Macworld is "mightily impressed" by iRig Acoustic

"Great range of sounds, stunning graphics, clever Feedback Killer"


"The clean acoustic sounds are true and clear, and there are enough tonal customisation possibilities to satisfy even the most feature-hungry player. Throw in all the extra goodies and I have an extremely comprehensive acoustic guitar setup."


MacWorld has reviewed iRig Acoustic in their Australian edition and they were "mightily impressed" by it.

Here are some key comments from their expert reviewer, Keith White.

"And I have been able to resurrect my old Takamine acoustic guitar, which has been asleep under my bed for many years. It’s a great instrument but needed a 9V battery, which was very fiddly to insert inside the sound hole and often died when I least needed it. Now with iRig Acoustic, my Takamine is born again."

"Thanks to its long hibernation my guitar is way out of tune. Not a problem. I soon have it back to concert pitch with the inbuilt UltraTuner, which by the way is the quickest and most accurate in-app tuner I have ever used.Another really good feature is the Feed Kill pedal. I activate this, tap the ‘detect feedback’ button and up to four feedback frequencies are eliminated, which pretty well takes care of the greatest weakness of many acoustic guitar microphones."

"After little more than an hour with the Acoustic set up I’m more than happy to give it the big tick. The clean acoustic sounds are true and clear, and there are enough tonal customisation possibilities to satisfy even the most feature-hungry player. The stunningly realistic interface graphics complement the array of professional sounds I can get. Throw in all the extra goodies and I have an extremely comprehensive acoustic guitar setup. The IK Multimedia website has more details for the technically minded."

"As a postscript I ran my Fender Strat electric guitar into Amplitube Acoustic using my iRig Pro interface. I was quickly able to create some very usable acoustic-sounding presets, which I’m certainly going to use in live gigs. Well worth a try."


Pros
