Amplitube Metal VST Guitar Plug-in

The IM Multimedia Amplitube Metal Studio is another great vst Guitar software tone generator which is attempting to satisfy the needs of Guitarists looking for hot sounding Guitar sounds and effects.

Amplitube Metal, as normal with this type of plug-in, is able to run as a standalone program as well as a VST, RTAS or AU Plug-in. This is a very affordable loaded package – and for not a lot more – Metal can also be purchased with the StealthPlug USB Interface Cable which also includes some extra bundled software. This is the package which will be discussed here.
