Introducing the all-new Steel Guitar 2.0 — built COMPLETELY from scratch with bigger tone, more soul, and better features than ever!

Combining a large collection of unique guitars, all-new realtime effects and amps processing, and a playing surface more expressive than ever, Steel Guitar is easily the most realistic sounding guitar on iOS.

For unprecedented control over your tone, expand to 10 unique guitars, 8 iconic virtual-tube amps, and 16 classic effects! Build up your signal chain any way you want, thanks to a simple drag-and-drop interface that accommodates all your amps & FX connections, in any order.

Steel Guitar’s axes range from 6-string electrics to acoustic, 12-string, and to even 8- and 10-string pedals steels. Amps include all the important models of the last 60 years — each one complete with channel switching, adjustable gain, and EQ. The effects include painstakingly designed virtual-analog overdrives, fuzzes, wah, tape delay, reverbs, and more!

With the PRO Pack or The Whole Enchilada, gain access to Steel Guitar’s powerful tapedeck complete with recording, looping audio copy/paste and a plethora of other sharing options; or harness Steel Guitar’s powerful, user-friendly MIDI Learn to control your effects, amps and guitar parameters!

Use MIDI or the accelerometer to control string-bending pedals for authentic pedal steel sounds — and you can easily configure pedal-to-string assignments via the built-in copedent matrix.

Steel Guitar 2.0 is fully connected, too. With Inter-App Audio and Audiobus available out-of-the box, connect Steel Guitar to your favorite iOS DAW and jam away!

Whether you’re after the soulful ring of acoustic blues, the mean and dirty crunch of Rock, or dreamy bell-like tones of a pedal steel, Steel Guitar has got your covered.

Customer Reviews

Great sound and fun!

A few minutes of playing with the free version was all that it took for me to instantly upgrade to the full version! This app is fantastic and is another great addition to any mobile musician's arsenal. Don't hesitate, try it out and see and hear for yourself. This app sells itsells pretty much.

My only complaint is the orientation of the screen that is stuck in one position, but won't rotate when you flip your iPad 180 degrees. For practical workflow reasons i always have my iPad orientated with the power cable (and home button) on the left side and audio socket on the right. This app will be stuck upside down in that position and it would be great if it could automatically flip around. Please please fix this Yonac!

Otherwise this is an absolutely recommended piece of ear candy :)

Convincing sound

I purchased this app several years ago and was not impressed with it, but that has changed as of the version 2.0 update. Everything seems like it's been reworked including the playing feel which is very important in a music app like this that allows fine note articulations. This is now a truly amazing app that, with practice, can allow the user to pull off really convincing slide licks. Also, the amps and effects sound great but remember, the effect chain is modeled on real life so effect order is very important in obtaining a good sound - i.e. reverbs and delays come last - post amp - , overdrive boxes and compressors first.

Best Guitar Emulator On iOS

This is a fantastic sounding steel guitar emulator. I just happen to play an "analog" steel guitar and I see the musical potential of this app. The guitar models sound great, and the amps and effects are from another great app known as ToneStack. Bar slants are very controllable and a great addition to make this play like real. There are lots of tweaks and even a switch to make it left handed. I love the tuning capabilities. That is a rich steel guitar tradition in and of itself. I bought the original a couple of years ago and this thing blows it to smithereens. There are obviously some guitarists on the staff of Yonac. Great work Yonac!
