Now AmpliTube MESA/Boogie goes everywhere with you!

Put high-gain Boogie amps on your iPhone and iPad

AmpliTube MESA/Boogie, the ultimate collection of official MESA/Boogie amps & cabs, is now available for iPhone and iPad! Based on the popular desktop tone software, the AmpliTube MESA/Boogie app is the official mobile MESA/Boogie tone studio collection featuring the best in high gain amplification from the inventors of high gain amplification!

Working in close collaboration with the R&D Team at Mesa Engineering, AmpliTube MESA/Boogie lets musicians play their guitar or bass through some of MESA/Boogie’s most famous genre-defining amplifiers and cabinets. And like all AmpliTube virtual gear, these models have been carefully crafted to sound, look and perform as close to their hardware counterparts as possible! In addition to the MESA/Boogie gear, AmpliTube MESA/Boogie also comes with 6 versatile stompboxes that let guitar and bass players build and play with their dream MESA/Boogie tone rig anytime and anywhere.

The amplifiers and cabinets available in AmpliTube MESA/Boogie include:

MESA/Boogie Dual and Triple Rectifier: The standard for modern high-gain heavy guitar tone. The Rectifier amps are aggressive amplifiers for aggressive players. Both have played a major role in defining the sound of grunge, metal and countless other forms of hard and heavy music. Each amp offers 3-channel, 8-mode operation and varying levels of tube saturation, plus a switchable virtual tube/solid-state rectifier section. The Rectifiers provide a tremendous range of sounds that can be everything from crushingly percussive to liquid and elastic.

MESA/Boogie Mark III: This amp from 1984 is the first original 3-channel "Tri-Modal Amplifier" design. It features an amazing set of sonic sculpting tools via its original three-channel setup: Rhythm, a distinct midrange "Crunch" Rhythm and a Lead channel with independent gain and master volume controls.

MESA/Boogie Mark IV: An improvement on a classic, this amp from 1989 takes everything that made the Mark III the standard for Boogie tone in that era and makes it even better. Its three channels allow it to deliver an incredibly wide sonic array that stretches from sparkling clean tones to ultra-high-gain lead sounds that are rich with harmonics and sustain.

MESA/Boogie TransAtlantic TA-30: A decidedly British MESA/Boogie tribute. This model captures the essence of what, for MESA, was an exercise in simplicity of operation and comprehensive tonal control. It features two-channel operation and 5 distinct "Mode" voicing choices that reference several classic British and American circuits. Throw in the Gain Boost feature and two high-gain options (HI 1 and HI 2 in Channel 2), and this model covers everything from classic 60’s to crushing contemporary. Each channel also features the flexibility of 3 levels of output power. This allows for a full range of power response and character that adds yet another level of accuracy and authenticity to its preamp sounds! This amp may have been the most versatile yet simple-to-use MESA amplifier ever made, and it covers anything and everything the other models might miss due to their higher power ranges and gain structures.


In addition to these extremely popular amplifier/cabinet combos, AmpliTube MESA/Boogie also comes with new 6 stomps. There’s a Noise Filter for gating unwanted sound between riffs. There’s a Metal Wah that’s tailor-made for adding color to those righteous metal solos. There’s a Sustainer that punches up solos and allows for unreal note sustain. Obsession is a delay pedal with EQ control. Surfer is a shimmering flanger that can be used to add different modulation flavors to regular playing and soloing. And, finally, Monster Booster can be used to boost the overall signal to the amps by up to 25dB.


Like all mobile versions of AmpliTube, AmpliTube MESA/Boogie is modular - and can be enhanced via a variety of powerful in-app purchases. You can expand the single track recorder into an 8-track recorder. A waveform view can be added for DAW-style editing. The cab room can be enhanced to allow 3-D miking for cabinets with up to 2 microphones at a time (16 studio mic are available for purchase). Its looper allows for quick and easy looping of up to 4 different loops. The Loop Drummer is an essential rhythmic tool when steady drum beats are needed. And, you can improve your playing abilities with the Song/Speed Trainer section - allows for uploaded songs to be slowed down or speed up without affecting the pitch.
