The GuitarJack 2 USB is SonomaWireWorks newest hardware, it is the ultimate solution to high quality input and output audio for Android, iPad, Mac, and PC users. At first glance it's the same as the GuitarJack Model 2 for iOS except it has a Micro USB port instead of the 30-pin iPhone port. It includes the 1/4" input for guitar and bass, an 1/8" input, and a headphone output.
How does it sound?
After running many tests on the GuitarJack 2 USB I think it sound fantastic. I tested the guitar input quality using an iPad running Ampkit and my MacBook Pro running GarageBand and Amplitube. I don't have an Android device so I couldn't test using the GuitarJack with that. I recorded my own soundtrack using the GuitarJack with my iPad running Ampkit and MacBook Pro running GarageBand and Amplitube. I also tested using it as an audio interface for listening to music, monitoring audio, and editing audio for videos and it works great and sounds much better than the built in inputs and outputs on my MacBook Pro. I used Velcro to stick the GuitarJack 2 USB to my desk and I use it everyday when I'm at home for all my audio needs. You can listen to the recordings I got out of GuitarJack in the video below. When using GuitarJack 2 USB for listening I noticed the output is much louder and cleaner than what you would get out of the built in input on your computer.
As expected from SonomaWireWorks the build quality is excellent! It's got a solid metal design so it is more than safe to carry around while traveling and incase you are worried about scratches the GuitarJack 2 USB includes a nice soft travel pouch just like the GuitarJack Model 2 for iOS did.
Who is this for?
The GuitarJack 2 USB is for musicians who play guitar or bass and people who do voice over work. It is great for general use if you need an audio interface that is small and high quality. I would definitely recommend this to a friend who is looking for an audio interface that is compatible with Android, iPad, Mac, and PC.
