It’s AmpliTube’s 20th Anniversary!

We’re taking your sound to new places

Thank you for playing guitar! We agree. It’s the greatest instrument of all. And thank you for choosing IK Multimedia to help find your sound whether it’s on guitar or bass.

Reaching over 3.5 million registered AmpliTube users we couldn’t have accomplished this 20-year milestone without players like you.

AmpliTube has come a long way since 2002. At the start, we could only imagine what things would be like 20 years on. But here we are with AmpliTube 5, so close to owning the actual gear it's hard to hear the difference, even for pros!

To celebrate AmpliTube’s 20th anniversary we’ll be running multiple promotions throughout the year. Click HERE to see the deals on AmpliTube products happening now.

You’ll find illustrations below of our progress over the years and some of the great players who were happy to let us model their gear and share it with you.

So what’s next? We’re heading in an exciting new direction for AmpliTube. It’s a place where you can share and download presets with other AmpliTube 5 users. Learn all about ToneNET HERE.

From Past to Perfect

Award-winning Tech Behind the Tone

DSM™ (Dynamic Saturation Modeling) is ideal for modeling tube preamps and tube power amps by using complex mathematical functions that adapt the “shape” of the analog circuit in real time.

DIM™ (Dynamic Interaction Modeling) offers incredible realism modeling the behavior of every component in the circuit all the way down to its smallest nuance and characteristic.

VIR™ (Volumetric Impulse Response) lets you choose from a massive 3D array of mic positions for any speaker cab, with all the interactions between speakers, cabinet and floor for a completely true-to-life sound.

VRM™ (Volumetric Response Modeling) offers ultra-accurate rotating speaker effects, free dual mic placement plus room ambience and response to custom craft your final tone.


AmpliTube Artists

Over the years IK has worked with legendary guitar players modeling their gear and curating artist presets for AmpliTube. As we’ve advanced the technology, so have we added more rock icons to the roster. Now with the launch of ToneNET comes an exciting opportunity for a growing number of artists to communicate and share their favorite tones directly with a community of AmpliTube users.
