45 of Fender's most influential guitar and bass gear modeled in conjunction with Fender's tone gurus.

AmpliTube Fender is the first and only official guitar/bass amp and effects software suite made by IK Multimedia in cooperation with Fender. With a sample collection of 45 of the most sought-after classic and modern Fender amps (including the '65 Twin Reverb, '57 Deluxe, '59 Bassman LTD, '64 Vibroverb, Custom, Super-Sonic, Metalhead, and many more), cabinets, stompboxes and rack effects, AmpliTube Fender raises the bar for software amplifiers.

From guitar to bass, country to blues and rock, punk to metal”whatever style you play, AmpliTube Fender is the only amp suite that gives you the world's most influential guitar and bass tones right on your desktop.

In the development of AmpliTube Fender, IK Multimedia has taken an unprecedented approach to set the standard of modeling accuracy in order to nail every sonic nuance of the included legendary Fender gear. Every step in the development process has been constantly supervised and sound-certified, step-by-step, by the tone gurus at Fender to ensure that the same quality process of real gear tone-testing has been strictly followed in the realization of AmpliTube Fender.

Intuitive interface”Enhanced DSP engine
AmpliTube Fender interface presents a complete replica of included amps, effects, and related controls that is immediately familiar to any guitarist. Every parameter adjustment is never more than 2 clicks away, making even the most complex guitar tone fast to set up and edit.

The interface is supported by leading DSP modeling, which improves upon the already award-winning sound of AmpliTube 2 delivers optimal realism. AmpliTube Fender samples are reproduced using ultra-accurate modeling technologies developed by IK engineers with years of research in circuitry modeling. In addition to IK's classic DSM (Dynamic-Saturation Modeling), the VRM (Volumetric Response Modeling) technology has been developed to nail down even the finest sonic detail. VRM makes it possible to physically emulate the real sound of a rotary speaker as it has never done before in a sample software.

5 separate modules on 2 separate guitar rigs
Like AmpliTube 2, AmpliTube Fender includes 5 individual components, with Tuner, Stomp pedal board, Amp Head, Cabinet + Mic, and Rack effects on 2 separate guitar rigs with 8 different series/parallel configurations. Up to 12 simultaneous stompboxes, 2 Amp Heads, 2 Cabinets with 2 Mics, and 8 Rack effects can be configured and used simultaneously.

The massive number of resulting sound combinations allows for flexibility that's a dream for any guitar player: two separate paths, each with a complete setup to be played simultaneously, or the incredible power to be able to double the available stomps, amps, cabinets, and racks effects in one monstrous rig.

Standalone version with SpeedTrainer
The standalone version of AmpliTube Fender sports the same features of the plug-in and includes SpeedTrainer, an integrated audio player that gives you separate pitch and speed controls for learning any of your favorite riffs by slowing tempos of guitar solos without changing the pitch. SpeedTrainer allows you to drag any WAV or MP3 from your hard disk (even iTunes files) and set loop points easily for playing over and tracking your songs. An included metronome (set by BPM or Tap) is also very useful for the studying and practicing guitarist.

AmpliTube X-GEAR and StompIO seamless integration
AmpliTube Fender also includes AmpliTube X-GEAR so it can be integrated with all current and future "Powered by AmpliTube" products within a single interface. X-GEAR provides full mixing and matching of over 200 award-winning gear models, and adds full MIDI and StompIO control for live usage. When used with AmpliTube X-GEAR, all the models from AmpliTube Fender can be read together with AmpliTube 2, AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix, AmpliTube Metal and Ampeg SVX, to build the ultimate mega-rig of award-winning Fender amp models and truly custom guitar and bass tones.

By utilizing AmpliTube X-GEAR, AmpliTube Fender software can instantly be controlled live via StompIO or StealthPedal for the ultimate tone rig, with no special setup.

StompIO turns your computer into an advanced, high-end floor multi-FX system, with 10 floor-board switches, 6 knobs, 2 large displays, and up to 6 external switches/expression pedals, with no need to connect a monitor, mouse, or keyboard.

Comments about IK Multimedia AmpliTube Fender Software Amp & Effects Suite:

I would recommend this only when its on-sale. The amp sounds are pretty good. IK Multimedia and Fender did a very good job coming close to many of the sounds. My issues are not with the guitar tones, which are very good, but with IK multimedia. The good is once you register your gear you get a product page where you can see all available free stuff and your items you purchased. Also good is that they do respond quickly to questions. The problem is all their stuff does not really work well togther. I have amplitube metal, which is great. What I want is to be able to interchange amps, stomps, etc from Amplitude metal and Fender, load backing tracks etc. No so easy even with the solution called X-gear. The X-Gear software has compatibility issues. Right now I can mix and match between amplitube fender and metal but when I load backing tracks to play over sound quality goes from great to very poor with noise issues. You won't like it, believe me. In contrast, independently, Amplitube Metal and Fender sound very good including when backing tracks are loaded. Thus, independently the software works great but when you tie it all together sound quality goes way down. This is a big issue considering this stuff is not inexpensive and should work better together. The other thing to note is you must buy an iterface to connect to you PC. Its not out of the box ready. On line you can get some free software. Amplitube free is pretty basic with recoding capability. Sound quality is prettyy bad and overall its not very good - but its free. The free amplitube custom shop is kind of cool that allows you to buy additional stuff or even try it out for free for a couple of days. Warning, the stuff you buy can't be used in does not show up in menu - it only will show up in amplitube free which is very basic and nothing special. This is another very annoying flaw. So in final review, I would say its good but it is far from perfect. If IK can fix their software where all these solutions are interchangeable with high sound quality, this would go from good to mind boggling awesome. Come on IK....fix your stuff!! Buy only if on sale. This does not replace a real amp in any shape or form. Great for parctise at home or road with headphones.

Comments about IK Multimedia AmpliTube Fender Software Amp & Effects Suite:

I had been waiting for a review of IK Multimedia's Amplitude Fender to come up to see what someone else thought before purchasing - However, I couldn't wait any longer so I ordered it up and now feel compelled to write a review within 8 hours of receiving it. Amplitude Fender is incredible. I have been playing guitar for nearly 30 years and have owned several of the "classic" Fender Amps. This one piece of software makes you feel like a kid in a candy store flipping between a Twin, Deluxe, Vibroking, etc.I must admit I have always been a Fender amp guy - I have never owned a Marshall or a "boutique" amp. So I am clearly in the demographic for Amplitude Fender, but I was also skeptical that I could get the true Fender feel and sound off my laptop - Amplitude Fender pulls it off.For those that record and got tired of using plug-in amps that say "American Vintage" or "American Classic" which never got you to the true Fender sound - This takes care of the problem. This is "Fender" - No close simulations. Though some may debate whether this software absolutely captures the true nuisances of a Fender amp in the digital world, I say it is so close that such debates would be trivial. For a guy who knows the difference between a Twin and a Deluxe - The difference is here. The unique characteristics of a Bassman are captured.I can only hope that this product gets developed further to give Fender amp fans the total library of "classic" Fender Amps. For example, I would love to have a Super Reverb and Dual Showman added. I could quibble a little over feeling the need to put the newer Supersonic and Pro Junior on this product, I do like the inclusion of the Vibroking and modified Vibroverb. I guess the bottomline is I am greedy and want them all! Any and all Fender Amp fans need to buy this software to ensure that IK Multimedia gets kudos, sales, and the incentive to develop supplements. Though I may discover a shortcoming or glitch down the road, I don't see anything popping up that is going to dampen my enthusiasm for this fine product. I am going to stop writing so I can get back to the Candy Store....

I Think It's Fender Spot On!

Comments about IK Multimedia AmpliTube Fender Software Amp & Effects Suite:

I recently bought and used Amplitude Fender to record guitar ringtones as a fundraiser for my sister and others who have cancer. The tones out of this box are pure Fender magic because I did a test and not one single person has been able to tell me which of my ringtones were recorded with Amplitude Fender versus my Blues Jr. NOS! An absoulutely amazing piece of software worth every penny. Thank you IK Multimedia and Fender!!!!

The Real Deal

Comments about IK Multimedia AmpliTube Fender Software Amp & Effects Suite:

IK Multimedia's amp sims are IMHO the best around. All of the others are toys/sound pretty phoney.Seriously this is like getting $15K+ worth of amps for a mere fraction of the cost! A guitarist I recently recorded had an old Fender Twin and didn't bring it one time and we had to punch a track he had already recorded a week prior. So we used the Fender plugin and was able to match the real one's sound seamlessly. So I can only imagine the other simulations are just as dead-on.You need a modern computer to run any of IK's guitar sim plugins, but especially AF. For this I had to knock a half point off the features scale. But if your DAW software can "freeze" your track it's not much of an issue.Amplitube Fender has set a new standard for guitar amp sim plugins and I can't wait to hear what IK has in store for us next! Sorry to sound like such a shill but these guys saved me tons of money, lots of studio space and have enabled me to easily get great guitar tones in my home recording studio without the neighbors complaining.

Comments about IK Multimedia AmpliTube Fender Software Amp & Effects Suite:

I've been a long time Fender player and decided I would change from the regular Amplitube to their new Fender specific software. If you are a fan of the Fender sound, this is an amazing software package. The amp sounds are true and the presets offer an unlimited source of different sounds. This is a very important addition to my rtas collection! You won't be disappointed.


Easy Button for Fender Tone

Comments about IK Multimedia AmpliTube Fender Software Amp & Effects Suite:

It could not be easier. I have owned three different older Fender amps in my life and this plug in has the tone down perfectly. Its also does an outstanding job of creating the correct playing dynamics by giving more tube saturation and compression when I play harder ... just like the real Fender tube amp.I currently own a vintage Fender Quad Reverb and some good mics but I can get virtually the same sound with the plug-in which saves time and means I can lay tracks at any hour of the night. Best $ you can spend if you want vintage Fender amp tone and effects in your studio. Do be aware that this plug-in requires a strong CPU if you want to run amps and lots of effects.
