AmpliTube Metal is THE definitive collection of gear for metal players. It features an insane number of the high-gain dream machines that define the raw power, tone and emotion that is Metal, and a mind-blowing collection of rare vintage and modern stompboxes. From the very first iterations of distorted sound to the ultra-modern triple rectifier multi stage cascading gain structures, you'll find the sound you've been looking for in AmpliTube Metal.
Not only is the AmpliTube Metal collection the ultimate source for metal tones… it’s also perfect for a multitude of tones ranging from sparkling clean with tons of headroom to extreme scooped distorted crunch that inspired a decade of hits. You get 48 mind-numbing models ranging from modern and vintage high-gain amps and cabinets to classic stompboxes and luscious rack effects — all designed to bring out the inner shredder in you.
AmpliTube Metal offers an ultra-realistic software recreation of 13 stomp boxes, 5 classic and modern amp models, 5 cabinets, 3 mics, and 3 rack FX for a complete arsenal of high-gain sonic exuberance from the late '70s through today. It features extremely rare and collectible models of metal stomp boxes, amp heads and cabinets, from the legendary, hard-to-find Japanese originals to classic British and American essentials, including models based on the ProCo RAT, Electro-Harmonix® Big Muff Pi, Digitech® Whammy™, several vintage BOSS® effects, Randall® Warhead, Peavey® 5150™, Mesa/Boogie® Triple Rectifier®, and other great models of metal gear.
The entire AmpliTube Metal chain can be easily saved, organized and recalled through the advanced built-in preset browser. Presets can be tagged and stored using a series of searchable, user defined keywords and attributes.
