Its sounds are superior but in MY experience so far it is very unstable and I've used it on Win XP and Win7 with Cubase 5.

It can lockup when switching patches. It can lockup when loading. In all my years--I have never seem something in my collection so buggy. It uses like 20 times the Ram as other amp plugins so Im guessing that is what makes it prone to crashes. I have 6 gigs of ram BTW.

Whenever a plugin is using 200mb of ram per instance there has to expert coding. In comparison all my other amp plugins use 10mb and under. So the guys got the sounds right but seem to not know nearly as much about optimizing. But Im being nice. 20 times the ram usage is not a short oversight--its the holocaust.

I also know some will say"I never had a problem". Well..Ive never had a problem with ANY plugin ever--thats how good my system is and thats how good I am at troubleshooting

Anyone else having problems with the MIDI mapping feature in Logic 9? I can get it to work just fine in the Standalone Mode, and my MIDI controller (Akai MPD32) works just fine with everything else in Logic.

Any tips?

I just need a damn serial number. My 10 day demo is about to expire and I've yet to receive my box version. And I pre ordered it over a month before it's release. Last time I preorder anything.

IK is lucky Amp3 kicks some nice ass or I'd be all up in their guts about this. LOL!

You won't hear "never had a problem" but "have you logged a support ticket?" If so, and you weren't sorted, PM me the ticket number and we'll get you squared away. If not, please do and we'll get you squared away.

Normally I'd forward your information to our support manager. Please resend while I check for the information and the status. Did you not get a ticket opened? Typically support is supposed to do this and you'd get a trackable ticket in the system leading to a resolution. Let me know, please. Apologies if something slipped through the cracks.

Edit: I don't see any PM's so perhaps the rep before me was the one? Either way, that isn't what I like to see happen and PLEASE get me the info and I'll get things to the right people. Also send your registered email and IK username. Thanks!

Waves GTR has crappy farting distortion.

I like Amplitube quite alot.

But if anyone is looking for a good simulation of the JCM800, Line 6 Pod Farm 2 has simulated this particular amp running a 1960 cab with Celestion 75 speakers better than any of these amp sims or any other amp sim on the market - by far. (at least the RTAS one I use for Pro Tools.)

The AmpliTube 3.7 update is imminent!
Here's the first look at a little bit of what's coming.
People are guessing what this new mic is right now on our Facebook.

I don't have Facebook but if it's supposed to be a Neumann Gefell CMV-563 with M7 capsule from 1956 it doesn't look correct.

Amplitube 3 rules

Yesterday I made a comparison between AT3 and Pod Farm 2. For both, I used the JCM800 emulation, I bypassed the cab and used the same 3rd party impulse and I matched every setting of the preamp.

With all at 50% AT3 had a nice crunchy tone, on the other hand, Pod Farm 2 sounded very distorted.

Then I did the same with the Custom Shop Soldano and the Pod Farm Soldano, again with the cabs bypassed and using a 3rd party impulse.

I did the same, in this case it was harder because Custom Shop Soldano has more options. Again, Pod Farm 2 sounded much more distorted, and without body.

Don't get me wrong, I like Pod Farm 2, that's why I bought it and it's pretty usable, but AT3 is far superior.

Ampeg amp tubes

Does anyone know of a good place to buy two specific types of tubes for my Ampeg Gemini I? I found good, cheap places to buy most of the tubes, but I'm having trouble finding a place to buy a 7199 tube and a 6CG7 tube. The 7199 isn't made by many companies anymore, actually for a while they quit making it.

Hi billzoe. There is no difference between AmpliTube 3 and AmpliTube 3 FREE other than what gear comes unlocked by default. You have access to all 8 routing configurations, the tuner, and all mix functions regardless of the version. In fact, both use the same installer. As I said, the ONLY difference is the number of unlocked models. And you can unlock any locked model by purchasing it in the Custom Shop.

You can load just the Leslie model and bypass everything else, and it will only use the necessary CPU for the Leslie. CPU usage is very dynamic that way.

Did you try to click the 8 number buttons in the upper left corner of the plugin? This switches between the different routing configs (dual amps, dual cabs and everything in between).
I have AT Free and it works just like the "real" one (except for the number of available models, of course).

Did you download the latest version? IK reduced the CPU-load significantly some versions ago.

Hi all, i havent updated it in 6 months... will try that. i wll try the "8" buttons mentioned above to see if can get the diff routing.

Other than this stuff, its pretty cool. Gotta shout out on the Leslie, as a former owner of a C-3 and 122Leslie it is darn close, esp compared to NI and others - the HiFreq Horn is where it rules . i almost miss my old Leslie but this helps !




Thanks all!

Great sounds

I'm uninterested in the "does it sound real" conversation. My concern is that it sound good.

I like a heavy, distorted sound; Smashing Pumpkins, My Bloody Valentine, Alice in Chains.

I have GTR3. My first emulation program. Has worked well for me. Mind you, the final sound I get is after using eq, compression, fx, etc.

I got the s-gear demo. The Marshall head sounds great. The clean sounds were not very useful to me. Can't justify $99 for that one sound. Maybe later.

I'm impressed with Amplitube emulations. The Orange and Ampeg stuff is beautiful.

I'm also impressed with their business model. You can buy emulations and effects a la carte. The program itself is free and comes with some good emulations.

Charging hundreds of dollars for software bundles often leads to piracy. Some people can't afford it and others don't want to spend a lot of money for one particular effect or emulation.

Its the pricing scheme of the future IMHO. It's like TV. I shut off my cable because I was paying over $100 when there's only like four or five shows I like on TV.

But I digress.

I'm more than happy to pay for my Amplitube stuff because I can buy the specific piece of gear that works for me.

I tried Overloud as well. They have good sounds but like most people, I found the interface annoying. You can figure it out if you invest a little time.

The softube emulations are good as well if narrow in application IMHO.

If your budget is limited I would dive in with Amplitube. It will get you started.

Waves GTR3 is $120 from audiodeluxe.com. Totally worth the money. Great emulations and great fx.

NI guitar rig is a good program too. I demoed it and it sounds great but i couldn't justify $199 seeing as I already had GTR3. They do have a stripped down version for free. If you like their sound you can always buy the full version. Or not. There's enough in the free version to make music.


Like guitarists who use physical gear I shape my sound with products from different manufacturers.

Basically all the major programs are more than usable. Whether or not you get an "amazing" sound is up to your creative and engineering skills.

Not a Logic user but AmpliTube needs to process audio, not MIDI data. You need to route audio through it, usually as an insert effect. If this doesn't help you always have Tech Support available to you at IK Multimedia Support Thanks!
