OVERVIEW

Plug-in and play guitar right from your iOS or Android device.

Imagine a technology that gives you the ability to practice your electric guitar and bass anytime, anyplace right on your smart phone, tablet or computer with industry respected software effects and legendary amplifier emulations. Imagine that same technology on stage with you at your next performance allowing you to tap into world-class tones and effects while playing through your favorite amplifier. Well wonder no more, now everyone can plug in their guitar or bass to enjoy killer tone on their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or select Android devices with iRig 2.

An enhancement to the original iRig, version 2 features a 1/4 output jack that lets you use iRig 2 with your amplifier as a part of your live rig without the use of an adaptor. This opens up a whole world of opportunities when paired with AmpliTube, IK's powerful guitar and bass multi-effects processor. It provides you with a vast library of meticulously modeled virtual stompbox effects, amplifiers and other gear that you can use as a part of your physical rig when you're jamming with friends, at a practice session, in the recording studio or performing live. Or plug your headphones into the included 1/8 headphone output and have the ability to practice with high-end effects and tones anywhere, anytime.

Even better is that iRig 2 features a switch that lets you select between a processed signal and a clean "thru" input signal. This means you can also use your mobile device as a tuner, recorder or other tool while preserving the purity of a 100% analog signal path.

iRig 2 is there to help you make your practice and performance sessions as easy as possible. It comes with a microphone stand mount and Velcro strip that allow you to easy attach it for performance alongside other convenient tools like IK's iKlip range of mic supports for all sizes of smartphones and tablets.

Plug and play simplicity on every device
iRig 2 has been made to be compatible with the widest range of instruments and mobile devices possible. Its built-in universal 1/8 TRRS output connector gives you a true plug-and-play experience with your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or Android device.

Likewise, its 1/4 instrument input works with your guitar, bass or any line-level instrument. Just plug into it like you would into a stompbox or amplifier. It' as simple as that.

And because volume levels vary from instrument to instrument and from device to device, iRig 2 comes equipped with an input gain control knob that lets you dial in the perfect setting for your setup. You'll get great sound quality no matter whether you have a wailing 3 humbucker electric guitar running into your Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or a jazzy archtop connected to your iPhone 6.

Your guitar tone on your Android phone (or tablet)
Got an Android smartphone or tablet? Great! iRig 2's 1/8 output connector is compatible with many popular Android devices produced by manufacturers like Samsung, LG, Motorola, HTC and more ” any device with an 1/8 input that supports the CTIA/AHJ wiring standard works with iRig 2.

Additionally, users with Android devices that support Samsung Professional Audio can enjoy AmpliTube for Android, a special version of the popular multi-effects processor that brings a full spread of meticulously modeled virtual gear to the Android platform.

Compatability
Beyond its iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac support, iRig 2 also offers complete compatibility with Samsung's new line of Samsung Professional Audio devices. That means you can play and process with the full power of AmpliTube for Samsung Pro Audio with your Galaxy Note 3, Note 4, Galaxy Edge, Galaxy S5 and Galaxy S6. Plus iRig 2 now also offers compatibility with devices running the Android 5 platform.

Comments about IK Multimedia iRig 2 Guitar Interface for iOS, Mac and Select Android Devices:

Since my new laptop doesn't have a "microphone in" port like my old computer, I thought I'd go ahead and buy this product to use for recording purposes. However, I have been extremely disappointed. The sound quality is so bad I might as well have recorded through my laptop's microphone, and I get huge amounts of feedback and background noise. It is possible to use a noise gate to help, but you still hear it when you play. At first I thought it was just me, but after searching the internet for a fix it seems it's simply a reoccurring issue .

    Comments about IK Multimedia iRig 2 Guitar Interface for iOS, Mac and Select Android Devices:

    Pretty straight forward hook up. Plugs and play. Keep in mind that this piece is the less expense in using apps that model amps and effects. You may want to consider that in your total cost. With that being said I think spending 50-75 on apps still makes for a great system. Stick it all in your case along with your IPad and forget about carrying around a large pedal board case.

          Super easy to use with Amplitube on my iphone. Much easier than dealing with "gear heads" from MF.

          Comments about IK Multimedia iRig 2 Guitar Interface for iOS, Mac and Select Android Devices:

          Awesome device and user friendly. Just get the App (Amplitube) and connect your I-Phone, Guitar and headphones and start jamming. Sometimes I connect the "I-RIG2" to my amplifier (switch the "THRU-FX button") and works great. I really recommend this to everybody.

            Comments about IK Multimedia iRig 2 Guitar Interface for iOS, Mac and Select Android Devices:

            The iRig2 works more or less as described, and it is possible to use it as an interface/controller. It's also low-priced, which is attractive. However, I was pretty surprised to find out that the free versions of Amplitude that you're entitled to with purchase were extremely limited - evidently, the iRig is sold at loss-leader prices to get you to spend as much again on sounds to make it truly useful. I found this a little underhanded. I also think the very short cable is kind of useless - so you'll probably be buying an extension ... overall, it feels a little flimsy, and I won't be surprised if it doesn't last very long.
