Amplitube for iPad Updated with New Effects, Recording

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.
