"After a long stint at the top of the guitar VST game, the makers of AmpliTube dropped the much anticipated IK Multimedia TONEX Pedal to many plaudits. Combining some of the best amp models out there with a thriving community of user-made presets, TONEX is a powerful way to load and create your own IRs.
"You get TONEX MAX and AmpliTube 5 when you purchase the pedal, opening up literally thousands of tonal possibilities for your pedalboard. The onboard cab sounds are absolutely unreal, and there's loads of choice in terms of speaker configurations, mic placement, and room sounds."
