App Reviews

  • Just ok

    By Papa Vern
    This app is designed to get your hard earned cash. They invested in the best strategy to fleece you rather than giving you a great product at a reasonable price. Go with something else.
  • Not bad, but lacking.

    By Captain Custerdome
    I’ve used AmpliTube Mac for a long time as well as on iOS. With proper tweaking, it does a good job. My main gripe now is that the audio output does not recognize AirPods as an audio device, which could greatly enhance the usability of this app. Secondly, there are too many add-ons one must buy. There should be an all-inclusive bundle that isn’t overpriced, considering we are talking about simulation of real gear on a device that typically has an inferior audio path compared to a pro recording studio.
  • Crap

    By ChaiVat
    You have to buy anything that's halfway thanks!
  • IK Multimedia products are difficult to use

    By idiotecha
    I'm extremely frustrated with IK Multimedia. I bought the iRig HD 2 and it was not working. I found it that they were packaged with faulty wires. After going back to Guitar Center and picking up a working wire, I follow the instructions (which seem straight forward) only to find that the product isn't working. I can see the Blue Light is turned on when I plug in the lightning cable into my iPad Pro, but I get no sound. What's even more frustrating is that you can't find any tutorials or help online on the iRig HD 2. Save your money on the iRig and this app - use the money to buy some hardware.
  • Works great

    By maxblack113
    If you have an iRig, you get a considerable amount of gear for free. Beyond that, the IAPs are pretty reasonably priced. The app is super simple to use and has a pretty slick UI. Works like as expected every time. Great app!
  • Great effects. Great sound even without IAPs

    By M@rshmallo
    This has a great basis to start with in amps and stomp boxes.The noise gate is absolutely necessary though. Wish that weren't the case so you can add other pedals in that spot. Also pretty bummed that a 3.9 mm speaker doesn't work with this app.
  • Stinks

    By Ltguitar
    What a scam! You buy the Irig and download and you get nothing really, The basic app is free of any effects and everything is in app purchase. What's worse is that there is absolutely no soul and lacks the intuitive response a regular amp/effects would give you. I am a lifetime guitar player and this made me like I was 14 again and just bought a crappy amp.
  • Working like a charm.

    By transcendentalaccidentalism
    I added the 5th star from 4 after getting back into tracking. I need to get used to the varying degrees of gain staging again. It's been awhile since I've used amplitube and it seems like the signal is either really hot or not hot enough, especially if I'm trying to record any clean tones. Seems like that's because there's some discrepancy between levels at all stages of the signal path that don't necessarily end up at the same levels that they initially sounded like. With an initial line in, then an amp level, then your effects that can drastically effect your levels, the track volume level, and the post effects effects level (without compression I lose lots of volume here) there's a lot of staging. But that's just something to get used to and I haven't even checked the forums to see what might be protocol. Bottom line is I prefer the UI over any other ios multitracking app and the effects sound much more like effects .. they can get noisy, but that's not a big deal either. (I'm a big fan of using the looping feature for accidental tracks also) Thanks again for getting the cloud iap thing worked out. That's what I was trying to do last time I used the app, but it sounds like any and all bugs have been squished. ITS ALL GRAVY. THANK YOU AMPLITUBE! As promised the 5th star.
  • Finally The Same Studio Tones Where Ever I Go

    By Matthew N
    Love it, especially Mesa Boogie in app purchase)! I've been using Amplitube Vst plugin for the PC in the studio now for a long time. I own the Jimmy Hendrix Collection and Metal Collection as well as a few other custom shop selections and love it. I bought an ipad a few years back hoping to be able to take those signature tones I had created with me on a budget but was sourly disappointed. The M-Audio Fast Track Pro interface I was trying to use with it just had terrible latency and sound quality wasn't quite up to par with other apps or the PC version. But several years later I decided to try the newly updated version on a couple of my newer phones and was very pleased with it. My Fast Track Pro interface now works well with all my IOS Devises (better on the new phones) and I can finally get the same great tones I was getting in the studio since they started using the same engine as their PC/Mac counterparts (Should have done this from the start). I have the fender collection and the Mesa Boogi (Highly recommended in app purchase) Combined with the Fulltone OCD distortion peddle (also highly recommended.) The Multi-Track has been great for getting song writing ideas down before going into the studio. It has an amazingly warm analog sound though I wouldn't use it for anything serious as I have found a simple ios update can bring any app to its knees. (Always wait until they get the bugs worked out and your apps have updates that actually work.) My only real complaint is that the only gate peddle available effects the tone of the guitar in a strange way. But there is a nice noise reduction peddle with minimal effect of tone. They should have given us the same built in gate as the PC version instead of having to use one of the peddle slots. There are a few things about the interface on the phone I don't care for as it's sometimes hard to remember how to access certain features but the iPad has one of the best looking interfaces available. Feels like a real peddle board in front of you. Thanks Ik-Multimedia
  • Must Have Portable Rig for Guitar Players

    By RonCam725
    Realistic amp models. Requires in app purchases for most amps and effects. I know in app purchses annoy people, but the cost of the real gear would be much more. Get IRIG Hd2 guitar interface ($99) and get the IOS AND desktop versions free (thats over 150 dollars in software).
