Hello folks,

I'm thinking of getting an iRig as I've just ordered a travel guitar.

I was initial thinking of the iRig 2 but then got concerns about latency so I then looked at the iRig UA where the processing is done in the unit not the smart device.

Main question :What do you think of the UA and are there any other devices at a similar price point and size? I'd like to be able to play along with YT backing tracks at the same time and it must be able to be used with headphone, must be compatible with Samsung android but having ios compatibility too would be great.

Thanks for your help.

Phil

For the needs you explain here I would also go for Mertay's advice and use an external processor instead - as many of them do have aux in and allow you to mix/blend in a separate stereo signal with your processed guitar tone.

From what I have heard though people seem happy with irig - and I have been look a little on this one:

...as a flexible solution for outdoors recording (using my studio mics, as well as direct plugging the guitar into the phone).
