Line 6 and Jammit Announce Enhanced Mobile In/Jammit App Functionality

When Mobile In is connected, Jammit will load amp and effect sounds custom matched to the song, automatically changing the sound when appropriate as the song plays.

Calabasas, CA (June 21, 2012) - 2012 – Digital audio technology innovators Line 6 and award- winning iOS app makers Jammit have partnered to create the ultimate guitar jamming, recording and learning experience for iPhone and iPad.

The companies have collaborated to create a system that allows the guitarist’s sound to instantly match that of the guitar part played on the original song. By integrating the Jammit software with artist sounds and the Line 6 Mobile In guitar interface, the experience of playing with the original master recordings is taken to a nearly magical level for players of all abilities and styles.

Released in 2011, Jammit is the first music software to isolate individual audio tracks within original multi-track master recordings. Jammit allows musicians to learn, jam and record along with their favorite songs as played by a variety of popular artists. Each guitar, bass, drums, keyboard or vocal track can be isolated for closer scrutiny, looped for extended practice or slowed down to a comfortable pace for beginning players.

The Line 6 Mobile In digital interface connects a guitar to the iPad or iPhone, and also unlocks added functionality within the Jammit app. When Mobile In is connected, Jammit will load amp and effect sounds custom matched to the song, automatically changing the sound when appropriate as the song plays.

As the highest-quality guitar system for iPhone and iPad, the Mobile In digital interface features professional specifications for rich, clear guitar tones: up to 24-bit/48 kHz audio quality throughout, and 110 dB dynamic range on the guitar input. Unlike other devices that connect to the analog headphone jack of an iPad or iPhone, Mobile In attaches via the 30-pin connector for a high-quality, all-digital signal path. Mobile In also features a stereo line input for connection additional devices.

Jammit is available as a free download from the App Store. Songs range in price from $1.99 to $5.99. Line 6 Mobile In is $79.95 (estimated street price) and can be purchased from a variety of retailers.

While Annie Clark was named the 26th greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone in 2023, she couldn’t care less about impressing an athletic stamp on either her sound or her image.

On her eighth studio release, the electroacoustic art-rock guitarist and producer animates an extension of the strange and singular voice she’s been honing since her debut in 2007.

“Did you grow up Unitarian?” Annie Clark asks me. We’re sitting in a control room at Electric Lady Studios in New York’s West Village, and I’ve just explained my personal belief system to her, to see if Clark, aka St. Vincent, might relate and return the favor. After all, does she not possess a kind of sainthood worth inquiring about?

On the Tuareg band’s Funeral for Justice, they light a fiery, mournful pyre of razor-sharp desert-blues riffs and political calls to arms.

Mdou Moctar, the performing moniker of Tuareg guitar icon Mahamadou “Mdou” Souleymane, has played some pretty big gigs. Alongside guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and bassist Mikey Coltun, Moctar has led his band’s kinetic blend of rock, psych, and Tuareg cultural traditions like assouf and takamba to Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and, just this past April, to the luxe fields of Indio, California, for Coachella. Off-kilter indie-rock darlings Parquet Courts brought them across the United States in 2022, after which they hit Europe for a run of headline dates.
