Default Amplitube iRig for iPhone - I think this looks great

Has anyone seen the new Amplitube app for iPhone? The app is $19.99 for the full version (10 pedals, 5 amps and cabs, 2 mics), and there are LE and free versions with less stuff, then the hardware interface is $39.99. They'll be selling at about 23 in the UK.

If you already own an iPhone, this looks like a no-brainer to me. It'll make a great headphone practice amp, plus you can presumably play through a docking station if you have to hand.

Here's the YouTube promo:

i have Amlitube v2 both metal pack and Jimi Hendrix extensions...if i'm honest i think it sucks, theres so much hiss and noise, yes you can adjust the noise gate settings but in order to remove the noise you virtually have to wind the gate settings to 100% therefore killing a lot of the sympathetic harmonics etc....Gearbox by Line6 is far and away a better program, theres less noise and the cpu load is much lower

I had a problem with noise with all the computer-based amp modellers I tried, but it was because I was using the soundcard's line input rather than an instrument level input - the gain had to be wound up so high to get a signal to the software that noise was inevitable. A proper guitar interface would likely have cured that problem, but I'm looking at getting the Digidesign Eleven Rack instead of a software modeller now anyway.

Thing is, this is a program for an iPhone, not a PC, so it's a different animal. I downloaded the free version of the app last night and messed around with the dry guitar tracks that come loaded in it. I got some pretty good results, and no undue noise. I'll definitely get the hardware interface when it's available, along with the full version of the app, and report back on the results.

glad that the noise issues haven't carried over to the iphone version, sounds like it could be good for jamming on the fly etc.
just to clarify i was using a Line6 toneport guitar interface with my version of Amplitube, there was less noise with this that going straight into the soundcard but it was still what i considered an unacceptable level.

Did you report the noise issues to tech support? They would likely have helped as those products have been used on released albums and without such issues, and it doesn't sound like the typical experience.

By the way AmpliTube for iPhone is now in wide release. Get the FREE version with 3 stompboxes, 1 amp+cabinet, 2 microphones here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ampli...373309342?mt=8

Also there are LE and Full versions:

AmpliTube LE: 5 stompboxes, 1 amplifier + cabinet, 2 microphones - $2.99/€2.39
http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ampli...373507300?mt=8


AmpliTube: 11 stompboxes, 5 amps + cabinets, 2 microphones - $19.99/€15.99

from my experience its very typical, i have it installed on a couple of machines and they're all the same and i know other people who use it and say the same


any plans in the future to release the app for other smartphones such as the Nokia X-6????

How did you use it without the adapter?

If they made this available for Android, I'd be pretty interested. I have a Pocket Pod and, IMO, it sounds like absolute crap. I'd be interested in a cheap alternative.

It comes loaded with eight dry guitar loops that you can apply the models to. It's just enough to give you an idea of what the software can do. I wound up buying the full version so I could mess with it some more. I won't be able to make a full assessment until I've got the hardware, though, so I've got that on order.

For the money, it's worth a gamble for me. The app was 11.99, and the adapter is selling at 23, so it comes out around 35 here altogether. That's about half the price of a Pocket Pod, though I don't know how they compare in quality and flexibility. I do know it's less than I paid for one of those Vox Amplug things, and they sound like crap in comparison.

All this is dependent on you already having an iPhone, though, so if you don't then it doesn't represent very good value at all.
