Line 6 and iPad in Harmony on Video

Published: Monday 23 July 2012

Line 6’s excellent Mobile In interface is a brilliant solution for those people who want to connect their guitar direct to their iPad tablet. While the Mobile In has a huge number of on-board amp and FX modelling options, however, that doesn’t mean it’s the only way to use this particular bit of hardware.

Line 6's product expert, Sean Halley demonstrates a different tack – using the Mobile In interface to hook up your guitar direct to Apple’s GarageBand software.

Garage Band is absolutely perfect for trying out ideas and capturing guitar with minimal fuss – great as a songwriting or practice tool, and in conjunction with the iPad and the Line 6 Mobile In, it's an incredibly portable way of getting music in your head down onto a track.

As you can see and hear it has its own formidable amount of modelling too – absolutely perfect for the user who’s already fond of Line 6’s emulation technology and just as easy to manipulate as well.

Endless Possibilities with Line 6 Mobile In

There isn’t a single word spoken in the video – the tones and effects on offer speak for it, we think!

The good news is that even if you're not planning on using Garageband, Line 6 Mobile In comes with a huge number of amps, effects and cab models built inside its tiny frame! Perfect for jamming and recording, these span all the genres, styles and models of hardware emulation that you'd expect. Here's a run down of some of the kit you can expect to find hiding in the Mobile In.
