"The iRig Pre 2 is a pocket-sized mic preamp and interface that lets creators, musicians and journalists, easily use XLR mics to record, perform and stream with an iPhone, iPad or DSLR camera.
"And this next-gen model delivers the same professional sound as IK's earlier mic preamp, but with the addition of direct monitoring and auto-switching wiring for use with digital cameras."
IK Multimedia has vastly improved its original preamp by introducing direct monitoring and allowing users to connect DSLR cameras. The possibilities are endless.
Easy and versatile
"The iRig Pre 2 is the easiest way to connect any type of XLR microphone to your iOS device, and the new auto-switching circuitry makes it adapt to work with the input on most digital cameras too.
"The inclusion of a 3.5mm headphone output now offers direct monitoring, allowing you to listen back and ensure that the signal is of optimum quality before the recording starts.
"If you need phantom power for condenser mics, then the two AA batteries provide true +48 phantom power for about seven hours of continuous use. For dynamic or ribbon mics, the iRig Pre 2 works for up to 20 hours."
Anywhere with pro results
"If you want to broadcast from anywhere, at any time, then the iRig Pre 2 provides the perfect bridge between microphone and iOS device for professional results."
