The iRig guitar and bass interface adapter for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad allows guitar and bass players to plug their instruments directly into the headphone/microphone input jack on their mobile Apple device and access the new world of mobile guitar and bass tone—AmpliTube for iPhone.
iRig features ¼-inch jack mono instruments input with hi-Z impedance adapter; 1/8-inch mini-jack stereo output can be connected to headphones, amplifiers and powered speakers; it is compatible with iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4, iPod Touch second and third-generation, iPad; ultra-low latency (down to 128 samples) for real-time playing with AmpliTube; feedback cancellation and noise filter available in AmpliTube; and works with any other apps like tuners, recorders, etc.
In the app, the user's signal chain can comprise up to three simultaneous stompbox effects, plus amplifier, cabinet and microphone, all reconfigurable with the touch of a finger. Choose from 11 stompbox effects (including fuzz, distortion, overdrive, delay, wah, envelope filter, chorus, flanger, noise filter, phaser and octave), five amps (clean, crunch, lead overdrive, modern hi-gain and bass), five cabinets and two microphones to create your custom portable rig.
A dedicated iPad version of AmpliTube app is also expected to be available soon.
