Last year I wrote about the release of the iRig PRO. Recently I was lucky enough to add this interface to my personal collection of all-things-cool and I have to say I’m loving it. I would have written about it earlier, but every time I finish playing with the iRig PRO IK Multimedia goes and releases something else of interest to me. Recently they’ve released the AmpliTube Orange suite (for iOS and PC/Mac), a Custom Shop update with all-new ENGL amps and some amazing EQ releases in T-RackS (including the EQ73, EQ81 and Master EQ 432). So I’ve had plenty to keep me busy. I’m hoping IK Multimedia takes a holiday this Easter. Then I can catch up on my Blog! … iRig PRO—now I can mic an amp with iOS!

Damn … The hype was worth it and it took me a year to realise. … iRig HD—Crystal clear tones for iOS guitar players
Late last year I entered the StompBox competition with this video entry. Today I discovered I’d won the competition thanks to this handy tweet by the team at 4PocketsAudio. Yay me! I am very keen to get my hands on the Aurora Sound Studio HD app and the iRig HD interface by IK Multimedia. There are other prizes as well and I look forward to working out what I’ll do with those! … Yay! I’ve had a win!
Peter Hodgson from I Heart Guitar has written a really good blog post based on a series of questions that started with a forum thread on the Seymour Duncan User Group Forum. The blog post shares—and then answers—this basic question … If a guitar manufacturer contacted you wanting to create your signature guitar, what would it be? That’s the basic question. Easy right? Yeah, let the dreaming begin. … If I had a signature guitar …
