IK Multimedia iRig Pre 2 Ultracompact XLR Microphone Interface

Equipped with the IK Multimedia iRig Pre 2 Ultracompact XLR Microphone Interface, you can easily record your favorite dynamic or condenser microphone to a smartphone, tablet, camera, or computer while keeping your setup simple and small. The included AA batteries power the iRig Pre 2 for up to 20 hours, so you can knock out podcasts, vocal parts, interviews, or instrument performances no matter where you are.

Simply hook up any microphone to the XLR input (engage phantom power for condenser mics) and connect the 3.5mm TRRS mini plug on the attached 15.7" cable to your mobile device, DSLR camera, or laptop. The iRig Pre 2's auto-sensing output circuit ensures compatibility with TRRS headset ports and TRS mic inputs. Plus, the level-adjustable headphone out and switchable direct monitoring allow convenient real-time audio checks. Other enhancements over the original iRig Pre include a soft-touch exterior, numbered gain and headphone level dials, and larger LED indicators.

iRig Pre 2 vs iRig Pre
  • iRig Pre 2's new auto-sensing output circuit lets it connect to a mobile device's TRRS headset jack or to a DSLR camera's TRS mic input jack
  • iRig Pre 2 adds a stylish, soft-touch finish
  • Both the adjustable input gain and headphone output now offer numbered level controls for precise control
  • A new direct monitor switch lets you monitor the input signal directly, avoiding latency and letting you monitor in real time with any app or device
  • Two AA batteries (included) take the place of the previous 9V, providing power to the iRig Pre 2 as well as enabling +48V phantom power for condenser microphones
All Powered Up
iRig Pre 2's two AA batteries provide true +48V phantom power for around seven hours of continuous use—many other mobile micpreamps only offer 32V, degrading your mic's performance

To use your favorite dynamic or ribbon mic, simply turn off the phantom power, and you're good to go for even longer—up to 20 hours.

Don't Waste a Take
A time-saving 3.5mm headphone output now offers direct monitoring, so you can listen to ensure the signal is perfect before you start recording or streaming. It's ideal for today's popular livestreaming and video recording apps, so you can hop from app to app with confidence.

For DSLRs and digital cameras, it makes set up a snap without needing to dive into menus or set up alternate workarounds to monitor the sound.

Works in More Situations
You can easily access your favorite apps while recording or performing, by mounting the iRig Pre 2 to your mic stand or other convenient stage location using the included hook-and-loop strip slot. For secure mic stand mounting for your connected smartphone or tablet, check out the IK Multimedia iKlip series (available separately), which offers a choice of flexible mounting options for a variety of scenarios.
Ready for Recording
Even if you’re new to mobile audio and video creation, you can get started right away by simply downloading two free IK Multimedia apps from the App store or Google Play.

Kopul Studio Elite 4000 Series Neutrik XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (10', Black)

The Kopul Studio Elite 4000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (10') is a studio-quality cable for connecting mics to mixers, preamps, audio interfaces, and recorders or to be used in any other application where XLR connectivity is required. The cable is engineered to be both quiet and durable, and is well suited for critical recording and broadcast situations.

Studio Elite 4000 Series cables are made from 24 AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. A 98% braided outer shield makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

98% braided shield offers protection from EMI and RFI noise.
Twin-conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables, and also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core.
24 AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity.
Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise.
All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection.
Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity.
Cast zinc shell and chuck style strain relief.

I already have a Tascam DR-10L Pro. Is there an adaptor that will allow me to use this (or another ENG mic) without a new rec?
Asked by: dominic
An adapter cable such as BH #RECASEK100M could technically be used to connect a dynamic ENG mic to the Tascam DR-10L, but this would not be recommended. Dynamic microphones will need more gain than the DR-10L is designed to provide, and results may not be as desired.

question

Unsure about which cable to purchase as microphone will be plugged into Azden FMX-DSLR mixer. Do I need the Kopul or the Hosa?
Asked by: Steve C.
Look like the FMX-DSLR mix has normal XRL connectors so any normal mic cable (XLR male on one end and female on the other) will work (not brand specific). I use the Hosa cables as my house cable brand but any brand should work as long as it is a high-quality cable (life is too short for cheap cables ;-). I use both the RE50/B mic as well as a Heil PR-40 with my DSLR but use another mixer brand.Bill

Is this ideal for a podcast? Or is there a better handheld option?
Asked by: Kelly
I have owned this mic for years and love it. The RE-50 is excellent for field interviews, sort of a industrial-grade answer to recording under any conditions. It could work in a pinch for podcasting, but it's not ideal for that purpose, especially if you move into video, because it requires staying on top of the microphone. The usual suspects for podcast / broadcast are the Shure SM7B, Electrovoice RE-20 and RE-27, and Audio-Technica BP40. But if you like the hand-held form factor, check out the Sennheiser e935 sounds great, price is right, has great off-axis rejection, and doesn't require a Cloudlifter or Fethead. Stick it on a desk stand and you're done ;-) You don't want a condenser mic for podcast unless you're in an acoustically treated studio, picks up way too much background noise. Disaster, don't do it. A dynamic mic with native attenuation of room sounds is the way to go.
