In this instructable, I will show you how to make a cable to use your iPad/iPod/iPhone as a guitar amplifier for cheap.

Step 1: Materials

All the materials you need are in the picture. Hover over the yellow boxes to see.
It doesn't work, I don't know why because I have all I need. I connect with my tv or my stereo and nothing. Help!
what do you mean whit "white and yellow go to stereo"? will they work as an extra output for the audio, you connect them in a tv or something like that?
Yes, you can connect them to a stereo system, or a TV if you wish, for audio output.
What if you want to make it like the iRig? Like with the headphone jack, what would you do>?
The amplitube irig is a good product, I use it with both my acoustic guitar and electric bass to record in GarageBand on my iPad2. There is a slight hiss when I use my acoustic, but the noise disappears when mixed with other instruments. I can also limit the amount of hiss by turning up the Noise Gate in GarageBand. Has been a great tool to help with getting my own sound into the music I am recording. By the way, It's available at zeromartz.com
So you can use another adaptor so you can plug the whole thing to an amplifier, right?<br>And also, will the input on ipad be stereo as well? Cuz you only have one mono cable getting the guitar sound to it....<br>Really useful stuff, bro!<br>Thx
Awesome idea! I'd been wanting to hook up my guitar to Garageband on iPad but just couldn't justify spending $30 on the iRig or similar.
When i say male-to-male here, i mean female-to-female
Don't they plug male-to-female, thuogh
What do you mean by that?
Just disregard that comment. I don't even know what I'm talking about, I just pretend to
OK :-)
