IK Multimedia has announced the release of iRig HD 2, their new 96k "iPhone 7 ready" digital guitar interface.
iRig HD 2 is the sequel to the popular iRig HD digital guitar interface for iPhone, iPad, Mac & PC. iRig HD 2 raises the bar with 96kHz sound, an integrated headphone output, a ¼" Amplifier output, full AmpliTube versions and more.
24-bit/96kHz noiseless sound
iRig HD 2 features 24-bit analog-to-digital conversion and a 96kHz sample rate that delivers a clean, pure noiseless guitar signal to devices and computers. It features an input gain control for dialing in just the right amount of signal for playing and recording and a multicolor LED indicator for precise signal monitoring.
Integrated headphone out
iRig HD 2 also features an integrated headphone out jack with a preamp and level control. If you're upgrading to the new iPhone 7, this lets you use your existing headphones to monitor your playing and recording, or for just listening to music. The output features a high-quality headphone preamp with a volume control that delivers the full, rich complete audio content.
Amp Out with dual mode switch
iRig HD 2 also sports a new Amp Out jack that lets you use your iPhone, iPad, Mac or PC live on stage with a traditional guitar amplifier without the need for special adapters — a standard ¼" instrument cable is all you need to make the connection. This output is controlled by a new FX/Thru switch that lets you choose what type of signal is sent to the amp — FX sends the processed signal coming from the device, while Thru sends an unprocessed direct signal when you want to use an external tuner even in-line recording of the dry signal. iRig HD 2 also comes with a mic stand mounting bracket and Velcro strip for convenient attachment to a mic stand on stage for live performance.
Full AmpliTube included
With iRig HD 2, you'll also receive free downloads of the full versions of guitar and bass tone and recording studio AmpliTube 4 for Mac/PC (a $/€149.99 value) and AmpliTube for iOS (a $/€19.99 value).
With AmpliTube you'll have access to a whole new universe of gear: stompboxes, amps, cabinets, microphones, speakers, rack effects and more, all on your computer or mobile device. All versions of AmpliTube are expandable with gear from some of the top manufacturers in the industry like Fender, Orange, MESA/Boogie, Ampeg, T-Rex, Fulltone, Seymour Duncan and more.
Pricing & Availability
iRig HD 2 is available now for preorder from IK retailers worldwide or from the IK store for $/€99.99. iRig HD 2 will ship late September 2016.
Register your iRig HD 2, then download the full version of AmpliTube 4 for Mac/PC from your user area on the IK website.
