    This review is from: iRiffPort – Digital Audio Guitar Connection for iPad, Phone, and iPod Touch (Electronics)

    As a beginning bass player, I use the iRiffPort (along with the PocketGK iPhone/iPad) app to practice. The GK app offers decent flexibility, but I can also use the iRiffPort in conjunction with GarageBand or a guitar/bass tuner on my iPhone or iPad. The sound is decent: it’s great at low-to-medium levels but tends to distort at high volumes. I don’t find this to be too much of an issue, since I am only practicing, but that might be problematic for those who would use it as a preamp for a performance.

    The iRiffPort provides an 1/8-inch line out on the iOS serial port end for speaker / amp output, and another 1/8-inch output on the guitar end for headphones. It seems like this would be redundant, but it’s actually useful to have the option to plug in either close to the instrument (which moves with you if you’re standing) or close to the iOS device (which is generally stationary). The setup could not be easier: plug the iRiffPort into your iOS device and your instrument, load up a compatible app and you’re good to go.

    Moreover, the customer support for this device is excellent. On two separate occasions I contacted the manufacturers (pocketlabworks) via the contact form on their webpage. Both times I received an email from them in within a couple hours addressing my concern. (It seems like they have only one person who does all of the technical and customer support, which I suppose is impressive in itself.) One of the occasions on which I contacted them was with regards to an iRiffPort that I had purchased that had stopped working. (I couldn’t find anyone else with the problem, so I guess it’s an isolated incident.) The customer support representative sent me a replacement almost immediately and at no cost to me. Apparently he even took the time to test the replacement himself before shipping it out!

    In summary, I recommend this product to anyone looking for a convenient means of practicing or playing their guitar or bass. The device itself is of solid design and construction, and the support behind it is superb.

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: iRiffPort – Digital Audio Guitar Connection for iPad, Phone, and iPod Touch (Electronics)

    I Initially bought an iRig to interface my guitar to the ipad/ipod. It was exceptionally noisy and in my opinion could not be used for anything but practice and even that wouldn’t be a great experience. I returned the iRig. At the same time I had also bought the Griffin Guitar Connect cable. It simply did not work at all, either with iPad2 or 3rd & 4th Generation iPods. It too was returned.

    After reading many reviews I chose the iRiffPort. The sound quality is light years better than the iRig right off the bat. iRiffPort has great sound. I’m not a pro by any means but I am more than satisfied with the sound and capabilities of the unit.

    The Pocket Amp IOS app is very nice, easy to navigate and sounds great as well. As others have noted it can be challenging to get the right mix between the background music and the guitar. Not much they didn’t include in this nice little app.

    I think the iRiffport really shines when paired with the Garage Band app. It just sounds fantastic, then again I’m not expecting Abbey Road as some reviewers seem to do. Not sure why but I have some difficulty getting Garage Band to connect to the iRiffPort. Fortunately I’ve been able to get it working by reinserting the plug & opening and closing the app a time or two.

    The biggest con to iRiffport is the connector. While the connector is eons better than anything that uses the headphone jack, I think PocketlabWorks should go back to the drawing board and come up with something to keep it better secured to the iPad/iPod. It comes out fairly easy. I can’t imagine anyone using it in a live setting for just this reason. A slight jerk on the cord and it’s The Sounds of Silence till you can get it reconnected.

    All in all I highly recommend the iRiffport to anyone looking to connect their guitar to an IOS device. It’s very sturdily built which puts it ahead of many of the other offerings in this field. iRig felt really cheap. That’s been a complaint of some of the Apogee users as well. I would expect the iRiffport to last a very long time. A nice product.

    ***Update 3/17/2012***
    After using the iRiffPort for a while now I’d like to update my review with a more positive report. I’ve found the trouble I had getting the unit to be recognized by Garage Band was easily solved by simply opening the Pocket Amp App first and then going to Garage Band and the iRiffPort is ready to go.

    The unit has stayed connected to the iPad much better than expected but I’d still like to see an update with a “squeeze-to-undock” connector.

    Also getting a good mix between guitar and mp3 playback in the Pocket Amp App isn’t as difficult as I originally thought either.

    I really do enjoy the iRiffPort. It sounds fantastic. I’m bumping this to a 5 rating.
