How to connect your guitar to your Android smartphone/tablet, iPhone and iPad using BandLab Analog Mini?
BandLab Link Analog Mini is a pocket-sized audio interface that lets you jam with your guitar over backing tracks anywhere you go, no amps or extra gear needed. Simply hook it up to your guitar/bass, headphones and the guitar effects and amp modeler mobile app Deplike.
BandLab Link Analog Mini lets you plug your guitar into your iPad, iPhone, or Android phones and tablets. Therefore, you can use these mobile devices as an amp simulator. As a result, you can hear your guitar sound through your headphones, external speakers, a PA system, or even your guitar amp.
How to connect:
- Plug the Analog Mini into the mobile device’s headphone slot.
- After that, connect your guitar into the input socket of the BandLab Analog Mini.
- Headphones or speakers go into the output socket of the Analog Mini.
Deplike provides different effects like delay, looper, and a few amps for free. You can purchase virtual guitar pedals and amps within the app. These include overdrive, wah, chorus, tremolo and phaser. Deplike offers 20 effects, 15 amp and cabinet models. They are available as a whole package for a much cheaper price compared to buying the actual pedals or amps. Moreover, the end result turns your phone into a virtual effects pedalboard.
However, there is more to Deplike than just a guitar effects app. Above all, it includes a guitar tuner, a metronome, and backing track feature. It allows you to import tracks from your device and jam over these tracks.
