AmpliTube 5 VIR Explained

Learn how the technology captured every speaker cabinet in all its detail

A strong reason to upgrade to any paid version of AmpliTube 5 is our VIR technology, which features a completely re-engineered Cabinet section with all-new DSP.

IK's Volumetric Impulse Response (VIR™) uses 600 IRs per speaker, 1,200 IRs for a 2-speaker cab and 2,400 IRs for a 4-speaker cab, capturing a massive 3D array of mic placement options, plus all the interactions between speakers, cabinet and floor for a completely true-to-life sound.

AmpliTube's movable microphones now truly shine, with an easy-to-use grid that lets you snap to a precise IR point or seamlessly blend between multiple measurements.

Best of all, we've re-measured over 100 cabinets in AmpliTube 5 MAX, refreshing every single cabinet for a massive 143,000 IRs in all. How'd we do it? As this video shows, we created a custom-made, fully automatized, robotic measurement system.

It's a technological breakthrough when it comes to ultra-realistic sound and the most advanced and most comprehensive cabinet section ever.

You can now also import your own IRs and load them into AmpliTube 5 with the option to tilt or resize them, giving you total sonic flexibility.
