IK Multimedia has introduced a collection of 4 new boutique digital effects pedals covering distortion, modulation, delay and reverb.

Each pedal in the AmpliTube X-GEAR series features 16 different effects, drawn from the most popular AmpliTube models and all-new reverb and delay algorithms, accompanied by an exclusive virtual X-GEAR version of the exact same effects.

Users can record, tweak settings and save presets back to the hardware pedal with virtual versions in AmpliTube 5 (SE version included), allowing you to move between the studio and stage seamlessly with a world-class tone you can take anywhere.

AmpliTube X-GEAR pedals cover the 4 realms of guitar effects processing. There’s X-DRIVE distortion and X-VIBE modulation, which offer a range of iconic, must-have analog pedal effects – all recreated with our finest algorithms ever.

Custom-created by the IK team just for these pedals, X-TIME delay and X-SPACE reverb feature cutting-edge, studio-grade effects algorithms. All X-GEAR pedals share the same high-performance hardware and pioneering DSP for unsurpassed sound quality.
