Spread the love

This week I had the pleasure of reviewing yet another great product from IK Multimedia – The iRig Mic Studio.  This compact powerhouse of a microphone is a large diaphragm digital condenser that’s great for vocalist, musicians, podcasters, and just about anyone who wants to step up the quality of their recorded voice. The mic consists of a 1″ diameter back electret condenser capsule, a 133db SPL rating, a 24-bit audiophile grade A/D converter, and a built-in low noise high definition preamp.The mic also features a multicolor LED level indicator, a gain control knob, and a headphone jack so you can monitor the levels directly from the microphone.

Thanks to all the cool apps that IK Multimedia has to offer, you can utilize this microphone in a wide range of ways. The iRig comes with the VocaLive app, and you can expand your available features such as multitrack functions and effects processors with in app purchases. A few others apps (among many) where you can utilize the iRig Mic Studio is EZ voice, a sing-a-long app that allows the user to sing along with songs in their music library, and my personal favorite – The Mic Room. This app gives you the ability to model your iRig Mic after some of the most well known microphones in the recording industry.
