IK Multimedia has announced iRig Micro Amp, a 15W battery-powered guitar amplifier with iOS/USB interface.
IK say "Here at IK, we understand the travel responsibilities of a musician and how important it is to be able to practice and learn anywhere. Fitting everything you need into a suitcase is destined to bringing challenges... but not any more. We introduce to you the newest product in our iRig line, the iRig Micro Amp - an ultra-compact, 15W battery-powered guitar amplifier with an integrated iOS/USB interface. Say hello to your new favorite music practice and travel companion. You can even pre-order now and get free shipping."
Weighing only 2.6 lbs, iRig Micro Amp is available when you need to practice, record, perform, and make a statement wherever you go. Fully equipped with a full-range 4" driver, this little device is designed to let you do more, go further, and play harder. A setup small enough to fit in a backpack allows for playing, recording, and learning virtually anywhere.
iRig Micro Amp can be powered two ways - by AA batteries or by a 9V power supply. This gives you the freedom to rock out, record, and practice virtually anywhere you choose with no outlets needed. It also includes an auxiliary input and headphones out for silent practice, as well as a cabinet output to power external speakers for band practice or smaller gigs.
iRig Micro Amp also works with professional recording software like Logic, Pro Tools, Ableton and more. Plug into AmpliTube or your other favorite apps and software to get a world of tones in the palm of your hands.
Derived from IK's iRig HD 2 mobile guitar interface, iRig Micro Amp's iOS/USB connection lets players connect to their iPhone, iPad, Mac and PC to process their tone with IK's AmpliTube app and use their favorite practice, performance and recording apps and software. With the included AmpliTube app and software, iRig Micro Amp users can open the box and immediately jam through 10 amp and 26 stompbox models with the included AmpliTube CS app, plus 9 amp and 10 stomp models from AmpliTube 4 on Mac/PC.
