Plus, after 180 days, we'll still need to do everything manually.

I was just thinking about that.

Feature request for @Peter - IK Multimedia

1. Preference in IK Product Manager for location you store the backups of all the sounds so if you're installing a new computer you can point to that after the 180 days.

2. While we're at it why not ask the Product Manager where you want to put your backup so it can put a copy there once it's downloaded.

Already exist. I have been using it quite a lot with this GB using all my disk space. 😋 You can even point to a network drive!

13. We will never make it...

You still up? 😲 It's getting late in the UK. 🕙 I know, you can't sleep without knowing if we're gonna make it! 😆

This was my thought also. Plus, I can't figure out the difference between 1. and 2.

Actually, I am not in the UK. I was just using that as an example. I am on the west coast of the Great White North.

This is useful. You are probably aware of this, but there are things that you can only get in Max, so ... Standard+all collections < Max.

Yup.  To get the list, deselect all the Collections that are available for purchase, then deselect the checkmark under AmpliTube 5.

BTW, here's the list of amps:

Hiwatt® DR103™ Head

Jet City Amplification 333® JCA100H™ Head Model

Jet City Amplification 333® JCA20H™ Head Model

Dr. Z Amplification® MAZ 18 Jr.™ Combo Model

Gallien-Krueger® MB150S™ Model

ENGL® Powerball™ Head Model

THD® BiValve™ Head Model

Carvin® V3M™ Head Model

Dr. Z Amplification® Z Wreck™ Head Model

A good question to ask is whether its worth going to MAX to get these components, or getting the ones you want through the custom shop.  If I had to start from nothing with this current sale and my knowledge of what I like and don't I don't know if MAX would be worth it.

AmpliTube has been my intro to these boutique amps.  I have the All-Amps Collection (2019?) on AmpliTube iOS so I've been playing around with them there, but the sound engine isn't as good as on desktop AmpliTube 5 (but I don't really know what I'm missing out on).  JCA was designed by Soldano ... don't know how close it is to SLO100, but it seems similar enough that I don't feel I'm missing out.

I've also been satisfying my boutique amp curiosity with the Plugin Alliance deals ... Suhr, Fuchs ODS (= Dumble) ... waiting for the next surprise voucher for the Fuchs Train II (Trainwreck, similar to Z Wreck).  And I've built a collection of Nembrini amps on iOS as well.

Since there's no real inexpensive incremental upgrade path to MAX (have to buy via Custom Shop), and what I have (AmpliTube 5 + all collections) covers pretty much most of the major amp families, I'm satisfied with what I have for now.

We made it to 20 freebies and an extension! Wouhou! 🥳

This will now surely go to 24 freebies. Incredible! 👍

But we must say goodbye to my fellow Great White Northerner: @Doug Rintoul. Doug has now left the list of 'guess the number of freebies' tonight. 🤷‍♂️

Thanks for participating Doug! And thanks to everyone who helped us get to 20 freebies! 21 for the price of 1!

Z-Wreck is quite a bit different than the Train II

 

Train II is based on an Express model and the Z-Wreck was a design Kenny helped Dr Z with, but is a much lower gain (closer to a Rocket style amp---though certainly NOT a Rocket as someone who has access to a real one)

Thanks for explaining the difference and the education.

In my research, I saw they were both Ken Fischer designed amps so I assumed they were similar: https://reverb.com/news/trainwreck-amps-a-history-of-ken-fischers-mythic-circuitry.

How's the AmpliTube Z Wreck implementation?  It's from 2013.

It is an honour to loose. I know I am in good company.

Well, there is less than 5000 more souls to join in before we reach the max number of freebies, or 25 for the price of 1, and @Peter - IK Multimedia breaks open the champagne! 😄Since there will be an extension to the end of October, this means less than 1250 participants needed a week to get there! I can't see this not happening!

Didn't @Peter - IK Multimedia mention something about a MIDI controller for everyone who bought in?  🤔
