> Mishaps with hilariously short patch cables aside (see previous post), after a bit of soldering, that's my new live rig complete, and it's even more compact than it was before if that's at all possible! For the tech nerds, you're looking at a Galien Kruger MB200 200 watt amp (with built in DI so we can run pre-volume/pre-EQ signal straight to FOH), a Shure GLXD4 wireless, IK Multimedia iRig HD2 audio interface and Blueboard Bluetooth control pedal, and a 6th gen iPod Touch running Amplitube 4. Sounds FUCKING MASSIVE. I'll be giving it a good belting before I drag it out on the road just to be sure it'll hold up on a real stage but everything points to it being amazing. Certainly blows your hair back when you stand in front of it, if nothing else! HAHA! >more
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.
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.
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.
I use AmpliTube 4 as part of my live rig, and it works really well if you've got an audio interface that can work at very low latency without affecting quality, it's really good for getting my songs to have all their delays perfectly in time.
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.
This ampsim is pretty cool if you want to find your own guitar tone they have lots of cool stuff you can use I love the metal amps and pedals overall a pretty cool software check it out!!!
