Having received an iPad for Christmas I wanted to explore the world of guitar amp sims. The thought was that I could use my iPad to play some gigs rather than hauling out my full rig. I did not want to spend much at first, as this was still considered an experiment.

With that in mind, the iRig does exactly what is expected of it. However, after several weeks of using it and playing live with this rig, I started noticing how noisy this system was. It was less noisy on patches revolving around a clean guitar sound as opposed to higher gain settings, which one would expect to be the case. Unfortunately this noise requires me to use one of my FX slots in JamUp XT Pro for a noise gate, which does not remove the problem entirely, but does make it more bearable at the sacrifice of some tone and dynamics.

After doing some research, I have found that the noise in the system is coming from the iRig and is due to it's connecting to the iPad via the headphone jack on the device. In the course of researching, I have found that this is a common problem for the entry level iRig and that the higher level interfaces that use the 30pin or Lightning port do not have this issue.

I would definitely buy the iRig again. It has served me well so far. Now that I know that I want to continue working with amp sims and that they are viable for my needs, I will probably upgrade to the iRig Pro so that I can integrate a midi footswitch into my live setup. If I were not wanting to integrate that midi footswitch, then I would probably upgrade to one of the Apogee products.

As an entry level product, however, the iRig is a definite winner. Just be aware that you will have noise in your signal.

IK Multimedia tries but at the end of the day they will gaffe you off if you have a problem. This is a toy to noodle around with your guitar. Don't expect alot. Expect a toy that if you can get it to work will be fun to goof around with. My first one was dead on arrival. The replacement is working.

Best Uses

  • Jamming

Comments about IK Multimedia iRig - Audio Interface Adapter for iPhone, iPod, iPad:

I play electric acoustic. I wasn't looking for this, it found me I guess but I really like it. It works great for what I want out of it, which is something a little different to jam and enjoy/write. The sound is great, I read a LOT of negative stuff relating to the iPad app and people upset that its not comparing to Jimi's amp .. really? If you're like me .. like to plug in and play, write some tunes and enjoy jamming . .this will work great for you. Cheers.

Comments about IK Multimedia iRig - Audio Interface Adapter for iPhone, iPod, iPad:

From the time I opened the box to the time I plugged it in and played through it I lost interest in minutes. Makes me wonder if the more expensive interfaces are even worth looking into as I really though this was insulting. I used several different connects and sound quality is just not there.

      Works great.. Sounds good too.. My only complaint is i wish it had stuff for bass right off the bat. It aimed at guitarists for the most part,& the music you can play with is only the music down loaded into your phone. I wish you could listen to youtube or something while you jammed,but i started out on a guitar amp ..so with a lottle amp tweeking it was rockin.. I would buy it again and i would recommend it.. Def worth the money.
