IK Multimedia StealthPlug CS Custom Shop
Guitar and bass players can use two new packages from IK Multimedia: The StealthPlug CS and StealthPedal CS "Custom Shop" Systems.
These two new packages provide players with an audio interface for their computer and the Guitar & Bass tone shaping software system AmpliTube Custom Shop.
The core of the Custom Shop package is the AmpliTube Custom Shop software, IK's tone software that allows players to build virtual guitar rigs one piece at a time. It comes with 24 pieces of gear, a digital chromatic tuner and two complete guitar/bass signal chains for mono and/or stereo operation. The AmpliTube Custom Shop is based upon AmpliTube 3. It has the same operation and feature set, and can be used as a plug-in for virtually every DAW (digital audio workstation) or as a standalone tone machine for live performance and recording. It also sports a 4-track recorder for capturing ideas.
The AmpliTube Custom Shop is open 24/7, with gear from Fender, Ampeg, Orange, Soldano, T-Rex, Seymour Duncan, Groove Tubes and more. With AmpliTube Custom Shop, players now have access to every piece of gear from all AmpliTube collections: AmpliTube 3, AmpliTube Fender, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, AmpliTube Metal and Ampeg SVX; plus they'll find additional pieces and "collections" of gear from various manufacturers.

The StealthPedal USB Audio Interface and Controller

Plus, it features "smart jacks" that will auto-detect and adjust for different types of instrument inputs. StealthPedal also works with keyboards, drum machines and other audio input devices.
Controlling software parameters with the StealthPedal can take place through AmpliTube Custom Shop's integration and MIDI control. "Right-click" on any software knob, button or adjustment to assign it to a function on the pedal. The StealthPedal also comes with a MIDI control app that lets you use the StealthPedal with any MIDI compatible application.
