There's a good chance that albums in the future could be recorded using GuitarConnect Pro. The product is a new gadget that hooks your guitar up directly to your iPhone or iPad. The device is designed to work with the GarageBand app allowing you to lay down smooth riffs on-the-go.
According to the device's maker, the GuitarConnect Pro provides a 100% noise-free connection when plugged into an iDevice, and lets you adjust the volume of said smooth riffs. The GuitarConnect Pro sells for $79, a bargain compared to other alternatives. Technology like this has to make you wonder how many years society is from seeing the first album recorded using only an iPad or iPhone.
