To control AmpliTube in your DAW you will need to route a MIDI track to send MIDI data to your AmpliTube plug-in. Almost all DAWs can be used to accomplish this, but each will have their own unique way of doing so. Below we cover Ableton Live Lite 10, but if you need help with another DAW, or host program, please check your products user manual or check with our support team.

  1. Connect your iRig or Audio/MIDI interface to your system and launch Ableton Live.

  2. In Ableton, go to the Preferences menu and go to the MIDI sub section to set up your iRig or device for use as a MIDI device. Enable your device under both the Track and Remote fields.

    Note: For the iRig Stomp I/O, select "iRig Stomp IO" as opposed to the "Port 2" option.

  3. In Ableton, create a both a MIDI track and an Audio track. The MIDI track will be used to record the incoming MIDI messages, and the Audio track will record your Guitar or Instrument input.

  4. Add AmpliTube to your Audio track.

  5. Using the created MIDI track, set the "MIDI To" field to your Audio track with AmpliTube. Once done, record arm both tracks to allow incoming signal to be recorded.

  6. Open the AmpliTube plugin and you will now notice the small red circle in the lower right hand corner illuminating with MIDI input. Right click any control and select "MIDI Learn", this will allow your MIDI knob, button, or fader to learn to this control.

  7. For more in-depth control, click the MIDI button in the lower right hand corner of AmpliTube. Here you will have control over all currently assigned MIDI controls, as well as global MIDI PC (Program Change) and MIDI CC (Control Change) controls. Program Change messages will be associated with your Presets, these can be recalled with the associated MIDI PC message. Control Change messages will be associated with parameter controls. For example, bypassing Stomp FX, controlling Amplifier parameters, or making any adjustments to your gear's settings during your performance.

  8. Once you've recorded Audio and MIDI, there will be both an Audio as well as a MIDI clip. The Audio clip will have your dry/unprocessed Audio being sent through the AmpliTube plug-in. The MIDI clip will have all of your MIDI messages. These can be edited after they are recorded. Use the Clip view's Envelope section.
