Introducing iRig Mic Studio, IK Multimedia’s ultra-portable large-diaphragm digital condenser microphone for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, PC and Android. It packs a 1” diameter condenser capsule into an ultra-compact enclosure that can be used to make professional-quality recordings anywhere. Great for musicians, vocalists, home producers, podcasters, broadcasters, voice-over artists and more, it puts the superior power of a large-diaphragm microphone into the palm of your hand.
What’s remarkable about iRig Mic Studio is that it offers its truly amazing recording quality in an enclosure that’s smaller than an iPhone. It features a large 1” diameter back electret condenser capsule, a 24-bit audiophile-grade A/D converter (with 44.1/48 kHz sample rate) and a built-in low-noise high-definition preamp. These, combined with its 133dB SPL rating, allow for optimal recording at any sound pressure level — it can capture everything from the subtle and nuanced dynamics of the human voice to the full-on bombast of an amplified electric guitar, and everything in between.
To ensure you’ll always record at your best, iRig Mic Studio comes with a full set of flexible controls: It has a gain control knob and a multicolor LED level indicator. It also includes a headphone output with its own level control for onboard monitoring directly from iRig Mic Studio itself. And, for better positioning while recording, iRig Mic Studio comes with a sturdy and portable tabletop tripod stand.
All this is to say that iRig Mic Studio is equipped with everything you need to capture the highest quality sound no matter whether you’re at home in the studio or recording while on the go.
