Show-stomping DSP inside
AmpliTube X-DRIVE leverages IK’s latest technologies for hyper-realistic emulations of real-world gear. The state-of-the-art DSP onboard offers 16 high-end models, while a special X-MODE opens additional signal boosting features. Using 4x oversampling with 192kHz internal processing, X-DRIVE delivers amazing clarity to the stage with the realism and response that users love about AmpliTube 5.
