Finding Great Tone Just Got Easier

Intuitive Sidebar Navigation

TONEX 1.5 adds a comprehensive sidebar section with intuitive filters and folders, for quickly searching and organizing Tone Models and presets. Between the “Tone Model” and “Preset” modes, the new sidebar streamlines the workflow by keeping all essential search functions accessible in one easy-to-navigate area.

Customizable User Folders

Organizing Tone Models and presets is easier in TONEX 1.5 with the addition of custom user folders. Users can organize and create as many folders as they like, and manage Tone Models or presets by simply dragging and dropping them into place. Custom folders for amp type, pedals, songs or sets are just some of the ways users can now quickly organize Tone Models to suit their needs and workflow.

Enhanced View Options

A new Card view offers a second way to display Tone Models and presets. Whether users want to see more Tone Models at once with the Card view or prefer to see more details via the List view, both options offer direct access to essential actions via new mouseover macros. TONEX 1.5 also lets users expand the relative size of the List or Card views within the application, and rescale the entire graphic interface to optimize the window’s use of space.

Refined Amp and Cab Section

The Amp and Cab section now offers drag-and-drop functionality for quickly trying out different Tone Models, which can be moved directly into the Amp or Cab cells to replace what’s there and try out new sounds. Optional “locks” keep either the amp or cab fixed so users may explore other tone possibilities, comparing how an amp sounds with different cabs or vice versa. TONEX 1.5 also adds bulk import for IRs and a new window to quickly integrate and manage all user and 3rd-party impulse responses within TONEX.

Deeper ToneNET Integration

TONEX 1.5 adds a dedicated section for Tone Partner and Signature Collections. These Premium collections can be easily accessed in the redesigned “Collection” section of TONEX with the ability to use the newly introduced filtering options of the sidebar. Users can sort collections by version, signature, or by a specific Tone Partner, with Quick filters to further refine the search. Play audio samples, try demos and make purchases, all within the “Collection” view.

New Filters for TONEX Pedal

Prepping for gigs is quicker now too thanks to the updated “Library” section that takes full advantage of the new filtering options to sort and organize Tone Models for transfer to TONEX Pedal. Users can apply any of the new filters or select from their user folders to move Tone Models directly to the pedal for their next show.

Bonus Premium Tone Models

To reward all, TONEX 1.5 also includes 15 new Premium Tone Models for paid versions of TONEX (SE, Full and MAX) featuring a wide selection of clean and high-gain tones, perfect for studio and stage. These Tone Models are based on sought-after amps from IK’s vault such as a Bogner Shiva, Hiwatt DR103, Orange OR120, ENGL Powerball and more.

Pricing and Availability

TONEX 1.5 is a free update available via the IK Product Manager for all new and existing users of TONEX including the free version, TONEX CS. Owners of any paid version of TONEX (SE, Full, MAX) will also receive 15 new Premium Tone Models in a variety of styles by clicking “Restore Purchases” within the updated app.
