3 easy steps to use your iPad as a guitar processor


People playing the electric guitar via their phones are growing in numbers every day because of its simplicity and mobility. You can use Deplike guitar fx pedals and amps mobile app by connecting guitar to your iPad. Connecting the guitar to an iPad to use it as a guitar processor is really easy. Here’s a 3-steps quick guide for you:


Step 1: Grab a guitar


Well, if you are here then you probably completed this step way earlier. No one can easily resist buying a guitar because they are adorable. 

The connection to play the guitar through your smartphone or tablet has 3 components; the guitar, the phone, and the speaker/headphone. Having a guitar means you have your input device. The tip of your guitar jack is the input. Easy, right? Then we can move on to the next step.


Step 2: You need a speaker or headphone


Another super easy step. You have to hear your guitar through an output device. This can be your small speakers, your home studio, a 5+1 surround system, your smartphone earphones or your super cool headphones. Anything you can listen to music through can be your output device while using your phone as a guitar amplifier and a pedalboard. 

Now that we have our output on board, we can move on to the final step of the connection.




Step 3: An interface to connect your guitar to your iPad


We have the guitar, we have our speakers, how to put the iPad between them? There are connectors to act as a hub between the 3 components called interfaces. There are hundreds of popular interfaces for guitar players. They have a jack or USB connector for your phone plus they have their input and output slots for your guitars and speakers. They simply take your guitar’s sound, send it to your phone to process it, then receive the processed signal back from your smartphone and give it to your output device (headphones or speakers).
