Got it to record electric drums with, works perfectly
Sycsa 11.04.2020
Using it to record my Roland TD-1 DMK, it works like a breeze and sounds great. Just connect it to my iPhone, shoot a video like normal and it records both the backing track and the drums. Recording covers has never been this easy.

To make this setup work, I also ordered the following:
- Y splitter, 3.5 mm Stereo male to 2x 3.5 mm stereo female, connected to drum module, one for the headphones, other one for the iRig.
- 2x double sided 3.5 mm stereo jack (one to connect Laptop with backing track to drum module, other one to connect iRig to drum module).
- adapter, 6. 35 mm jack male stereo to 3.5 mm jack female stereo (to connect the above cable to iRig).
- also make sure that all the cables are stereo. Got a mono cable in there at the beginning and the sound would only come out of one earbud.

Adding a little gain on the iRig so the sound comes out louder and upload directly from phone to YouTube. That's it.

Amazing for its portability and the bag of features it offers.
The app is really good, thought some features may be kind of pricey in comparison to what they offer.
It delivers everything you have every wished for regarding a mobile audio interface platform, recording, pedals, amps, cabs, fiddling with eq, everything.

So, what's wrong with it? What are the cons?
Well, I was surprised by the quality of the clean tone, really satisfied by it. Could get some decent SRV like tones out of it. The boost/gain effects were somewhat off putting, and the distortion... unusable, in my opinion.


OK but IK Multimedia strips down most of its features

I purchased this in order to use it in stand alone mode (not with a PC/DAW and I was dissapointed!
IK Multimedia offers for "free" its amplitube app for (in my case) my iPad but very quickly, I found out that the "free" version is quite limited and to unlock its full functionality you need to pay extra in buying more effects or other functionality (extend multitrack recording etc)
In terms of build, I would say that its a very nice design built with very cheap plastic! By the way, mine could be used as a shaker (for free!) as I found out that if i shake it, there are loose "things" inside that make weird rattling noises.
I wouldn't try IK Multimedia again...


A quick and easy tool
Niels2526 28.04.2019
I use the iRig to quickly hook an interface up to my computer to get some okay tones. It is nice to have access to the full Amplitube software when buying this interface, but you still have to buy the really nice effects/amps in Amplitube if you want stellar sounds. The device itself has a rather flimsy feel to it, but you can't expect a high quality casing for this price. I find it a very useful tool to quickly record ideas on the go but for more advanced studio recordings I would definitely go for a more professional and sturdy interface.
