CES 2015: IK Multimedia Announces iRig 2

IK Multimedia

IK Multimedia has announced iRig 2, the sequel to their iRig guitar interface.

iRig 2 includes updated features like versatile input gain control, a ¼" amplifier output jack and Android compatibility. iRig 2 makes for a versatile tool that's great for practice sessions, live performances, jamming with friends, recording and more.

Powerful performance
The biggest update that iRig 2 brings is its new ¼" amplifier output. This augments its 1/8" headphone output by allowing musicians to use iRig 2 and their mobile device along with their favorite amplifier, without the use of an adaptor. This opens up a world of opportunities when paired with AmpliTube, IK's guitar and bass multi-effects processor. iRig 2 now lets musicians easily use AmpliTube's vast library of modeled virtual stompbox effects, amplifiers and other gear as a part of their physical rig.

iRig 2's added switch allows dual-mode operation: FX lets musicians send to the Amp ¼" output a processed signal from apps like AmpliTube. THRU sends a clean signal, letting musicians use their mobile device as a tuner, recorder or other utility, while using their classic analog rig keeping the pureness of a 100% analog signal path.

Made for both practice and performance, iRig 2 comes with a removable support that together with a velrco strip allow easily mounting iRig 2 on any mic or music stand, making iRig 2 at home on live performances as well.

Plug and play simplicity on every device
iRig 2 has been made to be compatible with the widest range of instruments and mobile devices possible. Its built-in universal 1/8" TRRS output connector provides a true plug-and-play experience on iPhone, iPod touch, Mac OS X and Android. Likewise, its 1/4" instrument input works with any guitar, bass or line-level instrument. To ensure the best sound quality, iRig 2 comes with an input gain thumbwheel that allows musicians to dial in a great setting for their setup — iRig 2 works just as well when its connecting a wailing 3 humbucker electric guitar to a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 as it does a jazzy archtop or mellow electric piano to an iPhone 6.

Android
iRig 2 is now widely compatible with Android smartphones and tablets. Its 1/8" output connector is compatible with many popular Android devices produced by manufacturers like Samsung, LG, Motorola, HTC and more — any device with 1/8" input that supports the CTIA/AHJ wiring standard works with iRig 2.

Additionally, users with Android devices that support Samsung Professional Audio can enjoy AmpliTube for Android, a special version of the popular multi-effects processor that brings a full spread of modeled virtual gear to the Android platform.

A full suite of apps
iRig 2 is ready to go right out of the box. It comes with a powerful cross-platform suite of apps and software that includes free versions of AmpliTube for iOS, Android and Mac/PC. And while iRig 2 is the ideal companion to AmpliTube, it also works with any other recording, processing, tuning or music app.

Pricing and availability
The new iRig 2 interface will be available in Q1 2015 via the IK Online Store and select music and consumer electronics retailers worldwide for $39.99/€29.99 (excl. taxes).
