Italian music gadget-makers IK Multimedia announces iRig HD 2 – the mobile guitar interface for iPhone, iPad, Mac and PC
Mobile music manufacturer, IK Multimedia has announced iRig HD 2 – an iPhone 7-ready sequel to the iRig HD digital guitar interface for iPhone, iPad, Mac and PC. The iRig HD 2 features 24-bit analog-to-digital conversion and a 96kHz sample rate, along with input gain control and a multicolour LED indicator.
iRig HD 2 includes a Lightning cable to connect directly to the iPhone and features an integrated headphone output jack with a preamp and level control. It also sports a new Amp Out jack that lets players use their iPhone, iPad, Mac or PC live on stage with a traditional guitar amplifier, without the need for special adapters – a standard 1/4-inch instrument cable is all that is required. This output is controlled by a new FX/Thru switch that lets users choose what type of signal is sent: FX sends the processed signal coming from the device, while Thru sends an unprocessed direct signal for using a tuner or in-line recording of the dry signal. iRig HD 2 also comes with a mic stand mounting bracket and Velcro strip for attachment to a mic stand on stage for live performance.
Owners will also receive free downloads of the full versions of AmpliTube 4 for Mac/PC and AmpliTube for iPhone and iPad. IK Multimedia’s iRig HD 2 is available now for pre-order for $/€99.99 (approx. £80) and will be shipping late September 2016. For more information, visit: irighd.com
