    how do you guys set up your volume levels with the Jamup while recording? I'm not getting much gain (volume) while recording with it..

    Does the Line6 SonicPort charge the iDevice?

    Newp, but AmpKit LiNK HD does.

    Anyone using L6 SonicPort w/ Jamup Pro XT having tons of snap/crackle/popping especially when low latency engaged? I saw someone had this issue on like page 5, but no one else had experienced this issue yet...

    I'm running a jailbroken 4s, and I've tried killing all programs/processes, airplane mode...everything I can think of...even when the guitar isnt plugged into the SonicPort, the thing is like rice crispies in my ears. Also, the Mobile POD app is silent, but not as good as jamup...all of that leads me to think I've isolated the issue to Jamup itself, and not the SonicPort...but it could also be that my phone doesnt have the CPU power to run this app how you guys are experiencing it.

    I may have found a reason to finally purchase the iPad, cause right now, I have no idea how anyone is like "Kills PODHD!! I'm selling mine!"

    Just thought of this; it could also be that since my 4s is jailbroken, I'm not running the most current iOS?

    Jamup does not seem to be like being run on jailbroken devices.

    I had that issue with my sonicport and iphone 4, but it runs perfectly fine on my brothers 4s. Must be the jailbreak, if thats the only difference between my brothers 4s and yours.

    I sent them a similar message when I first got it also. I'd encourage others to do the same the more requests they get the more clear it is that users are interested, plus it's another good way for them to distinguish from the compettion, since so far, no other iOS sim I know of supports it.

    I have serious thoughts about an iPad Mini->Power Amp->Cab practice set up or "light rig", since I have a nice 2x12 cab sitting right next to my computer. It'd be fun to A/B it versus one of my rack pre amps or try to tone match it, etc.

    maybe I missed it, but how does this thing handle patch changes as far as spillover/latency/loading new patches?

    Super fast, pretty much as soon as you tap it/change.

    Anyone prefer an ipad to a ipod for using an ios?

    Seems like the larger screen would be beneficial... for theses older eyes. :lol:

    Also, does the ipad mini have the some A6X processor as the full size ipad?

    iPad mini uses the same processor as the iPad 2. Wait another month if you're planning to buy a new iPad as the full size and mini are getting new A7 processors.

    I just found this thread and I LOVE it!! :D

    I used to have an Apogee JAM that i regrettably sold.. I'm going to mov back to iPad amp modelling again next week and I would like tips on what interface to use!

    I've heard alot of good stuff about the SonicPort, but I don't know alot about the other interfaces that are available now, except the JAM that I really liked. (Though it was a bit plasticky)

    So.. educate me, folks! I want to stay under about £80 for this one.. I can get a Sonicport for about £77, is that a good deal?

    Oh, and what interfaces can double as a pc/mac-interface aswell? What ones lets me charge my iPad during use? (Not that important, but could be useful sometimes I guess..)

    Thanks! I'm reading through the thread again to see if I can gather something useful as far as info.. :)

    "Plasticky"?

    Meaning sounding like plastic or just a cheap feel in construction?

    Sorry for being a little unclear!

    The construction. It felt plasticky(duh, the case is made of it..) and like it could break easily (the jack isn't really fixed to the plastic shell but is floating around inside, so if you were to push the jack in, it would most likely stick there and you would have to pry the casing open.

    Shouldn't be a problem though, but it's the small things that make a big difference in the end! The sound quality was nothing short of stellar.

    Check out the upcoming Griffin Studio Connect HD. They got it right this time. Bigger opening for ipads with cases (otterbox etc), more I/Os including usb and midi ins and out to hook up usb keyboards, controllers, phantom power for mics. So im looking to try this in the future. Guitar>StudioConnect HD>ipad (jamup)into either pc with reaper, or live into poweramp and cab. Im gonna control it with my line6 shortboard>kenton usb to midi host> StudioConnect HD

    There is a pretty cool list of interfaces with support info here:

    Auria by WaveMachine Labs - Auria Audio Interfaces

    I can't vouch for how current it is.
