  2. From Brian’s treble booster to his three-amp live setup and carefully curated effects selection, guitarists can enjoy new amp, cab and stompbox models in a convenient package, along with presets covering his celebrated discography. Each model was created with the supervision of Brian May and his long-time technical team, to carefully replicate his rig. A key element of Brian’s distinct sound comes from his Red Special guitar that, famously, he hand built with his father in the 1960s from spare parts and household materials. Because the guitar is such an integral part of his rig, IK’s engineers went the extra mile to even create a new stompbox effect that helps simulate the Red Special’s tone and controls. This offers guitarists a more authentic musical experience that pays homage to this living legend. What’s included in AmpliTube Brian May Available in convenient desktop app and plug-in for any DAW, AmpliTube Brian May offers up to 11 new models including 2 amps, 3 cabinets, and up to 6 stompbox effects. Included are unique offerings such as a new pedal modeling Brian’s Red Special guitar and a model of the one-of-a-kind, home-built “Deacy” Amp (with user adjustable battery power!) originally created by Queen bassist John Deacon, after modifying an old radio. Other highlights incorporate his famous triple-amp live setup; tone-shaping effects; and even a harmonizer for nailing those Queen stacked leads in a single take. Amplifiers Based on the classic triple VOX® AC30™ setup, the BM 30 offers three amps with the effects chain in a Wet-Dry-Wet configuration to match Brian May’s iconic setup. The BM DK is a model of the small “Deacy” amp that became the trademark sound of many Queen songs. Cabinets The 2x12 BM 30 Blue (named the 2x12 BM1 in the Brian May collection for iOS) is a triple cabinet based on the cab section of a VOX AC30 equipped with with Celestion™ Alnico Blue speakers. The 2x12 BM 30 H70 (2x12 BM2 in the Brian May collection for iOS) is with Celestion G12H Anniversary speakers. In addition, the 1x6 BM DK provides the cabinet section of the BM DK amp, featuring a 6” speaker. Stompboxes The Red Special, created from a detailed study of Brian May’s famous guitar, helps add the unique tonality and controls of the Red Special itself. Based on the original KAT® Treble Booster, the Treble Booster enriches guitar tone similar to Brian May’s by boosting it before it reaches the amp. May Wah was based on a rackmount Dunlop® Cry Baby® wah, modeled in the exact configurations Brian May uses to shape his tone, while the FOX Phaser was based on the unique and distinctive sound of the fOXX® Foot Phaser. Star Gate is a noise gate that helps clean up the signal chain, minimizing the noise feeding Brian’s unique amp and pedal setup. The iPhone and iPad version, the Brian May Collection (which is inside the existing AmpliTube app) also adds the 30 – a 30-band Graphic EQ, with +/- 15 dB boost per band and a+/- 15dB Level control, to help craft a more exact match of Brian’s tones. This pedal is already included for free in AmpliTube Custom Shop for Mac/PC. Discography presets A full set of painstakingly created song-based discography presets were compiled by Jamie Humphries, guitarist for the official Queen stage production “We Will Rock You,” who has also performed with Queen and Brian May. These presets allow users to dial up their favorite Brian May tones instantly and were constructed under Brian’s personal supervision. Options, pricing and availability AmpliTube Brian May (for Mac/PC) runs inside AmpliTube Custom Shop, a free download available to all. The new models are available now for purchase as a bundle from the Custom Shop, the IK Multimedia online store and from IK authorized dealers worldwide for $/€99.99 (excl. taxes). No previous purchase of AmpliTube is required. The new models will show up as an optional purchase for existing users of AmpliTube 4 upon updating to the latest version. The Brian May Collection (iPhone and iPad) is available via in-app purchase from within AmpliTube CS for iPhone or iPad, for $19.99. Individual models may also be purchased a la carte (Stomp FX - $3.99 each; amps - $6.99 each). All models are also part of IK’s All-In Bundle 2019 collection, which is available for in-app purchase.

    Oh I just noticed that! Sorry. We don't currently have an option to buy 55 or just the 5. I can relay the requests to buy smaller amounts or "round up for purchase" and I'll also look to see if there's any other option.

    Thanks! I just mentioned Jamie Humphries who did the second longer video, he did such a great job with that video and all of the audio demos.

    Great! It really is incredible. I've been playing with it for a while, before the presets were available and it wasn't hard to recreate Brian's tone even without them - and you can get some non-Queen tones that are really great too. We worked directly with Brian on this project, but also worth noting the hard work and attention of Jamie Humphries who did the audio demos and worked on the presets as well. He has performed many a time with Brian as well as being the original main guitarist for the We Will Rock You musical. He's obviously an expert on Queen tone as well as Brian's style of playing. Of course, but alas we cannot give away brand new products for free

    That's true and you actually reminded me that the remake/reboot actually exists. Most definitely meant the original The music was used quite well as you point out. Of course there was plenty of cheese in there too, I especially enjoyed Rainn Wilson's (Dwight from The Office US) brief appearance. I took my daughter to a panel at a local con once with Hollie Marie Combs and Shannen Doherty. Was fun.

    Great points all around. I have to say AMEN to the Quad Series comment specifically. And a deep and sincere thank you for that last comment.

    I really don't want to admit that I watched the show a bit more than I would have expected I would, but... Hey the theme was really good! And I hope the hint using that video was as obvious as our teaser.

    You'll see... I've pushed for Rockman emulations at least, and for a while. Let's see if I can't get some at least maybe into AT5 You won't for the Brian May presets included. We've made sure additional gear is available in AmpliTube CS (free version) for those that buy only the collection to cover this.

    I'll throw in a vote for the 80 as well. They're all great in their own right, and the two mentioned so are definitely awesome choices.
