That's not surprising with a proper audio interface. Basically, the audio interface is going to do one job at a time, so your latency etc is as low and efficient as possible.

However, there is a FAQ to help you get interfaces like AXE I/O to work with AmpliTube/etc and your system sound: https://www.ikmultimedia.com/faq/index.php?id=1236

Thanks again, Peter. But using asio4all it's worse than AXE asio, right? I mean about latency and quality sound...

That FAQ has worked for others without issue to achieve what you are looking to do, I don't think it will be noticeable. However, when recording full songs etc and not playing along with system sounds I'd definitely stick with the purpose-built AXE I/O driver.

Dear IK Multimedia,

I've been using Amplitube in Windows since version 3. I've been using Amplitube iOS a bit longer. I owned the first version of the iRig. I bought an iRig Stomp I/O almost a year ago. And today, I got an Axe I/O. In all this time, I've not heard or felt Amplitube the way it does running through the Axe I/O. All latency issues are resolved. The weird and annoying frequency is all but eliminated around 8kHz. Everything feels solid. I did some research about JFET preamps and can definitely hear a difference, for the better, in JFET over pure, albeit a VERY subtle difference.

The control panel is a feast for the eyes and makes getting an -18dB signal into the device TRIVIAL.

All the amps sound and feel different, now. They feel real. They feel solid. I had no idea what I was missing before, using all assortment of audio interfaces. I was convinced all the ads and reviews were, at least, a littel hyperbole. They're not.

Thank you for these exceptional tools.

Yours truly,
Jonathan Townes

I've used Amplitube in some form or another on all my music releases since 2012. But this is the first time I've REALLY felt the power! No need to use Bias, AxeFX, Helix or Kemper.....

I'm in heaven. Might be time to make a trip to Italy to say thanks!!!!!

Yours truly,
Jonathan Townes

Is the AXE I/O Guitar Audio Interface it just an audio interface that connects to the computer, or can it also be used only as a guitar processor that connects through the line-in of other audio interface like my Antelope' or straight to the mixer in live situation?

Hello,
I'm looking for a audio interface for my live gigs.
I play on electric and electro-acoustic guitar, iPad with Bias Fx and Amplitube to PA.
AXE I/0 is a good choice ?
Thanks :-).

It is meant to connect to a computer as an audio interface. You may be able to get creative with the amp out but it still wouldn't be purpose-built as a standalone/DI for what you mention.

AXE I/O is not an iOS audio interface, it is built for Mac/PC. You may want to look at our large line of mobile interfaces or compare them at https://www.ikmultimedia.com/myinterface/
