In category that is as broad as it is littered with apps, we were unsure how we should focus our criteria to find the best music application? So avoiding the excellent apps that link to your iPod music library, and those that identify music or give you access to a variety of sounds, new and old. We set our sights on those applications that actually allow you to create and interact with your own self produced music and this kind of application rarely reach the heights of IK Multimedia’s home studio app, AmpliTube For iPad.
Although the price may seem a little prohibitive this application genuinely turns your iPad into a fully functioning and equipped mobile guitar, bass, keyboard and vocal multi-effect processors and recording studio! Play, practice and record any time, anywhere with world-class guitar and bass tones, vocal effects and production tools along with a full portable studio. Giving you realistic tones and effects, plus full recording and processing capabilities in a powerful mobile app.
While the effects are all really impressive, ranging from classic to contemporary, the most ear catching feature of this app is the amp simulators. Not only can you use a variety of different amps, but you have all of the knobs that you would expct to have available in this app! For example, the “clean” amp has a very clean “bluesy” sound and has knobs for controlling the tremolo effect. The additional of single track recorder adds further to the must have nature of this product – this can be increased to an 8-track studio via an additional in-app purchase. These recordings can be saved into a high quality M4A sound format which can be emailed via the app. Whether you’re just looking for good way to practice quietly at home, or you need some killer effects for a recording you’re working. AmpliTube is more than capable! Bring the recording studio into your home and then take it with you in your pocket!
