No regrets whatsoever. Yes, it took me the better part of an afternoon to get all the software and the audio driver set up on my PC to where they're working perfectly, but the only reason it took so much effort is because I'm a certified moron. Once I got it working, it worked and continues to work perfectly. Guitar plugs into the iRig via a 1/4" jack, iRig connects to the PC via USB (cable included in the box), a cheap pair of my speakers connect to the PC, but they're only used as an interface for the much better headphones. And just like that, through the use of the AmpliTube software that's included with the purchase, I can tweak the virtual set-up to my heart's content and destroy my eardrums with the crunchiest overdrive at 2am, all while my family and neighbours sleep soundly. AmpliTube also works as a (VST) plug-in for DAWs, although after some fiddling around, my understanding is that it's limited to 64-bit ones.
Caveat: I'm not a sound engineer, a record producer, or a professional musician, so my ear isn't fine-tuned to every tiniest little imperfection. But I can say the following: if there's any latency, I don't notice it, and if the sound is supposed to be much worse than on a real amp, I'm not picking up on it. I bought this to be able to jam with headphones, and not only does it do facilitate that perfectly, but it does a whole lot of other things that I didn't expect but will accept as a pleasant bonus.
At home, my first impressions when plugging it into a macbook using Logic was 'meh', the difference in sound quality between a guitar recorded with a mains operated audioface and this was night and day. There is also latency that is long enough to be noticeable. Luckily for the music industry, lots of people don't have ears, but if you are fortunate enough to have them, you probably won't fall for the hype. So why did I not send it back?
On holiday it worked ok and enabled me to do what I wanted using garageband's built in amps. There are other linked downloads but it all seemed to want more money so I didn't pursue them.
To me, this is an overpriced way of recording your guitar for demo purposes whilst on the move. The sound quality is not there - all the emulated amps in the world wont change that - there's a reason why audio interfaces are plugged into the wall, and not powered by micro usb. Unfortunately it is the only way currently to do it, and that's the only reason why I grudgingly parted with £78 for this cheap plastic box.

The iRig HD 2 arrived well packed and after reading the installation manual several times, not really necessary but I was looking for possible problems of which there were basically none for a normal installation, I installed the iRig HD 2 onto my Windows 10 PC. I had hoped that an analog audio lead would not be required but unfortunately for me it was. Also a download and installation of AISO4ALL is required, this is normal, so that sound from the iRig HD 2 can be played back through the normal PC speakers. iRig HD 2 comes with a licence and download facility for Amplitube 4, the software to use with your guitar/bass.
After much fiddling with the audio settings I eventually got the iRig HD 2 working with sound coming out of my PC speakers. Most people shouldn't have an issue with this but I know from experience my equipment can be fussy. With Amplitube 4 running I was again able to play along to my backing tracks, the output from the iRig HD 2 being loud enough that the input to my audio on my PC could be set to LINE instead of MICROPHONE, meaning less background noise, in fact now I actually have to turn down the volume for my bass guitar so that I don't overpower the backing tracks. Previously with the Line 6 Gear Box Guitar Port GX I had to turn down the volume for the backing tracks to be heard.
Be aware that Amplitube 4 comes with a basic set of simulations for amps, speaker cabinets, pedals, rooms & mics and these are not as limiting as you might think, more can be purchased if you require. Using the basic set I was able to get a reasonable sound for my bass guitar.
Overall I am very happy with the iRig HD 2 and consider it a worthy replacement for my Line 6 Gear Box Guitar Port GX so if you are looking for a way of connecting you guitar / bass to your PC I would recommend the iRig HD 2.
I have managed to find my missing iOS purchases and do see the potential of this device. Great for playing electric guitar on headphones in the middle of the night. There area lot of virtual guitar pedals, effects, amps, cabs and mics to choose from. I am tempted by te Hendrix pack, but need to research further. I don't want to wind up buying stuff twice. Will write to the company again for clarificaton.
Ok, IK, I'm giving you a chance. We will see where this goes. I love the fact I can plug into my iPhone and have a lot of digital toys to make great guitar noises. Just wish you'd fix the artefacts and latency issues. Try a lot harder.
Thanks for what you got right.
Updated. Sent this piece of crepe back and bought the VOX mini amp plug in simulators. Bought the Clean, AC 30 and Bass units. They are freakin awesome. Sorry IK but your product sucks.
