Top Acoustic Guitar Player records his New Album "Time" with IRig Acoustic Stage
“I have been working with the iRig Acoustic Stage for the past two months, recording my new album, called ‘Time’, which will be released very soon. All of the guitars on my new album were recorded with the iRig Acoustic Stage! I’m loving it in the studio and can’t wait to see how it will work on stage as well.”
"Certainly worthy of consideration"
"The iRig HD 2 compliments lK's series of compact audio interfaces designed to record guitar, bass guitar and line-level devices with minimum fuss on an iOS device or computer."
Dave Pensado, Grammy® winning engineer and host of "Pensado's Place"
"Audio engineers always love a great small speaker for the unique information and characteristics that inform the ear. I just got my IK Multimedia iLoud Micro Monitors. Blew me away! They are destined to be an instant classic!”
GuitarChalk's review/tutorial for IK's new acoustic mic system
Check out this tutorial/review from GuitarChalks's Bobby Kittleberger, showing you how to record acoustic guitar with iRig Acoustic Stage and his favorite DAW, GarageBand. “The iRig Acoustic Stage makes it incredibly simple, and the results sound surprisingly good. In my opinion, this process made my Taylor sound better than it usually does on other tracks I've recorded.”
"The extremely realistic sound" wins the Recommendation award
"The result is a remarkably expressive, nuanced and wonderfully playable, as well as CPU efficient, instrument that scores with an extremely realistic sound."
"Incredible-sounding instrument with so many customisable options, there's just no way to find fault in this package... and the small size means you can load it on your system drive and carry it with you, without the need for a samples drive."
Mike Dawson, Producer/Voice/Engineer of Adam Carolla Show
Now used daily on set of The Adam Carolla Show, here are the initial responses and impressions of the iLoud Micro Monitor system: "My dreams of a truly mobile studio are now a reality, thanks to IK Multimedia's iLoud Micro Monitors. At first glance, one will wonder if something so compact can deliver sound so immense...turn any hotel room into a control room. The only drawback is now I will truly never have a day off.”
Magnetic Magazine reviews IK's iLoud Micro Monitor
“IK Multimedia has done it again, providing an amazing sound solution for mobile producers. The bass that comes out these little boxes might cause some head scratching; it's impressive. I tested with hip-hop, bass music, house music, indie rock, jazz and classical and all came out sounding fantastic. Every range from the lows to the mids to the highs are covered exceptionally well for speakers of this size.”
BBoyTech Report’s iLoud Micro Monitor review with video!
Watch this video review from Corry Banks on iLoud Micro Monitor. "The iLoud Micro Monitors are solid. They travel well. The specs are more than I would have imagined for such a small package. Best of all, they pack a pretty powerful punch in a very compact package. I wasn’t necessarily prepared for the huge sound they output in the hotel room."
"The most realistic yet"
"Whether mixed and matched with other AmpliTube gear or simply used purely for Fender sounds, this is an excellent package featuring classic amps that have been at the foundation of many genres of popular music since the 1950s and are every bit as valid for today's recordings".
Eddie Kramer, legendary, award-winning producer/engineer on iLoud Micro Monitor
“We plugged them in, listened to the sound of the iLoud Micro Monitors and we were all very impressed with them (it was myself and three other engineers, it was quite a team in there). The bottom-end was fairly representative of the loudspeakers in the control room. I haven’t heard small, loudspeakers sound quite that good in a long time. Fantastic! One of the other engineers came into the room and immediately wanted his own pair."
Grammy® Winning Producer & Engineer - Marc Urselli on iLoud Micro Monitor
"I must say I am super impressed with the low-end on these tiny speakers and with their sound in general. The form factor is great on the iLoud Micro Monitors, and I must admit these are the best sounding speakers of this size I have ever tested or tried. I am looking forward to continue comparing my mixes on them.”
PhoneScoop's review of IK's dual-channel, versatile interface
“Does the iRig Pro DUO rock? Sure! Perhaps mostly importantly, the iRig Pro DUO supports two instruments at the same time, which means you can record or jam with a friend. I tested the iRig Pro DUO with two guitars, one guitar and a mic, and a keyboard and a mic and all three pairings worked perfectly.”
Electronic Musician reviews IK's new desktop reference monitor system
“When listening to the iLoud Micro Monitors, it’s clear right away that their sound surpasses that of just about any pair of desktop or bookshelf multimedia speakers you could compare them to…also has much better stereo imaging and offers greater clarity and detail through the full frequency range. iLoud Micro Monitors deliver the kind of low, vibrational rumble that you can feel.”
Harmony-Central's review of IK's new acoustic miking system
“iRig Acoustic Stage Miking System for Acoustic Guitar…if your acoustic guitar has no internal electronics, then this is a pretty close to a no-brainer purchase. iRig Acoustic Stage checks off all the boxes—tone, convenience, DSP, and ease of use—for under $100. And as a bonus, it definitely has its uses for recording.”
Bass Musician reviews IK's new mic system for acoustic sound
“The iRig Acoustic Stage from IK Multimedia helps to bring a new depth and authenticity to the sound of your acoustic bass guitar, or in my case, ukulele bass. Priced at $99 USD, the iRig Acoustic Stage is one of the best mics on the market for acoustic instruments."
"Great sound, great price"
"The device is very intuitive and can be easily used pretty much without having to think about it... Everything really does sound like an acoustic guitar is supposed to."
USA Today's "Talking Tech" host demos iRig Acoustic Stage for his FB fans
Check out this video of Jefferson Graham playing iRig Acoustic Stage, showing off the vibrant and natural sound of his guitar, playing a jazz, finger-style cover of "City of Stars" from "La La Land." And he says, "Very simply, I inserted the little guitar pick-like doodad (iRig Acoustic Stage mems mic) into the acoustic hole, and plugged it into my amp, thus eliminating the need to insert a pickup for the guitar...it sounded great."
"And the playability is incredible"
"IK's developers have nailed it once again with MODO BASS. A word comes to mind once the software is launched: impressive."
"It seems too good to be true, but MODO BASS is the real deal, bringing stunningly lifelike electric bass to the studio without a sample to be seen."
