How it works AmpliTube Metal is extremely intuitive — so much in fact that you really don’t need an owners manual to operate it. (Don’t worry, we give you one but you probably don’t need it.) Here’s the set-up:
Get Connected To use AmpliTube Metal as a guitar or bass tone machine, you have to connect your guitar to your computer. You do this with what’s called an “audio interface”. Once connected AmpliTube gives you the exact signal chainyou’d use live and/or in studio: tuner —> pedalboards —> amp heads —> speaker cabs —> mics with room effects —> rack effects. Plus, you can configure two complete rigs and run in stereo.
Signal Chain There are also eight different series/parallel “routing” options available that give you total signal chain control, allowing you to configure tones for every possible playing scenario. You can select different configurations on the fly as you see fit: dual pedal boards running into a single amp head split to two cabs with different mic sets for each running into a single rack with a compressor and graphic eq, just as an example. The combinations are endless.
Speaker, Mic and Room Control AmpliTube Metal features an incredibly detailed cabinet, microphone and room module that lets you virtually recreate your favorite recording space. You can mic your cabinet with two mics and freely place the mics around the speaker to find the “sweet” spot. You can also control the mix between mic 1 and mic 2, and change the overall “depth” of the cabinet itself. Then, you can control the room reflection and ambience utilizing the room mic positioning tool. All of mic placement options are freely movable (just click and drag), so making adjustments to the room vibe are a breeze.
Presets – The key to live performance The entire AmpliTube Metal chain can be easily saved, organized and recalled through the advanced built-in preset browser. Presets can be tagged and stored using a series of searchable, user defined keywords and attributes. Plus, the online Preset XChange service allows users to post and share presets they created, with a growing community of AmpliTube users.
Going Mobile One of the great things about AmpliTube Metal (and all the AmpliTube line for that matter) is its portability factor. Take your Guitar, a or Audio Interface and your laptop loaded with AmpliTube Metal with you anywhere you go. Plus, AmpliTube Metal features a built-in 4-track recorder so you can record and layer riffs and musical ideas anywhere.
AmpliTube Metal works as a Standalone Application for your laptop/desktop machine, and as a VST/RTAS/AU plug-in for most popular DAWs and sequencing applications. And no matter which version you use, your presets are always available with just a click of the mouse, allowing you to recreate complex signal chains and easily reproduce setups and tones.
