The new iRig Pro I/O mobile audio/MIDI interface from IK Multimedia.

IK Multimedia has announced iRig Pro I/O, the successor to the iRig Pro personal mobile audio/MIDI interface for iPhone, iPad, Mac, PC and Android devices.

iRig Pro I/O is a “plug and play” interface for connecting gear (guitars, basses, mics, keyboards and more) to mobile devices or computers and recording 24-bit/96 kHz audio as well as MIDI tracks.

It includes a 1/8-inch headphone/line out with level control for use with the latest Apple devices like the iPhone 7 to connect to headphones, mixers, or powered monitor loudspeakers in a compact enclosure that fits in a pocket.

The preamp has a marked precision input gain control to adapt to a wide array of input signals. A multi-color LED indicator is supplied for visually optimizing the input gain level and monitoring of the input signal to prevent clipping.

MIDI input and output ports add connectivity with MIDI keyboards, controllers, synths, sound modules and more. Multi-color LEDs provide a visual of MIDI in/out activity.

A Neutrik XLR/1/4-inch combo input accommodates a wide range of gear and line level instruments. Switchable 48-volt phantom power is available for powering condenser or active ribbon microphones. The adjustable input gain control provides easy recall and replication of input gain settings for instruments, with the multi-color LED supplying a visual monitor of the input signal gain setting.

iRig Pro I/O can operate with its onboard 2 x AA batteries (included) when connected to an iPhone/iPad, or on USB power when used with a Mac or PC. It also incorporates a new DC in port that, when used with its dedicated power supply unit, will charge a connected iPhone or iPad while in use for unlimited playing or recording time.

Also included is $/€543 MSRP worth of IK software, including titles such as AmpliTube 4, AmpliTube for iPhone and iPad, SampleTank 3 SE and T-RackS Deluxe with Mic Room.

iRig Pro I/O will be available in April 2017, from the IK Multimedia online store and IK authorized dealers worldwide for $/€149.99. Also supplied are Mini-DIN to USB and Mini-DIN to Lightning cables, as well as two 5-Pin MIDI to 2.5 mm cables for connection to standard MIDI gear.
