Re: Looking for apps for go guitar

Hi @CKa,

 

We are currently working on expanding the TC Helicon suite of apps but right now only the "Go Record" app is available.  This app is primarily focused on vocals but also works with Guitar.
The companion app for GO GUITAR and GO GUITAR PRO will be a powerful guitar amp-modelling and effects app which we're very excited about; it's still in beta, but should be ready soon! Your Go Guitar will also work with 3rd party audio recording apps.

Re: Looking for apps for go guitar

Ok, thank you, i will have to be patient then i guess.

The text on your website : 

" TC Helicon has you covered with an extensive array of mobile applications designed specifically for your GO GUITAR device, including effects, processing and much more – plus they are all free to download from your app store!" 

Together with the "QUickstart"  Youtube presentation by Elli at : 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AxbBNZI51Do

 sold me the device, but this now feels a bit misleading for somreason, sorry to have to say so...

But we will see if any of this  "extensive arry of mobile applications" will become available at any time soon, hopefully it will.

Small question : When is "Soon" ?

Re: Looking for apps for go guitar

Now the app "Guitar Rack"seems to be available for iOS BUT..

It does not recognize the "Go Guitar"interface..

All amp's and effects remain locked, and when unlocking it says "No TC-Helicon hardware connected"  .

So is this another broken promiss from TC-Helicon?

still no TC-Helicon app's for the goguitar

TC-Helicon prommised a "wide collectionof app's"for the basic "GO Guitar"interface at the time i bought i.

Since then only the "GUitar Rack" came available, but only for the "Pro"version fof the Go Guitar.

I feal that TC-Helicon has mis lead the buyers of the Go Guitar with all the advertising, prommises and included leaflet, since TC-Helicon has not followed up on those prommises at all..

Re: Looking for apps for go guitar

SO i understand that TC-Helicon will not support the Go-Guitar with the promised app ('s) like Guitar Rack, ?

Re: Looking for apps for go guitar

Hey @CKa,
Sorry to hear you're feeling mislead about getting Go Guitar...

 

Firstly, you asked about using Go Guitar with a PC.  There's an article in our Knowledge Base here that outlines the details, hopefully that gets you going.

 

As for mobile apps, Guitar Rack does indeed work with Go Guitar with the caveat it can't unlock all the elements, which you've already found.  You still get some things to play with though, here's what Guitar Rack offers without being unlocked (taken from this page):

  • 4 pedals:  Over Drive, Super Chorus, Small Phaser, Analog Tremolo
  • 1 amp head:  Super Clean
  • 1 speaker cab:  FBlues 1x12 Combo
  • 3 microphones:  Flat, Dynamic S57, Condenser kh40
  • 4 rack effects:  Super Chorus, Analog Delay, Analog Tremolo, Small Phaser
  • Chromatic monophonic tuner (polyphonic tuner must be unlocked)
  • All other features - including metronome, backing track import, recording, MIDI learn, and more

If that's not enough for you, there are lots of other guitar amp sim apps out there.  There are even a bunch of free ones - here are some free guitar amp sim apps I've used (on Android) and can recommend:  ToneBridge, BandLab, and Deplike to name a few.
