Modena, Italy (January 15, 2011) -- IK Multimedia announces its AmpliTube Fender for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad: full-featured tone guitar rig apps with built-in recording studios offering the legendary Fender tone designed and developed in close cooperation with Fender.

Derived from the desktop version of AmpliTube Fender, the app offers 5 Fender amp models — the ’65 Deluxe Reverb, the Super-Sonic, the ’65 Twin Reverb, the ’59 Bassman LTD and the Pro Junior, and 6 Fender stompbox models — Tape Delay, Compressor, the Fender Blender, Phaser, Overdrive and Noise Filter.


The unique AmpliTube Fender signal chain allows the user to build full Fender rigs with three simultaneous stompbox effects on iPhone/iPod touch (and four on iPad) running into an amplifier head, speaker cabinet and microphone. Each element of the tone is individually selectable, with fully operational controls for ultimate ‘tweak-ability’. Plus, existing AmpliTube app users can add all of the components of AmpliTube Fender into their current app, incorporating that famous Fender tone into their current sound.

The AmpliTube Fender apps also feature a robust practicing tool which allows the user to import audio material for playing-along, and changing its tempo without affecting the pitch. The SpeedTrainer feature provides the ability to slow down backing tracks (-50%) to learn complex riffs, or speed them up (+200%) for practicing playing skills. Songs and backing tracks or loops can be loaded directly from the iPod library on the iOS device or from the computer.

AmpliTube Fender also comes with a built-in single track recorder with re-amping ability, expandable to a full-featured 4-Track recorder on iPhone or an 8-Track Recorder on iPad, both with master effects section. Ideas can be quickly captured by recording performances that can be shared by exporting high quality audio files or M4As. And an entire band can be recorded, or full songs and compositions can be produced directly in AmpliTube Fender.

  • Real time guitar and bass mobile multi-FX + recording app

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
