IK Multimedia Releases StealthPlug CS and StealthPedal CS Audio Interfaces For Guitarists and Bassists

View Single Page

The “what if” minds at IK Multimedia have released two new audio interfaces created specifically with guitarists and bassists in mind – the StealthPlug CS and the StealthPedal CS.

The StealthPlug is basically an audio interface-in-a-cable while the StealthPedal looks like a wah pedal – but don’t let that fool you! It’s actually a fully functioning interface with assignable parameters through the AmpliTube Custom Shop (CS) software. Both interfaces ship with IK’s own AmpliTube Custom Shop where you can spend the included “credits” to purchase and use digital replicas of some of greatest tone shapers available and get a personalized tone for live or studio purposes.

See wah the StealthPedal CS can do for you!

The interfaces are available now with the StealthPlug CS for $99.99 MSRP and the StealthPedal CS for $229.99 MSRP. Both interfaces are compatible with Mac and PC with the included software available in RTAS, VST and Audio Unit format – or usable for standalone application.  Lets dive into more details from IK Multimedia themselves:

“Both Interfaces

Meet your new Tone Shaper.

Both come with AmpliTube Custom Shop, the leading amp and software modeling package with 24 pieces of gear including: a digital chromatic tuner, 9 stomps, 4 amps, 5 cabs, 3 mics, and 2 rack effects. Basically it’s your entire guitar or bass signal chain, but in convenient compact “computer” form you can use in your studio or on stage.

Show me the money gear…

Plus you’ll also get 50 AmpliTube Custom Shop Gear Credits with the StealthPlug CS and 100 AmpliTube Custom Shop Gear Credits for with the StealthPedal CS that allow you to expand and customize your virtual rig one piece at a time. The Custom Shop has over 230 pieces of individual gear, including exclusive official models from legendary brands like Fender, Ampeg, Orange, Soldano, T-Rex, Seymour Duncan, Groove Tubes and many more.

Once you’ve dialed in your tone, lay down your ideas with the built-in 4-track recorder. You can layer your ideas with its non-destructive recording feature and “re-amp” your sound to get everything exactly perfectly perfect.

AmpliTube Custom Shop also works as a plug-in for the most popular DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) sequencers such as GarageBand, Pro Tools, Cubase, Sonar, Logic, Live, Reaper, FruityLoops, etc. with the exact same functionality, (except you don’t get the handy recorder when you’re already using it in a recorder… duh.)


StealthPlug CS

The Nuts and Volts – 9 Feet of “cablecular bliss”.

With the StealthPlug, you get 9 full feet of room to stretch out, stand up, jump jive and wail. Simply plug the 1/4” end into your instrument and the USB end into your computer. (It doesn’t work the other way… we tried.) There’s a 1/8” mini-plug jack for your headphones (neighbor-friendly) or powered speakers (non-neighbor friendly) so you can hear what you’re doing. There’s a dual-button volume control in case the police show, and a couple of pretty colored lights you can use to land small aircraft.

Then…within seconds, be prepared to enter a world of pure tonal hysteria and mayhem featuring the included new AmpliTube Custom Shop.


StealthPedal CS

Look Wah — No Hands!

StealthPedal is also a controller. Don’t let that scare you, it’s actually a great thing. It means that once you get hooked up, you can also assign software parameters to it’s knobs, switches and pedal attenuator. And with our software, if you know how to right-click a mouse button, you know how to assign a function to a button. It’s so easy even a “pizza delivery person” could do it. Really — that easy. So, now you don’t have to “wah” with your mouse. You can do it the way you’ve always known how to… with your feet.

In In Out Out — Getting Connected.

You get two ins — and two outs. This way you can connect a couple of instruments, or a stereo source, and run the outs in stereo or dual mono. This allows you to take advantage of the stereo effects of the software if you have it set up that way. The functionality of the StealthPedal is expandable — you can also add an additional expression pedal via the “expression pedal” ¼” jack, and you can add a dual-button footswitch. Why? Because we all like options, and this gives you the ability to assign more software parameters to buttons and pedals you operate with your feet so you can focus on the things that matter… like playing the money riffs.”
