Using the effects slot of AB like a guitar pedal board?

I want to be able to use my guitar and amp, with the ipad and digital interface and AB in between, processing effects and functioning as a pedal board. Is it possible run my guitar through AB using only an app in the effects slot? It seems to me that when I tried this before it required me to use a guitar modeling app like Tonestack, Bias, and the like as the input source.

    Yes, you can:
    guitar -> interface -> CCK -> iPad -> interface -> amp (presuming you can use a line out from your interface to an input off your amp). In AB3 you can select your guitar (system Audio Input) as Audio Input, then put effect-app(s) in the Effect-slot(s) and choose your System Audio Output as Output, etc.

  • You can do that and select Audio Input as your input and Audio Output for the Output slot in AB.
    What app are you thinking of using?

  • thanks! And with v3.2 it's now possible to use my Behringer FCB1010 to change presets within AB3?

  • I use AUM like a pedal board and it works like a charm. I have audio units set up such as chorus, delay, etc set up in my signal chain and can rearrange them however i need.

    I do have it coming out of Tonestack first though. Why wouldnt you want to use tonestack? It sounds great. You can use a clean tone.

    My audio interface does have a direct monitor button on it and I know I could run it through that way as well if I desired. Maybe the guitar settings in tonestack arent as good as the bass amps? (i primarily use it for bass)

  • Do you right from the interface output to the input on the amp? When I do that it sounds like crap. Very thin and weak.

    Not yet but I'm working on that right now; out soon.

    Whoa, that'll be a game changer for us guitarists with pedalboards for sure.
