Amplitube is an extremely complex audio modelling software that contains an impressive amount of effects and simulations aimed at providing state-of-the-art accuracy in the making of guitar and bass tones.
The product has been on the market for some time, but has never failed to comply with user needs thanks to the patented technologies that have been improved over time to enhance the audio production process inside homes and even studios.
Much like any other respectable audio modeler, Amplitube relies on a sophisticated architecture that allows it to be installed in the form of a standalone application, as well as a VST, AAX or RTAS plugin. Both approaches provide a high level of usability reflected in a professional and appealing environment that is a treat to look at and experiment with.
Amplitube can be a game changer for live performances, due to its fast preset switching that allows you to shift the sound to a new direction seamlessly. Used as a plugin, it can provide a vast array of effects oriented towards vintage and modern sounds, able to work with synthesizers and instruments, just as well.
Provided that you connected an instrument such as a guitar or bass to the computer, Amplitube can work as a tone machine, providing out-of-the-box configurations for both live and studio performances with the possibility to enable stereo mode.
With the aid of the preset browser, you will be able to store an unlimited number of customized audio patterns, which can be restored into the application at any time. Moreover, the XChange service allows you to share presets with other users of the Amplitube community.
Bottom line, Amplitube is a versatile audio processor that can be used both as a plugin and as a standalone program. The advantage of the latter is the built-in recorder that can capture performances for later use.
