IK Multimedia’s AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix Now Available on the App Store

The AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix mobile Apps offer models of Hendrix’s actual amps, cabinets and effects, so that anyone can reproduce his tone or tweak it and make it their own.

Sunrise, FL (December 21, 2012) – IK Multimedia, in collaboration with Authentic Hendrix, LLC, is proud to announce the release of AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix for iPhone/iPod touch, and AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix for iPad, the first multi-FX modeling apps to offer genuine Jimi Hendrix tone for guitarists.

The AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix mobile Apps offer models of Hendrix’s actual amps, cabinets and effects, so that anyone can reproduce his tone or tweak it and make it their own. The presets are arranged in discography format, making it easy to dial up the right gear and settings to replicate the guitar sound from virtually any song in his catalog. Use IK’s iRig or iRig STOMP interfaces to get the best spot-on emulations of the Hendrix gear.

The Apps provide 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.

Five effects are included: 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. 

Pricing and Availability:
AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix for iPhone/iPod touch or iPad are available on the App Store for $14.99 / €13.99. Owners of AmpliTube can obtain the Hendrix models through In-App Purchase after updating to the latest version.

While Annie Clark was named the 26th greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone in 2023, she couldn’t care less about impressing an athletic stamp on either her sound or her image.

On her eighth studio release, the electroacoustic art-rock guitarist and producer animates an extension of the strange and singular voice she’s been honing since her debut in 2007.

“Did you grow up Unitarian?” Annie Clark asks me. We’re sitting in a control room at Electric Lady Studios in New York’s West Village, and I’ve just explained my personal belief system to her, to see if Clark, aka St. Vincent, might relate and return the favor. After all, does she not possess a kind of sainthood worth inquiring about?

Vox’s Clyde McCoy wah was arguably the first signature pedal, introduced in 1967. McCoy was a jazz trumpeter, but onomatopoeia inspired the device’s name.

Parsing the (mostly) good and the bad in the world of stompbox endorsements.

In the universe of guitar gear, artist-endorsed products are as common as stars in the night sky. Decades ago, signature pedals only had household names on them, but these days, manufacturers are tailor-making guitar gear for niche guitar players as well, and offering these bespoke creations to the rest of the public, too.
