IK Multimedia released Amplitube for iPad 2.0 Wednesday, an update to the effects and amp modelling software for the iPad that adds five new effects (US$2.99 each as in-app purchases) and built-in single track recording. Multitrack recording (8 tracks total) is also available as a $14.99 in-app purchase. The update also brings the other features introduced with the iPhone version of the app in November.
IK Multimedia’s patch notes:
- 5 new stomp effects (available as in-app purchase): Compressor, Graphic EQ, Parametric EQ, Reverb and Limiter
- Improved sound with DSP parts derived from AmpliTube 3 and T-RackS 3 software
- Built-in single track recorder with re-amping capabilities
- Multi-track recorder with 8 tracks and master effects section with 4 effects (available as in-app purchase)
- 2 send effects per channel (selectable among Reverb, Delay, Chorus) and 2 master effects (3-band Parametric EQ and Compressor) in the master effects section
- Export your recordings and mixes as high quality audio files or send them by e-mail as M4As
- Import songs as backing tracks directly from your iPod library on your device or your computer using file sharing or Wi-Fi
- SpeedTrainer for slow down/speed up imported songs without affecting the pitch
- New preset naming feature
- New Setup panel including input and output level controls
The update is free to owners of the app (note that the in-app purchase features), and is available now on the App Store. The full version is priced at US$19.99.
We should note that IK Multimedia let us know that in-sapp purchases aren’t working for some users — the company is waiting to actually announce the release until in-app purchases work. If you want to get a jump on the other new features, however, the app is available now for download.
