Captain Custerdome's Review of Amplitube Cs For IpadReviewed on 12/27/17 6:25 PM
I’ve used AmpliTube Mac for a long time as well as on iOS. With proper tweaking, it does a good job. My main gripe now is that the audio output does not recognize AirPods as an audio device, which could greatly enhance the usability of this app. Secondly, there are too many add-ons one must buy. There should be an all-inclusive bundle that isn’t overpriced, considering we are talking about simulation of real gear on a device that typically has an inferior audio path compared to a pro recording studio.

After trying a number of amp modelers for iOS I cannot recommend buying Amplitube 4. I tried it with a Strat and an SG and the tones were thin, brittle, and fake sounding when compared to my current favorite BIAS amps. I didn't think the IK tones were that much better than GarageBand. After buying Amplitube the customer is immediately presented with the fact that nothing works and further purchases are needed. Bordering on fraud in my personal opinion.

Realistic amp models. Requires in app purchases for most amps and effects. I know in app purchses annoy people, but the cost of the real gear would be much more. Get IRIG Hd2 guitar interface ($99) and get the IOS AND desktop versions free (thats over 150 dollars in software).

Once I selected the almost-clean preset, the fuzz went away, but even gain and volume at 10, the volume is really low. The other knobs make no discernible difference. Routing the output into garageband gives only screeching feedback, which was the most disappointing thing. Wish I had read these reviews before I bought th iRig!

Sounds like crap. The app is junk and so is the iRig 2. The store is closed or I would bring it back tonight. What a waste of my time and money.

IK Multimedia products should be avoided like the plague unless you enjoy wasting money on incredibly buggy software that gets worse with each update. Oddly, this used to work on my iPad 1 but is very noisy and has lame tone.

I am a new bass player and bought an iRig2 from guitar center. I figured it was a great way to get started with an "amp" without breaking the bank. It would also give me a way to figure out what I like from an amp before I purchase one. The iRig2 works great but I’m disappointed in the AmpliTube app. There is only one bass amp that comes with the version, that comes with the product. I have the volume turned all the way up on my iPad and in the app and I can barely hear it. My Bose headphones work just fine. I don’t need it ear piercing but I can hear my strings just as loud as the sound coming from the app. I have to crank the gain up to get more volume. I do have the noise filter pedal activated and all the way up. I can’t get a good, clean bass tone. I tried the other guitar amps in the app "just to see." Those get a lot louder but of course, there’s lot of distortion. I know that there are in app purchases and yes, nothing can ultimately take the place of a real amplifier. This is a mediocre, on-the-run choice. But this is highly disappointing. The app needs at LEAST one more bass amp if I’m going to purchase a product. The app needs to get louder for bass players. The app needs to have something to provide a good, clean sound. Perhaps something could be made that is geared towards bass players. I will not buy a product that has AmpliTube as the app choice again. I will be looking at other apps for my iPad. If I’m going to have to make an in-app purchase to get something that’s even decent, why would I do that when I can just buy an amp? If you play electric guitar this is a pretty neat option. It’s less than decent for bass players.

I added the 5th star from 4 after getting back into tracking. I need to get used to the varying degrees of gain staging again. It's been awhile since I've used amplitube and it seems like the signal is either really hot or not hot enough, especially if I'm trying to record any clean tones. Seems like that's because there's some discrepancy between levels at all stages of the signal path that don't necessarily end up at the same levels that they initially sounded like. With an initial line in, then an amp level, then your effects that can drastically effect your levels, the track volume level, and the post effects effects level (without compression I lose lots of volume here) there's a lot of staging. But that's just something to get used to and I haven't even checked the forums to see what might be protocol. Bottom line is I prefer the UI over any other ios multitracking app and the effects sound much more like effects .. they can get noisy, but that's not a big deal either. (I'm a big fan of using the looping feature for accidental tracks also) Thanks again for getting the cloud iap thing worked out. That's what I was trying to do last time I used the app, but it sounds like any and all bugs have been squished. ITS ALL GRAVY. THANK YOU AMPLITUBE! As promised the 5th star.
