Expansive Collection of Modeled Fender Amps

By tarrtime, 19/12/2012
Amplitube Fender is an expansion pack for IK Multimedia Amplitube. With the introduction of Amplitube Custom Shop, individual amp models in this package can be purchased separately rather than as a bundle.
IKM Amplitube is a software plug-in that can be used inside a DAW, and can also be used as a stand-alone plug-in.


The range of Fender amplifier simulations goes beyond anything else available on the market. I love the sound of the 'small' Fender amps in this bundle (Deluxe, Pro Junior, Champ). The mid-sized amps (Twin, Deluxe Reverb, Vibro-King, Vibroverb) are the best parts of the bundle. I consider these kind of amps to be the quintessential Fender amp sound. If you want modeled versions of this kind of amp sound, this package is the way to go. Don't bother with - Guitar Rig 5, OverLoud THD, Pod Farm 2, Eleven. I consider the Fender Bassman to be in a separate class of its own. The 4x10 cabinet simulation in AT3 for the Bassman is the best compared to all the other competitors.
What surprised me the most about this software was the heavy-sounding amps. I don't really consider Fender to be known for amps with a lot of drive/distortion. I normally think Marshall, Mesa-Boogie, Bogner, etc. when I want overdrive. The Fender Super Sonic and Metal Head were surprisingly unique, and a nice change of pace compared to other types of these amps. The Metal Head is definitely extreme gain, but has a unique voicing compared Mesa-Boogie and Bogner. The Super Sonic can cover a full range of amp sounds from clean - extreme. I like this amp best for the mid-gain settings comparable to Marshall, Matchless, etc.


Fender Amps are some of the most popular and most recorded amps from the past 50 years. I'm glad Fender decided to go ahead and have an entire range of their amps modeled rather than just the Twin and 4x10 Bassman that are staples of every amp software.
It is a lot of fun to play through these amp sims because their sound is so familiar. I typically play rock music, so I usually want the sound of a Marshall or Mesa-Boogie with a little bit more gain than a Fender Twin. However, I will always have a soft-spot for the Fender clean amp sound because my uncle gave me a '72 Silverface Bassman 100 when I first start playing guitar. With amp sim software, it is so cheap to get so many different amp sounds. To me, these Fender amp sounds are essential to any producers/engineers collection.

Mixed feelings ...

The installation was done without difficulty ...
The general configuration was easy ...
No incompatibilities.
No manual, but ease of use that makes one forget this defect ...
Ideal for work or on the go again ... with a laptop, of course. The plug fits into all known apps, except for those that do not support plug-ins such as Record, for example ...


my config: iMac 3.2 GHz Intel Core i3, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, External Sound Card M-Audio Fast Track ...
Excellent performance as eating very little CPU ...
Works fine on this config 'which is very stable ...


I use it for two years, I think ... I have nothing else tested before buying. What I like most is the ease of use ... Nothing less than I do, however, Jack guitar cable-usb is a luxury that I pass as I go through the external sound card that has no usb port ...
Choice again, if the opportunity arose ...

All the Good

Installation without any difficulty. The difficulty (relative) is at the level of authorization, which must be done online and I process this kind of stuff myself ...
The configuration, however, is rather easy. You just do not forget to go to the prefs to indicate the sound card used. Otherwise, serious fastoche!
I have not had to deplore incompatibility. When the manual, it honestly feels no real need since we are on familiar ground. The settings are those found on an amp, or effects, whether racks or pedals.


I have a large configuration (Intel Xeon Quad Core 2.8 Ghz x 2) is no particular problem. But I think Amplitube Fender is not too resource hungry. I never had to mourn crash in Stand Alone and integration into the DAW (Cubase, Reaper, Logic) is no problem.


I use this app for at least three years. I must say that I'm almost the whole series of Amplitube (3 Amplitube, Ampeg 2, ExGear). I tried almost everything that is done in this area. I also tried just about all emulations that exist in sequencers (Cubase, Logic, Digital Performer) and I must say that Amplitube series is by far the most convincing and effective.
For the record, Fender has been involved in the emulation of Fender amps. I must say that the result is quite impressive. You plug the guitar, you set a Bassman, a Twin Reverb or Deluxe, and the feeling is strong. The sound is powerful, the feeling of being responsive to one of these gems Fender is there.
Amplitube Fender is particularly effective insert guitar track in a mix and brings a special dimension to the guitar. The effect is stunning. iKmultimédia also consider including a gaggle of effects pedals and racks, but came to produce all kinds of effects.
Online, a participative page offers a multitude of settings and each brings his stone to the building. iKMultimédia also just added a bundle CustomShop free to acquire additional amps and effects, with some parts of course ...
I do it again this choice without hesitation. Amplitube Fender (and Amplitube 3) is a soft essential to any guitarist who is working on DAW and seeks alternatives to taking out his studio and concert.
