  1. It’s about time they added digital in/out, rather then only supporting their own hardware. Too bad for them I’ve already gone with JamUp Pro, and like it a whole lot more than amplitube!

  2. This update was long coming, they promised it more than a year ago and I’ve complained many times about the lack of digital in/out. Even though IK Multimedia treats their customers like crap (they banned my account from the forums simply for implying that they purposely only supported their own hardware for so long), I have to say that this update is wonderful. The audio and amp simulation with AmpliTube through the IO Dock is the best of the all the apps out there and I’ve been trying them all. There’s something very warm and analog-like to their amp and FX simulations, something that’s sorely lacking from all the others (StudioDevil Guitar Amp excluded, but it’s got only one amp and one FX). The MIDI support of AmpliTube is also top-notch and I could instantly hook up my Voodoo Labs Ground Control Pro for patch changes and get the per-preset MIDI bindings work instantly. The master FX section makes a huge difference to me and the included compressor and EQ are well worth it. The multi-track recording finally gets really usable with the digital audio input, it’s just a shame that you can’t use it as a looper.
    Finally, the retina graphics are amazing, Jamup looks nice in that department too, both are better looking than AmpKit.

      LOL! They threatened to ban me from the forums for participating in a thread saying that in fact their plug ins were not working under OS 10.7. Took them just over six months to respond to my tech support request and resolve the issue. I’d get about one email a month, and it would be some half-ass suggestion like “repair your permissions”. It was more humor than annoyance since I don’t rely on the couple of products I bought from them. But I’ll never spend another dime on a company with such lame support and slow software updates. Too many good alternatives to put up with that from anyone.

  3. Speaking of IOS toys, that’s about all the old version of Amplitube is, and the stupid irig guitar jack I bought to go with it was aggravatingly worthless. Even as a practice tool, it didn’t take long for me to grow to hate this set up! A guy can only take so many cracks and pops. But the digital guitar jack is a whole different deal, I’m encouraged by the positive reactions, so I’m designating it as item #27 on my list of musical equipment I have to have now-ish.
