Have you got an acoustic guitar and wish that you could easily and discretely set up for recording? You don't need to drill holes in your beloved instrument or have to reach in the soundhole to change the battery. All you need is the iRig Acoustic!
The iRig Acoustic features a pick shaped microphone attachment that clips on to the soundhole of your guitar to accurately capture the real tone and character of the instrument. You can then plug into an iOS device and use the iRig Acoustic app to tweak your sound with effects.
Monitor your sound through headphones, or send it to a mixing desk for recording or live performance. iRig acoustic features a calibration feature that automatically adjusts its settings to get the most out of your acoustic.
It's not just about acoustic guitar either. You can attach the iRig Acoustic to any stringed instrument with a soundhole. This includes Steel String acoustic, nylon-string classical, ukuleles and more.
The MEMS Microphone
iRig acoustic uses a MEMS microphone to deliver its authentic tone of your acoustic guitar. MEMS stands for MicroElectrical-Mechanical System, and it's one of the latest technologies for a microphone, already being used to great effect in smartphones.
MEMS Microphones are reliable and efficient and the perfect option for the iRig acoustic. Combined with its design to clip to a soundhole, the iRig acoustic captures an accurate picture of your guitar whilst being resistant to mechanical vibrations that would cause unwanted sound. The Mic gives a clear, clean and open tone.
Here's what IK Multimedia say about the iRig Acoustic
The sound quality of studio mics — only better
There’s no argument that the best acoustic guitar sound reproduction comes from placing a high-end condenser studio microphone in just the right position in front of the guitar. iRig Acoustic, when used with AmpliTube Acoustic, is designed to perfectly replicate that ideal mic placement and accurately capture the full frequency range, tonal character and complex harmonics and overtones of acoustic guitars. It's able to do this thanks to the combination of its uniquely designed microphone enclosure, which combines the latest MEMS (MicroElectrical-Mechanical System) microphone technology with an omnidirectional polar pattern, placement of the microphone just inside the soundhole where the output is optimal and the sound is very detailed and focused, and the “calibration” process that optimizes the guitar sound like it is being miked externally with a high-quality studio microphone. These technologies combine to capture the "complete picture" of an acoustic guitar — every vibration and sonic interaction — unlike piezo-electric pickups or magnetics that just capture the vibrations of the body top or strings. Simply put, iRig Acoustic delivers a pure and full representation of an acoustic guitar's tonal characteristics.
