“I dug deep into my collection’s presets as well as AmpliTube’s enormous selection of sonic options to create a series of musical vignettes, all tied together with a deep groove and a decided nod to a few of my well-known songs.”
“The signal chain looked like this: My Ibanez JS guitars, 5-string bass, acoustic guitar and mandolin into IK’s AXE I/O interface, then straight to my Pro Tools rig. Then I fired up the AmpliTube JS presets. No amps, no speaker cabinets, no microphones. It’s amazing how easy and flexible this setup is. AmpliTube gives you the tools to take each patch and manipulate it in so many ways, it’s really inspiring.”
Mark Menghi, IK Multimedia guitar brands manager and founding member of heavy metal supergroup Metal Allegiance, comments, “It’s been an honor to work, record, jam and write with so many amazing world-class musicians, but one of the very first artists to welcome me when I broke into the industry over 20 years was the incomparable Mr. Joseph Satriani, who has also appeared on a Metal Allegiance album. When Joe agreed to do the Joe Satriani AmpliTube collection, I knew it would be a lot of work for our team at IK, but would also be a rewarding and fulfilling product for guitarists around the world.“
AXE I/O is IK’s premium guitar interface with advanced tone-shaping features such as the proprietary Z-TONE® impedance-adapting circuit, and powerful guitar recording tools.
