ToneStack GO for iOS arrives

Yonac brings us ToneStack GO (universal), the freemium version of ToneStack GO. Here’s the detail:

ToneStack GO is the ultimate in signal processing: with the largest variety of amps & FX, the latest advancements in modeling technology, and an unbelievably powerful yet simple interface – it simply shreds all the other guys.

Right away, enjoy a classic amp & cab, and 7 meticulously designed FX. Expand to a total of 24 amps & cabs, and 71 FX – the largest collection on iOS.

Thanks to ToneStack GO’s state-of-the-art “Virtual Circuit” technology, each ToneStack GO unit is the digital mirror image of a real analog topology. Unlike other FX apps that try to copycat with EQing and other gimmicks, ToneStack GO recreates the intricate designs of the real thing. The result is a warm, responsive tone with the natural behavior you find in analog units.

Amazing Selection of Pro Amps & FX

ToneStack GO offers a huge range of amps, cabs & FX: sizzling tube amps, iconic stompboxes, pro-grade rack units, and high-end reverbs make ToneStack GO the most complete plugin suite on the iOS.

ToneStack GO also brings many powerful guitar FX to the iOS for the first time: polyphonic octaver, harmonizer, realistic spring reverbs, virtual-reel tape delays are just a few examples.

The Most Versatile Signal Chain on iOS

Why be limited with just 4 or 8 FX that other guys max you out at? ToneStack GO lets you run a whopping 64 amps & effects simultaneously* so you can let your imagination run wild.

For even more power, ToneStack GO includes a unique ABY unit not found in other FX apps. Split your signal anywhere: run dual amp setups, switch or blend FX chains, or multiplex your signal via frequency splitting – countless permutations, all up to you.

You can match any amp with any cab (all cabs have 3 mics with distance & position settings); you can insert any unit anywhere – even between amps and cabs like a true FX loop. Managing your signal chain is as easy as dragging and dropping an icon!

All the Pro Features of iOS

Enjoy the full power of the platform’s top MIDI and Preset systems. MIDI learn is super-intuitive thanks to ToneStack GO’s interface: all the amp & FX controls are MIDI-programmable. Effortlessly create UNLIMITED banks and presets – share them at the touch of a button. ToneStack GO is an Inter-App Audio effect, and works in any Audiobus slot.

Musikmesse 2014: Great to see Sonoma Wire Works at the show

Having known Sonoma Wire Works for some years now it was great to meet them all for the first time face to face at Musikmesse.

Sonoma have been doing really cool things with the iPhone and the iPad from the very earliest days of iOS (before it was called iOS of course) and are continuing to do so as well. They launched the very first 4 track recorder for iOS, called, FourTrack (app store link), and the first iPad 8 track too, called StudioTrack (app store link). If that wasn’t enough, they launched a great range of drum apps called the InstantDrummer series, were one of the main forces behind the original AudioCopy initiative and brought us the original GuitarJack, am immensely high quality iPhone audio interface before these things had really entered anyone else’s head.

So, in my view, they’re a pretty impressive force, and they’ve contributed a great deal to the iOS music making world. So it was great to meet Sonoma Wire Works and chat about what’s coming next. Of course, as you can imagine, I can’t say much about their future plans, but I can say that there’s some great things coming from this long time support of the mobile musician.

And it’s great to see Sonoma’s hardware on display at Musikmesse. From where they started with the original GuitarJack and the Tayor EQ and GuitarTone apps, things have come a long way indeed. They’re on the third iteration of the GuitarJack, the new GuitarJack USB model and it’s just as good if not better than the previous too. You’ll be hearing more from me about it in good time. As you can see there are some new versions of their hardware, Guitar Jack Stage.

Here’s Daniel talking about it:

Of course I can’t mention Sonoma Wire Works without saying that they turned 11 years old this year! Congratulations, and here’s to many more years of innovation in both software and hardware.
