May 12, 2011 – Modena, Italy –


IK Multimedia has released AmpliTube 2.2, an update of its flagship iOS app, AmpliTube, the mobile guitar rig and recording studio for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The free update adds the five vocal effects of IK’s acclaimed VocaLive app which are now available for in-app purchase just like the popular gear models from AmpliTube Fender™. With the new add-ons, AmpliTube for iPhone and iPad continue to evolve as a full-fledged mobile processing and recording studio apps for all music creation, composition and production needs.

The new vocal effects now available inside AmpliTube 2.2 include Choir (a 3-part harmonizer), Morph (a pitch and formant shifter), Pitch Fix (an automatic tuner for correction or production effects), Double (a voice doubler) and De-Esser. AmpliTube 2.2 also adds the vocal canceller features (NO VOICE) from VocaLive to its SpeedTrainer interface – where you can slow down or speed up backing tracks without changing their pitch – that is included free in all versions of the AmpliTube mobile app. This not only removes the vocal from an existing track, it can also remove the guitar solo.
