Line 6 Sonic Port Transforms iPod touch, iPhone and iPad
into Studio-Quality Guitar System -
Guitarists can experience unsurpassed audio quality and
legendary Line 6 guitar tones while making music with iOS
Line 6, Inc. leading manufacturer of innovative solutions for
musicians, has now announced the new Sonic Port™ guitar system for
iPod touch®, iPhone® and iPad®. Building on the success of the
popular Line 6® Mobile In™ digital interface, the Sonic Port system
delivers pristine audio quality, legendary Line 6 guitar tones and
all the inputs and outputs needed to transform a mobile device into
a studio-quality music creation system.
"Sonic Port provides an easy way for guitarists to make
studio-quality music on their iOS devices," said Max Gutnik,
Vice President of Product Management, Line 6.
"Customers can pair it with CoreAudio apps to record, practice,
perform and more. For example, the free Line 6 Mobile POD app lets
guitarists dial in their favorite artists' tones in an instant,
while the Jammit app is perfect for practicing. All in all, Sonic
Port brings amazing audio quality and a great music-making
experience to iOS devices."
Sonic Port is a sleek, highly compact digital audio interface
that connects to an iPod touch, iPhone or iPad 30-pin or Lightning
connector, enabling guitar players to jam and record using
CoreAudio music apps such as GarageBand®, and gain access to the
acclaimed Line 6 Mobile POD® app. Unlike other devices that connect
to the analog headphone jack of an iOS device, Sonic Port features
an all-digital signal path resulting in best-in-class sound
quality. With 110dB of guitar dynamic range and up to 24-bit/48kHz
audio quality throughout, Sonic Port allows musicians to get the
most from CoreAudio music apps.
For forward-thinking musicians who want to use an iPod touch,
iPhone or iPad as the centerpiece of a mobile studio or as a
performance tool, Sonic Port provides a variety of inputs and
outputs for connecting instruments and outboard gear. A 1/4" input
makes it easy to connect guitars and basses, while keyboards,
mixers, CD players and other iOS devices can be connected via the
1/8" stereo input. For monitoring, users can simply plug in their
headphones or powered studio monitors and enjoy unparalleled audio
fidelity. Musicians can also connect to a guitar amplifier via the
1/4" guitar/line-level output.
The companion Mobile POD app (available as a free download from
the App Store) opens the door to an incredible collection of highly
prized vintage and modern guitar gear. The app includes 32 amps, 16
speaker cabinets and 16 effects-all of which can be fully adjusted,
mixed and matched to create a virtually endless range of tones.
Mobile POD includes over 10,000 tone presets created by artists,
Line 6 and other guitar players-and guitarists can also store and
instantly recall their own custom tones.
Thanks to a partnership between Line 6 and Jammit®, Sonic Port
instantly integrates with the award-winning Jammit app, allowing
guitarists to learn, jam and record along with original multi-track
master recordings of their favorite songs. When used together,
Sonic Port and Jammit form the ultimate jam-along experience. Each
track can be isolated for closer scrutiny, looped for extended
practice or slowed down to a comfortable pace for learning. When
used with Line 6 interfaces, Jammit loads amp and effect sounds
that are custom made for the song, automatically changing the sound
when appropriate as the song plays.
Sonic Port includes a detachable 30-pin dock connector cable and
a Lightning connector cable for direct connection to iPod touch,
iPhone and iPad devices. Mobile POD is a free download from the App
Store. Sonic Port is compatible compatible with iPod touch (4th and
5th generation), iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPad (3rd and 4th
generation), iPad 2, iPad and iPad mini.
Sonic Port is expected to ship in May of 2013. Learn more about
