While IK Multimedia can’t simulate the feeling of long black curly hair and a sweet pair of shades, they can give you some of the same tools Slash uses to rock out with his iPhone. IK Multimedia just released a AmpliTube Slash for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. It’s a collection of Slash’s “apocalyptic signature sounds and tones,” including the Marshal JCM Slash Silver Jubilee amp and Slash’s signature “Wah-Distortion” pedal. But they didn’t stop there. The app is full of great sounding gear, and did you notice it includes Marshall amps? Yeah, I did. Best yet, if you already own AmpliTube 2.5 for iPhone or iPad, you can buy the gear via in-app purchase and add it to an already stellar app. It’s all just $9.99 for either the app for iPhone, app for iPad or the in app purchase in AmpliTube for iPhone or iPad.

IK Multimedia and Slash have been working together to reproduce the sounds that help keep Slash himself inspired. In fact, Slash not only uses the gear modeled in AmpliTube Slash, he actually made use of AmpliTube and the iRig while on tour to, well, here read about it:

“My new album, Apocalyptic Love, was entirely written while we were on tour,” states Slash, adding, “If we are not performing we’re traveling, so there is little time for creating music. By using my iPhone along with IK’s AmpliTube and iRig I was able to capture whatever ideas I had swimming in my head, usually around 4am.”

“AmpliTube iRig comes in really handy for on-the-go practicing, recording, or just jamming on different ideas – even if it’s on the bus – it’s right with me all the time,” Slash adds. “I’ll do some tweaks on the Marshalls, but there are also different effects that are available including distortion, chorus, auto wah and more.”

Slash’s gear, whether you get it with AmpliTube Slash or inside of the regular AmpliTube app, includes the Marshall JCM Slash Edition Silver Jubilee and the Marshall AFD100 amplifiers, the 1960 Marshal speaker cabinet, and Slash’s signature Delay, Gate, Octave/Fuzz, Chorus, Booster and Wah/Distortion pedal effects.

You can buy the iPhone app, iPad app or in app collection for AmpliTube 2.5 now for $9.99.

  2. This is the only ampsim app with official Marshall amps.
    Naturally it would be Slash’s official app!
    Every guitarist needs this.
