AmpliTube Brian May

AmpliTube Brian May for Mac/PC A special guitar, one-of-a-kind gear, unmistakable sound. Brian May's guitar tone has powered some of the biggest rock anthems the world has ever heard. His intricately-layered harmonized leads, muscular rhythm guitar, and sweet clean tones blazed a path for rock guitarists, proving that rock music can have both brains and brawn.

Available in a convenient desktop app and plug-in for your DAW, AmpliTube Brian May carefully replicates his rig, including 2 amps, 3 cabinets, and 5 stompbox effects, all modeled with the supervision of May himself.

We used our latest Dynamic Interaction Modeling to deliver the highest level of ultra-realistic sound when modeling Brian's gear. The product of 20 years' experience modeling analog gear, DIM models the behavior of EVERY component in the circuit all the way down to its smallest nuance and character. IK models have set the industry standard evidenced by our co-branding recognition from the most influential partners in the industry such as Fender, Ampeg, Orange, Soldano and many more. Applied to Brian May's rig, the result is the same sound and feel you'd get from the real gear as he used in the recording studio and live in concert.
