Hey! I tend to run on a bit too much in these so I’ll try to be brief.. *Im wondering how far you can get using an; iPhone, A nice set of headphones, An relatively inexpensive interface (i.e. close to 100$ Irig hd 2, Apogee Jam..) And one of the related apps?? Awhile back I bought the cheaper Irig and used IK Multimedia’s app which seems to have improved since its earlier versions and I definitely like the look/layout. * Now it seems to me that the better modeling sounds (excluding for now the more pricey Ax-Fx, Kemper, Amplifire etc..) Typically come via desktop or laptops. Would that be fair to say?? Basically is the PC version of Amplitube superior to the iPhone version in most cases? *Like I said earlier I do think the Amplitube stuff is fun, I know that some folks despise it for it’s limitations and lack of depth in customization. But manipulating the “power tubes” and tweaking 30 some odd parameters of a Reverb unit definitely isn’t my cup of tea anyway. *What I’d like to know is; If I were to upgrade the noisy passive Irig interface. Would that be enough to improve the iPhone apps significantly enough to be competitive sonically with say, Yamaha THR..?? Or other devices in that approximate price category? And if not are there devices that I should be aware of that are perhaps better (less than 350$)?? I already own a bunch of high end, “real” amps, guitars, & pedals. So unless something changes, I really don’t think anything much more $$ is worth it to me personally. Ideally this discussion only concerns silent practice @home through headphones.. Thanks!
