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.

    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.

    It's an alright device. forget using the accompanied app. Luckily it was a "deal of the day" when I bought it. I wouldn't spend more than I did for it. For amateur recording on garageband, it works decently

    I'm a broadcaster and use this to take the mixer feed into the I-Phone to use as an internet device for football games. The line level makes this the ideal box for that application.

    Good inexpensive addition to my Ipad 3. I use it mostly for recording guitar/bass into the Beatmaker 2 app. I just really started messing around with it but I was pleasantly surprised with the sound quality that I heard from audio recorded with this compact device.

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

    It was almost given away in a stupid deal of the day, and I can see why. Every effect from different amps to effects pedals costs an additional fee to download. At the highest volume levels I could still barely hear the guitar through headphones, and it was distorted when I wanted it clean. Also at medium sound level, which was barely audible but allowed for a cleaner tone, the device introduced a background buzz.

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

        I bought this to plug into my iPad and practice the bass along with songs our band is playing. The free app "amplitude" was a bit time consuming but well worth it. I can put all the songs from our set list in one place. Amplitude will even let me cut out the voice so I can hear the instrumentation better. The loop feature allows me to mark sections of songs that I need to work on and repeats over and over. I play it through a Fender G-DEC and it sounds fine. This gadget is well worth the price and I am delighted with this purchase.

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

          I purchased the iRig to connect my guitar to an iPad for use with IK Multimedia's Amplitube. It works flawlessly. Just plug it in, start the app and you're making music.

          I can also use it with my iMac for recording with GarageBand and getting some really great tones with Amplitube 3 amp modeling software.

          Note: To use the iRig with an iMac you must plug it into the headphones output, NOT the mic input (if your iMac has one), and set the sound preferences / input for internal microphone. This should also work with most of Apple's newer laptops and Mac Minis.
