iRig PRE
The universal microphone interface for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad

iRig PRE is the ultimate solution for connecting any type of microphone – from regular stage microphones to expensive studio models – to any iPhone, iPod touch or iPad providing access to the widest range of recording applications.

iRig PRE is the first high-quality microphone preamp designed specifically for iOS devices that allows musicians to use their favorite high-quality stage or studio mics with their iOS device.

The microphone plugs directly into the standard XLR connector of iRig PRE with no need for extra cables or adapters.

Its adjustable thumbwheel gain control allows the user to easily make precise level settings. The onboard 9V battery provides the necessary voltage for phantom-powered studio condenser microphones for at least for 15 hours of continuous use.

The 3.5mm (1/8”) standard stereo headphone output allows monitoring while recording.

The lightweight housing sports a convenient cable for iOS device connection and also includes a Velcro strip slot for easy mounting on a mic stand or other stage locations.

Like all other IK Multimedia microphones, it includes 2 free apps: iRig Recorder (an easy-to-use recording/editing app) and VocaLive (an effects processing app for singers).

And like the entire range of iRig accessories, it’s highly portable thanks to its pocket-sized form factor for recording anywhere.

Rated 4 out of 4 by from Great for recording and looping on iPad 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.
