Amplitube Metal is an expansion pack for IK Multimedia Amplitube. With the introduction of Amplitube Custom Shop, individual amp models in this package can be purchased separately rather than as a bundle.
IKM Amplitube is a software plug-in that can be used inside a DAW, and can also be used as a stand-alone plug-in.
AT Metal brings a collection of 'high-gain' amps to Amplitube. If you are not satisfied with the amount of drive/distortion of the amps in AT, the Metal expansion pack is a no-brainer.


I really like the amp sounds in AT Metal. However, I don't like many of the cabinet options, even though there are a lot to choose from. I almost always use the same 2-3 cabinets, which is a little bit disappointing.
I should mention though that I am not a metal guitarist. I typically play rock music so I like my amp to have a decent amount of gain, but I definitely don't take it to the extreme. Someone that plays more true 'metal' may like the cabinets better.


Amplitube Metal has a few unique high-gain amps compared to other software sims. The Randall Warhead and Peavey 5150 are really cool, and have a different voicing and saturation than the typical Marshall/Mesa-Boogie. The choice of the JMP100 is not the typical JCM800/900 and Plexi found in most amp sims, which is a nice addition. The Mesa-Boogie Rectifier amps sound good, but are also found in a lot of other software (Guitar Rig 5, Pod Farm 2, Pod HD, etc). I would have liked to see even more amps like Bogner (although he seems to be pretty cozy with Line 6) and more Peavey amps other than the 5150.
Since the release of Amplitube Metal, IKM has released amp sims of Soldano amps and Engl amps. If you want high-gain sound, these amps are a great way to supplement the AT Metal pack.
