Winning App

This is hands down one of the best apps for guitarist, especially for beginners. There’s people out there who have taken the time to create the tones of some of your favorite artists to perfection. This helps tremendously when learning new styles and covers. Being able to play a song in its original tone has helped me learn songs without even looking for a tab. It makes that much of a difference.

I want to recommend to people who have had latency issues with Bluetooth on ios to invest in the camera connection kit and an audio interface. I use my audio interface with my ipad or iphone using this kit. Specifically a Scarlett 2i4 version 2. I have had zero issues connecting and have only had a few annoying app crashes which I’m sure will only get better with time. Using an interface allows me to play through my monitors and a next to nothing latency. The most frustrating thing in the world in music is latency and timing, this fixed that issue for me.

Also, the ability to use this app in garage band is incredibly useful. I use a clean amp setting in garage band and use Tonebridge to cover the rest. It sounds very impressive.

To call this app useful and fun would be an understatement.

AAA App for Guitarists, definitely a must have in your app collection. Very easy to use, I absolutely love it. 🙌

Major issues with Irig2 on iPhone

I downloaded this app. I played quite a number of presets and was astonished by the authenticity of the guitar tones of my favorite artists.

I own an Irig2. It works well with other apps such as Amplitude or GarageBand. However, this app has an issue I can’t figure out with Irig2. If I use the Amp output in Irig2 then the processed / effect sound of the guitar is not transmitted, rather only the dry signal. I have to use the headphone output of my Irig2 to get the wet signal and that sounded horrible unless I used the noise gate effect but by doing that my guitar tune lost all sensitivity and it is muzzled. I tired playing with volume and effect levels. No luck.

I wish the developers tested and worked out this “compatibility” issue with Irig2. It is a very common and versatile connector due to its compact size. I can’t afford to buy another connector due to cost and size of other makes/models. That would make this app a dream come true.

Developer Response ,

Hi Firas, sorry for the late answer. Your iRig 2 has a switch on it that controls the wet/dry signal that comes into your amp. It looks like the switch is turned to “dry”, thus not transmitting the “wet” sound with Tonebridge effect. Try to put the switch to the opposite position. If the problem stays, let us know at or on Twitter at @tonebridgeapp, we'll be happy to help you. Cheers! P. S. Will be very happy if you give us more stars in case our advice helps :-)

Cool app, garbage presets, bad purchase

Unless you want to waste all your practice time mucking through song after song that has 2 chords and sounds nothing like what you want to play. Stay way away.

Select a Neil Young Song, you get the Beatles. Select 10 other songs and they are the same 3 chords with the same setting.

Yes, the top 20 guitar songs are fairly good, some great. But 90% of the sample amp patches are garbage chords with nothing even remotely close to original sound.

Unless you just want to create your own, which it does well, or want a very limited number of accurate patches, pass this by.

Developers- go through the stacks of uploaded garbage and delete the crap. Check an upload before posting, or add a report garbage option that is actually monitored, and I’ll gladly give this app the 5 stars it probably deserves. But right now it’s just a frustrating time drain. You can only play Smoke on the Water or Sweet Child of Mine so many times. Total crapshoot beyond that. Even trying to listen to the original song data base is messed up. Neil Young gave me CCR. Clapton gave me Metallica. Lot of holes to ‘patch’. You got my money on a promise that wasn’t real. I’ll reload it whenever I see an update, but as of now, I’ll make space for BiasFX for a test.

Developer Response ,

Hi, we'll look into the issue, but before that we would like to understand what money did you pay since our app is 100% free? As for the presets, we didn't record an original demo for every preset (only 11,000 of over 17,000 presets have an original demo), so there may be presets that have the same riff as a demo. The sound itself should be original though, so if you try to play the original riff through the sound, it should be fine.
