Looking for a great portable recording device? Why not use your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch? One reason might be that you don’t have a way to capture sound into the device. Well, that reason is no longer valid! IK Multimedia has introduced the iRig Mic, a handheld mic that plugs right into your i-device. The mic has a cardioid polar pattern and enough heft to feel nice and solid in your hand. It comes with a mic clip and a soft carrying pouch.
The iRig mic is equipped with a 3-position sensitivity switch and an 1/8″ stereo output jack for connecting to a mixer, monitors, or headphones for real-time monitoring. The mic comes with a selection of apps, including AmpliTube Free (guitar/bass processor/amp simulator), VocalLive Free (vocal processing/single-channel recorder/backing tracks), and iRig Recorder Free (quick and easy audio recording and processing).
The iRig Mic works great for vocal practice, grabbing quick ideas, recording on the go, songwriting sessions, and even more. Anywhere you’d use a handheld recorder, you can use the iRig Mic and your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. It’s a cool idea that comes in at a no-brainer price!
