Line 6 ships the Mobile In interface and the Mobile POD app for iPhone or iPad 29/11/11
We knew it was coming and now Line 6 has announced the shipment of Mobile In premium digital guitar interface and Mobile POD guitar tone app. The new hardware and app allow guitarists to connect an electric guitar to their iPhone or iPad, which, says Line 6, gives them the same high-quality sounds they'd get if they were playing from a wide variety of famous guitar amplifiers, speakers and effects including distortion, chorus and reverb.
Line 6 Co-founder and SVP of New Business Development, Marcus Ryle, told us, "Mobile In and Mobile POD turn your iPhone or iPad into a fully functioning Line 6 POD multi-effect complete with tweakable tones, simultaneous effects and legendary Line 6 guitar amp and effect modelling. Line 6 pioneered digital modelling technology and, in 1998, released the first POD multi-effect processor. This introduced countless guitarists to digital modelling, a technology that gives them access to wide varieties of amp and effect tones within one device. Mobile In is designed to be the best possible guitar tone solution for mobile devices. Other iOS guitar interfaces are rife with issues like headphone feedback, latency and poor sound quality. Mobile In solves all of these issues to deliver the best iOS guitar playing experience."
The new Mobile POD app brings Line 6 tone and technology to its most portable level. The free app includes generous collections of 64 models of celebrated modern, vintage and boutique guitar gear including amps, cabinets, stompboxes and rack effects. Users can mix and match the fully adjustable models to build a virtually unlimited variety of tones, which can then be saved as presets. Also included with the app, free of any in-app purchase, are over 10,000 hand-crafted presets created by artists, Line 6 and other guitar players.
Unlike competing analogue interfaces that plug into an iOS device's headphone jack, Mobile In digital guitar interface plugs into the 30-pin connector on the bottom of the iOS device. Line 6 tell us that this digital connection enables the digital guitar interface to offer pro-quality audio specs for guitar tones that are exceptionally rich and clear. Mobile In supports up to 24-bit/48 kHz digital audio. The Guitar input features 110 dB dynamic range. The stereo Line input, which is perfect for sending keyboard audio or any other standard mono or stereo line-level audio source to your iPhone or iPad, has 98 dB dynamic range. Mobile In is the perfect digital guitar interface for use with any CoreAudio guitar apps including GarageBand for iPad.
Mobile In includes a high-quality 6-foot guitar cable. Mobile POD is a free download from the App Store. Mobile In and Mobile POD are made for iPhone 4, iPad 2 and iPad. Pricing and Availability:
