AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix Anniversary Collection

Plug into the Experience

Now you can use the world’s greatest guitarist’s gear… Every time you play

When you think of the modern electric guitar, no doubt certain images pop into your head. However, perhaps none are more ubiquitous than the legendary Jimi Hendrix.

Believe it or not, November 27, 2012 was the 70th anniversary of Jimi's birth, and we're commemorating it with this new collection, which features stunningly authentic models of vintage Hendrix gear.

Jimi Hendrix

Sonic Alchemy – the Hendrix Formula

His sound was a unique mix of high volume overdriven tube amps, feedback control and an exclusive use of stompbox guitar effects, which was a breakthrough for that era. Hendrix was one of the first guitarists to really experiment with the sonic expressiveness of electronic effects, which were a fundamental part of his sound. Electronic effects were a technological novelty in the '60s, and in many respects, Hendrix was a pioneer in using them to craft unusual guitar tones. Now, you can play through the same gear…

AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Collection is the newly expanded officially licensed collection of gear used by Hendrix in the studio and on tour. You’ll be able to plug into the same stuff Jimi used to create the sounds that to this day are still regarded as THE voice of the electric guitar — the sound that will bring you back to the Woodstock era, while still sounding incredibly fresh and contemporary.

The AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Collection gives you 7 amps, 7 cabinets, 5 microphones, 11 stomps and 4 rack effects, for a grand total of 34 pieces of vintage Hendrix gear!

New additions include SilverTwelve (model based on the Silvertone® Twin Twelve 1484™), offering gritty distortion and massive clean tone; JH Gold (model based on a Marshall® JTM 45™), Jimi’s fave Marshall from 1968 on, modeled with our IK’s DSM™ and SCC™ modeling technologies; JH 1200 (model based on the Sunn® 1200S™), a high-powered tube bass head used by guitarists and bassists; and EP Tape Echo (model based on the Maestro® Echoplex®), which gives you the sound of the most famous echo unit of all time.

You can use the AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Collection as a standalone app complete with a 4-track recorder and speed control, or as a tone powerhouse plug-in for your favorite DAW.

Get the Complete Set-Up or One Piece of Gear at a Time

AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Collection features the same control and function as our flagship AmpliTube 3 software, and you can also add Hendrix gear through the AmpliTube Custom Shop feature that’s built into every AmpliTube product. So, you can purchase the “whole enchilada,” or just one spectacular piece of gear at a time — it’s your choice.

Discography: the Hendrix Presets

Included in the AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ package are tone presets for Jimi’s discography, covering the sound settings for virtually every part of every song from his studio recordings. Go ahead, play with them. Experiment. Mix ‘em up. They’re a great springboard — it’s what we as guitar players do. Now, you can truly get that “Hendrix” tone, and more.


How it Works

Chances are, you already know how it works. We designed AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Collection to be so familiar and intuitive in its operation that you don’t really need a manual or an engineering degree to operate it (we do, however provide a manual, just not an engineering degree). But just in case…

Get Connected

To use AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Collection, you have to connect your guitar to your computer. You do this with what’s called an “audio interface” (we make some really good ones, click here to check them out). Once connected AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Collection gives you the exact signal chain you’d use live and/or in studio: tuner —> pedalboards —> amp heads —> speaker cabs —> mics with room effects —> rack effects. Plus, you can configure two complete rigs and run in stereo.

Signal Chain

There are also 8 different series/parallel “routing” options available that give you total signal chain control, allowing you to configure tones for every possible playing scenario. You can select different configurations on the fly as you see fit: dual pedal boards running into a single amp head split to two cabs with different mic sets for each running into a single rack with a compressor and graphic eq, just as an example. The combinations are endless.

Speaker, Mic and Room Control

Cabinet Mic and Room Control

What you’ll be amazed by is the speaker section… it features an incredibly detailed cabinet, microphone and room module that lets you virtually recreate your favorite recording space. You can mic your cabinet with two mics and freely place the mics around the speaker to find the “sweet” spot. You can also control the mix between mic 1 and mic 2, and change the overall “depth” of the cabinet itself. Then, you can control the room reflection and ambience utilizing the room mic positioning tool. All of mic placement options are freely movable (just click and drag), so making adjustments to the “recording space” vibe is a breeze.

 

Stomp

Presets – the Jimi Anthology

The preset section of AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Collection features preset sound settings for the entire selection of studio recordings, divided by song and then by song parts. You can use these as a starting point, then modify the settings to your liking.

You can save presets for a single piece of gear, or for a complete signal chain. Presets can be organized and stored in up to 4,000 patch locations, in banks of A-B-C-D patches, that make AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Collection ideal for using it live with MIDI floor controller pedalboards.

 

Stealth Pedal

Universal MIDI Control

You can control AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Collection live using IK dedicated guitar interface and controllers such as StompIO or StealthPedal with direct programming of the controller using AmpliTube graphical interface, or you can quickly configure it to be used with any traditional MIDI controller by associating patches to MIDI program changes and knobs, switches, pedals to MIDI continuous controller, using the included MIDI learn function.

High-Resolution Sound

AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Collection can work as a 64-bit plug-in for the most popular DAW (such as Pro Tools, Logic, GarageBand, Cubase, Live, Reaper) or can be used in standalone mode in Mac OS X and Windows. The plug-in and standalone versions offer the same function and sound, but the standalone version also offers a built-in 4-track recorder with a “slow-downer” speed control so you can learn complicated licks, or capture your ideas at the moment of inspiration. Both the standalone and plug-in versions are included when you install AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Collection.


How We Did It

Are You Experienced? We Are

AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ Anniversary Collection is a collaborative effort between Authentic Hendrix, LLC. and IK Multimedia. Authentic Hendrix was founded in late '90s, by Al Hendrix and his daughter Janie to curate and promote Jimi’s extensive recorded legacy. Jimi Hendrix was fundamental in the development of modern guitar amplification and guitar effects and heavily influenced the evolution of modern electric guitar sound. In only the four years between 1966, when he started his rehearsal sessions with the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and 1970, when he died in London on September 18 at the age of 27, he was “instrumental” in changing the way music was made and electric guitar was played, leaving a permanent mark on the generations of guitarists and musicians that followed. He is constantly named by guitar and music magazines as the number one guitarist of all time.

How Were We Able to Do It?

We’ve been at it for over 16 years… some even say we’re pioneers in the modeling world. And our extensive research and experience has allowed us to work with some of the most influential companies and individuals in the music world today. We are one of the only companies in the industry who have been successful partnering with some of the world’s top manufacturers of gear, bringing their creations into the realm of digital tone creation and recording. It’s a very humbling and honorable experience, and one we wouldn’t trade with anyone.

Go ahead, enjoy the Experience.
