Amplitube Fender is at the forefront of guitar amp software for iOS. Its ultra clean tone has made it an immensely popular program despite its moderately hefty price tag ($14.99 not including add-ons). We’ve covered Amplitube Fender and it’s features in a previous article, but the recent update brings about some welcomed additions worth mentioning.
For starters, it now comes with complete MIDI support; giving you another way to manage and navigate through the app. This is particularly useful for live performance situations when your hands might not always be available. The new recording and mixing section has been redesigned; offering more flexibility and options than its somewhat clunky predecessor. It’s a lot easier to compose and arrange complete productions. Audio Copy/Paste is another vital addition. Its exporting options now include Soundcloud and FTP.
The one thing about Amplitube Fender 1.2 is that it still only comes with a single track recorder. In order to get the most out of this app, you’ll have to upgrade to the 8-track recorder, which will cost you another $14.99. With that being said, if you’re looking to get professional use out of your iPad, this guitar amp software is as good as they come for iOS standards.
