NAMM 2011 PRESS RELEASE: AmpliTube is announcing the formation of strategic partnerships with Fender™, Ampeg®, Orange®, Soldano™, Seymour Duncan™, Gallien-Krueger®, Jet City Amplification™, THD® and T-Rex®.

See what each company had to say about partnering up with IK Multimedia:

"Unlike other guitar modelling software, IK Multimedia developed the realistic sounds of the Fender™ gear modeled in AmpliTube with the master tone-team at Fender Musical Instruments." - Shane Nicholas, Senior Marketing Manager for Guitar Amps, Fender

"For 60 years, Ampeg has been and continues to be the standard in bass amplification. We, at Loud Technologies, are excited about this opportunity to continue working alongside IK Multimedia to offer the Ampeg tone to musicians in a software format." - John Boudreau, Vice President of Music Gear Group, LOUD Technologies

"Our tube amplifiers are best known worldwide for their distinct overdriven sound and razor sharp tonal accuracy. We are proud to have set this industry benchmark, and therefore we would only partner with IK Multimedia if we were certain that together we could recreate that special sound quality that musicians have come to know and love from Soldano." - Michael Soldano, Founder, Soldano

"After 40 years of making superb amplifiers, we are confident and excited to bring the dynamic brand of Orange amps into software platforms with IK Multimedia." - Damon Waller, Managing Director, Orange Music Electronic Company

"Gallien-Krueger's legacy is legendary bass amplification, and we are excited to be working with IK Multimedia's technology to further the brand of our product line for the future of musicians." - Bob Gallien, President and CEO, Gallien-Krueger

"As today's musicians increasingly turn toward technology, this newly formed partnership between Jet City Amplification and IK Multimedia is an exciting opportunity to bring our classic tube tones to digital recording enthusiasts." - Doug White, Marketing and Product Development Manager, Jet City Amplification

"THD Electronics is known for excellence in audio products and tube amplification, and in our experience it makes sense to work with a leader in software like IK Multimedia to spread our brands of amps and effects for guitar and bass musicians." - Ed DeGenaro, Vice President, THD Electronics
