IK Multimedia iRig Pre 2
The IK Multimedia iRig Pre 2 gives you a pocket-sized mic preamp for easily using your XLR mics with your iPhone, iPad, Android, or DSLR/M Camera. The latest version of the best-selling mic pre, iRig Pre 2 gives you the same professional sound you’re used to. All while adding features such as direct monitoring, auto-switching wiring for digital cameras, and so much more.
Like most content creators and musicians, you probably rely on the professional sound quality achievable via an XLR Microphone. But when you’re doing mobile, on-the-go audio, and video creation, XLR Mics can present some challenges. Many of them require phantom power which often means you’re going to have to bring along a laptop and audio interface for the preamps and phantom power you need.
So whether you’re recording a podcast, vocals, an interview, or action sequence; iRig Pre 2 is the perfect solution for connecting an XLR Mic to your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Plus, the new auto-switching circuitry means the iRig Pre 2 will instantly adapt to work with your digital camera as well.
Above all, the iRig Pre 2 is the smallest, most portable, and best-sounding mobile mic pre you’ll find. *Requires Apple Lighting to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter for use with iOS devices.
All powered up
So you need phantom power for your condenser mic? With the iRig Pre 2, 2 x AA batteries offer true +48V Phantom power for up to 7 hours of use. Compared to many other mobile mic preamps that only offer 32V and degrade your mics performance. Then, if you need to use your favourite dynamic or ribbon mic, just turn off the phantom power and you’re good to go for up to 20 hours!
Don’t waste any takes!
Additionally, the iRig Pre 2 now features a convenient 3.5mm headphone output for direct monitoring. So you can listen back and make sure your signal is perfect before you even start recording or streaming. So it’s perfect for live streaming and video apps where you need to hop from app to app with confidence.
Then for DSLRs and Digital Cameras setup is seamless and you won’t have to dive into menus or set up alternate workarounds.
Works in more situations
What’s more, the iRig Pre 2 allows you to easily access your favourite apps while recording by using the included Velcro strip to mount your iRig to your mic stand. While you can always pick up one of the iKlips for even more secure mic stand mounting.
