Use your own microphone to record music on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Whether you're practicing in your room, recording with your band, or just jotting down song ideas on the road, MicConnect makes it easy to record vocals on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Once your mic has been connected to the XLR input on MicConnect, plug the 1/8" (3.5 mm) audio cable into your device's headphone jack and launch GarageBand or other compatible app to get rocking. With built-in +48V phantom power, you're no longer restricted to just passive dynamic microphones. Grab your favorite condenser mic and get to work.

Not just for vocals

MicConnect makes it possible to record not only vocals, but amplifiers, acoustic instruments, and anything else, really, right into GarageBand. Recording guitars, mandolins, drums, or even podcasts are now that much easier.

Easy setup

Plug your mic cable into the front XLR jack on MicConnect, connect the 1/8" (3.5 mm) audio cable into your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch's headphone jack and launch GarageBand. NOTE: If you're using a condenser microphone, press the +48V button on the top of MicConnect to turn on phantom power (2 x AA batteries required, not included).

Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio  clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.

For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.

For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.

I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
