AmpliTube 5 Max vs AmpliTube 5 Max v2

Postby KoOkster23 » Tue Nov 07, 2023 8:20 am

Hi. I purchased AmpliTube 5 Max in March 2023 and all the X-Gear pedals (that is, the digital versions) are padlocked. I see there's now a v2 version that apparently includes those pedals.

I'm confused, because I thought all the X-Gear pedals were included in the Max package, but they've always remained locked for me. I'm now running version 5.7.1.

Could you please tell me, were the X-gear pedals included in the version onsale back in March? I don't know when the v2 version was released.

Is it the case that I can only access the digital versions of the X-gear pedals by upgrading to AmpliTube 5 Max v2? If so, is it possible to upgrade to the v2 version at a reduced cost, or would I have to buy the entire v2 app?


(EDIT) I think I've now found the answer to my question in another forum thread from September. As I understand it, I'd have to buy the v2 version from scratch. Please let me know if that's not the case.

The X-GEAR virtual pedals and AmpliTube MESA/Boogie 2 were added to AmpliTube 5 MAX v2. So you'd need to upgrade to AmpliTube MAX v2 to get all of those, it is on sale for $/€79.99 right now so that would be paying $/€79.99 - less than the price of just AmpliTube MESA/Boogie 2 by itself) for just under $/€300 worth of gear.
