The all-in-one audio/MIDI interface that fits in your pocket.
The iRig PRO is a completely full-featured compact audio and MIDI interface that you can use with your XLR microphones, your guitar and bass, your keyboard or other line-level source and your MIDI controllers. With an XLR/TRS combo jack, you can instantly connect microphones and instruments to the iRig PRO, and it features the same MIDI connectivity and controls as found in IK Multimedia's iRig MIDI interface. On top of all this connectivity in a compact ultra-portable size, the iRig PRO comes with a complete suite of some serious music-making software and apps courtesy of IK Multimedia.
Now when you're on the go, you can record vocals, harmonies, acoustic instruments, electric guitar/bass, keyboards and more without changing your interface and disrupting your creative flow. You will find iRig PRO to be the most versatile iPhone and iPad accessory in your gig bag. And when you get back to your Mac, plug iRig PRO into your USB port and keep jamming away on your laptop or desktop.
You'll be amazed by the compact design of the unit and what it actually delivers. About the size of a travel tube of toothpaste, iRig PRO fits nicely into small spaces like your gig bag, the accessory compartment of your hardshell case or the side pocket of your cargo shorts. Just don't forget about it and run it through the laundry.
Multiple personalities, universal connectivity
iRig PRO can handle all of your stuff, from XLR condenser mics to balanced 1/4" TRS instrument cables for your keyboards and MIDI input. Whatever you're connecting to your device, iRig PRO has you covered. And iRig PRO comes with three connector cables: Lightning, 30-pin and USB, to ensure that you've got the right connections.
iRig PRO also features an input gain control knob. This lets you dial in just the right amount of input gain to give your sounds and tones just the right amount of sparkle, thump and headroom.
One thing you'll notice with lesser (and sometimes even greater) mobile interfaces is the noise factor. Some interfaces actually introduce unwanted noise and interference into your signal for no reason at all… not a cool thing. In iRig PRO, noise is virtually eliminated thanks to the high-definition preamp design. You'll have to hear it to believe it.
Highest quality A/D conversion
A/D conversion is what happens when the analog signal from your instrument, like your guitar, bass or keyboard, is "converted" into a format that digital devices (like your iPhone/iPad/Computer) can read, understand and modify. It's like having a foreign language translator right there plugged into your iPhone. As you can guess, not all language translators are the same. Some are better, and some not so good. In the digital world, the quality of the translator is indicated by the "bit" number. 24-bit conversion is outstanding, and it accurately and completely converts the entire range of your signal and transients, preserving all of the nuances of your instrument. In plain terms, you'll get the same warm sound of your beloved instrument in the digital realm of your mobile device that you fell in love with at the store.
Power of the phantom – Use your studio mics
High-quality studio condenser microphones require 48V of external power to function. It's part of what makes them sound so good, crisp and ultra-accurate. With iRig PRO, you can plug your condenser mic in, flip the phantom power switch and record until your heart's content. A simple standard (and included) 9V will provide plenty of power for your mics.
30 pins of Lightning USB
Anywhere you play, you can use iRig PRO. It comes with three cables to connect to all of your playing/recording devices: a Lightning cable for newer iPhones, iPads and the iPad mini; a 30-pin dock connector for "older" devices; and a USB cable for connection to your Mac laptop or desktop. Start a song on the bus or in the hotel room, polish it on the plane, finish it at home or in the studio… iRig PRO is truly the only interface you'll need.
All this and MIDI, too
In addition to all the great audio functionality you get with iRig PRO, it also functions as a plug-and-play MIDI interface. Use the included MIDI cable to connect any MIDI keyboard or other controller to your iOS device or Mac and play virtual instruments or change parameters in Core-MIDI-compatible apps and software. When you use iRig PRO with an IK MIDI-capable iOS app like AmpliTube or VocaLive, the app's premium MIDI functionality — which otherwise requires an in-app purchase to activate — is included free.
iRig PRO comes with some serious music-making tools. On the iPhone, iPad and iPod, you get (from the App store) AmpliTube including an additional 4 exclusive gear models (Metal W and Metal 150 amps, Wharmonator and X-Flanger stomp effects). You also get VocaLive, the professional practicing, performing and recording vocal processor with two effects and single-track recorder, expandable to 12 effects and 4-track recorder (up to 8-tracks on VocaLive for iPad). Also included is SampleTank, the ultimate virtual instrument and sound workstation featuring a complete expandable collection of instruments and effects. SampleTank comes with an additional 48 sounds to supplement the 20 sounds originally included. iRig PRO also includes iGrand Piano with three world-class, multi-velocity stereo grand and upright piano instruments (1 included, 1 after registering iRig PRO, 1 after registering iGrand Piano FREE), expandable to 15 additional studio-grade instruments.
On the Mac side, you'll get full expandable versions of AmpliTube Metal with Custom Shop, SampleTank XT professional sound workstation and T-RackS Classic mixing and mastering suite, with four classic effects processors.
