IK Multimedia iRig Reviews

Poorly designed, did not work with target app and tablet

By Julio

I could not get this device to work with Yousician on my Samsung Tab S3 (model SM-T820). I was very unhappy with the companion app, AmpliTube UA. Cables stick out on three sides when using it, so the only position it can be used in is lying flat on a table. There is a volume control for the headphone jack but no input gain control for the guitar - a serious issue.

I initially HATED this device, due to the fact it was so heinously difficult to sync to my android device. had to buy new cables, as the proper ones were not in the box... then the software itself failed to sync to my hardware. then - once it was finally running, the sound is noisy as heck. now that I know how it works - I'm sure this is fine for a beginner with endless amounts of time for tech support, but I really don't have any love for this product. it does work adequately as a preamp for my DAW interface, but the noise is hard to overlook. the one thing that got it out of the trash was the octave fx. they sound pretty decent. asking extra money for the compressor fx is a bit of shank, though, IMO.

question

Do you have 30-pin cable for using in old ios devices for this?
Asked by: Anonymous
Actually, this cable is now sold by B&H: https://<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1279608-REG/ik_multimedia_ip_cable_30pmusb_in_30_pin_to_micro_usb_cable.html target= _blank >www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1279608-REG/ik_multimedia_ip_cable_30pmusb_in_30_pin_to_micro_usb_cable.html</a>The mic itself will work just fine with older 30-pin devices using this cable.

question

Will this plug directly into a wireless TX like the Sennheiser 100g3?
Asked by: Mark
The IK Multimedia iRig Acoustic Stage may be connected to a Sennheiser SK100G3 transmitter. It must be done with a special instrument cable; B&H# SECI1R.

question

Does this device require bias voltage from the pre amp? How much?
Asked by: Mark
The IK Multimedia iRig Acoustic Stage only requires 2 AA batteries for power. It is quite probable the contact microphone included in this package require some sort of power. If so, it will draw the power from the preamp unit itself. Bias voltage ranges between 1-10v.

How do i use this mic with a iPad Pro 2018 with USB C port? Thanks!!!
Asked by: Geremy
The iRig Mic Studio would use the cable below to connect to USB-C devices like the iPad Pro 11" 2018 (USB-C). Any other third party OTG compatible cable with these connections should also work. https://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/?A=usb-c-microusb-cable

question

Can this be used in combination with earphones for phone calls?
Asked by: salvatore i.
Not to be used for phone calls. The in-line connector hosts a 1/8 TRRS and a dedicated switch that allows you to connect your headphones for monitoring your recording or a second iRig Mic Lav.
