An extremely versatile system, it lets you make beats, launch loops, mix like a DJ and a whole lot more no matter whether you’re on stage, in the studio or anywhere between.
Making music on an iOS device is intuitive, fun and you can do it anywhere. The iRig Pads add that important element of physical control and feedback, without taking up much more room in your backpack or gigbag.
iRig Pads is so portable that you can take it with you anywhere. It’s smaller than an iPad and less than 1” thick (23mm). It features a slim, compact and lightweight design that can be slipped into any backpack or laptop bag and carried around with ease. And for even greater portability it’s been designed with ultra low-consumption, which means it’s fully functional as soon as you connect it into its host device — You don’t need a power adaptor. Just plug it in to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch via its included Lightning cable (30-pin connector sold separately) or your Mac or PC via its included USB cable and start groovin’.
You’ll enjoy incredible tactile control thanks to iRig Pads’ 4x4 grid of 16 velocity-sensitive, backlit multicolor rubber pads. Each pad lights up in multiple colors - red, green, orange and every shade in between – depending on the velocity of your playing and the MIDI information sent by your chosen music app or software.
iRig Pads’ familiar 16-pad layout makes it an ideal platform for creating beats while on the go. It comes with SampleTank free for iPhone/iPod touch and iPad, the portable version of IK’s powerful sound workstation.
Full of high quality sampled instruments, drums, loops and MIDI patterns; it puts a world of sound in your pocket. With iRig Pads you can control it to effortlessly make beats and grooves with its drum-machine-style “pads” interface.
Beyond its music-making abilities, iRig Pads can also be used for live DJ mixing. You will also soon be able to use it with DJ Rig free for iPad. It’s a full-featured DJ mixing app that lets you sync and blend the songs in your device’s iTunes Music Library via two virtual turntables. With iRig Pads you’ll be able to push the pitch, control effects and EQs, cue samples and enjoy nearly full tactile control of the app. With iRig Pads and DJ Rig, you have a portable DJ setup that you can take with you anywhere.
