5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it claims, but connector is fragile 30 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a very well made product that does exactly what it claims to do. Used with an iPad or iPhone and appropriate apps you can record relatively easily at surprisingly high quality levels. You can also input to other apps like oscilloscopes etc.

It is solid and quite heavy and this is one of its problems. The strain put on the connector is substantial. With the best will in the world it is impossible to guarantee that you will not pull on any of the leads going in or out of the unit. The inevitable result will be a damaged input socket on your iPad or iPhone, this will be expensive to repair!

I use mine with an iPad and my solution was to make a board to hold the iPad and the GuitarJack with an edge piece around both to keep them located and some clips over the edge to hold them in place. A stand at the back holds the whole assembly at an angle for easier viewing.

This works well and if the 1/4in jack gets a tug then the whole lot moves and the strain is taken by the mount not the connector.

Would I recommend this to a friend? Yes, I already have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guitar jack 24 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
Does exactly what it says on the box looks and feels a quality product . Did my first project on the ipad using the device for vocals. Couldn't get it to work at first but soon found that the problem was that I had set the noise gate too high so my fairly weak voice just wasn't loud enough so I simply reduced the level. Overall very pleased with guitarjack. Recommended.

This tiny device is amazing, I bought it for my husbands birthday and it has kept a guitar freak very happy, he just plugs it into his i phone thing and records all his own guitar music - it does all the things that guitar people want it to do - so he tells me :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks great, does exactly what it's supposed to do 3 Jun 2012
By STG - Published on Amazon.com
There are only two products on the market (that I know of) that provide a STEREO line input for the iPad: The Line 6 Mobile In audio interface, and Sonoma's GuitarJack audio interface. I've owned both, so allow me to compare the two...

The Line6 Mobile In is cheaply constructed in a plastic shell. Even the parts that look like metal in the picture, are just grey plastic. The Mobile In provides two 1/8'' inputs, one for a guitar (it includes an adapter cable) and another for stereo line-in. Only one input will function at a time, I believe (I purchased this purely for the stereo line-in, as I am not a guitar player at all).

The Mobile In DOES NOT WORK for stereo line-in on a new iPad using Garageband or any other audio app I wanted to use it with. Their company claims it's supposed-to, but it doesn't. The stereo input is treated as mono, defeating the entire purpose of why I bought it. Ended up returning the product since I had no faith that their company would be able to resolve the problem in a timely fashion. As I understand it, they still haven't fixed that issue.

IN CONTRAST...

The GuitarJack has solid construction and a sleek metal body. You can immediately tell it's a quality device. Its stereo input worked perfectly on the new iPad, whether it was in GarageBand or the other apps I had used. Note, you may have to configure it in one of their recommended apps first, but that's quick and easy to do. From what I understand, you can use both its 1/4'' guitar input and 1/8'' stereo input at the same time, but I haven't bothered to try that yet.

You can use the GuitarJack directly with the iPad, however you may need to remove whatever case you have your iPad in (as I did with my INVELLOP case). When using the GuitarJack this way, you will need to lay the iPad COMPLETELY flat (as in, not tilted, even a little). The other option is to use an extension cable, which you WILL want to get; even if the iPad and GuitarJack are on a perfectly flat surface, it's still too easy to accidentally disconnect the two. Sonoma markets their own extension cable for the GuitarJack, but it's pricey ($25+). Instead, I purchased a cheap, no-name iPad dock extension cable that is over a foot longer than Sonoma's, one-fifth the price, and works just fine with the GuitarJack.

One annoying thing I found was that when the GuitarJack is connected, the iPad's built-in speaker and headphone jack become disabled, and you need to use the GuitarJack's headphone output to hear *anything*. I understand the input jacks taking precedence over the iPad's built-in mic (and I understand that the iPad's built-in headphone jack can also be used to connect mics) but I really wish it didn't auto-disable the speaker, and acted more as an auxiliary headphone output instead. I wanted to be able to mic monitor without NEEDING headphones, but I usually keep headphones with me anyway, so it isn't thaaaat big of a deal.

Minus one star for making an extension cable a basic necessity (and additional purchase, where they *attempt* to rip you off) as well as the disabled speaker/headphone thing. This is an expensive iPad accessory (it costs about twice as much as the Mobile In), but it's constructed well, looks dope, and, most importantly of all, IT ACTUALLY WORKS!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Guitarjack 2 27 May 2012
By Joboy - Published on Amazon.com
Very solidly built unit, and I'm using the new ipad (ipad 3) with it. Works very well, and the sound is the best that I have heard. I also have an amp kit interface and there is simply no comparison in sound quality to the Guitarjack 2. The amp kit amplifiers and pedals sound awesome though. Sonoma, Four track and Studio track work well for recording with the Guitarjack 2.

My headphones seem to work perfectly using the iPad headphone jack, but have found the Guitarjack 2 headphone output noisy sometimes. Would really like to be able to use Bluetooth headphones, so perhaps this something that could be added as a new feature someday.

Finally, I recommend you also purchase the dock extender, as it offers more flexibility than plugging directly into the iPad.

No regrets on purchasing this unit. It's a keeper!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well designed, durable... and it works! 27 May 2012
By The Pilgrim - Published on Amazon.com
GuitarJack2 turns my iPhone and iPad2 into a excellent digital recording platform. I can connect a powered mic using one of the 1/8" inputs, a guitar in the 1/4" input, and a headset for monitoring into the second 1/8" input. The device itself is solidly built and the integration software is well designed and easy to use. It's not the cheapest input device (I own one of those, too) but it is the BEST and well worth the money if you're serious about using an iPhone or, particularly, the iPad for recording. Tip: make sure the iPhone/iPad and GuitarJack2 are on a flat surface to ensure a solid connection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best guitar interface for IOS 11 Dec 2012
By Larry Seyer - Published on Amazon.com
This is it. Doesn't get any better than this. If you care how you sound, get this. I've tried them all and this blows them all away. Use it with Amplitube or your favorite amp app and you'll be amazed.

5.0 out of 5 stars great sounds 5 Dec 2012
By taylorplayer1 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I've really enjoyed the guitarjack model 2. It's rugged and compact enough that I carry it around in my pocket a great deal of the time. I get startling good tones from both my electric guitars and the acoustic/electric ones.
I have an iphone 3gs and have to shut down all the background programs, turn on airplane mode and reboot the phone to keep the sound from crackling, but it's worth this extra step to have such a powerful creative tool. I'm sure this isn't a problem with newer hardware. It's great fun to flip through the amp and pedal combinations and find just the sound you're looking for.
