September 9, 2021 – IK Multimedia is pleased to offer a FREE update to all AmpliTube 5 users, premiering virtual versions of the four AmpliTube X-GEAR pedals to demo and purchase, and to anticipate the imminent hardware release.

Try X-GEAR pedals in AmpliTube

With version 5.1, virtual X-GEAR pedals are now available in AmpliTube 5 via the Custom Shop with immediate access to X-SPACE, X-TIME, X-DRIVE and X-VIBE.

The process for demoing X-GEAR is the same as for any gear in AmpliTube 5 with the same 72-hour trial period, allowing users to fully test the 16 effects and different controls of each pedal.

Furthermore, users can choose between purchasing any virtual X-GEAR pedal separately at $/€149.99* via the Custom Shop, or grabbing both the hardware pedal and its virtual version from the IK store for $/€299.99.
*All prices excluding taxes

And coming soon with the release of the hardware pedals, users will be able to save presets in AmpliTube 5 and transfer them back and forth to the physical units using the X-GEAR Librarian to bring their studio sound onstage.
