50 New High-gain Tone Models

Free TONEX update adds more Premium Tone Models for MAX users

A new update for AmpliTube TONEX is now available, adding 50 new Premium Tone Models free for all TONEX MAX users and TONEX Pedal owners, and bringing the total up to 1,100 Tone Models included in TONEX MAX!

"High-gain Heroes" is a collection of 50 high-gain Tone Models of essential amps from our private vault, masterfully captured using IK's AI Machine Modeling. These include Tone Models based on the following:

  • Bogner Ecstasy
  • Fender EVH 5150III 50w
  • Marshall 6100 LM Anniversary
  • Marshall JCM 900
  • MESA/Boogie Dual Rectifier 2ch
  • MESA/Boogie Mark IV A
  • Mezzabarba Mzero
  • Mezzabarba Trinity
  • Orange Rockerverb MK I
  • Peavey 5150
  • PRS Archon 100
  • Randall Warhead WH300

The collection features 25 Premium Tone Models of the above amps with cab and 25 of the same exact gear without a cab, so you can use your favorite IR's or IK's VIR™ included with TONEX to swap in different cabs.

We used classic stomps for some of the captures to give you maximum variety, including a Boss GE-7, Fortin Grind, Friedman BE-OD, Horizon Devices Precision Drive, Ibanez Tube Screamer and Maxon OD808.
