    Anyone using Positive Grid Jamup? I took my guitar to a tech last week & we plugged in on his iphone & I would say its as good/better & easier to configure than a Line6 HD.
    Only problem it is not compatible with Android so I would need to buy an iphone/ipad to use it.

    I use it once in a while. When i need to be quiet, sometimes when i'm writing using ipad/iphone, and i've even set it up through a p.a. at band rehersal to see if it was a viable emergency alternative to an amp in a disasterous live circumstance. I don't think that i'm ready to take it out to a gig with my rock band, but i might use it to sit in with some friends' acoustic act. I use an apogee jam as an interface with it. It works well, sounds pretty cool, and is easy to work with. It's one of the few guitar apps that i have been willing to pay for the "pro" version of.

    Hahaha!:laugh2: the music creation apps are about the only reason iDo!:)
    But iDont blame you at all.
    I started with an iPad to use as a replacement for a Mackie Control Universal control surface, because it was smaller, cheaper, and portable(the MCU really did take up too much realestate on my desk, and i always did want to be able to control stuff while on the other side of the studio)....next thing i know, i'm multitracking on it directly, and don't feel much need for a field recorder(like my little Zoom H2).

    It's not for everyone though, i understand. That's just a bit of my justification for iStuff.

    I like Apple products, I'm just averse to any company that wants
    to run my life by linking and locking all my activities into their
    world.

    I recently bought a Nexus 7 tablet, and an HTC One X, and was
    shocked by the same behaviour in the Android OS.

    I've had to unlock and root them to get some autonomy back.

    It's no secret I'm also averse to YouTwitFace.

    I was of much the same mind, but gave in to the machine in exchange for a bit of office space etc.
    It does seem as though there are many creative developers that choose to develop for ios over android. My ios DAW of choice is a simple app developed by 1 person, and that makes me feel ok about it. The loss of control is a compromise for a stable platform for me. That said, my studio computer is a mutant XP, HP machine that i rebuilt in 2006 that still functions well enough to keep me happy, and visitors impressed. I rarely even allow it online...unless the speaker system is needed for an online reference, or i'm updating REAPER.

    Did you just call me twitface!? ;)

    Seems like a lot of HD500 users are selling up & using this now.
    I would like to give it a crack but not keen on buying Ithings when I have Android things.
    I have also noticed guys using at gigs with ipads, check out the Zombie....Not saying I am into his music but some interesting info...

    Sorry for dragging this up... but. If you're using this on idevices, don't update to latest IOS 8, Jamup will not work due to Audiobus non compatibility. I only found this out after updating, I'm now trying frantically to downgrade back to IOS 7.1.2.
