AmpKit+ gets NEW Meteor Amp

Here’s what’s new with AmpKit+:

“NEW Meteor Amp: Patterned after ENGL’s Fireball E625. It cranks a super tight response with a planet-sized punch that sends metal and rock solos into the upper stratosphere. Boasting a remarkable low end distortion along side superior cleans, its 3 band EQ, Bright Switch, Depth and Presence controls earn it a “Heavy” classification in the AmpKit arsenal. Caveat emptor – this amp is not for the faint of heart.”

GuitarTone version 2.7 from Sonoma Wire Works arrives on the app store

Just like FourTrack, Sonoma Wire Works updates GuitarTone. Here’s what’s new:

  • iOS 7 Tested
  • GuitarJack Model 2 Control Panel improvements

Get more Amp and Effects Packs in GuitarTone and they’ll be activated in FourTrack and StudioTrack automatically.

GuitarTone works with most iOS audio interfaces, but sounds best with GuitarJack Model 2 and GuitarJack 2 USB audio interfaces, which feature a 1/4 inch input, an 1/8″ stereo input, an 1/8″ stereo headphone/line out with increased drive for headphones, 24-bit AD/DA converters and impeccable sound with no discernible noise. GuitarJack is ideal for jamming with GuitarTone and recording using the GuitarTone tool in FourTrack and StudioTrack, GuitarJack’s studio-quality sound is designed by Joe Bryan.

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.

Musikmesse 2014: Line6’s AMPLIFi FX100

I got a demo of this unit at Musikmesse and was actually very surprised by how well thought out it was. That probably sounds wrong. It is as I’d expect from Line6 (who made the very first MIDI mobilizer for iOS of course).

The hardware is well made, the build quality is high, but I was especially interested in the integration between the device, the app, and the cloud service that holds everything together. It’s a great idea and a good use of the individual pieces of technology. I can see it being really useful for guitarists.

What really interests me though is how we’ll see all these things hanging together in the future, or to be precise, the not very distant future. The use of cloud based services to hold and share presets is a great one, but so far everything I’ve seen sits in isolation. Line6’s cloud won’t talk to Positive Grid’s ToneCloud and vice-versa.

What we need, and what I expect will happen eventually is that we’ll see an Audiobus for tone sharing, and possibly for more, like synth patch sharing across apps. Why not? If you can share a preset in Audiobus 2 then why not more?

Anyway, that’s off the subject for now, I was impressed by Line6’s latest offering and I’ll be interested to see how it develops over time and what users make of it too.

Flying Haggis arrives to put the fun back into your guitar playing

Put the fun back in your playing with Flying Haggis – the distinctive guitar amp for discerning guitarists.

Simply plug in your guitar via any iOS compatible interface (eg IK Multimedia iRig, Apogee Jam) and start playing. Or, connect via Audiobus for additional multi-fx possibilities!

Flying Haggis is an all-original amp design with great tones, a nice selection of vintage fx, and a no nonsense interface with all the pick-up-and-play appeal of real hardware. There are no complex menus or screens to navigate. There are no in-app purchases or advertising to distract you. Just start up the app, plug in your guitar, and play.

Don’t take our word for it – visit our website to hear examples of Flying Haggis in action!

With a realistic vintage tone stack, multi-stage preamp, 6 speaker cabinets and 4 mic positions, you can quickly dial in a massive range of amp tones. The vintage style stompboxes (drawn from db audioware’s extensive fx library) and stereo reverb complete your sound.

Audiobus compatibility lets you record Flying Haggis output directly into any compatible app, or process your synths or drums using Flying Haggis as an Audiobus effect.

Flying Haggis can also be controlled from any iOS compatible MIDI device. This lets you easily switch presets and manually control any amp parameter from real knobs or sliders.

The app is priced at $6.99.
