Play your favorite songs in their original sound using your Mac! It's a whole new experience in learning songs.

Tonebridge gives you the sound of the original song out of the box. Plug in your guitar into your Mac and start playing. It’s that simple!

A huge collection of song presets allows you to choose effects from light acoustic sounds of "Come As You Are" to crushing heavy roars of "Master Of Puppets".

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!

Version 1.2.2
Review by VO_Mike

Royally ticked off with the new update - Looked forward to the new update which fixes the integration with Logic Pro and Garageband. Got it to work with Garageband, but not Logic Pro. Still investigating that. Might be on my end. But what I’m ticked off about is that, after installing the new update, over 250 favorites I previously marked are gone! Every last one. I tried signing out and signing back in, with no luck. I spent a long time going through each artist, listening to the tones of songs I liked, then adding them to my favorites. Guess what? I get to do it again. If I can be bothered. As a former software tester, I know that you have to test lots of scenarios before releasing a new build to make sure you don’t break something that previously worked. Unless I’m just “lucky", a “does it maintain previous Favorites?” scenario wasn’t tested. I appreciate that this is a free app so I should probably limit my expectations. But I don’t appreciate all the time I spent having been wasted.

Review by Skully2015

Won’t show as a AU in Logic X - Just want to let you guys know that there is NO component (AU) showing in the Components folder after the update and after reinstalling the software. I tried looking in Application Support under both Logic and GarageBand, AND in both the hard drive and home folders to see if it was there and the AU (component) is nonexistent in either. What is the component titled? If I knew I could do a search and at least see if it’s installed in another location. Anyway.. I really hope to see this software as a AU.. It was actually the first thing I thought when I used it! :) :) I also wanted to add this product has HUGE potential as an AU. Not only can you find certain tones your looking to use in your OWN songs… it’s also a great tool to reamp existing tracks! You guys have a $$$ maker here imho. Hope ya can resolve the issue soon… I am DYING to try this in a existing project I’m currently working on. Anyway.. Good luck! and I promise to give a full review when this issue is resolved. Peace!

Review by buglxvii

Where’s the AU? - Wrote customer support for missing AU. Recieved a reply that Tonebridge would have AU support in October 2017. Update recieved October 31st…no AU support. Great app for practicing but, without AU support (as advertised and promised) it is useless as a home studio tool. Meh, it is free.

Review by Loving it in la

Totally amazing for free app. - There’s plenty of apps I’ve paid for that I’ve immediately regretted so I was suspicious this one was free, what’s the catch right? There is none. It just works… right away… and it’s got a huge catalogue of notorious hard sounds that are hard to emulate, especially anyone who has ever tried to recreate any Radiohead song. Awesome job you guys, thanks for the rabbit hole of “oh my god have I been playing that long” this holiday. Cheers.

Review by Rcariddi

Great for Free - Although I have a Positive Grid BIAS FX, I figured I give this a try. For free, it’s fantastic. Quick easy, and sounds are solid. Would love to see a little more ‘tweakability’ , Tone, Delay. But it’s free, so I don’t expect an equivalent to an Amplitube/Positive grid, etc. Great job.
