New Marty Friedman presets FREE for all AmpliTube 5 users + join us on Instagram Live with Marty himself!

AmpliTube 5 leads the industry – and here’s how we’re celebrating

March 16, 2021 - IK Multimedia is pleased to offer all AmpliTube 5 users brand new artist presets created by Marty Friedman in celebration of AmpliTube 5's rightful place as the #1 in guitar amp and FX modeling software.

The celebration began three weeks ago with the free release of AmpliTube's Soldano® SLO-100™ amp head model for all AmpliTube users, followed by new artist presets from Joe Satriani and Gus G. Learn more about these artist presets and how to get your free Soldano SLO-100* here.

Now it's time for Marty to share his new presets for AmpliTube 5 with two more artists coming over the next two weeks.

*Soldano available through 3/31/2021 and all artist presets available through 4/8/2021

If that wasn't enough, join us Wednesday, March 17th at 6 pm PST/9 pm EST for an Instagram Live chat with Marty and IK's Mark Menghi. They'll be talking all about his new presets, what Marty is up to, and much more!

Formerly the lead guitarist for Megadeth and now with 13 solo albums to his credit, Marty is an expert player who knows how to create exciting tones in AmpliTube 5. You'll definitely want to add these to your collection. To get these new presets created by Marty, see the instructions below.

We're excited to be offering you these fresh collections. Custom Shop users are enjoying one or more new free presets per week, while all other users of AmpliTube 5 (SE and Max) are getting 20 new artist presets to explore each week from Marty and the rest of the artists helping us celebrate AmpliTube 5.

Don't have AmpliTube 5 yet? Upgrade to AmpliTube 5 Custom Shop for free. Try out all 400+ gear models, including your free-to-keep Soldano SLO-100 and 39 other amps & FX, and come back each week to grab your artist presets.

I thought AmpliTube 4 was great, but AmpliTube 5 is leagues above that. The sheer amount of usable presets right out of the box is overwhelming, and the ease of tweaking them even further to create your own is remarkable.

I am a guy who likes to get straight to playing my instrument without a lot of fiddling with knobs. The folks at IK must have had guys like me in mind when they developed such a fast and user-friendly system.
