A complete set of 17 officially certified models of Orange amps and cabinets for AmpliTube 3

Sunrise, FL (February 27, 2013) -- IK Multimedia — the industry leader in guitar/bass amp-and-FX modeling software — is proud to announce the AmpliTube Orange, a complete set of 17 officially certified models of Orange amps and cabinets for AmpliTube 3 (standalone/plug-in). First introduced during London’s “swinging ‘60s” era, Orange amps are renowned for their warm and luscious tube tone and characteristic crunch. IK is the only company to offer models with Orange’s official certification, and every guitarist, engineer and producer will want to own this definitive collection.

“We work closely with the IK engineers and programmers to ensure the quality and accuracy of the sound,” says Orange founder and CEO Cliff Cooper. “There is a lot of software out there that claim to give the Orange sound, but they don’t even come close. With IK we can sit down together and nail the Orange sound.”

The Lineup
AmpliTube Orange features models of 7 amp heads, 9 cabinets, and 1 combo, and offers a wide variety of authentic tube tone, great for screaming leads, fat power chords, chunky rhythm parts, smooth bass lines, and much more. No matter what the genre, users will find plenty of killer amp tones in this collection to go with their music.

Amps include the Tiny Terror, a 15 W head with a two-stage preamp (IK modeled the point-to-point, hard-wired edition); the Dual Terror, which can emulate the Tiny Terror or switch to the ultra-crunchy “Fat Channel”; the OR 50 and OR 120 heads, which each have the unique HF Drive control for increased presence and gain; the powerful Thunderbird 200 head, which can be used for either guitar or bass; and the versatile Rockerverb 50 MKII. The AD-30TC is a 30 W, Class A combo amp.

The cabinets can be mixed and matched with the amp heads — or any other amp in a user’s AmpliTube 3 collection — to create a huge range of cool custom sounds. The cabinets cover a wide range of configurations, and include models of the 1x12 PPC112; the 2x12 PPC212 Open-Back, PPC212, and AD30TC; the 4x12 PPC412; the 4x10 OBC410, the 8x10 OBC810; and the 1x15 OBC115.

Customize It
All the Orange models are also available à la carte in the AmpliTube Custom Shop, along with the rest of IK’s huge collection of amp, cabinet, effect, and mic models. The Custom Shop is integrated into AmpliTube software and plug-ins, and offers a “Try Before You Buy” feature, which lets users download a fully functioning version of any model and audition it for 72 hours before purchase.

Pricing and Availability
AmpliTube Orange is available now for the price of $99.99/€79.99 (excluding taxes), as a digital serial-number delivery that can be purchased inside the AmpliTube Custom Shop or from the IK Online Store. All the gear in the collection is also available individually in the Custom Shop.

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.
