Customer Reviews

Great app for practice and headphones and performance!

Using one of the many commercial cable sets out the, the app rocks. I use the cable from Griffin, my Traveler Guitar Pro Series, and a set of head phones and rock out to my favorite tunes for hours with plenty of volume to blow my ears out if I crank it up. Effects are great when my Traveler is using the electric pickup, and clean is great on the acoustic bridge pickup (or dirty it up a bit...). Select your favorite song and play along, couldn't be easier for practice. I'm loving it. The only thing that could trick it out more is displayable / selectable chord charts, for those occasional forgetful times; then it would be all in one. That and pedal packs so we can purchase multiples at a discount. ;-). The foot switch unit looks sick; may have to get one.

One quick note, there should be a volume control on the music selection screen so it can be balanced with the guitar input on particularly loud recorded songs. Maybe a mixer on that screen.

Great app needs a tune up

This app is great if you want to rehearse guitar with your favorite artist or with your original music. Problem is you need the chord that makes the app work. I have it, and rehearse fine with it. Couple of problems with the app are when you turn the volume up you get feed back and the guitar and music start to sound very digital. The cord that I was given at sxsw only works with the app. The amp only has volume and no equalizer for tones. I have a great sounding guitar and the app doesn't let tone come thru. Other than that it's got a great loop feature, but the app needs work.

This is the one to get for practice & live performance

I started out with this app and was very pleased. Along comes jam-packed AmpKit+ and I tried to switch. After buying AmpKit proprietary hookup I was still dealing with feedback and noise, making that app unsuitable for practice or performance. This is with top of the line sound equipment and electric guitars (Gibson Les Paul Standard, Fender custom shop 1960 remake).

iShred LIVE has fewer options but it is rock solid, allows cranking headphone or direct to amp. I use this during live performances and am very happy with the results. Solid with the iRig hookup.
