"I was surprised—especially with the Deluxe app—at how well the blend of the natural acoustic guitar and electric effects worked"

- 2009 -

Guitar FX Echo is a digital guitar effect unit for your acoustic guitar.

The concept is simple: While you play your guitar, the microphone of the headset of your iPhone or iPod Touch picks up the sound of your acoustic guitar. Guitar FX applies the echo effect in real time to the input signal and outputs the result directly over the earphones. As a consequence, your acoustic guitar will sound to you just like an electric guitar that is plugged into an amplifier with a echo effect unit.

- iPhone with any kind of earphones
- iPod Touch 2nd generation with a headset that has an integrated MICROPHONE
The headset's microphone is essential, because the iPod itself does not have a microphone. We recommend the Apple Stereo Headset with integrated microphone. This headset is not the one shipped with the iPod, it has to be bought additionally.
