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.

iRig - Plug in and play simplicity

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.

Now for the hidden features… 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 acts 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 1/4" out. Pretty cool.

AmpliTube, AmpliTube Fender and AmpliTube Slash for iOS

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 three stompbox slots daisy-chained together to add your favorite effects. You can turn on/off individual stompboxes simply by clicking the pedal button.

Play

Now for the good stuff. 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.

Next up is the Amp section with cabinet and microphone. Simply click that slot, and you can choose with ease different amplifiers from your collection. Changing a speaker cabinet is as simple as touching it on the screen, same goes for the microphone. Tap once to change to the next speaker configuration in the list and demo the sound. Easy, huh? (You can also bypass the Amp module by clicking 'Bypass'). You can now use your iOS device for live play or practice without the need for other effects boxes, amps or modelers.

Practice

We've built some pretty cool practice tools into AmpliTube iOS. These tools allow you to:

  • Play along with your favorite music from your device library
  • Isolate sections of pre-recorded material and loop them for continuous play
  • Slow down sections to learn difficult passages
  • 'No Voice' button cancels the center of the mix (where vocals and leads are typically placed) allowing you to sing or play along with the original material.

Record

AmpliTube FREE, AmpliTube Fender FREE and AMpliTube Slash come with a built-in single track recorder, expandable to 4 tracks. Immediately you can record your performance, length limited only by your device memory. When you expand the recorded to 4-track recorder with Master Effects (via in-app purchase), you'll have a complete mobile recording solution built right into your device. Create full songs and compositions right on your iOS device, and export them in WAV or MP3 formats to share.

The recorder features our re-amping function which allows you to record a riff, then go back and apply a different tone setup to get a completely different sound without having to re-record it. Once you're happy with the sound, click the 'apply' button and move to the next track.

The Master Effects section allows you to do a few things, mainly fine-tune your finished recording with EQ and Compression, but also allows you to add ambience and depth to your recordings with a master send reverb feature. Each channel has a reverb send slider that allows you to send part or all of the signal to a fully adjustable master reverb section. This gives each track it's own space to occupy in the mix and adds a tremendous amount of life and depth to your song.

We've also added some killer vocal effects to AmpliTube via the in-app purchase feature. These effects come straight from our popular VocaLive app for singers and vocalists and feature a 3-part harmonizer (Choir), Morph (vocal manipulator), Pitch Fix (pitch correction), Doubler and a De-Esser. Use the iRig Mic handheld microphone, the iRig PRE microphone preamp (allows you to use any XLR mic with your iOS device), or your built-in device mic to add vocals and sound effects to your composition.

Expand

We're adding new models of gear to mix on a regular basis. The in-app purchase feature allows you to expand your AmpliTube app when you want to. You can start with the AmpliTube FREE, AmpliTube Fender FREE or AmpliTube Slash app, then add to your collection of gear when you want.

    The iRig is basically an analogue adapter which splits the audio in/out of an ios device's headphone socket to let you plug in a line-in device like an electric guitar.

    Pretty much plug and play, though you need one of many guitar amp/effects apps available to get it all working. (The maker's own app is called Amplitude of which there are both paid for and free versions.)

    Don't expect a sonic masterpiece however. There is a lot of floor noise for a start which you can dampen with effects, but at the expense of sound quality. If you like a dirty grungy sound that won't bother you much though! Despite that, it is a lot of fun especially with all of the sounds and effects the apps give you, and for basic practising it's nice to have if you get it cheap enough. (I got mine new from Amazon for £13). I don't think you would be able to do serious recording with it though.

    If you're looking for something more high end, with no floor noise go for the digital versions, which input the sound via the 30 pin/lightning port. Expect to pay a fair bit more for these though.

    I bought an iRig with the aim of getting some decent quality guitar parts into GarageBand on my iPhone. I'd read the comments about background hiss and, yes, the unit does have a quite a lot. Some of it you can filter out with GarageBand's noise gate and the rest you can sort of drown out in the mix. Hiss I can live with and work around but what makes the iRig pretty useless is the presence of high frequency pops and clicks it produces. You just can't get rid of them and you can hear them over pretty much everything else. I returned the iRig and got the Apogee Jam instead. It's £80 but the sound is incredible and noise free, as it has an analogue-to-digital converter and uses the iPhone's dock connector instead of the headphone/mic socket. It also comes with a USB cable so you can use it with a Mac or PC. So you get what you pay for and something that works beautifully, which is not the case with the iRig, I'm afraid.

    Not a bad piece of kit, but does have quite a lot of background hiss when you're not actually hitting the strings.
    The noise gate can be put in line, but it kills all the top end & sound all gets a bit muffled.

    Still, it's a good gadge even if a bit overpriced for what amounts to an adapter cable.

    I bought the iRig to try out plugging an electric guitar into an ipad (ipad 2 to be specific), and it achieves what it is designed to do with ease.

    One end plugs into the headphone socket of the ipad while the other end has 1/4 inch socket for plugging the guitar cable into (not included). It also has a 3.5mm socket for plugging in headphones/speakers.

    I downloaded the Free Amplitube app, plugged the iRig in and the guitar, and was away. First impressions were good. Was very easy to setup and start using. There is a bit of noise from using the iRig, which if you are just using it to practice with is fine.

    I would recommend trying out some of the other amp modelling apps available to see the differences in tone though. The iRig worked flawlessly with all the ones I tried though which is good.

    If you are looking to use the ipad for recording or performing then I would use one of the digital connectors, but if you just want something to practice with, or just starting out then this is a great product and would highly recommend.

    I received my i-Rig on Friday and have just spent an entire weekend playing through it.

    Installation was easy, just plug your guitar in one end, put the other end into your iPhone (still saving up for an iPad) and stick some headphones in and it works, that's it! (and no batteries required) I've got the Mac version of the amplitube software so I knew what to expect in the App. It is surprisingly good sound quality and there isn't the slightest touch of any signal delay (latnecy) when you play.
    I'd already download the free App a few weeks back but once I started using it with the irig I grabbed the full one. The presets they supplied are pretty good and cover most areas that you'd want, but I've overwritten them all with my own ones now.

    I'm going to get a stereo cable to so I can connect it direct to my guitar amp (Marshall DFX30 combo) and stop having to drag around all my pedals.

    All in all very pleased with it. What they really need to do now is add some kind of recording facility. Then it will do virtually everything I need!

    regards

    Barry (Dr Strummer)

    I bought this to use with my acoustic guitar which has a Seymour Duncan Woody acoustic pickup. It was OK but the acoustic setup was producing a very weak signal which meant that I had to turn the Input/Output gain up so high in apps like AmpKit and Amplitube that I then got a lot of background noise. I then ended up researching a whole bunch of better quality alternatives to the iRig (including the iRig HD and the Ampkit Link HD). They all seemed to compare favourably on reviews so I emailed the support teams for all of them explaining my problem. The first and by far the most helpful response was from Apogee and I'm now the proud owner of an Apogee JAM which works brilliantly. My daughter (who has an electric guitar) now has my iRig which she's entirely happy with. In conclusion I'd recommend the iRig if you're just looking for a cheap way of connecting your electric guitar to your iPad but if you're a bit more serious (or are using an acoustic sound hole pickup) then I'd strongly recommend the Apogee JAM.
