IK Multimedia StealthPlug Inc Amplitube 2 Live Reviews
for £85 i think its a lump of S*** and i will NEVER buy from this site again. the riffworks is just a demo and you can only activate the software once and as i didn\'t find this out until i installed it on my pc my family got me a laptop so i can use the software on it now i have to save up to get the recording equipment again.
I have been looking for this type of product for a while, and this looked just the job.
Software is very good Amplitube trackion and sample tank. And there appeared to be little noise when using stealthplug. It works really well.
Stealthplug driver does NOT work with 64 bit version of windows. I use XP 64 due to having a 64 bit CPU. I believe it also doesnt work with 64 bit versions of vista either, even tho the product states on the box ready for vista. I emailed IK and they said no future plans to support 64 bit (no demand for it).
Second bad point is the output, as stated in a review previous, you can\'t redirect the sound output via the soundcard (not even a ASIO compatable one).
this item on first impression and other reviews looked very good, and thats not to say its not! i will state the let downs...firstly dont buy this thinking it will work through you soundcard? it does not do this? you must have a powered speaker system or an amp handy, this is where the info on the item is vague in my opinion, there is a certain amount of hiss when playing with the product, i found this annoying a bit, other people opinions my differ, the amp models are very good and all included software is quite good, if you want to plug your earphones in for practice then its ok anything else will require patience or ignorance to gain that great sound
This is an excellent product, especially for this price range. There are some minor issues to be aware of but these shouldn\'t put you off from choosing the Stealthplug.
On the downside, the included software did not install automatically from the included CD-ROM. In addition to the Stealthplug and the Amplitube 2 software they have also included sampletank, Tracktion and a few others. Therefore you need to explore the CD to find and download all of the programs.
On the positive side, all of the programs work. Getting to grips with Tracktion to get recording is reasonably easy, just use the manual to get your settings right. Multi track recording is simple. I was up and running within half an hour. My Laptop runs Vista Home Premium, there were no issues at all.
The actual Stealthplug interface is also simple to use. I have used it directly from guitar to my Laptop, connected it to the output of my Boss GT8 and used a microphone through it too. They all worked great.
To conclude, well worth the money for home recording.
