Join the mobile music revolution! AmpliTube is an essential app that lets you use your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to process, play and record your guitar, bass or other instrument while on the go.
AmpliTube is an all-inclusive tone studio that gives you an expandable collection of ultra-realistic virtual versions of some of the most coveted gear on the planet.
Build the guitar or bass rig of your dreams and then use its powerful recording and editing tools and other handy features to capture your creativity whenever and wherever the inspiration strikes.
Get the generational sound of Metal with this collection of gear that defined a sound from the '70s thru the '90s to today. Includes 3 amps & cabs: Brit 8000, JCA20H, MH-500 Metalhead. Includes 3 stomps: Power Grid, T-Rex Mudhoney, Ambass'dor.
The Brit 8000 is based upon the early '80s JCM800, the amp that although most think of the Plexi’s as the defining tone of a pushed Marshall, in reality it’s the JCM800 that people are hearing. The JCM800 was the first departure from the Plexi format designed for players who desired a “hotter” front end and more control over the overall output volume. The result? More preamp overdrive and crunch at controllable volumes.
Officially Certified Jet City Amplification 333® JCA20H™ Model. Pure, simple and full of tube tone, JCA20H is a single-channel amp with absolutely no gimmicks or unnecessary features that might otherwise dilute the all-tube signal path. With full EQ control and separate Preamp and Master volumes, JCA20H can deliver tones from spanky clean through crunchy overdrive.
Officially Certified MH-500 Metalhead™ Model. Designed from the ground up to provide the perfect amp for modern down-tuned and 7-string guitarists, with a searing gain and a punishing low end that is perfect for more agressive styles of Rock and Metal. Its solid-state power amp gives enough headroom for incredible note definition even when distorted, and the preamp has an unmatched amount of gain for lead players.
4x12 Brit 8000
Based on the Marshall® 1960 Lead Vintage Slanted 4x12" Cabinet equipped with G12-80.
4x12 Closed Modern
Based on Marshall® 4x12" Guitar Cabinet.
Based on the Fender® MH-412SL 4x12" Closed Back Guitar Cabinet. Officially certified by Fender®.
Officially Certified Seymour Duncan® Power Grid Stomp Box Model. The Power Grid is a high gain, solid state distortion pedal capable of a myriad of tones thanks to a three-band active EQ section. It is perfect for all styles of rock. The pedal is designed to provide powerful overdrive and distortion suitable for all kinds of rhythm and lead playing thanks to five stages of discrete Class A circuitry. This raw horsepower is managed by a multi-element gain and volume control system that provides very fine control. The tone is further refined with three bands of active EQ. Each band allows for up to 12dB of boost or cut at selectable frequencies for maximum control. This allows you to create tones with a far greater degree of surgical precision than what’s possible with any distortion pedal with a traditional passive EQ.
Officially Certified T-Rex® Mudhoney Model. The T-Rex Mudhoney is designed for those looking for an in-your-face wall of sound jumping out of the speakers. The boost button and the tone knob give you the ability to dial in any sound you like from ultra fuzz to smooth jazz sounds. With the boost function bypassed, the Mudhoney delivers moderate gain and a rich, smooth sound that many jazz guitarists prefer. The boost button engages a high gain circuit for a more aggressive sound.
Based on Marshall® Guv'Nor. This pedal is a model of a beloved '80s-era distortion pedal by a company known for making amps with amazing distortion. This model packs a whole powerful amp into a single stomp box.
This new Early Metal Collection is available now as an in-app purchase and is included in the new All-In Bundle Collection 2022. Relevant Amps and FX are also included in the new All-Amps 2022 and All-FX 2022 bundles. Purchasing the All-In Bundle 2022 will unlock all new gear models released in 2022 automatically!
The first thing you’ll notice about AmpliTube for iOS is that it’s incredibly fun and easy to use. It lets you drag and drop pieces of virtual gear to create custom guitar and bass rigs comprised of 6 stompbox effects (4 pre-amp and 2 post), an amplifier and a speaker cabinet with up to 2 positionable microphones.
The second thing you’ll notice about AmpliTube is that it sounds amazing and looks beautiful. That’s because it utilizes the same digital signal processor as the acclaimed AmpliTube Custom Shop for Mac and PC. You'll hear the difference and immediately understand why AmpliTube has been used on countless records and has since become the industry standard tone studio for professional producers and recording studios around the world.
Check out this sound comparison between AmpliTube for iOS and for Mac/PC.
And those good looks? Let’s just say we’re obsessed with detail — each piece of virtual gear has been meticulously modeled so that it looks and sounds as good as it does in real life.
AmpliTube’s new Live Mode offers all the essential information you need, at a glance and in a layout that’s easy to read on-stage.
See your entire chain clearly, with visual indicators of what’s on and off, or easily see and change your presets.
Live Mode activates with a touch and eliminates anything that would distract you from your performance.
You get a live-optimized interface that rivals any pedalboard, without sacrificing AmpliTube’s world-class studio sound.
AmpliTube offers deep, easy to edit integration with a range of controllers.
Connect iRig Stomp I/O,
IK’s revolutionary USB pedalboard controller and audio interface that lets you stomp effects,
change presets, adjust settings and more, all with the feel of a traditional pedalboard.
Or connect iRig BlueBoard and enjoy editable, wireless control over presets and effects.
AmpliTube is also MIDI compatible so IK’s MIDI interfaces (like iRig MIDI 2)
let you connect external controllers and associate patches or parameters with just a few taps.

We imagine that’s more than enough for you to get started. However, a part of the beauty of AmpliTube is that you can expand it thanks to our massive library of additional gear.
And this isn’t just any old gear, we’re talking world-class, drool-worthy pieces from some of the biggest and most respected brands in the industry, like MESA/Boogie®, Orange®, Fender®, ENGL®, and more. We’ve even got artist collections to choose from, like AmpliTube Slash, Brian May Collection, Dimebag Darrell CFH Collection and AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™. And all this gear is organized and presented in an easy-to-use carousel system that makes you feel like you've just walked into your local guitar store. Wanna rock like the pros? AmpliTube gives you the gear; the rest is up to you.
You’re going to have a lot of fun experimenting and exploring sonic possibilities with AmpliTube. Its “Cab Room” feature gives you the keys to your very own virtual studio room that you can use to mike your speaker cabinets in 3D with up to 2 different microphones.
Now you can easily find the sweet spot for any amp/cabinet combo or try wild, new combinations for an unlimited assortment of inspiring tones.
Read more about Cab Room here.
And you can record those inspiring tones, and even turn them into full songs, thanks to AmpliTube’s many recording features. It comes with a built-in recording, mixing and editing system that can be expanded to provide up to 8 tracks of simultaneous audio recording. The recording mixer gives you full track controls: mute, solo, pan, level, per-channel sends and more.
And as if that wasn’t enough, AmpliTube MESA/Boogie's optional Studio mode lets you harness the raw potential of DAW-style timeline waveform editing. This means that you can compose, arrange, remix, edit and produce complete songs from start to finish while on the go.
And when you’re finished you can export and share your masterpieces as high-quality WAV or m4A files.

AmpliTube has a secret weapon. It's called Loop Drummer, and it's like a drummer who always shows up, is always in the pocket and doesn't hit more hardware than drums. It’s a loop-based drum module that gives you smokin’ drum tracks to record, jam and practice with.
It comes with a selection of rock loops, and you can easily expand your collection thanks to its versatile library of additional Style Packs (with 64 loops in each) that cover nearly every rhythm you can imagine: Rock, Blues, Country, Pop, Funk, Punk, Metal, Electro and more. All in all, the Loop Drummer library has over 500 loops to choose from!
Read more about Loop Drummer here.
Like to get loopy? AmpliTube’s optional Looper feature gives you a convenient way to record and play up to 4 loops at a time. And you can export your creations using its handy export function. It's the perfect thing for when you want to experiment and come up with cool new ideas. Now you can create your own accompaniment and play with all sorts of different melodies, leads and chord progressions on the fly, and at the touch of a button.
Read more about Looper here.
AmpliTube comes with a pretty accurate tuner and metronome. But you can augment this with IK’s UltraTuner, the most precise tuner for iOS ever.
It’s accurate down to 1/100th of a cent (that’s 10 times more accurate than mechanical strobe tuners, the hardware “gold standard” equivalent). It also features two modes that let you switch depending on whether you need an extremely visible tuner for low-light stage use or a hyper-accurate pitch-over-time display for more complex tuning scenarios: It's great for tuning all kinds of instruments and even for vocal and instrument pitch training and practice.
Read more about UltraTuner here.
You can use Amplitube with Inter-App Audio to process and add effects to the sound of all your favorite mobile music creation apps. This means that Amplitube's realistic amplifiers, stompbox effects and other cool pieces of gear can be used with things like Apple GarageBand.
Amplitube is also fully compatible with Audiobus (a third party app, sold separately). This lets you route audio through up to three apps. With it, you can use Amplitube as an effects processor for an instrument or for audio coming from another app. You can also use Amplitube to process and/or record the audio coming from other apps in the chain.
AmpliTube is also a great tool for improving your chops. It has a slick song player section that lets you import songs and backing tracks. You get full control over these tracks, so you can speed them up or slow them down — all without changing pitch. It’s perfect for when you want to learn complex riffs and licks. It also features a “NO VOICE” mid-range cancelling feature that lets you turn off the lead vocal or guitar solo from an existing track so that you can step up and take center stage.
Use our line of iRig guitar and bass interfaces and floor controllers to connect your instrument to your iPhone, iPad, Mac and PC to play through and control AmpliTube.
Right from the start, you get 18 creative stompbox effects (Crusher, Dcomp, Electric Flanger, Feedback, Phazer 10, Swell, Delay, Fuzz, Overdrive, Wah, Envelope Filter, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Octave, Noise Filter, Volume and Distortion), 8 amplifiers (360Bass, British Copper 30 TB, Vintage Metal Lead, Clean, Crunch, Lead, Metal and Bass), 10 speaker cabinets and 2 microphones (Dynamic 57 and Condenser 87).
And did we mention that it sounds amazing? That's because every piece of gear in AmpliTube for iOS uses the same high-definition digital signal processor (DSP) as AmpliTube for Mac and PC. This DSP is so advanced that it's considered an industry benchmark.
This DSP also applies to the massive library of expansion content that you can use to augment your AmpliTube experience. There's an entire world of gear waiting for you inside AmpliTube, all you have to do is dive in. Its intuitive carousel system and ultra-realistic graphics make the whole "checking out new gear" experience as fun and effortless as walking into your local guitar store. The only difference is that you dont have to hear a bunch of jerks mangling their way through "Stairway to Heaven" while you browse. How's that for technological progress?
You will be amazed by the comprehensiveness of AmpliTube's expansion content. We've got a selection of droolworthy gear from some of the most respected brands in the business: MESA/Booogie®, Orange®, Fender®, ENGL®, Soldano®, Marshall® — you name it, we've probably got it.

Imagine yourself walking into a store containing every speaker cabinet from every amp you’ve ever played though. Now imagine swapping out the cabinets — even from the combos — without the use of stagehand labor or a chain saw. You’ve just entered the new AmpliTube “Cab Room” and you’re going to love what it can do for your tone.
First, you will notice that we’ve already mic’d the matching cabinet for you.
You can use that cabinet, after all it’s what the manufacturer wanted you to do, or you can select a completely different cab from a wide range of installed amps.
Want to hear what Slash’s Marshall head sounds like with a Fender Deluxe Reverb single 12”? No problem! Mix and match until your ears and tone pleasure center rejoice! The combinations of what you can do are endless.
AmpliTube 4 for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch
Walk into any recording studio and what do you see in front of the guitar cabinet? That’s right — microphones. Engineers and players are constantly tweaking mic selection and placement trying to find that “sweet spot” that really makes the difference between good sound and great sound.
Here’s where the magic comes in: In the new Cab room, we’ve replicated that process allowing you to play around with microphone placement in a three dimensional space, just like in the studio. You can freely move microphones from the dust cap to the edge of the speaker, and experiment with placing microphones at varying distances from the cabinet. You can mix the amount of sound from each mic with an intuitive slider, plus you can choose from 18* total available high-end studio mics.
Go ahead and mix it up. You’ll be amazed at the different sounds you can get with just a few tweaks of a mic stand, the right cab for the job and the perfect mic selection.
Get the speaker tight, then mic it right. That’s the name of the “sweet spot” platinum tone game.

You're on the go. You've got an idea. You want to get it down. But how? The answer is in AmpliTube's built-in recording features. AmpliTube comes with a single-track recorder that can be expanded in two big ways via in-app purchase.
The first is 8-track simultaneous audio recording with master effects.
The second is Studio, a DAW-style waveform-editing suite.
When you have both enabled, AmpliTube transforms your mobile device into a fully mobile professional recording studio that has everything you need to make complete music productions while on the go.
The AmpliTube recorder provides you with up to 8 channels of simultaneous audio recording which means you can plug in your iRig Pro Duo or other class compliant multi-channel USB audio interface and record a duo or your whole band without leaving AmpliTube.
Touching the “Mixer” button in the bottom control bar accesses the Recorder/Mixer section. There’s a pre-roll feature that lets you set two measures of count-in before you start recording so you can lock onto the tempo and nail your part right from the downbeat. The recorder offers 8 available tracks for recording and a bounce feature for freeing up tracks as you need them.
Another one of AmpliTube's useful features is "effects freeze." It simplifies the application of effects on individual tracks. AmpliTube remembers the signal chain setup per track so you can go back at any time and try a different set of effects on your tracks, just like you would when using a DAW with plug-ins on your Mac or PC. Pretty slick, right?
The Mixer section gives you everything you need for professional audio production. Each track has:
Want to add some polish to your mix? The Master Effects section has been designed to give you everything you need to add that extra punch to your finished works. This section is accessed by touching the "Mast FX" button. There you'll find the Send 1 and Send 2 effects processors.
Each of these allows you to choose from 3 levels of Reverb, 2 levels of Chorus and 3 levels of Delay. Use the “Adjust” button to fine tune the time and depth of the chosen effect’s main parameter. You can also control just how much of the effect shows up in the mix by using the Input, Mix and Output knobs.
Finally, what would a master effects section be without an equalizer? AmpliTube gives you a 3-band parametric EQ that's been specially made to help you bring out the sweetness of your overall mix. Take that, run it through the included compressor for tightness and gain control, and you'll have a finished product that's ready to be heard by your fans.
AmpliTube also has a powerful editing tool: AmpliTube Studio. Its DAW-style interface will be very familair to recording veterans and very intuitive for recording novices. Studio brings precise waveform editing and audio region manipulation to the mobile world. It's an easy, visual way of arranging while on the go that's remeniscent of some of the most powerful desktop music creation tools.
Touching the “STUDIO” button in the bottom control bar accesses AmpliTube Studio. It provides access to a range of features that have been designed to help you achieve sonic perfection. Using it is easy, it's split in two display regions on the screen: The Track Control section is on the left and the waveform timeline grid is on the right. With both in front of you, you also have access to the full signal chain plus effects, recording tools, mixing functions and more.
The Track Control section houses the controls you need to adjust and tweak the sound on individual tracks. Touch any waveform display on the right — or empty space or track number — to access the individual controls for that track on the left. Knowing where you are at any given time is simple: The number in the upper left hand corner indicates the currently selected track.
You can adjust how much of the track’s signal goes to the master effects section by using the “SEND 1” and “SEND 2” knobs. The master effects section can be accessed by touching the "MASTER" button (this is great for fine tuning). In addition, we've also included a Track EQ section below the Master button that let lets you fine-tune the EQ on each individual track, just like on a professional mixing console.
In addition to these crucial features, you also get a level meter, a peak light, a quick FX Edit button, pan control and a console-style fader for fine volume adjustment on each track.
At the core of the studio module is the waveform display section. This is where most of your audio editing will be done. From this section, you can select audio material by touching on the waveform display. This then lets you perform multiple types of edits with ease: cut, copy, copy track, paste, delete region, delete track, normalize volume or split at playhead.
Tap the waveform you want to edit to gain access to the full range of editing commands. These functions provide all the basic tools you need for working with audio regions. You can even move audio forwards and backwards in the timeline by dragging the waveform around on the screen.
AmpliTube also has a few other great tools destined to make your audio life easier: Fade In, Fade Out and Crop. Creating a fade is as simple as selecting the region you want to fade, and then dragging the triangle in the top left corner right to create a fade-in. The farther from the beginning of the region you drag the triangle, the longer the fade-in becomes. Pretty easy. Creating a fade-out is done the same way, only go to the upper right corner of the audio region and drag the triangle to the left.
Cropping an audio region is done in a similar fashion. Grab the triangle at the bottom of the region (either left or right, depending on where you want it cropped), and then move it either direction to crop.
Navigation in Studio is done with both multi-touch and simple gestures. You can zoom in and out of a region by pinching in or out with two fingers on the screen. Alternatively, to get more screen real estate, you can hide the Track Control section by swiping left on the black handle just to the left of the track 4 indicator number.
At the top of the screen is the navigation bar, and it serves three handy functions: First, it is divided into bars, beats and divisions so you have a reference point in the composition. As you zoom in (by pinching out with two fingers), you’ll notice more gridlines showing up. These are handy for precisely aligning audio material with rhythms and beats.
Second, you can define loop start and end points by dragging a finger from left to right. You’ll notice a green area shows up when you do this. Drag the left triangle to the beginning of your desired loop and the right triangle to the end. Once defined, double tap on the green area to activate it. Then hit play on the transport to begin playback of the loop. The third feature is creating a “punch in” recording area. Drag your finger from right to left in the navigation bar and you'll create a red “Punch in” section. Adjust the start and end points with the triangle handles, and then activate it with a double-tap. You can de-activate loop and punch in regions by double-tapping again.
Just south of the Navigation bar is the “Loop Drummer” track. If you’ve programmed a killer beat using the built-in Loop Drummer feature, it will show up in this track. You can edit your drum sequence in this track by touching and dragging the drum parts around. You can also add more drum parts to the sequence by touching the “DRUMS” button in the bottom nav bar. Then touch and drag out the chosen drum sectio to the desired position in the track. A “double-tap” on a drum part will duplicate it to the right of the original. This makes it super easy to create awesome, professional-sounding rhythm tracks in a snap.
Other individual track features include the ability to solo, mute, record enable and activate the AmpliTube signal chain on a track. You can record audio material directly to a track in the Studio view by using the “PLAY”, “RECORD”, “REWIND” and metronome transport controls at the bottom of the screen. There’s also a “GRID” button that turns “grid-snapping” on and off, plus “UNDO” and “REDO” commands for the human in us all.
Inside AmpliTube, you'll find a powerful loop-based rhythm module called Loop Drummer that lets you quickly create great sounding drum tracks.
Loop Drummer can play on its own or act as the drum section for AmpliTube's built-in recorder. It automatically syncs to the recorder, so when you hit play or record, Loop Drummer plays along in perfect time. But Loop Drummer offers way more than just loops that play over and over, its unique Remix feature intelligently generates full-length drum parts with intros, beats, fills and endings. Or, if you prefer, you can also use Loop Drummer to build your own patterns. It’s even got its own mix window.
Loop Drummer comes with a collection of rock loops, but you can expand it easily and inexpensively via in-app purchase. We offer Style Packs that contain 64 loops each, and give you eight different song-construction kits based around a core drumbeat. For each you get all the song parts you’ll need to put an awesome, and full-length drum track together.
The Style Packs come in all major genres including Rock, Blues, Country, Pop, Funk, Punk, Metal, Electro, Jazz, Reggae and more. You can buy them individually or purchase them in pre-selected groups. All told, there are over 1000 loops in the Loop Drummer collection!
Press the Remix button and Loop Drummer will instantly construct a full drum track for you just like a producer would. Each time you press this button, you'll get a different variation. It's a great feature that offers an endless source of inspiration that will take your jam, practice and composition sessions to the next level.
And if you're a "hands-on" kind of musician, don't worry. You can also build drum tracks yourself by auditioning loops in Loop Drummer's browser. Just drag and drop the loops you like onto the timeline. If you want to tweak a part, it's easy. You can your loops, add crashes, tap in new tempos and a whole lot more — it's all just a touch away.
One of the most impressive features about Loop Drummer is how it works in tandem with AmpliTube’s recorder. Hit play or record on the recorder, and Loop Drummer will plays along in perfect sync. And if you have the multitrack option for the recorder (available as an in-app purchase), you'll have all the tools you need to put together entire productions, including authentic-sounding drum parts.
Another great thing: Loop Drummer’s audio doesn’t take up any tracks on the recorder. It has its own separate audio channel that's combined automatically with the recorder’s output. To adjust the drum level in the mix, all you have to do is adjust Loop Drummer's volume control.
You can also use your favorite Loop Drummer arrangements in other applications. It's easy: Just press the Export button in Mix Mode to bring up the "Export Sequence" screen. This lets you send you send your sequence to the iOS Clipboard or to the File Sharing app folder (for iTunes File Sharing with your computer).
Loop Drummer’s interface is super simple. Choose a Style and Groove by pressing the arrows near the top and bottom of the screen respectively. Choose loops from the Ring Browser — it’s the circle in the middle of the window with the snare drum in it.
The button outside the ring with the speaker icon is the Preview button. Press it. When it lights, it's activated. Now press any loop in the Ring Browser and it will play.
The Timeline at the bottom of the window is where the loops in the drum sequence go. If you're using the Remix feature, the arrangement will show up there after you press the Remix button (the circular arrows on the upper right of the screen). If you're building the arrangement manually, drag a loop from the browser into the timeline. It will now be a part of your arrangement.
To switch the arrangement of your loops just press, hold and drag. You can also add crashes on the downbeat by highlighting a chosen loop on the timeline. You can set the overall tempo by tapping the tempo button (or you can just enter a value if you want to be precise).
Press the Mix button to access the circular volume control. This also adjusts Loop Drummer’s tempo and functions as a reverb send.
Looper is one of the many useful tools available as an add-on for AmpliTube. As its name suggests, it gives you a quick and easy way to create up to 4 synced audio loops. Created a looped-up masterpiece? Looper lets you easily save and export your work. It's the perfect sketchpad for new ideas; it's intuitive interface that's designed for experimentation and self-accompaniment will inspire you to think in an entirely new (and loopy) musical way. Record melodic loops, leads, percussive riffs, vocals, chord progressions and more, all at the touch of a button.
Using Looper is easy. Just set your preferred BPM and enable the metronome feature. Then tap the "rec" icon on the first loop button. From there it's 4, 3, 2, 1, go! Loop 1 will begin recording automatically, and it wont stop recording until you tap on the button again.
And no matter when you tap to end your loop, your loops will always sound good because each loop is quantized to the nearest quarter note. Once closed, Loop 1 will continue to play, setting the stage for you to repeat the process with loops 2 through 4. Just tap the "rec" icon on the second loop to start recording the next layer, and so on. The length of your first loop determines the length of all the loops the follow. Once you've captured your audio, you can mute and un-mute individual loops by simply tapping on the loop you want to silence with your finger. It's really that easy!
Want to get tricky while performing live with your loops? That's also a piece of cake: Looper can also be controlled via iRig Stomp I/O and iRig BlueBoard (or any MIDI controller).
That means you can assign each of Looper's loop buttons to a corresponding physical button on a pedal board.
Now you can trigger loops from the floor, leaving your hands for more creative things, like playing your guitar.
Nearly 20 years ago, AmpliTube pioneered single component modeling technology, and was the first company to go beyond the “black-box modeling” approach of electronics. Today, IK Multimedia continues to lead the pack when it comes to model accuracy of all the elements in the complete signal chain with innovative solutions and ultra-accuracy that no other brand can match.
Who do the top manufacturers in the industry trust to make ultra-accurate models of their gear? That’s right, IK Multimedia and AmpliTube. But don’t just take our word for it when we say we offer the best-sounding, most accurate software modeling in the industry. Check out our partner roster of 18 (and growing) of the world’s best amplifier and effects pedal manufacturers who rely on IK Multimedia for accurate digital reproductions of their products. When Fender®, MESA/Boogie®, Orange®, Soldano®, Ampeg®, ENGL® and many more decided to put their name on virtual models of their gear, they chose the best — AmpliTube.
With nearly 300 individual gear models available, AmpliTube offers more tonal variety than anything else on the market. We have modeled almost every amp and effect circuit ever produced since the birth of electric guitar and effects pedals. No matter what type of tone you are aiming for, only AmpliTube has the right gear for it.
Our approach to creating hyper-realistic models of gear is firmly rooted in the best “Made in Italy” craftsmanship tradition. We don’t simply “look at schematics” and listen to sound samples like other companies. Not only do we acquire the real units by painstakingly searching for the “best specimen of its kind,” but we always approach any new piece of gear as a unique modeling project. From thorough and detailed analysis of the circuit using the most advanced modeling algorithms to hours of A/B sound testing and dedicated audio engineering craftsmanship, our process delivers the “true to the original” best possible sound for your projects.
