Excellent!
Kleisthenis, 16.05.2021
Perfect combination of hardware and software, amazing sounds from Amplitube 5. The JFET preamp and the tone shaping Z KNOB are the best features of AXE I/O. AMP OUT takes this audio interface to another level. Highly recommended : )

Great product
ccaru, 10.03.2021
I returned a previously ordered AXE Solo + Amplitube 5 bundle in favor of this one, mainly for the fact that this one is bundled with Amplitube Max. Everything works great. I remove one star from the features for the following reason: In the Solo, the two inputs (Guitar on the front and line in at the back) work independently as two separate sources, so it's effectively a two input interface. I was expecting that the big brother works in the same way, effectively giving 4 independent inputs, but the AXE I/O differs from the solo in that for each input you can either use the front OR the back but not both together. Effectively this means that the only thing you get more than the solo is that both inputs can be guitar inputs or line inputs. The other thing is that the z-tone, JFET and Active/Passive selectors are for both guitar inputs simultaneously.
Effectively, the only thing you gain with this is that you get two sets of outputs at the back and the tuner (which is indeed useful). To me, the preset selector is fiddly and doesn't really have a purpose.
Since this bundle costs less than the Solo + Upgrade to Max, it's still a no brainer, provided that you are after the max version.

Il est celui que je voulais...
Teerex, 05.03.2021
Je cherchais une solution facile pour pouvoir jouer dans tous les styles tout en me familiarisant avec l'utilisation du matériel guitare. Je voulais également un produit qui n'occupe pas beaucoup de place chez moi et puisse être transporté facilement. L'axe I/O associé à Amplitube est une solution parfaite pour remplacer un PodHd500 plus encombrant. L'installation des logiciels s'est faite sans problème aucun et la possibilité d'utiliser 10 fois le logiciel sur 10 appareils différent est une bénédiction si on possède plusieurs ordinateurs fixe et portable (mais aussi en cas de plantage, on ne perd pas tout).
Je regrette juste le manque de notice en français et de clarté pour les possibilités de branchements lorsqu'on n'est pas ingénieur du son (mais ceci semble récurent dans le monde de la guitare où il vaut mieux être bon électronicien que musicien). Je n'ai pas encore essayé en profondeur tous les logiciels qui accompagnent l'offre mais ils fonctionnent tous parfaitement. Bref très content de mon achat. Cerise sur le gâteau, le service par Thomann est un must.
