tarrtime's review"Vintage and Rare Amp Simulation"

IK Multimedia Amplitube Jimi Hendrix Edition
Amplitube Jimi Hendrix is an expansion pack for IK Multimedia Amplitube. With the introduction of Amplitube Custom Shop, individual amp models in this package can be purchased separately rather than as a bundle.
IKM Amplitube is a software plug-in that can be used inside a DAW, and can also be used as a stand-alone plug-in.
The Jimi Hendrix expansion pack is full of vintage and rare amp models of the same gear tha Jimi Hendrix used while recording his famous guitar sounds.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I have listened to a lot of Jimi Hendrix in my life, a learned to play the guitar in part by learning a lot of his songs. However, I am not necessarily a Jimi Hendrix gear-head. I wish there were a few more amp models included in this package. However, I guess its possible that Hendrix didn't use that many different amps while he recorded. Nonetheless, when I think about this expansion pack, I mostly think of it more as a vintage gear package, so if there were a few more vintage amps available then great. I probably should fault IKM for trying to be true to the Jimi Hendrix gear selection.

OVERALL OPINION

The amp models in Amplitube Jimi Hendrix are some that you will not find anywhere else. The Fender amps are super cool for adding a touch of drive/saturation for blues-rock rhythm guitar work. The Marshall JTM100 is amazing for vintage lead sounds. My favorite part of the bundle is the collection fuzz pedals. The pedals included are perfect for a raw, old-school vibe. Most other amp sim software (Guitar Rig 5, Pod Farm, etc) only include models of Fuzz Face and Big Muff Pi pedals. If you want that real-deal fuzz sound, this collection as some amazing models. My biggest complaint with all Amplitube products is the post-effects. They really need to include some better old school effects models (Pye Compressor and Helios Eq, Plate Reverb, etc.)

Hatsubai's review"Not very Hendrix sounding"

IK Multimedia Amplitube Jimi Hendrix Edition
Everybody and their mother these days seems to want to profit off of Jimi Hendrix, so it comes to no surprise when IK Multimedia tries to do the same thing. This time, they're just rehashing their standard Amplitube stuff for the Hendrix fans out there, and I honestly think they failed. To use this, you get a mic pre or some sort of interface, hook that up to your computer and then hook up your guitar to the interface. Then load up the stand alone application or the VST in your favorite DAW and you're good to go. I didn't experience any compatibility issues, so no problems there. I never read the manual, so I can't comment on that. Setting it all up is pretty easy, so no issues there.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The amp sims on this are decent, but they're nothing spectacular. The Marshall sound reminds me of those Line 6 modelers that try to emulate the Marshall sound. They basically sound nothing alike aside from some random upper mids. The feel isn't there, the way they respond in real life isn't there, and the massive air a cranked Plexi pushes out of a full stack definitely isn't there. Considering how they're marketing this towards Hendrix fans, I'd say those three things should have been the biggest things to focus on. I didn't experience any crashing with this, but I wouldn't be surprised if other people had crashing problems. It took up a decent amount of memory, but it was nothing a new computer couldn't handle.

OVERALL OPINION

If you're a fan of Jimi Hendrix, do yourself a favor and just get a real Marshall. There's no amp sim out there that can truly replicate that cranked Plexi sound. The closest you can get is the Axe-Fx, and those things cost big money. They also take some time to truly dial in. This software is just half-assed and not really worth trying out.

mooseherman's review"Already a Dated Plug-in"

IK Multimedia Amplitube Jimi Hendrix Edition
There were no compatibility issues with this guy at all, the manual explained clearly how to set this software up, it was easy. It worked well with ProTools but it also works as its own stand-alone system. However, this is kind of pointless, as you can only really use it to record, and why not use it in combination with other instruments? Anyway, the system works pretty much fine with my ProTools setup. It didn't take me too long to set up at all, and the functions were all really easy to find, edit, mess around with, etc.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The software worked pretty much perfectly. It's certainly not the most stable plug-in I've used in my time though. In fact, it's pretty old now, so I guess it's probably just the fact that plug-ins in general weren't all that great when it was released. It can be slow to load up but once your settings are good, you should be fine while tracking. I've had it a few years now but I haven't used it in a while, it works better on my current computer than it did on my last one.

OVERALL OPINION

While there are a lot of features in this amp modeling software, it doesn't really stack up. It gets really particular when it comes to effects (it models all these classic pedals like the Big Muff, wah, fuzz, octave, etc.) and it basically does everything in its power to approximate the sound of Hendrix. The fact of the matter is, though, that none of these plug-ins will make your tone sound particularly real. Plus, sounding exactly like Hendrix is impossible, as he was a master, and he would sound just like he sounds regardless of what instrument or amp he used. In terms of general amp modeling, it's been done better by newer plug-ins, and they're more stable. There's a lot of variety and it tries really hard but I'd honestly not waste my money on it as it's already kind of dated and useless.

IK Multimedia Amplitube Jimi Hendrix Edition
I had no problem for installation. The only problem I encounter with the products from IK Multimedia Amplitube is that it does not stand alone on my PC. This should be something all bte but I have not taken time to find the reason. In VST, there is no problem and that is how I use them.

As I indicated to dj Amplitube Fender, I do not like the interface for AmpliTube point of view shot of convenient.The pedals on the floor trs is funny (and trs class RVer a moment), but I have prfrerais on one screen all paramtres that make the sound (effects, amp, cabinet, pedals ,...) .

Regarding the manual, I do not need and I do not know if there is one.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

No problem of stability or performance, cel turns trs trs trs well with low latency (but my PC is quite powerful).

OVERALL OPINION

I used this app a whole weekend so it's an opinion rcente APRS use. I've tried before and Guitar Rig 3 Revealver home Peavey. They each have their quality and default but my impression is:
- Trs Revealver is good in terms of quality sound reproduction amplifiers but hard blows from the grate. I find that certain cues are rated poorly Dfine as if the sound was lost (see anything wrong with the Noise Gate rglage I prcise).
- Guitar Rig 3 is trs trs well, many possibilities and many indeed an alie rgonomie trs enjoyable, however I think sounds a little too numriques (cold ).
- Amplitube Fender is for me the most stunning soft in terms of reproduction of an amplifier with outstanding notes DEFINITIONS formulations and effects of all beauty,
- AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix is ​​also trs good quality and it makes sense even if it is much less versatile.

I like Hendrix but I'm not an expert so I would not try to comment if the sounds are ralistes albums over the Matre, all fawn even if the effects and amps, IK Multimedia does not deliver the hands of Jimi with the CD. I think with all that stuff there is something more than CRER sounds correct and it's really a pleasure to play with a.

For me, the price is unbeatable quality report since c'tait offered to buy Amplitube Fender.

I do not know if I would have bought it because dumanque versatility but I would pass a soft cot trs really nice and I vaisutiliser often I think.

I use it for 1 year.

I like the vintage sound that leaves me ... The sound is not clean like Guita Rig 3 or POD X3 Live ... However, it has a trs characters INTERESTED

I think this software is a good choice for Audible broaden the palette, if you got other DJ software. But if you want to use it as the only software, it is not pro or trs trs versatile ..

- No incompatibilitbr /> - easy to configure, from AmpliTube 2, the interface of the amp sim Ik multimedia is very similar to that of guitar rig.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

- Yes has not rowing, but must not ignite and open three occurrences at the same time and output, put in 1 input (WRITING), back up or write down the pRSET you love.
- Exceptional ism accappella not, but quite usable in musical situation, whether to come back with a good guitar signal choy and a guitar dgueux not, there are excellent clean sounds, bright or crmeux. Sounds crunch, fuzz and octave snatch the puck, provided little that bothers refine rglages because pRSET not all usable immediately. (Got to my fender Mex)

OVERALL OPINION

It's been two weeks now I use it. jOperation also AmpliTube. it's a good derived from AmpliTube VST in live and studio but very specific. the sound's not bad. we have two choices preset. or by song title or by Jimi amp. is doing very well after queleque days of research.
very well to play the Jimi Hendrix with the effects of each song and even the rhythm of the solo and différancier ...
I Prefair AmpliTube polivalance for its sound and the live version of AmpliTube to live.
