Game-changing guitar recording
The Pure circuit delivers completely transparent and ultra-accurate sound, with 117 dB (A) dynamic range. JFET adds subtle harmonic enhancement for a rounder, warmer sound without sacrificing dynamic range.
Active bypasses unneeded stages for completely transparent sound when used with active pickups. While patent-pending Z-Tone variable impedance Hi-Z input re-shapes the sound of instruments to dramatically reshape the tone of your guitar, or precisely match the impedance of a virtual gear model.
Front-panel Amp output for easy re-amping, with no need for a direct box and no ground loops or noise. The front-panel 1/4” return lets you add external pedal FX without the need to re-wire rear inputs.
You’ve also got a built-in tuner to keep your instrument in tune throughout recording sessions – handy eh? Finally, 2 inputs for expression pedals or single/switches gives you real-time control over virtual rigs.
Includes over £1000 worth of software
Over 140 ultrarealistic models of iconic guitar amps, cabs, FX and more thanks to AmpliTube 4 Deluxe’s expansive library. You’ve also got 10 T-RackS Singles for mixing instruments, including EQ, compressors, reverb, delays, mic modelling and more.
Finally, you’ll get a copy of Ableton’s Live 10 Lite recording software, a go-to in the industry among live performers and electronic music artists.
