Will this work on a MacBook? I’m going to use it for a podcast.
Asked by: Garret
No. This pre-amp works on iOS devices. If you're using an XLR microphone, you'll need an XLR to USB interface like the one referenced below. The price point is similar to the IRig Pre. There are others at higher prices, but I think the Polsen XLR-USB-48 will work for you needs. Good Luck Polsen XLR-USB-48 XLR to USB Audio Interface - BH #POXLRUSB48 • MFR #XLR-USB-48

It seems, This includes iPhone apps. Is there any app for Android that can be downloaded? Thanks!

I use the iRig for transcription with my Android phone - BUT it only works when the iRig is in the OFF position. Go figure, I don't know. The Irig was made for the iPhone, period.

Can I run the headphone jack on the irig pre to my Q802USB mixer for monitoring/recording?
Asked by: Paul
Yes, this is certainly possible. We offer the iLine series if you need an adapter. The mono output splitter is the route I would suggest. Read more here: https://www.ikmultimedia.com/iline/

question

Is the sound quality good with DSLRs ? I'd like to use this with running and gunning on-the-go with a shotgun mic and not have to sync audio in post. Thanks, Ef
Asked by: Efrem D.
The audio recorded by virtually any DSLR's built-in microphone is mediocre at best. The iRig Pre Microphone Interface is not designed to connect to cameras as it is intended for use with iOS devices like the iPhone or iPad. Consider a Shure VP83 LensHopper Shotgun Microphone B&H # SHVP83 which requires no adapters. It is a plug and play mic. An XLR shotgun powered by a battery will offer even better performance but will require a cable and an adapter. Shure VP83 LensHopper Shotgun Microphone B&H # RONTG2K2 (B&H Kit)

I have iphone se. I want to connect Galaxy GT-V wireless and connect the headphone jack from irig pre to mixer. Will this work and what xlr to 1/8 adapter will I need for the iring pre? Thank you
Asked by: Paul
This could work. Use this cable. A headphone into a LINE input may a bit "hot".
