OVERVIEW

The best-selling guitar interface goes acoustic.

iRig Acoustic is a revolutionary new microphone solution that easily connects your acoustic guitar to an iPhone, iPad, Android device or Mac with stunningly professional sound quality. 

The size of a large plectrum, iRig Acoustic easily clips inside the sound hole of any acoustic guitar, yet delivers sound quality that rivals complex, expensive recording setups for a fraction of the price. 

iRig Acoustic captures the full range and timbre of your instrument in the most life-like manner. Unlike magnetic or piezo solutions, iRig Acoustic doesn't color the sound of your instrument, and offers extended frequency response and low-noise circuitry throughout. 

The output of iRig Acoustic connects directly to your iPhone, iPad, Android device, or Mac, and offers a 1/8" headphone output for monitoring. No batteries or power is required, making it an incredibly simple, compact way to perform or record anywhere. 

iRig Acoustic is designed to connect to IK's new AmpliTube Acoustic app, packed with tons of killer effects and features designed for acoustic guitarists. It's also fully compliant with dozens of other top apps, from Apple's GarageBand to Samsung's SoundCamp. 

With a revolutionary design, aggressive price point and killer sound quality, iRig Acoustic lets acoustic players join the mobile music revolution.

FEATURES
  • Ultra-compact clip-on microphone for acoustic guitar
  • Connects directly to iOS, Android and Mac
  • Extended frequency response (15 Hkz - 20 kHz)
  • Fits nearly any acoustic instrument
  • Integrated headphone output

      I have added the iRig Acoustic to my iPad Pro IOS DAW Interfaces for my Seagull Acoustic due to its incredible integration with the AmpliTube Acoustic Guitar processor App. Well Done!!

      Best Uses

        Comments about IK Multimedia iRig Acoustic - Microphone for Acoustic Guitars:

        I post videos on YouTube primarily for my grandsons and others who want to learn finger style guitar from me. Since I travel, I thought this would help give me good sound without hauling around a bunch of equipment. It doesn't. Compared to just using the mic in the iPhone, this strips out all the high tones and makes the recording muddy and imprecise. I've experimented with moving it so that none of it touches a pick guard and that doesn't help. There is an app you can buy to play with the sound but that is rather confusing, especially if you are wanting to post YouTube videos and not just MP3 files. I give it two stars for the idea of it but I am quite disappointed so far.

        Pros

          Cons

          • Check for compatibility on android before buying
          • No luck using on Android.
          • Sound hole is not optimal mic placement. Boomy
          • Uses TRRS Apple made up 4 iPhone. Not standard

          Best Uses

          • Have to roll off low end. Mic is in sound hole

          Comments about IK Multimedia iRig Acoustic - Microphone for Acoustic Guitars:

          If you have the hypePhone (iPhone/iPad) or Mac this will probably work great. Android, not so much! Mic sits in soundhole which is a bad place for a mic. It's very boomy so you'll have to roll off a ton of low end.

          Comments about IK Multimedia iRig Acoustic - Microphone for Acoustic Guitars:

          I tried this product for a couple hours with my Cordoba C12 cedar top classical guitar. There is no padding on the part of the pickup that attaches to the guitar, which concerned me since cedar is a soft wood and easy to scratch/dent. The product functioned fine, but I was unable to achieve a good sound. High notes sounded good, but the lower notes were muddy. I downloaded the free version of irig acoustic and was able to get a decent sound when I pulled the bass way down in the EQ. Be aware that the full version of irig acoustic is not cheap in the App Store. If the full version of the app came free with the purchase of the pickup I probably would have kept the pickup and not returned it to Musicians Friend.

            For the price this is a great device. It worked very well and quick and easy to set up when I played at my church last night. Must be run thru the ap on the phone or other device to use the line out from the headphone jack. Ran the line out into the sound system and folks commented that they heard the guitar better and sounded better than ever before. Very pleased with the i rig acoustic! Worked just as I wanted it to.

                The sound quality is quite good and I would have rated this a strong 4, maybe 5 stars except that the cord seems very flimsy. I have concerns about the durability of the device.
