AmpliTube Metal is a virtual guitar processor, based on AmpliTube 2 software. It is aimed for heavy metal music style guitarists. There are 5 modules: tuner, stomp pedal board, amp, cabinet with microphone, rack effects. It is possible to use 12 pedal, 2 amps, 2 cabinets, 2 microphones, 8 rack effects concurrently.
