Yousician works with any real 6-string guitar, be it acoustic, electric or electroacoustic, in standard tuning.
If you play an acoustic guitar, place your device in a comfortable place. The microphone in your device will pick up the sounds you play. When using the device microphone for recognition, you don't need a special adapter, cable or a microphone.
If you want to, you can use f.ex an iRig (mobile) or a 1/4" to USB cable (desktop). These can help with recognition. To set up an electric or electroacoustic guitar with an audio interface:
- Plug your guitar in to your device
- After you connect your guitar to your device, you might need to change the input device. You can change it via the Advanced audio settings from the Game tab.
You can check setup instructions for iOS and Android devices here.
If your audio interface does not show up in the Advanced settings, check the "Audio MIDI setup" if you are using a Mac. Also make sure to turn up the volume to your guitar. You can see if it works by observing the MIC/ VU meter while playing the guitar (in the tuner screen).
With your guitar connected, adjust the Mixer feature from the in song pause menu to hear yourself play.
