GarageBand as Amplifier

Recommended Posts

If I were to buy a cable to connect my guitar to my iphone 7, and then use garage band as an amplifier, could I bluetooth my phone to a regular speaker and have it play a distorted guitar effect?

Probably but I'd be worried about a) latency and b) getting any sort of reasonable volume.

I tried this with a Steinberg bass/Line6 guitar input/iPad/Garage Band and a Sony Bluetooth speaker.

It worked but there was a noticeable delay between hitting a string and hearing the sound from the speaker. It also sounded fine at low volume but couldn't handle being turned up.

YMMV of course but there are plenty of small, portable guitar amps on the market and I'd be tempted to go try one of those out first....
