Peavey AmpKit Link HD
Peavey is now shipping the upgraded version of their iOS audio guitar interface, the AmpKit Link HD.
This new interface was developed in cooperation with Agile Partners, featuring twice the fidelity and convenience compared to the original.
The new Peavey AmpKit Link HD now utilizes the USB digital connection of your iOS device, this move is said to eliminate crosstalk and latency, while improving the overall audio quality.
Connection is straightforward, just plugin your guitar or bass directly into the instrument input and connect the USB end to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. It features a snug-fitting cable that will secure your connection while at the same time maintaining a strong audio signal. You can even charge your iOS device when AmpKit Link HD is connected to its optional AC adapter.
Another nifty feature of this digital audio interface is that it can easily interface with your Mac and PC. You no longer have to carry a separate interface for your mobile iOS and computer.
For added convenience, AmpKit Link HD can now send a signal to a headphone output and a line output, allowing for quick connection to amplifiers while still retaining headphones signal for monitoring.
Having been built by Peavey, this interface comes with sturdy jacks and cable connectors and a rubberized non-slip coating that’s easy to handle. The unit provides immediate input level and headphone output level control via the knobs located directly on the unit, which makes adjustments quick and easy. You can also avail of add-on accessories such as a belt and strap clip, which makes the device mountable and more portable.
Although it will work with other iOS audio and guitar apps, AmpKit LiNK HD works best when paired with the AmpKit iOS app. This app has a gear store with a huge selection of amps and effects, including 19 amps with 35 separate amp channels, 22 effects pedals, 20 cabinets, 8 mics and more gear on the way. AmpKit also includes popular Peavey amps like the Peavey 3120, Peavey 6505 Plus, Peavey 6534 Plus, the Peavey Classic 30 and Peavey ValveKing.
The AmpKit Link HD is currently retailing for $99.99. For more information, you can visit Peavey.

When you consider how much time and effort you put into getting your rig to sound just the way you want, it makes sense to ensure your guitar cables are also up to the job - after all they're an important part of the tone chain. Also remember that occasionally things will go wrong, so always carry at least one spare cable to gigs and rehearsals.
