Positive Grid created this dongle that you connect to an iPad, and it will let you connect your guitar for $19.99. That is a very useful connector. There is a lot more to this, though. It’s part of an iPad app called JamUp.
The JamUp Lite and JamUp Pro is a digital amp and effects processor. 24 hybrid amps/effects, 16 user presets, sound-on-sound phrase sampler, iTunes player and more. Perfect for studio work, or just a good practice.
You can choose from 6 amp models and convolution cab simulator, spring and digital reverb, tangy modulations, tape and digital delays, classic and fuzzy distortions, filters, compressors, noise gate and other essentials. JamUp also has “play along” capabilities. Capture loops and riffs and create sound-on-sound overdubs.
You can also use the dongle to connect to other software. For instance, you can use this connector for Garage band – Just select the amp and effects in Garage band, and record your licks.
JamUp Lite is free, and JamUp Pro is $9.99. You can get additional pedals and amps for in-app purchases.
