Product Description

Our GuitarConnect cable turns your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad into the most portable guitar rig/practice room/studio you've ever used. Connect the 1/4 cable to your guitar, bass, or keyboard; then open iShred LIVE or other instrument effects app. As quickly as you can tap your Multi-Touch display, our GuitarConnect Cable plugs you into iShred LIVE's eight-effect pedal board with digital tuner, metronome, and a playalong practice player that allows you to play along with your favorite songs, or practice tricky sections. No need to lug out the amp; no neighbors yelling for you to ...turn it DOWN...! Just a super-compact practice rig you can use with your headphones to rock wherever you are, whenever you want. Tuck your iPhone into a pocket and you're playing without being tied down (excellent for practicing windmills from atop your coffee table). And because our cable provides a standard 1/8 (3.5 mm) stereo-mini jack, you can plug in your headphones, or an AUX cable (we suggest our own excellent Auxiliary Audio Cable) and play into your home stereo, amp, control board, whatever.

I bought this to record on my iPad, and it does exactly what it should. I haven't used it for guitar apps yet, but I have used it on Multitrack DAW which works like a charm. You can plug it into anything with a 1/4 in jack; keyboard, bass, whatever. I even use it to record vocals. So far it has not failed me, but the only thing I don't like is the fact that the instrument cable is permanently attached, so if it goes bad, the whole thing is garbage. Good construction for weekly use, looks like it will be part of my gig bag for a while...

I have been using Peavey's Ampkit link for a while, and have been very satisfied with it. The Ampkit link costs at least $20, and requires batteries and an additional cable ($20). The Guitarconnect requires only the single cable. So, + on both no additional link, nor batteries. I found a great deal on the Guitarconnect so I thought, what the heck, let's try it out.

One think I LOVE about this over other solutions is the placement of the headphone jack. It seems all others (Amplink included) are placed on the link, at the iDevice, meaning that unless your headphone cable is REALLY long, it flaps on the top of the guitar, across the strings or body. With Guitarconnect it plugs in at the guitar end, so it fits nicely behind the guitar, out of the way, and without a lot of cable.

I also love that it doesn't require a battery.

It's a single cable so It fits easily in a gigbag, backpack, or evan your pocket, so all you need is your idevice and guitar.

The only downside I found is that it isn't as "hot" as the amplink. I would think that's obvious, as there has to be a reason the amplink solution has a battery which must be to amplify the signal before it gets to the idevice. I won't say that cranking the guitar and app you are using won't allow you to get the same volume and tones, they just aren't as HOT at the same settings.

Soooo.... I am absolutely going to keep it and keep it with my gig bag at all times, but I may also keep my amplink for use at home with my studio headphones for when travel isn't required.

I hope this helps.

I bought this for my iPad. I'm running my guitar into Amplitube and saw no reason to pay $40 for an iRig which is basically just an adapter. Now I know why. This thing worked wonderfully the first time, even the first 6 times. I've now used it 10 times and the cheap plastic 1/4" jack is completely shorted out. Useless. So I wasted 20 bucks, and will now go buy an iRig or Amplink or something not Griffin.

This cable does exactly what it says, it takes your guitar, and runs it though the iPad's input/output jack, then allows you to plug any stereo 3.5mm jack in to connect to any device you wish. I've used this cable in live performances with my band plugged into my wireless base unit, and it works very reliably.

I had an electric guitar and wanted to learn how to play, but didn't want to spend an outrageous amount on an amp as even the cheapest amps are at least 40 and sound okay. I have a pretty decent pair of headphones so decided to try this out, and it worked perfectly! I took one star away because the app they advertise doesn't work on newer devices. I was able to use the Amplitube App with this and it sounded great. I also like that I can now play it without anyone else having to hear it.

I was excited to recieve this cord, as I thought it would be the ideal way to inexpensively record high quality guitar. I was terribly mistaken. The cord gives an uncanny amount of noise/feedback in GarageBand, and any other app I used it with. This cord, for all intensive purposes, does not work.

The desing is excellent, good funtionability, buy is has a little problems managing impedance, when you get the volume of your guitar up sometimes it gets distorted, i like the cable is long and the headphone jack is near the guitar plug, and you dont need aditional guitar cable to connect you guitar its like plug an play!

Very noisy. I was disappointed that the current version of Android is too slow to work without a terrible latency (to the point of being unusable). Lollipop is supposed to fix that, but it's not been released for my phone (Samsung Note 3) yet. I finally just bought Focusrite Scalett to connect my guitar to a DAW and Amplitube 3 on my desktop computer. Would still love to have a suitable mobile solution (without having to buy an iPhone). It does work better on my iPad, but it is still noisy. Digital iRigs are reportedly the best.

Update: I updated to Lollipop on my Note 3. Andrig no longer runs, but if you download Amplitube from the Samsung store, it works. There is a very small amount of latency, but not enough to be disorienting. You can only use Amplitube on Samsung phones because of the Samsung Pro Audio on the *later* devices (Note 3, 4, S5, S6). I notice that there is an irigHD-A digital interface for android too. It's a $100. Oh, and this cable still sucks because it's very noisy, but at least I know the software can work on my Note 3 with Android 5.x.
