AmpliTube Band-in-a-Box Demos

With the release of Band-in-a-Box for Windows Version 2012 we began including the Guitar Amp Simulator "AmpliTube." In addition, there are hundreds of "Direct Input" guitar and bass RealTracks available. These are RealTracks instruments that were recorded with an unamplified ("direct input") signal, allowing you to customize the sound by adding your own effects with AmpliTube.

There are a couple of ways to do this: (1) You can load a Band-in-a-Box style or demo song from the StylePicker that is already set to use AmpliTube (type the word "AmpliTube" in the search filter). Or, (2) you can add AmpliTube effects yourself to any song - select a Guitar RealTracks that has Direct Input available.

About the demos

The Amplitube demos are split up into two sections.

  1. The first section has various Direct Input RealTracks guitars & basses being used in actual Band-in-a-Box songs. For each of these examples, there are demos of the same song using AmpliTube, and with the original sounds (the original shipping sounds, not the Direct Input files). Song demos using Direct Input RealTracks >>
  2. The second section has demos of just single guitar or bass RealTracks by themselves, no other instruments, using the AmpliTube presets. ALL of the Band-in-a-Box Amplitube presets are demoed here. For those, there are links to listen to the instruments using Amplitube, and then there are links to listen to the unprocessed Direct Input files. Individual Direct Input RealTracks using AmpliTube presets >>
    Note: The styles, demo songs, and presets are shipped with Band-in-a-Box, so you should have them as long as you have Band-in-a-Box 2012 build 349 or higher (Download latest update patch). You can find the Styles in the
    "Styles with AmpliTube"
    category in the StylePicker. The demo songs are found in:
    \bb\RealTracks - Demos\Direct Input Guitars and Amplitube
    .
    Or you can Download all our AmpliTube styles, demos, and presets here. Download This requires Band-in-a-Box 2012 or higher.

In this video we show you how to install and set up the AmpliTube VST plugin. Use this Guitar Amp Simulator to customize the "Direct Input" RealTracks.

The signal is then split and sent to the American Tube Clean 2 amp (with a vintage open back 1x12 cabinet) and the Solid State Bass amp (with a 1x15 vintage bass cabinet). The tone has a modest amount of gain and rapid tremolo for dramatic effect.

AmpliTube Demo With original RealTracks tone [ Show wma & m4a links ]

This demo features the 70s Soul RealTracks styles. The two electric guitars load the direct input variations, and apply two different Amplitube presets: 'Low Gain Studio' and 'Underwater Lounge'. The variation of the piano in this particular realstyle features a real acoustic piano, with the notes being duplicated on synth. The drums in this variation have an added percussion layer also.

DI Instrument used:
Guitar, Electric, Rhythm Soul70sBrightA-B Ev16 100

Amplitube preset: Low Gain Studio.
The Low Gain Studio preset uses a Compressor stomp box routed through the American Tube Clean 2 amp and a vintage open back cabinet with four ten inch speakers. The tone creates a very open feeling, as if the amp was recorded with a stereo pair of microphones at a long range. A small amount of gain is added for character.

Amplitube preset: Underwater Lounge.
The Underwater Lounge preset starts with a chain of stomp boxes: Compressor, Autowah, Flanger, and Graphic EQ. Next in line is the Solid State Bass preamp and a vintage 2x12 closed back cabinet. The signal is captured by a large diaphragm condenser mic and routed through a Parametric EQ rack unit. The result is an 'underwater' loungy tone that is perfect for a special song that requires something different.

AmpliTube Demo With original RealTracks tone [ Show wma & m4a links ]

This demo features the "SouthernRock" RealStyle, with electric bass from RealTracks Set 124, both electric and acoustic guitars from Set 43, and the RockSouthernEv^ RealDrums style from RD Set 21. The sound is rounded out by including pop B3 organ from RT Set 47. The electric guitar uses the direct input variation, and the 'Clean and Dirty Mix' Amplitube preset is added. The bass plays mostly half notes at the first half of the bar, followed by a staccatto 8th & dotted quarter. This basic groove is then embellished, and locks in beautifully with the drums & other instruments.

One amp has a very high gain sound while the other uses a cleaner tone. Together, they create a hybrid sound that almost sounds like two guitars playing the same part.
