Right soo ive been looking for a home amp for practising in my bedroom. Ive been scouring around looking at all different practise amps and pedals to run with headphones.

Then it dawned on me...You can get stuff for iphones and ipads that just let you plug in and play, soo surely i can get something to download strait onto my mac that will allow me to do the same thing right? The problem is i cant seem to actually find any.

Does anyone know if its possible to simply download amplitube onto my mac and just use the little 1/4" to 1/16" connector they supply to run strait into my mic slot? And if soo where do i go about getting it from?

Any help would be great or even any alternative ideas would be appreciated.
All i want it something thats really easy, has relatively good tone, with a built in tuner and just plug in and play simplicity.

Go to the recording forum & read the interfaces sticky. There's loads of recommendations there for what you're trying to do.

Using the mic slot is not recommended.

Depending on your mac you can use an iRig with it and just use Garageband. Though the amp models suck.

Yes. It's discussed in the sticky I mentioned in my first reply.
