it's a good product but I never use it. I think for some people it could be perfect, but to my ears the tones sound a bit too fake. granted, it's still great for practice because of the variety, but it's not what I would use for recording.Version: IK Multimedia AmpliTube 4

Been using since V3
When I first tried Amplitube (version 2) I walked away unimpressed when comparing it to Peavey's Revalver (3) software. All of the good faith Peavey had built was dashed with Revalver IV, as the ability to pair preamps with different power amps was removed. I began to search for something else to get me where I wanted, and noticed Amplitube had moved to an À la carte format. I loaded it up locked in a tone, and deleted Revalver after about an hour. Solid heavy tones, shimmering cleans, and the added bonus of the Fender, Hendrix and Slash (and others) licenses on top of the ability to test any À la carte offering for three days before buying makes this my primary way to practice at home, where the 2x12 would lead to some angry neighbors.
Regarding version 4: Still does just about everything I could want, especially after upgrading to Max. Dropped a star due to some questionable midi decisions (0out=1in, no tap tempo and some general weirdness when using certain foot controllers), but overall I love it as much as I did when I stopped using Peavey's Revalver software after they stopped letting you pair seperate preamps and poweramps (I guess it isn't even owned by Peavey anymore). The built in looper and multitrack recorder are just icing on the cake.Version: IK Multimedia AmpliTube 4
The Virtual Studio has come of Age.
Software is easy to use but will take time to explore all the options.
I purchased iRig UA was released but didn't care for the app as a portable headphone app that much the amps seemed... meh. I am on an extended stay out of town and wanted to do some recording. The cheapest and low footprint option was Amplitube. I had to buy it because I was a dumbass and covered up the serial # on the UA with Velcro and could have received the basic Amplitube for free.
First impression is WOW!!! I don’t seem to miss my Blackstar amp as much. The amps are realistic and have the sponginess and sag I was missing from the amps in the Amplitube Android App. Then again the Android app was free so you get what you pay for. On the other hand Amplitube 4 well, I didn't expect tube like sound from a program; IMO lifelike and realistic.
The effects are usable and pretty good as well. The sound is much better than any Line 6 product I have used or owned and for a lot less money too.
Interface is impressive from setting up effects loops and effects chain, (Amp options, Rack effects, Speakers, Cabinets, and Mike options).
The Looper or Recording options are great but, haven’t used it much yet….the reason I acquired this. I am having too much fun playing around with the amps. My impression is this is great for the bedroom musician or someone that doesn't have space for much gear to the budget recording studio or a traveling person like myself. Everyone from all walks will like it if not love it. Great substitute for the real thing as long it is not live on stage.Version: IK Multimedia AmpliTube 4
Great for bedroom studios.
Although it can take some tinkering with the more distorted sounds. I think it's great in providing a variety of sounds. It was used for the first two tracks on GH1. For jams and shit I normally use the Orange Rockerverb MkII and generally shift between the hum-cancelling position on the neck and middle or I'll mix the humbucker with the middle pickup if I want more bass to my humbucker sound.Version: IK Multimedia AmpliTube 4
Analog vs Digital
Extremely versatile! Sounds good, but different than recording a tube amp, which gives a more open sound.
Great for trying out what real amps you might like and all the endless options. I tried the next version of this with Mesa Boogie's Mark III and it sounded amazing. By the time Amplitube 5 comes out, it might be better than the real thing, who knows?
Amplitube should maybe get more credit for being close to as good as a $30,000 recording studio for $300. But at the same time, professional musicians shouldn't substitute it for a real studio anytime soon.Version: IK Multimedia AmpliTube 3
Best at what it does, I'd say
We used amplitube almost exclusively on the first Foxes Have Holes record, and quite a bit on the second one. I really like the fender models, though they take a bit of EQ'ing to get the brittleness tamed. I think where software emulation really shines is as a slight lift under a less than ideal live amp soundVersion: IK Multimedia AmpliTube 3
