AmpKit 1.3 Features Trace Elliot, the First Modern Bass Amp Modeled for the iOS Platform

The new  version 1.3 of AmpKit, the award-winning iOS guitar and bass amp modeling application from Agile Partners, makes  Trace Elliot® the first modern bass amplification system to be modeled for the iOS platform, and the most feature-rich amplifier ever modeled in AmpKit.

For the first time, bass players who use the iOS platform to practice, perform and record can use a fully featured, modern, world-class bass amplifier and cabinet, modeled after the Trace Elliot  1215™combo. Players get all the sophistication they have come to love about the real Trace Elliot amps, including the switchable valve (tube) drive circuit for fat bass distortion and the signature Pre Shape circuit that delivers the classic Trace Elliot tone. Trace Elliot is regarded as the first true specialty bass amplification system.

AmpKit's Trace Elliot model also includes the famous Trace Elliot 12-band Graphic Equalizer, tuned for bass frequencies, plus the optimized dual-band compressor and a convolution-based simulation of the 1x15 cabinet featuring a specially designed loudspeaker and high-frequency horn-all with the high-quality tone fidelity musicians have come to expect in AmpKit.

AmpKit Version 1.3 also debuts the new breathtaking, 3.1 million-pixel Retina display, which gives users eye-popping graphics of AmpKit's extensive library of virtual amplifier models. This update also includes extended support for digital guitar interfaces, updated headset input compensation to support the new iPad (3rd Generation) and iPhone 4S, and the ability to save setups for all channels on multi-channel amps.

AmpKit+ Version 1.3 is available now for only $9.99 on the iTunes Store. The Trace Elliot 1215 amp model can also be purchased separately for $3.99. The original  AmpKit app is a free download.

Peavey® and Agile Partners, a 2010 Apple® Design Award winner, recently announced the Peavey®  AmpKit LiNK™ HD, the next generation of the popular Peavey  AmpKit LiNK iOS interface for guitar and bass. Based on USB digital audio technology, the 100% digital Peavey AmpKit LiNK HD eliminates crosstalk and feedback for pristine high fidelity, even with authentic high-gain amp models in AmpKit.

AmpKit LiNK HD features a host of innovations that make virtual guitar amplification-and gigging with your iOS device-more convenient than ever. AmpKit LiNK HD will charge your iPad®, iPhone®, or iPod® touch while you play when connected to the optional AC adapter. And with AmpKit LiNK HD, you can send your signal to a headphone output and a line output, making it the ultimate in convenience and ideal for gigging.

AmpKit LiNK HD connects an electric guitar or bass directly into the dock of an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch via a snug-fitting cable, so it won't disconnect while in use. Together, AmpKit LiNK and AmpKit provide guitar and bass players with a powerful, convenient way to jam wherever they go.

The original Peavey AmpKit LiNK is available now from authorized Peavey retailers. The Peavey AmpKit LiNK HD will be available in Q2 2012. Please visit  www.peavey.com/dealerlocator to find a dealer near you.
