Earlier this week IK Multimedia announced a new addition to their iRig line-up, revealing the iRig Acoustic, which is the world’s first acoustic guitar microphone/ interface for mobile that is made specifically for use with acoustic guitars.
Using a compact patent-pending clip-on design, the new iRig will work with the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac and Android using th enew AmpliTude Acoustic app, with advanced miniature microphone technology to record your music. IK Multimedia say this provides a rich quality that beats piezo and magnetic pickups, whilst rivaling professional-grade studio microphones.
And its simply to use, just clip it to the rim of the guitar’s sound hole and you are done.
You can also use it’s line-out and monitoring ports for performing live and recording.
The app has also been designed with acoustic players in mind, with multiple amplifiers, stompboxes and other features that make it great for on the go jamming. The iRig Acoustic will include this app for free, but you will be able to add to it with in-app purchases.
The iRig Acoustic is now available from the IK online store and from various music instrument retailers for $49.99/ €49.99.
