AmpliTube iRig – Complete Interface and Software Solution for Jamming
July 26, 2011 by Sharon
When an electric guitar is heavily reliant on its amplifier sets, the guitar is reduced to a mere peripheral and the whole music lovers could end up being weighed down by the many technicalities. For those who want a simpler music experience, there’s now a simple extension in the iPhone that allows guitar players to skip all the usual in-betweens and easily record and edit their music from the phone itself.
The extension includes an iRig adapter that connects the phone directly to the guitar cable. Users could forego the instruction booklet with its straight forward setup. It comes in a minimal length to prevent knotting and it comes in a size that can be slipped into a pocket. There’s also not much worries on the design of the adapter itself.
To fully access the iRig’s function, there’s an AmpliTube application that further complements the adapter as a software component. For users who want added effects such as reverb or echo, they’ll have to download them separately. Otherwise, the application readily comes with a wide variety of and functions to meet the basic requirements.
The quality of the sound can be said to be crisp although there might be some feedback from time to time. It is also very user friendly where the settings can be toggled by the musician. Not only that, there are also some music editing functions that you can work with. It may not be able to come in half the quality of its many high performing bulky cousins, but it’s definitely twice the mobility and also the convenience. After all, music goes beyond mere liking and has become a necessity for its enthusiast.
