  • Built-in assistant guides you through each step from hardware connection to complete modeling
  • Assign custom skins to your modeled gear and open them as a plug-in or standalone inside the TONEX software and app, or AmpliTube 5 for Mac/PC

Modeler

Harness the power of IK’s advanced AI Machine Modeling technology to turn your rig into virtual models of amps, cabs and pedals (distortion, overdrive, fuzz, EQ and boost) or entire rigs, in any combination.

TONEX uses a specially prepared audio file of actual guitar and bass signals, not just test tones, to capture your rig in true-to-life detail. Then TONEX’s neural network computes the machine modeled tone in minutes. The result is a virtual model that sounds indistinguishable from the real rig, to be used in TONEX software and app.

Add your custom skin and keywords to your Tone Models, then upload and share them with other TONEX users in ToneNET with just one click.
