IK Multimedia has pushed a full version update for AmpliTube for iPhone. The update includes features like CD quality recording, master effects, sound quality improvements, new gear in the store, Speedtrainer and more. Needless to say, it’s a major update. Best of all, it’s free for all current AmpliTube for iPhone users, with the exception of some extra features that require in-app purchases.
AmpliTube for iPhone 2 gives you a whole lot of new features. The app will now support recording at CD quality with the ability to import and export tracks. Exported tracks will appear in iTunes for you to use as you see fit. You can also email recordings directly form the app. If you decide you really like the single track recorder that you get for free, you can upgrade it to the TapeTrack 4 track recorder in-app for $9.99.
While you’re buying stuff in-app, you might as well check out the five new pedals: Compressor, Graphic EQ, Parametric EQ, Reverb and Limiter. Each is $2.99.
How about some free updates? Speedtrainer is free for all users. It’s a feature that allows you to import a track from your iPod and then slow it down or speed it up. You can modify the playback speed by up to two times in either direction without changing the pitch. This is super useful for those of us who learn songs by ear. They’ve also improved the sound quality by rederiving parts of the app from the desktop version. Presets can now be named, and you can finally get rid of that turn-your-headphones-down warning that would appear every time you open the app.
It could probably be assumed, but let it be known that IK Multimedia is hard at work updating AmpliTube for iPad. It shouldn’t be long before a similar update is released. Stay tuned for the full review of Amplitube 2. In the meantime, see our review of Amplitube for iPhone.
