iRig Mic for the iPhone

Would-be Pop Idol and X-Factor competitors rejoice. IK Multimedia has announced the first handheld condenser microphone for iOS devices, the iRig Mic.

Working with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, the iRig is perfect for the singer or songwriter on the move but can also be used to record speeches, performances or any other audio source.

The iRig Mic features a highly unidirectional electret-condenser microphone capsule that provides quality recording, in both close mic and long distance mic conditions, and real-time monitoring with its dual mini-jack connector. A three-level gain switch makes it instantly adjustable for any sound pressure condition — from soft speaking to loud playing. Its classic form is perfect for handheld performance, plus it can be mounted on any standard mic stand. A rugged metal body means it will stand-up to life on the road.

iRig Mic also comes with set of apps which can be downloaded from the AppStore.
– VocaLive free, IK’s new real-time effects processor app suite for the singer and vocalist.
– iRig Recorder, the new IK free audio recording app.
– AmpliTube Free, the best selling app for guitar players and songwriters.
iRig Mic also works with a multitude of other vocal and audio recording or processing apps for the iOS platform.
