IK Multimedia yesterday (27 May) shared the promo video in which Slash explained how AmpliTube 5 helped his writing process.
“Being on the bus or my hotel room, I’ll take an idea and record it on AmpliTube and then download it and send it over to the guys,” Slash said in the video. “It’s just so damn easy to do it.”
It’s more than a matter of convenience, however – the rocker also praised the software’s sound quality. “Whatever it is, you can do it really, really quickly, efficiently and have the sound quality be excellent,” he said.
