Product Description

Take a good look at your computer... no seriously, look hard. How many guitar amps do you think could fit inside (and not 22 Calibers or anything, we're talking full-sized amps here). Probably not even one, but no way could you get 31 amps and 46 cabs in there... unless you got IK Multimedia's Amplitube 3, that is. Oh yeah, this thing is totally packed - over 160 models of all the guitar gear you wish you had, ready for standalone shredding or injection straight into your favorite DAW. And a pretty good chunk of this gear is stuff you've never seen before in and previous version of Amplitube. IK Multimedia really kicked it up a notch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really? October 11, 2010
A guitar/bass amp modeling software product with usable tones...? Seriously?

Yup.

I've used Line6, Studio Devil, and some other unmentionables over the past few years and I just could not accept them as serious tools. Useful for practicing quietly at home in the late night hours? Sure...but when it came to using them for recording, forget it. Everything seemed off, from overall tone to playing dynamics. It was always obvious that you were using software. So for a long time, I just steered clear of these tools, convinced that it would take some long-term research and development to solve the many issues.

But I'm pleased to say that products like Amplitube are giving me hope. I am very impressed with their version 3 and the newer Amplitube Fender release. Someone really has their act together at IK Multimedia and shows a great understanding of how guitar sound is produced overall. Plugging in and finding quite convincing tones ranging from the sweetness of a stereo chorus Roland JC120 to the onslaught of a Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier with a distortion box out front always brings a smile. There are some less-than-inspiring presets, but these may suit some ears more than mine.

However, the real power is in Amplitube's flexibility. You can take any preset that's in the neighborhood of what you're looking for and then tweak it until you're happy. Everything from stomp boxes to the amp face dials to rack effects and microphone placement, it's all there. You can even tell it which mics (e.g., Shure SM57, etc...) to use, where to place them relative to the speaker, how far you want them from the front of the cabinet, and what type of room (e.g., small studio, hall, etc...) to use. The differences are sometimes subtle, but everything adds up to an overall sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best amp tones! March 23, 2010
By DDD
If you want amp simulation that sounds like the real amp, you'd be crazy not to buy this. I own amp simulators from Boss and Line 6. While they sound good, they sound like an imitation of what you hear on a recording. Amp 3 literally sounds like I'm sitting right in front of the actual amps! SO much bigger, fuller, and more present. With 51 stomp-boxes and 17 racks Amp 3 has got all the effects. You can use them in any combination, in any order, and move them back and forth with ease - Unlike my other simulators.

The only slight "ding" is the software uses a lot of CPU power. The good news is: going from the "Hi" mode to the power saving "Eco" mode cuts the power usage by about 2/3. And listening with a pair of $160 headphones, I can't hear the difference! So, I tweak my amp settings in Eco mode, then switch to Hi and freeze the track. A small inconvenience for such great tone.

Bottom line: Amplitube 3 and Amplitube Fender should be at the top of every guitarist's list for plug-in amp simulators. (Yes, it's worth owning both). I'm going to spread the word. I really wish I knew about Amplitube before I bought those other amp simulations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, a must have for any musician. February 21, 2012
I've been playing guitar for about 10 years, and I have pretty opposite genre's I focus on, heavy metal and blues. I've purchased tons of stomp box pedals, multi-digital effects pedals, all of which were ok but just had *something* missing. I went to a friends and heard the most amazing smooth tone, and noticed he was plugged directly into his Fender amp, no boxes, nothing. So I started looking towards something other than my simple 1x12 or 2x10 combo amps I'd been purchasing, and the prices were incredibly high. Also the amps I liked for heavy metal did not produce the blues tones I wanted; same for the blues amps, they lacked the definition and clarity when it came to adding a lot of gain.

Being a new parent and someone who records all their own instruments and music in my home studio, I figured 1) I won't have money for all the gear I want/need to get the tones I envision, 2) I won't be able to play it since downstairs isn't sound proofed and we have a toddler who takes naps; This is where Amplitube3 stepped in. I auditioned several amp/guitar simulators and did a TON of research before purchasing. I can honestly say none even came close to the sound quality and selection offered by Amplitube3. The standard package has so much gear that you can literally get any tone you would ever want, for nearly any genre. If you need something more specific, they offer Amplitube Fender and Amplitube Jimi Hendrix; if you've never heard these head on over to IK's site, select the product and watch the video demonstrations, the sounds they reproduce are spot on.

I've used IK's T-Racks3 Mastering software previously, so thankfully the interface was very easy to pick up on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Pakage October 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
I've been very happy with the product. The only thing I would change if I could would be the browser. It would be helpful if it was noted that the patches were included in the AmpliTube 3 package, or if they were after market.
