So fast and easy to get a quick tone - Sometimes, all you need to do is get a tone. You don’t want to tweak, you just want to get into it and play. ToneBridge is perfect for this. Find a song, get a tone and go! What a great app to respond to your urge to play!

Needs to be a plug-in - Fun for messing around, but if you want to record with Garageband/Audacity/Logic/Protools/etc., it needs to be a VST or AU plug-in. How ‘bout it, science?

Version 1.1.2
Review by Rightfield

Great useful app - Would be nice if they included a tuner with it. Most tones are very close to the original, there’s just no escaping matching your guitar as close as possibble with the original to get the tone truly spot on. However this does the job very well without having to tinker with loads of effects. I found that most effects suffer from too much treble, I guess when they programed the tones their guitars’ bass and tone dials were set to the middle. Otherwise a real joy.

Great App! - This app does exactly what it says it will do. Great concept, great tones. I can’t wait until I can use it with Garage Band! Well Done.

Version 1.1.2
Review by halicarnassus

Almost perfect - As free apps go, I’m amazed. Having played with multiple different tone modeling programs, this is about the best I’ve found, especially for the money. Only two things I’ve noticed. Their Shellac tone isnt quite right. But imitating a harmonic percolator isnt easy. The other gripe I have it that when lined in via USB to 1/4-inch, the program sees my cable and guitars. System prefs sound sees the input and the output correctly. Audio Midi Setup does as well. But when you load up a program like oh, Logic, or Garage band, while they see the instrument at the system level, any recording is the line level input of the guitar, sans the effect modeling. So far, in an hour of mucking about, I’ve yet to find a way around this that wouldnt involve another piece of software, or slaving this computer, to another computer, to record the effected audio signal into a recording program. Sure, the program is great for practicing and jamming, but if I actually want to record the signal, I cant? Developers, that should be a priority one. Otherwise, the program is an interesting novelty, and thats about it.

Review by JJJJ Man

Great Tones! - This is a great app for incredible guitar tones. I am so glad it is finally on the Mac. It’s way easier to use an audio interface with it than the iRig. The only thing that needs to happen is it needs to be turned into a plugin so it can be used in Logic/Protools/etc. Is that going to happen any time soon?
