Introducing the all-new Steel Guitar 2.0 — built COMPLETELY from scratch with bigger tone, more soul, and better features than ever!

Combining a large collection of unique guitars, all-new realtime effects and amps processing, and a playing surface more expressive than ever, Steel Guitar is easily the most realistic sounding guitar on iOS.

For unprecedented control over your tone, expand to 10 unique guitars, 8 iconic virtual-tube amps, and 16 classic effects! Build up your signal chain any way you want, thanks to a simple drag-and-drop interface that accommodates all your amps & FX connections, in any order.

Steel Guitar’s axes range from 6-string electrics to acoustic, 12-string, and to even 8- and 10-string pedals steels. Amps include all the important models of the last 60 years — each one complete with channel switching, adjustable gain, and EQ. The effects include painstakingly designed virtual-analog overdrives, fuzzes, wah, tape delay, reverbs, and more!

With the PRO Pack or The Whole Enchilada, gain access to Steel Guitar’s powerful tapedeck complete with recording, looping audio copy/paste and a plethora of other sharing options; or harness Steel Guitar’s powerful, user-friendly MIDI Learn to control your effects, amps and guitar parameters!

Use MIDI or the accelerometer to control string-bending pedals for authentic pedal steel sounds — and you can easily configure pedal-to-string assignments via the built-in copedent matrix.

Steel Guitar 2.0 is fully connected, too. With Inter-App Audio and Audiobus available out-of-the box, connect Steel Guitar to your favorite iOS DAW and jam away!

Genuinely Nice App

Love the app, very unique and creative. Would be complete imo if it included a Nylon String Guitar. I know there are no steel slides in Nylon Guitar playing, but this is todays’ music. Composition and creativity is what you make of it, so the limitation of not having one only leaves room for the next guy to go for it. My two cents.

What Have I Been Missing?

I bought this app when it first went on sale and picked up the in-app purchases. I played with it a couple of times then I never touched it again until today. 5 years I’ve had this and not used it’s amazing tone and vibe. Over the last couple of years I’ve learned a bit about slide guitar so I applied that to this and in no time I was playing Ry Cooders Feelin’ Bad Blues. The only real downside I see with this is that I can’t mute the strings that are ringing when I move to other strings. That’s right hand technique. But you can adjust the dampened sustain so it creates an imperfect approximation but still usable. I highly recommend this app even if just to try killing time in the waiting line at your local rat race. It sounds great and it’s fun.

Marvelous app... as soon as I figured out to play the bar on the right!

It took me a bit to get sound out of it. I am used to playing the strings, but here you need to play that pickup pad on the right! Fantastic sounds. Love Kauldron and Magellan as well! Thank you!

Exploring and have discovered this only works using the onscreen fretboard. Disappointing, as I would love to access the sounds with a keyboard. Any chance of that happening?
