Best-in-show DSP

AmpliTube X-TIME leverages IK’s latest technologies for hyper-realistic emulations of real-world gear. The state-of-the-art DSP onboard offers 16 high-end algorithms, while a special X-MODE opens additional infinite-feedback effects. All combined, X-TIME delivers amazing clarity to the stage with the realism and response that users love about AmpliTube 5.

16 high-end algorithms

A classic tape echo with wobble effect that can be controlled and manipulated for experimental lo-fi echo repeats, bringing extra creativity to any playing. It features all the typical tape echo characteristics and nuances to bring a real tape sound under your feet.
IK’s Tape Echo recreates a modern echo sound with additional modulation controls over depth and speed to generate movement in the delay repeats, while maintaining all the typical characteristics that make the tape echo sound so sought-after.
This analog delay is harmonically rich and can be pushed to add color and the characteristic saturation of console preamplifiers, which blends perfectly with the direct sound coming from your instrument. Its sound can be shaped even further with its high-pass and low-pass filters.
A crystal clear digital delay sound, perfect for a high-fidelity wet signal. It also features a doubler mode to add width to delay tails, a great solution to widen up any sound and fill the entire stereo field.
This delay is designed to provide the perfect moving ping pong. The delay repeats left and right. In addition to the standard ping pong pattern, it also features another mode for panning the repeats Left-Center-Right and add a groovy “circular” effect.
This is the perfect model to find inspiration. It features 16 different delay patterns to experiment with and find new rhythmic ideas. In addition to standard delay repeats, the last 8 patterns also feature reversed repeats to really bring any line to the next level.
Two delays in one that can be set in series or in parallel to have an amazing stereo sound. The second delay reacts on the first one, but with independent mix, feedback and time that is expressed in ratios of the fist delay’s time.
Amazing reversed repeats that create wonderful delay tails. In addition to the reversed repeat, a non-reversed repeat can be blended in to maintain the groovy part of the delay pattern.
This is an advanced ping pong delay effect. The delay sound is sent to a reverb that can be modulated. Also the second tap of the ping pong pattern can be reversed to really get a very custom sound.
Gentle and ambient swell delays to cream up slow lines. The swell effect has independent time and depth so it can be synced with the delay or pushed crazier to un-synced rates. It features a sidechain mode to always track your playing and swell at the right time.
A delay that makes it possible to have huge amounts of wet signal and feedback while retaining the dry signal focused on top by ducking down the delayed signal every time the dry signal is played. The release can be tweaked independently to add both slow and fast rises.
A delay that pitches up or down from the original tone to create pitched effects in the repeats. It features two pitched notes to get a double-pitched effect and create a wall of lines in the delay by easily using one finger.
A delay that harmonizes up or down from the original tone to easily create delayed chords by playing just one note, thanks to its double harmonator. Harmonize any solo part by adding a delayed second or third harmony that follows your lead.
Get dirty with this saturated and distorted delay for edgy repeats and aggressive tails. It also features a phaser with independent speed and mix to really find the perfect grit and dirtiness in the delay lines.
Bring back the ’50s with this incredible slap back delay, which also features a modulated filter to move your slap backs in the stereo spectrum to transform this classy sound into a modern delay effect.
This delay is full of lush and never-ending tails. The delay is sent to a flanger and then to a shimmer with a customizable pitched voice to get very modulated and ethereal in any shape of form. This creates very modern delay trails great for ambient sounds.
