IK Multimedia have announced the release of High-gain Heroes, a bundle of 50 new Premium Tone Models which is being offered for free to users of either TONEX MAX or the recently released TONEX Pedal, bringing the overall collection to a total of 1100 models.
The collection contains high-gain Tone Models of a range of amplifiers from IK Multimedia’s private vault, all of which have been expertly captured by the company using their AI Machine Modeling technology. 25 models of amplifiers paired with a cabinet are included, along with another 25 of the same amplifiers captured without a cabinet, allowing users to pair them with other cabinets either by using the company’s AmpliTube VIR, or by loading their own favourite impulse responses.
A range of classic effects pedals were also used during some of the captures, including a Boss GE-7, Friedman BE-OD, Ibanez Tube Screamer, Horizon Devices Precision Drive, Fortin Grind and a Maxon OD808.
The following amplifiers are featured in the collection:
- Bogner Ecstasy
- Fender EVH 5150III 50w
- Marshall 6100 LM Anniversary
- Marshall JCM 900
- MESA/Boogie Dual Rectifier 2-channel
- MESA/Boogie Mark IV A
