First unveiled back in January of this year during the CES 2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, IK Multimedia have now made their new iRig 2 guitar interface that has been designed for use with IOS devices and Mac systems, available to purchase.
The iRig 2 adapter builds on the technology used in the original and is hugely popular iRig device, and has now been equipped with adjustable input gain, cross-platform compatibility and a 1/4″ amplifier output.
IK Multimedia explains a little more :
“If you loved iRig’s versatility, you’ll love iRig 2’s new adjustable gain dial, whcih 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, Mac or Samsung Professional Audio compatible Android device.
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 to your Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or a jazzy archtop to your iPhone 6.
Likewise, its 1/4” instrument input works with your guitar, bass or any line-level instrument. Just plug into it like you would into a stompbox or amplifier. It’s as simple as that.”
