Classic Fender tube tone
The Fender Collection 2 for AmpliTube is the ultimate collection of original Fender amplifiers and reissues from the 1950s and 1960s.
Take a trip back in time when the electric guitar and bass were new… when a "what if" mindset and some pretty wild and crazy ideas lead to some of the most toneful machines ever produced by one company, machines used to completely redesign the musical landscape from that point in time until today.
In Fender Collection 2 you'll get all of the glorious "tweeds" from the '57 Custom Series, a refined, player-centric take on a classic platform that includes the '57 Deluxe, the '57 Champ, '57 Pro, '57 Twin and '57 Bandmaster.
Plus you get a spot-on model of an original 1953 Bassman and a 1965 blackface Super Reverb.
Made for AmpliTube
Fender Collection 2 for AmpliTube is an officially certified collection of Fender gear that works inside of the world's best-selling guitar and bass tone studio - AmpliTube for Mac & PC. You'll get all of the glorious guitar and bass tones from these legendary and modern machines, plus the ability to tweak every aspect of them. In AmpliTube 4, you can use the Cab Room to completely customize your setup by changing the recording space, microphone techniques and choices, speaker cabinet and individual speaker swap, plus the ability to fine-tune the mix and balance in the cab room mixer section.
And, as a collection available inside of AmpliTube 4, you can mix and match amps, cabs or complete rigs with other available gear for endless tone possibilities.
Dynamic Interaction Modeling™
We've been creating digital models of analog gear for over 20 years now, which in tech time is like 137 decades. So really, we've learned a lot about what makes great sound in the digital domain. For Fender Collection 2, we developed a completely new type of modeling mojo we like to call Dynamic Interaction Modeling™ which once again leads the way in delivering a completely new level of ultra-realistic sound when modeling analog gear.
Our approach is simple enough in theory, but astoundingly complex to execute - we model (meaning digitally recreate) the behavior of EVERY component in the circuit all the way down to its quirkiest nuance and character. Then we model the interactions and influence that each component has within the system of the circuit and all of the variables that affect it.
In essence, our new Dynamic Interaction Modeling™ approach produces the EXACT behavior of the entire system in a non-linear and completely dynamic way.
What this means to you is pure authentic Fender amp tone as you'd expect it in the physical world - a sound and feel so true you won't believe your ears... or your fingers!
