More Gear â€” Infinite Combinations:
AmpliTube 3 contains over 160 pieces of gear, more than double the amount of other packages, including models from the most sought-after vintage collections and modern-day workhorses.

Plus, with the new AmpliTube 3 open architecture, you can add more packages as you need them, like AmpliTube Fenderâ„¢ and AmpegÂ® SVX.
More Feel â€” True Dynamic Response:
AmpliTube 3 gear models give you THE most realistic playing feel â€” not just the tones â€” but the actual dynamic response of their hardware counterparts. Nothing comes closer to the feel and touch of playing through a real rig than AmpliTube 3.
