A versatile performer, in the studio and on the go
iRig Pre HD is a versatile performer in virtually every professional context. If you are a musician or a singer, you can use it with a dynamic microphone to mic up a guitar amp or to record amazing vocal takes with your trusted large condenser mic, (just engage the +48V phantom power and you are set). You can even use it with ribbon microphones to faithfully capture their gently rolled-off character. If you are a journalist or a correspondent, you now have a tool that allows you to capture ready-to-stream hi-res digital audio on your device during interviews, on-the-ground news reports and much more.

Integrated headphone out with level control
iRig Pre HD features an onboard headphone output with dedicated volume control that can serve a variety of useful purposes. It can be used as an auxiliary output to send out the recorded sound to external devices like an amplifier, a PA, a compact mixer or a radio system. You can use it to drive your favorite set of headphones and enjoy high-resolution music playback on your device (even the latest iPhone), taking advantage of the high-quality internal D/A converters.
The direct monitor switch allows you to listen to the sound being recorded in real time. This means you can easily monitor yourself while recording a vocal take with a backing track or listen to your interview guest in a noisy environment without any latency. With the simple flick of the switch you can change back to regular monitoring and check the playback or listen to other audio files.
