    Why does this book exist?

    Amplitube is a simple enough product to begin with, it hardly seems necessary to purchase a book to understand it. Most everything you need to know is in the products documentation or online. To compound the problems with this book, IK Multimedia's Custom Shop introduces new capabilities for this app every month - none of which are accounted for here.
