Acoustic players — now there’s finally an affordable, mobile Acoustic playing and recording system with professional sound made just for you: introducing the IK Multimedia iRig Acoustic!Inspired by a must see documentary on flamenco guitar master Paco de Lucia, iRig Acoustic is the first acoustic guitar mobile microphone/interface for acoustic players. With iRig Acoustic and the AmpliTube Acoustic app, players now have a complete professional sounding mobile system for playing live and recording designed specifically for acoustic guitars on the go.
iRig Acoustic is another IK Multimedia industry first — it’s an innovative, patent-pending, acoustic guitar microphone pickup that installs in seconds that you use to perform live and record with on an iPhone, iPad, Mac and Android. iRig Acoustic provides professional high-quality sound, simple installation and freedom to play and record everywhere.
And with the AmpliTube Acoustic companion app, you’ll have in the palm of hand the world’s first and most powerful acoustic tone sculping and refinement studio for playing anywhere, any time.
Sound quality of studio mics — only better!
There’s no argument that the best acoustic guitar sound reproduction comes from placing a high-end condenser studio microphone in just the right position in front of the guitar. iRig Acoustic, when used with AmpliTube Acoustic, is designed to perfectly replicate that ideal mic placement and accurately capture the full frequency range, tonal character and complex harmonics and overtones of acoustic guitars.
It's able to do this thanks to the combination of its uniquely designed microphone enclosure, which combines the latest MEMS (MicroElectrical-Mechanical System) microphone technology with an omnidirectional polar pattern, placement of the microphone just inside the sound hole where the output is optimal and the sound is very detailed and focused, and the “calibration” process that optimizes the guitar sound like it is being miked externally with a high quality studio microphone.
These technologies combine to capture the "complete picture" of an acoustic guitar — every vibration and sonic interaction — unlike piezo-electric pickups or magnetics that just capture the vibrations of the body top or strings. Simply put, iRig Acoustic delivers a pure and full representation of an acoustic guitar's tonal characteristics.
Steel String, Classical, Ukes, Oh My!
The body of iRig Acoustic is made of soft non-marring rubber material so it prevents scratches and marks when being installed or removed from an instrument. It can be installed on any stringed instruments with a circular sound-hole — steel-string acoustics, nylon-string classicals, ukuleles and more.
AmpliTube Acoustic — Your complete mobile acoustic tone studio
iRig Acoustic comes with AmpliTube Acoustic, the new acoustic-specific AmpliTube app designed for processing and recording acoustic guitar and ukuleles.
As an acoustic tone studio, AmpliTube Acoustic features top-of-the-line emulations of popular acoustic amplifiers — 2 solid state amps and one tube amp, all with their own built-in effects sections — and stompbox effects, including a live performance “Feed Kill” feedback eliminator (hey, it happens), an acoustic compressor, graphic EQ and Parametric EQ; a 12-String emulator, a “Bass Maker” octave pedal, plus a “Body Modeler” that converts the sound of your guitar into another style of guitar. Need a parlor guitar sound for a specific song? No problem — just use the body modeler!
AmpliTube Acoustic also features all the goodies that make AmpliTube the world’s most popular mobile guitar and bass tone studios — a 4-track looper, 8-track recorder/DAW, speed trainer and UltraTuner, the world’s most accurate digital tuner. AmpliTube Acoustic is your new complete mobile Acoustic tone studio!

- Sounds Almost Great
- Distorts To Easily
Comments about Ik Multimedia Irig Acoustic Microphone/Interface For Ios Devices:
I'm a professional guitar player and I'm continually looikng for the Holy Grail for amplfying Acoustic Guitars. This is the first time I felt there was hope after a couple minutes of playing..............then I dug in. Oh well, I had hope. The collapsing of the signal into distortion was heartbreaking. This was after several setups of Calibration and tweaking input and output levels as well as Amp settings. Nothing helped. It's a cryin shame because when it isn't distorting it sounds pretty darn great. It really chewed it on Flamenco Guitar. Rasqueados and strong Picados crumbled into distorted glops of dissapointment. I hope IK's support has something up it's sleeve for a fix. But for now, "Not Ready For Primetime"!
