Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up inputs, part of iPad Music Production: AmpliTube.
In order to play and record your guitar through AmpliTube, you need some kind of adapter that…allows you to connect a standard quarter-inch guitar cable to your iPad.…AmpliTube accepts input from both the dock connector and the headphone jack.…So you can use an accessory like the iRig, which is built to use with AmpliTube, and…you can plug that into your headphone jack, or you can use the Apogee Jam, which connects to your dock connector.…There really are advantages and disadvantages to both of these types of devices.…For devices like the Jam that plug in to the dock connector, you have the advantage of…converting your guitar signal to a digital signal right away.…
It also has its own gain control on the side.…So your signal will tend to be cleaner and louder going through the dock connector, but because…it's going through that connector, you won't be able to keep your iPad charged while you're playing.…So you're going to want to make sure you have your battery fully charged, or at least charge…it enough so you can get through your session.…
