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.
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Not dummy proof in any way shape or form.
There are many steps before you can properly get this thing to work and the customer service is average.
The effects themselves are excellent but I will never purchase this again---- ever.
GUITAR RIG was significantly easier and very very user friendly.
Sorry, but if you have to pull your hair out to get something to work, it's not designed right.

Fun for a minute. Really beautiful plug-in.
Couldn't trim or streamline any project to a level where Amplitube would be practical, though. Read more
