UltraTuner

AmpliTube 4は、IKの特許技術に基づくUltraTunerを搭載しています。UltraTunerは、1/100セント(半音の1/100)単位で計測可能な、極めて高精細なデジタル・チューナーです。レコーディングに、そしてライブに、必須のギアであることは、言うまでもありません。

こんな風に使えます

マニュアルなどを読まなくても、あくまで直観的に使えるように、AmpliTube 4は設計されています。特別なコンピュータの知識は特に必要ありません。AmpliTubeをよくご存知でない方のために、AmpliTube 4の基本的なコンセプトを、簡単にご紹介しましょう。

AmpliTubeのシグナル・チェイン

AmpliTubeを使用するには、まず、「オーディオ・インターフェイス」と呼ばれる機器を使用して、ギターやベースをお使いのコンピュータに接続します(IKのギター / ベース用インターフェイスのラインアップは こちら をご覧ください)。AmpliTubeでは、ライブやスタジオでの音声信号の流れ、すなわち、チューナー —> ペダル・エフェクト・ボード —> アンプ・ヘッド・プリアンプ —> エフェクト・ループ —> パワー・アンプ —> スピーカー・キャビネット —> マイク(そしてルームの音響特性) —> ラック・エフェクトといったシグナル・チェインが忠実に再現されています。加えて2つの機材セット(2系統のシグナル・チェイン)を、自由に組み合わせて、複雑なルーティングも可能です。

at4-rig

ルーティング設定

AmpliTube 4では、2系統のシグナル・チェインに基づいた8種類の異なる直列 / 並列ルーティング設定が可能ですから、2種類のアンプ / エフェクト・サウンドをミックスしたり、ステレオ・オーディオ処理を行ったりなど、あらゆるシーンに対応した、トータルな音作りを行うことができます。2つのペダルボードを経由して1つのアンプ・ヘッドに入力し、さらにその出力を2つのキャビネット分けて、それぞれ異なるマイクとルーム設定を行ったものを、1つのラック・エフェクトのコンプレッサー、そしてグラフィックEQで処理を行うなど、複雑なルーティングさえも可能です。これら8種類のルーティング設定をどう使うかはあなた次第。その可能性は膨大です。

洗練されたプリセット管理機能

AmpliTubeのシグナル・チェインは、洗練されたプリセット・ブラウザ機能により、保存、管理することができ、必要な時に瞬時に呼び出し可能です。プリセットは、ユーザーによる定義が可能なキーワードや属性により分類も可能です。

1つのギアの設定から、アンプ、エフェクト設定、ルーティング設定、キャビネット設定など、一貫したシグナル・チェインまで、プリセットとして保存することも可能です。

at4-plugin-preset

自由自在にコントロール

AmpliTubeは様々なコントローラーと組み合わせて、ディープなコントロールも簡単に行えます。

新的USBペダルボード&オーディオ・インターフェースの iRig Stomp I/Oを使用することで、従来のペダルボードと同様の感覚でストンプ・エフェクトのON/OFFやプリセットの切り替えなどが可能になります。

iRig BlueBoard(Mac版のみ対応)を使用すれば、ワイヤレスでプリセットやストンプをコントロールすることも可能です。

AmpliTubeはMIDIに対応していますので、iRig MIDI 2などのMIDIインターフェースを使用することで、外部コントローラーを接続してわずか数回の操作でパッチやパラメーターをアサインすることもできます。

irigstompio_foot_top

64-bitプラグインにも対応

AmpliTubeは、Mac OS XでもWindowsでも、Pro Tools、Logic、GarageBand、Cubase、Live、Studio Oneといった、主要なDAWソフトウェアとして64-bitプラグインとして動作します。AmpliTube 4の標準インストールを行うと、スタンドアロン・アプリケーションとプラグインがインストールされます。スタンドアロン・アプリケーションとプラグインは、まったく同じアンプおよびエフェクト機能を備えています。スタンドアロン・アプリケーションには、さらに8トラックのDAWレコーダー機能と4トラックのルーパー機能が装備されています。DAW機能とルーパー機能をあわせると、AmpliTubeだけでも、スケッチから最終的なデモ・トラックまで作成することさえ可能なのです。アイディアが閃いた時が、ロックする時。それがAmpliTubeなのです。

拡張性は無限大

もちろん、AmpliTube 4は、24時間年中無休のCustom Shop機能に対応していますから、必要な時にいつでも、モデリング・ギアのコレクションを拡張することができます。Custom Shopでは、Fender®、MESA/Boogie®、Ampeg®、Orange®、Soldano™、Groove Tubes®、Gallien-Krueger®、Jet City Amplification™、THD® and T-Rex®、Fulltone®、Z.Vex®、Carvin®、Morley®、Wampler Pedals®、Dr. Z®、そしてENGL®に至るまで、古典的名機のオリジナル実機を忠実にモデリングした膨大な数の公認ギアを取り揃えております。また、SlashやJimi Hendrixなどのシグネイチャー・コレクションもお忘れなく。以前のバージョンのAmpliTubeシリーズ製品をお使いの方は、Custom Shopアプリケーションの「Restore My Gear」機能を使って、お持ちのギアをAmpliTube 4で引き続きお使いいただくことができます。

Gear Selection

First and foremost, AmpliTube is all about the gear. AmpliTube 4 ushers in 5 new British classic amplifiers and cabinets, plus an acoustic guitar simulator, a double mic setup and the world’s most precise digital tuner — UltraTuner. In addition, AmpliTube 4 delivers the ability for you to swap out individual speakers in a speaker cabinet, a software first! Choose from 29 individual precisely modeled vintage and modern 12" guitar cabinet speakers.

New British models

AmpliTube 4 welcomes 5 new classic amplifier models to the mix representing some of the best British tones from the 70s, 80s and 90s. Each amplifier has been modeled from scratch to embody a different aspect of powerfully classic British amplifier design. There’s the Brit 8000 (based on the JCM800), Brit 9000 (based on the JCM900), Red Pig (based on the Marshall Major), Brit Silver (based on the Silver Jubilee) and Brit Valve-Pre (based on the JMP-1).

Brit 8000

The new Brit 8000 is based upon the early 80s JCM800, the amp that although most think of the Plexi’s as the defining tone of a pushed Marshall, in reality it’s the JCM800 that people are hearing. The JCM800 was the first departure from the Plexi format designed for players who desired a “hotter” front end and more control over the overall output volume. The result? More preamp overdrive and crunch at controllable volumes. The Brit 8000 comes with matching cabinet 4x12” Brit 8000 which is based on Marshall® 1960 Lead Vintage 4x12 slanted cabinet loaded with G12-80 speakers.

Brit 9000

The new Brit 9000 is based upon the early 90s introduction of the “evolution” of the JCM 800, the JCM900. This dual channel, dual reverb head was designed for versatility with channel 1 voiced from clean to low level lead gain when cranked, and channel 2 voiced with enough gain to provide fearsome lead tones at low gain to screaming solo tones at high gain. The Brit 9000 comes with matching cabinet 4x12” Brit 9000 which is based on Marshall® 1960A Lead Vintage 4x12 slanted cabinet loaded with T75 speakers.

Red Pig

This gem from the 60s is based on the Marshall Major 200 “Pig” (as it was nicknamed) made famous by players like Ritchie Blackmore, Jimmy Page, Joe Perry and at times Stevie Ray Vaughan. It was originally produced for players who needed more stage volume and sported a full 200 watts powered by KT88 power tubes. Nicknamed “the Pig” because it was a full 3” deeper than Marshalls of the day to accommodate the larger transformers, it quickly became the favorite of larger venue players. The Red Pig comes with matching cabinet 4x12” Red Pig which is based on Marshall® Major 4x12 slanted cabinet loaded with T75 speakers.

Brit Silver

Based on the 1987 Marshall Silver Jubilee commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Marshall company, the Brit Silver features the 3-gain mode of the preamp circuit “clean”, Rhythm Clip and Lead. The Silver Jubilee was also the first Marshall to feature an output power section that could be switched from full to 1/2 power, thus providing that JCM800 tone at reasonable volumes. The Brit Silver faithfully recreates the original Silver Jubilee down to every minute detail for hyper-real authentic Marshall tone. The Brit Silver comes with matching cabinet 4x12” Brit Silver and is Based on Marshall® 2551A 4x12 slanted cabinet loaded with T75 speakers.

Brit Valve Pre

Rounding out the new Brit series of amps is a preamp model based on the Marshall JMP-1 valve preamp. The JMP-1 was Marshall’s first foray into the world of MIDI control with Marshall tone. It allows players to sculpt the tones they want, then save those tone presets for recall by MIDI control at any time. It's one of the most simple preamps, very straight forward. It has the staple Marshall controls like Volume, Gain, Bass, Middle, Treble and Presence. It features a bass shift, 2 overdrive channels, and 2 clean channels. For its ease of use and its “ready to go” sound character, it quickly became one of the most iconic Guitar preamps of the era. Almost 90% of the pro players at the time had a JMP-1 in their rack of toys. The Brit Valve-Pre comes with matching cabinet 4x12” Brit 30 and is based on Marshall® 1960A Lead Vintage 4x12 slanted cabinet loaded with V30 speakers.

Sponge & Sag – Dynamic Response

All of these new amplifiers have been created utilizing the same methods and patented technologies that have made the AmpliTube brand name synonymous with world-class sound, hyper-realistic tone and extreme accuracy. These models also bring a new level of realism and sonic accuracy through a new technology that precisely replicates the dynamic interaction between the power amp and the speakers, finally eliminating the “harshness” found in the upper frequencies of other software.

Acoustic Simulator

AmpliTube 4 is all about exploring new tonal possibilities and its new “Acoustic Sim” model pedal turns the electric guitar into a hyper-realistic acoustic. It delivers stunning realism and an amazing playing experience that can be tweaked with the onboard controls. Players can choose from and blend 3 acoustic body styles and 3 types of top material to sound like a full range of popular acoustic guitars. Now guitarists with AmpliTube 4 will always have at their disposal great acoustic sounds.

Double Dynamic 57

AmpliTube 4 includes the Double Dynamic 57, a special mic setup based on a pair of Shure SM57 microphones. It can even be found in a typical setup used in the most sought after recording studios. It is made up of not one but two dynamic mics, one pointing straight and the other angled at 45 degrees. The phasing phenomenon generated by this setup produces pleasing high-frequency cuts, enhancing the boldness of the sound.

Effects Loop

New in AmpliTube 4 is an additional slot in the signal chain right after the amplifier pre-amp section but before the power stage. Most of you will recognize this slot as the effects loop or insert and it allows you to add in up to 4 daisy chained effects for signal processing before hitting
the power section.

Effects Loop

But that’s not the coolest addition to the signal chain… now you use many of the stompbox and rack effects in ANY of the effects slots. Thanks to an innovative visualization feature and flexible routing options, you can now stick your favorite stompbox into the post-cabinet rack section or in the effects loop rack, or swap your favorite rack effects for a slot on the pedalboard. It’s a feature we’ve always dreamed of and now all our dreams have come true!

This amazing stomp box reproduces the hypnotic, pulsing tremolo sound characteristic of ‘50s tube amps. It can also produce crazy and innovative tones never heard before. With its detailed "Wave" and "Shape" controls, it is one of the most versatile tremolo stomp boxes available.
The Wave control shapes the tremolo effect from a smooth sine wave to a sharper triangle wave to the abrupt “on/off effect” of a square wave. The Shape control sets the rise and fall time of the tremolo (how fast or slow the volume increases and decreases). This adds some very different variations to the tremolo effect: with a quick swell and a slow drop, the effect is percussive like a piano. Conversely, with a slow swell and a sudden drop, the result is reminiscent of a tape played backwards.
Power Grid
Officially Certified Seymour Duncan® Power Grid Stomp Box Model
25
The Power Grid is a high gain, solid state distortion pedal capable of a myriad of tones thanks to a three-band active EQ section. It is perfect for all styles of rock.

Pinnacle Deluxe
Officially Certified Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe Stomp Box Model
25
Based on the eponymous pedal from the Wampler brand the Pinnacle Deluxe captures the original "Brown Sound" of the early plexi-style amplifiers pushed to the limits, a sound that was the trademark of many rock guitarists of the late '70s and early '80s, Eddie Van Halen to name just one... It features a dual gain stage mode: it can act as a mild overdrive to push the following amp into distortion, or via the "Boost" switch it can generate a thick amount of distortion on its own. The "Tone" knob covers the overall brightness of the distortion, while the "Contour" knob takes care of the critical midrange, allowing to scoop mids out or push them forward according tho the rhythm or lead duties it's called to serve.

The Essential Cab Room

Hyper-realistic cab room

AmpliTube has always been about realism, and now that extreme commitment to accuracy is a part of its completely redesigned cabinet section. The new Cab Room feature is the most advanced cabinet section ever made, giving you a new level of customization and flexibility never before seen in software or reality. The cab room now has 5 distinct customization sections: cabinet selection with size adjustment where you can choose the speaker cabinet you’d like to match to the amplifier, individual speaker selection where you can swap out individual speakers, mic selection and placement for finding the speaker “sweet spot”, room selection where you select the recording environment, and a mixer section that allows you to control and mix the levels of speaker mics, room ambience, direct amp signal and overall main mix. Never before has such a level of control and customization been available for fine-tuning tones from the speaker section.

3D Speaker Cabinet Selection

AmpliTube 4 ushers in some amazing control features when it comes to fine-tuning and tone sculpting one of the most important components in the signal chain: the speaker cabinet. First, it lets you mix and match speaker cabinets with the amplifier you’re using. Choose the cabinet that’s most commonly used with the amplifier, or select a completely different cabinet from all of the available models. This allows you to do some things you simply can’t do in the physical world — break up combos and use the individual cabinets from them. Plus you can use any available cabinet with any amplifier — impedance matching in AmpliTube 4 is automatic so you never have to worry about blowing up your power amp! Pretty sweet.

Individual Speaker Selection

Want to hear what a Vintage 30 sounds like next to a Greenback? No need to get the drill and soldering iron out, AmpliTube 4 lets you swap out individual speakers with the click of a button! AmpliTube 4 comes with 29 precisely modeled speaker emulations of some of the most popular speakers in cabinets today, with more available in the AmpliTube Custom shop. Now you can experiment with different speaker combinations to sculpt that perfect cabinet sound, all in the convenience of your personal recording space. But what makes the new cab room even more realistic is the fact that it not only picks up the tonal character of the individual speakers, but it replicates the harmonic and physical interaction that occurs naturally between the speakers giving you the most realistic sounding environment available. In short, you can go hyper — hyper real with mic’ing up a cabinet!

Mic Selection and Placement

Imagine having access to 18 of the most coveted recording microphones of all time. Now imagine being able to choose and place those mics exactly where you want them — right in the “sweet spot” that truly evokes the range and emotion you want to express. Now you can. AmpliTube 4 comes with 3 highly coveted recording microphones and there are an additional 15 mics available in the AmpliTube Custom Shop. AmpliTube 4 gives you the choices and ability to go hyper-real with your mic placement. And AmpliTube 4 not only picks up on the tonal characteristics of the individual speakers, but it actually picks up the physical and harmonic interaction between the individual speakers, surrounding cabinet and space between the speakers and mics. With AmpliTube 4, you’ll quickly realize what you’ve been missing with other amp sims.

Recording Room Selection

Want to record in the garage? How about in a hardwood studio room with a rug? A cabinet isolation room? With AmpliTube 4, now you can. The Recording Room selection tab lets you choose from 6 different ambient recording spaces. Choose from a big live room, venue stage, two studio rooms, an isolation booth or a garage. You can also select which pair of room mics you want use and then dial in the amount of stereo room ambience to your liking. The Recording Room selection adds a completely new level of hyper-realism to your guitar tone.

Mixing it all together

AmpliTube 4 now has a dedicated mixing environment for the speaker cab room. Now you can custom mix all of the audio components in one easy to use mixer — speaker mics, room mics, direct amp signal (that’s right… you can even blend a little DI into the mix!) and control the entire volume level with a master fader. Never before has it been so easy to get hyper-real!

8-Track Recorder/DAW

AmpliTube works seamlessly with your favorite DAW as a plug-in, comfortably playing well with other plugs in the mix. But what if you don’t want to fire up the giant recording beast just to get a few ideas down quickly? Well, you’re in luck. AmpliTube 4 also operates as a standalone guitar & bass tone studio AND idea capturing 8 track recorder and DAW. This means several things… First, you can just hit record and start wailing as the tone inspires you. The quickest way from brain to ears is the push of one button and WHAM — there’s your phrase in all its splendor. Need to add a layer? Bass? Drone riff? No worries, you’ve got a full 8 tracks of space. And with the new DAW section, you can do some other pretty nifty tricks.

at4-standalone-rec-daw

Split, Cut, Copy, Paste

Manipulating audio in the DAW couldn’t be easier nor more intuitive. Audio waveforms accurately represent your recordings for precise editing. Each track features your standard treble, mid and bass eq, pan control, level, mute, solo and record enable functions, plus there’s an FX enable button allowing for application of different tone chain configurations to individual tracks. Add a crunch rhythm to track 1, clean shimmering chunk chords to track 2, layer overdrive and heavy tones on 3 & 4… anything is possible in AmpliTube!

Loop

As a learning tool, you can import any audio tracks into the DAW section, define loop points and use the built-in Speed control to slow down difficult passages without affecting pitch, and use the Pitch control to change keys without affecting speed. This feature is perfect for working out difficult solos or practicing different leads or melodies over a series of chord changes in a backing track. Want to hear a passage at a different tempo or pitch? Simply use the speed & pitch controls to adjust.
AmpliTube 4’s DAW can do it all!

Export

AmpliTube 4 lets you export your masterpieces however you see fit… as individual tracks or as one master file for mastering — the choice is yours. And you can export in a variety of file formats to suit your needs, .wav, .mp3,. .aif and more.

4-Track Looper

Speaking of Loops, AmpliTube 4 now sports an intuitive 4-track looper that’s an improvisationalist’s (is that even a word?) dream come true. No more outboard gear for looping and practice… it’s all built in! The 4-Track Super Looper may look simple, but in hyper-reality (just like everything in AmpliTube 4) there is some pretty powerful stuff working under the hood.

at4-standalone-looper-amp-red-pig

4 Looping Tracks

The first thing you’ll notice about the looper is you have 4 tracks. The cool thing about these is that there’s really no limit to how long you make your loops. Recording time is limited only by the amount of disk space you have on your computer. However, the loop length for loops 2, 3 & 4 are set by the start & stop recording time for track 1. Just makes sense. Each track has an individual level and pan control so you can adjust them in the “mix” to suit your needs. You can activate each track with the click of the mouse, or use a MIDI foot controller like the iRig BlueBoard to activate/deactivate tracks.

Click Track

You’ll notice a metronome icon at the bottom of the window. Here you can activate a click track for the looper and set your tempo. Once activated, the click track gives you a 4 count “count-in” and you’re ready to make your next hit phrase.

Import/Export

The 4-Track Looper also lets you export your loops, reopen into the built-in DAW, or import them into other sequencers. The Super Looper lets you do amazing, hyper-realistic things inside the world of AmpliTube 4.
