The applications AmpliTube was published
in the category Music on 2010-06-16 and
was developed by IK Multimedia.
The file size is 584.31 MB.
The current version is 4.8.0 and works well on
10.0 and high ios versions.
New in version 4.8: new Dimebag Darrell CFH collection, new 2019 bundles and more
While all the add-on packs are great (get the Dimebag collection!!) the basic AmpliTube pedals are real gems. For example, the “Metal Distortion” is based on the long out of production Boss HM-2 made famous by early Swedish Death Metal bands. Turn all four knobs to ten, put a noise gate in front, and run it through a dark cleaned up amp and you have done what they did. You will have the “Stockholm Guitar Tone.” The other apps don’t even offer this tone, let alone be so accurate to the analog counterpart. This is just one of many examples. This really is a great system that fits in my pocket with many features. One thing. I can’t afford a Stomp I/O right now. Is there any way to use an expression pedal for wah and pitch bend?
I had to reinstall the app and every time I try to restore my in app purchases , which is hundreds of dollars, I keeps getting a message saying it can’t connect to the App Store , but when I delete and reinstall other apps and restore in app purchases there’s no problem connecting and restoring. I literally feel like ik multimedia stole from me.
Updated 12/12/18 I reviewed this app prior, but just had to say that the wambler pinnacle absolutely nails the "brown sound". Been using this app for yrs now live. Works perfectly, tone is outstanding. Nuff said'. 😎🤘
I’ve not had a more perfect rig in my life. (For me) Amplitube iOS works exactly as advertised. But it wasn’t until I started using Amplitube iOS with IK Multimedia’s iRig Stomp I/O that things really took off. ANY and ALL reservations about Amplitube iOS have been erased since using it LIVE. I had a few concerns about latency — which is MUCH LOWER than every other iOS amp modeler — which were COMPLETELY ERASED using it a gigs and rehearsals. Also, having the option to turn amp cabs on or off gives me huge flexibility in shaping the final sound. I run Amplitube iOS on a 6th generation iPad through a couple Tech21 Power Engine 60s. This is the first time in almost 40 years of playing, that I’ve been 100% happy with my sound. Re-amping is a joy. My recordings are sounding dope. Everything else in my life might be turning to sh%#... but my guitar tone and rig are that bucket of gold at the end of the rainbow. I’ve finally caught the leprechaun!!!! Thanks IK!!
Is it just me but did this latest update bug the Audio Demo function? I no longer can audition the audio demo tunes. I am running 10.3.3 on iPhone6plus and i won't get any audible sound from the demo loops anymore.
Another person switching to jamup pro here. It was nice to get started with iRig—the interface was ~$30-$40, & there’s a free version of the app. I had my gripes with in app purchases constantly (& even after getting paid version) but ok. I got an iPad and found that it’s a separate thing entirely and no in-app purchases carry over... okay, annoying, but okay—I guess (there are technical explanations/reasons for this). I look into getting some manner of controller to actually be able to use the effects while playing with others (without stopping to tap on my device with the hands I’m using to play guitar)... and it’s another $100+ ... when there are cheap controllers that work for jamup for ~$20... and jamup pro is only $12 and is the same on iPad and iPhone. Unless jamup is a total disaster later on for some reason I haven’t found yet (seems to work about the same as amplitube if not a little more intuitive) I don’t think I’ll be back to the iRig ecosystem. Why not just make the interface a little more expensive and sell a version of the app that is actually all inclusive and doesn’t pester users with in-app purchases IK?? That’s what I wanted in the first place. I guess they’re making money and maybe their gear is really good, I’m not sure—I’m just not ready throw in with a company that seems to be out to nickel and dime us...
Use it all the time.
So I own the full version, but am told for many of the presets that I have to buy extra things. What use is the "full" version? Plus, I get more noise in this app than in Ampkit or a couple other emulators.
You do pay for this app. Over the years I have bought multiple effects, amps and extras, I also payed over 20 bucks when I first started using it. How is this paying customer treated? On a regular based I open the app and find pop up ads trying to get me to buy some other extra that must be acknowledged before using the app. IPhone x screen size is not supported 4 months after its release. I'm pretty sure there is bug with power management to. After a session of using this app and then no longer using it I often find the battery draining fast. If I look under settings this app is listed as the number 1 power consumer. This could be great app for practice instead it's just a frustrating money grab.
I have literally stopped using AmpliTube and now exclusively use JamUp Pro. The main reason is due to a hissing in the background that I can't get rid of. The problem is I have contacted customer support about it multiple times, because the hiss is not in any other amp simulator app that I use...only in AmpliTube. I have explained this to them, but the conclusion IK Multimedia keeps arriving at is it is my equipment's fault...even though I don't get hiss in any other app that I use. The noise gate works for the most part, but you can still hear it when you play. I don't have any effect or amp gain cranked...there is no physical reason I can figure why this app makes my guitars hiss. I refuse to make recordings with dirt in the background, so the only reasonable solution for me was to stop using AmpliTube and go to another amp simulator like JamUp Pro that does just about everything AmpliTube does, but without the hiss. I'm hoping some day this gets resolved, because I spent some hard earned money on this not so cheap app. I have talked to other guitarists who have used AmpliTube and they know about the hiss also.
...what even is this. How can they justify charging 24.99 for an app only to get inside and find that hardly any of the options are available after BUYING THE FULL VERSION. Most of the amps and effects still require you to purchase them individually for 5 bucks a pop. This is about as close to a scam as you can get. The sounds are actually okay but im left feeling like ive been duped out of my money. Joke, avoid. Go try ampkit
How is this the full version if you still have to pay for the majority of the pedals, amps, cabs? Feels more like a trial version. Yet another IK ripoff!
This is amazing, I can play bass anywhere I please with a whole list of tools at my disposal. I keep my iRig 2 in an old glasses case and bring my gear over to my girlfriends when we're having a quiet night. I don't think I've ever spent better money. The practice I can get in to each day now is phenomenal. Thank you IK
This app has gone from 5 stars to 1. Still no support in the latest update for iPhone 4's even though it was stated in an email. Get your sh#t together or hire people that can code properly.
Handy practice tool running through headphones the feature for playing music from your library is good. But here's my beef: Sounds horrible and noisy running through the irig stomp pedal into my amp. iPhone version and iPad versions are two separate purchases and the in app purchases are not across both devices either. The iPhone version has terrible latency and seems extremely noisy. The latency issue makes it unusable. I've parted with too much coin buying Ik media products. Don't follow my mistake
I've got this running well on an iPad and wanted to run it on an iPod Touch for reasons of convenience. Asked to pay again for the app and lost some purchases and took years for it to play nice with BlueBoard.
Paid alot of money for my equipment and everything seems to have minor faults not up to high standards at all bit disapointed
Great fun and awesome drum tracks but when you take the head phons out you can't hear the guitar and same when you upload to Soundcloud
This is by far the best product I have ever bought! I have a professional recording studio in my pocket.
Just updated amplitube ios and upgraded irig pro firmware. Now app tries to start up, but quits before user screen. Iphone 4 users beware.
This app keeps on crashing for me and there has been two updates. I really want to use this app please help.
After a recent update everything started going haywire don't spend the money, don't download the app, don't buy the hardware nothing but headaches
Wont work on iphone 4. Gimme back the original version i purchased. Or offer me my money back. Hate it when somebody sells me something i like the changes it after they have my money and it wont even work. Thumbs down. Terrible update. Lost all previous recorded songs as well.
My favorite practice amp just got better.
I can't to open after update. Btw. Layout on begining is great. Seems it is not to App Iphone 4 is too old for this App. I will buy new iphone & enjoy in this free app
Doesnt work on iphone 4
i started to have issues with the last version on my iphone 4 and now i have the latest version and it doesn't even work
"Oh my God! They just released an update! Now I can keep spending more money on in-app purchases for a product that I already purchased!!!" This is B/S. Do not buy this product. They try to keep selling you what you've already purchased. Greedy much? Eff U, J Bags!!! If even one person doesn't buy this rip-off product because of my review, then my work is done.
This App,it's In-App Purchases & companion Apps do everything they are designed to and more. Once you are comfortable with Amplitube, going on to use any of the other IK Apps is a logical next step. Kudos!
But at your own risks. You get a few amps, but other then not nothing much else. Very money grubbing app that is very complicated. Want the user Manuel to help? Well you can have it...as soon as you have to register on a website that uses your personal data and sells to advertisers. Serious buyers remorse right now.
Great app for any guitarist or singer, lots of extras too and the sound is amazing!
A must for all guitarists with an iPhone. Jam along with your favourite tracks. Use for recording guitars. Record your own riffs and ideas wither the in app 4 track recorder. I love it :)
Great app but buttons for scrolling between amps and pedals are too small. Would be cool to just swipe screen. Adding sings through network is a pain having to turn on pc etc. If you could just add from songs on iPhone itouch or iPad would be great. Would also be great be able to download pedal settings for pedals through the app. Apart from all this it's still a great first attempt. :)
Amazing app, great price, great sounds.. Easy to use. Love it.
