I’m not a guitar amp nut; I have little appreciation for old-and-moldy audio components and purist babble (oh yes, I know! “Vacuum tubes! Blah blah blah!”) But a look at the promo video for Positive Grid’s new Bias iPad… Read more ›

The post Halloween Treat! Shred With The Hans “Guitar” Solo T-Shirt [Deals] appeared first on Cult of Mac.
I spend a ton of time at the computer keyboard, typing consistently as I write post after post. But there are times when I like to get hands-on with another activity that I enjoy: playing guitar. Now Iâ€™m not that great of a guitarist (I can handle myself sitting around a campfire and have learned […]

Imagine if games like Guitar Hero weren’t just a stupid waste of drunken time but actually taught you to play the guitar instead. That way, you could actually get some benefit from the hours you pour into practicing the game.
Tabrider is that game. It’s an interactive training app which you play with your real guitar. It looks pretty neat.
The app comes pre-loaded with guitar tabs (musical notation designed for guitarists) for tons of songs, and you [Read More...]
TC Electronic’s Flashback guitar pedal ($ 169) is a multitalented piece of gear. Its robust set of delay and loop features make it easy to get lost in hours of guitar playing, but when paired with a Mac or iOS device, it does something no other pedals can do.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Guitarists have long had the option of a wallet-sized amp with a headphone plug, so they can plug in their guitar and no one else hears them play. But what if you are stuck on a six-hour plane ride? You can’t take a nail clipper on the plane these days, let alone a guitar.
Well, if the TSA doesn’t confiscate your iPad, yo uczn [Read More...]
There are a whole bunch of ways a guitarist can hook his axe up to his iPhone, from fancy to totally ghetto (a cable from the guitar’s jack to the iPhone’s headphone socket). IK’s new iRig HD is at the fancy end, and it even works with your brand-new iPhone’s Lightning socket.
The adapter plugs into the USB-compatible Lightning port and feeds it a digital signal from an on-board 24-bit D/A [Read More...]
LAS VEGAS, CES 2013 – Last year, I gave my friend Rachel — a NYC singer/songwriter/comedian with an impressive array of musical proficiencies — my old iPad 2 as a gift. It was her first tablet, or even touchscreen device. I worried she wouldn’t know what to do with it, so when she opened the box and gave me an inquisitive cock [Read More...]
Da-duh-duh-da-duh-duh-da-DUH-duh. So goes the familiar tune of the iPhone’s default Marimba ringtone, as recognizable (and yet not nearly as annoying) as Nokia’s Gran Vals.
And yet what if you want to mix things up a little, but not too much? Greg Pierce, the wonder-developer at Agile Tortoise – responsible for Drafts, Terminology and others – has done the hard work for you, re-rendering iOS’ alert sounds on acoustic guitar.
Marimba is great, but you can also [Read More...]
The new TonePrint app lets you download guitar-pedal presets to your iPhone and then squirt them into your actual pedal via the pickup of your guitar. This magical-sounding ability is actually pretty simple, but that doesnâ€™t make it any less useful.
To use TonePrints, youâ€™ll need TonePrint-enabled pedals from TC Electronic. The usual suspects are all there â€“ chorus, delay, reverb, flanger and more â€“ and the pedals can be loaded with presets designed by [Read More...]
