Upgrade from Amplitube 4
Guitar amp & FX modeling software with 175 gear models - Mac/PC Standalone, AAX, VST, AU
New Cabinet section with VIR™ technology AmpliTube 5 also premieres a re-engineered Cabinet section with all-new DSP. IK’s new Volumetric Impulse Response (VIR™) uses 600 IRs per speaker, 1,200 IRs for a 2-speaker cab and 2,400 IRs for a 4-speaker cab, capturing a massive 3D array of mic placement options, plus all the interactions between speakers, cabinet and floor for a completely true-to-life sound.
AmpliTube’s movable microphones now truly shine, with an easy-to-use grid that lets you snap to a precise IR point or seamlessly blend between multiple measurements. Best of all, we’ve re-measured over 100 cabinets in AmpliTube 5 Max, refreshing every single cabinet for a massive 143,000 IRs in all. How’d we do it?
We created a custom made, fully automatized, robotic measurement system. This let us re-capture and analyze every cabinet in AmpliTube 5 Max with ultra-consistent, millimeter accuracy, using a range of microphones, for up to 600 measurements per speaker, 2,400 per cabinet and a massive 143,000 IRs in total. It’s a technological breakthrough when it comes to ultra-realistic sound and the most advanced and most comprehensive cabinet section ever. You can now also import your own IRs and load them into AmpliTube 5 with the option to tilt or resize them, giving you total sonic flexibility.
New GUI AmpliTube 5 boasts an all-new, fully-scalable GUI to adapt to any display size, including the latest Retina displays.
Freely Configurable Signal Chain AmpliTube 5 features a new, completely customizable gear chain. Beyond mono & stereo, AmpliTube 5 now supports wet-dry-wet configurations and other advanced series & parallel routing. The overall chain now supports up to a massive 57 simultaneous models across Stomps, Racks, Amps and Cabs. And setup is a breeze - just drag & drop any model into place, to build or re-position even the most complex rigs in seconds.
New Mixer With the massively expanded signal chain options in AmpliTube 5, you need a better way to mix and record that sound as well. So AmpliTube 5’s studio section adds a new Mixer window, letting you blend the sound of your cabinets and microphones, plus DI signal. With panning, levels, busses and 19 built-in effects, some derived from T-RackS 5, it’s a powerful tool to put a final studio sheen on any track.
New Gear 129 brand new gear models, including 2 new stomps, 5 acclaimed amps, and 19 racks FX derived from T-RackS and redesigned specifically for AmpliTube 5, 2 new rooms and over 100 completely re-captured cabinets.

Nearly 20 years ago, AmpliTube pioneered single component modeling technology, going beyond the “black-box-modeling” approach of electronics. Today, IK Multimedia leads the industry by offering players a complete solution for creating the perfect signal chain. From your fingers to your audience, when it comes to achieving sonic nirvana, no other modeling technology can match AmpliTube 5.
Dynamic Interaction Modeling (DIM™)
Analog circuits, especially tube and class-A discrete ones, are not dynamically linear, but have been modeled this way by most companies. So when IK debuted our revolutionary Dynamic Saturation Modeling technology over 10 years ago, it delivered a massive improvement in response and playability and cemented AmpliTube as the leader in realism and accuracy.
Now IK’s Dynamic Interaction Modeling™ technology goes even further. Modeling the interactions and influence that each component has within the system and all of the variables that affect it.
In essence, our new approach produces the EXACT behavior of the entire system in a non-linear and completely dynamic way.
What this means to you is pure authentic amp tone as you'd expect it in the physical world — a sound and feel so true you won't believe your ears... or your fingers!
Volumetric Impulse Response (VIR™)
To capture the cabinets of AmpliTube with the same degree of realism and accuracy as the stomps and amps, IK developed our Volumetric Impulse Response technology.
Instead of using just a single or handful of impulse responses, VIR™ technology captures over 600 impulses per speaker (up 2,400 per cabinet), letting you freely move microphones around in 3 dimensions without sacrificing realism or tone.
VIR™ also captures the interaction of nearby speakers in a multi-speaker cabinet, along with floor reflections and interaction, for an experience that’s virtually indistinguishable from mic’ing a real cabinet. This is a massive leap forward in AmpliTube 5.
“Made in Italy” craftsmanship and heritage
Lastly, our approach to creating hyper-realistic models of gear is firmly rooted in the finest Italian craftsmanship tradition. We don’t simply look at schematics and listen to sound samples like other companies. Not only do we acquire the real units, painstakingly searching for the best specimen of its kind, but we always approach any new piece of gear as a unique modeling project.
From a thorough and detailed analysis of the circuit to hours of A/B sound testing, our process delivers true-to-the-original sound every time.
The most trusted brand by world-class amps and effects manufacturers Don’t just take our word for it when we say we offer the best-sounding, most accurate software modeling in the industry. Check out our partner roster of the world’s best amplifier and effects pedal manufacturers, who rely on IK Multimedia for the most accurate digital reproductions of their products. When Fender®, MESA/Boogie®, Orange®, Soldano®, ENGL® and many more decided to put their name on virtual models of their gear, they chose the best — AmpliTube.
