Line 6, Inc. has announced the Mobile In digital input adaptor and Mobile POD guitar tone app. The new hardware and app allow guitarists to connect an electric guitar to their iPhone or iPad, which 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.
The Mobile POD app brings Line 6 tone and technology to its most portable level. The free app includes 64 models of 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 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.
Mobile In digital input plugs into the 30-pin connector on the bottom of the iOS device. Mobile In supports up to 24-bit/48 kHz digital audio. The Guitar input features 110 dB dynamic range. The stereo Line input, which can send keyboard audio or any other standard mono or stereo line-level audio source to an iPhone or iPad, has 98 dB dynamic range. Mobile In can be used 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 StoreSM. Mobile In and Mobile POD are made for iPhone 4, iPad 2 and iPad.
