As a musician that is constantly on the go, I know that inspiration can strike at any moment. I have found that the wonderful products made by IK Multimedia are incredibly useful and easy to use when inspiration strikes. I was very excited to get the opportunity to try out this new device. And it’s no surprise that once again, they have created a very useful tool for acoustic guitarists with the introduction of the iRig Acoustic Stage.
The iRig Acoustic Stage is a revolutionary digital microphone system made for any type of acoustic guitar, including steel string guitars, nylon string guitars, and even ukuleles. The device produces studio quality acoustic guitar sounds that can be used for live shows or high level home recordings. It contains 6 selectable tone presets and a select switch for nylon guitars.
The microphone can be easily clipped to the instrument’s sound hole and can also be connected to an audio interface or the USB audio output for a 32 bit AD/DA conversion signal that is compatible with MAC, PC or iOS devices.
While using the iRig Acoustic Stage, you can blend the pick up of your own instrument with the output of the device. Simply use the Phase and Blend controls to dial in your favorite tone. The preamp can be used with an external amp or mixing board to offer more options during studio or live performances. The unit also comes with a belt buckle/guitar strap clip for convenience during recordings and live performances.
The iRig Acoustic Stage features:
– High precision clip on microphone.
– Advanced DSP with EQ and personal calibration mode.
– Instant feedback suppression
– Powered by 2 AA batteries providing 15hrs of use.
– 24 bit USB audio interface for recording.
The tones I was able to dial in using the iRig Acoustic Stage were very warm and inspiring. It’s portable and priced at around $99/USD and it is a great device for any musician of any skill level to have in their arsenal.
IK multimedia creates products that aid and inspire musicians – I am always looking forward to seeing what they come up with next.
