Incident has introduced the gTar – an iPhone guitar:
Incident began out of a personal need for a guitar that could plug into the computer to compose music digitally. When the first functional prototypes started coming together, we were inspired by innovative musical instruments like the Monome and decided to try adding LEDs to the fretboard. We started to see how fun and easy it was for someone with no musical background to interact with the bright, colorful lights and we knew we had something worth pursuing.
See the kickstarter site for details.

Here’s a sneak preview of Yonac Software‘s just announced Shredder for iPhone.
Shredder is an app that lets you use your iPhone (or iPad) as a guitar synthesizer.
Here’s the official description:
SHREDDER for iPhone – Synth for Guitar:
Raspy synth swells? Gotcha covered. Bass-doubled riffs? Yup. Strings ‘n Things for beefing up the mix? Ditto. No special synth pickup needed.
SHREDDER is a synthesizer controlled by your guitar. Pop it on, plug in your guitar, hit the “Guitar Synth” button and start jamming. SHREDDER comes with a true analog synth engine including dual oscillators, 3 types of filter, a dedicated FM envelope as well as other goodies like dual LFOs, a virtual pedalboard and more. Chose among 100+ built-in presets, or create and save endless ones of your own.
SHREDDER comes with a dedicated guitar mix fader to mix in your guitar, and has attack and decay sensitivity faders to allow you to customize guitar tracking to your playing and input interface, whether its a USB in, a guitar adapter or the plain built-in mic. Headphones are required with use of the built in-mic.
We’ll keep an eye out for this. It’s officially ‘coming soon’.
Yonac Software has released Shredder 1.1, which now has an added ‘Chordmaker’ feature.
With Chordmaker you can create up to 4-interval chords for each note, or choose from 17 built-in chord definitions. You can also transpose on the fly and save progressions to file.
To play chords, you simply pick the root note on your guitar.
You can also use Chordmaker to control other virtual MIDI compatible apps (such as ORGAN+ seen here) by sending out auto-formed chord messages.
Shredder is available in the App Store.
Alex Skolnick tries out the Peavey AmpKit Link HD guitar interface at the 2012 NAMM Show.
He plugged a looper between his guitar and AmpKit, and went to work instantly. He starts with a clean jazz sound – but wait a minute and he gets the epic shred on.
- The only charging guitar interface: optional AC adapter charges your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch while you play.
- Stays connected: uses cable with dual locking connectors, rather than relying on friction fit – it just can’t fall out.
- Input and Output: LiNK HD is not only guitar in, but also headphone and line out.
- Control at your fingertips: control knobs for guitar input level and headphone output level. No need to launch an app.
- Mac and PC: LiNK HD works as a guitar interface for your Mac and PC, too. USB cable included.
- Built solid: sturdy jacks and cable connectors. Rubberized, non-slip coating feels great and reduces sliding.
AmpKit LiNK HD is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2012.
