What's new in version 5.5?

- TONEX Integration:AmpliTube 5.5 adds seamless integration with TONEX, the complete ecosystem that lets you model your own own rig and play, practice and record with thousands of ultra-realistic Tone Models of amps and pedals.

You'll find a new TONEX amplifier within the AmpliTube 5.5 gear browser, complete with a drop-down menu to explore the over 1,000 Premium Tone Models available and the growing number of user-created Tone Models on ToneNET.

Tone Models function just like other AmpliTube amp. They can be used alongside any gear models you own to build custom signal chains and save as presets for easy recall.

- New Cabinet section with VIR technology: AmpliTube 5 premieres a re-engineered Cabinet section with all-new DSP. IK's new Volumetric Impulse Response (VIR) uses 600 IRs per speaker, 1,200 IRs for a 2-speaker cab and 2,400 IRs for a 4-speaker cab, capturing a massive 3D array of mic placement options, plus all the interactions between speakers, cabinet and floor for a completely true-to-life sound. AmpliTube's movable microphones now truly shine, with an easy-to-use grid that lets you snap to a precise IR point or seamlessly blend between multiple measurements. You can now also import your own IRs and load them into AmpliTube 5 with the option to tilt or resize them, giving you total sonic read more flexibility.

- New GUI:AmpliTube 5 boasts an all-new, fully-scalable GUI to adapt to any display size, including the latest Retina displays.

- Freely Configurable Signal Chain: AmpliTube 5 features a new, completely customizable gear chain. Beyond mono & stereo, AmpliTube 5 now supports wet-dry-wet configurations and other advanced series & parallel routing.

The overall chain now supports up to a massive 57 simultaneous models across Stomps, Racks, Amps and Cabs. And setup is a breeze -- just drag & drop any model into place, to build or re-position even the most complex rigs in seconds.

- New Mixer:With the massively expanded signal chain options in AmpliTube 5, you need a better way to mix and record that sound as well. So AmpliTube 5's studio section adds a new Mixer window, letting you blend the sound of your cabinets and microphones, plus DI signal. With panning, levels, busses and 23 built-in effects, some derived from T-RackS 5, it's a powerful tool to put a final studio sheen on any track.

- New Gear:Over 130 brand new gear models, including 2 new stomps, 5 acclaimed amps, and 23 racks FX derived from T-RackS and redesigned specifically for AmpliTube 5, 2 new rooms and over 100 completely re-captured cabinets.

- Remastered classic gear: AmpliTube 5 also revisits all the original AmpliTube legacy gear, adding not only a fresh new look, but optimized internal gain structure and superior power amp - speaker interaction to maximize their realism and feel.

- New redesigned Custom Shop: Now you can simply browse the gear carousel inside AmpliTube 5 or use the available drop-down menus to demo or unlock any gear you want. The program allows multiple purchases, making it easy to get a custom chain at once. You can also easily sort by gear you own or don't own, unlock preset-specific gear and more.
