Soldano SLO-100 Amp Head for AmpliTube 5 (macOS / PC digital download) FREE

+37 Deal Score
13,147 Views
Through March 31st, IK Multimedia has the Soldano SLO-100 guitar amp head available for free to AmpliTube 5 users (includes users of the free AmpliTube 5 Custom Shop).

Description from IK:
The Soldano SLO-100 (Super Lead Overdrive) is a true icon of high-gain tube distortion tone. The design has remained constant for over 20 years, and it is a hallmark of quality and design. It is often regarded as the finest guitar amp in the world. With the SLO-100 you have separate preamp and master volume controls along with three bands of equalization and a presence control.

How to redeem:
Want to redeem your free Soldano SLO-100? It's easy - just download and install AmpliTube 5 Custom Shop, launch the Custom Shop and use the Restore My Purchases tool. The SLO-100, plus 39 other iconic amps and FX, is yours forever as soon as you update.

FWIW, I had to log completely out and back into custom shop after restoring purchases before the SLO-100 head showed up as 'unlocked'. Not sure if that will be necessary for everyone.

Normally about $35 as a standalone purchase. To my ear, it has a full tone with lots of options to tweak the sound. Enjoy.

At first after I used the restore purchases option in amplitube the SLO-100 kept showing up in amplitube with the 'lock' icon on it.

One other thing I did was to open the IK product manager app on my pc. I clicked the hamburger menu in the upper-right corner and it showed the SLO-100 registered as a free product. after that, I logged out and back in to custom shop and it finally showed 'unlocked'. Hope it works for you.

Not working for me either. I see it on their website as being free, but tried many different things (uninstall, resign on, etc.) to no avail.

So far seems like a glorified bait and switch.

This sure did take awhile, but use the IK manager software first to download the updated version of Amplitube and the Custom Shop if possible. Logout and log back into the apps. Also it seems the Amplitube software can't seem to search the Soldano category, but when I looked mine was there.

Hope this helps.

seems like spyware after everything's installed. gross.

Edit: When you download Amplitube, it's about a 2.25 GB file. The issue is, when you install it, it takes up ANOTHER 2.5 gb.

I uninstalled everything. Yet still, I am missing 2.25gb. Where did that file go? It's not in my downloads folder and all obvious traces of this software is gone. There is 2.0 gb of useless data now sitting someone on my hard drive.

Edit edit: they create a second folder buried in Documents (by default, I presume). Was able to use a tool to find the all the latest data downloaded. Folder filled with 4.5gb files of unrecognizable bin files. How many directories does this application require??

Sticking to Rocksmith 2014 lmao. One file. Simple.

Good deal and thumbs up, but "It is often regarded as the finest guitar amp in the world..." is kinda funny. I don't think many people out there, even big amp nerds, would be able to choose any one amp as the best.

No argument here. That's all IK Marketing speak. I'm pretty happy with the sound so far though. Seems like a nice addition to my copious plugin collection.

Already have the IK Product Manager installed and using their product made this quick and easy. Thanks for the heads up!

Here's another freebie:
