StealthPlug CS from IK Multimedia is a compact USB interface designed especially for the electric guitarist or bassist. Utilizing a 9 foot cable form-factor, the interface simply plugs into the instrument at one end and into a computer USB port on the other. A stereo mini connector provides output for using headphones, an external amplifier or powered stereo speakers.
The interface ships with AmpliTube Custom Shop, a software modeling bundle with twenty-four pieces of gear. These include a digital chromatic tuner, 9 stomp pedal emulations, 4 amplifier and 5 cabinet models, 3 microphones, and 2 rack effects. Basically an entire guitar or bass signal chain in a convenient "computer" form for use in the studio or on stage.
The AmpliTube Custom Shop provides access to an online Custom Store that allows the user to purchase additional effects and software, along with free downloads. To get started, StealthPlug CS provides 50 AmpliTube Custom Shop Gear Credits for purchasing any of the over 230 pieces of virtual gear. Available products include exclusive official models from brands like Fender, Ampeg, Orange, Soldano, T-Rex, Seymour Duncan, Groove Tubes, and many more.
The software also includes a built-in 4-track recorder. Or it can function as a plug-in for most popular Digital Audio Workstations such as GarageBand, Pro Tools, Cubase, Sonar, Logic, Live, Reaper, FruityLoops, etc. Portable and easy to use (with the addition of a laptop or a desktop computer), StealthPlug CS is the perfect solution for recording, practicing and playing a guitar or bass, anytime, anywhere.
