This one’s for all the Queen fans out there.
IK Multimedia has just announced the release of their new AmpliTube Brian May plugin for Mac/PC, iPhone, and iPad! The iconic Queen guitarist is known for his explosive and melodic playing on some of the most well-known rock and pop songs to date, and the new plugin seeks to capture some of that essence just for you! The AmpliTube Brian May features:
- BM 30 offers three amps with the effects chain in a Wet-Dry-Wet configuration to match Brian May’s iconic setup. The BM DK is a model of the small “Deacy” amp that became the trademark sound of many Queen songs.
- 2×12 BM 30 Blue (named the 2×12 BM1 in the Brian May collection for iOS) is a triple cabinet based on the cab section of a VOX AC30 equipped with Celestion™ Alnico Blue speakers. The 2×12 BM 30 H70 (2×12 BM2 in the Brian May collection for iOS) is with Celestion G12H Anniversary speakers. In addition, the 1×6 BM DK provides the cabinet section of the BM DK amp, featuring a 6” speaker.
- Red Special, created from a detailed study of Brian May’s famous guitar, helps add the unique tonality and controls of the Red Special itself. Based on the original KAT® Treble Booster, the Treble Booster enriches guitar tone similar to Brian May’s by boosting it before it reaches the amp.
- May Wah was based on a rackmount Dunlop® Cry Baby® wah, modeled in the exact configurations Brian May uses to shape his tone, while the FOX Phaser was based on the unique and distinctive sound of the fOXX® Foot Phaser.
- Star Gate is a noise gate that helps clean up the signal chain, minimizing the noise feeding Brian’s unique amp and pedal setup.
- Discography presets and more!
