AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix

Version: 1.0.3 || Release Date: 2010-06-15 || License: Commercial with demo (129.99) Developer: IK Multimedia | App Owner: jfaucett

The first authentic software recreation of the complete guitar amp and effects rig of Jimi Hendrix

The Hendrix sound is a unique mix of high volume, feedback control and a exclusive, personal usage of guitar effects which was a breakthrough for its time. By then Hendrix was one of the first guitarists to experiment with the full expressive possibilities of electronic effects, which were a fundamental part of his sound. Electronic effects were a technological novelty in the 60s with semiconductor electronics in its infancy and the very first commercially available germanium transistors introduced in the mid 50s gradually replacing tubes in the next two decades.

IK has gone the extra mile in accurately modeling all the most important components of the Hendrix rig not only using proprietary AmpliTube 2 DSM (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) technology at its best, but collecting all the original vintage stomps, amplifiers and cabinets and fine tuning the software emulations by ear with accurate craftmanship to achieve incredibly realistic modeling results. A sound that will bring you back to the Woodstock era.

AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix offers the same 2 series/parallel rig structure of AmpliTube 2 and ensures a complete and flexible rig structure that can be used not only to recreate the authentic tones of popular Hendrix tunes but since the modeled gear in this product is in such high demand by guitarists, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix is a fantastic tool for many styles of modern rock music from hard rock to punk, alternative, progressive and pop.
