This looks like a great iPad guitar set up. Details:
Testing out my new toy…
I made this iPad Guitar from bits and pieces from my local hardware store.
I’ve seen the other iPad Guitar on youtube by VJFranzK and it’s pretty slick, but I wanted more of a guitar shape to my build. All I need to do now is add a mini mixer on the end with tweak-able fx knobs then it’d be great for a live setup, the possibilities!
This is the setup here:
2 x iPod Touch’s into mixing desk output to soundcard.
iPad into line in on my PodXT Live guitar fx pedal (doubles as a soundcard).
iPod Nano on the end for down the neck view.
In my Multitracker for iPad (guitar) I’ve loaded a big sounding distortion using PodFarm 2 vst plugin. In ThumbJam the instrument is simply clean notes recorded from a Fender Strat. The iPod Touch’s use (synthesized) orchestra notes recorded from my Roland RS5 keyboard. The sound from the iPad is recorded to my multitracker on my pc but uses a combination of sounds, vst fx (distortion) from PodFarm2 & wah sound + further distortion from the fx pedal board. The sound from the iPod touch’s are recorded in ThumbJam and exported into the multitracker for syncing up.
