IK Multimedia iRig Pro

Gearank Recommendation

The iRig Pro appeared on our recommended list for iPad Audio Interfaces from May 2017 until October 2017 when it was removed due to being discontinued.


Note: This has been superseded by the IK Multimedia iRig HD 2.

IK Multimedia is known for iRig, a line of pocket-sized audio interfaces that simplified recording for many musicians. The iRig Pro with its combination of portability, flexibility and practicality became a favorite of many guitarists.

It owes its portability to its bus powered circuit, only requiring a 9V battery if you need 48V phantom power.

For flexibility, the iRig Pro is equipped with a combo jack that lets you connect microphones, guitars, other instruments and line-level sources.

The conveniently placed gain knob and LED indicator simplifies adjustments and setups.

This unit comes bundled with three cables, a lightning cable for connecting to iOS devices, a USB cable for connecting to Mac and PC, and a MIDI cable.

The IK Multimedia iRig Pro is ideal for those put mobility and portability as their top priority.
