Descriptions du produit
L'AmpKit LiNK a été développé avec Agile Partners : c'est un petit boitier avec une prise jack instrument, un mini-jack pour le raccorder à l'iPhone et une prise mini-jack femelle pour y brancher un casque. L'AmpKit LINK intègre un circuit anti-feedback.
Bien entendu, l'AmpKit LINK peut fonctionner avec les autres applications d'enregistrement de l'iPhone/iPod Touch, Peavey nommant pour exemple GuitarToolkit... d'Agile Partners. Forcément.
AmpKit est le versant logiciel de la solution de Peavey. Il propose 15 modèles de pédales d'effets, 11 modèles d'amplis, 5 modèles de cabinets et 8 types de micros.
L'application est gratuite en version limitée : 3 pédales, 1 ampli (ValveKing), 2 cabinets (Peavey ValveKing 4x12 and ValveKing 112) et deux micros. Les autres modèles doivent être achetés séparément directement depuis l'application.
AmpKit propose en plus un métronome et un accordeur.
Un enregistreur est intégré à AmpKit qui enregistre à la fois le signal traité et le signal sans effets afin de permettre de changer les réglages ultérieurement. Un mode playback vous permet de charger des morceaux et de jouer par-dessus... et comme le mode d'import des pistes n'est pas précisé, il est à craindre qu'il ne s'agisse pas d'un choix depuis la bibliothèque d'iTunes mais qu'il faille enregistrer ses playbacks via l'entrée.

Pour autant l'utilisation est sympa, le son assez bluffant, mais on sent que le produit n'est pas robuste et bien fini.
Apogee a sorti son Jam, certes ce n'est pas le même prix, mais c'est clairement autre chose !
Il fonctionne parfaitement sur mon iPad2 (par exemple) avec Peavey Ampkit ... mais aussi Amplitube.
Je le recommande.
De plus, il est compatible avec le Mac et garageband et le niveau de sortie est meilleur.

I don't work for or get paid by any of these companies, I'm just an IT guy that went to Recording Engineering school and have been a bass player for over 20 years.
If you are thinking of getting one of these guitar/bass/instrument interfaces for your iOS device, just get the Ampkit Link and you'll be happy :)
The LiNK was noisy, but I found that fiddling around with the app settings helped resolve most of it. Still, there was an annoying popping, crackling sound that wouldn't go away. I looked online to find possible solutions for the noise, but most advice said to adjust the settings. In a few days, the crackling increased to entirely unplayable levels. I wrote the company and while they were extremely helpful, they eventually said there must be something wrong with the unit I had and asked me to swap it out for another LiNK. I tried three other ones in the store and they all had the jack issues mentioned above. One of the new ones had the same crackling and popping issue.
Ultimately I decided to go with a competitor's product. I tried it in the store as well and it performed exactly as expected with no problems. And no batteries needed, which works out as a plus too.
I'd caution anyone looking to buy one of these to either find a friend who has one or try the product locally first before buying it.
... IF you know how to solder.
Since I've been an electronics tech and owned more than a couple of electronics repair companies over the last 30+ years, it was no big problem.
I also ran JBL's electronics production line for a year.
That made troubleshooting and repairing this device fairly easy.
Even at the very beginning I found the unit to be very touchy. Intermittently getting power. The light would go off and the sound would vanish. Then back on. Then off. If you held it just right, it would work.
I don't know about you, but I find it very difficult to play guitar while holding this little white box with one hand...
I figured the problem could only be in a couple of places, so I pried the housing open, checked the power conducting contacts that utilize the ground of the instrument plug to make the connection. They seemed OK, but I tensioned them up and cleaned the contacts just in case.
A careful examination of the solder points showed cold solders on all 4 of the battery connectors on the circuit board.
I re-soldered all of them and it works great now.
Cheap construction and bad soldering technique in this device yields a very unreliable product.
It's made in China.
They should spend a little time and teach their 4 year-olds how to properly solder a connection.
It's not that difficult.
The folks at Agile were really helpful with resolving this, although it took a bit of time to figure out the return procedure with Peavey.
Below is my original review.
I received my AmpKit Link yesterday. Unfortunately, I'm having problems with the connector to the iPad/iPod. The input works only sporadically, output to the speaker is fine. Jiggling the connector sometimes helps, although I haven't found a reliable way of getting it to work. In addition, the slightest movement can cause the connection to break, resulting in pretty awful noise (similar to pulling out or re-inserting the plug). I'm not sure if the fit between the connector and the receptacle on the iPod is the problem, or if there's a loose wire in the connector itself. I'm sure it's the AmpKit Link - pretty much the same results for two iPod touches (2G) and an iPad, although the connection with the iPad is the most finicky one. A headset with microphone also works without any problems on all three devices.
It's too early for me to tell how well it works apart from that - I've only been able to spend about half an hour with it in a (more or less) working condition. For my needs, it seems fine. There is some noise, but with the noise reduction in the AmpKit app, it can be brought down to a tolerable level. During the one occasion when I had it working for about ten minutes, I noticed that towards the end there was a bit of crackling. Somewhat annoying, but tolerable. It's also possible that this was a side effect of the connection problems.
I don't hav eaccess to similar devices like the IK Multimedia AmpliTube iRig or Guitarbud Audio Interface, so I can't compare it against them. Since the AmpKit Link has some active circuitry and does impedance matching for the line input, it should be better, which seems to be the overall impression of the reviews I've seen.
The device is also rather light, and especially when used with an iPod touch the whole setup can be unstable. But instead of putting it on a desk, one could use an armband for the iPod and carry everything around.
It is activated when the guitar cable is plugged in. So forgetting to unplug it will drain the batteries.
Obviously I could return it, but given that it seems to be on backorder, I might also consider doing some surgery on it to find out what's wrong. I have an extra three-ring connector, and have tried to plug this one in, and just string two wires to respective terminals on the AmpKit Link connector, but didn't get an input signal.
I used it mostly in combination with the AmpKit app. The free version I used doesn't have a lot of selections in terms of amps and pedals, so if this is important, the paid version is the way to go. The main annoyance for me is the tedious way to upload backing tracks or songs to play along with: It has to be done one by one through a Web browser, which gets rather tedious after the first few.
Overall, I'd probably buy this one over the other ones. Hopefully the problems I'm having are not generic flaws - maybe it's just a result of getting one from an early production run.
