Here's what MusicRadar has to say:

"It was a hard-fought battle for the top spot of this list, there are so many amazing plug-ins out there right now, but we've decided to go with IK Multimedia's AmpliTube 5. It packs in an incredible array of amp models and effects, with official models from Fender, Orange, and others to assure you of its quality."

Reasons to buy:

+Intuitive new graphical user interface
+It'll be a long, long time before you run out of models to tweak
+Various entry options including free!

IK Multimedia's original Amplitube was one of the trailblazers in amp and effects software. Twenty years later, it has come a long way and Amplitube 5 proves IK Multimedia is still ahead.


"The options here are staggering – with not only a wealth of stellar amp and effects but features for writing and performance too. But for this latest version of Amplitube, V.I.R Technology is a notable evolution; it offers millimeter-accurate virtual mic placement, culminating in 600 Impulses per speaker to completely re-shape tonal response and character far beyond EQ tweaking."
