> Mishaps with hilariously short patch cables aside (see previous post), after a bit of soldering, that's my new live rig complete, and it's even more compact than it was before if that's at all possible! For the tech nerds, you're looking at a Galien Kruger MB200 200 watt amp (with built in DI so we can run pre-volume/pre-EQ signal straight to FOH), a Shure GLXD4 wireless, IK Multimedia iRig HD2 audio interface and Blueboard Bluetooth control pedal, and a 6th gen iPod Touch running Amplitube 4. Sounds FUCKING MASSIVE. I'll be giving it a good belting before I drag it out on the road just to be sure it'll hold up on a real stage but everything points to it being amazing. Certainly blows your hair back when you stand in front of it, if nothing else! HAHA! >more
This tiny, inexpensive piece of equipment has changed practicing solo for me forever. A few notable points: - I can test out guitar pedals/amps before I buy them through plugins. - Has a tuner plugin so if I don't want to bust out my pedal I can just hook into my phone. - I can play will full amp sound through headphones
If you get nagged for making too much noise this is an easy purchase. I think I got mine on ebay for under $15. I haven't tried any of the new/higher end interfaces iRig is making these days, but if I ever break this little guy I might explore a better one.
Not used in like 8+ years. Think I was just curious. Just don't need anything like this. If I wanna put an idea down on the go I just use voice memos & the internal mic on iPad/iPhone, etc.
Got this probably at least six years ago just because I didn't feel like paying for a tuner pedal. I use this in conjunction with the TC Electronic Polytune app on my iPad and it works great. I downloaded the full Amplitube app later on, and got the Mesa Boogie add-on, and it's pretty cool. I'm actually able to connect my guitar to my Beats Pill+ with this thing and use it as a small, portable amp.
