App Description

LEGENDARY FENDER™ TONE ON YOUR iPAD. NOW WITH INTER-APP AUDIO SUPPORT! USE AMPLITUBE WITH OTHER AUDIO APPS IN REAL TIME.

Turn your iPad® into the ultimate mobile Fender guitar/bass multi-FX processor and recording studio! Use the iRig HD, iRig or iRig STOMP interface to connect your guitar to your iPad, and use iRig MIDI to control AmpliTube with your floor controller.

AmpliTube Fender was developed with careful guidance from the tone gurus at Fender to ensure the authenticity of the sound. Derived from the award-winning desktop recording studio version, AmpliTube Fender for iPad lets you choose from 5 Fender amp models and 6 Fender stompbox models.

AmpliTube Fender for iPad is now Audiobus compatible, meaning it can be opened inside the Audiobus app (a 3rd-party app that requires a separate purchase) and connected to other compatible apps, opening up many more creative options.

The built-in Speed Trainer is a robust practice tool that lets you import audio and change tempo without affecting pitch. Load songs, backing tracks or loops from the Music library on your device, or from a computer, and play along. Slow down material (-50%) to learn complex riffs, or speed up material (+200%) to enhance your playing skills.

As a multi-FX processor for guitar, bass or any instrument, you can build your Fender rig with 4 simultaneous stompbox effects that go into an amp head, speaker cabinet and mic. Each element has full and separate controls for ultimate ‘tweak-ability’.

AmpliTube Fender is also a recording and production studio with a built-in single-track recorder with re-amping ability, which you can expand to a full-featured 8-track recorder with master section via in-app purchase. The new AutoFreeze feature lets you add separate effects chains to each track and tweak them later, if desired. A new 2-measure preroll feature makes it much easier to come in on time when recording.

IMPORTANT: if you currently own AmpliTube for iPad, upgrade to the latest version (now available as a free upgrade), and all AmpliTube Fender gear models are available as in-app purchase, either as a complete set or a-la-carte. This is recommended if you’d like to use the AmpliTube Fender models with your other AmpliTube for iPad app.
