Dynamic, amp-like playing experience

Sweetwater knows the most important thing to a guitar player is how an amp sounds and feels, and AmpliTube nails it. A common complaint from guitarists is that software just doesn't respond like an amp does, but AmpliTube gives you such a realistic playing experience that you won't believe you're playing through a virtual amp. Plus, you can add room sound and adjust your virtual mics to dial in your absolute sound. Amplitube 4 is a fabulous way to craft your guitar tone!

Ultra-realistic Cab Room

AmpliTube 4's new Cab Room feature gives you a new level of flexibility and customization, with five distinct customization sections: cabinet selection with size adjustment, where you choose your speaker cab to match your amplifier; individual speaker selection, where you can swap out individual speakers; mic selection and placement for finding the sweet spot; room selection, where you select the recording environment; and a mixer section that lets you mix the levels of close mics, room ambience, and direct amp signal, plus overall main mix.

Onboard 8-track Recorder/DAW in standalone mode

When used standalone, AmpliTube 4's onboard 8-track DAW makes recording your musical ideas easy. It features robust, sequencer-like waveform editing that's ideal as a sketchpad for new ideas, or as a full-fledged recording solution. Any way you use it, you'll be productive, right from the get-go. Each track features standard treble, midrange, and bass EQ, pan control, level, mute, solo, and record enable, plus an FX enable button.

  • Ultra-realistic virtual amplification for your guitar and bass
  • Five new "British" amp models from '70s, '80s, and '90s

Worth the Upgrade

The new room IRs and speaker simulations sound phenomenal; they absolutely rival the best IRs out there imo. God knows I've tried 'em all...especially all the G12M/G12H/Silver Bell AlNiCO variants. Add to that one more Plexi model I get to tinker with (the Red Pig model). Heaven!I'm nailing the classic tones with the update. That's no exaggeration. I'm getting all the clankiness and response, the compression and much of the sustain I'd get from the real deal amps. Though I've recently acquired one of the main non-master volume Plexi style amps I have GASed after for years, I love this program because I can record tones that are deceptively close without offending the neighbors. For example--I can route my head (via loadbox) into my interface, pull up Amplitube 4, turn off the amp section and just use Cab Room. The results have been beyond pleasing; both using ONLY Amplitube 4 AND using my own head. I'm going to give it a perfect 5.0 simply because there's nothing else that I feel is missing. It's everything I have needed and wanted it to be. This is the apex of software guitar amp modelling; any better and you might as well just buy the real thing (which you should be anyways). I genuinely feel so sorry for people who spend $2500 on an Axe-Fx or similar in place of EASILY acquiring a used Bogner/Marshall/H&K for that price.

IK Amplitude 4 Software Suite

Look and Listen, this software is great! There are software suites within the basic software itself. Yes, the additional suites cost more money, but you get a lot for your dollar - very user friendly, intuitive, powerful, and great sounding software. I have both the Fender and Rock Suites amongst the others to choose from. It's like having your own personal studio (guitar/bass guitar) with studio quality amps, mics, rooms, stomp boxes, inserts, racks, and of course a tuner. For the serious hobbyist or professional, this software will bring a lot of joyful hours of playing!

Amplitube 4

This software is very cool. Using it as a plug in, in Pro Tools. Very impressed! Software that truly sounds good and is so easy to do.

Amplitube 4

The software itself is really cool, most of the "stock" models for amps, microphones and effects are superior to others that I've tried (Native Instruments, Waves GTR3, Line 6,) and the add-ons (such as the Mesa/Boogie pack) can be truly amazing and very life-like. I only have one complaint, and that is that the software "includes" all of the presets for basically everything they've ever produced, of which only a tiny fraction are available with the purchase of Amplitube 4 by itself. This means countless presets that are missing models for cabs, amps, mics, etc., which means that they may not sound anything like what they are intended to sound like (and often sound really crappy.) I realize that they did this so that the consumer can see all of the other cool products that are available and may want to try/buy them, but I find it quite frustrating and honestly a bit misleading that they are all available from the Preset menu with no distinction made between those that you actually have installed completely and those that are just partials. I'd definitely re-engineer this for future releases.
