There is no doubt that the music industry keeps up with the technology. At the early stage of the IT revolution, analogue effects were replaced by the digitals, and after that a new era has arrived. Today we are surrounded by smart systems and we use our smartphones to handle almost everything. The question is whether we could utilize the digital effects in a smart device application too. We already know that the answer is yes. With the help of an iPad processor we are able to generate the sound of a guitar. We can also create the appropriate user interface on a large touch screen.

As a result of my research, I managed to develop a multieffect application for guitarists. It runs on iOS operation system, which is the system of iPad devices, for instance. It was a great challenge for me, since I had to learn from the very beginning how to develop for iOS and how to process audio signals. A brief summary of the theoretical background can be found at the beginning of my thesis. Afterwards I have described how I could create my application. At the end of my thesis I gave a hint about my future plans, including the way of promoting my application. Moreover, I have tried to summarize the tasks which I will have to fulfil in the near future.

I believe that the first edition of my application could be a great base of a multieffect application, which could be downloaded from the App Store. Of course, it would be also an application for musicians.
