AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition is a cooperative effort between Authentic Hendrix and IK Multimedia. Authentic Hendrix was founded in the late '90s by Al Hendrix and his daughter, Janie, to curate and promote Jimi's extensive recorded legacy. AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition is the first guitar amp and effects modeling software focusing on Jimi Hendrix and can be used not only to recreate the authentic tones of popular Hendrix tunes, but also for many styles of modern rock music from hard rock to punk, alternative, progressive and pop.
AmpliTube 2 Jimi Hendrix Edition features 9 vintage stomp effects, 4 vintage amp models, and 7 cabinets. Also included are 4 rack effects (Rotary Speaker, Stereo Reverb, Parametric EQ, and Tube Compressor), increasing the tonal flexibility of the product and allowing you to sculpt the sound even further. The Jimi Hendrix Edition can also expand the available stomps, amps and cabinets inside AmpliTube 2. By integrating the two products you can double the amount of vintage stomp box models inside your AmpliTube 2 rig and add some of the collectible amps and cabinets that guitarists crave the most.
Jimi Hendrix was fundamental in the development of modern guitar amplification and guitar effects. In four short years (1966-1970), he contributed to change the way music was made and how electric guitar was played, leaving a permanent mark on the generations of guitarists and musicians that followed. Hendrix's sound is a mix of feedback control and a unique, personal usage of guitar effects which was a breakthrough for its time.
IK has modeled all the most important components of the Hendrix rig not only using proprietary AmpliTube 2 DSM (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) technology, but collecting all the original vintage stomps, amplifiers and cabinets of the same period and fine tuning the software emulations by ear with accurate craftsmanship to achieve realistic modeling results.
