Sessions!

Post by elbowpipe » Wed Jul 15, 2020 9:11 pm

Has anyone taken his WARBL into a session? I suspect there are challenges with this. At present, even if I line-in from headphone jack on my iPhone to a bluetooth speaker capable of playing music on my phone pretty loudly, I'm not achieving a volume capable of matching (say) a fiddle. This is even with "Force Max Velocity" switched on. I'm sure a proper PA setup would work, but I was kind of hoping for a Lo-Fi solution.

In case anyone has a similar query, the answer is probably hooking up from iPhone/iPad to a Roland Micro-cube. I'm using a little guitar amp which is pretty loud.

Cool, thanks! I suspect some of the other small external speakers would be loud enough too. I have a small Bose one that gets quite loud. One thing that is for certain is that you can’t connect by Bluetooth, because the latency is far too great.

If you want super-lo-fi, google "acoustic iphone amplifier" - they do around +10dB - but you won't be able to use the iPhone easily while you are using one, so you'd need to be sure you can make any changes you need mid-session via the WARBL buttons. If it is loud enough it might be a good option, esp. for performances, as some of them are super-beautiful.

Also, if it's a session with someone else who already has an amp'ed instrument, you could get one of numerous super-tiny mixers and piggyback on their equipment.
