Ya, based on what you're seeing, I think I would do the same.
You can read all about the upcoming releases here:
They are currently awaiting approval by Apple.
Well, we just got through a big update, and it didn't include what you wanted. Sorry. But we do listen.
More guitars is a serious consideration for us. Autostrumming less so. But there are some other strong requests out there that might show up first.
In any case, in spite of any glib replies you might read, please do understand that we take every request seriously. Can't promise you'll get what you want, but we do listen.
If you mean automatic strumming patterns, GuitarStudio and iShred do not do that, and currently we have no plans to add that. There are some other guitar apps that do this, but we don't think it is in the spirit of what these apps are about.
Still, glad you are enjoying the apps!
Well, some joy then.
So were you able to record and play using the cable into the iPhone and another app (like the voice recorder)?
In reverse order ... does the cable work with other audio recording apps, like the built-in voice recorder? I'm guessing not, but try it. If not, then I can think of two possibilities:
1) lint is jammed up inside the jack. We've hit this a few times, and it can be very difficult to get out.
2) The plug is not making complete contact inside the jack. Unfortunately, we've heard of this a few times, also. Something about the exact sizing of the plug on some iPhones.
Your iPad 2 issue seems unusual. It is fairly common to get feedback with headphones when using very high gain distortion with listening levels because of the circuits inside the device. But into an amp the output should be a high enough impedance to not be a problem.
Do you have any way to test what connections are being made inside your converter, like with an ohmmeter? If so, can you tell me what is connected to what? Like if one of the headphone output lines was being connector to ground (the larger conductor on the plug to the amp), then I could imagine that being a problem.
Let me add that GuitarStudio *does* have 12-string sounds (and IMHO they sound great). It actually comes with 3, no make that 6, sounds. There are finger-picked and plectrum-plucked version of 6-string steel, 12-string steel, and 6-string nylon.
And FWIW, the string/pickup sounds for iShred are from a high-end Strat. And ya, Les Paul and Tele options would be nice.
Beyond that, message received. We'll see. Brownie points for the poem, for sure. :-)
Recently we have been busy on other things. We have talked about having more sounds (clavinet and Rhodes certainly being on the list), but have no definite plans at this point in time.
Thanks for you suggestions. No promises, but we will consider each of them. They all make sense.
Oh, no, let's not just give up!
There are a few things (at least) to try.
1. Do you have a headset (earbuds with a mic in the cable)? If so, you should be able to plug it in instead of the Griffin cable and run your voice through the live effects. That would verify that the hardware jack and the app are working. (What kind of device are you using?)
2. If the Griffin cable is working properly, then you should be able to use it with other apps that record and play audio. For example, the standard Voice Memos app. Does that work?
3. One more thought is related to the headset jack on the device. Believe it or not, we have see some that don't work because they have a plug of lint in them. And it can be very difficult to get out. We've had success with compressed air, FWIW. If you have a lint plug in there, then even a headset using the Voice Memos won't work correctly.
On a related note, we have heard some reports of some Griffin cables having plugs that do not connect completely inside the jack, like they are slightly the wrong size or something. Don't know if that might apply here or not.
I hope this helps. Let us know what you learn!
So first there is a question ... is the problem the app or the cabling?
Do you have a "headset" (headphones with mic in cable ... 4 bands on the 1/8" plug)? If so can you plug it directly into the iPad and run iShred LIVE and see if that works as expected? You should be able to hear your voice run through the effects.
If that works, then would you describe in detail how you are wired up using the Griffin cable and your amp?
For an E/B chord you will have to program it yourself as a User Chord. With standard tuning, the strings could be fretted this way:
X 2 2 1 0 0
Note that this is like a normal base E chord without the low E string playing.
At present there is no way to assign effects or effect changes to a chord button. Sorry. And at present we are not working on more instruments/sounds for it ... but you never know what tomorrow may bring. :-)
Good luck keeping your bandmates in line!
Well there is a way to get most of what you want today with the app. You can program user chords with only one active string on to each button. You can't get pitch bends this way, but you can have shake vibrato (if enabled in Settings).
From the right menu, hit Edit, the on the left picker column "User", then New User Chord on the right menu. X's on a string mute it, and selecting the other number will also show you the note for that string.
Hope that helps.
I could really use a little more insight and description here. Are you saying that you would like to be able to program buttons so that, when held, only a single guitar note will play? Can you give me a little more info here so that I don't misunderstand what you are hoping for?
When you hook up to your Mac, what software setup are you using to monitor/listen to the input? I assume that the Mac audio in to audio out is the real issue here, but it also depends on what software you are using.
Sorry, there isn't. Request received.
Very mysterious, truly. I would guess that you also have no problem recording into the standard voice recorder. Is that so?
Does your low recording level also happen when the amp is disabled?
And given the fact that it works fine with Amplitube, I can only imagine that this is an issue with the app, but one that we have not hit before.
I am actually out of the country currently, but will ask some folks back at the home base to see if they can duplicate this issue.
At present we have no such plans. If you have a particular feature suggestion, we are always open to considering those (although no promises). Maybe you have the next great killer feature in mind?
BTW, v1.99 of GuitarStudio and iShred are submitted for review to Apple. This version fixes the two issues you brought up. Thanks again, and look in about a week for an update.
Maybe I'm starting to understand. Tell me if this is getting it right.
Currently the HOLD vs. SUSTAIN option under Menu/Settings/Volume&Sustain, well if you set it to SUSTAIN it does not affect the play of any phrases.
Are you saying you would like to be able to have the Global SUSTAIN setting also affect the phrase notes?
Now if you were plugging into (low impedance) headphones, then I would say look here for a discussion of the problem:
But you say that you are going from the iPad into your amp, which should have a high impedance input, and not have this (iOS device) feedback issue. Hmmm. What is your cabling from the GuitarConnect to the amp? (The more details the better.)
And do you get the same or similar feedback issues just using headphones or earbuds?
Hmm, Mr Obtuse,
I'm not sure if PianoStudio can currently do what you want or not. I guess it would help if I understood more precisely what your running notes were like.
So I'm hoping you know that, in the phrase editor, you can extend the length of any note by holding one finger on the note and then sliding another finger to the left or right of the note to extend its duration. Does that help?
If not, then maybe we can't get there. But maybe you could at least let us know a little more about your intention.
1. Wow. Gotta say you're so right about that. While there is some confusion in the world about MIDI octave note naming, the generated note numbers are off by an octave.
2. And yup, that's a bug that we didn't catch.
You didn't miss any options ... the issue is on our end. Please look for an update soon that will address these two mistakes.
And let me also add *THANKS* for using our forum and pointing out these issues. While we cannot provide every user with every feature request, we do appreciate your feedback, especially on bugs like this.
No, it is strictly a foreground app. We need all the cycles for audio processing that we can get. :-)
Bottom line is high gain + iPhone headphone can = feedback. There's more detail about the issue here:
I hope that helps.
(Others please note that this is an iShred LIVE issue.)
