This is actually pretty big news. The Line 6 app has been around a while and has a lot of fans but has only ever worked with Line 6’s own IOS interfaces, great if you had one, frustrating if you did not. Until now that is, for now Line 6 have opened up their app for other interfaces though an in-app purchase.
So that means that all you non-Line 6 hardware owners out there now have access to 32 amps, 16 cabs and 16 effects, plus thousands of presets for the sum of £13.99. Which does appear to be a bit of a bargain.
I’m testing the app out now and will have a review out shortly. In the meantime, here is the press release…..
For years, guitarists have relied upon POD tones in the studio and on stage, and the Mobile POD app provides classic POD processing for free when using our Sonic Port or Sonic Port VX interfaces” said Marcus Ryle, Chief Strategy Officer at Line 6. “With the release of version 1.7, all iOS Core Audio-compatible interfaces can have the award-winning Line 6 guitar tone used on countless hit records through in-app purchase.”
