IK Multimedia’s iRig 2 has arrived
iK MuLtiMEdia rECENtLY announced it’s shipping irig 2 (29.99 Euro), the sequel to their hugely popular guitar interface.
it improves on its predecessor by providing better sound quality and more universal compatibility - and it does this while maintaining the convenience and ease of use that made it a staple piece of equipment in the arsenal of millions of musicians around the world.
Just like its predecessor, irig 2 plugs directly into the mini jack input of a mobile device. it lets musicians send an instrument signal to apps, such as iK’s amplitube, while also providing on-board output for real-time monitoring. irig 2 now comes with gain control, which lets users precisely adjust the input gain of their instrument to match their mobile device. this means it can be customised to always provide the best sound, no matter what type of guitar, bass or line-level instrument or device is used. in other words, irig 2 sounds just as good connecting a wailing humbucker electric guitar to an iPhone 6 as it does a jazzy archtop or mellow electric piano to a Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
irig 2 now not only works with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac, but that it also supports the complete line of new Samsung Professional audiodevices. using the android version of amplitube, irig 2 is fully compatible with Note 3, Note 4, Galaxy Edge, Galaxy S5 and also the forthcoming S6.
its new 1/4” amplifier output, in addition to its traditional 1/8” headphone output, allows irig 2 to be plugged directly into a guitar amplifier or powered speakers without an adaptor. this helps to keep all cable connections tidy and organised. Visit: www.irig2.com for further information.
