Want to turn your device 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.

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

AmpliTube gives you 7 stompbox effects, 3 amplifiers, 3 speaker cabinets and 2 mics, a free Loop Drummer Rock groove pack and a 2-track recorder. You can expand this selection via a massive library of over 100 pieces of gear that includes amps and stompboxes from the world’s best brands like Fender™, Soldano®, Ampeg®, ENGL®, Orange®, T-Rex® and many more.

Thanks to AmpliTube's Cab Room, you will actually feel like you are in your own professional recording studio. Mic your cabinets in full 3D in a beautifully rendered virtual studio environment with 2 iconic guitar mics (expandable to 16 mic models available via in-app purchase).

Get creative with loops in AmpliTube via its Super Looper, which is available through in-app purchase. It makes it easy to record, play back, adjust levels and play along with up to 4 loops.  Loops are easy to set and trigger, with external control for live use.

Need a drummer? Use the built-in Loop Drummer system to jam to killer drum tracks. Use AmpliTube’s streamlined built-in 8-track recorder and DAW-style studio (available via in-app purchase) to record, edit, tweak and share your songs via SoundCloud, file sharing or email.

Ready to get out of the studio? AmpliTube’s new Live Mode offers an optimized GUI designed specifically for live use. See your entire rig at a glance, with all the settings and controls you need displayed in an easy-to-read format designed for the stage.

And control your virtual rig just as easily as you would a traditional multiFX pedal with new iRig Stomp I/O integration, so you can change presets, trigger FX, loops and more all right from your feet. Or go wireless with iRig Blueboard, a wireless Bluetooth controller for basic control on the go.

Whether it’s at home, in the studio or on stage, AmpliTube is the dream rig you’ve always wanted, in a device that’s always with you!

No sound and nothing works, not just plug in and play

Developer Response

Thanks for your review. No sound could be caused by a few different factors. A quick suggestion to start fresh would be to create a new project in the app, as this resets a number of possibilities. Reconnect your interface and try again! If you have troubles, please reach out to our Support team here:


Great idea but not convinced enough


Could have been great but get's overly concerned with making money. It offers nice features and a really plush interface which looks great on my iPad, but then comes the sting. You can buy individual effects pedals and amps or buy multi-pack deals, which are not too badly priced but they certainly add up. Then you can't use them on other devices, literally if you want to play with your iPhone, iPod-Touch or Mac-book version then you need to cough up for them a second, third and fourth time. Very disappointing since Garage band offers similar virtual effects and amp emulators for a fraction of the cost (free with your mac-book of course) and if you are going to pay over the odds you may as well buy Logic and have the whole shebang. A great idea ruined by greed basically. Not worth investing in the full paid version until they sort out the portability!

Great sounds


Being a novice guitar player, I thought I would try this after finding the IRig guitar in an electronic store. My setup consists of a Tanglewood Evolution Electro Acoustic Guitar and Marshal acoustic amp. I am absolutely sold on the sounds and experimentation it offers. Noise and feedback are not an issue as these are controllable and some of the effects are simply amazing especially the Fender pack add in. Add the 8 track recorder add in and you have a great all round effects, drum looper and recorder for a fraction of the cost - not counting the cost of an iPad. Absolutely brilliant, it can even make me sound good.
