24-bit / 96kHz Recording
The pioneers in mobile music making now bring you the new iRig HD – the next generation of the immensely popular AmpliTube iRig interface. iRig HD is the first high-quality 24-bit/96kHz audio interface that fits in your pocket and connects directly to your Lightning, USB and 30-pin* devices – so no matter which iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or Mac you have, you’ll rock out in seconds.
Welcome to your high-def digital audio future
iRig HD features superior digital audio quality, and offers a premium 24-bit/96kHz A/D converter for a crystal clear digital signal that’s free from noise and crosstalk. Plus, its ultra-low-draw power-consumption circuitry eliminates the need for batteries – it's powered by your mobile device or computer. An onboard gain control allows you to dial in the perfect signal level for your instrument and apps, and a multicolor LED lets you know what's going on with your interface and signal.
iRig HD is compatible with the range of IK AmpliTube apps (the #1 app for guitar players) including AmpliTube Fender®, AmpliTube Slash and AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™, as well as any other real-time processing apps, such as Apple GarageBand, which support digital audio.
