New design, more amps, more effects, two independent signal paths for bi-amping. Pedal boards and more make this a worthy successor
They say it's "the future of guitar processing. Now." And they may well be right, after all AmpliTube was heaped with awards by the great and the good so there's every chance that version 2.0 offers something special.
Amplitube 2.0 has been totally redesigned, featuring 20,000 amp combinations, ultra-accurate modeling, extreme flexibility, more stomp and rack effects with authentic vintage character, plus more professional features.
AmpliTube® 2 has been designed to reproduce the musicality and ‘live’ behavior of real circuits, with real components, and even age. So guitarists can immediately feel like they are really playing highly collectible and rare vintage amps or stomp boxes they are accustomed to using in hardware.
AmpliTube® 2 now has two completely independent signal chains. Meaning that you can run the sound through two complete rigs including Stomps, Amps, Cabinets and Studio Effects. Also there are now dozens of real microphone placement options for the 6 new microphone models.
30 effects are now included in AmpliTube® 2, combining accurate models of boxes from the past with the latest high-end technology. Compressors, Delays, Pitch Shifters, Octave Divider, Modulation, Reverbs, Rotary Speaker, Fuzz boxes, Overdrives, Stereo Image processor, Limiter and many more.
Two completely customizable 6-stompbox pedal-boards. This means that by simply switching a preset you will be able to completely repatch all of the stompboxes. The same is true for the rack effects, which are now offered in a 2-chain configuration with 4 programmable effects each, for an amazing 8 studio effects series.
