About this app

***IMPORTANT: The AmpliTube UA app requires the iRig UA hardware interface to function properly. Other iRig interfaces, such as iRig 2, will not work properly with the app. For more information on iRig UA, visit***

Your guitar tone on your Android phone - A complete professional guitar & bass multi-effects processor for all Android smartphone and tablet devices

AmpliTube UA is the revolutionary free companion app to iRig UA. It lets you turn any Android device* into the ultimate mobile guitar and bass multi-effects processor. With it, you can enjoy the high-quality sonic sculpting flexibility that’s made AmpliTube the go-to app for mobile musicians. Now you can finally harness the power of AmpliTube’s massive and expandable collection of ultra-realistic virtual amplifiers, stompbox effects, cabinets and more on your Android phone, no matter what make or model it is.

AmpliTube UA is a free and comes with a complete assortment of meticulously recreated virtual versions of some of the most coveted gear on the planet. It comes with 21 pieces of gear (free for iRig UA users), that can be expanded up to 43 by in-app purchases. You get 9 effects: Noise Filter, Delay, Overdrive, Wah, Chorus, Flanger, Phazer and Octave (plus Distortion upon registration). You can then use these stomps with 5 amplifiers with matching cabinets: Lead, Clean, Bass, Crunch and Metal. You even get two microphones (dynamic and condenser) that you can use to virtually position and mike your setup. In other words, it gives you everything you need to create killer tone no matter whether you’re looking to shred like Slash and Jimi Hendrix™ or play more mellow jazz, country or folk — the possibilities are limitless. And, as if that wasn’t enough, you can also expand AmpliTube UA with a-la-carte gear and bundles from world-class brands like Fender®, Orange®, Ampeg®, Soldano® and more. There’s also exclusive content available from our AmpliTube Slash and AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ collections.

To get the most out of AmpliTube UA, you need to pair it with an iRig UA digital audio interface. Combined, the two give musicians the power to play in real-time with no audible device processing delay, a market first for the Android platform. iRig UA’s on-board digital signal processor works in conjunction with AmpliTube UA. And because all of the processing is handled by iRig UA, and not on the Android device, it’s able to provide consistent zero latency performance (down to 2ms round-trip total latency) independent of the make and model of the connected smartphone or tablet.

You can use AmpliTube UA functions in a “preview” mode when an iRig UA is not connected to the device. This allows full use of its generous collection of amplifiers, stompboxes, cabinets and microphones with the provided “dry” audio demo. However, an iRig UA is required for audio-in and guitar processing functionality.


• First real-time guitar and bass mobile multi-effects app for all Android devices
• Zero latency processing on any Android device* when paired with iRig UA
• Full rig with 3 simultaneous stompboxes, an amp with effects, a cabinet and a mic
• Comes with 9 stompbox effects, 5 amplifiers, 5 cabinets, and 2 mics
• Gear library can be expanded with branded gear from Fender, Orange, Ampeg, Soldano and more
• Enhanced presets system
• Chromatic tuner included
• Can be used without iRig UA in a fully functional mode that does not allow audio-in (a dry audio demo is provided for playing purposes)

* Compatible with Android devices equipped with Micro-USB-OTG socket that supports Host-Mode. Android 4.2 or later is required.
Android devices equipped with USB-C socket require a USB-C male to Micro-USB female adapter with data transfer capability.

The app is great. It's the iRig UA that I have problems with. It's made of cheap plastic. I had to remove my phone cover in order to get the cable to plug in. Sometimes you have to jiggle the cable to get it to work properly. For a hundred bucks they should make something a little more solid. Otherwise it sounds great. The software gets 5 stars. I've ran it through my amp into my DAW with great results. The hardware. 3 stars. Even the plastic is ok but better jacks and cable would mean it.

Garbage, don't waste your time after you install it wants $100 to use it or maybe it was 99 don't remember the exact amount but it was ridiculous. The "free demo" does not let you play your guitar through the app. It play is a sample recording and you can change the sound of the recording through the app. There are so many better apps out there that are free or at least let you get a realistic demo before you pay that kind of money. Thank you for wasting my time.

The iRig UA will allow the app to exit demo mode. The reason for this is because the iRig UA has a DSP chip which acts as the app's brain. Without this, the app will not function properly. Read more here: For more information contact us here:

This app crashes a lot on a Samsung Galaxy S20. I appreciate that the developers can't add new features to the app as it's tied to the feature set of the iRig UA DSP. However, they should really make a new build of the existing app to fix for newer androids, it would be a common courtesy for customers. Also, it would be great if IK could work with Steinberg and make the irig UA work as a direct interface for Cubasis on Android, that's more of a feature request!
