      Comments about TASCAM iXZ Audio Interface Adapter for iPad, iPhone, and iPod:

      Before buying this, I had some experience with hooking up my guitar to my iPad/iPhone. Prior to the IXZ, I have used an iRig(not the HD)and Apogee Jam (which had the cleanest sound for sure)... for some reason, this one was the most fun of them all for practicing loops with my Garage Band. Works great when I hook up a mic to my Iphone while shooting a video-saved me tons of money cause I was about to upgrade for a camcorder which would cost me way more then this little gadget.

      The IXZ has an easy connectivity. However, I did purchase a 3.5mm 4 Pole Male Female headphone earphone extension cable so I can connect it to my iOS devices with their case without twisting the plug and the short cable it has. The IXZ can produce some annoying noise but you can minimize it by adjusting the monitor/noise gate levels on the app. Also check that the crosstalk switch is on at the settings.

      It is true that there is a low level bleeding from the other tracks while tracking with the IXZ, but it's no problem if all you wish is to use your iPhone as a sketchpad or a practicing tool with riffs and beats etc. You cannot however use it for professional demo..I wouldn't anyway. For that you go to your PC..
      I have given it a good rating just for the fact that it has an easy setup, it is portable, sturdy and i got it in a killer price.

        Comments about TASCAM iXZ Audio Interface Adapter for iPad, iPhone, and iPod:

        I bought this used from musicians friend, and it does everything that it is supposed to do. Nice clear recordings, and works great with AmpKit, Bias, jam up pro, and GarageBand. Great bang for the buck. I have been running this on the same two AA batteries that were shipped with it, and I have had it for about a week now. The batteries are still running strong.

        Speedy and free shipping from musicians friend, as usual. Works great for my mobile studio.

          Comments about TASCAM iXZ Audio Interface Adapter for iPad, iPhone, and iPod:

          Great device. Works very well with my ipad3. I mainly use this device with GarageBand. Phantom power allows me to use my rode nt1a for demo recordings with my acoustic guitar. I have experienced zero latency while monitoring tracks and recording simultaneously (tracking). Overall.. I am very satisfied. Serves the purpose I needed it for.

          Comments about TASCAM iXZ Audio Interface Adapter for iPad, iPhone, and iPod:

          I loved this device at first, the price is great and the sound quality even that you can get from this is really great.
          However, I notice that the sound bleeds through from track to track no matter what setting I have tried it on and no matter how low the volume on my headphones are. The only conclusion I could come to was that it had to be the Tascam.
          It's a wonderful device and great for the idea of pioneering into iOS recording and most certainly fantastic for its price. But if you want to have a professional recording, this will not be your salvation.

          I bought the Tascam iXZ to use with the Dave Mustaine Guitar Prodigy app and it works great. This is my first guitar adapter for the iPad and I couldn't be happier. It has a solid construction and also looks great.
