Excellent although it does not seem to work combined with the noise limiting device on my son's headphones. Works perfectly without that device.

Really convenient piece of kit, and for the price, it is a 'must-have' for me. You have to download an App, the free version has a basic Amp setting, a couple of virtual effects pedals and a single track recorder, so you can play with yourself for hours. If you start spending money on the App, you can add 8-tracks of recording, and umpteen Amp and Effects pedals. I use it a lot, so must be good.

As an adaptor it does pretty much what it says on the tin. Connects to my iPad without any issues and I use it for Amplitube and Garage Band. Only issue which stops it getting 5 stars is that it you do get feedback when turned up but whether thats due to the shortness of the cable on the adaptor or a software issue i'm not sure. I'm sure this will prove an invaluable purchase once this issue can be sorted.

This is a very cool well thought out product, it combines my two favourite possessions, my les Paul and my iPad! the effects I can get out of this set up are amazing and all without upsetting my wife, for headphone practice this can't be beat!

Good practice tool, has the ability to play along backing tracks as well .. a few tips:
- The "song" menu for importing the songs is visible only when you scroll the dark red bar at the top along - took me a while to spot that!
- You can import direct from your playlists etc. into the song lists - it converts to WAV for some reason as it does it. But the app crashes after you've added 10 or so songs.
I found I can get around this by converting songs to WAV externally (I used GoldWave) and then importing into the "file share" option in iTunes.

Easy to use and works with other apps such as Polytune as well as Amplitube. Great for practicing while the other half is watching tv.
Amplitube's never going to match up to the amps its trying to model, but for a free app it has loads of great features and doesn't sound too bad.

I bought this so that I could use the IK MUltimedia's "AmpliTube" app on my Ipad. The IRig itself works fine and the features of AmpliTube appear on the surface to be brilliant. Unfortunately however I found the overall sound excessively compressed both through headphones and an external amplifier. This has reduced what I thought would be a useful portable tool to little more than a toy to have fun with. Very disappointing!

I am a great fan of music software, despite being a dedicated supporter of analogue equipment. I purchased the iRig as a back up option if an amp fails at a gig (a kind of last resort!); it has a very simple, easy to sue interface, settings can be stored very quickly, so for a quick 'live' option it is viable (as long as you can anchor your iPhone or iPad); I would say the actual sonic quality could certainly be improved, it is ok, but really that's it, just ok. In conclusion: great interface, great ease-of-use, plug & go, software emulations are quite thin sounding (compared to a similar digital Korg unit for example), but the price is very good, so the aphorism 'you get what you pay for' applies here!
