Each app also includes additional content, such as exclusive photos and song lyrics.
There are two versions of the app to choose from – one version includes the hit single “You’re A Lie” along with lyrics and other extras [http://bit.ly/LhKOWY] and the second a full version that includes the full Apocalyptic Love album, photos, lyrics and other extras [http://bit.ly/LHrtkJ].

IK Multimedia is proud to release AmpliTube® Slash, the official Slash apps and software that let you play, practice and record with Slash’s signature pedals and amplifiers on the iPhone®, iPod touch®, iPad® and Mac®/PC.
All versions of AmpliTube Slash feature models of the signature gear used by Slash in the studio and for his live performances. Now users can rock with models of the legendary Marshall® amplifiers used by Slash together with his signature guitar pedals. Also included is a comprehensive collection of Slash’s guitar tone settings provided as starting points for tone tweaking or playing along.
Additionally AmpliTube Slash provides a fully integrated multi-track recording studio for capturing ideas quickly and easily or producing entire songs and compositions. A robust song player section gives users the ability to play along with songs or backing tracks by importing them directly from their device library or computer.
“My new album, Apocalyptic Love, was entirely written while we were on tour,” states Slash, adding, “If we are not performing we’re traveling, so there is little time for creating music. By using my iPhone along with IK’s AmpliTube and iRig I was able to capture whatever ideas I had swimming in my head, usually around 4am.”
“AmpliTube iRig comes in really handy for on-the-go practicing, recording, or just jamming on different ideas – even if it’s on the bus – it’s right with me all the time”, Slash adds, “I’ll do some tweaks on the Marshall’s, but there are also different effects that are available including distortion, chorus, auto wah and more.”
Superior Modeling – The Real Deal
IK worked closely with Slash to model his entire rig comprised of 2 must-have classic rock amplifiers – the Marshall JCM Slash Edition Silver Jubilee and the Marshall AFD100 – both equipped with Slash’s favorite 1960 Marshall speaker cabinet. Together with these sought-after amplifiers users will be able to choose from 6 stompbox effects that includes Slash’s signature Delay, Gate, Octave/Fuzz, Chorus, Booster and Wah/Distortion. The rig is fully configurable so that the signal chain can be freely customized depending upon the device used: 3 stompbox effects into an amp and cabinet on the iPhone/iPod touch; 4 stompbox effects and amp/cabinet/mic on the iPad, and up to 12 stompbox effect combinations into dual amp/cab/mic/room on the Mac/PC.
AmpliTube Slash is the latest addition to the family of official IK guitar and bass products that, thanks to IK’s unmatched modeling technologies, features products with the best names in guitar effects and amplification such as Fender™, Ampeg®, Orange®, Soldano™, Seymour Duncan™, T-Rex® as well as legendary artist Jimi Hendrix™.
Hook up with Slash
Users can plug their guitar into their iPhone, iPod touch or iPad using IK’s extremely popular iRig™ guitar interface adapter or the coming soon iRig STOMP pedal interface adapter. Users with Mac/PC can connect their guitar via USB port using IK’s StealthPedal™ digital audio interface pedal or StealthPlug™ cable interface that now also works with iPad using Apple Camera Connection Kit.

“I’m a strong believer that the best way to get your music heard is to get out there and play shows,” said SLASH. “There are tons of talented bands that simply don’t have the resources to go on tour, so I’m glad to be able to host them on my tour and at the same time introduce my fans to great, undiscovered artists”
SLASH has achieved his first-ever #1 hit at rock radio as “You’re A Lie” vaults to the #1 spot this week at Active Rock. The explosive song is the first track from SLASH’s second solo album APOCALYPTIC LOVE, which was released May 22 and entered the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart at #4, marking the top rock debut that week.
APOCALYPTIC LOVE also entered the Top 5 in seven countries outside the U.S.: Canada (#2), Australia (#2), New Zealand (#1), Germany (#5), France (#7), Japan (#2), Sweden (#4) and Switzerland (#3). All the songs on APOCALYPTIC LOVE (Dik Hayd Records, distributed through EMI Label Services) were written together by SLASH and Myles Kennedy.
