IK Multimedia unveils iPhone 7-ready iRig HD 2 guitar interface

The iRig HD 2 features 24-bit analog-to-digital conversion and a best-in-class 96kHz sample rate.

iRig HD 2 owners also receive free downloads of the full versions of AmpliTube 4 for Mac/PC and AmpliTube for iPhone and iPad.

IK Multimedia has announced the iRig HD 2 – the sequel to its popular iRig HD digital guitar interface for iPhone, iPad, Mac and PC.

The firm says the iPhone 7-ready iRig HD 2 raises the bar for guitarists and bassists to play, perform and record with their device at a higher level either while on the go or in their studio.

The iRig HD 2 features 24-bit analog-to-digital conversion and a best-in-class 96kHz sample rate that delivers an ultra clean, pure noiseless guitar signal to devices and computers. It features an input gain control for dialling in just the right amount of signal for playing and recording and a multicolour LED indicator for precise signal monitoring.

The device includes a Lightning cable to connect directly to an iPhone and features an integrated headphone output jack with a preamp and level control.

For newer devices like the iPhone 7 without a dedicated headphone output, this lets players use their existing headphones to monitor their playing and recording, or for just listening to music. The output features a high-quality headphone preamp with a volume control that delivers the full, rich complete audio content.

The iRig HD 2 also sports a new Amp Out jack that lets players use their iPhone, iPad, Mac or PC live on stage with a traditional guitar amplifier without the need for special adapters – a standard 1/4" instrument cable is all that is needed to make the connection.

This output is controlled by a new FX/Thru switch that lets users choose what type of signal is sent – FX sends the processed signal coming from the device, while Thru sends an unprocessed direct signal for using a tuner or in-line recording of the dry signal. iRig HD 2 also comes with a mic stand mounting bracket and Velcro strip for convenient attachment to a mic stand on stage for live performance.

iRig HD 2 owners also receive free downloads of the full versions of the ultimate guitar and bass tone and recording studio – AmpliTube 4 for Mac/PC (a $/€149.99 value) and AmpliTube for iPhone and iPad (a $/€19.99 value for each).

IK Multimedia’s iRig HD 2 is available now for pre-order from IK retailers worldwide or from the online IK store for $/€99.99. The iRig HD 2 will be available and shipping late September.
