Guitar World just published their buyer's guide of the 8 Best Amp Simulators for 2023 and AmpliTube 5 MAX is their top choice.
Scoring 5/5 stars, IK's guitar amp and FX modeling software bundle earns praise for its huge collection of amp sims, official brand/artists collections and ToneNET preset sharing.
Here's what Guitar World says on why AmpliTube 5 MAX deserves to be in your studio toolbox:
For the very best amp simulator package on the market, IK Multimedia's AmpliTube 5 MAX is the most authentic sounding package available right now, with a host of brand-endorsed amplifiers at your fingertips and a plethora of effects to boot.
"IK Multimedia's AmpliTube 5 MAX has over 100 integrated amp sims featuring official models from Fender, Orange and MESA/Boogie – to name just a few. So many guitar amps may seem daunting, and you'd be forgiven for assuming that many wouldn't hold a candle to their physical counterparts, however, AmpliTube gets you intangibly close to authentic, so much so that you'd be forgiven for thinking you had an amp sat next to you in the room.
"It isn't just amps, as AmpliTube users have access to a huge selection of effects, which can be stacked in any way the user desires, which makes this an all-in-one solution for users to build a virtual rig. It also has a really excellent 'mixer' function, that allows the user to blend multiple cabs, mics and DI together with effects to get a perfectly balanced tone, that is ideal for recording.
"If this all seems a bit much and you need inspiration to get started, you can access AmpliTube's free preset-sharing platform, ToneNET, where you can download other users' presets and share your own."
