Calling all musicians: IK Multimedia has finally released iRig HD. This is the brand new digital guitar interface that we showed you back in January at CES 2013. It’s pretty amazing and is compatible with almost anything.

Feel free to check out my video overview above. I wanted to give you all a hands-on first look at the brand new iRig unit before doing a demonstration. But if you’re curious as to how it sounds, I’ve put together a nice demonstration video with the brand new AmpliTube 3.0 app that you can check out here.

You’re really getting a great deal with iRig HD. Not only do you get incredible sound, iRig HD also comes packed with interchangeable Lightning, 30-Pin, and USB cables right out of the box. That’s right, use iRig HD with all of your devices – no adapters necessary.

iRig HD Features:

  • High-quality instrument-level 1/4” Hi-Z input jack
  • Detachable cables for Lightning, 30-pin and USB
  • Preamp gain control
  • High-quality low-noise, high-definition preamp
  • High-quality 24-bit A/D conversion
  • 44.1 and 48 kHz sampling rate
  • Powered by the iOS device or USB

Along with my video demonstration, I’ve put together a quick little demo song that will give you an idea of the sound quality that iRig HD can produce. Everything in this song was recorded in AmpliTube Studio that’s also available now as an in-app purchase within AmpliTube 3.0. The drum track is also from the in-app drum sequencer within AmpliTube. Check out the demo song below or right click here and choose “Save As.”

For more information on this amazing new release, check out the video overview above. Interested in purchasing iRig HD? Pricing and availability can be found here on IK Multimedia’s website.
