The work ikMutimedia put into the app has really started to show...
I bought this app in 2015 & upgraded it to the full version in 2016. I’m writing my review on this CS version since I can’t write it on the full version. After getting the Slash, Hendrix & Orange packs I liked Amplitube, but preferred ToneStack from Yonac. The tones were okay but just too fizzy & digital for my tastes. I saw Greg Koch demo the Fender 2 collection on the desktop version of Amplitube and immediately wanted it for this iOS version. When it arrived I was blown away how far the emulating tech had come, and using the Fender 2 pack is a joy. I’m not saying the older amps aren’t usable; there are several amp/pedal combos from the earlier packs I’ve made good presets with. But the Fender 2 stuff is just in a different league. As I write this in mid April 2018 there’s a bundle sale going on, if you haven’t tried the app or Fender 2 I really recommend it. I’m no cork sniffer when it comes to amps, i.e. they must be tube, 50 years old, wrapped in tweed, etc. but I have a late ‘60’s Deluxe that this app comes very close to the ballpark indeed. Especially just a SM57, close mic’d rhythm tone that cleans up with some volume backed off...they’ve really captured that mic’d guitar amp tone. Highly recommended.

The hate isn’t justified
I started out with just the free version but quickly upgraded to the essentials pack (basically paying in full for the app via the other one in the store) once I realized the capabilities of what I could achieve for a fraction of the price and in a mobile form (via my iPad). The ability to bring my instruments and iPad with me for practicing with limited space more than made everything worth it. My only issue is I can get some feedback at times, but with some fine tuning and tinkering you can find the sweet spot. All in all a good product with a few money making ideas (which I feel are justified) for the quick use and portability.
I Actually Love it. Great Program/App!! Especially being both huge fans of a Queen and GnR
I love it. I use it (the iPad App, with my iRig HD 2) every time I play. Being a huge Queen fan and a big GnR fan I may be biased. I've purchased the two add ons for them. Although the factory "discography" sounds for GnR I don't believe to be even close, maybe the Paradise City intro. Not even close for November Rain or Sweet Child. Def need to tweak the mics and pedals to get a good GnR sound. I use an epiphone Slash AFD Les Paul guitar running with a Morley A/B splitter through two 15 watt epiphone AFD amps. I also own a real BMG Red Special and use the Brian May settings, which are almost spot on!, they are done very well. I have tried using the Les Paul with the Queen settings but don't get the same results as with the Red Special. I use the same two amps using that guitar too and get awesome Queen sounds with it. For an extra few bucks, buying all of the mics and moving them around, tweaking them makes a HUGE difference. So as you can see I am a big fan of this app.
