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!
Asked by: PABLO
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.
I have not yet used the iRig Pre attached to a DSLR for motion recording, so I can't say. The sound quality is very good, used mostly for wireless lav-mics in a Trade Show environment for longer shots of a spokesperson. There is usually a lot of ambient noise around and shooting on my iPad Mini - with a wireless Lav mic attached to the spokesperson and into the mic - produced very good sound quality.

This could work. Use this cable. A headphone into a LINE input may a bit "hot".
