From wearing headphones and playing as loud as I want and not waking the wife, to porting app effects AND songs through my amp, iRiffPort just works. The product quality in both construction and function is outstanding. Though I can not compare with other products such as iRig, the iriffport sounds supurb, and the available apps are very nice too. I'm using PocketAmp to learn solo's of favorite songs, backing tracks to practice my own style, and even listen to a collection of short riffs bought on CD. I can target the area of interest, slow down (or speed up) and repeat the selected area until my heart is content. My only wish is that it worked with more apps. Though the iRiffPort is a bit on the spendy side, I feel it has performed at that price point and I would buy it again, and again, and again. :-)

The iriffport device is a great concept with a few issues. First is that if you plan to use it for heavy metal distorted sound, you will probably be happy. On the other hand, if you want a clean guitar sound on any occasion, this has problems. Even with the clean option and gain set to minimum, playing either of my electrics through it results in clipping distortion. I think this may be a fundamental design flaw with not enough dynamic range on the input. It may be possible to dial back the guitar volume to improve it, but then it's difficult to get the volume loud enough. The other problems are related to the Pocketamp software. It can be very annoying at times. First is the dialog box that pops up every time you start the software with iriffport connected telling you that it found the device. Even after you click the "don't show me this again" button, it completely ignores your request and next time you start it, the dialog is back. I also don't like the way it automatically goes to the next song when playing along with a song. Most often, this would be used to work on one song for a while, so when it gets to the end it should just stop, not start the next song. I really like the ability to play along with anything in your library and do the looping and speed and pitch adjustments. However the pitch adjustment would be infinitely more useful if it allowed changes finer than a full semitone. There are many songs that are not right on pitch so being able to adjust to something that is just a bit off would be great. Overall a 3 star for me.

    Comments about PocketLabWorks iRiffPort Guitar Interface for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch:

    My biggest grumble about it is that it's app does not shut down the view screen, which quickly depletes the battery. The screen brightness must be manually turned down to add to battery life.

    Also that the interface is not availible for the iPhone 5/s Lightning Port, so one of Apple's expensive 30 pin female to Lightning Port male adapters must be bought. The generic cheapos do not work.

    Comments about PocketLabWorks iRiffPort Guitar Interface for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch:

    I've been using the iRiffPort for a few days now. I'm very impressed with the sound quality it produces. Currently I'm using the Jamup Pro XT app, 2007 Gibson Explorer Gothic II. I'm using it primarily for metal gains and erie clean tones. So far it works amazingly with my iPhone 4. The only problem I have with it is the design. Every guitar cable I've ever used has failed at some point. And since this is basically a guitar cable at one end I'm wary of how long it will last. It is made very well and seems very solid. The price is what sold me. An iOS guitar interface that is cheaper than the rest that are 30 pin connections. Anyway, so far so good. I don't regret this purchase one bit. (yet)

      I have tried some of the others,should have ordered this one first.Flawless with Garage Band.I really like the ease of usage with the iRiffport.you could download the pocket amp,as I did,But Garage Band is all you really need for this firecracker.If the iRiffport combined with Garage band does not put a smile on your face you need to check your pulse.Simply put.AMAZING.Order yours today and download G.B. and you will never look back.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.If you write songs or just play music you really need the iRiffport.I Love It.Thank you Musicians Friend.

        When this arrived I unpacked it,plugged it in,downloaded the amp and clicked on my Garage Band and to my amazement it worked instantly.(5mins)easy to learn even without downloading the tutorial from Apple.Kudos to Musicians friend for putting up with all of the interfaces which I tried and returned.I am keeping this one.The best of the iPhone interfaces out there.Trust me,buy this one FIRST and avoid brain damage.This is compatable with garage band,the suggested amp download,my mustang III amp and amplitube from fender, and I am certain it will be compatable with things I have not tried yet,more on that later.this iRiffport is irreplaceable for my home studio.

          Comments about PocketLabWorks iRiffPort Guitar Interface for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch:

          I use the iRiff Port with the brilliant Gallien Krueger bass amp app and a pair of Ultrasone Pro 900 headphones...wow! It sounds amazing! If you play bass in any kind of decent cover band or do fill-ins etc this is the only way to go. I also use the line-out to a powered 12inch cab and voila, an AWESOME sounding practice amp. Bear in mind (note to negative reviewers) that the app is where the volume and sound come from. Some apps are designed for the headphone-out jack. Iriff wisely uses the much better multi pin output. If the sound is poor change the app!

            This is an excellent product that works with no feedback or static. The sound is clear. The only problem I had was I did not read the directions and had the headphone plugged in the wrong jack. Goes next to guitar. I will say this volume will be lower on low output pickups but high quality pickups sound can get really loud. Works great with Garageband and Amp Kit for I phone.

            Comments about PocketLabWorks iRiffPort Guitar Interface for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch:

            This is an amazing product that enables you to tap intto some powerful apps on your iPad. I've been user of "headphone amps" back from the late '60s when I was plugging into my Pioneer stereo & wearing Kossheadphones. I'm primarily a bassist but play a lot of guitar at home. I can say without hesitation that nothing touches the iriffport plus iPad combination for fidelity and functions. The setup is simple & uncluttered. Standalone devices burn through batteries, and are limited by the hardware. Two things can really help you get the most out of the iriffport...use some good headphones (I.e. not earbuds), and explore a bunch of apps. The company's customer support is great. My first iriffport had a faulty connector...I contacted the company, they responded immediately & fixed the problem right away.

              Comments about PocketLabWorks iRiffPort Guitar Interface for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch:

              For the money, this is the best interface for the iDevice. Using the digital connector produces a clean sound unlike headphone jack interfaces. Despite the earlier reviewer, I haven't had any issues with volume as there is an onboard mixer in both JamUp and PocketGK to balance the mix. Theres no power input so you'll be running off the iDevice battery. It's also a glaring white cable, something I'd wish they made in black. The cable is light but the connection is robust enough to handle a gig if needed. The line out is perfect for running into a DI box and into the PA. The iriffport is the primary way I practice these days too. Bass, iPad, iRiffport. Headphones. What else does one need?
