IK Multimedia Leslie Collection
Leslie Amps and Cabs for AmpliTube and T-RackS
The official Leslie collection for AmpliTube and T-RackS.
Includes AmpliTube Leslie and T-RackS Leslie.
The Leslie Collection is the result of the exclusive collaboration between the IK Multimedia team and Hammond USA and Suzuki Music Corp. of Japan with the aim of perfectly recreating, for the first time ever, the truly authentic sound of the legendary Leslie amps and cabinets in the digital world. Be prepared to be blown away by what these rotary speaker emulations can do for your guitar tone, or anything else.
AmpliTube Leslie has a distinct advantage over its competitors with its circuit-modeled amplifiers, which are critical to recreating the signature tone of these incredible units, especially when overdriving the amp circuit, typical of genres like rock and blues.
Leslie cabinets are very complex to reproduce in the digital realm because of the number of time-variant effects that happen within the sound simultaneously during the rotation of the rotors. These include the Doppler effect plus continuously and smoothly variable delay, frequency and phase response as well as variable reverberation/reflections inside the cabinet walls, and that is just scratching the surface.
These complex machines have been recreated using Volumetric Response Modeling, a breakthrough proprietary technology from IK, that includes modeling of some parts and capturing the real audio behavior by miking up the cabinets in a high-quality room to extract the essence of their original tone. You can think of these digital Leslie models as providing actual audio recordings of the real cabinets, they are much more than an emulation algorithm!
The singing tone of these legendary cabinets is finally captured and at your fingertips. Plus, all horns and drums are recorded in stereo, making it possible to mix the four mics the way you prefer to fit all possible production needs. All controls are divided into three pages: Setup, Channels, and EQ, while the speed controller is always visible for quick access.
T-RackS Leslie is ideal on all sources and not just organs and keyboards. It makes for a very powerful creative tool on applications that range from playing, mixing to sound design! Try it on guitars, on synths, on lead vocals, background vocals, drums, percussions, and much more, even as a parallel processor inside the T-RackS channel strip for effects never heard before.
The amps were recreated thanks to IK’s innovative Dynamic Interaction Modeling Technology, which can analyze and model the behavior of every electronic component in the circuit, as well as their mutual interactions, thus reproducing the exact behavior of the entire system in a non-linear and dynamic way.
The cabinets, on the other hand, have been recreated using Volumetric Response Modeling, our breakthrough proprietary technology, that includes modeling of some parts and capturing the real audio behavior of each model by miking up the cabinets in a high-quality room to extract the essence of their original tone. Only this approach can offer digital Leslie models that are indistinguishable from the originals when placed in the same room and miked the same way. This happens because cabinets are very complex to reproduce in the digital realm due to the number of time-variant effects that happen within the sound simultaneously, during the rotation of the rotors.
