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.

Don't waste your time

By marc fitch

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

Save your money and look for a better product, with better manuals and documentation.
Does not work as advertised. I expected to be able to plug and play and also play along with IPod songs. However, the amp models have almost no volume in relation to the I pod songs, so the song overpowers your guitar sound. Never really got a good balance where your guitar stands out. Apparently you have to tweak the input and output settings in the set up menu to get a balanced sound. Howevver, why should you have to waste time adjusting the set-up upon your initial use, just so you can use the thing? Don't expect to plug in and play.

Also, the free amps have almost no volume with standard earbuds. You can probably adjust all of this stuff but no documentation is provided in the box and you have to do an extensive search on line to find any useful tips. Poor documentation, week amp tones and time spent tweaking = no fun
Plug does not work with many Iphone 4 cases. Ballistic cases in particular. You need to remove the case to get the plug to fit in. Make sure the plug fits if you have a case on your IPhone or you will need to use without your case or get a new case.
Doesn't really work as advertised. So far it ranks up there as one of the most disappointing add ons and apps for the IPhone that I have purchased to date.

      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:

      First would like to thank all at Musician's Friend. Get my orders quickly and always have a follow up after placing the order. The candy is nice, too.
      These interfaces are fantastic. Negative reviews I read don't make any sense. Some complained about hissing. Last time I turned on a twin verb, it sounded just like it did in amplitube. Sounded great. 59 Bassman, Delux Reverb, Metal, Clean, Lead, all sounded great.
      Bottom line--get it. Not hard to use and the support staff is great--issues were self imposed in the record setting. They got me out of it in one email.

      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.

      This is a good tool to use when I want take my electric with me to practice on but don't want to bring an amp (i.e. to work). It is easy to use and sounds decent through the headphones.

      Caught this on a Stupid Deal of the Day for half price and found it was well worth the impulse buy.

        Love the product, but really happy w/ Musician's Friend customer service. When I received the unit I was unable to get any audio to come through the speaker/headphone jack. Called MF and no questions asked, just shipped me another one and said don't worry about getting us the original since the cost of shipping and processing didn't make it worthwhile. Small purchase but it was my first experience w/ MF and you now have a loyal customer. Thanks!!

          A great little tool. Love all the features. I rtecomend this product to beginers & pros alike.
          Picked up the iRig on sale last month and it's great. My wife says thanks for the PEACE. Even with a small practice amp, pedals, tuner etc. and headphones, I'm still bothering someone at home. I plug this little sucker to my iPad with my studio phones and thats it. I use Garage band and pedal aps and bother no one and I can do this anywhere, I just plug in my guitar. I also recieved it real quick. I always do. Thanks MF.
          No problems whatsoever.
          I got it on sale 23.99.

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

          You'll see some folks who like this and some who don't. This is a good app that isn't all that well documented - hence the bad reviews. When you first start this up, go to Setup and adjust the input level. Mine (and a lot of the reviewers here) need to reduce the input level to eliminate cutouts and other unpleasant problems. 30 seconds with the setup and you'll find this app a lot of fun.
