AmpliTube for iPad by IK Multimedia gives you amazing guitar amps and FX, and when combined with the $39.99 iRig plug interface adapter, becomes the ultimate mobile guitar and bass MultiFX system that fits right in your backpack. Your new mobile rig gives you up to four simultaneous stomp box effects -- the iPad is capable of doing one more than the iPhone and iPod touch, an amplifier, plus speaker cabinet and a microphone. AmpliTube for iPad includes stomps for delay, fuzz, overdrive, wah, envelope filter, chorus, flanger, phazer, octave, noise filter + distortion, powered by a clean, crunch, lead, metal, or bass amp. Additionally, choose amongst five cabinet and either a dynamic or condenser microphone. AmpliTube FREE for iPad offers the main delay, noise filter + distortion stomp box effects, a lead amp, and one speaker cabinet. You can add additional amps, stomp boxes, and cabinets such as an envelope filter, clean amp, bass amp, overdrive, and more via in-app purchase. All versions have a built-in chromatic digital tuner and a metronome to offer an increased level of accuracy, especially in noisy environments, due to the fact that your instrument is plugged directly into your iDevice. Import and play along with your own songs or backing tracks with real time effects plus the ability to create, save and recall up to thirty-six presets on the fly. You can even try AmpliTube for iPad’s features without a guitar by using the built-in demo section. Choose one of the eight guitar audio riffs, click play, and go try some different amps and sound-FX.
