Amazing how far we've come


It's strange how I came across this. I used to play guitar a lot but four or so years ago I set it aside and started to focus on other things. A few days ago at time of me writing this I was looking around various shops and I found the Irig attachment and saw what it was for. I didn't think much of it at the time but when I got home it popped into my mind and I remembered how much fun I used to have playing guitar and how it would be cool to have all those amps and effects with me whenever I wanted them so I went back to the store the next day and purchased it and I'm completely away. I was a bit sceptical at first because I was wondering how an app will be able to replicate the real thing but it does. Seriously the sound is amazing and I'm using a standard strat by encore so i can't imagine what it would be like to have a fender strat or les paul going through this thing. I'm gonna save up to get a les paul because that is my dream guitar but yeah if you are on a budget like me or just want to have something to practice or jam with then you cannot go wrong with this app.

its ok but id save up and get real thing still!!!


I think its ok for a little app but tbh im gutted ive wasted almost £40 on it with the irig and app! and the biggest turn off for me was the fact that you get promised this and that and when you pay the full app price you get a few amps, a few pedal effects, one blimmin track recorder so unless you do covers to backing tracks could never record a full song of your own you have to even register and pay more for the master editor to play with ur song, and unless your ipod can access internet you cant do it!!

the most dissapointment tho was the sound i know its a lil app and on an ipod but it isnt cheap cheap!! i got some proper guitar amp headphones which can withstand my marshall 50watt but this is so crackly and fuzzy and after ive countlessly tried messing around with all the knobs and dials (i have used ipod earphones too still bad)

if youre buying it hoping to replace floor pedals its a non go-er and for recording well i cant as my ipod touch isnt on the web, its ok only if your away from home and carry a guitar, lead, ipod, and irig with u to have a away from home jam to urself but who takes that around?? lol im dissapointed tbh!!! buy boss pedals or a zoom multi effects!!! hope it helps



Excellent amp fx simulator with an intuitive interface. I'm using this with the Ampkit Link interface which is a superior piece of kit to IK Multimedia's hardware , iRig. I also have the free version of Ampkit but chose Amplitube mainly because of the low latency option and the easier method of saving and switching between presets. IK Multimedia's experience in DSP processing was a winner too.

One missing feature, which is in Ampkit , would be a count in for the recorder and a more customizable metronome. More crucially both apps could do with some way of using a foot pedal to switch between presets or control fx parameters ; making live use a reality. There are several apps out there which use Midi Mobilizer to receive program changes so this could be made possible now the SDK is available.

I have had none of the feedback / noise issues or crashes reported here. Top marks to IK for a great app. Crank it up and kick out the jams !.
