Overview

IK Multimedia has created a solution for integrating any type of microphone with any iOS device, and that solution is the iRig PRE. The iRig PRE gives you ultimate flexibility in mobile recording with your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, allowing you to connect any type of microphone from regular stage dynamic types, to professional studio-quality condensers, giving you an extremely wide range of options.

iRig PRE is the first high-quality microphone preamp designed specifically for iOS devices that allows musicians to use their favorite high-quality stage or studio mics with their iOS device. You simply plug-in your favorite microphone directly into the standard XLR connector of iRig PRE with no need for extra cables or adapters.

Its adjustable thumbwheel gain control allows the user to easily make precise level settings. The onboard 9V battery provides the necessary voltage for phantom-powered studio condenser microphones allowing up to 15 hours of continuous use. The 3.5mm (1/8") standard stereo headphone output allows monitoring while recording, and the lightweight housing sports a convenient cable for iOS device connection. The iRig PRE also includes a Velcro strip slot for easy mounting on a mic stand or other stage locations.

Like all other IK Multimedia microphones, it includes 2 free apps: iRig Recorder (an easy-to-use recording/editing app) and VocaLive (an effects processing app for singers). And like the entire range of iRig accessories, it's highly portable thanks to its pocket-sized form factor for recording anywhere.

FEATURES

  • 40 cm (15.75") TRRS cable to connect to any iOS device headset jack
  • XLR input connector for microphones
  • Gain control
  • +48 V phantom power
  • Headphone output
  • On/Off switch
  • Power/Phantom Power provided by 9V battery
  • Battery life is approximately 40 hours with dynamic microphones and 15 hours with phantom powered condenser studio microphones
  • Includes 2 free apps: iRig Recorder, an easy-to-use voice recording/editing app, and VocaLive, a multi-effects processing app for singers.
  • Compatible with iPhone/iPod touch/iPad.
SPECIFICATIONS
  • iRig PRE is compatible with iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G, iPod touch (4th, 3rd and 2nd generation), iPad 3rd generation, iPad 2 and iPad. They all require iOS 3.1.3 or later.
  • iRig PRE does not support 1st generation iPod touch models, due to their lack of a mic input.

Best accessory from IK Multimedia!

By Sean Kelly

from Maricopa, AZ

Comments about IK Multimedia iRig PRE Mic Pre for iOS Devices:

I purchased the iRig Mic when it released and have used it sporadically mostly due to the ambient noise it pics up during a live setting. I've been waiting for the pre forever! I used it last week in a live worship setting using the standard SM58, and true to advertising worked FLAWLESSLY! Ambient noise was cut down drastically due to the cardioid shape of the SM58. Thanks IKM for making such a great product, and thanks GC for selling it!

Works As Designed but Has a Major Flaw

Comments about IK Multimedia iRig PRE Mic Pre for iOS Devices:

I wanted to love this product. Sonically, I performed as advertised. HOWEVER, the fly wheel that controls the gain is the epitome of poor design. There's no way to see where the sweet spot is. The Irig PRO seems to have a better design; however, I chose to go with Saramonic - same great performance WITH a wheel that I can see my ideal settings.

      Comments about IK Multimedia iRig PRE Mic Pre for iOS Devices:

      I ended up buying 2 of these. One for my 8 year old son as his first guitar and one for my dog. Brutus (my dog) doesn't know how to play guitar yet, unfortunately, but it's a work in progress. Cleatus (my son) found this to be a pretty fun guitar to pluck for a couple hours. It was well worth it since most kids these days just spend the every second on their phones, but hey, at least I got him to get off his phone for a couple hours. I'll probably sell one of them to finish paying off Brutus' new car I bought him the other day.

        I bought the iRig Pre a couple of months ago and everything was going great until a few weeks ago when it started to make a clicking sound as soon as I connected to my iPad or iPhone, and it will ruin my recordings.
