iPhone Mobile Guitar Rig iTrack Pocket
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

Want a mobile guitar rig for jamming and recording that fits in a small bag? Well if you’re comfortable with using an iPhone look no further. We are using an iPhone as the central brain for things like effects, amp modeling, and recording. For the interface we will use a Focusrite iTrack Pocket. The iTrack Pocket features an instrument line in with preamp as well as two mics (left and right). I’m recommending the Anker SoundCore for amplifiction. The SoundCore is one of Amazon’s best sellers. It is a great portable speaker with long lasting rechargeable batter and bluetooth for connecting wirelessly. There are several speakers on the market so you could choose a different one if you like for example you might want a waterproof speaker. For effects and amps I chose Amplitube by IK Multimedia. Amplitube is jammed packed with features and it can be expanded when needed via in app purchases.

What you will need for this setup:

1) iPhone. The iPhone will be the central brain for processing and recording your guitar.

BUY Apple iPhone 6 128GB Factory Unlocked GSM 4G LTE Smartphone, Silver (Certified Refurbished)

2) Audio Interface. In this case I recommend the Focusrite iTrack Pocket interface because not only does it have an instrument input it also has a couple mics.

Product description: iTrack Pocket is a portable, high quality stereo microphone and guitar input that lets you create and share exceptional videos using your iPhone. Designed for singer-songwriters who want their YouTube videos to sound as great as they look, iTrack Pocket lets you easily apply mastering effects and share directly to YouTube with outstanding quality your subscribers will love. iPhone microphones simply aren’t designed to do justice to the sound of vocals and guitar. That’s why Apple officially approved iTrack Pocket. It holds your iPhone at the perfect angle for recording and then captures your performance using a stereo microphone that eclipses the quality of your iPhone mic and a dedicated guitar input with built-in amp simulation. iTrack Pockets lets you capture audio in any of your favorite iPhone recording apps, including Garage Band. Alternatively, for the quickest and easiest way to create truly exceptional sounding music videos on your iPhone, we recommend you download Focusrite’s free Impact app. It enhances the sound quality of your videos using powerful mastering and audio effects, which you can apply with a few taps. Simply connect your iPhone, choose some effects, press record and edit in seconds. Your finished performance will be automatically mastered and uploaded to YouTube in HD video with high quality stereo audio. The stereo microphone captures clear, detailed recordings of your performance: vocals, guitar, piano or any other instrument. The dedicated guitar input and included amp simulation make it easy to record amazing sounding guitar at the touch of a button. iTrack Pocket fits in your pocket, is powered by your iPhone (iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 5) and designed to sound great in any situation, so you can use it wherever you take your phone. And you can effortlessly find the perfect setting for the clearest possible recording by letting iTrack Pocket take care of all the technical setup for you.

3) Amplification. Bluetooth wireless rechargeable speakers. I recommend the Anker SoundCore.

Dynamic Stereo: Enjoy crisp, energetic sound with impressive volume, powered by 2 x 8W stereo drivers with remarkable frequency response. Sublime bass is delivered by dual passive subwoofers.

Tough Tech: Tough Bluetooth speakers. IP67 waterproof (1m depth) and dust-tight. Shock resistant.

Bluetooth 4.1: Advanced Bluetooth tech offers an extended 66ft range (outside) so you can take your phone further without losing connection and make hands-free calls with the built-in noise-canceling mic.

You can even charge your phone or tablet with the charging port. Playtime varies according to volume level and audio content.

BUY Anker SoundCore Bluetooth Speaker with 24-Hour Playtime, 66-Foot Bluetooth Range & Built-in Mic, Dual-Driver Portable Wireless Speaker with Low Harmonic Distortion and Superior Sound – Black

4) Effects and amps. I recommend the iRig Amplitube app.

AmpliTube gives you 17 creative stompbox effects, 8 amazing amps, 10 speaker cabinets and 2 mics, 1 Loop Drummer groove from the Rock pack and 1 active track in the recorder section. You can of course expand this selection via a massive library of over 100 pieces of gear that includes amps and stompboxes from the world’s best brands like Fender™, Soldano®, Ampeg®, ENGL®, Orange®, T-Rex® and many more.
