[NAMM] IK Multimedia announces iRig 2
IK Multimedia introduces the new version of its mobile interface for guitar, the iRig 2, which release is scheduled for Q1, 2015.
The first big news with the iRig 2 interface is that it will not only be compatible with iOS devices and Mac, but also with Android tablets and smartphones (Samsung, LG, Motorola, HTC…).
Next, IK Multimedia added a thumbwheel-type input gain control and a 1/4” amp out jack, which completes the 1/8” headphone output and allows for connecting the iRig 2 directly to a guitar amp. Thanks to a 2-way switch, you can either send your favorite AmpliTube amp and effect models to your amp (FX mode) or output the analog clean sound (Thru) and use the iRig 2 as a tuner, recorder…
The new interface will ship with a removable stand and velcro strip so that you can fix it to any kind of support.
IK Multimedia will complete the iRig 2 with a suite of apps, including AmpliTube for Mac/PC, iOS and Android. Pricing announced is 29,99€ / $39.99. More info at www.ikmultimedia.com.
