The iRig by IK Multimedia The iRig is a masterpiece of simplicity. You plug it in to the iPad and it works. No tweaking anything – it does exactly what it claims to do – turns the ipad or iphone into a pretty authentic replication of hardware guitar effects pedals. Its probably best suited for practice and songwriting, particularly if your song writing leans heavily on guitar tones. Plug in your guitar, slip on a set of headphones and start improvising – in no time you’ll find yourself tweaking sounds that are amazing. It requires a purchase of the Amplitube software for around 15 bucks – so you’re talking about a 50 dollar investment at the end of the day. But if you want to have the capability of sitting in your living room and wailing without disturbing anyone around then this is it.
Awful sound quality — Apogee Jam is much better This is just an analog adapter for the built-in analog mic on the iPhone and iPad and consequently sounds awful. Thin and noisy and overpriced for what it does. Mine sits in the drawer unused. The Apogee Jam by contrast is a dedicated analog to digital converter that delivers better, more solid, much less noisy guitar sound to compatible apps. Amplitube software on the iOS is stuck using the poor quality iRig interface. Others more modern iOS architecture software like GarageBand can use the Apogee Jam. Check the software you want to use is compatible with the interface you intend to purchase.
Rockin’ Mobile Great little device to listen to your guitar or bass guitar through your headphones or speakers. Clearer than the amp I own for the bass guitar!!!
