Join author and musician Garrick Chow as he introduces AmpliTube, a studio-quality app that turns your iPad into a mobile studio for recording a collection of classic and modern guitar sounds. After plugging in and configuring the necessary inputs and connections, the course shows how to use the built-in tuner to make sure your instrument's sounding its best, and keep in time with the metronome. Garrick then demonstrates how to choose the amp models, cabinets, and up to four stomp boxes to create your own unique tones, and work with the 8-track recorder's "reel to reel" interface during the performance.
