AmpliTube Custom Shop Goes Boutique with Models from Dr. Z, Fulltone and Z.Vex -

(press release)

IK Multimedia, a pioneer and global leader in music-creation software, mobile apps and music-making hardware, announces a new version of AmpliTube Custom Shop (version 3.11), its full-featured guitar-and-bass multi-FX application and plug-in for Mac/PC. The new release includes new gear models from several of the hottest boutique manufacturers on the market today, including Dr. Z Amplification, Fulltone, and Z.Vex effects, which will be available for à la carte purchase from the online store integrated in AmpliTube Custom Shop.

The new version also adds 64 and 32-bit AAX (Avid Audio Extension) compatibility. As a result, AmpliTube now integrates seamlessly with the latest versions of Avid Pro Tools®.

Boutique and New Gear

The new models include two amps from Dr. Z Amplification. One is the MAZ 18 Jr., which was originally designed as a plug-in-and-play amp for studio musicians who wanted a quick way to dial up fabulous tone. It features a perfectly balanced design with an all-tube preamp along with power and rectifier sections that harmoniously produce a smooth top end and tight bass response with tons of headroom. A model of its matching 1x12 MAZ cabinet is available as a separate purchase.

Also from Dr. Z is the Z Wreck amp, collaboration with the late Ken Fischer of Trainwreck Circuits and country superstar Brad Paisley, who has used one for years. It provides an unmatched level of touch response and tone, and can deliver everything from Liverpool to rock to twang. Its all-tube design gives it warmth, crunch and growl at different volume levels, and provides voicing like no other amp in its class. The 2x12 Z Wreck, a model of the amp's matching cabinet, is available for purchase, as well.

The Fulltone OCD® overdrive pedal was designed to give players exactly what classic all-tube amplifiers provide when cranked up: sweet, full overdrive complete with multiple complex harmonics and overtones. The touch response rivals what you'd get on a tube amplifier - alter your attack or back off on your volume and you'll hear the OCD respond. The OCD lives up to its name when it comes to full attention to detail, and can truly be called the king of overdrive pedals.

Also new are two officially certified creative effects from Z.Vex Effects: Seek Wah™ and Seek Trem™. These two stomps offer full control over the timing and level of wah and tremolo effects, respectively, over a sequence of 4, 6 or 8 steps, providing players with a new sonic palette of rhythmic effects, and non-traditional control over classic effect types. Each effect has eight "control" knobs, which allow players to adjust the amount of the effect at the marked position, and offer full control over tempo, number of "slices" and blending. Tempo can be controlled by the host clock or adjusted independently giving players creative flexibility.
