March 2009, Modena, Italy – IK Multimedia and Fender Musical Instruments Corporation are proud to announce that AmpliTube Fender is now shipping!

AmpliTube Fender is the only official Fender® amp and FX software suite, with a selection of 45 of the most sought-after classic and modern Fender® guitar and bass amps, cabinets, stompboxes and rack effects of all time (including must-have masterpieces like the ‘65 Twin Reverb®, ‘59 Bassman® LTD, ‘57 Deluxe™, ‘64 Vibroverb™ Custom, ‘65 Deluxe Reverb®, Vibratone, Super-Sonic™, Metalhead™, Fender® Blender™, Phaser, Fuzz-Wah and many others).

AmpliTube Fender is the result of two years of intense collaboration between the tone-gurus at Fender® and the software and audio experts at IK Multimedia. For the first time, the industry leaders in the real and virtual amplification market have teamed up to offer a totally new software experience of amps and effects, subjected to the same testing and tuning process of the hardware counterpart with the goal of offering the exact same sound quality and a level of realism never heard before in a software product.

The accuracy and wide variety of Fender tones achieved make AmpliTube Fender® the ideal choice for any guitar and bass player or producer seeking nothing less than the most accurate software amplification possible on their computer. Shane Nicholas, Fender®’s senior marketing manager for guitar amps said:

"An electric guitar is nothing without amp tone, and Fender amplifiers are the standard by which great tones are measured. The thrill of plugging into a great tube amp will never die, but the convenience of plugging right into your computer is really compelling, and that's not going away either. That's why we partnered up with IK Multimedia to offer recording enthusiasts a quality software suite that models the sound, feel, and look of the best Fender amps. This is the real-deal palette of iconic Fender tones that will inspire creativity and help you make great music."
