I just recently got an IK Multimedia iRig HD for my iPad which I have been using extensively for recording new riff ideas over the past couple of weeks, now IK Multimedia have announced a new battery powered universal audio interface called the iRig PRO which works not only on iOS devices but also on Macs and allows you to connect guitar, bass or line-level source such as microphones and also MIDI. iRig PRO comes with Lightning, 30-pin and USB cables and a selection of IK music apps and software so you can rock right out of the box.
Rig PRO is equipped with a 1/4”/XLR combo input, which lets you use a standard guitar cable to connect guitars, basses and line-level sources, or an XLR cable for microphones. It sports switchable 48V phantom power, so you can use studio condenser mics; an input gain control; a high-quality preamp and 24-bit A/D conversion. iRig PRO delivers pristine audio to your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or Mac, anytime and everywhere.
iRig PRO’s built-in MIDI interface is one of the many features that sets this pocket-sized powerhouse apart from its competition. Plug in any keyboard, pad unit, or other MIDI-compatible controller (we suggest our iRig KEYS keyboard) using the included MIDI cable, and control virtual instruments and MIDI parameters in Core MIDI apps and software for iOS or Mac. Between its MIDI and audio capabilities.
