Catalog search does not work with iOs 14
by Mrpentium on 2020/10/20 23:17
I like this app but it no longer functions in catalog search by song title or artist
Amazing

This app has changed my life! Amazing!!!
Phone Fun
by Joe Blowbye on 2020/09/26 12:00
Way cool phone ! Turned my phone into my portastudio !
Amazing
by samus04 on 2020/09/21 01:58
If you use a good pair of noise canceling head phones the sound is almost perfect. I use the beats studio 3. Some of these pedals are dead on. Even creating sounds is great. You won’t be sorry with this app. Oh and BTW free!!!
IO ability with external audio interfaces
by R/sh/dagr8$&& on 2020/07/28 23:35
Just like GarageBand, please bring in input channels functionality to your app. Unable to set my input channel 2 for Guitar in my Focusrite Audio interface. Instead it defaults to mic input causing feedback. Multi channels needed so we can pick right inputs for the app. It defaults to the mic or channel one input !
JUST WOWW!!!
by denton county drew on 2020/07/27 02:47
Get it !!!!
Can only play with selected song?
by Wasakeinto on 2020/07/18 17:50
It got stupid
Amazing
by Cre1mem1 on 2020/07/12 18:41
Was slightly disappointed with the tablature app because of all the pay walls, however this right here is amazing. So many unique effects right in my own guitar. Very well done.
Outdated
by MattErc on 2020/07/10 02:53
All it needs is just a refresh to the homepage because it obviously hasn’t been touched by devs in a year
Amazing!!!!!!
by 5KingHeff2 on 2020/07/06 18:26
Managing pedals I love this app 💯
Best sound, beats paid apps all day
by silverSurfer99! on 2020/07/05 20:40
Beats AmpliTube (paid for slash and jimi) effects and ToneBridge sounds better. It is amazing because you just choose the song and it works. I use mine on iPhone 8 and stomp I/o Amazing! Only ask would be for expression petal support for Wah and whammy or else this would be the only guitar app I would need. Integration to guitar tabs is icing on the cake!
This App is AWESOME!
by kathmandu04 on 2020/07/02 00:32
Best at this!
Crashes when I try to load any pedal
by whaskins on 2020/06/18 02:29
Unusable
workshop crashes
by Gey_Nigr on 2020/06/07 15:06
whenever I try to use the workshop, it doesn’t let me and it crashes. I even tried updating my phone. Please fix this.
best music app
by Jpettus on 2020/06/02 18:21
okay i take music apps dead serious.... and this the greatest app i have ever witnessed in my life... its the revolution... its spot on almost evey time i love it so hard i put a ring on this here app and asked it to be my bride
Drop dead
by katmusic2001 on 2020/06/01 04:36
When I downloaded this app I could hear absolutely no sound on my guitar no matter what I tried. And on top of that THERE IS NO HELP OR TUTORIAL SECTION IN THE APP ITSELF and the only way I can get any such help is to tap some random button that takes me to Ultimate Guitar’s website. People shouldn’t have to go thru this. Unless you consider this and fix it, I won’t give Tonebridge even a 2nd chance. I will even remove it from my Android phone since you seem to think it's funny that people actually struggle with your product. 😡
Get more platforms
by Sophia Var on 2020/05/27 13:06
This app is so amazing but I wish that I could download this on my laptop!!!!!!
I like this app wow

Delay
by Skyler189 on 2020/04/17 21:15
I was really surprised to hear how well the presents were... only thing is there was a ton of delay. Between when I actually played a chord and when it registered.. is there any way to fix that??
It took my kids
by she was deadly on 2020/04/17 20:12
I was just asking my kids they wanted to do you anything but listen to guitar and they kept saying no
Phenomenal App!
by TUZZ21 on 2020/04/15 05:48
This app is perfect for people like myself who want to get awesome tones but don’t have the money to buy pedals. I use this app daily and I’m extremely pleased with the selection of presets, the ability to see tabs with the tap of a button, I can save my favorites, edit presets how I like them, and even (attempt) to make my own. This app has provided hours of endless fun for me, so for anyone out there who wants to get the most out of their guitar on a budget, get an iRig 2 (or other device like it), and get Tonebridge. I can’t explain how much fun this app is! To the developer, your app is honestly the best thing I’ve gotten since my guitar itself. Without it, I probably wouldn’t play guitar nearly as much or have as much fun without these tones. Thanks so much, keep it up with the improvements!
Latency on iPhone XR with iRig HD2
by exit398 on 2020/04/13 04:13
There is a significant delay between hitting a string and hearing a sound. So much so that I’ve given up on this app and only use AmpliTube now which performs much better. Shame because the patches are awesome. UI could be better also - kind of confusing. Update: was hoping a new phone would improve the lag but it’s no better.
Been looking for this since I was a kid!!
by Sapper'94 on 2020/04/10 02:27
I picked up the electric guitar so I could learn to play all my favorites and sound like the original. I learned a lot of good riffs and intros, but was NEVER happy with how they sounded. Now that I am a middle aged father stuck at home for the current COVID pandemic, I found this little GEM! And for the first time I can play all my old favorites and they sound just right. UNBELIEVABLE!! Thank goodness I never got rid of my gear. 🎼🎧🎸
Sooo annoying!
by 1ThisAppSux1 on 2020/04/07 18:09
Every time I open garageband it completely resets everything that has tonebridge effects in the project, so it takes a while to fix each track. And sometimes, the effects that the preset have just flat out stop working correctly. Trash.
Chill out
by Vinnaaayyy on 2020/03/30 06:39
Occasionally I’ll find a good tone I can play with, but 95% of the time, it’s feedback so bad that I’m left deaf for minutes afterward. Default setting on GarageBand are easier to use.
PSA
by PapaChungo on 2020/03/09 12:12
Incase you are not aware, tone bridge isn’t in development anymore, and likely no future updates will be seen. It’s too bad since this is by far the best guitar app I’ve ever seen..
Wonderful app
by brawlmyoof12 on 2020/03/08 15:43
I love this app, I would enjoy it if we had more effect to put in the pedal
Great concept bad production
by Gamerboidanny on 2020/02/29 03:34
I got the app tried to use a sound and it just kept closing every single time I love the concept and I was really hyped when I saw I could get the tones for songs but then it just busted
Would be great if it worked via Bluetooth
by Ikmachov on 2020/02/25 23:40
My amp has a Bluetooth option so it would be awesome if this would be compatible with it so I don’t need to hook anything up to my phone. It’s a Marshall Code 50 ;)
Cool but needs a update
by AAABBBDDDEEEFFFGGG on 2020/02/21 16:14
I love this app gives my guitar great sounds but needs a update on the pedals. It has been saying “coming soon” ever since I got the app but all in all a great app.🤙🏼
Please fix!!!
by glennandlisaj on 2020/02/20 02:30
This app would be 100% perfect if it weren’t for the fact that every time I try to open workshop the app crashes!!! Please fix
Not interfacing
by BurdenGuitar on 2020/02/15 13:10
Seems like this would be such an awesome app but it’s not interfacing with my Logic X. Just freezes.
Great app
by chicko comics on 2020/02/10 03:19
Love it
Garbage app
by All Time Almond on 2020/02/03 22:16
doesn’t work at all. Update: it doesn’t work from my iPad 7th gen or iPhone 8 Plus. Connect my guitar through an iRig 2 and no sound at all. This app absolutely trash.
Great
by Amidreza on 2020/01/31 20:16
Great people , great! All u need for playing guitar with effect is here.
Greatest tool yet
by Firebones on 2020/01/30 01:33
Got this for Xmas and it is by far the best tool on my set up. A must buy for guys who are married and have kids and want to jam.
This app is awesome!
by A A ron 123 on 2020/01/03 16:03
This is the easiest way to get the sound you want. Just type in the band or song and bam!! There it is( or sometimes close). And this one was free. Big thank you to the guys at Tonebridge.
Wow
by Johhnbbbbbb on 2019/12/30 05:15
Where’s this been all my life?
Pure Awesomeness!
by matthewstellar on 2019/12/26 06:38
I just bought bias fx for $40 and then downloaded this app. I have to say I’m liking some of the models on here better! Stellar work Devs! This is one of the best free apps I’ve ever stumbled upon. Please please please fix it so inter-app audio works with Cubasis 3 Or with AUM . Thank you again for this amazing free app!
The most fantastic effects processor!
by ayman on 2019/12/19 06:49
They claim it’s no longer under development and I hope they don’t abandon it. This little app is the BEST guitar effects app ever. Not just because its free, but also because the community makes pedals for songs you want and you just plug in, tap, and go! Eric Johnson, Pink Floyd, whatever...just a search and you got your tone and with another tap, the tabs! Other apps and stomp boxes which cost hundreds can’t hold a lighter to ToneBridge. I hope they keep maintenance updates at the very least because it will be sad for the Ultimate Guitar ecosystem if it quits working.
App not working
by Neptunekiller on 2019/11/23 23:39
This app quit working right after the newest ISO update not only on my iPhone but also 2 iPads
Inspiring
by Vitalel on 2019/11/17 03:58
Inspiring in the sense that for some material you can focus on the piece rather than dialing in the sound. Presets for some pretty niche artists are solid.
Awesome app
by Finn TDW on 2019/10/27 16:04
This app is so awesome I just wish you added more preseats
Love at first strum
by bluemeanieface on 2019/10/17 19:45
100% free for use jamming and recording on your bass or guitar. Integrates fairly easily with GarageBand and most DAWs. Scroll through thousands of (successful and less successful) attempts at recreating tones by your favorite axe wielders. Users develop sounds you can play with simulated amps, cabs, microphone placement, stomp boxes, processing units, you name it. You are also able to experiment to your heart’s content and submit content for the rest of the world to enjoy. Try this before you buy expensive packages from other companies. I sound like a commercial but I really really love this product. Not often updated but who cares? This is more than enough for as long as it works on my iPhone. Thanks, devs. Rock on.
Best app ever
by pinkandblossom on 2019/10/15 02:35
Great for my son.....
Awesome app!
by sarge626 on 2019/10/10 16:10
AWESOME! So many effects! Fun to play with, and use when you find ones you like. Definitely cheaper than have so many pedals! Double thumbs up 👍🏻👍🏻. 🤘🏻😎🤘🏻
Everything's wonderful! Except...
by Preston Hirsch on 2019/10/10 03:02
Everything about this app is great besides 2 problems I seem to have on iPad. 1: when I try to publish a sound, the app instantly crashes. 2: more of a suggestion than a problem, but I feel the workspace pedals should be able to be added to a pedalboard without them being published.
Amazing
by Jk01730 on 2019/09/26 01:27
Just got my iRig and was blown away. All the songs I need are ready to go with this app and you can play along. Great job guys and thanks for such an amazing app.
Awesome
by baba razbabo on 2019/09/22 22:56
So much fun to use and the tones/fx are super solid. Great product
Nice App
by OneEyePlumberGuy on 2019/09/20 00:58
Nice little piece of technology, has good potential to become a great app. Nail those tones for us guys, Thanks.
This rocks!
by Biffbyte on 2019/09/13 04:32
Thank you for developing this. I needed it for a long time!
Awesome
by PMT2025 on 2019/09/02 01:32
The Best and Easiest to use so far.
5 stars

This is what I need for practice in the route thank you
#1 but please update Top of the Week list weekly.
by Brucelk19 on 2019/08/09 18:46
I don’t want this to be taken the wrong way, so let me start by stating, this is the best app in the entire AppStore and I don’t just mean the best guitar App. With that said please update the top of the week list it hasn’t been updated in like a year let alone a week. It is an awesome quick-find feature. The only other thing Which I’m not even sure you could do anything about is the all over the place volumes from different song choices. I mean I get that I high gain type song is louder than an acoustic song but if We have our phone’s volume set and we switch from a mellow song to EVH song without touching our ears will get blown out especially with headphones or wake the neighbors in apartment lol. Basically A steady volume across the board then adjust from pedal if they want to turn up not have to change phones volume for each song cuz it is drastically different from song to song. So there’s too many volume controls from guitar itself to the phone’s volume to the pedalboard itself to then each pedal/amp within each said pedalboard and then volume of the headphones/auxiliary in(Amp, iHome, Cab) speaker you chose to play through. If that makes any sense. That’s all. Otherwise be 5stars for me instead of 4. But no other guitar app even gets a 4 from me so you guys got it right and I appreciate this app very much and it has been so helpful and allowed me to experiment with thousands of dollars in sounds with my iPhone and a $13 Irig n some headphones which is all that is required. Thanks again
WOW!! Wonderful app.
by FinnCrimson on 2019/07/18 22:10
Tried a lot of these apps lately. This is by far the best one yet. The sounds are phenomenal as is, but the fact you can edit the sounds to your personal taste makes this great app even greater. Can’t believe this app is free as it sounds so much better than a lot of the paid ones. Again, wow!! Thanks to the developers for making this. You rock. And now, thanks to this app, so do I.
The app seems good but..
by 1MonkeyDFree on 2019/07/06 20:05
Ok so I don’t know if I’m missing something here but I just got the app. And I just can’t find a way to play on a acoustic guitar only? But I would definitely recommend this app.
Needs more artists and more songs
by flashwc on 2019/07/04 12:05
Theres nothing wrong with this app it’s really amazing the only problem is that it doesn’t have a lot of newer artist or their song effects and every time I click on the preview sounds it say coming soon for almost everything please fix update this this is such a great app
So useful omg
by A metal player on 2019/06/25 21:47
I use it with the Irig 2 and wow not only do I not disturb the neighbors because of the headphone jack but the effects can come from almost any song you want to cover (never write reviews but this is just really good so here I am)
Bottom line.
by JAFO_1 on 2019/06/23 05:44
Love it.
Needs Fixing
by Gomez_A on 2019/05/23 22:34
I'm trying to use this app on the 2019 iPad Pro but keeps making clicking sound when I use the USB C adapter to headphone jack. I used this app on my iPhones and worked great. Please, please, PLEASE update app to be compatible with the 2019 iPad pro. It's just disappointing.
Best app ever
by ATFilmsofficial on 2019/05/23 22:01
Do I really need to go in depth about how awesome this app is. Download it! No in app purchase required. If your gonna use this app, get an Irig 2.
Best app on this planet!
by Bioartologist on 2019/05/11 03:29
The sounds you get from this app are so beautiful! No buzz on recordings and you can bring it Into Logic Pro through a Shure MVI and add more effects and master, I love this App!
Hear me out
by james p ridden on 2019/04/26 20:10
For all you experienced guitar players seeing those ukulele people: It’s just an app. People are expressing themselves. Even if they aren’t great they at least are putting themselves out there. The tones are decent. There’s a smaller selection than I like but it’s understandable because perfect tones are hard to make. The app even sends you a reminder if you forget to play guitar for a couple days. 9.8/10
Needs support for Apogee one
by Troy759 on 2019/04/26 01:31
Very cool app just wish it worked with my apogee one device
One of the Best Sound Engines - AmpKit+
by Gern Blasnton on 2019/04/25 03:42
I own the original version of this by Agile Partners, AmpKit+. It was not cheap when purchased with all the add-ons. I still use it to this day but it has been abandoned by Agile for years. A version in AUv3 would be great and this is almost it except for the poor local saving and recalling of your own setups. Add local set up search and save please. I am just grateful someone is keeping this app alive, it really is among the absolute best. And seriously, at this price it’s a “steal.” PS I suppose adding local back up of your own presets would impinge upon your on-line interactivity. But it sure would be appreciated.
Cool app, garbage presets, bad purchase
by Musical Dinosaur on 2019/04/23 06:05
Unless you want to waste all your practice time mucking through song after song that has 2 chords and sounds nothing like what you want to play. Stay way away. Select a Neil Young Song, you get the Beatles. Select 10 other songs and they are the same 3 chords with the same setting. Yes, the top 20 guitar songs are fairly good, some great. But 90% of the sample amp patches are garbage chords with nothing even remotely close to original sound. Unless you just want to create your own, which it does well, or want a very limited number of accurate patches, pass this by. Developers- go through the stacks of uploaded garbage and delete the crap. Check an upload before posting, or add a report garbage option that is actually monitored, and I’ll gladly give this app the 5 stars it probably deserves. But right now it’s just a frustrating time drain. You can only play Smoke on the Water or Sweet Child of Mine so many times. Total crapshoot beyond that. Even trying to listen to the original song data base is messed up. Neil Young gave me CCR. Clapton gave me Metallica. Lot of holes to ‘patch’. You got my money on a promise that wasn’t real. I’ll reload it whenever I see an update, but as of now, I’ll make space for BiasFX for a test.
Excellent app
by JB in Fla on 2019/04/22 22:32
I got an iRig HD and that is to tight integration with apple music can play along to all my favorite songs through the app. Also has links to open the tab. Anyhow good app not sure how it's free but thank you for making it!
Best guitar app!
by ggbmo on 2019/04/13 05:02
This is by far the most useful, easy to use guitar app I’ve seen. It’s motivating to play songs you’re learning in their original tones. Thanks Ultimate Guitar for making such an awesome app and free of charge!
Great
by aye_evi on 2019/04/09 05:28
I dont need to buy a new amp anymore 😂 this app IS GREAT🤘🏻
Ehh
by Bdawg6000 on 2019/04/03 01:10
I like the idea of the app a lot. I don’t know if it’s my irig or not but any distortion has this high pitch squeal as soon as I turn the pedal on. I turn to amp effect down a tad and it goes away until I mute again. I also only get close to the sound I like. I play a lot of ffdp and disturbed so I like to experiment with he app instead of buying a 400 dollar pre amp. Great idea but I just can’t get it to work properly.
Really, Outrageously Good!
by Jomo53 on 2019/03/27 21:39
I have several amp apps, I find myself using Tonebridge more than the others combined. I am particularly enamored with the “ Colonel Plexi 50 “ amp which is outstanding. The pedal selection, cabinet selections and mic selections are truly top notch. I would pay for add- ons, I would pay for Tonebridge.
good queen sound
by voodou66 on 2019/03/24 03:46
a good queen song with my squier working with t ampkit app well. I do have to say sometimes to much feedback but i like a raw sound.
Feedback
by FRANKFRETZEL on 2019/03/23 04:44
Literally every preset I get that has even a little bit of gain just feedbacks like crazy and I don’t know why I have multiple guitars and they all do the same thing
🤟🏼
by H E R M A R on 2019/03/21 17:17
La mejor aplicación. A los desarrolladores; nunca la abandones por favor!!
Can almost replace AmpliTube.
by VicWiley on 2019/03/10 17:42
I love the tones I get with this. Unfortunately, it isn’t functional with many midi controllers. Can only switch between pedals with one button. Also, isn’t compatible with a volume pedal. Would be 5 stars if I could assign more controls. Excellent app otherwise.
Please help me
by Mpayne_989 on 2019/03/03 21:41
It keeps telling me that it was unable to play the song and to try and turn on the explicit content in my phones restrictions settings. It also says to make sure that the region of my Apple ID matches the region of my phone. I turned on explicit content and it still doesn’t work. Please help.
Solid Presets
by Dylon Fehrs on 2019/02/19 00:27
This app is awesome. It’s got almost every preset you could want or need and the quality is solid.
On the verge of greatness!
by Writing comment on 2019/02/11 00:04
This is an awesome app but I find it silly you can’t use your own pedals in a pedal board without publishing them. Not only that but I want to be able to stack pedals so I can have a tone but then add reverb or distortion to the same tone without changing it. It seems like it should be possible. So to summarize I would give 5 stars if these were included. -Adding custom pedals to your pedal board -Stacking Pedals or being able to activate the base pedals also.
Odd misfires
by Learnin' on 2019/02/10 15:33
I couldn’t find a way to ask a question of the developer, so it goes in my review. Generally, I’ve liked this app; getting at least a reasonable approximation of the tone for a song with a single selection saves lots of fiddling with pedal and amp settings for actual practice time. BUT, I’ve had a couple of instances where I want to play along with the song, which I have in my iTunes library, and the app says it’s not there. Also, lately the guitar sounds much sharper and harsher through the app than it used to; maybe my imagination, but thought I’d mention it. At the start, there were times where I might have considered using Tonebridge to play “for real”, but lately the output hasn’t sounded as full as it used to. At least, to me.
Really Cool!

Help

My acoustic doesn’t have one of those plug in thingies. Can I still tone my guitar to match the song or Do i have to have a plug in thingie. PS. I’m a beginner still getting the hang of things
Awesome
by frofrobro7 on 2019/01/07 17:14
Awesome app ultimate guitar is amazing it sounds just like all my favorite songs it works perfectly with Irig 2 it’s just a great app
Incredible! A++
by M@LLEN on 2019/01/01 17:09
The days of spending countless hours trying to recreate your favorite guitar players tones are over! Pick your favorite artist(s) or favorite song(s), plug in your axe and turn on the pedal! •SIMPLICITY• You can adjust the settings on the boxes too if you want, but 99% of the time, it is the exact tone from the original song. I’ve been dying for something like this! It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or an expert guitar player, this is a MUST HAVE application! 🎸 Keep Rockin’
Please fix it with an update.
by Jose Raruto on 2018/12/31 05:23
First, I’ve been using this app for a long time now and i can say that is one of the greatest app that’s free on this category. I really enjoy using my guitar with this app and my Irig2 so I can fully concentrate on what I’m playing, but lately I’ve been having issues with the app. After the latest update was released, the app started crashing every time I tried to open it, yet before I updated the app it was working completely fine. I just want to ask the developers if they could release a new update soon to fix this problem, i really like this app, but unfortunately I haven’t been able to use it for than a month now because of the app crashes. I hope they do something about it soon because this app is great, will rate higher when a solution happens.
Cool app

Nice & easy way to sound like a guitar hero!
Love This App
by Jval68 on 2018/12/22 20:49
Way better than some other apps I’ve wasted money on. I am loving this app!!!
Good app
by Walker W. on 2018/12/21 21:19
The interface was great the customizability and options were endless, overall great experience.
Gain pulsates
by jjewgg on 2018/12/15 01:01
It’s a cool product except when trying to use on a gig the volume pulsates up and down without any control making it unusable. I’ve tried every gain setting and amp vol setting but still get it. Tried to contact the company for ideas and could never figure out how to reach them. So cool but currently unused.

In would give five stars but you can’t take pedals you’ve made in the workshop and add them to a pedalboard
Hear it all
by Rockingbyrd on 2018/12/11 05:55
Great app for people who love music.play on. Thank you tonebridge.
Absolutely Perfect!
by Hdcycle on 2018/11/29 05:39
Wow, I can not believe all the time I have wasted fooling around with “that other app” when Tonebridge was available. Plug and play sound at my fingertips makes it so much more fun to learn songs when the sound is right. Works great with my IRig2 and my IPad. Tone bridge and Ultimate Guitar is the best combo ever! Thanks guys!
Amazing!! How is this fee?
by Timbo6427 on 2018/11/18 21:45
The authenticity of these tones are amazing. The first time I tried it I ended up playing around with it for around three hours. The endless library of tones is astonishing and most of them are dead on the original tone. I’ve tried to reproduce many of these tones with multi effects pedal setting but couldn’t get anywhere near as accurate as this app. The only thing I can’t figure out is how they can make it free. Unless maybe they’re using this app to re-promote these classic songs, because it does just that.
Winning App
by Will be crazy on 2018/02/23 13:03
This is hands down one of the best apps for guitarist, especially for beginners. There’s people out there who have taken the time to create the tones of some of your favorite artists to perfection. This helps tremendously when learning new styles and covers. Being able to play a song in its original tone has helped me learn songs without even looking for a tab. It makes that much of a difference. I want to recommend to people who have had latency issues with Bluetooth on ios to invest in the camera connection kit and an audio interface. I use my audio interface with my ipad or iphone using this kit. Specifically a Scarlett 2i4 version 2. I have had zero issues connecting and have only had a few annoying app crashes which I’m sure will only get better with time. Using an interface allows me to play through my monitors and a next to nothing latency. The most frustrating thing in the world in music is latency and timing, this fixed that issue for me. Also, the ability to use this app in garage band is incredibly useful. I use a clean amp setting in garage band and use Tonebridge to cover the rest. It sounds very impressive. To call this app useful and fun would be an understatement. AAA App for Guitarists, definitely a must have in your app collection. Very easy to use, I absolutely love it. 🙌
Phenomenal App!
by TUZZ21 on 2020/04/15 05:48
This app is perfect for people like myself who want to get awesome tones but don’t have the money to buy pedals. I use this app daily and I’m extremely pleased with the selection of presets, the ability to see tabs with the tap of a button, I can save my favorites, edit presets how I like them, and even (attempt) to make my own. This app has provided hours of endless fun for me, so for anyone out there who wants to get the most out of their guitar on a budget, get an iRig 2 (or other device like it), and get Tonebridge. I can’t explain how much fun this app is! To the developer, your app is honestly the best thing I’ve gotten since my guitar itself. Without it, I probably wouldn’t play guitar nearly as much or have as much fun without these tones. Thanks so much, keep it up with the improvements!
Love at first strum
by bluemeanieface on 2019/10/17 19:45
100% free for use jamming and recording on your bass or guitar. Integrates fairly easily with GarageBand and most DAWs. Scroll through thousands of (successful and less successful) attempts at recreating tones by your favorite axe wielders. Users develop sounds you can play with simulated amps, cabs, microphone placement, stomp boxes, processing units, you name it. You are also able to experiment to your heart’s content and submit content for the rest of the world to enjoy. Try this before you buy expensive packages from other companies. I sound like a commercial but I really really love this product. Not often updated but who cares? This is more than enough for as long as it works on my iPhone. Thanks, devs. Rock on.
Major issues with Irig2 on iPhone
by FA1969 on 2018/05/11 01:52
I downloaded this app. I played quite a number of presets and was astonished by the authenticity of the guitar tones of my favorite artists. I own an Irig2. It works well with other apps such as Amplitude or GarageBand. However, this app has an issue I can’t figure out with Irig2. If I use the Amp output in Irig2 then the processed / effect sound of the guitar is not transmitted, rather only the dry signal. I have to use the headphone output of my Irig2 to get the wet signal and that sounded horrible unless I used the noise gate effect but by doing that my guitar tune lost all sensitivity and it is muzzled. I tired playing with volume and effect levels. No luck. I wish the developers tested and worked out this “compatibility” issue with Irig2. It is a very common and versatile connector due to its compact size. I can’t afford to buy another connector due to cost and size of other makes/models. That would make this app a dream come true.
How Dare You, Developers
by aarong914 on 2018/05/28 19:23
Why on earth would you guys make a totally free app that aids me on my search to find the tones I’ve been looking for, for so long?! And on top of that, you allow me to not only suggest songs for presets, but make my own with a wide selection of amps, cabs, pedals, and microphones! I’m a college student with homework, ya know!! All joking aside, I just absolutely LOVE Tonebridge, and am legitimately trying hard to find anything wrong with it. I suppose that it’s on a device with a touch screen, which might make it harder to control in a live setting? But is that a dealbreaker? Definitely not! You better not be kidding when how you say it’s free, and are determined to keep it that way. I love GarageBand’s guitar features, yet I will admit that I consider this a step up in virtual tone modeling. As a guitar player who doesn’t own any effects pedals (sue me), this app is one of my favorite toys, and love thinking about how it could be used live. Keep doing what you’re doing developers, and please remember all this support you have from the consumers! I send you all virtual hugs.
Cool app, garbage presets, bad purchase
by Musical Dinosaur on 2019/04/23 06:05
Unless you want to waste all your practice time mucking through song after song that has 2 chords and sounds nothing like what you want to play. Stay way away. Select a Neil Young Song, you get the Beatles. Select 10 other songs and they are the same 3 chords with the same setting. Yes, the top 20 guitar songs are fairly good, some great. But 90% of the sample amp patches are garbage chords with nothing even remotely close to original sound. Unless you just want to create your own, which it does well, or want a very limited number of accurate patches, pass this by. Developers- go through the stacks of uploaded garbage and delete the crap. Check an upload before posting, or add a report garbage option that is actually monitored, and I’ll gladly give this app the 5 stars it probably deserves. But right now it’s just a frustrating time drain. You can only play Smoke on the Water or Sweet Child of Mine so many times. Total crapshoot beyond that. Even trying to listen to the original song data base is messed up. Neil Young gave me CCR. Clapton gave me Metallica. Lot of holes to ‘patch’. You got my money on a promise that wasn’t real. I’ll reload it whenever I see an update, but as of now, I’ll make space for BiasFX for a test.
The most fantastic effects processor!
by ayman on 2019/12/19 06:49
They claim it’s no longer under development and I hope they don’t abandon it. This little app is the BEST guitar effects app ever. Not just because its free, but also because the community makes pedals for songs you want and you just plug in, tap, and go! Eric Johnson, Pink Floyd, whatever...just a search and you got your tone and with another tap, the tabs! Other apps and stomp boxes which cost hundreds can’t hold a lighter to ToneBridge. I hope they keep maintenance updates at the very least because it will be sad for the Ultimate Guitar ecosystem if it quits working.
Please fix it with an update.
by Jose Raruto on 2018/12/31 05:23
First, I’ve been using this app for a long time now and i can say that is one of the greatest app that’s free on this category. I really enjoy using my guitar with this app and my Irig2 so I can fully concentrate on what I’m playing, but lately I’ve been having issues with the app. After the latest update was released, the app started crashing every time I tried to open it, yet before I updated the app it was working completely fine.

Odd misfires
by Learnin' on 2019/02/10 15:33
I couldn’t find a way to ask a question of the developer, so it goes in my review. Generally, I’ve liked this app; getting at least a reasonable approximation of the tone for a song with a single selection saves lots of fiddling with pedal and amp settings for actual practice time. BUT, I’ve had a couple of instances where I want to play along with the song, which I have in my iTunes library, and the app says it’s not there. Also, lately the guitar sounds much sharper and harsher through the app than it used to; maybe my imagination, but thought I’d mention it. At the start, there were times where I might have considered using Tonebridge to play “for real”, but lately the output hasn’t sounded as full as it used to. At least, to me.
Omg this app just added the ability to work inside of GarageBand
by Thirdnail on 2017/11/04 01:59
Oh my... I’m just blown away by this app, I had used it for just jamming, but now AUI ability...I am just ...just ....wow, not enough words to say what an amazing sound this has...I bought ToneStack, Bias, AmpliTubes’ “Slash Version” (Marshall Modeled) and this blows them ALL out of the water, the noise reduction is just amazing... the filters and Algorithms are FLAGSHIP, and should be what these other guys STRIVE to emulate. ***However I do wish that they had MORE options to control every effect, (or just develop an app that would allow for more control, and rack graphics and allow for amp set up, without losing this sound) I will tell everyone who has NOT paid for Any of these other amp and effect emulators...like AmpliTube, Bias, ToneStack do not buy if you want this sound... I have bought them all, and their sound it tinny, very thin and brittle. Thank you Devs, you guys rock, and you should have a donate button. ~Third Nail
Very cool
by TheRealDutchee on 2018/02/10 13:44
Very useful and good sounding app. I like to discover in Tonewizard how the sounds are actually being made with Ampkit. I always liked that app and think it sounds great. Nice to see and hear how Tonebrdige uses the Ampkit engine. I signed up for the Tabs app too since these guys are doing a great job. Only wish that when i click the guitar tabs button it would also open the selected song in Tabs. It just takes me to the home screen where i need to manually search for the tabs myself... not sure if this was intended this way or just a bug.
Amazing!! How is this fee?

Accessibility.
by aggg1234 on 2018/10/13 23:17
When I was a lad I had a Rhodes V guitar and two brutal pedals. I tried to jam to the sounds of my idols like Laiho and Eschbach. It took every penny I had in high school to do so. Some of us have been through this. Now, with this app the chances of supporting some musically inclined kid is that much easier. We live in a world where many things are so accessible. But where music prevails, I am at a loss. I hope this app can inspire a becoming artist that plays an INSTRUMENT. Like when music was good. Thanks guys. Not sure what your philosophy is but this would be mine. -Alec Garcia.
Out of the park on the last update! Tweakable amp, effect and mic settings!
by Dark Horse (NB) on 2018/02/10 20:55
This last update finally took the app to a different level with the ability to tweak amps, effects and mic settings. The tones sound spot on and now with a ton of songs to choose from, there is something for everybody. The Mesa Mklll is my favorite along with the auto wah. What a phenomenal way to practice and record now with IAA integration. My only suggestion is to give us the ability to mix and match amp, effects etc. Otherwise this is top notch!
Best Guitar App Ever
by Mav777627 on 2018/04/20 08:52
This is one of the greatest apps I have ever come across. I have been trying to figure out how to get the tone from the Top Gun Anthem for the longest time, and the preset I found on here is absolutely killer. So many other awesome presets that are pretty spot on. Really excellent easy to use interface as well. Can’t say enough good things about this app. Must have for all guitarists, especially for those who can’t afford the crazy nice gear, this app will make you sound so much better.
Incredible! A++
by M@LLEN on 2019/01/01 17:09
The days of spending countless hours trying to recreate your favorite guitar players tones are over! Pick your favorite artist(s) or favorite song(s), plug in your axe and turn on the pedal! •SIMPLICITY• You can adjust the settings on the boxes too if you want, but 99% of the time, it is the exact tone from the original song. I’ve been dying for something like this! It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or an expert guitar player, this is a MUST HAVE application! 🎸 Keep Rockin’
Just incredible!!! So powerful!
by samoyedprincess on 2018/09/29 07:25
I have been using this for over two years! I can honestly say this is my favorite app! If there was only one way to improve this out further it would be to have the option to create my own presets and put them on the app for everybody else to enjoy! It’s still missing some key classic rock songs that I really would love to have. Not nearly enough Aerosmith Styx or Boston.
IAA and Audiobus a no go!
by NeedEQforVideos on 2018/05/20 15:07
Great sounding App! Now, if it would just work with Any of my DAWS! I own 7 different ones and so far it won’t work with any of them. In Cubasis the Demo Samples actually Record but me Playing into it does not? I can see no-one addressing this matter or even concerned on the Internet. It sounds Great, but I want to Record with it. Please Fix, or tell what I’m doing wrong. Also does not work with Audiobus. It needs to be an Instrument, not an Effect, I think that might have something to do with it. It shows up but does not connect. I’ve been trying for days now.
Been looking for this since I was a kid!!
by Sapper'94 on 2020/04/10 02:27
I picked up the electric guitar so I could learn to play all my favorites and sound like the original. I learned a lot of good riffs and intros, but was NEVER happy with how they sounded. Now that I am a middle aged father stuck at home for the current COVID pandemic, I found this little GEM! And for the first time I can play all my old favorites and they sound just right. UNBELIEVABLE!! Thank goodness I never got rid of my gear. 🎼🎧🎸
Great app, more customization would be great
by pweisenburger on 2017/09/17 18:34
I love this app. Its tones blow all the other modeling softwares (that cos money) out of the water. However, it would be nice to be able to customize the pedal and eq options on the effects. I find myself finding a song preset that is just a tad too trebly or just a bit too much chorus, and the ability to change that would be great. It doesn't have to be right up front, but an option in the corner somewhere would be perfect.
WOW!! Wonderful app.
by FinnCrimson on 2019/07/18 22:10
Tried a lot of these apps lately. This is by far the best one yet. The sounds are phenomenal as is, but the fact you can edit the sounds to your personal taste makes this great app even greater. Can’t believe this app is free as it sounds so much better than a lot of the paid ones. Again, wow!! Thanks to the developers for making this. You rock. And now, thanks to this app, so do I.
It just gets better and better
by Savvy Seitz on 2018/06/26 18:38
This may be literally the only app on my phone (aside from default apps and Instagram) which has no in-app purchases. You get everything you see advertised for it, and it's so much fun to be able to create your own pedal boards and even make your own pedals. It's buggy sometimes, tbh, but who cares.
On the verge of greatness!
by Writing comment on 2019/02/11 00:04
This is an awesome app but I find it silly you can’t use your own pedals in a pedal board without publishing them. Not only that but I want to be able to stack pedals so I can have a tone but then add reverb or distortion to the same tone without changing it. It seems like it should be possible. So to summarize I would give 5 stars if these were included. -Adding custom pedals to your pedal board -Stacking Pedals or being able to activate the base pedals also.
Best sound, beats paid apps all day
by silverSurfer99! on 2020/07/05 20:40
Beats AmpliTube (paid for slash and jimi) effects and ToneBridge sounds better. It is amazing because you just choose the song and it works. I use mine on iPhone 8 and stomp I/o Amazing! Only ask would be for expression petal support for Wah and whammy or else this would be the only guitar app I would need. Integration to guitar tabs is icing on the cake!
Good update but restrictive
by Biblo swaggins on 2018/06/13 14:38
I love the new workshop option, but I think it’s a crying shame that it’s being made just for already existing songs. You can’t just give us this creative power and say we’re only allowed to publish it for already existing songs. There should be an option to view community made pedals or something similar, to see what people can come up with.
Love this app. 10/10 but one suggestion
by Bluezoid on 2018/03/25 18:57
I would recommend every guitarist get this app it’s awesome. Nothing wrong with it but maybe try and add Bluetooth support from iPhone to iRig/similar device. Just a thought due to new iPhones lacking the standard AUX port bar having one of those AUX to Lightning adapters. Great app though like I said. Keep up the good work
5 stars
by Nate14tnnndunlap on 2017/08/21 16:02
Ok so I have been using this app for awhile and I got to say this app is awesome!! What this app is, is u can play your favorite songs on the guitar and u can use the same amps the guitarist used for the song. Now there are ones that work great but some does not, which really need to be worked on. Overall I give this app 5 stars!!!

by BlackSabateur on 2018/06/28 23:13
I can’t believe how great this app is! Devs must have took a lot of time to come up with it...it really shows. And they’re constantly adding new tones. I placed a request for “Princess of the Night” by Saxon, since it didn’t exist. It was added 2 days later and I received a notification/email! Love this app. Great job, devs!
It was great until the last big update
by JakeB_211 on 2017/12/20 21:38
I’ve been using Tonebridge ever since it came out. I fell in love with it, using it for both my bass and electric guitar. Ever since the last major update, all the presets have LOTS of bass added to them. It’s almost impossible to play my electric guitar with it anymore because of this issue. I hope it gets fixed soon, because I would be glad to use this properly once more.
Essential!
by maxblack113 on 2018/02/10 15:38
This app is simply the greatest tool available for guitar players. It is so much fun to practice and play your favorite songs with the exact tone of the artist. Aside from having fun, you can also record in GarageBand using this app is a plug-in. That feature alone takes this app from “fun” to “essential”.
Absolutely Perfect!
by Hdcycle on 2018/11/29 05:39
Wow, I can not believe all the time I have wasted fooling around with “that other app” when Tonebridge was available. Plug and play sound at my fingertips makes it so much more fun to learn songs when the sound is right. Works great with my IRig2 and my IPad. Tone bridge and Ultimate Guitar is the best combo ever! Thanks guys!
Pure Enjoyment
by Jipper on 2018/07/23 12:31
The most fun I have had with any app of any kind—even more than any game. Connected my guitar with my iRig 2 and then went down a rabbit hole of getting my guitar to sound exactly like every iconic song I could think of. Hours went by like minutes. Great job developers!
Great app but missing a key feature
by Kaleebmustach on 2017/11/01 11:22
I love this app a lot but it’s missing the one and only feature I want. Bluetooth compatibility. I’ve always wanted to just play through my phone connected to a loud speaker and just play. The phone is way to quiet in many situations and it’s just plain not loud. Please add a Bluetooth option.
More NOFX/Punk Bass Tones
by music guy 888 on 2017/12/23 04:51
I’m going to start by saying I LOVE this app and get excited anytime there is a new update! It’s always fun to see what the Dev’s have added in or tweaked. Now my only gripe is there aren’t too many punk bass tones. Sure there are some but I think there could be more. Other than that I love it! Thanks guys and girls!
Really, Outrageously Good!
by Jomo53 on 2019/03/27 21:39
I have several amp apps, I find myself using Tonebridge more than the others combined. I am particularly enamored with the “ Colonel Plexi 50 “ amp which is outstanding. The pedal selection, cabinet selections and mic selections are truly top notch. I would pay for add- ons, I would pay for Tonebridge.
One of the Best Sound Engines - AmpKit+
by Gern Blasnton on 2019/04/25 03:42
I own the original version of this by Agile Partners, AmpKit+. It was not cheap when purchased with all the add-ons. I still use it to this day but it has been abandoned by Agile for years. A version in AUv3 would be great and this is almost it except for the poor local saving and recalling of your own setups. Add local set up search and save please. I am just grateful someone is keeping this app alive, it really is among the absolute best. And seriously, at this price it’s a “steal.” PS I suppose adding local back up of your own presets would impinge upon your on-line interactivity. But it sure would be appreciated.
Needs more artists and more songs
by flashwc on 2019/07/04 12:05
Theres nothing wrong with this app it’s really amazing the only problem is that it doesn’t have a lot of newer artist or their song effects and every time I click on the preview sounds it say coming soon for almost everything please fix update this this is such a great app
So useful omg
by A metal player on 2019/06/25 21:47
I use it with the Irig 2 and wow not only do I not disturb the neighbors because of the headphone jack but the effects can come from almost any song you want to cover (never write reviews but this is just really good so here I am)
Everything's wonderful! Except...
by Preston Hirsch on 2019/10/10 03:02
Everything about this app is great besides 2 problems I seem to have on iPad. 1: when I try to publish a sound, the app instantly crashes. 2: more of a suggestion than a problem, but I feel the workspace pedals should be able to be added to a pedalboard without them being published.
Can almost replace AmpliTube.
by VicWiley on 2019/03/10 17:42
I love the tones I get with this. Unfortunately, it isn’t functional with many midi controllers. Can only switch between pedals with one button. Also, isn’t compatible with a volume pedal. Would be 5 stars if I could assign more controls. Excellent app otherwise.
This Is The One
by Nkdeddyfastfrets on 2018/03/25 14:19
These guys really have got their spit together and they are on a roll. Mind blowing. Together with the tabs app and now your sound library this just knocks it out of the park. Great work. Actually supreme ultimate can’t touch this work. Wow I’m totally blown away by this company. YOU DUDES ROCK!
Must have!!!
by Savvy Jay on 2017/08/29 20:53
I LOVE THIS APP!!!!! Tons of amazing presets available at my fingertips. It's really nice if you want to take a break and jam on some fun presets or if you're trying to find a sound... it's already there so you don't lose creativity in the process. It's so much fun! A+
Excellent app
by JB in Fla on 2019/04/22 22:32
I got an iRig HD and that is to tight integration with apple music can play along to all my favorite songs through the app. Also has links to open the tab. Anyhow good app not sure how it's free but thank you for making it!
Strong feedback
by Bwarmuth on 2017/08/24 21:31
This app is fantastic for people looking to get great tones from some of their favorite songs. However I've noticed (and it may just be an issue on my end) that I get really strong feedback when using some of the tones. Otherwise fantastic app
Ehh
by Bdawg6000 on 2019/04/03 01:10
I like the idea of the app a lot. I don’t know if it’s my irig or not but any distortion has this high pitch squeal as soon as I turn the pedal on. I turn to amp effect down a tad and it goes away until I mute again. I also only get close to the sound I like. I play a lot of ffdp and disturbed so I like to experiment with he app instead of buying a 400 dollar pre amp. Great idea but I just can’t get it to work properly.
Great, but disappointing
by BigDaddy1451 on 2018/08/28 03:59
I love this app so much, but it’s preset request page is dead. There aren’t any new requests being made. The last time a pedal requested was made on the page, was 3 weeks ago, and before that, months. It’s so annoying that I can’t get my Bulls on Parade wah pedal, or my Lateralus delay intro pedal :(
Great but...
by Mr Collin Reed on 2018/01/16 04:52
App is great to get cool tones, but in order to sound like it's preview you have to give it volume and effect boost and I have a horrible headache from the feedback, please fix because the tone does not sound like the preview, thanks.
Amazing
by Cre1mem1 on 2020/07/12 18:41
Was slightly disappointed with the tablature app because of all the pay walls, however this right here is amazing. So many unique effects right in my own guitar. Very well done.

Catalog search does not work with iOs 14
by Mrpentium on 2020/10/20 23:17
I like this app but it no longer functions in catalog search by song title or artist
Amazing

This app has changed my life! Amazing!!!
Phone Fun
by Joe Blowbye on 2020/09/26 12:00
Way cool phone ! Turned my phone into my portastudio !
Amazing
by samus04 on 2020/09/21 01:58
If you use a good pair of noise canceling head phones the sound is almost perfect. I use the beats studio 3. Some of these pedals are dead on. Even creating sounds is great. You won’t be sorry with this app. Oh and BTW free!!!
IO ability with external audio interfaces
by R/sh/dagr8$&& on 2020/07/28 23:35
Just like GarageBand, please bring in input channels functionality to your app. Unable to set my input channel 2 for Guitar in my Focusrite Audio interface. Instead it defaults to mic input causing feedback. Multi channels needed so we can pick right inputs for the app. It defaults to the mic or channel one input !
JUST WOWW!!!
by denton county drew on 2020/07/27 02:47
Get it !!!!
Can only play with selected song?
by Wasakeinto on 2020/07/18 17:50
It got stupid
Amazing
by Cre1mem1 on 2020/07/12 18:41
Was slightly disappointed with the tablature app because of all the pay walls, however this right here is amazing. So many unique effects right in my own guitar. Very well done.
Outdated
by MattErc on 2020/07/10 02:53
All it needs is just a refresh to the homepage because it obviously hasn’t been touched by devs in a year
Amazing!!!!!!
by 5KingHeff2 on 2020/07/06 18:26
Managing pedals I love this app 💯
Best sound, beats paid apps all day
by silverSurfer99! on 2020/07/05 20:40
Beats AmpliTube (paid for slash and jimi) effects and ToneBridge sounds better. It is amazing because you just choose the song and it works. I use mine on iPhone 8 and stomp I/o Amazing! Only ask would be for expression petal support for Wah and whammy or else this would be the only guitar app I would need. Integration to guitar tabs is icing on the cake!
This App is AWESOME!
by kathmandu04 on 2020/07/02 00:32
Best at this!
Crashes when I try to load any pedal
by whaskins on 2020/06/18 02:29
Unusable
workshop crashes
by Gey_Nigr on 2020/06/07 15:06
whenever I try to use the workshop, it doesn’t let me and it crashes. I even tried updating my phone. Please fix this.
best music app
by Jpettus on 2020/06/02 18:21
okay i take music apps dead serious.... and this the greatest app i have ever witnessed in my life... its the revolution... its spot on almost evey time i love it so hard i put a ring on this here app and asked it to be my bride
Drop dead
by katmusic2001 on 2020/06/01 04:36
When I downloaded this app I could hear absolutely no sound on my guitar no matter what I tried. And on top of that THERE IS NO HELP OR TUTORIAL SECTION IN THE APP ITSELF and the only way I can get any such help is to tap some random button that takes me to Ultimate Guitar’s website. People shouldn’t have to go thru this. Unless you consider this and fix it, I won’t give Tonebridge even a 2nd chance. I will even remove it from my Android phone since you seem to think it's funny that people actually struggle with your product. 😡
Get more platforms
by Sophia Var on 2020/05/27 13:06
This app is so amazing but I wish that I could download this on my laptop!!!!!!
I like this app wow

Delay
by Skyler189 on 2020/04/17 21:15
I was really surprised to hear how well the presents were... only thing is there was a ton of delay. Between when I actually played a chord and when it registered.. is there any way to fix that??
It took my kids
by she was deadly on 2020/04/17 20:12
I was just asking my kids they wanted to do you anything but listen to guitar and they kept saying no
Phenomenal App!
by TUZZ21 on 2020/04/15 05:48
This app is perfect for people like myself who want to get awesome tones but don’t have the money to buy pedals. I use this app daily and I’m extremely pleased with the selection of presets, the ability to see tabs with the tap of a button, I can save my favorites, edit presets how I like them, and even (attempt) to make my own. This app has provided hours of endless fun for me, so for anyone out there who wants to get the most out of their guitar on a budget, get an iRig 2 (or other device like it), and get Tonebridge. I can’t explain how much fun this app is! To the developer, your app is honestly the best thing I’ve gotten since my guitar itself. Without it, I probably wouldn’t play guitar nearly as much or have as much fun without these tones. Thanks so much, keep it up with the improvements!
Latency on iPhone XR with iRig HD2
by exit398 on 2020/04/13 04:13
There is a significant delay between hitting a string and hearing a sound. So much so that I’ve given up on this app and only use AmpliTube now which performs much better. Shame because the patches are awesome. UI could be better also - kind of confusing. Update: was hoping a new phone would improve the lag but it’s no better.
Been looking for this since I was a kid!!
by Sapper'94 on 2020/04/10 02:27
I picked up the electric guitar so I could learn to play all my favorites and sound like the original. I learned a lot of good riffs and intros, but was NEVER happy with how they sounded. Now that I am a middle aged father stuck at home for the current COVID pandemic, I found this little GEM! And for the first time I can play all my old favorites and they sound just right. UNBELIEVABLE!! Thank goodness I never got rid of my gear. 🎼🎧🎸
Sooo annoying!
by 1ThisAppSux1 on 2020/04/07 18:09
Every time I open garageband it completely resets everything that has tonebridge effects in the project, so it takes a while to fix each track. And sometimes, the effects that the preset have just flat out stop working correctly. Trash.
Chill out
by Vinnaaayyy on 2020/03/30 06:39
Occasionally I’ll find a good tone I can play with, but 95% of the time, it’s feedback so bad that I’m left deaf for minutes afterward. Default setting on GarageBand are easier to use.
PSA
by PapaChungo on 2020/03/09 12:12
Incase you are not aware, tone bridge isn’t in development anymore, and likely no future updates will be seen. It’s too bad since this is by far the best guitar app I’ve ever seen..
Wonderful app
by brawlmyoof12 on 2020/03/08 15:43
I love this app, I would enjoy it if we had more effect to put in the pedal
Great concept bad production
by Gamerboidanny on 2020/02/29 03:34
I got the app tried to use a sound and it just kept closing every single time I love the concept and I was really hyped when I saw I could get the tones for songs but then it just busted
Would be great if it worked via Bluetooth
by Ikmachov on 2020/02/25 23:40
My amp has a Bluetooth option so it would be awesome if this would be compatible with it so I don’t need to hook anything up to my phone. It’s a Marshall Code 50 ;)
Cool but needs a update
by AAABBBDDDEEEFFFGGG on 2020/02/21 16:14
I love this app gives my guitar great sounds but needs a update on the pedals. It has been saying “coming soon” ever since I got the app but all in all a great app.🤙🏼
Please fix!!!
by glennandlisaj on 2020/02/20 02:30
This app would be 100% perfect if it weren’t for the fact that every time I try to open workshop the app crashes!!! Please fix
Not interfacing
by BurdenGuitar on 2020/02/15 13:10
Seems like this would be such an awesome app but it’s not interfacing with my Logic X. Just freezes.
Great app
by chicko comics on 2020/02/10 03:19
Love it
Garbage app
by All Time Almond on 2020/02/03 22:16
doesn’t work at all. Update: it doesn’t work from my iPad 7th gen or iPhone 8 Plus. Connect my guitar through an iRig 2 and no sound at all. This app absolutely trash.
Great
by Amidreza on 2020/01/31 20:16
Great people , great! All u need for playing guitar with effect is here.
Greatest tool yet
by Firebones on 2020/01/30 01:33
Got this for Xmas and it is by far the best tool on my set up. A must buy for guys who are married and have kids and want to jam.
This app is awesome!
by A A ron 123 on 2020/01/03 16:03
This is the easiest way to get the sound you want. Just type in the band or song and bam!! There it is( or sometimes close). And this one was free. Big thank you to the guys at Tonebridge.
Wow
by Johhnbbbbbb on 2019/12/30 05:15
Where’s this been all my life?
Pure Awesomeness!
by matthewstellar on 2019/12/26 06:38
I just bought bias fx for $40 and then downloaded this app. I have to say I’m liking some of the models on here better! Stellar work Devs! This is one of the best free apps I’ve ever stumbled upon. Please please please fix it so inter-app audio works with Cubasis 3 Or with AUM . Thank you again for this amazing free app!
The most fantastic effects processor!
by ayman on 2019/12/19 06:49
They claim it’s no longer under development and I hope they don’t abandon it. This little app is the BEST guitar effects app ever. Not just because its free, but also because the community makes pedals for songs you want and you just plug in, tap, and go! Eric Johnson, Pink Floyd, whatever...just a search and you got your tone and with another tap, the tabs! Other apps and stomp boxes which cost hundreds can’t hold a lighter to ToneBridge. I hope they keep maintenance updates at the very least because it will be sad for the Ultimate Guitar ecosystem if it quits working.
App not working
by Neptunekiller on 2019/11/23 23:39
This app quit working right after the newest ISO update not only on my iPhone but also 2 iPads
Inspiring
by Vitalel on 2019/11/17 03:58
Inspiring in the sense that for some material you can focus on the piece rather than dialing in the sound. Presets for some pretty niche artists are solid.
Awesome app
by Finn TDW on 2019/10/27 16:04
This app is so awesome I just wish you added more preseats
Love at first strum
by bluemeanieface on 2019/10/17 19:45
100% free for use jamming and recording on your bass or guitar. Integrates fairly easily with GarageBand and most DAWs. Scroll through thousands of (successful and less successful) attempts at recreating tones by your favorite axe wielders. Users develop sounds you can play with simulated amps, cabs, microphone placement, stomp boxes, processing units, you name it. You are also able to experiment to your heart’s content and submit content for the rest of the world to enjoy. Try this before you buy expensive packages from other companies. I sound like a commercial but I really really love this product. Not often updated but who cares? This is more than enough for as long as it works on my iPhone. Thanks, devs. Rock on.
Best app ever
by pinkandblossom on 2019/10/15 02:35
Great for my son.....
Awesome app!
by sarge626 on 2019/10/10 16:10
AWESOME! So many effects! Fun to play with, and use when you find ones you like. Definitely cheaper than have so many pedals! Double thumbs up 👍🏻👍🏻. 🤘🏻😎🤘🏻
Everything's wonderful! Except...
by Preston Hirsch on 2019/10/10 03:02
Everything about this app is great besides 2 problems I seem to have on iPad. 1: when I try to publish a sound, the app instantly crashes. 2: more of a suggestion than a problem, but I feel the workspace pedals should be able to be added to a pedalboard without them being published.
Amazing
by Jk01730 on 2019/09/26 01:27
Just got my iRig and was blown away. All the songs I need are ready to go with this app and you can play along. Great job guys and thanks for such an amazing app.
Awesome
by baba razbabo on 2019/09/22 22:56
So much fun to use and the tones/fx are super solid. Great product
Nice App
by OneEyePlumberGuy on 2019/09/20 00:58
Nice little piece of technology, has good potential to become a great app. Nail those tones for us guys, Thanks.
This rocks!
by Biffbyte on 2019/09/13 04:32
Thank you for developing this. I needed it for a long time!
Awesome
by PMT2025 on 2019/09/02 01:32
The Best and Easiest to use so far.
5 stars

This is what I need for practice in the route thank you
#1 but please update Top of the Week list weekly.
by Brucelk19 on 2019/08/09 18:46
I don’t want this to be taken the wrong way, so let me start by stating, this is the best app in the entire AppStore and I don’t just mean the best guitar App. With that said please update the top of the week list it hasn’t been updated in like a year let alone a week. It is an awesome quick-find feature. The only other thing Which I’m not even sure you could do anything about is the all over the place volumes from different song choices. I mean I get that I high gain type song is louder than an acoustic song but if We have our phone’s volume set and we switch from a mellow song to EVH song without touching our ears will get blown out especially with headphones or wake the neighbors in apartment lol. Basically A steady volume across the board then adjust from pedal if they want to turn up not have to change phones volume for each song cuz it is drastically different from song to song. So there’s too many volume controls from guitar itself to the phone’s volume to the pedalboard itself to then each pedal/amp within each said pedalboard and then volume of the headphones/auxiliary in(Amp, iHome, Cab) speaker you chose to play through. If that makes any sense. That’s all. Otherwise be 5stars for me instead of 4. But no other guitar app even gets a 4 from me so you guys got it right and I appreciate this app very much and it has been so helpful and allowed me to experiment with thousands of dollars in sounds with my iPhone and a $13 Irig n some headphones which is all that is required. Thanks again
WOW!! Wonderful app.
by FinnCrimson on 2019/07/18 22:10
Tried a lot of these apps lately. This is by far the best one yet. The sounds are phenomenal as is, but the fact you can edit the sounds to your personal taste makes this great app even greater. Can’t believe this app is free as it sounds so much better than a lot of the paid ones. Again, wow!! Thanks to the developers for making this. You rock. And now, thanks to this app, so do I.
The app seems good but..
by 1MonkeyDFree on 2019/07/06 20:05
Ok so I don’t know if I’m missing something here but I just got the app. And I just can’t find a way to play on a acoustic guitar only? But I would definitely recommend this app.
Needs more artists and more songs
by flashwc on 2019/07/04 12:05
Theres nothing wrong with this app it’s really amazing the only problem is that it doesn’t have a lot of newer artist or their song effects and every time I click on the preview sounds it say coming soon for almost everything please fix update this this is such a great app
So useful omg
by A metal player on 2019/06/25 21:47
I use it with the Irig 2 and wow not only do I not disturb the neighbors because of the headphone jack but the effects can come from almost any song you want to cover (never write reviews but this is just really good so here I am)
Bottom line.
by JAFO_1 on 2019/06/23 05:44
Love it.
Needs Fixing
by Gomez_A on 2019/05/23 22:34
I'm trying to use this app on the 2019 iPad Pro but keeps making clicking sound when I use the USB C adapter to headphone jack. I used this app on my iPhones and worked great. Please, please, PLEASE update app to be compatible with the 2019 iPad pro. It's just disappointing.
Best app ever
by ATFilmsofficial on 2019/05/23 22:01
Do I really need to go in depth about how awesome this app is. Download it! No in app purchase required. If your gonna use this app, get an Irig 2.
Best app on this planet!
by Bioartologist on 2019/05/11 03:29
The sounds you get from this app are so beautiful! No buzz on recordings and you can bring it Into Logic Pro through a Shure MVI and add more effects and master, I love this App!
Hear me out
by james p ridden on 2019/04/26 20:10
For all you experienced guitar players seeing those ukulele people: It’s just an app. People are expressing themselves. Even if they aren’t great they at least are putting themselves out there. The tones are decent. There’s a smaller selection than I like but it’s understandable because perfect tones are hard to make. The app even sends you a reminder if you forget to play guitar for a couple days. 9.8/10
Needs support for Apogee one
by Troy759 on 2019/04/26 01:31
Very cool app just wish it worked with my apogee one device
One of the Best Sound Engines - AmpKit+
by Gern Blasnton on 2019/04/25 03:42
I own the original version of this by Agile Partners, AmpKit+. It was not cheap when purchased with all the add-ons. I still use it to this day but it has been abandoned by Agile for years. A version in AUv3 would be great and this is almost it except for the poor local saving and recalling of your own setups. Add local set up search and save please. I am just grateful someone is keeping this app alive, it really is among the absolute best. And seriously, at this price it’s a “steal.” PS I suppose adding local back up of your own presets would impinge upon your on-line interactivity. But it sure would be appreciated.
Cool app, garbage presets, bad purchase
by Musical Dinosaur on 2019/04/23 06:05
Unless you want to waste all your practice time mucking through song after song that has 2 chords and sounds nothing like what you want to play. Stay way away. Select a Neil Young Song, you get the Beatles. Select 10 other songs and they are the same 3 chords with the same setting. Yes, the top 20 guitar songs are fairly good, some great. But 90% of the sample amp patches are garbage chords with nothing even remotely close to original sound. Unless you just want to create your own, which it does well, or want a very limited number of accurate patches, pass this by. Developers- go through the stacks of uploaded garbage and delete the crap. Check an upload before posting, or add a report garbage option that is actually monitored, and I’ll gladly give this app the 5 stars it probably deserves. But right now it’s just a frustrating time drain. You can only play Smoke on the Water or Sweet Child of Mine so many times. Total crapshoot beyond that. Even trying to listen to the original song data base is messed up. Neil Young gave me CCR. Clapton gave me Metallica. Lot of holes to ‘patch’. You got my money on a promise that wasn’t real. I’ll reload it whenever I see an update, but as of now, I’ll make space for BiasFX for a test.
Excellent app
by JB in Fla on 2019/04/22 22:32
I got an iRig HD and that is to tight integration with apple music can play along to all my favorite songs through the app. Also has links to open the tab. Anyhow good app not sure how it's free but thank you for making it!
Best guitar app!
by ggbmo on 2019/04/13 05:02
This is by far the most useful, easy to use guitar app I’ve seen. It’s motivating to play songs you’re learning in their original tones. Thanks Ultimate Guitar for making such an awesome app and free of charge!
Great
by aye_evi on 2019/04/09 05:28
I dont need to buy a new amp anymore 😂 this app IS GREAT🤘🏻
Ehh
by Bdawg6000 on 2019/04/03 01:10
I like the idea of the app a lot. I don’t know if it’s my irig or not but any distortion has this high pitch squeal as soon as I turn the pedal on. I turn to amp effect down a tad and it goes away until I mute again. I also only get close to the sound I like. I play a lot of ffdp and disturbed so I like to experiment with he app instead of buying a 400 dollar pre amp. Great idea but I just can’t get it to work properly.
Really, Outrageously Good!
by Jomo53 on 2019/03/27 21:39
I have several amp apps, I find myself using Tonebridge more than the others combined. I am particularly enamored with the “ Colonel Plexi 50 “ amp which is outstanding. The pedal selection, cabinet selections and mic selections are truly top notch. I would pay for add- ons, I would pay for Tonebridge.
good queen sound
by voodou66 on 2019/03/24 03:46
a good queen song with my squier working with t ampkit app well. I do have to say sometimes to much feedback but i like a raw sound.
Feedback
by FRANKFRETZEL on 2019/03/23 04:44
Literally every preset I get that has even a little bit of gain just feedbacks like crazy and I don’t know why I have multiple guitars and they all do the same thing
🤟🏼
by H E R M A R on 2019/03/21 17:17
La mejor aplicación. A los desarrolladores; nunca la abandones por favor!!
Can almost replace AmpliTube.
by VicWiley on 2019/03/10 17:42
I love the tones I get with this. Unfortunately, it isn’t functional with many midi controllers. Can only switch between pedals with one button. Also, isn’t compatible with a volume pedal. Would be 5 stars if I could assign more controls. Excellent app otherwise.
Please help me
by Mpayne_989 on 2019/03/03 21:41
It keeps telling me that it was unable to play the song and to try and turn on the explicit content in my phones restrictions settings. It also says to make sure that the region of my Apple ID matches the region of my phone. I turned on explicit content and it still doesn’t work. Please help.
Solid Presets
by Dylon Fehrs on 2019/02/19 00:27
This app is awesome. It’s got almost every preset you could want or need and the quality is solid.
On the verge of greatness!
by Writing comment on 2019/02/11 00:04
This is an awesome app but I find it silly you can’t use your own pedals in a pedal board without publishing them. Not only that but I want to be able to stack pedals so I can have a tone but then add reverb or distortion to the same tone without changing it. It seems like it should be possible. So to summarize I would give 5 stars if these were included. -Adding custom pedals to your pedal board -Stacking Pedals or being able to activate the base pedals also.
Odd misfires
by Learnin' on 2019/02/10 15:33
I couldn’t find a way to ask a question of the developer, so it goes in my review. Generally, I’ve liked this app; getting at least a reasonable approximation of the tone for a song with a single selection saves lots of fiddling with pedal and amp settings for actual practice time. BUT, I’ve had a couple of instances where I want to play along with the song, which I have in my iTunes library, and the app says it’s not there. Also, lately the guitar sounds much sharper and harsher through the app than it used to; maybe my imagination, but thought I’d mention it. At the start, there were times where I might have considered using Tonebridge to play “for real”, but lately the output hasn’t sounded as full as it used to. At least, to me.
Really Cool!

Help

My acoustic doesn’t have one of those plug in thingies. Can I still tone my guitar to match the song or Do i have to have a plug in thingie. PS. I’m a beginner still getting the hang of things
Awesome
by frofrobro7 on 2019/01/07 17:14
Awesome app ultimate guitar is amazing it sounds just like all my favorite songs it works perfectly with Irig 2 it’s just a great app
Incredible! A++
by M@LLEN on 2019/01/01 17:09
The days of spending countless hours trying to recreate your favorite guitar players tones are over! Pick your favorite artist(s) or favorite song(s), plug in your axe and turn on the pedal! •SIMPLICITY• You can adjust the settings on the boxes too if you want, but 99% of the time, it is the exact tone from the original song. I’ve been dying for something like this! It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or an expert guitar player, this is a MUST HAVE application! 🎸 Keep Rockin’
Please fix it with an update.

First, I’ve been using this app for a long time now and i can say that is one of the greatest app that’s free on this category. I really enjoy using my guitar with this app and my Irig2 so I can fully concentrate on what I’m playing, but lately I’ve been having issues with the app. After the latest update was released, the app started crashing every time I tried to open it, yet before I updated the app it was working completely fine. I just want to ask the developers if they could release a new update soon to fix this problem, i really like this app, but unfortunately I haven’t been able to use it for than a month now because of the app crashes. I hope they do something about it soon because this app is great, will rate higher when a solution happens.
Cool app

Nice & easy way to sound like a guitar hero!
Love This App
by Jval68 on 2018/12/22 20:49
Way better than some other apps I’ve wasted money on. I am loving this app!!!
Good app
by Walker W. on 2018/12/21 21:19
The interface was great the customizability and options were endless, overall great experience.
Gain pulsates
by jjewgg on 2018/12/15 01:01
It’s a cool product except when trying to use on a gig the volume pulsates up and down without any control making it unusable. I’ve tried every gain setting and amp vol setting but still get it. Tried to contact the company for ideas and could never figure out how to reach them. So cool but currently unused.

In would give five stars but you can’t take pedals you’ve made in the workshop and add them to a pedalboard
Hear it all
by Rockingbyrd on 2018/12/11 05:55
Great app for people who love music.play on. Thank you tonebridge.
Absolutely Perfect!
by Hdcycle on 2018/11/29 05:39
Wow, I can not believe all the time I have wasted fooling around with “that other app” when Tonebridge was available. Plug and play sound at my fingertips makes it so much more fun to learn songs when the sound is right. Works great with my IRig2 and my IPad. Tone bridge and Ultimate Guitar is the best combo ever! Thanks guys!
Amazing!! How is this fee?
by Timbo6427 on 2018/11/18 21:45
The authenticity of these tones are amazing. The first time I tried it I ended up playing around with it for around three hours. The endless library of tones is astonishing and most of them are dead on the original tone. I’ve tried to reproduce many of these tones with multi effects pedal setting but couldn’t get anywhere near as accurate as this app. The only thing I can’t figure out is how they can make it free. Unless maybe they’re using this app to re-promote these classic songs, because it does just that.
Winning App
by Will be crazy on 2018/02/23 13:03
This is hands down one of the best apps for guitarist, especially for beginners. There’s people out there who have taken the time to create the tones of some of your favorite artists to perfection. This helps tremendously when learning new styles and covers. Being able to play a song in its original tone has helped me learn songs without even looking for a tab. It makes that much of a difference. I want to recommend to people who have had latency issues with Bluetooth on ios to invest in the camera connection kit and an audio interface. I use my audio interface with my ipad or iphone using this kit. Specifically a Scarlett 2i4 version 2. I have had zero issues connecting and have only had a few annoying app crashes which I’m sure will only get better with time. Using an interface allows me to play through my monitors and a next to nothing latency. The most frustrating thing in the world in music is latency and timing, this fixed that issue for me. Also, the ability to use this app in garage band is incredibly useful. I use a clean amp setting in garage band and use Tonebridge to cover the rest. It sounds very impressive. To call this app useful and fun would be an understatement. AAA App for Guitarists, definitely a must have in your app collection. Very easy to use, I absolutely love it. 🙌
Phenomenal App!
by TUZZ21 on 2020/04/15 05:48
This app is perfect for people like myself who want to get awesome tones but don’t have the money to buy pedals. I use this app daily and I’m extremely pleased with the selection of presets, the ability to see tabs with the tap of a button, I can save my favorites, edit presets how I like them, and even (attempt) to make my own. This app has provided hours of endless fun for me, so for anyone out there who wants to get the most out of their guitar on a budget, get an iRig 2 (or other device like it), and get Tonebridge. I can’t explain how much fun this app is! To the developer, your app is honestly the best thing I’ve gotten since my guitar itself. Without it, I probably wouldn’t play guitar nearly as much or have as much fun without these tones. Thanks so much, keep it up with the improvements!
Love at first strum
by bluemeanieface on 2019/10/17 19:45
100% free for use jamming and recording on your bass or guitar. Integrates fairly easily with GarageBand and most DAWs. Scroll through thousands of (successful and less successful) attempts at recreating tones by your favorite axe wielders. Users develop sounds you can play with simulated amps, cabs, microphone placement, stomp boxes, processing units, you name it. You are also able to experiment to your heart’s content and submit content for the rest of the world to enjoy. Try this before you buy expensive packages from other companies. I sound like a commercial but I really really love this product. Not often updated but who cares? This is more than enough for as long as it works on my iPhone. Thanks, devs. Rock on.
Major issues with Irig2 on iPhone
by FA1969 on 2018/05/11 01:52
I downloaded this app. I played quite a number of presets and was astonished by the authenticity of the guitar tones of my favorite artists. I own an Irig2. It works well with other apps such as Amplitude or GarageBand. However, this app has an issue I can’t figure out with Irig2. If I use the Amp output in Irig2 then the processed / effect sound of the guitar is not transmitted, rather only the dry signal. I have to use the headphone output of my Irig2 to get the wet signal and that sounded horrible unless I used the noise gate effect but by doing that my guitar tune lost all sensitivity and it is muzzled. I tired playing with volume and effect levels. No luck. I wish the developers tested and worked out this “compatibility” issue with Irig2. It is a very common and versatile connector due to its compact size. I can’t afford to buy another connector due to cost and size of other makes/models. That would make this app a dream come true.
How Dare You, Developers
by aarong914 on 2018/05/28 19:23
Why on earth would you guys make a totally free app that aids me on my search to find the tones I’ve been looking for, for so long?! And on top of that, you allow me to not only suggest songs for presets, but make my own with a wide selection of amps, cabs, pedals, and microphones! I’m a college student with homework, ya know!! All joking aside, I just absolutely LOVE Tonebridge, and am legitimately trying hard to find anything wrong with it. I suppose that it’s on a device with a touch screen, which might make it harder to control in a live setting? But is that a dealbreaker? Definitely not! You better not be kidding when how you say it’s free, and are determined to keep it that way. I love GarageBand’s guitar features, yet I will admit that I consider this a step up in virtual tone modeling. As a guitar player who doesn’t own any effects pedals (sue me), this app is one of my favorite toys, and love thinking about how it could be used live. Keep doing what you’re doing developers, and please remember all this support you have from the consumers! I send you all virtual hugs.
Cool app, garbage presets, bad purchase
by Musical Dinosaur on 2019/04/23 06:05
Unless you want to waste all your practice time mucking through song after song that has 2 chords and sounds nothing like what you want to play. Stay way away. Select a Neil Young Song, you get the Beatles. Select 10 other songs and they are the same 3 chords with the same setting. Yes, the top 20 guitar songs are fairly good, some great. But 90% of the sample amp patches are garbage chords with nothing even remotely close to original sound. Unless you just want to create your own, which it does well, or want a very limited number of accurate patches, pass this by. Developers- go through the stacks of uploaded garbage and delete the crap. Check an upload before posting, or add a report garbage option that is actually monitored, and I’ll gladly give this app the 5 stars it probably deserves. But right now it’s just a frustrating time drain. You can only play Smoke on the Water or Sweet Child of Mine so many times. Total crapshoot beyond that. Even trying to listen to the original song data base is messed up. Neil Young gave me CCR. Clapton gave me Metallica. Lot of holes to ‘patch’. You got my money on a promise that wasn’t real. I’ll reload it whenever I see an update, but as of now, I’ll make space for BiasFX for a test.
The most fantastic effects processor!
by ayman on 2019/12/19 06:49
They claim it’s no longer under development and I hope they don’t abandon it. This little app is the BEST guitar effects app ever. Not just because its free, but also because the community makes pedals for songs you want and you just plug in, tap, and go! Eric Johnson, Pink Floyd, whatever...just a search and you got your tone and with another tap, the tabs! Other apps and stomp boxes which cost hundreds can’t hold a lighter to ToneBridge. I hope they keep maintenance updates at the very least because it will be sad for the Ultimate Guitar ecosystem if it quits working.
Please fix it with an update.

Odd misfires
by Learnin' on 2019/02/10 15:33
I couldn’t find a way to ask a question of the developer, so it goes in my review. Generally, I’ve liked this app; getting at least a reasonable approximation of the tone for a song with a single selection saves lots of fiddling with pedal and amp settings for actual practice time. BUT, I’ve had a couple of instances where I want to play along with the song, which I have in my iTunes library, and the app says it’s not there. Also, lately the guitar sounds much sharper and harsher through the app than it used to; maybe my imagination, but thought I’d mention it. At the start, there were times where I might have considered using Tonebridge to play “for real”, but lately the output hasn’t sounded as full as it used to. At least, to me.
Omg this app just added the ability to work inside of GarageBand
by Thirdnail on 2017/11/04 01:59
Oh my... I’m just blown away by this app, I had used it for just jamming, but now AUI ability...I am just ...just ....wow, not enough words to say what an amazing sound this has...I bought ToneStack, Bias, AmpliTubes’ “Slash Version” (Marshall Modeled) and this blows them ALL out of the water, the noise reduction is just amazing... the filters and Algorithms are FLAGSHIP, and should be what these other guys STRIVE to emulate. ***However I do wish that they had MORE options to control every effect, (or just develop an app that would allow for more control, and rack graphics and allow for amp set up, without losing this sound) I will tell everyone who has NOT paid for Any of these other amp and effect emulators...like AmpliTube, Bias, ToneStack do not buy if you want this sound... I have bought them all, and their sound it tinny, very thin and brittle. Thank you Devs, you guys rock, and you should have a donate button. ~Third Nail
Very cool
by TheRealDutchee on 2018/02/10 13:44
Very useful and good sounding app. I like to discover in Tonewizard how the sounds are actually being made with Ampkit. I always liked that app and think it sounds great. Nice to see and hear how Tonebrdige uses the Ampkit engine. I signed up for the Tabs app too since these guys are doing a great job. Only wish that when i click the guitar tabs button it would also open the selected song in Tabs. It just takes me to the home screen where i need to manually search for the tabs myself... not sure if this was intended this way or just a bug.

Accessibility.
by aggg1234 on 2018/10/13 23:17
When I was a lad I had a Rhodes V guitar and two brutal pedals. I tried to jam to the sounds of my idols like Laiho and Eschbach. It took every penny I had in high school to do so. Some of us have been through this. Now, with this app the chances of supporting some musically inclined kid is that much easier. We live in a world where many things are so accessible. But where music prevails, I am at a loss. I hope this app can inspire a becoming artist that plays an INSTRUMENT. Like when music was good. Thanks guys. Not sure what your philosophy is but this would be mine. -Alec Garcia.
Out of the park on the last update! Tweakable amp, effect and mic settings!
by Dark Horse (NB) on 2018/02/10 20:55
This last update finally took the app to a different level with the ability to tweak amps, effects and mic settings. The tones sound spot on and now with a ton of songs to choose from, there is something for everybody. The Mesa Mklll is my favorite along with the auto wah. What a phenomenal way to practice and record now with IAA integration. My only suggestion is to give us the ability to mix and match amp, effects etc. Otherwise this is top notch!
Best Guitar App Ever
by Mav777627 on 2018/04/20 08:52
This is one of the greatest apps I have ever come across. I have been trying to figure out how to get the tone from the Top Gun Anthem for the longest time, and the preset I found on here is absolutely killer. So many other awesome presets that are pretty spot on. Really excellent easy to use interface as well. Can’t say enough good things about this app. Must have for all guitarists, especially for those who can’t afford the crazy nice gear, this app will make you sound so much better.
Incredible! A++
by M@LLEN on 2019/01/01 17:09
The days of spending countless hours trying to recreate your favorite guitar players tones are over! Pick your favorite artist(s) or favorite song(s), plug in your axe and turn on the pedal! •SIMPLICITY• You can adjust the settings on the boxes too if you want, but 99% of the time, it is the exact tone from the original song. I’ve been dying for something like this! It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or an expert guitar player, this is a MUST HAVE application! 🎸 Keep Rockin’
Just incredible!!! So powerful!
by samoyedprincess on 2018/09/29 07:25
I have been using this for over two years! I can honestly say this is my favorite app! If there was only one way to improve this out further it would be to have the option to create my own presets and put them on the app for everybody else to enjoy! It’s still missing some key classic rock songs that I really would love to have. Not nearly enough Aerosmith Styx or Boston.
IAA and Audiobus a no go!
by NeedEQforVideos on 2018/05/20 15:07
Great sounding App! Now, if it would just work with Any of my DAWS! I own 7 different ones and so far it won’t work with any of them. In Cubasis the Demo Samples actually Record but me Playing into it does not? I can see no-one addressing this matter or even concerned on the Internet. It sounds Great, but I want to Record with it. Please Fix, or tell what I’m doing wrong. Also does not work with Audiobus. It needs to be an Instrument, not an Effect, I think that might have something to do with it. It shows up but does not connect. I’ve been trying for days now.
Been looking for this since I was a kid!!
by Sapper'94 on 2020/04/10 02:27
I picked up the electric guitar so I could learn to play all my favorites and sound like the original. I learned a lot of good riffs and intros, but was NEVER happy with how they sounded. Now that I am a middle aged father stuck at home for the current COVID pandemic, I found this little GEM! And for the first time I can play all my old favorites and they sound just right. UNBELIEVABLE!! Thank goodness I never got rid of my gear. 🎼🎧🎸
Great app, more customization would be great
by pweisenburger on 2017/09/17 18:34
I love this app. Its tones blow all the other modeling softwares (that cos money) out of the water. However, it would be nice to be able to customize the pedal and eq options on the effects. I find myself finding a song preset that is just a tad too trebly or just a bit too much chorus, and the ability to change that would be great. It doesn't have to be right up front, but an option in the corner somewhere would be perfect.
WOW!! Wonderful app.
by FinnCrimson on 2019/07/18 22:10
Tried a lot of these apps lately. This is by far the best one yet. The sounds are phenomenal as is, but the fact you can edit the sounds to your personal taste makes this great app even greater. Can’t believe this app is free as it sounds so much better than a lot of the paid ones. Again, wow!! Thanks to the developers for making this. You rock. And now, thanks to this app, so do I.
It just gets better and better
by Savvy Seitz on 2018/06/26 18:38
This may be literally the only app on my phone (aside from default apps and Instagram) which has no in-app purchases. You get everything you see advertised for it, and it's so much fun to be able to create your own pedal boards and even make your own pedals. It's buggy sometimes, tbh, but who cares.
On the verge of greatness!
by Writing comment on 2019/02/11 00:04
This is an awesome app but I find it silly you can’t use your own pedals in a pedal board without publishing them. Not only that but I want to be able to stack pedals so I can have a tone but then add reverb or distortion to the same tone without changing it. It seems like it should be possible. So to summarize I would give 5 stars if these were included. -Adding custom pedals to your pedal board -Stacking Pedals or being able to activate the base pedals also.
Best sound, beats paid apps all day
by silverSurfer99! on 2020/07/05 20:40
Beats AmpliTube (paid for slash and jimi) effects and ToneBridge sounds better. It is amazing because you just choose the song and it works. I use mine on iPhone 8 and stomp I/o Amazing! Only ask would be for expression petal support for Wah and whammy or else this would be the only guitar app I would need. Integration to guitar tabs is icing on the cake!
Good update but restrictive
by Biblo swaggins on 2018/06/13 14:38
I love the new workshop option, but I think it’s a crying shame that it’s being made just for already existing songs. You can’t just give us this creative power and say we’re only allowed to publish it for already existing songs. There should be an option to view community made pedals or something similar, to see what people can come up with.
Love this app. 10/10 but one suggestion
by Bluezoid on 2018/03/25 18:57
I would recommend every guitarist get this app it’s awesome. Nothing wrong with it but maybe try and add Bluetooth support from iPhone to iRig/similar device. Just a thought due to new iPhones lacking the standard AUX port bar having one of those AUX to Lightning adapters. Great app though like I said. Keep up the good work
5 stars
by Nate14tnnndunlap on 2017/08/21 16:02
Ok so I have been using this app for awhile and I got to say this app is awesome!! What this app is, is u can play your favorite songs on the guitar and u can use the same amps the guitarist used for the song. Now there are ones that work great but some does not, which really need to be worked on. Overall I give this app 5 stars!!!

by BlackSabateur on 2018/06/28 23:13
I can’t believe how great this app is! Devs must have took a lot of time to come up with it...it really shows. And they’re constantly adding new tones. I placed a request for “Princess of the Night” by Saxon, since it didn’t exist. It was added 2 days later and I received a notification/email! Love this app. Great job, devs!
It was great until the last big update
by JakeB_211 on 2017/12/20 21:38
I’ve been using Tonebridge ever since it came out. I fell in love with it, using it for both my bass and electric guitar. Ever since the last major update, all the presets have LOTS of bass added to them. It’s almost impossible to play my electric guitar with it anymore because of this issue. I hope it gets fixed soon, because I would be glad to use this properly once more.
Essential!
by maxblack113 on 2018/02/10 15:38
This app is simply the greatest tool available for guitar players. It is so much fun to practice and play your favorite songs with the exact tone of the artist. Aside from having fun, you can also record in GarageBand using this app is a plug-in. That feature alone takes this app from “fun” to “essential”.
Absolutely Perfect!
by Hdcycle on 2018/11/29 05:39
Wow, I can not believe all the time I have wasted fooling around with “that other app” when Tonebridge was available. Plug and play sound at my fingertips makes it so much more fun to learn songs when the sound is right. Works great with my IRig2 and my IPad. Tone bridge and Ultimate Guitar is the best combo ever! Thanks guys!
Pure Enjoyment
by Jipper on 2018/07/23 12:31
The most fun I have had with any app of any kind—even more than any game. Connected my guitar with my iRig 2 and then went down a rabbit hole of getting my guitar to sound exactly like every iconic song I could think of. Hours went by like minutes. Great job developers!
Great app but missing a key feature
by Kaleebmustach on 2017/11/01 11:22
I love this app a lot but it’s missing the one and only feature I want. Bluetooth compatibility. I’ve always wanted to just play through my phone connected to a loud speaker and just play. The phone is way to quiet in many situations and it’s just plain not loud. Please add a Bluetooth option.
More NOFX/Punk Bass Tones
by music guy 888 on 2017/12/23 04:51
I’m going to start by saying I LOVE this app and get excited anytime there is a new update! It’s always fun to see what the Dev’s have added in or tweaked. Now my only gripe is there aren’t too many punk bass tones. Sure there are some but I think there could be more. Other than that I love it! Thanks guys and girls!
Really, Outrageously Good!
by Jomo53 on 2019/03/27 21:39
I have several amp apps, I find myself using Tonebridge more than the others combined. I am particularly enamored with the “ Colonel Plexi 50 “ amp which is outstanding. The pedal selection, cabinet selections and mic selections are truly top notch. I would pay for add- ons, I would pay for Tonebridge.
One of the Best Sound Engines - AmpKit+
by Gern Blasnton on 2019/04/25 03:42
I own the original version of this by Agile Partners, AmpKit+. It was not cheap when purchased with all the add-ons. I still use it to this day but it has been abandoned by Agile for years. A version in AUv3 would be great and this is almost it except for the poor local saving and recalling of your own setups. Add local set up search and save please. I am just grateful someone is keeping this app alive, it really is among the absolute best. And seriously, at this price it’s a “steal.” PS I suppose adding local back up of your own presets would impinge upon your on-line interactivity. But it sure would be appreciated.
Needs more artists and more songs
by flashwc on 2019/07/04 12:05
Theres nothing wrong with this app it’s really amazing the only problem is that it doesn’t have a lot of newer artist or their song effects and every time I click on the preview sounds it say coming soon for almost everything please fix update this this is such a great app
So useful omg
by A metal player on 2019/06/25 21:47
I use it with the Irig 2 and wow not only do I not disturb the neighbors because of the headphone jack but the effects can come from almost any song you want to cover (never write reviews but this is just really good so here I am)
Everything's wonderful! Except...
by Preston Hirsch on 2019/10/10 03:02
Everything about this app is great besides 2 problems I seem to have on iPad. 1: when I try to publish a sound, the app instantly crashes. 2: more of a suggestion than a problem, but I feel the workspace pedals should be able to be added to a pedalboard without them being published.
Can almost replace AmpliTube.
by VicWiley on 2019/03/10 17:42
I love the tones I get with this. Unfortunately, it isn’t functional with many midi controllers. Can only switch between pedals with one button. Also, isn’t compatible with a volume pedal. Would be 5 stars if I could assign more controls. Excellent app otherwise.
This Is The One
by Nkdeddyfastfrets on 2018/03/25 14:19
These guys really have got their spit together and they are on a roll. Mind blowing. Together with the tabs app and now your sound library this just knocks it out of the park. Great work. Actually supreme ultimate can’t touch this work. Wow I’m totally blown away by this company. YOU DUDES ROCK!
Must have!!!
by Savvy Jay on 2017/08/29 20:53
I LOVE THIS APP!!!!! Tons of amazing presets available at my fingertips. It's really nice if you want to take a break and jam on some fun presets or if you're trying to find a sound... it's already there so you don't lose creativity in the process. It's so much fun! A+
Excellent app
by JB in Fla on 2019/04/22 22:32
I got an iRig HD and that is to tight integration with apple music can play along to all my favorite songs through the app. Also has links to open the tab. Anyhow good app not sure how it's free but thank you for making it!
Strong feedback
by Bwarmuth on 2017/08/24 21:31
This app is fantastic for people looking to get great tones from some of their favorite songs. However I've noticed (and it may just be an issue on my end) that I get really strong feedback when using some of the tones. Otherwise fantastic app
Ehh
by Bdawg6000 on 2019/04/03 01:10
I like the idea of the app a lot. I don’t know if it’s my irig or not but any distortion has this high pitch squeal as soon as I turn the pedal on. I turn to amp effect down a tad and it goes away until I mute again. I also only get close to the sound I like. I play a lot of ffdp and disturbed so I like to experiment with he app instead of buying a 400 dollar pre amp. Great idea but I just can’t get it to work properly.
Great, but disappointing
by BigDaddy1451 on 2018/08/28 03:59
I love this app so much, but it’s preset request page is dead. There aren’t any new requests being made. The last time a pedal requested was made on the page, was 3 weeks ago, and before that, months. It’s so annoying that I can’t get my Bulls on Parade wah pedal, or my Lateralus delay intro pedal :(
Great but...
by Mr Collin Reed on 2018/01/16 04:52
App is great to get cool tones, but in order to sound like it's preview you have to give it volume and effect boost and I have a horrible headache from the feedback, please fix because the tone does not sound like the preview, thanks.
Amazing
by Cre1mem1 on 2020/07/12 18:41
Was slightly disappointed with the tablature app because of all the pay walls, however this right here is amazing. So many unique effects right in my own guitar. Very well done.
