June 29, 2017 - IK Multimedia announces that iRig Pro I/O, the pocket-sized mobile audio/MIDI interface for iPhone, iPad, Mac, PC, and Android devices, is now shipping worldwide for $/€149.99.
The successor to IK's popular iRig Pro, iRig Pro I/O raises the bar for personal mobile interfaces, with a new set of features and included software and apps that are unmatched in the category. This ultra-compact, plug-and-play, portable interface lets musicians hook up all their gear - guitars, basses, studio mics, vocal mics, keyboards, and more - to their mobile devices or computers and record 24-bit/96kHz pro-quality audio and MIDI tracks anywhere. It features a high-quality 1/8" headphone/line out with level control for use with the latest Apple devices like the iPhone 7 to connect to headphones, mixers or powered monitor speakers in an ultra-compact enclosure that fits in a pocket to take anywhere. Additionally, the iRig Pro I/O is the first interface of its kind that includes built-in device charging for extended playing sessions, using an optional power supply.
24-bit, 96kHz Professional Audio
At its core, iRig Pro I/O records 24-bit audio at sample rates of up to 96kHz and rivals traditional desktop interfaces by providing stunning audio quality anywhere. The integrated Class-A preamp features a precision input gain control to handle a wide array of input signals giving it a tremendous amount of flexibility. iRig Pro I/O features a multi-color LED indicator for visually optimizing the input gain level and monitoring the input signal to prevent clipping.
iRig Pro I/O includes MIDI input and output ports to connect to MIDI keyboards, controllers, and synths to record MIDI tracks, control virtual instruments, use control surfaces, pedalboards, outboard sound modules and more. The multi-color LEDs on iRig Pro I/O provide visual feedback of MIDI in/out activity.
Pristine Audio Quality and Real-time Monitoring
For real-time monitoring on the go with the latest iPhones, iPads, and computers, iRig Pro I/O features a high-quality 1/8" headphone/line output with level control. Users can plug in their headphones, connect to a mixer, or hook up a set of powered monitors like iLoud Micro Monitors. With any connection, the headphone/line output delivers pristine, crystal-clear audio for ultra-accurate representation of the audio program, with a quality far better than the host devices' built-in audio output.
Combo XLR/¼" Input
A Neutrik XLR/¼" combo input lets users plug in all their gear - from dynamic, condenser, or ribbon microphones to unbalanced Hi-Z or line-level instruments like guitars, basses, and more. iRig Pro I/O features a 48V phantom power switch for powering condenser or active ribbon microphones. With the adjustable, numeric input gain control, users can easily recall the gain settings for their recordings.
Battery, USB or DC Power with Device Charging
iRig Pro I/O can operate on two AA batteries (included) when connected to an iPhone/iPad, or on USB power when used with a Mac or PC. It also features a new DC in port that, when used with its dedicated power supply, charges a connected iPhone or iPad while in use for unlimited playing or recording time, on stage and in the studio. iRig Pro I/O comes with Mini-DIN to USB and Mini-DIN to Lightning cables along with two 5-pin MIDI to 2.5mm cables for connection to standard MIDI gear.
Software and Apps
iRig Pro I/O comes with more than $/€500 worth of included IK software. Users get full versions of IK's award-winning titles like AmpliTube 4, AmpliTube for iPhone and iPad, SampleTank 3 SE and T-RackS Deluxe with Mic Room.
