The AmpliTube 3 from IK Multimedia is a leading Guitar and Bass tone creation software. In terms of selection, performance, and overall sonic accuracy in the creation of guitar and bass tones with a computer, AmpliTube 3 software does a great job.
AmpliTube 3 has a large selection of gear, and the development team is continuously building upon that selection. In the complete AmpliTube 3 flagship full version, there are 160 individual pieces of gear to choose from. Plus, you can add other packages to the mix like AmpliTube Orange, AmpliTube Fender, Ampeg SVX, AmpliTube Slash, and more, and choose from over 235 pieces of gear.
While 235 pieces of gear may sound impressive, far more impressive is the sound of those 235 pieces. Iconic brands like Fender, Ampeg, Orange, Soldano, Seymour Duncan, T-Rex, Jet City and more, have teamed up with IK to offer an accurate reproduction of their gear for the AmpliTube range.
AmpliTube 3 gives you the ability to add gear to your virtual collection, one piece at a time. This is IK’s custom shop feature that lets you buy only the gear you want or need. And IK is constantly adding new gear to the mix with more hardware manufacturers partnering with them to bring their gear to your virtual world. It is like shopping at your music store, but you get to try the gear for 72 hours before you buy it.
You’ll find AmpliTube 3 to be a valuable and flexible tool, expanding your creative palette. In its standalone version, AmpliTube 3 can be used as a sophisticated multi-effects processor that can be integrated into your live rig, thanks to instantaneous preset switching. AmpliTube is also a plug-in for your DAW for live tracking, re-amping guitar and bass tracks, or for having an arsenal of vintage and modern effects to apply on synthesizers and instruments, vocals, drum tracks, and more.
AmpliTube 3 is available as a full version (with 160 gear models included) or a free version (with 24 gear models), or in special dedicated collection versions. It is powered by the AmpliTube family like Amplitube Slash, AmpliTube Metal, and AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix Anniversary Collection (AmpliTube Metal and the original AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix models are included in the full version - the new models from the AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix Anniversary Collection are available from the Custom Shop).

AmpliTube system allows you expand your rig as your needs grow with the new Custom Shop feature — an online environment where you can try and buy individual pieces of gear. Start with the AmpliTube Free version, and then add gear to it, as you need it. In the Custom Shop you can browse, try out, and purchase individual items from the 235 various models, including the officially certified models of a growing list of branded gear from Fender, Orange, Ampeg, Soldano, Gallien-Krueger, Groove Tubes, T-Rex, Seymour Duncan, Jet City, and more. When you find something you like, you can try it out for 2 days in the comfort of your own studio. If you decide to buy it, you can purchase Gear Credits that you redeem for gear. When you purchase a model with gear credits, it is permanently unlocked in your version of AmpliTube and immediately available for use.
