Overview

Ultra-portable pad controller for iOS, Mac and PC.

iRig PADS is an ultra-portable MIDI pad controller for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad and Mac/PC. Smaller than an iPad and less than 1" thick, iRig PADS makes it easy to play and control virtual drum, percussion and electronic instruments, anytime and anywhere. Sixteen velocity-sensitive, retro-lit, multi-colored rubber pads, in a standard 4x4 configuration, provide the perfect solution for laying down drum and percussion parts, as well as bass, loop, and electronic instrument parts. Each pad lights up in three different colors to react to your playing or in response to messages from your apps. iRig PADS is also equipped with two assignable knobs, a pushbutton rotary encoder, two buttons and a slider, all of which are programmable. iRig PADS is MIDI class-compliant, meaning it works with hundreds of music creation apps on iOS, Mac and PC, with no drivers to install.

How it Works
iRig PADS can be connected to an iOS via the mini-DIN connector, or to a computer via the micro-USB port (when connected to an iOS can be supplied via the USB port, not to drain battery). The whole configuration of the unit is stored in 16 "Scenes", that the user can recall by pressing the SCENE button and then one of the 16 pads. The unit can send and receive MIDI data. iRig PADS sends MIDI data as MIDI notes ON/OFF and control changes to the host, and it can also receive MIDI data from the host to light up the PADS. This way any application that's MIDI compatible can give a visual feedback on the PADS color. Each PAD is illuminated by a dual color RED/GREEN LED, so the PADS backlight can be off, green, red and orange.

Connection and Controls
iRig PADS features 16 velocity-sensitive rubber pads, two assignable knobs, a pushbutton rotary encoder, two buttons and a slider. A RED LED indicates when PADS is powered on. On the back panel are located the micro-USB port (for connecting a computer) , the mini-DIN port and the expression/sustain pedal input.

Companion IK App and Software
iRig PADS comes with SampleTank FREE app for iOS, GrooveMaker 2 FREE app for iOS, and SampleTank SE software for Mac/PC.
