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.
