Apple boasts that there is an iPhone app for everything and we at AudioFanzine are starting to believe that they might be right. In the past two years we have discovered a bunch of more or less successful music apps. It is now time for virtual guitar amps to take over the famous mobile phone with hardware and software solutions. We tested one of them recently: the Peavey AmpKit Link. read more…
Much better !!!!!!!

Not enough to fill this chapter, it's easy to install and configure either hardware or software .. ct
Just FYI, the software is compatible with the ampkit Irig IK Multimedia ..
I use the software on a 3G iPhone with OS 4.1 and I encountered no problem so far .. the software runs well and no worries about latency ..
I use this system since its release and I also availing oneself version IK Multimedia which totally fills its debut had me when my desire and totally owed when his Ralite .. My question is silent as to whether I would meet with the same dsillusion Ampkit .. Well no not at all .. Even if I am not entirely agree with the main criticisms made by other users IRIG on its output level, for me the main default of IRIG is the quality of modlisations we pass away with a quality Ampkit dare almost worthy of the greatest soft as we are used to rub in normal ...
In fact I found a grain worthy of the name without forgetting that even when we're on a 3G iPhone and for my part ..
Even when I had a little trouble with some beginners manage sounds but everything is back to normal soon ..
The interface is very intuitive and friendly aesthetic more ..
For the cons or down blaisse is that for a telephony application you will need a sum almost dbourser Whereas if indeed you who wish to buy the totality of the components ..
16 euros for the most basic application of a total of 61.20 euros for the add .. gear makes a total of 77.20 euros to 15 euros therefore compared the version of IK Multimedia I tell myself that quality map will simply pay .. I will only speak about the software part of course because for some hardware you need for one as for the other about thirty euros ..
For owners of Irig (hardware) know that it is compatible with software version ampkit ..
Finally, and to finish and despite the price I find very good App and above usual because I will definitely use it one day to jam with qt if the opportunity presents itself in Last minute ..
Otherwise the application presents some peculiarities supplmentaires as a tuner (specific on), a mtronomme and a recorder (one track for now) .. This will allow you to make the same ramping ..
The quality is the price too but I do it again without hesitating that choice because this little app gives me much happiness in my situation, that of a large nomad all year on the road. ..
Peavy thank you and Agile partners for their work ..

The only concern is that we have absolutely jack for connecting a headset to listen. And should put battery not included ...
So I took the software Peavy, garageband, everyday looper, and another full of other applications.
Result, if you want a breath of beef in your ear darkens bought one. The horror!
Ampkit in the base set your amp with a microphone and a noise gate above. From this it came to games foute my mouth. I played with two three-hour time of any testing. Here, I will be back!
I prefer a sound card that function as usb1 bought something that plugs into the mic input of my iPad!
Practical mobile solution

What can I say? We put a battery, you plug, it works. It could not be simpler.
I use it with the application of Agile Partners Ampkit recognized immediately.
Rating: 8 - I enjoyed setting the volume of input and output on Ampkit Link
The Ampkit Link has a big flaw, despite its stack: there is indeed feedback. As a noise gate is mandatory and a kind of unpleasant metallic sound persists.
This is unfortunate because the simulations of Ampkit are quite correct for the price.
Rating: 6 - once accustomed to the feedback it goes better, but still ... shame
Small disclaimer: This opinion concerns only the Ampkit Link, not the application Ampkit!
In the end, without the worry of feedback, the Amplink Kit is a mini guitar interface just right. So, can not be used for anything a little bit of exploitable (I think, for example, GarageBand iPad).
Nevertheless, given its size and price, it's a very interesting tool for the guitarist on the go.
Final score: 7.
ampkit + and irig

It plugs into and it works I speak of and no irig amkit the link with an additional battery but not on the irig.
The irig ampkit is compatible and that's where it's interesting.
I speak now of the app that to me is much more efficient than the AmpliTube
I have a sufficient level and modeling are good enough qualitée
I use everything on iphone 4 with a epiphone lp Express and a powered speaker altec orbit of which is in my travel kit.
Frankly it rocks the pants to my grandmother
any concern for feedback and cie one thing have to go to airplane mode to avoid interference
lack a little audio editor for the session and what rec classify its preset banks and for me it is the top
I tried everything lite version before I decide to apli ampkit +
after we add some effects of moselisation but it starts to encrypt
I do not hesitate to do again the same if we just go back to aillor if someone has a trick I clent.
