Educators get a huge price break on this guitar and amp modeling software molded after the rig of the man they called Jimi.
AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix is an award-winning software re-creation of the complete guitar amp and effects rig of the late rock pioneer. IK has gone the extra mile in accurately modeling all the most important components of the Hendrix rig, not only using proprietary AmpliTube 2 DSM (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) technology at its best, but collecting all the original vintage stomps, amplifiers, and cabinets, fine tuning the software emulations by ear with accurate craftmanship to achieve incredibly realistic modeling results. The collection includes 4 amp models, 7 cab models, 5 mic models, 9 stomp effect models, and 4 rack effect models that bring back the sound of the Woodstock era.
AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix offers the same 2 series/parallel rig structure of AmpliTube 2. It ensures a complete and flexible rig structure that can be used to recreate the authentic tones of popular Hendrix tunes. Since the modeled gear in this product is in such high demand by guitarists, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix is also a fantastic tool for many styles of modern rock music, from hard rock to punk, alternative to progressive and pop.
The Jimi Hendrix rig
Jimi Hendrix was fundamental in the development of modern guitar amplification and guitar effects, marking the evolution of modern electric guitar sound. In four short years, from 1966, when he started his rehearsal sessions with the Jimi Hendrix Experience, to 1970, when he died, he contributed to the revolution of the way music was made and electric guitar was played, leaving a permanent mark on the generations of guitarists and musicians that followed. He is constantly named by guitar and music magazines as the number one guitarist of all time.
Hendrix's sound is a unique mix of high volume, feedback control, and an exclusive, personal usage of guitar effects which were a breakthrough for the time. He was one of the first guitarists to experiment with the full expressive possibilities of electronic effects, which were a fundamental part of his sound. Electronic effects were a technological novelty in the 60s. Semiconductor electronics was its infancy and the very first commercially available germanium transistors introduced in the mid-50s gradually replaced tubes during the next two decades.
AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix 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.
9 Stomp Effect Models:
The Wah 46 is a model of the most famous wah-wah used by Jimi Hendrix which became his signature sound in masterpiece tunes like "Voodoo Child." Although the original had no auto-wah features, this additional functionality has been added for a more convenient usage when played on a computer. The original is considered to be one of the best sounding wah-wahs of all time.
Uni-V (based on Univox Uni-Vibe)
This was a chorus/rotating-speaker simulator that was introduced in 1969 and used predominantly in live performances. This created a swirling effect quite similar to the Leslie speaker cabinet but with the addition of speed control. This effect was employed on tracks such as "Hey Baby (The Land of the New Rising Sun)," "Earth Blues," and "Machine Gun." A vintage Uni-Vibe is in such high demand it sells for over a thousand dollars, if you can even find one.
Fuzz Age (based on Arbiter Fuzz Face)
This was the main fuzz box he used, a classic germanium transistor fuzz effect. Often combined with a wah, this effect produced permanent sustain and endless distortion. The original Fuzz Face is one of the most collectible fuzz boxes ever.
Octa-V (based on Roger Mayer Octavia)
This effect was first used on "Purple Haze" and "Fire." It is a fuzz box with frequency-doubling circuitry that produces a second note an octave above the fundamental note.
RightFuzz (based on Mosrite Fuzzrite)
A highly sought-after, rare fuzz box, it was one of the first commercially available floor effect units, making its first appearance in 1966. It doesn't get any more vintage than this when it comes to stomp pedals.
FuzzOne (based on Maestro FuzzTone)
Hendrix began using this fuzz box while playing in New York City before founding the Experience. Its sounds can be heard in the enormously popular Rolling Stones song, "Satisfaction."
XS Fuzz (based on Roger Mayer Axis fuzz), Class Fuzz (based on Roger Mayer Classic fuzz)
Jimi used many fuzz box units like these vintage models which add to the powerful sound palette that AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix can offer.
Opto-Tremolo (based on Fender Opto-Tremolo)
4 Amp ModelsBritish Lead S100
Based on the Marshall 1959 JTM100 Super Lead that Hendrix is generally associated with. Jimi often used multiple amp heads (up to 6) looping them together to get more power, a setup that can be recreated in AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix because of its dual rig capability.
American Vintage B
Based on the Fender Bassman, an amp that influenced many of its successors and was used in the studio recording of "Voodoo Child."
American Vintage T
Based on the Fender Twin Reverb, this was Jimi's amp of choice during '65 through '66. It included a spring reverb and was equipped with 2x12" J.B. Lansing speakers.
American Vintage D
Based on the Fender Dual-Showman, Hendrix acquired this 100 watt amp in 1968 and used it in '68 and '69 with the Experience tour together with an assortment of other amps. The amp sported a built-in spring reverb unit and originally came with 2x15" J.B. Lansing speakers.
