Heavy metal modeling software featuring high-gain amps, cabinets, hard-to-find stompbox effects, and more.

IK Multimedia AmpliTube Metal is amp and stompbox modeling software dedicated entirely to heavy metal gear. To get their sound, some the best metal producers have upwards of $30,000 worth of amps, cabs, and effects alone. And when you factor in mics, preamps, and other studio tools, having similar tonal options would be out of the question for the rest of us—but not any more. IK's AmpliTube Metal can outfit your virtual studio with a "shock and awesome" arsenal of 48 highly acclaimed models of modern and vintage amplifiers, cabinets, stompboxes, and rack effects. Based on IK's award-winning AmpliTube 2 software, AmpliTube Metal offers an iconic collection of gear models that recreate 4 decades worth of amazing metal tone.

AmpliTube Metal is a complete collection of ultra-realistic models of classic metal gear, from legendary, hard-to-find Japanese originals to classic British and American essentials. It includes 14 stomp boxes, 5 amp models, 13 cabinets, 6 mics, 9 rack FX, and a tuner for 48 never-before- heard models. It adds exciting new high-gain sounds, including models based on the ProCO Rat, Electro-Harmonix Big Muff, Digitech Whammy, many vintage BOSS effects, the Randall Warhead, Peavey 5150, Mesa/Boogie Triple Rectifier, and other great metal gear.

Spanning from the late 70s through the 90s, AmpliTube Metal is the ultimate toolbox for gain-heads of all styles. And if that's not enough tonal options, the included AmpliTube X-GEAR lets blend all the models from Metal with AmpliTube 2, Ampeg SVX, and AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix—with full mixing and matching capabilities for the ultimate mega-rig of award-winning gear models. They can also be controlled via StompIO for unparalleled real-time control on-stage or in the studio.

Here's a sampling of the models and the famous pedals and amps they're based on:

Comments about IK Multimedia AmpliTube Metal Amp and Stompbox Modeling Software:

Highly recommended amp modeling software package. Endless combinations of amps, stompboxes and tones. Some of the tones will rip your face off. Some of the presets are very good. With a lap top, headsets and a guitar, you can jam anywhere. Easy to upload backing tracks. The low price makes this a great value. On the down side, it took 1-2 hours to install and the necessary audio interface is not included. It must be purchased separately. But, overall, this is a very good package with some great tones possible.

Comments about IK Multimedia AmpliTube Metal Amp and Stompbox Modeling Software:

I've been using IK stuff for a long time. First started with Amplitube 1.0. I've tried a lot of others also by other companies and for Metal this software suite is very, very good.The amps, cabinets, stomp boxes and effects that come in this package are scary-realistic. If you are a desktop recorder like myself purchasing the hardware in this software gives it amazing value.With digital recording the garbage IN = garbage OUT. A competent signal into the computer is necessary.
