Amplitube

Hi Everyone,

I'm looking for old versions of Amplitube so I can use my StompIO-1 pedalboard with my Mac. Can anyone help me out?

I have tried Googling and I have looked on another vintage Mac site, but am still unable to find a working copy.

Thank you in advance for any help or insight you can give.

Trying to see how this would work turned up this article on that stomp box from Music Inc. Magazine, dated July 2008.

It references Amplitube 2, which required a USB dongle. It might be very hard to get up and running, as SoS claims the dongle needed online authorization. Keeping fingers crossed that the auth server for that dongle is still online, if it does.

MacOS9Lives might have someone there who would know more about Amplitube, and if the dongle is functional without server side authentication. Otherwise, I suppose you could track down a boxed copy and try to go through IK Multimedia's official support to see if they can provide a workaround for the dongle.

Registering the pedal with IK Multimedia might unlock a copy of Amplitube for it (it supported Amplitube 2 from what I can see). They dropped the dongle with Amplitube 3, moving to online activation.

I have Amplitube Live 2, which came as a free download when I bought Riffworks from Sonoma Wireworks. No dongle required, but every so often, I have to contact IK Multimedia account and have it reactivated.

EDIT: I forgot that they made me upgrade to Amplitube 3. It's been a long time since I've used it (3 years or so) and noticed that I had some old emails that mentioned the upgrade.

I see a few sources claiming that Amplitube 3 worked on their Dual G4 Power Mac running Tiger. That might still be alright.

It still requires online activation, as stated before, but at least it isn't hardware-based online activation.

Hi everyone,

Thank you for all the ideas! I got a little busy with work since posting my original question here on MG. I tried registering the pedal with IK Multimedia but wasn't able to do so through the website. So, I used the Contact Us form over the weekend and I'm awaiting their response. Hopefully they will comeback with some useful information. I'll keep you guys posted! Until then, please keep any ideas coming! Laughing out loud

I'll check out the OS9Lives site too.

Thanks again,

RetroMacGuy

Ok, so no go with OS9lives. They said the software was too new for them.

Additionally, I received an email back from IK Multimedia directing me to use Amplitube Custom Shop, but I haven't had any luck with that and the StompIO-1.

I haven't given up yet! Smile

Thank you all for the help so far!

You might need Amplitube 3 Custom Shop. The current version may no longer support the StompIO.

Maybe support could add one to your account (it was a free product after all).

Still no go, guys. Any other thoughts?
