What do I need to get started streaming?

Any iRig designed to send audio signal can be used to stream. Keep in mind however, most iRig units are designed for a mono input. For example, the iRig HD X, iRig 2, iRig HD 2, iRig Pro I/O, iRig Pre HD and iRig Pre.

Note: When using a mono iRig device, do not send a stereo signal into the unit. Due to the wiring of the input of mono devices, sending a stereo signal can cause issues with sound.

If you are streaming stereo audio from a mixer, DJ set-up, or anything with line-level output the iRig Stream series is the best option for your streams. This will allow for your signal to be sent into it's RCA input and monitored through it's onboard 3.5mm headphone port. This headphone port will also allow a headset (CTIA/AHJ wiring standard) for narrating your performances.

For sending two balanced sources into iOS, like two XLR cables, check out iRig Pro Duo I/O. This powerful tool will allows for two combo jack input (XLR & 1/4") for almost any kind of input to be sent to Mac/PC, iOS, or Android.

If you're looking to simply stream your voice and no other signal, check out our iRig Mic HD 2 or iRig Mic Studio. These digital USB microphones will send a crystal clear audio signal into your iOS, Mac/PC or Android device. If you use your own microphone, but just need a way to send your signal into your your iOS, Mac/PC, or Android device check out the iRig Pre HD.

We've also got plenty of other options like iRig Stream Mic Pro for those looking to do a little bit of both. Make sure to take a look at all of the different options.
