    good for using the iPhone as a guitar tuner, but limited if you want to use it to record (no headphone jack!), July 13, 2011

    I think this is mainly intended to let you use your iPhone as a guitar tuner, and it probably works fine for that (I have a tuner so I don’t need to use the iPhone for that purpose).

    I purchased this little adapter so that I could plug my guitar into my iPhone 3GS and record my musical ideas in the early morning/or late at night without waking up everyone in the house (I use Moe’s Notes for this purpose, great app!). You plug your guitar into one end, and plug the other end into the headphone/microphone jack on the iPhone. However when I ordered it, I didn’t realize that it doesn’t have a headphone jack or any output, so you can hear what you’re playing into it! (I guess that’s why it is one of the more inexpensive ones for this type of thing) I decided to hold onto it because for my purposes, I don’t mind because I’m not really using it to do multitracking & can hear what I’m playing on the electric guitar without the need for an amp. However, if I wanted to record some instrument such as a keyboard that doesn’t produce its own acoustic sounds, I would need to add a “y” cable to the mix to monitor what I’m playing. And if I do want to get into multitracking, I would need something that has an audio output so I can hear the other tracks I’m playing along with. So I will probably eventually one of the more expensive cables (or make my own) that do have audio output. However for now I am fine with this, the direct in sound quality is nice and clear (clear enough where I can import the recordings into Cubase or Cakewalk on my PC and do overdubs later if I so choose). For now I am happy with it, it’s fine for recording simple ideas with an electric guitar or bass really fast – just plug in and go, you don’t even have to mess with putting on headphones! I imagine you could plug a drum machine, guitar/keyboard and vocal mic into a small mixer and plug that into this, then monitor using the headphone jack on the mixer. But like I said if I need to get more fancy I’ll get an input with audio out.

    So anyway this is decent for what it is, just realize it has that limitation of no headphone out.

    This review is from: Peterson Phone Accessories iPhone/iPad/iPod touch Musical Instrument Adapter Straight Cable (Electronics)
    I bought this adapter in order to use my iPod to record the headphones output from my band’s sound board at live gigs. It takes a 1/4″ TRS or TS plug and turns it into the iPod’s TRRS mic jack. I then use the built-in Voice Notes app to record the output and work with it later. The adapter is simple and seems fairly durable; it has strain reliefs built into the cable. One thing: I believe that the iPod’s jack only allows monophonic recording, meaning that if you send a stereo signal into the adapter, it will be summed and recorded as a mono signal. That’s not a problem for my usage pattern, but you might want to know about it if that matters to you.

    After using it for a while, I also bought the app for Peterson’s iStroboSoft, a digital strobe tuner. I like using it, but it’s very touchy, and depending on the instrument I’m using, it doesn’t always pick things up well. I suspect that’s more about the instruments and less about the adapter, though. I don’t know whether iPod mic jacks are high- or low-impedance, and I don’t know whether this adapter does any impedance matching, although I suspect it doesn’t.

    Bottom line, it works. I can get good-quality archive recordings of what the band sounded like, and I can use my iPod as a high-quality digital tuner. That’s worth the price of admission for me!

    good adapter to use with iStroboSoft app, January 6, 2013

    if you have the Peterson iStroboSoft app or any other tuner or strob-tuner type of an app or you came here from the Peterson site, this is perfectly fine and does what it is meant to do. some of those that are giving it 1 or 2 stars obviously picked the wrong item to begin with.

    this is meant to be used to connect your guitar (or instrument) cable to your iPad or IiPhone for the purpose of using an app to tune the guitar (or instrument). I’ve used it a few times now and it works without any hassles. it’s an adapter cable, so it’s not as if there are any parts to worry about messing up, right? lol! this is my preference, as I trust the signal through the cable much more that relying on the built-in mic of the iPhone to be as accurate without other interference in the room. but not this adapter, it’s great for that purpose.

    one of the very handy features is that the mini plug that goes into your iPhone or iPad has a small enough ‘grip’ or ‘base’ area around it so that it does not interfere if you have a thicker cover/protector like an OtterBox. when I originally looked for an adapter at the local electronics ‘shack’, the ‘base’ around their selection were too thick and wouldn’t clear the opening in the OtterBox. but that is not the case with this one.
