Great fo guitar but keeps crashing!

I downloaded this a while ago but only started to use it within the last few weeks. The free version only gives you 3 tracks to use so I purchased more. Since that purchase I have had relentless crashing issues almost every single time I select a new track to record’s maddening!! I would honestly say that 90% of the time it crashes. Such a shame because this app is perfect for what I need. I’ve rated 2 stars because of the crashing issue, otherwise I would give it 5 stars.

one of the best amp sims you can get

I was using amplitube with a cheap irig copy and I was getting high floor noise and the low end of the tone disappeared when using with Garageband, also the latency increased. Got irig hd 2, and WOW. Now even with bags of gain it's all super quiet, and amplitube in garageband sounds exactly the same as standalone, AND the latency is super low and pretty much unnoticeable! Lesson learned! Detracting 1 star because the drum machine is too inadequate for any serious use, it only has 2 fills, no one can write a song with 2 fills, also the randomizer is just dumb, I was literally laughing. I'll give AT 5 stars when I'll see a proper drum machine in there, I'd happily pay for it, within reason. Other than that, there are a few amps and pedals in Amplitube IOS that frankly are killer, especially the some high gain models, and I am a tube amp nutter. It won't replace my tube amps, but it's the closest darn thing I know, and in a mix Amplitube sounds great regardless. Just try for yourself by getting Amplitube CS (free) and buying the Engl Powerball for about 10 bucks, it's pretty incredible. In the end I bought the whole suite, and I don't regret it at all, this is a pro amp sim for pro musicians, there's nothing second rated in this software. The reliability is rock solid on my old Ipad Pro, never had any problems whatsoever.

Recently gone to s#!+

Not sure if it’s because I updated the app or updated to iOS16 on my phone or both, but in the last week or so this has become pretty much unusable (and it used to be great). 2 main issues: (1) terrible background buzzing and even worse distortion when playing. It’s definitely AmpliTube not my instrument setup as GarageBand is fine. (2) the tuner is hopeless: most of the time it doesn’t even register that a note is being played and on the intermittent occasions it does, it wanders all over the place: as with (1), GarageBand doesn’t do this so the problem is with this app not my instrument setup.
