Amplitube: Playing with the Output Section

How does changing the output of an amp change its sound?

Any guitarist knows that 6L6s, solid state, and EL34 amps each have their own sound.  One of the cool things about Amplitube is that it allows you to switch out the output section of your amp on the fly.

Let’s take it with a grain of salt.

I’m not going to make the argument that this software is a perfect replication of what a Fender Deluxe Reverb would sound like with a set of 6L6s in it.  What I will argue is that you can find a nice guitar sound with this software, and playing with the output section will affect the sound coming out of your speakers.  Play around with it enough and you will find something nice.

So how does Amplitube react to you switching the output section?

I did a short video playing with the output section of the American Vintage D model of Amplitube (my personal favorite in the software.)  This video illustrates some of the different sounds that you can get with different settings.
