IK Multimedia Introduces Computer-Friendly iRig Pre HD

IK Multimedia has introduced the iRig Pre HD, a single-channel computer interface with a Class A mic preamplifier providing full, flat frequency response.

The IK Multimedia iRig Pro is designed for high quality voice recording. It allows users to run any microphone with Mac, Windows, iOS or Android computers. 

Ideal for journalists, podcasters, videographers and field sound recordists, the iRig Pre HD has a frequency range from 20Hz to 20kHz (+/- 1.5dB) and a 24-bit/96kHz recording resolution with built-in 48 volt phantom power. It uses two AA batteries.

The device has an integrated headphone output via a 1/8-inch jack, and a switch to allow direct monitoring to avoid latency issues. It includes high-quality internal A/D and D/A converters, LED indicators and a suite of professional audio applications. It comes with both a Lightning and USB cable.

The new iRig Pre HD, made in Italy, is available now from $99.99.
