The iRig Mic Studio has been designed to provide the best possible recording quality. It features a one-inch diameter back electret condenser capsule, a 24-bit audiophile-grade A/D converter (with 44.1/48 kHz sample rate) and a built-in low-noise high-definition preamp. These, combined with its 133dB SPL rating, allow for optimal audio capture at any sound pressure level. It can capture everything from the subtle and nuanced dynamics of the human voice to the full-on bombast of an amplified electric guitar, and everything in between.
To assist its high-end components, iRig Mic Studio also sports a set of monitoring and level control features. It comes with a gain control knob and a multicolor LED level indicator. It also includes a headphone output with its own level control for monitoring directly from the iRig Mic Studio itself. For better positioning while recording, iRig Mic Studio comes with a portable tabletop tripod stand.
The iRig Mic Studio is compatible with nearly every popular mobile and desktop platform. It comes with a female micro-USB port and an assortment of cables: Micro-USB to Lightning for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch; micro-USB to micro-USB OTG for Android (requires either an Android 5 or Samsung Professional Audio device); and micro-USB to USB for Mac and PC.
