Man is IK Multimedia bringing the music apps to the iPhone. Line 6 beat them to the guitar-iPhone interface module but the Amplitude iRig looks to be a bit cooler and effectively it turns your iPhone into a guitar effects processor. I’m anxious to test one out and see what the latency is like. Three versions will be available when the app launches and the interface itself will cost $40. At this point I’m not quite sure if there will be any multitrack functions but I hope so.
AmpliTube iRig — $39.99/€29.99** MSRP and is already available for pre-orders from the IK online store as well as from IK selected dealers and distributors worldwide.
AmpliTube for iPhone will be available in 3 versions from the iTunes App Store: FREE, LE and FULL.
AmpliTube FREE: Includes 2 stompboxes, 1 amp+cabinet, and 2 microphones.
AmpliTube LE: Includes 4 stompboxes, 1 amplifier + cabinet, 2 microphones for $2.99/€2.39.
More gear can be added to FREE and LE through in-app purchase of a-la-carte models with stompboxes costing $2.99/€2.39 each and amplifiers + cabinets for $4.99/€3.99 each.
AmpliTube FULL: Includes the entire collection of available gear with 10 stompboxes, 5 amps + cabinets and 2 microphones for $19.99/€15.99.
Coming soon, AmpliTube iRig and AmpliTube for iPhone will be available in stores and on the iTunes App Store.
