As real as it gets. The best sounding Leslie models in digital form, period.
AmpliTube Leslie® 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.
Thanks to the powerful combination of IK’s breakthrough Dynamic Interaction Modeling™ and Volumetric Response Modeling™ technologies, which can reproduce the subtlest interactions of an electronic circuit down to its tiniest component and recreate the real acoustic behavior of rotary-speaker cabinets, the IK and Hammond teams succeeded where all the others had to inevitably compromise.
The outcome is not a mere emulation of reality, no matter how close to the original it might be, it is rather an exacting digital recreation of it, carrying the official Leslie® seal as a guarantee of the indisputable excellence of what is the definitive Leslie collection for the most discerning producers, composers, keyboardists, guitarists and creative singers.
AmpliTube Leslie brings you the authentic, certified sounds of 5 Leslie Amps and 6 Leslie rotary-speaker cabinets that you can use to record in your DAW or to play live, taking advantage of AmpliTube’s world-class 64-bit processing.

From microphone distance and position control, precise level balancing, different amp and cab combinations, circuit overdriving, width, acceleration and deceleration control of the rotary speaker, horn/drum balance and more, you have everything you need to give your tracks the unmistakable shimmer, charm, warmth, growl and character and attitude that are an integral part of the Leslie sound.

The amplifiers
The amplifiers
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.

IK’s innovative Dynamic Interaction Modeling Technology 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
The cabinets
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. 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. 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.

Leslie 122 Amp

Leslie 122 Cab

Leslie 122
The classic of classics.
Suitable for pop, rock, jazz and blues, when you think of the ‘Leslie sound,’ you are most likely thinking of a 122.
A vintage unit from the early 70s has been modeled here, and this has a slightly warmer sound when compared to the 122A.

Leslie 122A
The Leslie 122A is the modern take on the most famous Leslie model, with a balanced input to the amplifier and a medium-tall cabinet that provides superb bass response.
This has a slightly more open and upfront tone when compared to the classic 122.

Leslie 147 Amp

Leslie 147 Cab

Leslie 147
The Leslie 147 is another classic Leslie model with a different connector, slightly different power amp, an unbalanced input to the amplifier and slightly shorter cabinet. The overall sound is very similar to the classic 122 but with some noticeably and musically relevant differences. The one we modeled is a vintage unit from the mid 60s, with no reflectors on the horns, which gives another flavor to the sound and an even more tangible sonic difference from the classic 122.

Leslie 3300w
The Leslie 3300w is one of the most powerful models ever, featuring a 300-Watt RMS solid-state amplifier with a real vacuum tube preamp. Its sound signature is especially suitable for pop, rock, jazz and blues.

Here you have full mix control on the four microphone channels used when capturing the Leslie speakers. Each channel has its own level and pan control so that you can setup the Leslie mix as you prefer. You can for example set the drum using just one channel panned centered to have solid monophonic low frequencies, and use the horn in stereo, or you can get immediate 70s sonic flavor by using just one mic on the top and one on the bottom panned just a bit apart, just to mention another example.

Full parametric EQ

At the end of the chain we added a full parametric EQ to let you further shape the sound to fit your musical ideas even better.
