IK Multimedia X-GEAR AmpliTube X-DRIVE Distortion Pedal

Meet the IK Multimedia X-GEAR AmpliTube X-DRIVE Distortion Pedal – one out of the 4 pedals from IK Multimedia’s X-GEAR Series. A boutique pedal featuring 16 all-new overdrive and distortion effects leveraging IK’s latest AmpliTube technologies. What’s more, it is also accompanied by an exclusive virtual X-GEAR version of the exact same effects.

It’s Time To Break Free with X-DRIVE

Firstly, bring your perfect studio guitar sound onstage with the new AmpliTube X-DRIVE distortion pedal. Use the virtual version with AmpliTube 5 (SE version included) to record and tweak settings and save as presets on your X-DRIVE pedal for world-class tone anywhere.

Best-In-Show DSP

Secondly, AmpliTube X-DRIVE leverages IK’s latest technologies for hyper-realistic emulations of real-world gear. The state-of-the-art DSP onboard offers 16 high-end algorithms, while a special X-MODE opens additional signal boosting features. But that’s not all! Using 192kHz internal processing with 4x oversampling, X-DRIVE delivers amazing clarity to the stage with the realism and response that users love about AmpliTube 5.

Hardware That Stands Out

Thirdly, for AmpliTube X-DRIVE, IK Multimedia went all out to guarantee your tone stays as pure and pristine as possible, no matter how simple or sophisticated your signal chain becomes.

X-DRIVE’s Industry-Leading Integration

What’s more, AmpliTube X-DRIVE includes a matching virtual version for Mac/PC and a copy of AmpliTube 5 SE. Open any version of AmpliTube 5 and you’ll find your virtual X-DRIVE pedal available as a stomp for use within the program.

Additionally, adjust any of your pedal settings with the convenience of AmpliTube’s award-winning workflow and save them as presets. The X-GEAR Librarian lets you move presets between X-GEAR pedals and AmpliTube and easily reorganize them on the hardware pedal. You can store up to 300 presets per pedal.

All-In-One Recording

Furthermore, with AmpliTube X-DRIVE there’s no need for any other gear when it comes to recording guitar. It features a USB audio interface and some must-have recording features right onboard.

With Great Tone Comes Great Portability

Above all, with its open architecture for future updates, AmpliTube X-DRIVE will empower you no matter where you are and for years to come. As a result, experience the freedom of moving between the studio and stage seamlessly.
