April 4, 2019 - IK Multimedia announces the Dimebag Darrell CFH Collection for AmpliTube® and AmpliTube CS® apps for iPad® and iPhone®. The collection is now available for iOS for the first time, and features models of the exact gear used by "Dimebag" Darrell Lance Abbott on Pantera's groundbreaking album, Cowboys From Hell. Users can enjoy nine models, including two amps, two cabinets and five stompboxes. The models are available as a la carte in-app purchases or as part of IK's new All-In Bundles 2019 - the ultimate, all-inclusive bundles for AmpliTube for iPhone and iPad.
Dimebag is considered one of the most influential guitarists of all time and a legendary, genre defining musician. IK Multimedia worked with Dime's long-time guitar tech and right hand man, Grady Champion, to precisely model all of Dime's guitar tones from the album utilizing all the personal guitar effects, amplifiers and cabinets he used while recording Cowboys From Hell. Guitarists can now play and record using the same gear and settings Dime did, on devices that are easy to carry anywhere.
Inside the Dimebag Darrell CFH Collection for AmpliTube for iPhone and iPad:
- 6-Band EQ - Six-band graphic EQ based on a unit by MXR®; used to shape and boost sound before the amp
- Pre EQ 3 - Three-Band Parametric EQ based on the Furman® PQ-3; offers great flexibility for sound shaping
- Flanger Doubler - Based on an MXR® Flanger Doubler, offering two effects in one. Primarily used by Dime in "doubler mode" to thicken in his overall tone
