Yeah that's right!
Immeadiatly after opening, ear splitting noise started playing
this app is really good i think people should at least give it a chance before they give up and say it's not good and it sounds horrible it's NOT hard to set up for good sound. this app has a lot of different pedals and they sound great for a digital app. don't knock it till you try it seriously.
The free version wants you to buy EVERYTHING. they give you next to nothing, nothing I don't already have on my physical amp. I bought an iRig and was super disappointed to find out that after downloading over 600mb to get this app, it was almost empty and everything was an in-app purchase. So what, pay $19.99 additional to what I paid for my iRig? Makes me wish I never would've bought it in the first place. I was really looking forward to using it.
Cannot import from Apple Music, and probably couldn't hear if you could. App is way too noisy. Background noise is deafening while instrument signal is barely audible.
A lot of the complaints about this app relate to the nickel and diming aspect of what they do. But let's face it, they're smart and know that guitarists like to tinker with sound and use their intuitive sound sorcery to create the most unique sound for their electric guitar imaginable. And let's face it, for the $99 and the all-in feature they offer which comes with a ton of amp and effects pedals choices, as a guitarist, you'll have enough effects and amp combinations to be busy making new guitar sounds for the rest of your natural born life!!! Given the other option of purchasing effects pedals which could easily cost up to $1000 and space in your apartment u don't have, suddenly, the investment to pay a few dollars for having it all stored on your iPhone doesn't seem that bad. Given I have an acoustic electric, I was stunned at how thrashy I could make my guitar sound. I also noted the clarity of all six strings while concocting a very psychedelic setting (think like Big Star, 1975 psychedelic). The best feature of amplitube is its interface with garageband. It's highly intuitive and gives me a solution to the horrid touch guitar instrument features in Garagband that are limiting. Given that you could add 4 more fx settings from G/B with the six you could use on amplitube, I must say that my desire to play and record has exponentially awaken. The 8 track feature is useless in this app as is the guitar tuner and play along drum patterns. Garageband's percussion instruments are way better. In general, amplitube's set up isn't very intuitive but if you play with it a lot, it can pay you dividends with stellar sounds. Final big plus is amplitubes ability to interface with amplifiers for live recordings. The save settings feature needs improvement in that it isn't user friendly enough. But again, over time, you'll get over those growing pains. Guitars pay the $119 for the app and all-in; it's worth it.
There you go, this app is great if you just want to make some loops and play along. Most of the in app purchases are fair, and don't cost too much. The problem is the recorder, that thing is a piece of garbage. I say this because it isn't just a nice simple recorder which allows you to record songs. Instead it's a freaking monster. You only get one channel to work with and you aren't allowed to easily use your loopers while recording! That thing took 20$ from me. If you want to jam it is a good app. If you want to record go find a microphone.
Bought the irig hd and couldn't be happier with that. However, I installed the amplitube app. (which if you look at the irig hd box, makes it seem like if you buy the irig, all sorts of great amplitube stuff is free). The free version is free. And by registering your irig you get the "paid" app version. Pffft. Sure, you get a couple of amps and pedals, but no more than you get for the free garage band. And with all the free stuff out there, I'm not about to shell out additional $$ for in app purchases.
If you upgrade to Amplitube full you have to purchase all the pedals again that you paid for in Amplitube Free. They don't tell you until you have already paid for the upgrade. Customer service told me to just buy it and tell apple to reimburse me but they charge the names of the bundles so that Apple cannot tell they are the same in app purchases. IK M makes good products but then cheats there own customers; it's company m.o. for hardware and software. I avoid them now.
I was excited to download the JH Marshall amp and with eager anticipation plugged in multiple times over a month... to no avail, it sounds identical to the 'stock' amp set to 'clean'. No tweaking on any settings make a difference- twist the gain up, may as as well say a prayer, no change in sound. I'd rate as a 1 and the app is not completely worthless. However it's a lot of $ and hassle not to be able to mess with your tone.
Fortunately I bought this for the 1/4" interface, and the app was "free" with purchase. It's basically useless unless you invest in a ton of upgrades.
Since update to ios8 none of the pedals work making all previous purchases a waste of time and money. At this point it's nothing more that a storage hog.
The fixes now renders this App useless
The updated removed the distortion peddle.
PERFECT AMP, love the drums!!! Great for on the go or when your trying to keep it down.
I purchased the iRig and it sounded bad. Blamed it on the hardware. Recently bought the iRig HD. Hardware is better, now the app is complete junk. I have the full version app, it still wants you to buy everything seperatly, and it has ZERO support for Bluetooth out, so if you are planning on playing through a wireless Bluetooth speaker or something, keep looking. This app is garbage, and so far everything they make is junk as well.
Glitchy, and the app doesn't function properly
The volume is not very loud coming out of the iphone5 speaker. AmpKit is way louder!
QUICK, EASY, GREAT SOUND QUALITY!!!
