IK Multimedia has released a teaser video entitled “The finest tones ever finally break free”. It features an X, but little else. At this stage, we can only speculate what it will be.

IK Multimedia’s big Summer NAMM announcement looks like it could be a new piece of modeling hardware aimed specifically at guitar players. However, apart from the big ‘X’, the teaser video doesn’t exactly give much away.

“The finest tones ever finally break free”

The above statement is certainly a bold one and that big X sort of hints that it could be something special. Potentially a new guitar amplifier? Or perhaps even a floor-based modelling unit, which I would guess would be equipped with their in-house AmpliTube software.

I’d be more than happy to have some of those Amplitube tones contained within a hardware unit, as I have been using the Amplitube software forever and know my way around it fairly well. Therefore, a hardware solution would be great for me, and I suspect, for many other guitar players too.

15 July 2021

The release date of 15 July 2021 obviously coincides with Summer NAMM, so we don’t exactly have very long to wait to find out what X is all about. IK Multimedia will be at booth 821 this Summer NAMM 2021 in Nashville, so you can check it out in person or online, during the show.

    My guess: another giant installer package you can’t opt out of.

    Ugo says:

    I think the title tells it all: “The finest tones ever finally break free” which means the finest Amplitube tones break free from a computer – It’s a hardware guitar modeller.

    Don says:

    Is it not version 10?
    I read on another site that “break free” refers to Brian May tones.

    It’s a version of all their plugins properly filtered to prevent aliasing. Finally.
