WATCH: IK Multimedia updates AmpliTube 4 with Live mode

IK Multimedia has announced a new Live mode for its AmpliTube 4 software for Mac and PC.

For use with IK’s iRig Stomp I/O USB pedalboard controller, the update provides a “clear and intuitive visual indication of the status between the pedalboard and AmpliTube”.

Users can access an at-a-glance visual indication of their entire signal chain and important settings such as presets and pedals.

Live mode is activated when iRig Stomp I/O is connected and can be shown or hidden at any moment. The page offers an overall view of the current chain, a section with presets (grouped in fours, matching the four iRig Stomp I/O switches) and a section displaying current connections between AmpliTube models and iRig Stomp I/O switches and pedal.

New features for iRig Stomp I/O MIDI integration have been added, including MIDI controllable Master Volume. Presets can now be assigned to Program Changes more quickly with the addition of a dedicated drop down menu. General reliability improvements have also been made.

AmpliTube works both as a standalone application and as a plug-in for most popular recording software. It recreates the entire guitar/bass signal chain from instrument to recording device, and features collections of gear models from the likes of Fender, Ampeg, Orange, Soldano, Seymour Duncan, Mesa Boogie, Gallien Krueger, Leslie and more, plus signature gear from artists like Slash and the late Jimi Hendrix.

iRig Stomp I/O USB pedalboard controller is ideal for live and studio use, and features a built-in audio interface. It has 4 built-in switches along with an expression pedal, and features a professional high-definition audio interface with 24-bit audio and up to 96kHz sampling rate, a combo input jack for line, instrument or mic input with phantom power, a balanced stereo output and a high quality ¼” headphone output.

The AmpliTube 4.6 update is free for all registered AmpliTube users and can be accessed from the IK website User Area in the “My Products” section.
