Celebrating db audioware’s 20 years in the audio software business, 20th Anniversary is an original virtual guitar amp that oozes pick-up-and-play appeal.

A true guitarist’s amp, 20th Anniversary excels at clean, blues and rock tones, with a full pedalboard of classic FX and an eye-catching intuitive interface.

There are no complex menus or screens to navigate, no in-app purchases or advertising to distract you. Simply plug your guitar into your iPad or iPhone via any compatible audio interface, and start playing. 
20th Anniversary is the perfect silent practice amp - pop on a set of headphones, and the standalone app delivers the same kind of absorbing experience as a premium hardware amp in a natural sounding space. There’s a comprehensive set of starter presets (for both humbucker and single-coil pickups) and a built-in tuner to get you up and running quickly.

For additional flexibility, the 20th Anniversary AUv3 plug-in works with apps like GarageBand, Cubasis or AUM.

The multi-stage preamp and vintage tone stack, and choice of stereo cabinets with multiple mic positions offers a massive range of amp tones. A comprehensive range of vintage style FX (drawn from db audioware’s extensive audio effects library) and a lush stereo plate reverb completes the sound.

Runs as a standalone app or AUv3 plug-in. Can be controlled from any iOS compatible MIDI device allowing remote control of presets or any amp parameter.

We recommend using 20th Anniversary with wired headphones. For an iPhone with no headset socket, we advise using an audio interface with dedicated headphone output (for example, an iRig HD 2).

Great tone

I was a huge fan of an earlier version of the app (Haggis forever!), and am stoked that the developer has updated and refreshed things. I’ve got a ton of amp and effects apps — but by far, this is what sounds best to me. Warm, clear, glassy tones, all the way to overdriven distortion. I’m a very happy camper, and this app is an absolute steal.
