Line 6, Inc. and D'Addario announced tthe development of the MIDI Mobilizer, a portable Musical Instrument Digital Interface device, and Planet Waves Rig Remote iPhone software for use with Apple iPhone and iPod touch using OS 3.0.


When used with Rig Remote, the forthcoming iPhone app from musical-instrument company Planet Waves, MIDI Mobilizer is designed to give guitarists the freedom to control Line 6 Variax digital modeling guitars and Vetta II digital modeling amplifiers.

Digital modeling technology, which was pioneered by Line 6, makes it “possible to put the sounds of hundreds of amps, guitars and effects into one system, ” the companies stated. Digital modeling “greatly simplifies the amount of gear needed for a guitarist to play a wide range of sounds.”

Line 6 Variax guitars are designed to model the distinctive sounds of 25 instruments including electric and acoustic guitars, a banjo and even an electric sitar. Line 6 Vetta II amplifiers feature models of 80 guitar amplifiers, 80 effects, and more. All models can be controlled with Rig Remote and adjusted in real-time via its realistic, amp-panel-inspired knobs, the companies say.

Planet Waves’ Rig Remote app features a graphical display that takes a nod from the Line 6 software commonly used to adjust Variax and Vetta II tones via personal computer. The iPhone display and touch screen supposedly make it simple to scroll, choose and adjust models of amps, guitars, pickups, pickup placement, alternate tuning and more. Guitarists can save their favorite settings and apply them to any Variax guitar or Vetta II amplifier.

MIDI Mobilizer and Rig Remote 1.0 are currently in development, with pricing, availability, and more detail on the complete feature set to be announced at a future date.
