AmpliTube Acoustic App Description

THE NO#1 TONE STUDIO HAS GONE ACOUSTIC! CONNECT YOUR GUITAR, UKULELE OR OTHER INSTRUMENT TO YOUR PHONE WITH iRIG ACOUSTIC AND PROCESS WITH AMPLIFIERS AND STOMPS SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR ACOUSTIC INSTRUMENTS! INTRODUCING AMPLITUBE ACOUSTIC: THE FIRST COMPLETE MOBILE ACOUSTIC TONE STUDIO THE NO#1 TONE STUDIO HAS GONE ACOUSTIC! CONNECT YOUR GUITAR, UKULELE OR OTHER INSTRUMENT TO YOUR PHONE WITH iRIG ACOUSTIC AND PROCESS WITH 3 AMPLIFIERS AND 6 STOMPS SPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR ACOUSTIC INSTRUMENTS! AmpliTube Acoustic is a complete mobile tone studio for acoustic instrument recording and processing. Powered by AmpliTube technology, it lets you practice, play and record with a collection of acoustic-centric virtual gear that offers world-class tone and sonic sculpting flexibility anytime and everywhere. Build your own custom rig with up to 6 stompbox FX and 3 amps. You can even drag and drop your stomps to sit before or after your amplifier (4 slots pre and 2 slots post). Designed for use with IK's iRig Acoustic mobile acoustic instrument interface, it provides plug-and-play sound thanks to its built-in calibration system that sculpts iRig Acoustic's EQ response to suit your particular acoustic guitar. With the two combined, you can get studio-grade condenser microphone sound from an interface that slips easily into your pocket. AmpliTube Acoustic gives you 6 creative stompbox effects and 3 amazing amps that are all tailored for acoustic instruments. Turn your acoustic into a jangling 12 string with the "12 String" simulator, add some low-end with the "Bass Maker" or even change your guitar's body from big to small (or vice versa) with the "Body Modeler." Feed your signal through solid state or tube amps and graphic EQs to get just the sound you want. Use the "Feed Kill," a special stomp, to have the app eliminate feedback for you through smart frequency filtering. You'll be absolutely floored by the sound quality. AmpliTube Acoustic uses the same tone technology as the acclaimed AmpliTube 4 Custom Shop for OS X and PC. You'll hear the difference and understand why AmpliTube is an essential for so many professional musicians and recording studios. Like to loop? Now you can get creative with loops in AmpliTube via its new Super Looper, which is available through in-app purchase. It makes it easy to record, play back, adjust levels and play along with up to 4 loops. Looper is controllable via MIDI or iRig BlueBoard. Looper feature is available for in-app purchase. Need a drummer? Use the built-in Loop Drummer system to jam to killer drum tracks. Make your own rhythmic patterns or let it create some inspiring drums for you. Get more loops via in-app Style Packs. Use AmpliTube’s streamlined built-in 8-track recorder and DAW-style studio (available via in-app purchase) sections to record, edit and tweak and share your compositions via SoundCloud, FTP, file sharing or email. Now you can use the power of AmpliTube with your favorite acoustic instruments.

  • Crashes and disables iRig pickup

    Despite the fact that tons of people are complaining about the same issues for many months (about a year!!) , IK Multimedia has not fixed the bug problems. So, my suggestion is, until they fix it, don't buy it. Update: almost 2 years later! :As you can see, from the developer’s response, they don’t take ownership of the issue by advising that the user is reporting a rare case... or, as they have told me directly “you are the only one complaining about this issue.” They never take ownership and never updates as promised. Last comment comment added to this review: As of this review date, it's been almost 2 years since they offered an update to this app and since I, personally, provided a truck load of data to prove the app is buggy. The customer service responds but always with the same, cut and paste replies and never once acknowledges that the problem could be due to their app. They never take ownership of the problem. Support conversations just die and they make you feel like you're bothering them if you check in and bring it to their attention that no resolution has been offered. Also; Bringing up their pale service on their forum site for discussion is a big no-no as well because they will LOCK the conversation so you can't post your service experience on a forum level. I found this to be the nastiest example of neglect and denial on the part of IK That being said, some of the app works but the bugs get in the way. Example: don't buy the multitrack pack. Just don't do it. The looper: go beyond four measure and it hiccups and skips a beat. Stinks. What’s the point? Arm a second track... it crashes. (Update: I've been able to determine it's the TUBE amp that crashes the multi tracker, they have admitted they KNOW this, but IK has not stepped up to the Plate and fixed it with an an app update.) They are really good at contacting users about keeping this experience "off the forums" or review page (like this one) and urge you to contact "your service contact" but despite several dozen contacts, they fail to admit the problems or fix the bugs. There's more than one bug. Here's another Example: plug in the iRig pickup... you may not hear anything! Why? No idea. If you tell IK this or provide several examples they always say "this is the first time we've heard of this. You're the only one who has mentioned it." I found unplugging it and plugging it back in might work. But why would I have to do that? Also, launching the app doesn't allow for monitoring the guitar (kind of the whole point of the app, right?) but it will often work if I minimize the app and bring it back up to the screen. Then, suddenly, monitoring of live guitar might work. Bottom line; It just crashes too often (on several different iOS devices... not just one; all of them!) and the customer a service appears to have no ability to take ownership of any reported issue or resolve the issues that are proven to be APP related. Again; Don't buy it unless they fix it. (And don't post any negative experience on their forum or the men in black will shut you down!)
  • AmpliTube acoustic DAW

    Although the DAW looks identical to the paid version on AmpliTube, for some stupid and undefined reason, AmpliTube Acoustic does not support simultaneous multi track recording us iRig Pro duo. AmpliTube Acoustic only supports single track recording, very inexcusable. On a separate issue, IK Multimedia is way behind the times on file management. With the recent release of ITunes 12.7, managing recorded music is now a huge problem. I could but do not use SoundCloud as it does not suit me. I could email myself but this is a clumsy process. I have tried to get ITunes 12.6.3 working (not very well). The latest release of GarageBand supports the IOS 11 file management process and this seems reasonable. By the way, I am an acoustic guitar player and the amps and stomps etc is very impressive, my acoustic recording of voice and guitar are all that I really need. I have never had any issues with any IK Multimedia products as they have always worked as advertised. Thank you.

    Concurrently I procured the paid version of iRig Amplitube Acoustic & JamUp Pro with Bias. I also examined each 8-track recorder. I had two iRig Acoustic pickups for my pupless axes (particularly world instruments), one for ios & one included in my Stage rig. For five months I ascertained through playing & recording which I preferred, them bought a second ios pickup. I contrived a simple converter cable to conform the headphone output to a guitar amp input (a major forum topic). In addition, I procured the iRig2 for pup-equipped instruments. My iRig priority is not set in stone, & I can easily meander through all systems to create my sick style of music. After months of fine tuning, I surmised that iRig ios is conducive to my current intentions, & bought the in-app 8-track recorder. I won't itemize the attributes which lead me to an iRig ios preference (sidetracking Stage), & shall spare details about the iRig multitrack recorder ($4x more than JamUp's). Nevertheless, the app's acoustic emphasis, presets, & functionality of the recorder (eg timeline & wav files), at the moment seem to put me in a creative Aura anywhere, anytime, & can tweak the tunes in Reason when I return to Earth.
  • App crashes constantly

    I purchased the DAW to do some multi track recordings, however as soon as I arm a second track for recording the app crashes. This happens every single time, and makes it useless for my purposes. I contacted IK Multimedia support. Let's see what they say. Will update my review if the problem is solved.

    Overall, a great app that has been implemented with an interface that is consistent with other IK/IRIG iOS apps. I purchased the "Acoustic" app specifically to get the 12 String Guitar FX and although not perfect, it provides a decent sounding 12 String capability. My observation is that the 12 String is "slightly weak" on the rich harmonics of a real 12 String, but it's unmistakably a 12 String that is overall very satisfying. I would expect later versions to improve on the overall richness of the sound quality, but well worth the price as-is. Thanks,
  • Great app and high hopes

    The app is great and the effects are exactly what I've been looking for. However I purchased the recording workstation add on and 1 track works great. It crashes every time I try to add an additional track. I have high hopes this is fixed soon.
  • Great!

    I give 4 stars because i can't use my previous purchases in the new version but i think that all this new stuff is calibrated for acoustics so it have to be differents algorithms..For $9.99 you got all stompboxes and amps so it's no that bad!! Amps sound great. Definitely improves the sound of my acoustic guitar better than the regular Amplitube version.

    Downloaded lots of electric guitar tone apps for my acoustic guitar. Never was what I wanted. Amplitude acoustic is fantastic. Tones are great for any acoustic guitar. Definitely worth 10 bucks.
  • Great app but needs urgent update

    By ManuRemy
    Once again IK Multimedia puts out a great app. They are innovative in their accessories and create to make recording and mixing simple. I use my acoustic with another pickup for now and iRig HD and it works well. There are some great sound capabilities. My only disappointment is that the app came out with some bugs. Every time I try to record another track it crashes. This happened with both the free and paid app and on both iPad and iPhone running the latest IOS 9.1. I am hopeful that soon there will be an update to fix this issue and give us the opportunity to record some good tracks. It will be an awesome app. For now I can only give it three stars.

    I tried to use this but it crashed so much trying to put a track together that I gave up and requested a refund.
