Got it to record electric drums with, works perfectly
Sycsa 11.04.2020
Using it to record my Roland TD-1 DMK, it works like a breeze and sounds great. Just connect it to my iPhone, shoot a video like normal and it records both the backing track and the drums. Recording covers has never been this easy.

To make this setup work, I also ordered the following:
- Y splitter, 3.5 mm Stereo male to 2x 3.5 mm stereo female, connected to drum module, one for the headphones, other one for the iRig.
- 2x double sided 3.5 mm stereo jack (one to connect Laptop with backing track to drum module, other one to connect iRig to drum module).
- adapter, 6. 35 mm jack male stereo to 3.5 mm jack female stereo (to connect the above cable to iRig).
- also make sure that all the cables are stereo. Got a mono cable in there at the beginning and the sound would only come out of one earbud.

Adding a little gain on the iRig so the sound comes out louder and upload directly from phone to YouTube. That's it.

Amazing for its portability and the bag of features it offers.
The app is really good, thought some features may be kind of pricey in comparison to what they offer.
It delivers everything you have every wished for regarding a mobile audio interface platform, recording, pedals, amps, cabs, fiddling with eq, everything.

So, what's wrong with it? What are the cons?
Well, I was surprised by the quality of the clean tone, really satisfied by it. Could get some decent SRV like tones out of it. The boost/gain effects were somewhat off putting, and the distortion... unusable, in my opinion.


Good for a portable interface
DragoLago 25.02.2023
It connects to a variety of DAWs with ease.

I tried it with Garageband and Logic pro with no noticeable issues. I was also able to connect it to my iPad for practice sessions on the go with ease. However the version of Amplitube that it ships with leaves a lot to be desired especially on bass guitar. The sound quality when recording bass is ok but nothing to write home about. Monitoring was quick and i was not able to detect lag from processing the bass to the in ear monitors with the fx loop switched off.

Keep in mind that it's not able to drive high impedance headphones properly however IEMs work just fine.


Awesome entrance to the guitar sound
Tural Takhmazov 25.04.2023
What I really like about this product is it's simplicity and tricks you can do with it. It has own ASIO driver. You also can work with ASIO4All if you want, but I ussually stick with native driver.

- simplicity - in-audio jack, output for headphones and guitar amp (if you want to make some noise);
- form-factor - it is really small so you can take it with you everywhere you want;
- apps for iOS and Android are simple and versatile. You can achieve different tones;
- you can use it as simple audio-card for your PC and Mac;
- Amplitube is amazing tool;
- 24 bit / 96 kHz is more than you need if you want to achieve good sound.

- the assembly is a little weak, parts constantly shakes and sound weird, but do not affect on your guitar tone;
- has a bit latency, but it depends on the build of your PC;
- if you use it on your iPhone or iPad you need wired headphones. You cannot send audio signal through wireless headphones, only trough iRig;
- same is for PC. It can be solved by using ASIO4All, but I am not sure.

So, for it's price and quality is amazing tool for achieving unique guitar tone. I cannot recommend it enough. But if you are searching for professional tool for making amazing sound-production I believe you can find something more suitable for you.
