IK Multimedia is proud to unveil “Joe Satriani’s AmpliTube Shifting Song,” an original song written and recorded by the world-renowned guitarist himself that offers a unique retrospective of the many aspirational tones that span his full career. Joe Satriani performed all of the guitar and keyboard parts in the song. He recorded all of the guitar parts using the AmpliTube Joe Satriani collection.
Everyone is invited to listen to the song for free, and even try shredding along! Owners of AmpliTube Joe Satriani can also explore the settings used on the song.
Satriani shares his inspiration and gear set up for the new song:
“I had so much fun exploring my legacy tones and techniques on this musical trip down memory lane. It was all done with IK Multimedia’s AmpliTube Joe Satriani Collection software suite!"
I dug deep into my collection’s presets as well as AmpliTube’s enormous selection of sonic options to create a series of musical vignettes, all tied together with a deep groove and a decided nod to a few of my well-known songs.
“The signal chain looked like this: My Ibanez JS guitars, 5-string bass, acoustic guitar and mandolin into IK’s AXE I/O interface, then straight to my Pro Tools rig. Then I fired up the AmpliTube Joe Satriani presets. No amps, no speaker cabinets, no microphones. It’s amazing how easy and flexible this setup is. AmpliTube gives you the tools to take each patch and manipulate it in so many ways, it’s really inspiring.”
