How to record ipad as guitar fx unit?
sorry if this is a dumb question - i've recently purchased a new ipad but unlike my old device, this doesn't have a headphone socket.
Previously i would plug my guitar into the ipad using an irig interface, go through some fx in AUM, and then route the output from the headphone socket into an audio in socket on my computer, using a cable. This way i could use the ipad as an fx unit and record the audio output into my computer DAW.
Now there's only one socket, so once i've connected my guitar to the usbc socket, there's no headphone socket for the output!! Aaaargh Apple!!
Would a simple dongle with a headphone socket option do the job, or would a more expensive audio interface be a more elegant solution?
