Smaller than a travel tube of toothpaste, but more versatile than even the biggest desktop interfaces. The iRig Pro is the first mobile interface to let you record vocals, harmonies, acoustic instruments, electric guitar/bass, keyboards and more, all through the same device.
All the same connectivity and controls found in IK's iRig MIDI, with the additional ability to record directly from an instrument or via a microphone - you'll never need another interface on the move again. Incorporate an iPad in your keys rig, record with your iPhone and mix on your laptop with a pocket size audio interface.
There's a built-in preamp gain control knob to let you tweak your sound before you've even recorded a note, and thanks to the new high-definition preamp design it's virtually noiseless.
The 3 included cables (Lightning, 30-pin and USB) mean it's compatible with older iOS devices as well as the latest ones, and when you're back from recording on your travels you can plug the iRig Pro straight into your Mac to continue working on your music.
Every audio interface includes some form of analogue-to-digital conversion - something that takes the warm and human sound of your instrument and turns it into something digital that your recording software can understand. While that may not sound like the most exciting thing in the world, audio to digital conversion has a massive effect on your sound, and the iRig Pro's conversion is among the best in the world. It's 24 bit (outstanding!), and keeps all the nuances of your instrument intact.
Another bit of iRig Pro magic is the way it handles phantom power studio condenser microphones that normally need 48V of external power to function. Thanks to the device's special circuitry, you don't need 48 volts of batteries...just the one 9 volt battery (included in the box) is enough to power your mic.
iRig Review In MusicAppBlog
"From a design perspective, I think IK Multimedia have got this just about spot on ... with a good balance between features, audio quality, portability and price, if the iRig PRO doesn’t sell to iOS musicians by the bucket-load, then I’ll be very surprised!"
