Kool Tools: the iRig Pro for iOS, OS X devices


IK Multimedia's iRig Pro is a versatile, universal digital mobile audio/MIDI interface for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac.

Pocket-sized, battery-powered and fully portable, it's designed to give mobile musicians and songwriters an interface that can handle the widest variety of audio input signals, so they can create music and audio on the go anywhere, any time. The iRig Pro accepts virtually every type of audio and MIDI input. Users can plug in a dynamic or condenser microphone; a guitar, bass or other Hi-Z instrument; or any line-level source.

Additionally, the iRig Pro is equipped with a MIDI input for keyboards, pads and controllers. Its audio and MIDI inputs can be used simultaneously, for example, to control guitar or vocal software with MIDI foot controllers or pedals, for switching presets or controlling effects levels.

Plus, the iRig Pro comes with a suite of IK's music creation apps like AmpliTube, VocaLive, SampleTank, iGrand and iRig Recorder. It's compatible with most audio and MIDI processing apps for the mobile musician. Mac users will also enjoy the inclusion of premium software with iRig PRO, like AmpliTube, T-RackS and SampleTank.

The iRig Pr0 features a 1/4-inch XLR combo input connector for connection with standard XLR cables, a 1/4-inch mono line or instrument signal cables, and a switchable 48V phantom power supply for use with studio condenser microphones. It has a microphone-and-instrument preamp; a high-quality 24-bit A/D converter, a preamp gain control; amd LED indicators for device status, MIDI, phantom power and signal level.

The iRig Pro is powered by the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, or USB, when used with instruments or a dynamic microphone. A 9V battery (included) provides phantom power to compatible microphones. The iRig Pro also features a standard MIDI input for connection of MIDI devices like drum machines, controllers and MIDI keyboards.

The iRig Pro comes with three detachable cables, compatible with Lightning, 30-pin and USB connectors, respectively, allowing for digital connection to every model of iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and Mac, out of the box, with no need for adapters. A MIDI cable with a standard MIDI jack is also provided to connect the widest variety of MIDI-compatible keyboards and controllers.

The iRig Pro is class compliant and compatible with Core Audio and Core MIDI, so it can be used with any audio and MIDI processing apps for iOS and Mac OS, for true plug-and-play performance without additional hardware/software. For iPhone and iPad users, it comes with a suite of IK Multimedia's most popular apps for mobile music creation, including AmpliTube Free for guitarists and bass players, VocaLive Free for singers, SampleTank Free and iGrand Piano Free for keyboard players and iRig Recorder Free for recording engineers.

Al these apps work together with Audiobus integration. Additionally, exclusive AmpliTube gear and SampleTank sounds are available as free add-ons for iRig Pro users.

For Mac users, it includes AmpliTube Custom Shop, the industry standard guitar-and-bass processing software; a free version of AmpliTube Metal; T-RackS Custom Shop, the mixing-and-mastering effect suite with a free version of T-RackS Classic; and SampleTank XT, a sound workstation that includes over 1GB of sounds. All these software titles are available both as plug-ins for the most popular digital audio workstations (including GarageBand), or as standalone applications for immediate plug and play.

The iRig Pro will ship later this month from music and consumer electronics retailers worldwide for US$149.99. It can now be ordered from the IK Online Store and select retailers. For more info go to www.ikmultimedia.com/irigpro .
