It seems there are no bounds to what you can do with an iPhone, this latest app is a collaboration of Line 6 & D’Addario who already have a couple of iPhone apps the Chord Master and the Scale Wizard. Today they have announced MIDI Mobilizerâ„¢, a new portable MIDI interface, and Planet Waves® Rig Remoteâ„¢, new iPhoneâ„¢ software that will enable guitarists to control Line 6 guitars and amplifiers via Apple® iPhone and iPod® touch. Line 6 will manufacture and sell MIDI Mobilizer hardware which will be the interface for the Line 6 modelling amps and will let you change presets, turn on and off effects and adjust the settings.
“… the iPhone becomes the most portable and versatile editor and tone storage device for your Line 6 gear. Finding the perfect tone has never been easier.” – Marcus Ryle, Line 6 co-founder and SVP of research and development.
Sounds impressive, I wonder if similar systems will be developed for other modelling amp manufacturers such as Vox and Peavey? I can’t see them wanting to miss out.
