Any guitarist, bassist, or string instrument aficionado knows how quickly they can drain their wallets on buying the latest amps and effects. But in the modern digital age, musicians no longer have to fork over thousands upon thousands of dollars to lock in their signature sound — it can all be done through a smartphone! Introducing Deplike, a robust guitar amp and effects emulation app for Android and iOS built to make guitar gear more affordable and accessible for everyone.
Deplike is a true-to-life amp and effects emulation application designed to give guitarists complete mobility without sacrificing on sound quality and features. It claims to be one of the best digital substitutes for analog equipment on the market, providing high-quality, hyper-realistic audio and real-time audio processing that puts it on par with more expensive amps and effects pedals. Not only that, but since Deplike's offerings are modeled after some of the most iconic amps throughout history, it'll sound like your favorite gear, too.
The app is equipped with up to 21 guitar pedals and 15 guitar amps that can be accessed via an in-app purchase (more on that below). If you're not sure you're ready to put money down quite yet, you can still access 4 free amps and 2 free pedals without paying a dime. Deplike also comes loaded with features musicians would expect, like a tuner, metronome, backing track, and a virtual guitarist that allows players to hear and sample presets. Players can even save their favorite presets, share them via social media, and access any of the 25,000+ presets that have already been made by the Deplike community.
The developers tell us it's the only amp emulation app of its kind that supports USB audio interfaces on Android, not to mention it completely eliminates Android's audio latency issues by utilizing its own USB driver. To aid in this endeavor, the team at Deplike developed their own audio engine Nefi, a solution that allows Deplike to seamlessly work with USB and analog audio interfaces with ultra-low latency.
