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.

    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.

            • 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 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.

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

                  I used this to record to a computer DAW through an interface. The biggest benefit is you can move while you are playing g without concern of loosing the sweet spot as you wood with a studio mic. It works surprisingly well and rejected ambient sound much BETTER than a traditional mic but will pick up room noise so you have to your some common sense and not rustle around or talk what tracking or the sound will be picked up by the instrument and then end up being amplified by the pickup. It is a much easier solution but not quite as good sonically. I got results that were very good and found the little trade offs were worth the convienence of not being fixed in front of a microphone. The biggest drawback is the cable leading to the pickup, embarrassingly feeble. Use caution and you should be okay. The preamp and effects are very useable. I'd also like to mention that since this is now available with a dedicated pre, IK should make that pre available for purchase to people who have already shelled out money for the pickup. As it stands, you have to buy a second pickup to get the new belt back pre and IK customer service does not seem to be sympathetic to its customers in this regard- not very fair since this is only a year old and they have already introduced a live version that only differs by having a d dictated pre but that is not available to the original customers who don't want to order a second pickup also.
