IK Multimedia, known and feared for its sprawling product names, is showing the iRig Pro Duo I/O 2-Channel Audio / MIDI Interface at NAMM 2020. Anyone who knows IK Multimedia also knows the iRig series celebrating its 10th anniversary.
The IKMultimedia iRig Pro Duo I/O is a popular mobile audio / MIDI interface, which can also be operated on iOS and Android devices. With the IK Multimedia iRig Pro Duo I/O 2-Channel device is now also available in more extensive equipment.
Connected with USB-C, the iRig Pro Duo I/O enables through its two combo sockets (XLR and TRS) to record microphone signals (also with phantom power), line and instrument signals. The gain of the two Class A preamps can be set individually, and the loading can also be done with different signal types. For example with a Hi-Z signal from a guitar and the microphone signal from the microphone in front of the speaker. A sensible, latency-free monitoring option and a headphone out are necessary and included. Of course, the IK Multimedia iRig Pro I/O also has a practical MIDI I/O.
The iRig Pro Duo I/O 2-Channel is operated either by USB power, optional power supply or with a pair of AA batteries. It features two XLR-1/4″ combo inputs for connecting microphones or instruments, selectable 48V phantom power, and the ability to accommodate your favorite MIDI equipment such as a keyboard, synth, or drum machine.
The 1/4″ monitor outputs and 3.5mm headphone output have independent level controls for optimal monitoring through speakers and headphones. A switch on the right side of the device allows you to listen to the direct input signal without latency or the processed return signal from your device.
