My two cents worth...
I have to say it's disappointing to find that every second (or even more!!) press on a button in AmpliTube takes you to their store section where you need to purchase additional amps, mics, effects, looper yadaa yadaa....u get it. In fact the whole app seems to be designed around convincing you to spend more of your cash... IK needs to redesign it so your purchased section is completely separate to what you don't own. It's appears underhanded and gets in the way of a creative flow and just ends up annoying you.
My recommendation is to avoid this in the first place if you're a serious musician (yes I know what I'm saying there about IK) because there are less annoying and/or frustrating purchases out there.
I doubt I'm going to end up using this in iPad recording and I've already spent a fair amount on it.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your review and feedback. The free app is just a starting point yet offers the basics to get started with some fun gear and features! The app can be expanded as much or as little as you like via in-app purchases. Check out some of the bundles for the best value and keep an eye on our promotional offers!
Switch your speaker off ?????????
Great fun to use ,a little hard to navigate to the actual free app features due to ads etc , also there’s no STOP BUTTON so I ended up recording 10mins of nothing due to difficulties turning the speaker off. I like the app but it needs simple quick notions not a runabout
I tried the standard free effects (crush, delay and phaser) and found them all to be of extremely poor quality with way too much treble. I initially thought that maybe this was because they were the free features and not meant to be very good, however I then purchased the “red special” effect to see if there was any use to this app in terms of achieving different guitar sounds, but it was pathetic. The sound quality was awful and some settings wouldn’t work when I tried it on a strat. It was a relief to turn the app off and return to the amp's own sound as the app provided a lot of annoying background noise through the amp that could not be turned off by the usual killing of the volume on the guitar. Really disappointing for such a cool concept, as well as for the money spent on it.
