IK Multimedia

  • ​Around this time last year, Italy's IK Multimedia unveiled its first hardware synthesizer, the UNO Synth. Now the company has added another member to the family with the launch of the UNO Drum.​
  • IK Multimedia has announced a new practice amp with an integrated digital interface. The iRig Micro Amp allows bedroom guitarists or street performers to tap into a modeling universe of digital tone, either plugged into the mains or running on battery power.
  • There are a number of devices available that allow musicians to connect a guitar to a computer. But IK Multimedia says its Axe I/O is the high-end audio interface that guitar and bass players have been waiting for.
  • IK Multimedia has unveiled the UNO Synth, its first hardware synthesizer. The monophonic synth is battery-powered for music creation on the go, invites novice sonic scientists with 100 ready-to-go presets and promises capable musicians an inexpensive "real analog synth with professional sound."
  • ​IK Multimedia has updated its all-in-one audio and MIDI interface from 2013, giving the iRig Pro I/O volume control for headphone monitoring, MIDI thru for flexible routing options and the ability to charge connected devices.​
  • IK Multimedia's new iRig Acoustic Stage package marries a pick-shaped MEMS microphone with a battery-powered box rocking a preamp and digital signal processing to make any acoustic guitar sound just like it would if it was captured in a traditional recording studio.
  • Instrument interface pioneers IK Multimedia have announced a replacement for 2013's iRig HD. The iRig HD 2 digital guitar/bass interface for iPhone, iPad, Mac and PC boasts improved sound quality, more ins and outs, and a wet/dry signal switch.
  • There's no doubt that tablets and smartphones have made multi-track audio recording on the run easier than ever. But connecting instruments to iPads and iPhones has never been quite as simple. The iRig Pro Duo helps make that final connection and allows musicians to truly record on the run.
  • At this year's NAMM show, IK Multimedia has added what's said to be "the smallest studio reference monitoring system in the world" to its iLoud speaker range. The iLoud Micro Monitors are reported to deliver stunning clear and accurate audio.
  • IK Multimedia is taking aim at dreadnought picker types with the iRig Acoustic, which is billed as the first acoustic guitar mobile microphone/interface specifically made for acoustic guitars and ukuleles, and one that's claimed to rival pro-grade studio microphones.
  • IK Multimedia has announced the iRig 2, a new guitar interface that includes an output to a powered amplifier, an input gain thumbwheel and is compatible with many modern Android smart devices.
  • IK Multimedia has released its iRig Pads MIDI groove controller. The lightweight device is smaller than an iPad, yet manages to squeeze in 16 backlit rubber pads, two MIDI knobs, two buttons, one slider and a pushbutton rotary encoder. The iRig Pads also ships with the SampleTank free suite.
