Best DAW for Amplitube 5

Postby chakk19 » Thu Jun 03, 2021 5:52 pm

Love Amp5 Max, but it is unusable in Garageband due to latency issues.
Yes, I have put in tickets twice with IKM Support and, NO, I have not gotten any responses.

I know I am not the only one experiencing this issue with Amp5 and Garageband and it is frustrating. All these great tones and I really can't record anything with them at this time...

With that in mind, would like to know from as many people as possible,
which DAWs work well with Amplitube 5?

Need something for a Mac.

Looking forward to responses!

Please see this set of posting guidelines which explain what to do if you have a ticket you are not happy with: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=19505

They will reply, and you can also bump your ticket any time by replying to the ticket confirmation. But please read the link above and I'm sure you can get some help.

Especially because AmpliTube 5 does work with GarageBand and latency likely has nothing to do with AmpliTube 5 and more to do with audio/audio interface settings.

As far as DAWs go, there's no one size fits all or "best for xx software". I have preferences but that's due to what I started with, what I have been required to work with when working on or collaborating on projects, and other factors. For me, Cubase is king with Pro Tools as a necessary tool but it is an excellent DAW, followed by Reaper but honestly I mostly just test new installations with it, and sometimes mixing with Harrison Mixbus for the "console feel" (plus I love the sound of their hardware consoles).

I have not seen anyone post success with Garageband. Do you have any suggestions for me based off the following:

MacBook Pro, 16GB DDR3
iRig HD 2 (even updated firmware on this)
Amplitube 5 Max
Garageband Ver. 10.4.3

With all other programs and apps on computer closed, everything works great for about 10-15min and then I get that split-second latency. I have seen comments regarding lowering the buffer size of Amp5. I can do that when the software is opened as a stand alone but, when used as a plug-in within Garageband, I do not have that option.

One question is this: If I open Amp5 as a stand-alone, set buffer to 128 or 64, then close, will that buffer selection be used when it is next opened as a plug-in within Garageband?

Needless to say, I have tried lowering buffer size and I still get the latency.

I am not a GarageBand user but AmpliTube 5 is known to run in it. One of the artists in the recent preset giveaways used GarageBand exclusively to create all of their presets. I'm sure IK Support can get you up and running.

Logic Pro X is my personal favorite. It does everything and comes with tons of plugins, virtual instruments, and a drummer. For $199, it's hard to beat.

I've added A LOT of IK products because they are awesome, but Logic Pro X comes with everything you need to produce pro sounding tracks.
