AmpKit adds Retina DIsplay support, Trace Elliot amp system

Agile Partners has updated its AmpKit guitar effects and recording app for iOS adding Retina Display support for the new iPad along with an expanded array of gear available for purchase in the in-app Gear Store. With AmpKit 1.3, bass players can now purchase a full-featured bass amp and cabinet modeled after the Trace Elliot 1215 combo that includes features from the real Trace Elliot amps such as switchable valve (tube) drive and signature Pre Shape circuits. The AmpKit model also includes the Trace Elliot 12-band graphic equalizer tuned for bass frequencies, an optimized dual-band compressor and a convolution-based simulation of the 1x15 cabinet.

Additional new gear available in the latest version includes the Rocktron Metal Planet Distortion pedal for hardcore heavy metal distortion with mid-frequency controls for adjusting between the classic scooped heavy metal sound or modern rock tone; and the Rocktron HUSH Noise Reduction circuit to wipe out hiss and pickup buzz, delivering 65dB of signal cleanup while maintaining the integrity of the music signal. AmpKit 1.3 also introduces extended support for digital guitar interfaces, updated headset input compensation for the third-generation iPad and iPhone 4S and the ability to save setups for all channels on multi-channel amps. AmpKit is available from the App Store in two versions: AmpKit (Free) includes the Peavey ValveKing amp with two cabinets, two pedals and two mics; AmpKit+ ($10) adds three additional amps and eight additional pedals. Additional gear such as the Trace Elliot 1215 is available via in-app purchase.
