The iRig Pre is a great addition to my iPad music gear collection. I use it for live looping and it does exactly what I had hoped - allows me to use my regular Shure SM58 to record. It's light and portable and allows you to monitor your recording through headphones. You can also plug in speakers or use a splitter to plug in speakers and headphones at the same time. It's a good budget option for those that can't afford one of the more expensive options.
