iRig Pro Quattro I/O

  • Lots of connection formats.
  • All controls are on the device.
  • Compact and battery-powered.
  • Built-in mic.
  • Can solve a range of problems.

The versatility again shines as you can just plug the box into your phone and start recording using the in-built mic without any other hubs, adaptors or power sources.

"It's a MEMS-type microphone with a good frequency response and relatively low noise. It's designed to capture the room rather than a close-up vocal performance and does a good job of that.

The Quattro integrates nicely with iOS and offers a very impressive array of connections, including MIDI, and the full advantage of battery powering.

"You can make use of the included Cubasis LE to give you a mobile multitrack recording solution out of the box. Plug in four microphones and you're off, or a pair of mics and some guitars, or just sit the device in the room and play.

"The features of the apps you get are really good. The mic modelling in Mic Room and VocaLive is outstanding and takes the built-in mic to some characterful levels

 Whichever way I plugged things in, the Quattro I/O gave some good recordings. The analogue limiter, which is just a switch on the front, showed its usefulness while I was testing lots of different things in different places.

"With batteries and a phone, you have a mobile studio or a live-streaming setup. It could mix multi-channel audio into your camera or serve as a mini PA mixer. If you kept one in your bag, then you'd always have something that would work in any situation."
