IK MULTIMEDIA Releases New AmpliTube BRIAN MAY

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!

You can learn more about and get your hands on the AmpliTube Brian May plugin on the IK Multimedia website. Mama mia, what a score!
