Peavey Now Shipping AmpKit LiNK HD

Audio innovator Peavey Electronics and award-winning app developer Agile Partners announce shipping availability of the highly anticipated Peavey AmpKit LiNK HD.

Meridian, MS (April 4, 2013) – Audio innovator Peavey Electronics and award-winning app developer Agile Partners announce shipping availability of the highly anticipated Peavey AmpKit LiNK HD. Featuring twice the fidelity and convenience of the original award-winning AmpKit LiNK, the new pocket-sized AmpKit LiNK HD utilizes USB digital audio technology to eliminate crosstalk and feedback, resulting in pristine audio quality and zero latency.

The AmpKit LiNK HD enables players to send a signal to a headphone output and a line output, making guitar amplification and gigging with an iOS device easier and more convenient than ever. The LiNK HD maintains high fidelity even with the authentic high-gain amp models in  AmpKit, the award-winning amp modeling app. Together, AmpKit LiNK HD and AmpKit provide guitar and bass players with a powerful, convenient way to jam wherever they go.

It’s simple to connect a guitar or bass directly into the dock of an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, and with AmpKit LiNK HD’s snug-fitting cable, the instrument will stay secure while maintaining a strong audio signal. When connected to the optional AC adapter, AmpKit LiNK HD will even charge an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch while in use.

Using the included USB cable, the AmpKit LiNK HD becomes a high-quality guitar interface for Mac and PC. This means that guitar players no longer need to carry a separate interface for their mobile iOS and computer.

The AmpKit LiNK HD features a high quality construction Peavey is known for, with sturdy jacks and cable connectors and a rubberized non-slip coating that’s easy to handle. On-the-go jamming is easier than ever with add-on accessories such as a belt and strap clip, which makes the device mountable. Players even have control of the guitar input level and headphone output level right at their fingertips using the control knobs located directly on the interface, so there’s no need to launch another app.

AmpKit LiNK HD is the perfect companion for the AmpKit app. AmpKit’s in-app Gear Store offers the largest gear selection of any amps and effects app, including 19 amps with 35 separate amp channels, 22 effects pedals, 20 cabinets, 8 mics and more gear on the way. The Peavey amps in AmpKit include the Peavey 3120, Peavey 6505 Plus, Peavey 6534 Plus, the Peavey Classic 30 and Peavey ValveKing.

Electro-Harmonix is a giant among pedal builders. What’s inspiring about EHX is that they’ve never let that stature keep them from taking risks. Take the company’s keyboard- and synth-inspired pedals: the B9, KEY9, MEL9, and Synth9. Each has been a success, but none were sure-fire hits. Guitar-based synthesis at accessible consumer prices is not easy. Yet in each case, EHX created something playable and useful to guitarists. And if they didn’t always achieve perfect replication of the keyboard and synth instruments that inspired them, the pedals often prompted new ways of relating to a guitar and new possibilities in performance and composition. The S9 String Ensemble is among the most realized of these pedals. Its sounds are rich and creatively executed. And the pedal is compelling in the truest sense of the word: It makes it virtually impossible to not consider new songs, new arrangements, and new styles as you interact with it.
