IK Multimedia has announced AmpliTube Brian May for Mac/PC, iPhone, and iPad. Both feature precise models of the exact live and studio gear used by the guitarist from the iconic band Queen – all recreated in collaboration with Brian May himself.
From Brian’s treble booster to his three-amp live setup and carefully curated effects selection, guitarists can enjoy new amp, cab and stompbox models in a package, along with presets covering his discography. Each model was created with the supervision of Brian May and his long-time technical team, to replicate his rig.
Available in desktop app and plug-in for any DAW, AmpliTube Brian May offers up to 11 new models including two amps, three cabinets, and up to six stompbox effects. Included are offerings such as a new pedal modeling Brian’s Red Special guitar and a model of the home-built “Deacy” Amp (with user adjustable battery power) originally created by Queen bassist John Deacon, after modifying an old radio. Other highlights incorporate his famous triple-amp live setup; tone-shaping effects; and even a harmonizer for nailing those Queen stacked leads in a single take.
AmpliTube Brian May (for Mac/PC) runs inside AmpliTube Custom Shop, a free download available to all. The new models are available now for purchase as a bundle from the Custom Shop, the IK Multimedia online store and from IK authorized dealers worldwide for $99.99.
No previous purchase of AmpliTube is required. The new models will show up as an optional purchase for existing users of AmpliTube 4 upon updating to the latest version.
The Brian May Collection (iPhone and iPad) is available via in-app purchase from within AmpliTube CS for iPhone or iPad, for $19.99. Individual models may also be purchased a la carte (Stomp FX – $3.99 each; amps – $6.99 each). All models are also part of IK’s All-In Bundle 2019 collection, which is available for in-app purchase.
