The first Microphone for your iPhone?!

IK Multimedia’s new iRig Mic is the new sister product to the original iRig audio interface, and serves as a handheld condenser mic that can be plugged directly into your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.

The iRig Mic features a highly unidirectional condenser-electret capsule, with a three-level gain switch making it suitable for recording material at a range of different volumes.

It connects to your iOS device’s headphone output, with the dual mini-jack connector enabling you to plug in headphones at the same time so that they can be used for monitoring.

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.

iRig Mic is ideal for the singer, vocalist and songwriter on the move, but also perfect for recording speeches, instruments, performances or other sound sources in the studio, on stage or in the field.

The iRig Mic features a highly unidirectional condenser-electret microphone capsule that provides quality recording in both close mic and long distance mic conditions, and provides real time monitoring with its dual mini-jack connector design.

Its familiar form is perfect for handheld performance, plus it allows you to mount it on any mic stand leaving your device free for operating your favorite app. Its rugged metal body is road-ready for the mobile musician.

iRig Mic also comes* with VocaLive free, IK’s new real time effects processor suite for the singer and vocalist, and AmpliTube free for guitar players and songwriters. iRig Mic also works with a multitude of other vocal and audio processing apps for the iOS platform.
