IK Multimedia has announced the release of AmpliTube MESA/Boogie for Mac/PC, a collaboration between IK Multimedia and MESA Engineering that brings some of the most legendary tones from the original boutique manufacturer’s amplifiers and cabinets to AmpliTube Custom Shop.
Now guitarists, producers, engineers and anyone needing the power of “in-the-box” professional amplifier software can enjoy modeled versions of several of MESA/Boogie’s most famous high-gain sounds via 5 inspiring amplifiers and cabinets. These exciting new co-developed models deliver everything from gorgeous sparkling clean sounds to the percussive aggression and tight crunch of the Rectifier series to the violin-like sustain of the Mark series to the ultra-flexible mid-gain British leanings of the TransAtlantic TA-30, and everything in between.
This first-ever officially authorized by MESA® line-up includes models of the classic Boogie V-Curve EQ’d crunch rhythm and singing lead voice of both the MARK III and MARK IV as well as the crushing gain of the Dual Rectifier and Triple Rectifier – amps that have ruled the airwaves for almost two decades. And as an added bonus, the TransAtlantic TA-30 (MESA’s upscale tribute to the classic British EL84 legacy) is included as well. It roams the elusive clean and medium gain territories with finesse and attitude.
And, like all AmpliTube virtual gear, these models have been carefully crafted to sound, look and perform just like their hardware counterparts. Each model has been meticulously scrutinized, worked, re-worked and approved by the R&D Team at Mesa Engineering. AmpliTube MESA/Boogie also comes with over 100 factory and artist presets to get you started, with additional presets available in the AmpliTube Preset XChange on the IK web site. The addition of these inspiring MESA/Boogie models to AmpliTube Custom Shop means the world’s biggest shop of officially authorized virtual gear just got even bigger.
AmpliTube MESA/Boogie for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available for purchase for the introductory price of 99.99 EUR / $99.99 USD (100 Custom Shop gear credits) until August 31st, 2015 (regular $149.99 USD / 150 Custom Shop gear credits).
