iRig Acoustic a microphone for guitar playersNow theres finally an affordable, mobile Acoustic playing and recording system with professional sound made just for you!
Inspired by a must see documentary on flamenco guitar master Paco de Lucia, iRig Acoustic is the first acoustic guitar mobile microphone/interface for acoustic players. With iRig Acoustic and the AmpliTube Acoustic app, players now have a complete professional sounding mobile system for playing live and recording designed specifically for acoustic guitars on the go.
Sound quality of studio mics only better
Theres 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 sound hole 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.
More on MEMS
iRig Acoustic utilizes a MEMS microphone to deliver amazingly real acoustic sound. MEMS (MicroElectrical-Mechanical System) is the cutting edge of microphone technology you are most likely already utilizing this technology without even knowing for many smartphones use MEMS technology mics. These microphones are very efficient and offer outstanding reliability and audio capture. They deliver a very precise compensation and accurate flat frequency response while being very resistant to mechanical vibrations that produce unwanted sounds, thus providing a very clear, open tone.
What truly makes iRig Acoustic unique is the fact that it delivers studio-quality sound AND allows players to freely move around on stage or in the studio without feedback or altering the sound. This is virtually impossible to do when utilizing traditional acoustic miking techniques in the studio or in live performance situations.
