IK Multimedia has continued to expand its lineup of iOS-focused accessories for the professional musician, debuting a new digital guitar interface, pedalboard MIDI controller, portable wireless studio monitors and a cable kit designed expressly for helping iOS device users connect iPad, iPhone or iPod touch devices into a studio setup.
iRig HD ($99) is an enhanced, digital version of IK Multimedia’s popular iRig guitar input. The completely new version features a built-in 24-bit DAC, preamp gain control and includes Dock Connector, Lightning Connector and USB interface cables for a variety of connectivity options. Available late Q1 2003.
iLoud ($299) is a portable 40W stereo studio monitor featuring Bluetooth technology, a rechargeable battery and a built-in digital amplifier and DSP. The iLoud is designed to provide much higher volume than comparably sized speakers, with accurate sound reproduction for portable monitoring and reference purposes. An iRig circuit is also built-in for connecting a guitar, bass, line instrument or dynamic mic. Available Q2 2013.
iLoud Mini ($149) is a smaller and more portable 12W version of the iLoud, also featuring Bluetooth connectivity but lacking the built-in iRig circuit. Available Q2 2013.
iRig BlueBoard ($99) is a foot pedal Bluetooth MIDI controller designed to work with AmpliTube or any other Core MIDI-compatible app to send program, bank and other MIDI messages. Two inputs are provided for connecting any standard expression pedal/switch. Powered by standard AAA batteries, the BlueBoard is small and durable enough to toss into a laptop bag for convenient on-the-go gigs. Available Q2 2013.
iLine ($59) is a professional hook-up cable kit focused on connecting an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch into a studio setup, with 3.5mm connectors designed for iOS device input and output and specifically molded to fit through most cases. Cables include a mono output adapter, input output extension, stereo aux cable, headphone/speaker splitter, RCA output adapter and mono output splitter, and include gold-plated connectors, copper conductors and high-density shielding. A carrying case is also included. Available February 2013.
