the right knob, allowing them to get good dirt, fast.

Amp comes with Cabinet, a separate effect that provides a selection of classic guitar cabs, with optimized mics and mic positioning. Ableton has also included a wide range of sounds that transform Ableton’s instruments and effects with Amp’s new sonic character. These include Instrument and Effect Racks, Live Clips and over 400 presets.

Amp is included with Ableton Suite 8 and is available separately for EUR 99/USD 129 from the Ableton web shop. Live 8 users can also take advantage of a free collection of new Instrument and Audio Effect Racks that use Amp's technology when they download the latest Live update, 8.2.
