OVERVIEW

Legendary Line 6 POD device for your Apple iPhone or iPad.

The Mobile In guitar interface brings rich, legendary Line 6 guitar tones and best-in-class audio quality to your iPhone and iPad. Just plug-in and play, the Mobile In gives you guitar or bass studio-quality tone from right inside your iOS device. Use the free Mobile POD app that's included with the Mobile In to access 32 high-quality amps, 16 stompbox and rack effects, and 16 individual speaker cabinets for a ton of unique characteristic sound-shaping possibilities.

Studio Quality for Serious Sound
The Mobile In digital interface features pro specifications for full, clear guitar tones: up to 24-bit/48kHz audio quality throughout, and 110dB dynamic range on the guitar input. Unlike other devices that connect to the analog headphone jack of an iPhone or iPad, Mobile In attaches via the 30-pin connector for a high-quality, all-digital signal path. Clean tones sparkle and sing, effect-laden tones are rich and colorful, and high-gain tones are powerful and feedback-free.

Mobile In is also the high-quality way to record stereo audio sources to your iPhone or iPad. Simply connect a keyboard, mixer, CD player or even another iPhone to the stereo line input.

Mobile POD App
Leading guitarists depend on POD for amazing tone in studios and on stages around the world. The Mobile POD app brings these legendary guitar tones—the same ones found the award-winning Line 6 POD 2.0 and Pocket POD products—to your iPhone and iPad.

32 amps, 16 stompbox and rack effects, and 16 speaker cabinets give you immediate access to an impressive array of sounds. The intuitive graphical display makes it easy to tweak and save your custom tones. You can also take advantage of over 10,000 Mobile POD presets designed by artists, Line 6 and other players, right on your iPhone or iPad. To top it all off, Mobile POD also lets you play along with your entire iTunes library.

The Ultimate Jam-along Experience
Designed to work together, Mobile In and Jammit let you immerse yourself in your favorite artists’ original recordings—and play along with incredibly authentic guitar tones. The award-winning Jammit app is the first to let you jam with real, multi-track master recordings from a wide variety of popular artists. Just plug your guitar into the Mobile In interface to access legendary POD tones—perfectly matched to a variety of Jammit songs.

Jammit is available as a free download from the App Store. You can purchase individual songs through the app or the Jammit website.

This Line 6 iPhone / iPad hardware uses the devices digital interface instead of the headphone line in/out and as a result, sound quality is vastly superior to at least the iRig hardware.

I first purchased the iRig for a low cost audio input to use with a recommended JamUp app as well as Garage Band. However, the iRig hardware produced significant noise and static due to the use of the iPad head phone circuitry. Recommended upgrades were the iRig HD because it instead makes use of the digital interface on the bottom of the iPad/iPhone.

I returned the original less expenstive iRig hardware and instead of purchasing the HD upgrade, I tried the Line 6 version at half the price.

My first impression was that the hardware felt cheap and not durable. Also when I plugged it in, I questioned the security of the connection. However, I found it connected to fine and never came unplugged in a few multi hour sessions. (I can't yet speak to durability and I'm not sure how the connection will fair in a live performance???)

I can speak to the sound quality however. This little inexpensive device produces fantastic results. The sound quality is miles better than the iRig hardware I started with! I definitely recommend this device for casual playing with headphones or even with a buddy plugged into a stereo!

The Pod software is good but only for playing. I recommend the Jamit app which also has good sound and amp models but also allows jamming to music and recording.

I was using this as an interface but it simply comes unplugged from your iPad far too easily! While recording i have frequently blown some great takes as it becomes unseated in the iPad dock and the audio stream stops. If you move every so slightly, the cable will pull the thing loose. Great idea, terribly poor implementation. Don't waste your $$$ on this.

    Comments about Line 6 Mobile In Portable Audio Interface:

    I have another brand that plugs into headphone jack. Works well but you do get feedback and it needs batteries. Line 6 is super easy and you get far more free options from the start. Still learning all the ins and outs.

    Comments about Line 6 Mobile In Portable Audio Interface:

    The POD app works well enough, but my iPhone 4 won't work with GarageBand, I need 4s and above and then only with a 3rd party app.
    For now I output the iPhone headphone jack to a DR-40 input jacks and it gets the job done, hoped to get it all on the iPhone tho. Can't complain about the price, got it on SDOTD.

    Comments about Line 6 Mobile In Portable Audio Interface:

    I was surprised at just how simple it was to use this with my 3rd generation iPad.

    It worked with garageband for iOS and of course, the free line 6 iOS app.

    Running Garageband on my iPad I can not only model guitar amps but also record the output.

    I also connect the standard 1/8" stereo patch cable from my iPad's earphone jack into the aux input on my Fender amp for play through which sounds great when combining my guitar along with Garagebands other instrument tracks.

    Comments about Line 6 Mobile In Portable Audio Interface:

    Very easy to "get the hang of", great to have all the different sound and effects options at your fingertips, when combined with your phone, compact setup without the bulk of heavy amps or multiple pedals. Also nice not looking for an outlet to jam, just plug it in my phone and I'm in guitar heaven. I keep it in my guitar case and with a pair of headphones I'm rockin' out to awesome sounding tone without disturbing anyone. I love this thing!

    a lot of fun and less cumbersome than the 'old school' Rockman type of units. Latency could be a problem on recording.
