Acoustic players — Now there’s finally an affordable, mobile Acoustic playing and recording system with professional sound made just for you! Inspired by a must see documentary on flamenco guitar master Paco de Lucia, iRig Acoustic is the first acoustic guitar mobile microphone/interface for acoustic players. With iRig Acoustic and the AmpliTube Acoustic app, players now have a complete professional sounding mobile system for playing live and recording designed specifically for acoustic guitars on the go.
iRig Acoustic is another IK Multimedia industry first — it’s an innovative, patent-pending, acoustic guitar microphone pickup that installs in seconds that you use to perform live and record with on an iPhone and iPad. iRig Acoustic provides professional high-quality sound, simple installation and freedom to play and record everywhere. And with the AmpliTube Acoustic companion app, you’ll have in the palm of hand the world’s first and most powerful acoustic tone sculping and refinement studio for playing anywhere, any time.
Sound quality of studio mics — only better There’s no argument that the best acoustic guitar sound reproduction comes from placing a high-end condenser studio microphone in just the right position in front of the guitar. iRig Acoustic, when used with AmpliTube Acoustic, is designed to perfectly replicate that ideal mic placement and accurately capture the full frequency range, tonal character and complex harmonics and overtones of acoustic guitars.
iRig Acoustic utilizes a MEMS microphone to deliver amazingly real acoustic sound. MEMS (MicroElectrical-Mechanical System) is the cutting edge of microphone technology — you are most likely already utilizing this technology without even knowing for many smartphones use MEMS technology mics. These microphones are very efficient and offer outstanding reliability and audio capture.
They deliver a very precise compensation and accurate flat frequency response while being very resistant to mechanical vibrations that produce unwanted sounds, thus providing a very clear, open tone. In addition, MEMS mics are very durable and stable so iRig Acoustic will deliver consistent, detailed and focused sound performance after performance.
Easy installation – clip on, plug in iRig Acoustic offers you the convenience of being easy to install (or remove) on any guitar — no modification of any instrument is required to use iRig Acoustic. It simply securely clips on to the rim of the soundhole of an acoustic instrument and you’re ready to play. Because you can easily install and remove it, you can use iRig Acoustic on all of your acoustics, even during the same set!
True mobility What truly makes iRig Acoustic unique is the fact that it delivers studio-quality sound AND allows players to freely move around on stage or in the studio without feedback or altering the sound. This is virtually impossible to do when utilizing traditional acoustic miking techniques in the studio or in live performance situations.
Steel String, Classical, Ukes, Oh My! The body of iRig Acoustic is made of soft non-marring rubber material so it prevents scratches and marks when being installed or removed from an instrument. It can be installed on any stringed instruments with a circular sound-hole — steel-string acoustics, nylon-string classicals, ukuleles and more
