As in previous years they were an enormous success, with the Orange booth once again proving to be a major attraction. Images from our booth can be found on our Facebook Page, so if you struck a pose, check it out and see if you can find yourself.

AmpliTube Orange also features perfectly matched Orange speaker cabinets as well — the 4×12” PPC, 1×12” PPC, 2×12” PPC, 2×12” AD30 and the 1×15” OBC. The cabinets are individually selectable, so they can be mixed and matched with other amp heads for different sound possibilities.

Stompbox Effects Mania
Even though Orange doesn’t make stompbox effects, IK Multimedia has created 4 vintage styled Orange-inspired effects to make AmpliTube Orange a versatile stage and studio suite. Players will find four staple effects: a “Noise Filter” for keeping the hiss down when the gain is cranked; the “Highway Drive” vintage inspired overdrive pedal with crunch, level and tone controls, the “Echo Trip” delay pedal with feedback, delay time, level and tone controls, and “The Shaker” tremolo pedal with rate, depth and inspirational “shape” control.

Recording Studio
After dialing in their favorite tones, players can start recording thanks to AmpliTube Orange’s built-in recorder. The recorder section can be expanded via in-app purchase (4 tracks on iPhone/iPod touch, 8 tracks on iPad) for multi-track recording and composition. The full recorder features a bounce function that frees up tracks for limitless recording, and a master effects section with global reverb, eq and compression. Players can record complete compositions without leaving AmpliTube Orange.

AmpliTube Orange is also Inter-App Audio and Audiobus compatible, so it can be used as an input or effect in other compatible audio apps like GarageBand, making it perfect for injecting Orange tone into other audio environments.

Practice Buddy
AmpliTube Orange is also the perfect practice tool, thanks to its built-in “Song” section. The Song section allows a user to import any audio from their device iTunes library and play along. It features a “no voice” button that cancels the center portion of the stereo field (where most vocals and leads are placed) making soloing over existing recordings a breeze. There’s also a speed control that allows users to slow down (or speed up) audio material without changing pitch, allowing players to learn difficult passages or enhance their speed and precision.

Standalone or AmpliTube in-app
AmpliTube Orange is available as a standalone app from the App StoreSM, an “in-app” purchase bundle within AmpliTube, or individual amps and effects can be purchased a-la-carte as in-app purchases within AmpliTube. This gives players the flexibility to choose the bundle or individual models as their needs change.

Plugging In and Control
With IK Multimedia’s range of interfaces and controllers for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac/PC, getting a guitar signal to AmpliTube Orange is as simple as plugging into an amplifier. iRig HD and iRig PRO are the newest digital interfaces that allow players to plug into an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and a Mac or PC and deliver pristine quality pure guitar signal. iRig BlueBoard is the advanced Bluetooth® pedalboard that allows for control of presets and sound parameters in AmpliTube, wirelessly, from the floor, without laying your axe down.

Pricing & Availability
AmpliTube Orange is available now on the App StoreSM in two versions: AmpliTube Orange for iPhone/iPod touch and AmpliTube Orange for iPad for $14.99/€13.99 each. The 4–Track recorder and 8-Track recorder with master effects section on iPhone and iPad cost $9.99/€8.99 and $14.99/€13.99 respectively as an in-app purchase.

Orange to Release Limited Edition White Amps Tue, 25 Feb 2014 15:52:23 +0000 Orange Amplification are launching a limited edition white finish of their Rockerverb guitar amp heads and combos, Thunderverb 200 and 50 heads and legendary PPC412 and the more compact PPC212 Speaker Enclosures.

For a limited time only, these sought after heads and speaker enclosures will be available finished, as never before, in a prestigious white Levant covering trimmed with traditional gold piping and gold capped handles. These elegant amplifiers and cabinets are the ultimate in luxury!

The Orange Rockerverb series, long regarded as a British guitar amp masterpiece, are highly versatile roadworthy amps covering a wide range of tones. MusicRadar readers voted the Rockerverb 50 Combo one of the best valve combo guitar amps in the world in 2013.

Orange’s Thunderverb series amps have long been revered as one of the best sounding amps and were recently described by Guitar World to have ‘jaw dropping British tones, superb versatility and exceptional quality’. The smaller Thunderverb 50, stated MusicRadar, is ‘highly versatile and powerful head from one of the UK’s great amp builders.’

The matching white PPC412 and compact lighter PPC212 speaker enclosures
are built to the same high standards and deliver the distinct warm midrange tones synonymous with Orange.

The white limited editions ranges will be at the Frankfurt Musikmesse exhibition on the Orange Music Booth (F60, Hall 4.0) and are available for general distribution from April 2014.

Get Loud with Orange at SXSW 2014 to Support Music Education in U.S. Public Schools Thu, 20 Feb 2014 16:37:11 +0000 #OrangeGives Campaign to Benefit National Nonprofit Little Kids Rock

(Atlanta – February 19, 2014) Orange Amplification will get loud at SXSW 2014 to support music education in schools amidst budget cuts nationwide that are eliminating programs in low-income communities. The renowned amplifier manufacturer – known for its unique tones and distinctive design – is encouraging music fans at SXSW and around the world to join them in bringing free music education and instruments to children in under-served public schools across the U.S.

In addition to giving SXSW-goers the opportunity to demo Orange gear at the Orange-sponsored Under the Radar day parties March 12-14 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. at Flamingo Cantina, 515 E. 6th Street, Austin, Orange will donate $1 to Little Kids Rock every time someone posts to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #OrangeGives (limited to one entry per person/social media identity). You don’t need to be at SXSW to participate, but bonus points if you post a photo or video of a band getting loud with Orange gear along with the hashtag #OrangeGives.

The #OrangeGives campaign benefitting Little Kids Rock will kick off Wednesday, March 12 at 11am CST and ends Sunday, March 16 at 11:59pm CST.

What’s more, everyone who includes the #OrangeGives hashtag along with a photo or video showing Orange gear – whether on stage at SXSW, in their home studio or with bands rocking out at a local club – will be entered into a drawing to win a premium Orange OR15 Amp Head.

“The future of music is Little Kids Rock,” says Alex Auxier, Artist Relations Manager for Orange Amplifiers. “Across the country music programs are losing financial support. Every lost dollar could mean another child never learns to play an instrument – a skill that can be vital to their well being. Orange Amps supports Little Kids Rock because we believe it is our obligation. Tag #OrangeGives and let’s create another generation of talented musicians together!”

“Little Kids Rock is thrilled to be partnering with Orange Amplifiers,” says Little Kids Rock Founder and Executive Director, David Wish. “Their support will help us turn up the volume in public schools across the country by bringing our free, rockin’ music education program into their kids’ lives!”

The Orange-sponsored Under the Radar day parties at Flamingo Cantina March 12-14 are free and open to the public—no RSVPs or badges required. Orange will donate $1 to Little Kids Rock for each #OrangeGives hashtag during the duration of the campaign, up to $2,000.

Little Kids Rock is a renowned nonprofit that transforms children’s lives by restoring and revitalizing music education in disadvantaged public schools. Supporters include James Hetfield, Steven Van Zandt, Elvis Costello, Josh Groban, Carlos Santana, Bonnie Raitt and other renowned musicians.

The #OrangeGives campaign was created by M4G (Music for Good) Media, which connects top-notch brands, artists and non-profits to create mutually beneficial campaigns and events.
