Last year at CES, IK Multimedia revealed its iRig Stomp as a foot switch controller for wrangling the attire’s Amplitube software for iOS. Here at NAMM though, the business has actually cast off the wired hookup for the Bluetooth-sporting iRig BlueBoard MIDI foot pedal. In addition to managing presets sans cable televisions, the device could access 4 impacts / amp modeling combinations through backlit selectors without the demand to swipe the screen of your iPhone or iPad. The gadget is AAA battery powered and there’s no power adapter or built-in power pack. It’s a little a drag that the BlueBoard isn’t rechargeable, but then again, a lot of guitar pedals and stompboxes are either battery or adapter powered. Two 1/4-inch jacks fare along for the ride in case you require to include on volume or expression pedals to the $ 99 rig that’s set to arrive in Q2.
Throughout our browse through, we also had a look at the lately revealed iRig HD guitar port. The next-gen version of the original iRig touts greater quality noise (as the name recommends) and now connects by means of 30-pin or Lightning harbor for use with a mobile gadget or through USB for laptops and such. There’s also a input level modification on the side in a form element that looks like the Apogee Jam– albeit with different connectors. Even with the aid of headphones it was hard to inform just how great the captures were thanks to the painfully loud program floor. However, in our short time with the setup it worked like an appeal for managing our weak attempts at a few Taking Back Sunday riffs. Hop down past the break for a fast trip of the couple.

I spent a lot of time at CES 2013 searching for new audio goodness and one of the cool things I found was IK Multimedia’s latest product called the iRig HD. Not “officially” announced yet and missing a release date, there were still a few demo units at their booth in the South Hall.
The iRig HD is an upgrade to the company’s previous and very popular iRig guitar interface for iOS mobile devices. Essentially, it allows you to plug your guitar or bass directly into your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch and use software to make recordings or affect the sound of your instrument. This HD version sports some new characteristics though:
- High quality input
- Low-noise, transparent high-definition preamp
- 24 bit Analog/Digital conversion
- Preamp gain control
The iRig HD seems like the next logical step for working musicians who want to have a compact setup to record their ideas, but want to capture those ideas with the highest fidelity.
It works with all existing IK Multimedia apps (like AmpliTube) but will also work with other real-time processing apps like Garageband.
Accessories, iOS has them. Not many devices can boast the same rich and dazzling array of add-ons that the iPhone or iPad enjoy — from keyboards to docks, arcade cabinets to battery packs. Today’s offering? A mobile mixer. The iRig MIX from IK Multimedia, to be precise. It’s essentially a mini DJ tool, designed to work with such iGadgets, and brought to you by the same serial audio-accessorizers behind the iRig MIC Cast and AmpliTube. If you think you’ve seen this fella before, then you likely have, as this got its first glimpse of sunlight back at CES. Now it’s here for real, auditioning for your affections as if it were on “American Idol.”
While it’s easy to dismiss some of the more ambitious accessories as as trying to push the limits of iPad / iPhone functionality to the extreme, it’s also worth remembering that accessory X isn’t always about replacing object Y. No one ever bought a USB webcam thinking it’d turn them into Spielberg, now did they? But, they might have gotten one thinking it would give their PC some skills it never had before. So it’s with this short, preemptive missive in mind that we turn on the iRig MIX, plug in and rock out. Hopefully.

The microphone in the iPhone 4S is pretty good — I have found it to capture excellent quality on all my consumer-ish recordings and videos. Of course, that is not to say it could not be improved.
When the iRig MIC Cast was announced at CES this year, I was pretty excited. I have gotten a lot of use out of the original iRig MIC and this miniaturized version seemed poised to make my travel recordings an even more portable affair.
Thankfully, it did not disappoint. The mic’s dual gain setting really extended the abilities of my iPhone for my consumer Video/Audio recordings, which is especially impressive considering the microphone is about the size of a half dollar. The new iRig also comes with a desktop stand to prop my phone while I’m recording, and I while didn’t use it too often, it could definitely come in handy for sit-down interviews and the like. Oh, and in case you felt some weird urge to do so, it works just fine when taking phone calls too.
While I am not sure what other non-iOS devices are actually supported, I was able to get it to work with things like the Korg Kaossilator 2 — a nifty bonus for sure.
What can I say, I am a fan of this little gadget in all of it’s portable glory. It’s shipping today and costs $ 39.99/€29.99. More info at www.irigmiccast.com

IK Multimedia’s VocaLive app for recording live audio hits the iTunes App Store sometime today. Coupled with the soon-to-ship iRig Mic, the two make a formidable pair for creating many kinds of audio recordings: vocal performance, field recordings, etc. Video below.
Here are the specs on each, straight from IK Multimedia’s website:
iRig Mic is the first handheld, quality condenser microphone for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad designed for all of your mobile sound needs. Now you can make professional audio and vocal recordings anywhere on your iOS device.app.
â€¢ Ideal for all vocal applications
â€¢ Great for all types of sound recording
â€¢ Quality condenser-electret unidirectional capsule
â€¢ Dual mini-jack connector
â€¢ Comes with apps for singers and songwriters
Suite of 5 dedicated real-time vocal effects plus 7 effects tailored to vocal processing that can be combined on a 3-processor vocal rig chain. Price – $ 19.99 for full version but there is a free version with limited features that you can try out first.
â€¢ Real time vocal processor + recording app
â€¢ 3-processor vocal rig chain that can be used with iRig Mic
â€¢ 12 vocal effects
â€¢ Built-in Recorder
â€¢ Includes metronome and vocal warm-up tools
â€¢ Low-latency for real time vocal processing
I got my hands on both of them and gave them a very quick run through and I have to say I really liked how they worked in tandem. A lot of utility packed into a pretty small package. The three-way toggle on the iRig Mic makes it very useful for a variety of up-close and far-away recording scenarios. Plus, since the iRig Mic works with with any iOS app (the built in video camera, Sonoma Wireworks FourTrack, etc) I think you really get your money’s worth when you shell out $ 60 for it. VocaLive’s real-time effects worked for me with low latency and sounded good. Bravo!
Also know that, at the moment, owners of AmpliTube 2 for iPhone or AmpliTube Fender for iPhone cannot add the VocaLive effects into their apps. IK Multimedia posted on their site that this feature will be offered soon in a coming update.

IK Multimedia, the same dudes and dudettes responsible for the downright hilarious iKlip, seem to be on somewhat of a hot streak. This week, the company’s hitting back with the iRig iMic, hailed as the first handheld condenser microphone for the iPhone. The image above truly explains it all — it’s designed to plug directly into your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, and so long as you’ve got a recording app of choice, you’ll be capturing your vocals in no time flat. The obvious next step is to run everything through the T-Pain app, but for those who’d rather roll more naturally, IK’s VocaLive effects processor is tossed in gratis. Pricing details are being kept under wraps for reasons unknown, but let’s be honest — you’re buying one even if it means losing two arms and a leg.

Last month, I got a chance to review IK Multimedia’s recently released iRig and AmpliTube combo for the iPhone. Not only did it sound great, the AmpliTube software looked awesome, providing access to numerous authentic effects boxes and amp combos that emulate their real-world counterparts. Now IK Multimedia is back with a version of AmpliTube for the iPad that is even more impressive.
Spacious is how I would use to describe my initial impression with Amplitube for the iPad. When considering just how perfect this version is, it’s useful to consider the iPhone alternative. Comparing with the above screen shot, the iPhone version display is really only as big as just one of the stomp boxes. Accessing the various options include hitting buttons and popup menus in an interface that while extremely functional, feels fairly cramped. With the iPad app, all of effects, amps, and control knobs are displayed on one screen, with the same attention to detail that I loved about the iPhone version.
Fortunately, nothing was lost in the app’s performance during translation to the iPad. All of the effects and amps sound just as great as the iPhone app, and this version offers a welcome fourth simultaneous effects pedal. The increased screen size does allow for a more logical layout with less button pushing to get to the sound you want. And accessing all of the knobs on the amp simultaneously is a welcome improvement when dialing in a great tone.
So how do the two stack up head to head? If you’re both an iPad and iPhone owner, its tough at this point to recommend the iPhone over the iPad version except for its extreme portability. While the iPhone app seems more suited for practicing music on the couch, I’d say that the iPad edition approaches stage readiness. If you’re a touring musician, busker with a battery powered amp, or want to lighten your load when heading to your friend’s house to jam, it’s easy to imagine using AmpliTube for the iPad live.Â If IK Multimedia were to develop a foot switch and a more rugged input/output interface that connects to the dock connector, I could see a wide adoption by musicians. The app just sounds that good.
Want a more in-depth review and hear how AmpliTube for the iPhone and iPad performs? Check out my previous review which includes an audio tour.
Wired: Same great sounding effects as the iPhone version. Logical layout that increases usability through the iPad’s large screen. Fourth effect pedal a welcome addition.
Tired: Should be a universal app so iPhone and iPad users wouldn’t have to buy twice.
