Peavey AmpKit

Peavey Electronics and Agile Partners announced AmpKit, a guitar amp and effects iPhone application, and AmpKit LiNK, a high fidelity audio interface for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

The AmpKit LiNK is an iPhone, iPod touch and iPad interface for electric guitar, bass, or any line level source, with an output that can be connected to headphones, powered speakers or a PA. AmpKit LiNK’s CrossTalk Eliminator is designed to solve the feedback problem inherent in existing unpowered iPhone interfaces.

The interface can be used with any recording, processing, or tuning application, including Agile Partners’ GuitarToolkit, one of the highest-rated applications in the iTunes App Store.

The AmpKit application is available for free from the iTunes App Store.

AmpKit features include:

Starting with the Peavey ValveKing amp that comes free with AmpKit, AmpKit offers amps based on legends, amps that roar, amps that crunch when you turn them up, the company says.

Each amp in AmpKit is modeled after the real amp’s actual circuitry and includes individual controls that match up with the most important knobs and switches on the amp. Some amps include multiple channels: the Peavey ValveKing, for example, includes both Clean and Lead channels, which is almost like getting two amps instead of one. Add new amps to AmpKit through the in-app Gear Store, making AmpKit infinitely extendable. With 11 amps and 19 amp channels already available.

With a total of 15 available pedals, you can run as many as a dozen or even more effects pedals at a time. Available effects include: multiple distortion and fuzz pedals, reverb, delay, 10-band EQ, octave, chorus, flanger, phaser, vibrato, noise gate, and compressor. The free AmpKit app includes three pedals, with 12 additional pedals available in the Gear Store and more to come.

The free AmpKit app includes two cabinets for free: the Peavey ValveKing 4×12 and ValveKing 112. You can add up to 11 more cabinets as you add amps through the Gear Store.

The free AmpKit app includes two mics. Six additional mics are available in the Gear Store, from dynamic mics to condenser mics.

“Besides its powerful, ultra-low latency amp, pedal, cabinet, and mic simulations, AmpKit includes all the tools you need for a complete guitar audio studio, ” the company says.

Recording & Reamping: AmpKit allows you to record as you play, and since it records both dry, unprocessed guitar audio and wet sound that has run through the amp and effects chain, you can actually take your recording and “reamp” it through a different amp setup.

Backing Tracks: Upload songs and play along, or record your own backing tracks.

Tuner & Metronome: AmpKit includes tuner and metronome capabilities.

The AmpKit LiNK guitar interface will be available for pre-order from the Peavey online store as well as from dealers, distributors and retail stores for $39.99. The AmpKit app for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad will be available in the Apple iTunes App Store.
