IK Multimedia has joined forces with guitar amp giant Mesa/Boogie to create the AmpliTube Mesa/Boogie 2 collection.

Created using IK's meticulous Volumetric Impulse Response technology, AmpliTube Mesa/Boogie 2 brings a total of four new amps and five new cabs – all approved by the Mesa/Boogie team – to IK Multimedia's AmpliTube 5 software.

The four amps comprise of three models currently featured in the Mesa/Boogie lineup – the California Tweed, Triple Crown TC-100 head and Mark Five – and a beloved model from the company's past, the Mark IIC+.

The single-channel California Tweed boasts Mesa's Incremental multi-watt power amp with Duo-Class and Dyna-Watt technologies, which feature five power settings, two operating classes, and a trio of wiring configurations. The Triple Crown TC-100 head, meanwhile, boasts a multi-soak attenuator with five power options and a trio of channels, each with its own voicing switch.

The Mark V features three channels – with three modes in each channel – while the Mark IIC+ packs a sensitive lead channel with a dual cascading drive stage and a Deep Bass booster.
