IK Multimedia iRig2
IK Multimedia’s iRig2 is a simple guitar interface for your Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. This adapter plugs into the 1/8″ TRRS jack on your device, sending your guitar or bass signal to your favourite effects or recording app, and returning the stereo output to your headphones. This updated version of the iRig also features a 1/4″ output, so you can hook up an amp too. Another bonus Sweetwater guitarists dig is the thumbwheel on the side of the iRig 2, which lets you adjust your input volume.
Plug and play simplicity on every device
If you loved iRig’s versatility, you’ll love iRig 2’s new adjustable gain dial, which works with its built-in 1/8″ TRRS output connector to give you a true plug-and-play experience with your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Mac.
Volume levels vary from instrument to instrument and from device to device. And while the original iRig provided superior sound, it was limited in that you were unable to customize the input gain level to your particular setup. With iRig 2, you get an input gain dial that gives you the power to ensure high-quality sound in every situation. This means that you’ll be able to perform at your best no matter whether you’re connecting a wailing 3 humbucker electric guitar or a jazzy archtop to your iPhone.
Likewise, its 1/4” instrument input works with your guitar, bass or any line-level instrument. Just plug into it as you would into a stompbox or amplifier. It’s as simple as that.
A Swiss Army knife for sound
Want to take it to the stage? iRig 2’s new 1/4” output jack lets you use iRig 2 with an amplifier as a part of your live rig without the use of an adaptor.
This opens up a whole world of opportunities when paired with AmpliTube for iOS, IK’s powerful guitar and bass multi-effects processor. It provides you with a vast library of meticulously modelled virtual stompbox effects, amplifiers and other gear that you can use as a part of your physical rig when you’re jamming with friends, at a practice session, in the recording studio or performing live. Or, if you want to be discreet, plug your headphones into the included 1/8” headphone output.
Even better is that iRig2 features a switch that lets you select between a processed signal and a clean “thru” input signal. This means you can also use your mobile device as a tuner, recorder or other tools while preserving the purity of a 100% analog signal path.
iRig 2 is there to help you make your practice and performance sessions as easy as possible. It comes with a microphone stand mount and Velcro strip that allow you to easy attach it for performance alongside other convenient tools like IK’s iKlip range of mic supports for all sizes of smartphones and tablets.
For Android devices we recommend the IK Multimedia iRig-UA.
