  • Re-designed Custom Shop: The new Custom Shop features a modern and easy-to-navigate user interface.

AmpliTube 5 is expected for release in the fourth quarter of 2020. Customers can pre-order the paid versions of AmpliTube 5 or sign up to be informed by email when the free AmpliTube 5 Custom Sho is released.

Customers who purchase AmpliTube 4 (either standalone or as part of an IK hardware package) after October 15th will automatically receive an AmpliTube 5 SE upgrade.
