(PRESS RELEASE): IK Multimedia is proud to announce the addition of the Morley® Contour Wah pedal to the AmpliTube Custom Shop lineup. With it, the Custom Shop now features over 280 software emulations from 17 of the most legendary brands in guitar and bass amplification and effects. This makes it the largest collection of downloadable virtual guitar and bass gear on earth, with a catalogue that stretches from boutique to mainstream, British to American, blues to metal and everything in between. Now musicians can have 24/7 access to even more of the most desirable amplifiers, stomp boxes and effects of all time.
The latest addition to the AmpliTube Custom Shop catalogue is the powerful Morley Contour Wah Pedal, one of the most modern-sounding wah pedals on the market: it features an array of controls that allow it be tweaked to suit any style or sound, players can use its tunable Contour and Level controls to alter its character from warm and mellow to bright and cutting. It also features an Auto-Off feature, which lets you set it for a mid-range boost that's perfect for guitar leads even when your foot is off the pedal - something you cannot do with the physical version.
