High-gain tone on your iPhone and iPad
Real-time mobile MESA/Boogie amps and effects
Now you can rock with the power of high-gain tone no matter where you are. Introducing the AmpliTube® MESA/Boogie® app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It gives you a full-featured MESA/Boogie guitar or bass rig that you can hold in the palm of your hands. Dial in the gain on five different amplifiers with matching cabinets that range from screaming Rectos to the classic Mark series. When you've hit that sweet spot, you can use up to 6 stompboxes created by the IK team exclusively for this app. With comprehensive editing and recording capabilites, AmpliTube MESA/Boogie is great for practicing, jamming and recording with high-gain tone anytime and anywhere.
The unique AmpliTube MESA/Boogie signal chain lets you build your MESA/Boogie rig with 4 simultaneous stompbox effects running into an amplifier head, space for 2 stompboxes post-amp, a speaker cabinet and a microphone. Each element of your tone is individually selectable, with fully operational controls for ultimate ‘tweak-ability’.
A handmade history
No one speaks high-gain guitar like MESA/Boogie. Since the late-'60s, Randall Smith, and from 1980 on, Dan Van Riezen, Doug West and James Aschow have been smashing the boundaries of heavy guitar with a myriad of innovative and handcrafted instruments and speaker enclosures. Four decades later, AmpliTube MESA/Boogie for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, gives you convenient access to 5 amps and cabs from their most toneful and popular lines: The Boogie Mark III, MESA and Boogie Mark IV, MESA Dual Rectifier, MESA Triple Rectifier and the master of mid to classic gain Brit, the TransAtlantic TA-30.

Each amplifier and cabinet has been rendered with the same degree of integrity and attention-to-detail that goes into the company’s physical products — both the front and the back panel controls have been replicated to provide performance and function with astounding realism.
Stomp on it!
What's a rig without stomps? AmpliTube MESA/Boogie comes with 6 stompboxes that complement the official MESA/Boogie amps and cabinets. This range of stomps includes a Noise Filter, a Metal Wah, a "Sustainer" compression pedal, an "Obsession" delay pedal, a "Surfer" flange pedal and a Monster Booster pedal that can bump the signal going into the amp by up to 25dB. Just like the amps, all of these stomps feature an intuitive interface that'll have you feeling like you can actually reach out and stomp on 'em.
Mike it in the Cab Room
You’re going to have a lot of fun experimenting and exploring sonic possibilities with AmpliTube MESA/Boogie. Its “Cab Room” feature gives you the keys to your very own virtual studio room that you can use to mike your speaker cabinets in 3D with up to 2 different microphones.
Now you can easily find the sweet spot for any amp/cabinet combo or try wild, new combinations for an unlimited assortment of inspiring tones.
The portable professional
And you can record those inspiring tones, and even turn them into full songs, thanks to AmpliTube MESA/Boogie’s many recording features. It comes with a built-in recording, mixing and editing system that can be expanded with up to 8 tracks of simultaneous multi-track recording. The recording mixer gives you full track controls: mute, solo, pan, level, per-channel sends and more.
And as if that wasn’t enough, AmpliTube MESA/Boogie's optional Studio mode lets you harness the raw potential of DAW-style timeline waveform editing. This means that you can compose, arrange, remix, edit and produce complete songs from start to finish while on the go.
And when you’re finished you can export and share your masterpieces as high-quality WAV or m4A files.
AmpliTube MESA/Boogie has a secret weapon. It's called Loop Drummer, and it's like a drummer who 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 comes with a selection of rock loops, and you can easily expand your collection thanks to its versatile library of additional Style Packs (with 64 loops in each) that cover nearly every rhythm you can imagine: Rock, Blues, Country, Pop, Funk, Punk, Metal, Electro and more. All in all, the Loop Drummer library has over 500 loops to choose from!
A truly super looper
Like to get loopy? AmpliTube MESA/Boogie's optional Looper feature gives you a convenient way to record and play up to 4 loops at a time. And you can export your creations using its handy export function. It's the perfect thing for when you want to experiment and come up with cool new ideas. Now you can create your own accompaniment and play with all sorts of different melodies, leads and chord progressions on the fly, and at the touch of a button.
The most precise tuner for iOS ever
AmpliTube MESA/Boogie comes with a pretty accurate tuner and metronome. But you can augment this with IK’s UltraTuner, the most precise tuner for iOS ever. It’s accurate down to 1/100th of a cent (that’s 10 times more accurate than mechanical strobe tuners, the hardware “gold standard” equivalent). It also features two modes that let you switch depending on whether you need an extremely visible tuner for low-light stage use or a hyper-accurate pitch-over-time display for more complex tuning scenarios: It's great for tuning all kinds of instruments and even for vocal and instrument pitch training and practice.
Learn your favorite riffs
AmpliTube MESA/Boogie is also a great tool for improving your chops. It has a slick song player section that lets you import songs and backing tracks. You get full control over these tracks, so you can speed them up or slow them down — all without changing pitch. It’s perfect for when you want to learn complex riffs and licks. It also features a “NO VOICE” mid-range cancelling feature that lets you turn off the lead vocal or guitar solo from an existing track so that you can step up and take center stage.
Connections are important. Connections are creative. And with AmpliTube MESA/Boogie you can take full advantage of iOS’s app-to-app routing options. You can use AmpliTube MESA/Boogie with Inter-App Audio to process and add effects to the sound of all your favorite mobile music creation apps. This means that AmpliTube MESA/Boogie’s realistic amplifiers, stompbox effects and other cool pieces of gear can be used with things like Apple GarageBand.
AmpliTube MESA/Boogie is also fully compatible with Audiobus (a third party app, sold separately). This lets you route audio through up to three apps. With it, you can use AmpliTube MESA/Boogie as an effects processor for an instrument or for audio coming from another app. You can also use AmpliTube MESA/Boogie to process and/or record the audio coming from other apps in the chain.
AmpliTube MESA/Boogie is also MIDI compatible, which means you can use your favorite MIDI controllers to change parameters and switch presets. It’s perfect for foot pedal and floor controllers, that you can connect with IK’s MIDI interfaces (like iRig MIDI 2, iRig Pro, iRig Pro Duo), and stompbox-style controllers, like IK’s iRig BlueBoard. Now you can wah, control volume, add gain, swap presets, adjust delay times and more, all without ever raising your hand.
