All user reviews for the IK Multimedia AmpliTube
The manual that is included with the software is quite detailed , enough to get more than a basic understanding of the program.
The setup doesn't require a lot of time or effort , it's very fast and easy to set.
The software works great in its configuration.
The software is stable , level of stability is huge , very well settled product from IK Multimedia as you would expect.
I'm getting great performances creating my own sounds with this amp.
This product has 5 separate modules: Tuner, Stomp effects Pedal board, Amp Head, Cabinet and mic.
I really like the 160 included gear models , 51 effects , 31 Amp models , 46 Cabinet emulation , 15 Studio Microphone models and a lot of cool features.
The depth of the emulation and the quality is stunning , and combining with the effects you get a result that is as close it can get to a real guitar.
I also like the Drag & Drop which is very useful and doesn't take a lot of time.
My opinion about the value for the price is amazing , you can get this product for about 200$ , but getting such a musical tool for this amount of money is great.
Precision and quality of the sound is without a doubt probably the best it can get , not a single amp gives such a richness to the sound , such a power , depth and timbre.
I've tried several models , Amplitube and Guitar Rig are top ones for me , I pretty much put them on the same level.
Knowing what I know, I would get this product again , really love how simple is , how cheap it is and how great it is.
The manual provided by the soft is quite clear and enough to understand the basic functions.
The general configuration and setup is quite simple and fast, in just a couple of minutes you would have your own guitar AMP that you can use to get some great sounding guitars or even use on other instruments to get some weird effects.
The typical functions are quite accessible and clear and are easy to follow the way the soft works, every preset is well placed to be easily found and use.
The software works good and the gear is stable , however sometimes I had my Daw crashing because of this AMP, so keep that in mind to save your project along the way.
I'm getting good performances regarding emulating a real guitar sound , you know those Coldplay'ish sounds.
I've been using this Amp for a while, I would say a couple of years , and it's a great program.
What I like most about it is that it doesn't require a high cpu performance, I also do enjoy the design that is quite amateur but that's the catch, that way the work flow goes much much faster and more pleasant. I like also how much presets it provides and how you can contemplate something really unique and manage to achieve that effect or sound.
The price of this product is not very high so it's available to anyone, it doesn't cost much , around 200 $.
Precision and quality of sounds as I mentioned are great, this product is one of the top regarding amp emulation.
Knowing what I know, I would buy 2 programs , this product and as well Native Instruments Guitar Rig that is quite fun to play with.
Hatsubai's review"Not a huge fan"
I experienced some stability issues with this program. It would crash randomly, and I would have memory errors for whatever reason. My computer is no slouch, so it had to have been the actual application causing the issues. I never experienced the program hogging up too much memory, but it still took a decent chunk. If you're running a computer that's a bit dated, this software might not be the best. The worst part was the way it sounded. It sounded very much like a harsh and sterile modeler. I wasn't able to dial out that specific treble that modelers have, and the feel was atrocious. The effects weren't that great, either.
If you're looking for some sort of amp modeler out there, I recommend the many free solutions. Not only do they cost nothing, but they also sound better. Just get some sort of impulse loader for your DAW and you should be good to go. I can't really recommend this software, but I've heard some decent tones out of it from other people, so I can't totally dismiss it.

Not a single crash either, or in stand alone or VST
No performance problem on my PC (Dual Core 3GB + 2GB Ram). I bought "combos" of NI and I tried other plug-ins (Guitar rig,. IK Amplitube is really "over." Guitar Rig for example, artificial sounds nearby. The Digital Reverb and Chorus Digital are incredible. He just needs a little more flexibility in the use of noise gate of WW ... For the implementaiton Midi does not exist. ... It seems it happens
Only iTone brings sounds different important and therefore complementary, otherwise Amplitube sufficient to my happiness with my electric guitar.
I use it for 6 months and I do not regret my investment. I expect two things of IK:
- Version: acoustic guitar (or adapted presets)
- A little "midi" to work at least WW
- A bank of presets available on the Web
- A noise gate easier to use to make Gilmour!
Go ahead, test it and see it's the best the market (be careful to choose a good cable!)

Mamaz's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- No incompatibilities
- Easy to configure, you can download a pack of 200 presets (clean, distortion, FX, Artists AZ), and of course edit their own settings with one click.
- No need for manual but there know a minimum amps and guitars
- Then, PIV 2.4 Ghz 1G DDRAM, RME DSP Multiface
- Works very well, and if it goes through a tube preamp (I have an ART DPS GT12ax7C with a lamp), both say they believe it!
- The main advantage of numerical modeling, we have the opportunity to have a very wide range of sounds at your fingertips. And we win a lot of time, and spend the reagge Metal, jazz to country ... a few clicks.
As such AmpliTube is great, laplupart desired sounds are believable, some surprising, even if none are true, it peaked in terms of sound illusions.
I use it for two years, with a preamp overheated in the ass, and a few small cuts, it's a bomb.
I also like the Warp VST and distortions that are extremely powerful on their own "before" the mix,
the greenAmp is a notch below, but remains an alternative.
Marcus Brody's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Config: Athlon 2400 +, 512 DDR RAM, M-BOX ...
It works nickel (intrt ago!) And I can fuck a lot without a paddle or a crackles ...
The sound of this plug is nice
The presets are really not bad at all and make your own sounds is really a copy of ease ... Some nice paramtres: distance from the micro speaker, lamp power is used ... Trs really full!
Attempting to play LIVE (since Amplitube Live does not exist on PC), Ben has given very little even in the retouching ... Too bad ....
EDIT: good APRS more tests, I prfre the vamp for recording ...
For over a year I use this product (as Protools LE version) and your exact is nice!
Well I had with the promotion of the mbox but I dj test before (which was even more motivated my purchase of this card) ...
The ratio quality / price is not great even when (420 in Playback must be out) BUT your exact is the! I RPET: STRONGLY version of Live for PCistes .... EDIT: just happened
bENORMUS's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
See what others have already said this.
ADQUATION / PERFORMANCE
My config is quite comfortable 1 GB of RAM AMD 2600+ and it turns to Amplitube fingers in the nose, except that it has no fingers to turn pale but its number of herbs guitarists.
Many presets are available, we can add over time and thereby be taken to Santana, Hendrix, The Edge, ...
Do not have an exceptional guitar, or pre-amp ddi worthy of the name, I can say that a simple low-end Epiphone sound almost like a Fender Strat 3000 euros grace this plug-in which I worships.
Of course in absolute prfrerai I record a super skyscraper on a Roland JazzChorus but lack of resources, this plugin allows me to illusion.
For me this is the best amp simulator available in comparison with Izotope Trash parat me really means in terms of sonorits.
on the other hand must forget what plug-ins for bass. In fact I think he has a way to kill any lower, although registered or not.
I will say one thing to conclude: "Amplitube IK Multimedia, waiting only you!"
pfelelep's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Well it's that kind of plug sr eats cpu. but good to know what you want, the less cpu will make dots in mixdown as usual. on my dual 1GHz G4 Cubase 5 I 3-4 turns max.
I find the sound of this excellent plug-in. He caught up with number of shots and bass guitars lctriques dsastreux the sound. in direct use it is perfect, high gain attention to breath.
as often on the guitar multi-effects presets are mostly poor and blinds got reverb and other hacks. some presets for the low low boostent Manir really EXAGRES (3-band eq on rgls gain maximum / minimum frquence !!!). Half of the amp is russia MODELS, MODELS for the speaker is less bright: 3 of about eight offers can be used.
A product a bit expensive but does exactly the rle with many refinements.
benjjj's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
It is better to install in VST (I find it less demanding on SX)
PIV 1.3GHz, 640MB RAM BUS, 80GB IDE HDD
Under SX insert eats 20% resource
The sound is monstrous ...
Very versatile ...
Fo qd even spend a little time to tweak ...

cybermax3d's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I use it to play live (I go ... my guitar directly into my Terratec and I RESORS to the mixer) .... Of pure happiness .... For someone who does not want to invest a fortune in amps but would like their sound, this plug is for you .... It offers an incredible range of sound
Perspective latency and CPU usage .... With my little PIII 800 A MIDI track towards Battery (Drumkit from hell), a bass track (line with AmpliTube) and a guitar track (line too, with AmpliTube Obviously) .... and it is OK with a latency of 2ms!!
A plugin great but why only 4 presets !!!!!! It must be intelligently choose 4 or so sounds, you need a little redneck in the wings that changes the set of presets
I speak for use with live MIDI control with pdalier ....
