Line 6 Mobile In + Mobile POD
Line 6 announced the Mobile In digital input adaptor and the Mobile POD guitar tone app.
The new hardware and app are designed to allow guitarists to connect an electric guitar to their iPhone or iPad, to give them the same sounds they’d get if they were playing from a wide variety of guitar amplifiers, speakers and effects including distortion, chorus and reverb.
Mobile In and Mobile POD are designed to turn your iPhone or iPad into a Line 6 POD multi-effect device with tweakable tones, simultaneous effects and Line 6 guitar amp and effect modelling.
The new free Mobile POD app includes collections of 64 models of guitar gear including amps, cabinets, stompboxes and rack effects. Users can mix and match the models to build a variety of tones, which can then be saved as presets. Also included with the app, free of any in-app purchase, are about 10,000 hand-crafted presets created by artists, Line 6 and other guitar players.
Unlike other analogue adaptors that plug into an iOS device’s headphone jack, Mobile In digital input plugs into the 30-pin connector on the bottom of the iOS device. This digital connection is designed to enable the adaptor to offer better quality audio specs. Mobile In supports up to 24-bit/48 kHz digital audio. The Guitar input features 110 dB dynamic range. The stereo Line input, which is suited for sending keyboard audio or other standard mono or stereo line-level audio source to your iPhone or iPad, has 98 dB dynamic range. Mobile In is a digital input adaptor for use with CoreAudio guitar apps including GarageBand for iPad.
Mobile In includes a 6-foot guitar cable. Mobile POD is a free download from the App Store. Mobile In and Mobile POD are made for iPhone 4, iPad 2 and iPad.

Mobile In and Mobile POD will ship Autumn 2011.
