when you install amplitube it installs the vst plugins in a seperate folder so check your program files and a folder called steinberg...you can open the vst plugins folder and copy all the plugins to your vst plugins folder you are using for acid.....I figured this out after a couple hours of wondering if amplitube even came with vst plugins.

I don't use Amplitube but I do use Acid quite a bit, but I don't use version 6, so I really can't help you with any direct solutions to the problem, but I can give you a workaround.

I have Guitar Rig, which is very similar to Amplitube, except that it's made by Native Instruments. I really dug their B-4 and Pro-53, so I went with Guitar Rig over Amplitube. But, same situation really. Guitar Rig can operate as a standalone program, and I'm assuming Amplitube can as well. Guitar Rig can also play .wav files, so I record my guitar track, either direct or slightly effected, load it in Guitar Rig, set up a sound, set Sound Forge to record my wave output, and tah-dah, instant modeled tracks. Draw 'em out in Acid, line 'em up and go!

Mainly I use Guitar Rig for the effects, especially that spring reverb, and the cabinet modeling. I'll use a preamp or mic an amp and end up with a sound that's -almost- there, then use Guitar Rig to tweak it there. Sometimes it works, sometimes it's a waste of time, but that's computers and creativity for ya.

Hope this at least gives you a workaround for it until you actually figure it out.
