MacProVideo says AmpliTube Slash for iPad is a "great sounding amp simulator"
Reviewer Mike Watkinson, who knows just about all there is to know about music making apps believes that AmpliTube Slash rises to the challenge of being named and endorsed by a rock mega-star.
Here are some of Mike's comments:
"The app takes the same approach as its human namesake, that is, keep things simple, focus on tone and just play!"
"if clean, glassy tones and the deep, wide West Coast distortion of hot-rodded Marshall stacks with everything on 11 is your thing then Slash does not disappoint."
"One interesting feature here is that with background audio turned on you can switch to another app and still hear the Slash app. So for example you could switch to GarageBand, where you may have created a backing track and play your guitar using the tone of the Slash app."
"You would need to be a discerning guitarist or Guns and Roses fan to really appreciate the difference between using Slash and GarageBand to generate your tone, but for those that are, this app really delivers the goods."
"Another area where the app will score with guitarists is the ability to control it in a performance situation with either IK’s [shortly available] iRig STOMP pedal, or any standard MIDI pedal board which can be connected via IK’s iRig MIDI."
Mike's final conclusion is:
"AmpliTube Slash is a great sounding guitar amp simulator."
