The NAMM Show, January 16, 2020 - IK Multimedia, in partnership with rock icon Joe Satriani, presents IK's newest artist signature collection, AmpliTube® Joe Satriani. Available for Mac/PC, iPhone and iPad, it offers users a convenient way to play, practice and record - anytime, anywhere - using precise models of the guitarist's amps and pedals that were created alongside Satriani himself.
AmpliTube Joe Satriani reflects the guitarist's reputation as a tone and gear connoisseur, featuring models of both classic and artist signature pieces, along with some fan favorites. Each model was created to Satriani's exact specifications, for an authentic user experience.
