VIR technology gives you extra sonic diversity

IK Multimedia pulled out all the stops when they created AmpliTube 5's re-engineered Cabinet section. It's outfitted with all-new Volumetric Impulse Response (VIR), which utilizes 600 IRs per speaker to give musicians a 3D arrangement of mic placement options ƒ?? all with a handy grid and snap-to function. Plus, IK Multimedia came up with a process for capturing the interaction between the speakers, cabinet, and flooring for an unbelievably lifelike feel. And if revolutionizing cab simulation wasn't enough, IK Multimedia remeasured more than 100 cabinets for AmpliTube 5. All together, AmpliTube 5 provides more than 143,000 IRs for you to choose from. With enough digging, you'll guaranteed to dial in a sound that's all your own.

Dynamic, amp-like playing experience

The most important thing to a guitar player is how an amp sounds and feels, and AmpliTube nails it. A common complaint from guitarists is that software just doesn't respond like an amp does, but AmpliTube gives you such a realistic playing experience that you won't believe you're playing through a virtual amp! Plus, you can add room ambience and adjust your virtual mics to dial in your sound just they way you want it. AmpliTube 5 is a dynamic tool that will help you achieve your perfect guitar tone.

When used as a standalone application, AmpliTube 5's onboard 8-track DAW makes recording your musical ideas easy.
