Guest review by Fred Wells
In the days of my youth, I was an active local DJ. I had a few nightly residencies and the opportunity to open for a few national acts. This was in the waning days of DJ’ing with vinyl — CDs were on the ascent and vinyl controllers such as Serato and other USB controllers were just emerging and incredibly expensive.
These days I DJ mostly as a hobby, doing it occasionally to relive the glory days and to just have a good time. While I love DJ’ing with vinyl, the one thing I have always hated is lugging around vinyl. I can assure you no vinyl DJ loves her records while carrying them back home at 3:00 a.m. This was one of the reasons I was excited to test out the iRig Mix, especially being able to have my whole DJ rig in shoulder bag that I could carry effortlessly.

Guy’s audio on the floor was pretty bad (Tim has the GOOD Microphone), so Guy waited until he got home to try and clean it up. You can be the judge of how well he (or didn’t) do. These are the last five developer interviews on the Macworld Expo floor from Guy and Tim.

I’ve always wanted to learn how to play the electric guitar. So, two years ago at the young age of thirty eight I finally decided to give it a try. Mid-life crisis you ask? Maybe, but I’m having a blast! Anyone else who’s worked hard at learning one of their favorite tunes knows the thrill felt when you finally hit that power chord riff or solo perfectly. I remember the feeling well as I was recently rocking out to Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me.” Hey, cut me some slack, I grew up in the eighties!
It’s this new passion for the guitar that made me raise an eyebrow when I first saw IK Multimedia’s new product, the iRig. The iRig is a cable interface that plugs into your iOS device’s headphone jack, allowing you to connect your guitar cable to your iOS device and a set of headphones or speakers. With a separately purchased app, Amplitube, your guitar is now connected to a complete stomp box and recording center.
