Available for download, AmpliTube 4 from IK Multimedia provides amplifier, cabinet, stompbox, and effects-rack emulations for electric guitars and electric basses. In stand-alone mode, this software can also function as an 8-channel DAW with full recording, looping, editing, mixing, and exporting capabilities. Used in any application such as Pro Tools or Logic, the software allows you to process DI'd guitar and bass through simulations of various guitar-related gear-pieces, and thus approximate a more realistic tone.

Essentially, AmbliTube 4 provides you with an emulated pedalboard, a simulated effects loop, a modeled amplifier, a cabinet stage, and an effects rack, all of which are yours to tweak however you see fit. Not only that—you get two sets of the aforementioned items, and you're able to route your signal through each model in any manner you choose; mono chains, stereo setups, and dual stages of amplification are possible, as are creative combinations in practically any assortment you could cobble together.

It is also worth noting that the tools in AmpliTube 4 work well in conjunction with analog synths, electric pianos, drums, and even soft-synths. This software is compatible with Mac and Windows platforms, and will work in VST2, VST3, AU, and AAX formats running at 64-bit.

AmpliTube 4 Highlights

Dynamic Response through Sponge & Sag
The amplifier/cabinet combinations in AmpliTube 4 utilize "Sponge and Sag" processing to replicate, in a more faithful manner, the dynamic interaction between the power amp and the speakers, aiming to eliminate the "harshness" found in the upper frequencies of other software
Acoustic Simulator
AmpliTube 4 features an Acoustic Sim pedal that aims to transmute your electric guitar into an acoustic; it is tweakable with on-board controls and features three styles of acoustic body and body-tops
Effects-Loop Stage
AmpliTube 4 provides an additional slot in the signal chain right after the pre-amp section but before the power stage; this slot lets you add in up to four daisy-chained effects (including all of the stompboxes) for signal processing before hitting the power section
Put Effects Anywhere in the Chain
You can use many of the stompbox and rack effects in any of the rack-effects slots; conversely, you can use rack effects in the stompbox slots too
8-Channel Recorder
AmpliTube 4 can operate as an 8-channel DAW, allowing you to capture, loop, edit, mix, and export audio in the stand-alone application
MIDI-Controllable Looper
Dubbed the Super Looper, this feature is a 4-part looping station suitable for laying down multi-part backing tracks; each track includes level and panning controls, and can be instantiated by MIDI-foot controller or mouse click
UltraTuner
