    Versatile With Stunning Sound for Cell Phone Movies

    I'm just scratching the surface on this great piece of equipment...

    My quest was simply to find a product that can deliver direct high quality audio while shooting video on an android cell phone. At first, my sales person was confused when I told him what I was trying to do, as he wasn't sure of potential compatibility issues with my equipment. He stayed with me, did the digging, and helped me find my solution! I can't say enough about the professionalism and helpfulness of the staff at Sweetwater.

    I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, which has a superior camera, but as with all cell phones, lousy audio. This little gizmo does the trick! I've tested it with a Neuman TLM 103 Condenser Microphone, a Blue Baby Bottle Condenser Microphone, and a Sure Beta 58A Dynamic Microphone, all with excellent results.

    By the way, I did not notice the whine described by the previous reviewer. There are a few seconds of hum when the Phantom Power switch is initially turned on or off, but to me, this is not a problem at all.

    I will be using this primarily for mobile recordings to create cell phone videos with great audio quality. This tool does much much more, and can record on just about any device. It comes with some very cool aps, and 5 connecting cables! (but no power supply)

    This is the first preamp I have purchased for this purpose, and I consider myself lucky.

    Buy this with confidence!

    Decent with strange issue

    The unit by itself or with a guitar works ok. It's a bit noisy with a guitar, but not horribly. The problem comes when you use the included condenser mic. It requires phantom power, which the interface provides. But the instant you plug in the mic, a loud, annoying whine comes in. You can hear the box making the noise physically. It also comes through the heaphones (not that it's picked up by the mic). The mic works fine if I plug it into a Focusrite interface. The iRig Duo Pro works fine if I use a different condenser mic.

    Oh, another thing. When I plug in the iRig mic, the MIDI light goes solid red. And there's no midi cables plugged in. There's plenty of power.

    Does not occur when you power it from USB off a laptop. But using the lightning cable, even with fresh batteries in it... WHINNNNNNNE.

    The interface alone costs more than I paid, so many I'll just use a dynamic mic if I go mobile. The thing is... I got it solely for mobile use. I have a nice Focusrite interface (same price, but not a kit) that is much better than this iJunk.

    I gave it a chance TWICE

    The first irig pro duo is bought did not work at all. So I returned it and got a new one. Since then I have been going back and forth with IK Multimedias support about an issue with the Phantom power not working at all. They have continue to insult my intelligence and blame the multiple devices, apps and software I've tried. I've used android, laptops, tablets, macbook and even my imac. I've done firmware updates and fresh betteries. I'm just bummed and just want to record some music. $200 down the drain. Ik multimedia and there customers service has failed. I've been patients but I'm going to post reviews where ever I can. Don't buy IK Multimedia Ijunk.
