NAMM 2014: IK Multimedia Announces iRig Mic HD


IK Multimedia has announced iRig Mic HD, which they describe as the first high-quality digital handheld microphone for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac.  They say that it improves on their iRig Mic, by offering pristine digital audio quality and multi-platform compatibility for all generations of iOS devices and Macs, in addition to its practical handheld form factor and other convenient features. Here's the details in IK's own words...

Top-quality sound
Thanks to a high-quality electret condenser capsule and a precise gain control, iRig Mic HD is equipped to handle a wide range of recording applications. It's perfect for professionally capturing speech, singing, acoustic instruments, guitar amps, an entire band, or any other type of audio source.

iRig Mic HD sports a 24-bit audiophile-grade A/D converter, a 44.1/96 kHz sampling rate, and a low noise/high definition pre-amp. It captures pristine audio that will suit the most demanding professional needs on the field or in the studio. Its accurate gain control and signal/level multi-colour LED indicator make it easy to set an appropriate level for any sound-pressure situation, whether it's a loud concert or a quiet, whispering vocal.

Handheld comfort and portability
Featuring sturdy metal-body construction and a comfortable handheld form factor, iRig Mic HD is ideal for interviewers, broadcasters, presenters, singers and musicians who want the highest quality recording on the go. Its standard housing can be easily mounted on any regular mic stand clip, and its design, featuring detachable cables, keeps its overall size to the minimum for the greatest portability.

iRig Mic HD supports the widest range of Apple devices via a series of three detachable cables. It's the first handheld microphone that includes a Lightning connector cable for the newest iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models, while a USB cable allows for connection to any Mac computer. A 30-pin cable for legacy iOS models is also available.
