AmpliTube puts the power in your hands with a massive collection of virtual gear that you can use to practice, play and record with world-class tone anytime and everywhere. Build your own guitar or bass rig with up to 6 stompbox FX, an amplifier and speaker cabinet w/mic — you can even drag and drop your stomps to sit before or after your amplifier. Just plug your instrument into your iPad with one of IK's instrument interfaces like iRig 2 or iRig HD 2, and get ready to be blown away. AmpliTube gives you 7 stompbox effects, 3 amplifiers, 3 speaker cabinets and 2 mics, a free Loop Drummer Rock groove pack and a 2-track recorder. You can expand this selection via a massive library of over 100 pieces of gear that includes amps and stompboxes from the world’s best brands like Fender™, Soldano®, Ampeg®, ENGL®, Orange®, T-Rex® and many more. Thanks to AmpliTube's Cab Room, you will actually feel like you are in your own professional recording studio. Mic your cabinets in full 3D in a beautifully rendered virtual studio environment with 2 iconic guitar mics (expandable to 16 mic models available via in-app purchase). Get creative with loops in AmpliTube via its 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.  Loops are easy to set and trigger, with external control for live use. Need a drummer?

  • Why doesn’t it work for IPhone and MacBook??

    I like it well enough. I can play my guitar without annoying everyone around me. And the effects are great to change the sound of the guitar ..... BUT I bought some effects and amps to go with it for my IPad . But why they aren’t on my IPhone as well? And MacBook ? It’s also irritating that it doesn’t link to Bluetooth speakers or headphones. You cleverly avoided answering why IT DOESNT WORK ON MY IPHONE AS WELL AS FOR MY IPAD PURCHASE. DOES THIS MEAN I HAVE TO PAY TWICE?...
  • The work ikMutimedia put into the app has really started to show...

    I bought this app in 2015 & upgraded it to the full version in 2016. I’m writing my review on this CS version since I can’t write it on the full version. After getting the Slash, Hendrix & Orange packs I liked Amplitube, but preferred ToneStack from Yonac. The tones were okay but just too fizzy & digital for my tastes. I saw Greg Koch demo the Fender 2 collection on the desktop version of Amplitube and immediately wanted it for this iOS version. When it arrived I was blown away how far the emulating tech had come, and using the Fender 2 pack is a joy. I’m not saying the older amps aren’t usable; there are several amp/pedal combos from the earlier packs I’ve made good presets with. But the Fender 2 stuff is just in a different league. As I write this in mid April 2018 there’s a bundle sale going on, if you haven’t tried the app or Fender 2 I really recommend it. I’m no cork sniffer when it comes to amps, i.e. they must be tube, 50 years old, wrapped in tweed, etc. but I have a late ‘60’s Deluxe that this app comes very close to the ballpark indeed. Especially just a SM57, close mic’d rhythm tone that cleans up with some volume backed off...they’ve really captured that mic’d guitar amp tone. Highly recommended.

    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.

    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.

    You have to buy anything that's halfway decent...no thanks!
  • IK Multimedia products are difficult to use

    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

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
