IK Multimedia Introduces the iRig HD Guitar Interface


It is hard to believe it has been more than two and a half years since Travis reviewed the original iRig here at Gear Diary. In that time iRig has become THE standard for interfacing your guitar with your iOS device regardless of the apps you were using. Well, now at CES IK Multimedia has taken the next step in iRig development, introducing the iRig HD that goes beyond simple Lightning Connector compatibility to deliver a true high-def experience. “iRig HD features superior digital audio quality, and offers a premium 24-bit A/D converter for a crystal clear digital signal that’s free from noise and crosstalk.”


Connecting the iRig HD to your 30-pin or Lightning connected iPad or iPhone is trivial, as is using a USB connection to hook into your Mac or PC. Here are a summary of features:

  • High-quality instrument-level 1/4” Hi-Z input jack
  • Detachable cables for Lightning, 30 pin and USB connector compatibility
  • Preamp gain control
  • High-quality low-noise, high-definition preamp
  • High-quality 24-bit A/D conversion
  • Powered by the iOS device or USB
  • Also works with line level signals from synthesizers, keyboards and mixers
  • Ultra-compact and lightweight
  • Comes with AmpliTube FREE apps (free download on App Store)
