I didn't see a thread on these so thought one might be in order. I bought an iRig 2 at ye olde local gear store a couple weeks back as a present for a friend, and ended up having to wait in a car for a couple hours, during which it mysteriously transitioned to being a present for myself.
Handy little thing. Share your thoughts on apps/interfaces whatever. Interested to know what else is out there (I'm on iPhone, but I presume there are some Android folks here too)
- The SVT-4 Pro sim and HM-2 sim are both well worth the money.
- ENGL Savage not so much, bit of a disapointment.
-I thought this one fucking sucked, but I only used an SSS guitar with EMGs into it. So maybe it plays nicer with humbuckers or passives. Amplitude didn't sound stellar with that guitar either.
Overall, a few of them felt like straight up extortion. I guess most of the apps are on a freemium model. Paying $5 only to realize it immediately sucks. But I was way stoked on the SVT and HM-2. The HM-2 is actually dead on, and is way more usable than the actual pedal I own.
Bias on its own is not good. It's really meant to be used with jam up. Once you load the bias amps into jam up, they sound much much better
