IK Multimedia has announced that AmpliTube X-GEAR has been made available as a free download for AmpliTube 2 Live users and StealthPlug users.

X-GEAR is the first completely expandable guitar amp and effects modeling software system, available as a plug-in and standalone version for Mac/PC, that allows mixing and matching between all the gear models from all current and future “Powered by AmpliTube” products in a single host interface; providing seamless control over every parameter directly from IK’s StompIO revolutionary USB floor controller and audio interface.

By integrating AmpliTube 2 Live into X-GEAR, users will get instant access to major new features like:

  • 5 modules including: Tuner, Stomp, Amp, Cabinet and Rack effects (instead of 2 modules).
  • Double rig with 8 series/parallel configurations (instead of the single fixed rig).
  • 1 new Amp and Cabinet (bringing the number of available Amps and Cabinets to 4).
  • Custom amp building (thanks to separate Amp Pre, EQ and Power Section now available) now offering up to 192 different amp combinations.
  • More controls like Ambience in the cabinet module and advanced Automation.
  • Possibility to integrate AmpliTube 2 Live with other “powered by AmpliTube” software applications, including AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, Ampeg® SVX and AmpliTube Metal into a single interface with full mixing and matching between the included gear models.
  • Seamless integration with StompIO advanced USB floor controller and audio interface for using your computer live like the most powerful multi-FX system ever made.
