I've been interested in these since they came out. I figured it would be a sweet setup and would easily fit in my guitar case. Guitar Center had them on sale for $24.99, so I thought I'd give it a try.
Came home, and went to download Amplitube. Uh-oh...there's a "free" version, and a paid version at $20. Opted for free to try things out. Seriously? $25 for a cable plug in, that includes NO software price reduction? The free versions of Amplitube are an absolute joke. One amp model...that's it. And, to top it off, if you want to buy Amplitube for your iPad, then use it on you iPhone...yup...you get to PAY FOR IT AGAIN!
So, I tried the Peavey veresion of Amplitube, "Amped"...same deal...you pay for each effect, and each amp. LAME! It works with Garage Band, but has noise issues...
This iRig seems REALLY noisy. Tons of noise...and static that sounds like there's a bad cable in the mix. Changed cables...no change in problem. Am I doing something wrong? Probably gonna take it back for a refund. $25 for the iRig, plus $40+ to get the software on my phone/ipad. Not worth the money, IMO.
