    Imei and Ben from Seattle band Ben Union show you how to use iRig to connect your guitar to your iPhone, taking advantage of iPhone effects processing app Amplitube. iRig connects to the headphone jack on your iPhone, allowing you to connect a 1/4-inch guitar plug. Amplitube simulates a number of popular guitar effects, just like a pedal board would. Running your iPhone audio out to an external speaker or using the built in speakers on the iPhone allows you to get your guitar practice in without needing to lug around an amp and effects.
