September 9, 2021 – IK Multimedia is pleased to offer a FREE update to all AmpliTube 5 users, premiering virtual versions of the four AmpliTube X-GEAR pedals to demo and purchase, and to anticipate the imminent hardware release.
The process for demoing X-GEAR is the same as for any gear in AmpliTube 5 with the same 72-hour trial period, allowing users to fully test the 16 effects and different controls of each pedal.
Furthermore, users can choose between purchasing any virtual X-GEAR pedal separately at $/€149.99* via the Custom Shop, or grabbing both the hardware pedal and its virtual version from the IK store for $/€299.99.
*All prices excluding taxes
And coming soon with the release of the hardware pedals, users will be able to save presets in AmpliTube 5 and transfer them back and forth to the physical units using the X-GEAR Librarian to bring their studio sound onstage.
For existing users, to get updated on Mac/PC, launch the IK Product Manager, go to Manage My Products, and use the Update button next to AmpliTube 5.
New users can download the free, expandable AmpliTube 5 Custom Shop from: https://www.ikmultimedia.com/demodownload
