IK Multimedia AmpliTube 5 with 120 new gear models, VIR and some T-RackS 5 polish!

IK Multimedia AmpliTube 5A Mars-themed teaser from Ik Multimedia raised our eyebrows earlier this week – it turned out to be the AmpliTube 5, rather than the alien invasion predicted by some of the Gearnews staff. This new version scales up the gear, the features and – hopefully – the sound quality. With Amplitube clocking up nearly 20 years, this new version looks to be a very nice upgrade for fans of IK’s flagship virtual guitar rig.

Amplitube 5 brings 129 new gear models, taking the total to over 400. It features IK’s new rely designed cabinet section that uses their VIR (Volumetric Impulse Response)¬†technology and an improved power amp / speaker cab interaction, to make it all sound more realistic. The VIR is based on¬†measuring 600 IRs per speaker of every existing and new cabinet model, for a total of 143,000 IRs. IK used its own method and while the details remain a secret IK says this will give you a massive, 3D array of mic placement options. Sounds good! Users can now also import and load their own IRs into AmpliTube 5 as well.

New User Interface

I’ve used AmpliTube since its very first version and I am thankful to see that IK has finally redesigned the user interface. The old look was getting a bit long in the tooth. AmpliTube 5 has a resizable interface, making it easier to see what you are doing. IK says its engineers have improved how you select gear, implemented drag & drop placement as well as support for one, two or three-amp rigs with up to 57 simultaneous effects. They have also updated the interface for AmpliTube Custom Shop, so I look forward to giving these new interfaces a go and comparing it with the old system.

T-RackS 5 influence

Another new aspect are the virtual racks, taken from their T-RackS 5¬†suite. That’s a nice feature and will hopefully make it easier to get a more polished tone in your virtual guitar rigs. The developers have also added a new mixer window to the 8-channel onboard DAW, plus an enhanced Looper with two simultaneous tracks along with infinite layers of sound. That feature will be great for both studio and live use. As you’d expect, AmpliTube 5 can work either as a standalone application or as a plug-in in your DAW.

Pre-Order & Pricing

IK Multimedia is offering AmpliTube 5 in four versions across all price points: AmpliTube 5 CS, AmpliTube 5 SE, AmpliTube 5 and AmpliTube 5 MAX. There is some nice introductory pricing discounts on offer for both early adopters and existing users. I would suggest you head to the IK site for more details, as there are a lot of price variations on offer, including hardware bundles with the AXE I/O and AXE I/O Solo.

AmpliTube 5 for Mac/PC will be available in the last quarter of this year and is currently available for pre-order from the link below.

RRP –¬†Free up to USD/EUR 599

Yamaha’s new THR30IIA 30-watt stereo acoustic amp: Go wireless!

The new THR30IIA from Yamaha¬†is a neat, compact 30-watt stereo acoustic guitar amp and the newest member of the brand’s popular line of THR amplifiers. This acoustic amp features wireless¬†capabilities and a host of other useful functions. If you’ve been looking for a portable acoustic guitar¬†amp with all the bells and whistles, keep reading.

Yamaha THR30IIA

I’m a big fan of the Yamaha THR amps. I own one of the older models for electric guitar, which I keep in my lounge for when I want to noodle. I also liked the earlier THR acoustic model enough to include it in my best mini practise amps roundup back in April. The¬†THR30IIA is the¬†newest model in the series¬†and¬†comes hot on the heels of the¬†Blackstar ACOUSTIC:CORE 30¬†announced earlier this week, which, at ¬£200, is significantly cheaper than this new Yamaha model.

Yamaha THR30IIA

Yamaha THR30IIA 30-watt stereo acoustic guitar amp

Effects and Modelling

This new model has the familiar metal casing used throughout the THR series and sports a 30-watt stereo amplifier with two 3.5″ speakers. That should be plenty of power and provide a decent spread of sound. You get a nice smattering of ¬†onboard effects that are well suited to an acoustic guitar including¬†compression, chorus, a studio-quality delay and a reverb.¬†But that’s not all, it also includes modelling for three microphone models: dynamic, tube and condenser, plus tone modes for nylon string guitars and a Flat setting for when you want to bypass all the extras.

You also get Yamaha’s D-PRE mic preamp on board for your vocal mic, if you want to sing and play along. The amp has a¬†1/4″ and XLR combo mic inputs, a stereo 1/8″ aux input, a headphones out, and¬†1/4″ line-level outputs. There is also a¬†MIDI input for a footswitch control.


You choose your amp models with a five-way rotary dial, then sculpt your tone further using the three-way Stereo Imager switch, three-band EQ and Tone Blend control, which adjusts how much of the EQ’d signal is blended in. There are five buttons across the top for user presets, and a button for Bluetooth connectivity lets you stream music to play along with. There’s also a tap-tempo button for time-based effects which doubles as the built-in tuner when held down.

The amp has a built-in rechargeable battery and can also operate with an optional Line 6 Relay transmitter, allowing you to play totally¬†untethered and cable-less! It’s obviously nice not to have a clutter of wires, and should make performing way more fun.

Apps, DAWs and more

You can connect to the Yamaha Rec’n’Share app, which works on both iOS and Android, or¬†adjust settings via the THR Remote app for Mac, PC and mobile devices. The amp comes with a free copy of Cubase AI for PC/Mac and Cubasis LE for the iPad. It has the usual¬†USB connectivity for recording and playback, so plugging into your DAW of choice should be hassle-free.


The THR30IIA is a lot more expensive than the Blackstar ACOUSTIC:CORE 30, but it offers a lot more too. If you need an all singing and dancing, yet compact acoustic guitar amp, this is certainly worth checking out. You can buy an optional carry case for it, the THRBG1, but I reckon you could just stick it in a regular bag and save a few quid. If it’s built as sturdy as my THR10C, then it will be pretty bomb proof anyway.

It may be a bit of an investment, but I think it offers some great benefits for acoustic players on the go. And if the demo videos are anything to go by, it sounds quite impressive. The Stereo Imaging technology and 30-watts of power should really help get a nice full sound. You can read the full amp specifications by clicking the link below.

RRP – USD 869
