Felix – Yet Another Mobile Guitar Rig

Felix-the-Guitar-Bag

After more than a year of watching dust gather on a pile of depreciating music gear, I now return to my mobile guitar rig project. Having vacillated between a computer DAW approach and a tablet approach for a few weeks, it is time to move forward with a hybrid laptop/iPad system.

302900_231781686889200_1784968778_nThe iPad-only based system would have been a cool rig, but it presented challenges and roadblocks at almost every turn. Abandoning that limitation opened more options than one can count. While this quickly led to choice paralysis, luckily a combination of preorder impulse purchases and prematurely announced gear finally shipping coalesced into a perfect storm of incentive to move forward.  The latest version of the THR Guitar Rig is now, the newly code-named, Felix.

IMG_2760Felix is a magic bag of techno-toys that “must never be used for anything bad.” This is debatable by those who hear me play. Nevertheless, this latest guitar-rig-in-a-bag extends the original vision and may end up doing dual duty. Thanks to the innovative features of the iConnect AUDIO 4+ interface, this design will be a full featured noise maker with and/or without a DAW. More to come on the system as it develops.
