AmpliTube CS for iPad App Description

Want to turn your device into the ultimate mobile guitar and bass tone studio? 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? Use the built-in Loop Drummer system to jam to killer drum tracks. Use AmpliTube’s streamlined built-in 8-track recorder and DAW-style studio (available via in-app purchase) to record, edit, tweak and share your songs via SoundCloud, file sharing or email. Ready to get out of the studio? AmpliTube’s new Live Mode offers an optimized GUI designed specifically for live use. See your entire rig at a glance, with all the settings and controls you need displayed in an easy-to-read format designed for the stage. And control your virtual rig just as easily as you would a traditional multiFX pedal with new iRig Stomp I/O integration, so you can change presets, trigger FX, loops and more all right from your feet.

    I wish the Roland amp Chorus depth & rate would work like they do in vibrato. Thanks, Michael
  • Worked well for a while but is now unreliable

    By Timcos222
    Had used in 2015/16 a lot with no issue but now the app crashes too often and isn’t useable
  • It’s a cool app

    By Ra Ares
    Besides the the app not working from time to time like now it’s cool...
  • Lost days and plenty of money on this. Sounds produced are 4/5. Several frustrations.

    Gear purchased: iRig HD pro duo and iPad charging cord. Slash bundle. First, the charging cable claims it charges your iOS device but the advertising is accurate though misleading. Does not charge the interface. Need batteries or 500 mA power supply that you can’t get from IK Multimedia. Power supply for daisy chaining a pedalboard will suffice. Then you need to update firmware before the cable will power/charge iPad. I attempted on my Mac OS Mojave. Nothing. Then tried on PC Win 7 SP 1. Now the hardware is functional IF the Apple iOS device is plugged in LAST(very important). Gear comes with various entry line programs for Win/PC that all will request payment to make them anything close to garage band-like functionality. The bundle was not same as advertised, but AmpliTube can be used in garage band, so start there. Tones are solid 4/5, but you can do yourself a huge favor and get full version of PRotools 10 and 11 bundled with elevenrack, which will run about $600. If you unlock everything in amplitube’s bundle to “pro/HD/Ultimate” levels, you will pay waaay more than $1000, I think the DAW is $800 alone). Things to know about my suggestion is that PT 10/11 can be co-installed, older plugin support has been eliminated with advent of subscription Pro Tools. PT 11 stops compatibility at win7 SP1 and ?? Mac snow leopard or mountain lion?? The hardware for this is plastic and is not going to stand up to a tour circuit, but works fine to pack in a backpack. Elevenrack is heavy and rack mountable. Other similar product called eleven free in PT 10.3.7 and PT no longer supports many of the old bundled plugins that came bundled in 2011. I suggest skip the mobile setup and go real deal. We spend huge chunks of cash on hardware to sound good. This app can help you, but I just can’t trust the hardware to stand up to the test of time. Won’t replace it when it breaks, but can still use Amplitube in Garage band. Go that route if looking for portability. Hardware > $200 should have steel housing if the software is going to be priced this high. IK should be very forthcoming on the charging cable, MIDI cables should not have ~1\8” headphone plugs that hook to the interface, and this is good software executed very poorly by available hardware. Also note iPhone and iMac are one purchase. IPad is pay a second license. What baffles me is how IK chose to completely screw up a great app by executing its usability so poorly. You will spend over a day making all of this “portable solution” work. And don’t forget to buy a daisy chain power supply cable for a guitar pedalboard if you want to avoid the 2 AA batteries that people talk about replacing every 20 minutes. Good luck to both buyer and seller. Cust. Service did contact me via email after 2-3 days.
  • It's fine.

    By Randy Willcox
    Is fine. It does what you need. A bummer I wasted my free upgrade to the "essentials bundle" when I got my iRig 2 HD. It gave me more tones, but you still have to drop another $20 to get all 8 tracks to record on. I mean, 2 tracks? This isn't the 50s. But there are good ipad multitrack apps. Get a dedicated ipad DAW and use that. Then you have the best of both worlds.

    Absolutely the worst customer service I’ve dealt with in a long time. Bought the IRig2 HD and have been trying for two days now to get the full version that its supposed to come with it. I’ve put in help tickets that have not been responded to, and tells me the page does not exist when I try to check the status. Ive tried to call the customer service phone number in the US and it just rings, nobody answers. I’ve looked on the internet and this seems to be a common problem with their product that they don’t care to make right. It forced me to put at least one star, but if zero was an option, I would chose that!
  • Great (Alternative) way to play without......

    By Studderman
    Great way to play without having to spend $1000s on am-s and pedals and sound effects . Everything you need in one app. Yes it does cost money, people want are complaining like it supposed to be free!! Its well worth the money and sounds like the real thing(too its counterparts). Amps, pedals, sound effects, mics, and so on. Stop complaining people. Its well worth it.
  • Help, it’s crashing every time I try to open it right before my gig!

    By hcyrcugvy
    Help please!
  • Keep an open mind here

    By K3RTW
    I have read a number of reviews complaining about the cost of the stompboxes and effects and that the company just wants your money. Keep an open mind when trying an app like this. You get all kinds of great functionality for pennies compared to what it would cost in real hardware. There is no comparison. I like Fender amps so I bought a bundle of them. I needed a set of the typical effects (delay, chorus, overdrive) and was set with about $15 out of pocket. I needed an octave pedal, got one for another $4. Also, do yourself a favor and check out the videos of pros using the app. There is a good one for the Stomp IO that gives away a couple tips that are worth your time. For example: dime the volume on a Fender Twin Reverb and get all the tone and gain w/o killing your ears or your audience’s ears. I always complain that I can’t get my amp up loud enough to really get the tone I want. Well, now I can.
