New product news is filtering out of the NAMM show in California. One item that could be of interest to radio broadcasters is IK Multimedia’s iRig Mic Studio.
The iRig Mic Studio is a petite microphone that looks bigger than it really is. It is designed for PC and mobile device use so it comes with a number of cables featuring micro-USB on one end and the connector to accommodate a tablet, smartphone or PC.
Inside there is a one-inch diaphragm condenser capsule. It offers gain and headphone volume controls along with a 44.1/48 kHz A/D converter. It also ships with a variety of recording and processing software for the various platforms. The iRig Mic Studio is also compatible with most DAWs.
