Want to turn your iPhone or iPod touch into the ultimate mobile guitar and bass tone studio? AmpliTube puts the power in your hands with a massive collection of virtual gear that you can use to practice, play and record with world-class tone anytime and everywhere.

Build your own guitar or bass rig with up to 6 stompbox FX, an amplifier and speaker cabinet w/Mic — you can even drag and drop your stomps to sit before or after your amplifier (4 slots pre and 2 slots post).

Just plug your instrument into your iPhone or iPod touch with one of IK's instrument interfaces (like iRig 2 or iRig HD), and get ready to be blown away.

You'll be absolutely floored by the sound quality. AmpliTube now uses the same tone technology as the acclaimed AmpliTube 3 Custom Shop for OS X and PC. You'll hear the difference and understand why AmpliTube is an essential for so many professional musicians and recording studios.

Customer Reviews

Rip off, no good, don't buy

I do not recommend this. If anything, buy AmpliTube 4 (or download the hacked torrent version for free). It's far better, AT4 Jimi Hendrix is spot on. The iOS Jimi is so far off it's not even funny. If you tweak it, you can get close, but still off. Another reason for the low score is them cheating me out of money. I had bough separate packs (Jimi, Fender, Orange) and waited to get my iRig HD2 because it gives you a serial for free AmpliTube on iOS. The registration worked for my computer, but not my iPhone, so, no free upgrade (that they promised, bad service indeed). So, I bought the $50 all in pack to get everything (or so I thought). No Mesa Boogie and no tons of pedals, or mics, or loopers...... So I paid $50 when I could have just paid $20 to upgrade two more packs. No refunds, no freebies for ripping me off. I will no longer recommend this to others, but I do recommend downloading AmpliTube 4 for free as a cracked torrent. Have a nice day!

Good for jamming

There you go, this app is great if you just want to make some loops and play along. Most of the in app purchases are fair, and don't cost too much.

The problem is the recorder, that thing is a piece of garbage. I say this because it isn't just a nice simple recorder which allows you to record songs. Instead it's a freaking monster. You only get one channel to work with and you aren't allowed to easily use your loopers while recording! That thing took 20$ from me.

If you want to jam it is a good app. If you want to record go find a microphone.

They cheat you and charge you again

If you upgrade to Amplitube full you have to purchase all the pedals again that you paid for in Amplitube Free. They don't tell you until you have already paid for the upgrade. Customer service told me to just buy it and tell apple to reimburse me but they charge the names of the bundles so that Apple cannot tell they are the same in app purchases. IK M makes good products but then cheats there own customers; it's company m.o. for hardware and software. I avoid them now.
