"iRig Pre HD, a mic interface that truly shines."

Gadget Greg reviews IK's new iRig Pre HD for Canoe.com


”The new the iRig Pre HD is certainly new and improved and ideal for anyone whether you are a musician, journalist, videographer or public speaker. Not only does it power your XLR mic and gives it phantom power when needed, the software bundle alone in terms of price and added functionality is worth more than the price of the hardware alone. It’s great for use with a PC or Mac but looking at the overall package, I think the product truly shines in the iOS environment.”


Here are some quotes from Gadget Greg's review of iRig Pre HD from Canoe.com:

 

“Some artists, stage performers and presenters often have their favorite stage or studio microphones but wish they could conveniently connect them to their computers or smart phones without having to go through a mixer or a sound system. The new iRig Pre HD digital mic interface by IK Multimedia will allow you to do that in high definition audio.”

“I found the 3.5mm headphone jack serves a number of useful functions beyond the obvious one. First, if you’re using one of the newer iPhones, like the iPhone 7, iPhone 8 or if you are lucky to get your hands on the new iPhone X, it gives you the missing standard headphone jack. Second, since the audio passes through your USB port, you can listen to your audio in true digital fashion bypassing your computer’s headphone jack. Third, you can also use the port as an AUX to output audio to external mixers or speakers.”

"And finally, one of the best things that port does is allow you to monitor in real-time what’s passing through the mic, a real bonus for podcasters or video bloggers. This way you can ensure you hear what’s being recorded or perhaps better hear someone you may be interviewing in a noisy environment.”

"The new the iRig Pre HD is certainly new and improved and ideal for anyone whether you are a musician, journalist, videographer or public speaker. It’s also a great value and I found it easy to use. Not only does it power your XLR mic and gives it phantom power when needed, the software bundle alone in terms of price and added functionality is worth more than the price of the hardware alone. It’s great for use with a PC or Mac but looking at the overall package, I think the product truly shines in the iOS environment.”
