    Comments about IK Multimedia iRig HD Studio-Quality Guitar Interface for iOS/MAC:

    After about 6 uses over the course of 15 months the unit quit. On-line support (email only) told me that it was probably the cable and that I should BUY a new one for 30.00 since it was out of warranty (1 year). The person that I corresponded with NEVER mentioned a firmware update, but, one was found at their site and downloading the 1.5 firmware upgrade (released today, 08/25/16, so obviously they know they have a problem) brought it back to life. Not a lot of sound options available other than for individual purchase inside the app (2.99 - 9.99 or so for each amp or stomp box model). Some latency can be heard as well. Probably an "ok" tool for silent practice, but not something that I would ever rely on for anything other than amusement.

    Comments about IK Multimedia iRig HD Studio-Quality Guitar Interface for iOS/MAC:

    After trying the original iRig and having problems, I returned it and ordered the iRig HD. Although it was quite a bit more (even with discount) I think it was still a worthwhile purchase. I use it on my iPad 3 with the Amplitube Free apps. Several additional amps & pedals are "unlocked" with the iRig HD (even in the free app) which increased the value of the purchase. The instructions for hooking up the device were somewhat unclear, but once the right order of steps were worked out, it works great. I plug it into the 30 pin adapter, and out through some closed-ear headphones -- and can practice my electric guitar in virtual silence. I also took this on a weekend trip and was able to practice in my room without needing an amp, but with all the desired sounds and effects. The iRig HD gives me clear sound and plenty of volume. So although a bit pricey, it does allow me to practice my guitar anywhere, anytime.

    Immediately started using my iRig to record new song ideas with the Fender app. Perfect for practicing and songwriting at home or on the go! I do wish it was Bluetooth.

          Comments about IK Multimedia iRig HD Studio-Quality Guitar Interface for iOS/MAC:

          I was torn between this and the Apogee Jam. I went with this because it comes with a lightning cable. My buddy has the Apogee Jam and they sound about the same to me. They have similar ever so slight latency on iOS (tolerable for me) but they're pretty solid when connected to a Mac. I'm not sure if it's the processing speed of the machine, or that it's using a smaller buffer when connected to the Mac. In both cases it's usable for me (practice/casual recording) and I'm very happy with the purchase.

          I've used it with Garage Band (iOS or Mac) and Logic Pro X (Mac). I also used it with Ampkit, Amplink for iOS. All work great.
