Sweet! Yes folks, and all in one packages is out for us musicians! If you remember my last post on the AmpliTube’s iRig, I thought it was pretty useful for playing around with different sounds and even used it while playing outdoors using my batter amp. The only thing that has been missing is the ability to multi track record. I downloaded a simple 4-track recorder on my iphone and was trying to find an easy way to use the ipad as my amp/effects box and the iphone as the multi-track recorder. Well the heck with that!
AmpliTube 2, from IKMedia which just dropped yesterday has a built in 4 track recorder! Yea its has a bunch of other cool things like Import songs as backing tracks directly from user iPod library, which is cool, and a SpeedTrainer allows players to slow down/speed up imported songs, which is also good, but really that 4 track is what has me excited.
Actually, I should give them some props here. In my review of the iRig , I complained that I could not simply bring in a track from itunes. I even sent this feedback to the company and they said, just wait.. That fix is coming and some other things that will blow your mind…. They were right.
Now I have not had a change to download this and try it out… Hey look, I have a live outside this blog, I’m busy! But I will tonight. Believe it.
