It’s well known that we are fans of IK Multimedia’s AmpliTube modeling software. With that said we were delighted to see that Amplitube is selling their beefy set of Orange amp and cab models as one package for AmpliTube. Orange amps are one of our favorites so we had to give some of the certified digital amp and cab models a try. Below you can listen to a couple samples we recorded, check out the settings we used inside the software, and view the press release. Enjoy!
We recorded one little guitar ditty and used it on two of the Orange amp models. The first sample was using the Orange Thunderverb 200 head going through a PPC 4x12 cab. A dynamic and Condensor mic were both right in the center of the cab.

Next is the same guitar lick through the Orange OR120 head going through the PPC 4x12 cabinet.

IK Multimedia Releases AmpliTube Orange
The definitive collection of Orange Amps and Cabinets for Mac/PC
IK Multimedia — the industry leader in guitar/bass amp-and-FX modeling software — is proud to announce the AmpliTube Orange, a complete set of 17 officially certified models of Orange amps and cabinets for AmpliTube 3 (standalone/plug-in). First introduced during London’s “swinging ‘60s” era, Orange amps are renowned for their warm and luscious tube tone and characteristic crunch. IK is the only company to offer models with Orange’s official certification, and every guitarist, engineer and producer will want to own this definitive collection.
“We work closely with the IK engineers and programmers to ensure the quality and accuracy of the sound,” says Orange founder and CEO Cliff Cooper. “There is a lot of software out there that claim to give the Orange sound, but they don’t even come close. With IK we can sit down together and nail the Orange sound.”
AmpliTube Orange features models of 7 amp heads, 9 cabinets, and 1 combo, and offers a wide variety of authentic tube tone, great for screaming leads, fat power chords, chunky rhythm parts, smooth bass lines, and much more. No matter what the genre, users will find plenty of killer amp tones in this collection to go with their music.
Amps include the Tiny Terror, a 15 W head with a two-stage preamp (IK modeled the point-to-point, hard-wired edition); the Dual Terror, which can emulate the Tiny Terror or switch to the ultra-crunchy “Fat Channel”; the OR 50 and OR 120 heads, which each have the unique HF Drive control for increased presence and gain; the powerful Thunderverb 200 head, which can be used for either guitar or bass; and the versatile Rockerverb 50 MKII. The AD-30TC is a 30 W, Class A combo amp.
The cabinets can be mixed and matched with the amp heads — or any other amp in a user’s AmpliTube 3 collection — to create a huge range of cool custom sounds. The cabinets cover a wide range of configurations, and include models of the 1x12 PPC112; the 2x12 PPC212 Open-Back, PPC212, and AD30TC; the 4x12 PPC412; the 4x10 OBC410, the 8x10 OBC810; and the 1x15 OBC115.
All the Orange models are also available à la carte in the AmpliTube Custom Shop, along with the rest of IK’s huge collection of amp, cabinet, effect, and mic models. The Custom Shop is integrated into AmpliTube software and plug-ins, and offers a “Try Before You Buy” feature, which lets users download a fully functioning version of any model and audition it for 72 hours before purchase.
