More on the Jammit iOS App

Digital audio technology innovators Line 6 and award-winning iOS app makers Jammit have partnered to create the ultimate guitar jamming, recording and learning experience for iPhone(R) and iPad(R).

The companies have collaborated to create a system that allows the guitarist's sound to instantly match that of the guitar part played on the original song. By integrating the Jammit software with artist sounds and the Line 6(R) Mobile In(TM) guitar interface, the experience of playing with the original master recordings is taken to a nearly magical level for players of all abilities and styles.

"The Jammit app gives guitarists a uniquely inspiring way to do what they've always wanted to do: play their favorite songs with their favorite bands," said Line 6 co-founder Marcus Ryle. "What used to be complex and costly is now easily accessible to all guitarists--so they can focus on playing instead of on how to get a certain sound."

"Line 6 is known for great guitar tones and rock-solid interfaces, which are a perfect fit for Jammit," commented Scott Humphrey, CEO of Jammit. "This is the missing link that delivers a turnkey solution for a deeper, more robust Jammit experience."

Released in 2011, Jammit is the first music software to isolate individual audio tracks within original multi-track master recordings. Jammit allows musicians to learn, jam and record along with their favorite songs as played by a variety of popular artists. Each guitar, bass, drums, keyboard or vocal track can be isolated for closer scrutiny, looped for extended practice or slowed down to a comfortable pace for beginning players.

The Line 6 Mobile In digital interface connects a guitar to the iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, and also unlocks added functionality within the Jammit app. When Mobile In is connected, Jammit will load amp and effect sounds custom matched to the song, automatically changing the sound when appropriate as the song plays.

As the highest-quality guitar system for iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, the Mobile In digital interface features professional specifications for rich, clear guitar tones: up to 24-bit/48 kHz audio quality throughout, and 110 dB dynamic range on the guitar input. Unlike other devices that connect to the analog headphone jack of an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, Mobile In attaches via the 30-pin connector for a high-quality, all-digital signal path. Mobile In also features a stereo line input for connection additional devices.

Jammit is available as a free download from the App Store. Songs range in price from $1.99 to $5.99.

"Compatibility problems, iffy physical connection"

If you're primary interest is in running Line 6's Mobile POD app, then this accessory is fine. Otherwise be warned that, despite the CoreAudio designation, this accessory has compatibility problems (i.e. it's presence is not acknowledged) with most other CoreAudio apps I've tested. It's up in the air at present as to whether this is Line 6's issue or Apple's issue. (Some reports indicate it is specific to iOS 5.) In either case, the product is largely unusable until one or the other takes the initiative and fixes the problem. So... sound quality is excellent; as advertised it is a HUGE improvement over any accessory that plugs into the headphone jack. Ease of use: well it's dead simple to plug it in, but then it may or may not work, so sort of a loaded question. Features: limited support for 3rd party apps = not good. Quality: I am really unimpressed with the physical design - the way it sits off-center on the iPhone, and the way it feels like it might detach (or even damage the IO port) in a stong breeze. Wow factor? Hmm, well I guess I did really want it before I tried it. :/ As for mfr support, here is a point of concern. Line 6 was always an excellent company in this regard, but I feel they are beginning to diversify too much, and it has taken its toll on their customer support. Their reps simply don't understand their own product line anymore, and realistically, how could they? I've read Line 6 reps posting misinformation about Bluetooth compatibiltity online, read more and more importantly I infer that Line 6 hasn't quite gotten this product working with iOS 5. In summary: If you want to Mobile POD, buy this. Otherwise, test first and be wary of OS updates.
