Your expandable guitar rig and recording studio... always with you
AmpliTube — A complete professional guitar & bass multi-effects processor, recording and editing studio and riff-learning tool for iPhone and iPod touch.
AmpliTube 3 turns your iPhone and iPod touch into the ultimate mobile guitar/bass, multi-effects processor and recording studio/editing suite, offering up digital versions of your favorite analog amps, effects and recording gear. AmpliTube gives you incredibly realistic amp tones and effects, full recording processing and editing capabilities, a powerful programmable drummer for easy creation of drum parts, and a timeline-audio editor and sequencer — all in a mobile app from the leaders in analog gear modeling software for professional recording studios. Now you can jam anywhere and capture your ideas right as they happen.
The signal chain
To take advantage of all AmpliTube has to offer, you first need to get your guitar/bass/vocal/instrument sound into it. We’ve got some fabulous ways for you to do that, including the new iRig PRO universal audio/MIDI interface, the iRig HD digital audio interface, the original iRig guitar interface, the iRig STOMP “stompbox” style interface, and the iRig Mic, iRig PRE and iRig MIC Cast compact microphone. Once you get your signal into your iPhone or iPod touch, you’re ready to rock!
Your new favorite guitar rig - always with you
At its most basic level, AmpliTube is an incredibly fun and intuitive guitar-and-bass rig that allows you to jam anywhere with world-class tone. Just like a traditional live setup, you get a tuner, three daisy-chained stompbox effects running into an amp-head with effects, plus a speaker cabinet and a microphone.
In itself, that’s a pretty amazing thing, and you’ll be completely blown away by the huge range of tones you can dial in, but AmpliTube also offers you a full-featured, expandable recording studio with a built-in drum module, a mastering suite, a timeline-audio editing studio plus some nifty tools to help you learn and practice your licks anywhere you go. Read on.
AmpliTube comes with 11 stompbox effects (delay, fuzz, overdrive, wah, envelope filter, chorus, flanger, phaser, octave, noise filter + distortion, once registered), 5 amps (clean, crunch, lead, metal, bass) with full controls, 5 speaker cabinets and 2 microphones (dynamic and condenser). If you plug in the new iRig PRO or iRig HD, you instantly get an additional 4 pieces of gear: the Metal 150, the Metal W, the Wharmonator pitch bend and harmonizer “whammy” pedal, and the X-Flanger.
So basically AmpliTube includes everything you need to cover virtually any style of music. You can spend hours and hours creating guitar and bass tones with all the killer effects and amps that are included. But we couldn’t stop there…
And more gear
Now, here's (yet another) cool part: You can also add more gear to your AmpliTube version via the in-app purchase system. You can add all the AmpliTube Fender® gear, the VocaLive vocal effects processors, the AmpliTube Slash and the AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ gear models, for an amazing array of tones and effects, all on your iPhone or iPod touch. You can get entire collections, or individual models like the Soldano® “Super Lead Overdrive” SLO-100 and the classic Ampeg® B15R Portaflex “Flip Top,” the T-Rex Engineering® “Moller” Classic overdrive and more.

A recording and editing studio — always ready and at your fingertips
AmpliTube has always been about putting your favorite amps and effects in your pocket so you can jam anywhere. But now you can capture your ideas quickly by recording your performances with the built-in recorder, edit to perfection with the new AmpliTube Studio timeline-audio editing suite, and then share your compositions by exporting high-quality WAV or m4A files.
No setup required
AmpliTube comes with a built-in single-track mixer/recorder that you can expand to a full-fledged professional multi-track studio by adding the 4-track recorder plus master effects section (available as in-app purchase) which is all housed in an ultra-cool vintage-style "cassette tape" recording interface. In AmpliTube, the recording mixer gives you full track control including mute, solo, pan, level, and a send into the master effects section, providing you with a powerful yet incredibly intuitive way to record. And it’s always “on” and available with no additional setup, crabby studio engineers or temperamental producers. You’re free to record any time, anywhere.
What’s more, the new AutoFreeze feature allows you to “freeze” the effects on a track (in other words, write them to the track), freeing up AmpliTube’s effects engine to use on another track, which can then be frozen and so forth. As a result, you can have full effects on every track. And if you want to go back and tweak an effects setting, no problem, you can “un-freeze” the effects on a track to make your adjustments.
AmpliTube Studio “DAW-style” editing
The new AmpliTube Studio feature (available via in-app purchase) gives you a full professional editing suite with DAW-style, timeline-audio region editing and production tools, plus full track controls, looping and punch-in recording. This means that you can now compose, arrange, remix, edit and produce complete songs from start to finish on the go, anytime and everywhere, with the same level of high-end studio quality found in your desktop/laptop recording, sequencing and editing programs. Just another handy dramatic turn in the mobile music-making revolution! Feel free to thank us with royalty checks.

AmpliTube now has a secret weapon called Loop Drummer that always shows up, is always in the pocket and doesn’t hit on your girlfriend. It’s a loop-based drum module that gives you smokin' drum tracks to record, jam, and practice with. It's like having your own session drummer inside AmpliTube — ready to rock out 24/7. Loop Drummer automatically syncs to the transport of AmpliTube's recorder, allowing you to record your parts with a solid drum track anchoring the rhythm. In Studio mode, the first track you see at the top of the screen is the “Loop Drummer” track. Here, all your drum parts can be rearranged, deleted or duplicated with simple gestures. And don’t worry — the Loop Drummer track doesn’t take up one of the 4 tracks available for recording. We wouldn’t do that to you.

AmpliTube is now fully compatible with Apple's new iOS 7, including the Inter-App Audio feature, which allows you to connect the output from one app to the input of another. AmpliTube functions as an "Effects" app in an Inter-App Audio setup, processing audio from other apps in realtime with its powerful amp models and effects. For example, it works great in tandem with Apple GarageBand.
AmpliTube is also Audiobus compatible. Audiobus is a third-party app (not included) that allows for realtime audio routing between up to three apps. Starting with version 2.9.5, AmpliTube can be used in any of the three Audiobus slots — Input, Effects, Output — in the Audiobus chain.
INPUT: Play guitar or bass through AmpliTube's amp models and effects, and then send that audio on to other apps in the chain. You could even send a Loop Drummer track into the other apps.
EFFECTS: Use AmpliTube's powerful models and effects to process audio from another compatible instrument app, such as SampleTank, iLectric Piano or iGrand Piano, before sending to its final destination.
OUTPUT: Use AmpliTube to process and/or record the audio coming from the other apps in the chain. If you have the AmpliTube Studio option installed, AmpliTube will function like a computer-based DAW.
A guitar teacher always with you
AmpliTube also has an extremely cool song player section that lets you import songs or backing tracks, then adjust the tempo (slow it down/speed it up), without changing pitch, so you can learn licks or just practice your chops. The new NO VOICE vocal-canceling feature allows you to turn off the lead vocal or guitar solo from an existing mix so that you play along with the track yourself. A chromatic tuner and a metronome are also included, so you always play in tune and in time.
AmpliTube is MIDI compatible, which means you can use your existing MIDI floor controller to "wah", control volume, add gain, change presets, adjust delay times, and anything else you can tweak on the screen — only without touching a thing. And it couldn't be easier to use: simply connect your MIDI interface (like our iRig MIDI interface for iOS devices) to your iPhone or iPod touch, then connect your MIDI controller to the interface and you are ready to control.
AmpliTube includes a powerful preset system for managing all of your sounds. Presets are sound settings created with various combinations of gear and saved for quick recall. They're organized in a folder-panel system to make storing, finding and recalling your library of sounds even easier. There are also 4 dedicated "favorites" buttons with 10 available banks store your 40 most used presets for instant recall. And when the entire AmpliTube Fender® gear bundle, AmpliTube Slash gear bundle, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ gear bundle or the entire VocaLive effects bundles are purchased, the new preset system shows their related presets.
