    depends what that even is homosexual. Can't see the connector. You do realize an electric guitar produces an analog signal so you need some type of converter right? You're not that moronic yes? I'm assuming the guitar is going through some soundcard or foot pedal converter before reaching that usb connector and not directly?

      No. You'd need something like a vox amplug 2. And stop looking at my stuff you bastard.

      why

      Guitars don't use 3.5mm output. You need a 1/4in line-level cable, which will probably require another adapter to convert to 3.5mm. I'm not an audio engineer, but I feel like at that point your analog signal is gonna be super weak. Maybe an amp like headphone nerds use would fix that, idk.

        Your picrel is to plug in headphones, not a guitar. Guitar pickups need an amp. This vox thing is a pocket one, chargeable by usb I think.

        You could get both and plug an aux line to play a backing track on your iphone as you play guitar and hear the mixed result in your headphones.

        You could also get a usb-c sound card with line in and use this vox thing to record your guitar playing as well.

        There's also pocket amps that work over Bluetooth as well.

            OP is being intentionally moronic, I see.
            OP you need an audio interface with an amplifying 1/4” analog input or it won’t work. Look up that Vox thing or an iRig or a Roland Go Mixer.

          You would be taking a very low signal level (guitar) and amplifying it in software. The noise floor and tone would be terrible, if you could even hear anything.

            op is an apple dongle but here is chip used in similar devices

            >amp itself doesnt change the tone
            The tone knob on my guitar is just how much resistance a bypass capacitor has to the signal lines.
            Ergo, yes, if that is tone, then any amp can change it.

            ok i didnt know that's how it works but you can still just use a resistor or one of those high impedance connectors

            You'll have to do some rewiring or get some dongle

            oh yeah so that's why it the sound had weird phase issues when i tried this with my acoustic, shouldve thought of that it's pretty obvious

            I can connect my electric guitar to my 3.5mm on my PC, it's louder on Microphone than Line In, because the gain values are different.
            My acoustic, which has a 9V active pickup (well, microphone, technically) works on either.
            I use my multi-effect pedal with my electric as a preamp usually, though.

            Set your volume knob all the way down, connect it and slowly turn it up, as long as you have wired GND with GND and L with MIC, it should work, but it could be a very faint signal only.

            >but it could be a very faint signal only.
            so it should works perfectly well as long as the dongle has enough gain or whatever it's called?

            No. The analog signal electic guitars put out is very weak. You will need, at the least, a guitar-USB cord; they are like $12 and the drivers for it, look into ASIO4all. If you are looking for a better solution for recording, USB audio interfaces are fairly cheap, you can get a decent Beringher or focusrite for about $75.

            At that point, just use your iPhone as a room mic and record your acoustic guitar that way. Won’t be the best but it’ll have sovl and will sound better than the wrong kind of ADC

            Full tone is max resistance, i.e. bypass virtually disconnected.
            Never mind, ignore that.
            >so that's why it the sound had weird phase issues
            Bro, please never touch 230VAC mains electricity, you might get yourself killed with that attitude.
            Low DC voltages (<24V) are generally safe for you as human being, but you could still start fires by short-circuiting something.
            >should works perfectly well as long as the dongle has enough gain

      One difference is the input level, the amplifier for input on the iphone one might be built to assume mic-level input (millivolts) whereas guitars apparently output line-level output, which are on the order of 1 volt or something. So it might sound blown out if you try it. I think older macs used to have support for line-level input, but they removed it as cost cutting measures since probably nobody used it.

    Without a real amp on input, you'll get really weak signal in the microphone input. You can digitally amplify that, but that'll amplify all the noise too. I'm not sure what the latency on the dongle is, but my laptop's integrated duplex jack port doesn't work well with low buffer sizes.
