USB inputs on amp

Recommended Posts

Normally when I rehearse at home, I just run through my K10 to stay consistent with how I'll be gigging, but the RCA inputs I hook my iPad up to are common to channel B which means if I want to also run both my keys and guitar (I run direct through a POD), I need a separate mixer. No biggie just extra stuff to hook up.

 

I picked up a little used combo amp for my guitar just for home (Line 6 Spider V 30). I've had it for about a week but just last night decided to check out the USB port on the back. I had assumed it was for some editing app or something, but to my surprise, iTunes played through the amp - great for practicing. Then I started thinking how cool it would be if the k10 had that. Then I started wondering if other powered speakers in fact DO have anything like that. Anybody aware of that? I know the key large has a USB audio interface....will a phone or iPad automatically play audio through that or does it require some special driver?

Roland has the MX1 mixer which has usb in channels on it, but AFAIK powered speakers leap frogged over usb to Bluetooth.

 

Which models have blutooth? I didn't even know about that. Both of these would seem to be very inexpensive additions.

Check out Gemini's latest stuff. I know, it's DJ gear. :sick:

But that's where the "new design" money is these days.

Also my buddy gave me a 1/8" to Bluetooth converter that I have not had a chance to mess with. He told me I could plug this into a powered monitor ( w/ a 1/8" to 1/4" adapter ) and

stream audio from a phone. There are many options out there.

Personally I like good old fashioned XLR.
