AmpliTube UA app for all Android devices released

Your guitar tone on your Android phone - download now for free

Proudly announcing the release of AmpliTube UA. It’s the first real-time guitar amp and effects processing app for all Android phones and tablets that gives musicians the freedom to rock out any time and anywhere with their favorite Android mobile device. The companion app to the soon-to-be-released iRig UA universal digital interface, AmpliTube UA gives musicians with Android devices (version 4.2 or higher and that support USB host mode/USB OTG) the ability to experience the power of a portable customizable guitar rig complete with 3 stompbox effects, an amplifier, a cabinet and a microphone.

PRE-ORDER YOUR IRIG UA TODAY!

Superior guitar tone on every Android smartphone
In 2010, IK Multimedia pioneered the mobile music creation market with the introduction of the iRig interface and AmpliTube for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. With over 17 million downloads on mobile devices worldwide, AmpliTube is the leading guitar app — it’s a global sensation that continues to inspire guitarists, bass players and other musicians with its ease-of-use, vast library of virtual gear and limitless tone sculpting possibilities.

An industry first, AmpliTube UA now brings this famous creative ease to Android. It lets users build great sounding virtual guitar and bass rigs by selecting from 21 included gear models that include 5 amplifiers, 9 stompbox effects, 5 cabinets and 2 positionable microphones. The flexible signal path available in AmpliTube UA lets players change the order of effects and amps, and even add effects “after” the amplifier in the signal chain to provide even more creative tonal options.

An expandable amp and effects library of world-class brands
Like all versions of AmpliTube, the base collection of gear can be expanded from within AmpliTube UA. There are currently 22 available models available via in-app purchase. All are based on iconic pieces of gear from world-class official brands like Fender™, Orange®, Ampeg®, Soldano® and more. There’s also exclusive content available from our artist’s series like AmpliTube® Slash and AmpliTube® Jimi Hendrix™ collections.

Universal Android processing
To get the most out of AmpliTube UA, it needs to be paired with the forthcoming iRig UA digital audio interface (due out in May). The combination of iRig UA and AmpliTube UA delivers universal zero latency processing and high-quality sound on the Android platform. Together they give musicians the ability to play in real-time with no audible device processing delay, a “market first” for Android devices. This previously impossible feature is now a reality due to iRig UA’s built-in high performance 32-bit DSP, 24-bit A/D converter, 44.1/48kHz sample rate, and low-noise instrument preamp. With its premium specifications, iRig UA is able to provide great sound, amazing playability and unprecedented cross-platform compatibility.

AmpliTube UA functions in a “preview” mode when an iRig UA is not connected to the device. This lets musicians build, control and apply custom guitar rigs that can be used with the provided “dry” audio demo. iRig UA is required for audio-in and guitar processing functionality. iRig UA’s on-board digital signal processor works in conjunction with AmpliTube UA app. As of the processing is handled onboard iRig UA, and not on the Android device, it’s able to provide consistent zero-latency performance (down to just 2ms round-trip total latency) independent of the make and model of the connected smartphone or tablet. Or, in other words, it offers the plug-and-play performance that mobile musicians with Android devices crave.

The perfect pair
The pairing of iRig UA and AmpliTube UA is perfect for on-the-go practice and performance. iRig UA features a 1/4” input for a guitar, bass or other line-level instrument, a micro-USB to OTG cable and a 1/8” stereo output with volume control for headphones or connection to a live sound speaker, amplifier or mixer. It also sports a 1/8” AUX input that lets musicians connect any sound source so that they can practice and jam along to their favorite tunes with the power of AmpliTube's tone.

Pricing and availability
AmpliTube UA is now available as a free app via the Google Play store. iRig UA will be available May 2015 from music and electronics retailers worldwide, and can also be pre-ordered in the IK online store now for only $99.99/€99.99 (excluding taxes).

I have a Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 tablet running with Cyanogenmod Lolipop 5.1.

The Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 tablet has the same hardware as my Galaxy S5 phone. Is it possible to run Amplitube on my tablet. The bigger screen is much more ideal for Amplitube vs my phone.

Is there a work around to enable the support. The Google Play store will not let me download Amplitube on my tablet.

If your Samsung device does not support Samsung Professional Audio you'd need to run AmpliTube UA on iRig UA.

I purchased a iRig HD-A for my Galaxy S5. Are you saying I would need to buy a iRig UA for my tablet to work?

Is the difference between two the devices is that the audio processing is done inside the iRig UA instead of inside the phone?

Am I dependent on Samsung to release an update for my tablet for the HD-A to work?

If your device does not support Samsung Professional Audio then you would need to either use iRig UA or yes you are dependent on Samsung to add that support to your device.

I just received my iRig 2 and haven't got the chance to try it yet :)

Is iRig 2 compatible with AmpliTueb UA or should I just use standard AmpliTube? I am using Samsung Galaxsy S6 edge

AmpliTube UA requires iRig UA to run. You would want to use AmpliTube for Samsung Pro Audio

If you are using AmpliTube for Samsung Pro Audio on a supported device, yes. AmpliTube UA, however, requires iRig UA.

I do not have a specific date but it should be within the next month or so barring any unforeseen hardware manufacturing hurdles.

I have a Galaxy Tab S 8.4, running Samsung's stock 5.0.2 ROM.

I cannot download Amplitube from either Google Play or Samsung's Galaxy Apps because it doesn't think my device is compatible.

However, it does have Samsung Professional Audio, and if I back up Amplitube on my Note 4 and sideload onto my Tab S, it seems to work fine (albeit not optimised for the larger form factor) and even restored my In App purchases.

This is workable for me, although every time there is an update I would need to backup and sideload again from my Note 4. Tablet owners who don't have another Samsung Professional Audio device would be out of luck, unless they resort to warez (which helps no one, especially not IK Multimedia), so it would be really nice if IK Multimedia could at least update the Galaxy App store listing, to allow Tab S's to download Amplitube from the Store.

In hardware terms, the Tab S 8.4 is practically identical to the Tab Pro 8.4, so I'd imagine Lollipop for the Tab Pro should include Samsung Professional Audio. However, if you're running CyanogenMod on your Pro 8.4, I'd guess you won't have Samsung Professional Audio anyway, since I doubt anyone ported it across to the CyanogenMod ROMs.

Regards,

Dave

Have you reported this issue to support? They would definitely work directly with development to see what was happening with that compatibility mismatch and get it taken care of.

Also, yes I meant stock Android installs on compatible devices. Of course you are on your own if you are using a rooted or otherwise modified version of the OS.
