New Update Deems Ampkit Inoperable

I used to love ampkit, until the last update. Now it crashes any time I want to make any adjustments to anything! Or it becomes completely unresponsive. It is now worthless and I can’t do a single thing without the app freezing up. There’s also this weird bug where the amp appears to move/“wobble”, for lack of a better term. Oh, and if you do get lucky enough to make any adjustment whatsoever, it won’t register for at least 5-6 seconds.

Seriously, Agile Partners? Think I’ll finally bite the bullet and get Positive Grid. Don’t bother until they fix these bugs.


None of the presets working right.
Ton’s of stupid presest, wasted 40 minutes to see if there is single decent one so I can play - NO HOP
My ears poped out by the time I get to the 5th set up. Constantly on the volume - everything feeds back!
DELAY - you hear what you played later. This is a joke!


Used to love this app, but ever since this past update nothing is working. None of the amps or pedals are visible anymore and i cannot get anything to work other than a dry guitar signal. Very frustrating.
