IK Multimedia AmpliTube iRig Guitar Bass Interface For iPhone iPod Touch & iPad
Guitar interface adapter turns your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad into the mobile guitar and bass sound studio
Imagine carrying your entire guitar or bass rig around in your pocket. When IK Multimedia say entire, IK Multimedia mean tuner, pedalboard, amp head, cabinet, microphone and 4 track recorder. That's a lot to fit into your pocket, but now you can thanks to the AmpliTube iRig.
The iRig is a revolutionary product that allows you to connect your guitar/bass to your iOS device. From there, your signal travels through the wonderful world of the AmpliTube iOS software to give your guitar sound life and meaning. To use the iRig, you simply plug the 3.5mm TRRS end into the headphone jack of your iOS device. Then plug your guitar into the 1/4" jack using a standard guitar cable. To monitor your sound, plug your headphones/line out into the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iRig. That's all there is to it. Now you're ready to Jam.
You'll have at your fingertips the sound and control up to 4 recombinable simultaneous stompbox effects + amplifier + cabinet + microphone just like a traditional guitar or bass stage rig! Plus, you get all kinds of cool extras like a riff learner, music player and recording studio.
The new iRig interface adapter is the easiest way to get your instrument's signal into iPhone/iPod touch/iPad. It features a standard 1/4" instrument jack, a standard 1/8" (3.5mm) headphone out jack, and the iOS standard 1/8" TRRS jack for input on your iOS device. All you have to do is make your connections, then launch AmpliTube iOS or your favorite guitar/recording app and you're ready to go. The iRig is the ideal companion not only to the mobile AmpliTube series of apps, but also works with any other recording, processing or tuning app. Plus, you can also use the iRig with line level signal sources such as synthesizers, keyboards or mixers.
If you have a newer Mac computer, you can use the iRig as an audio interface for it. The newer Mac models feature a headphone jack that act as a headphone/microphone input for headsets. This means that you can also use your iRig with your Mac laptop or desktop machine to take advantage of the higher processing power of your machine and you don't need an additional audio interface to use it. Simply plug the iRig into your headphone jack, plug your headphones/line out into your iRig and you've got a fully functioning audio interface for guitar/bass/keyboards, or any other instrument with a 14" out. Pretty cool.
Download the AmpliTube FREE, AmpliTube Fender FREE or AmpliTube Slash app from the iTunes App store. Plug in your guitar and headphones via the iRig and launch the app. Immediately you'll see something very familiar, a complete rig. AmpliTube iOS recreates your entire guitar/bass signal chain in your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad. At the top of the screen, you'll see the navigation bar for your rig. This is where you select the module to modify.
Click on a stompbox module slot and you can add a stompbox effect to your signal chain. There's a small navigation list of available effects directly under the navigation bar. Simply click on an effect name to load it into the slot. Swipe left and right to access all the available stompbox effects in your app. The signal flows from left to right and you can reposition effects in the chain to experiment with different textures and sounds. You get 3 stompbox slots daisy-chained together to add your favorite effects. You can turn on/off individual stompboxes simply by clicking the pedal button.
