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:
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” (we make some really good ones, to check them out). Once connected AmpliTube gives you the exact signal chain you’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.
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.
