Evolver Review

While keyboardists have long enjoyed a wealth of sounds and textures at their fingertips (no pun intended), guitarists have been faced with the prospect of spending hundreds, even thousands on an arsenal of less than portable individual effects units, or settling with the limited range of tones from even the best pickup-tube amp combination. No more. Apps that do real-time effects processing for instruments like guitars, basses, and keyboards are improving, thanks to more capable sound engines and minimization of dreaded latency. For example, Amplitube by IK Multimedia opened the doors to a dreamworld of iconic amps and effects that would take a fortune to amass in the real world, but can now be had for the price of a case of beer. Or, if you’d rather just buy that case of beer and enjoy three great amps, four mics, and three different effects without dropping a dime, you might give its free competitor GuitarTone a whirl. review by Connor McKnight
