For immediate release -
IK Multimedia announces iRig Micro Amp
an ultra-compact guitar amp with integrated
Portable 15W guitar amp offers easy access
to a world of practice,
& recording apps with high-quality sound
21, 2019 - IK Multimedia debuts iRig®
Micro Amp, a battery-powered, ultra-compact
combo amplifier with three on-board analogue channels
plus a high-quality digital interface for direct
connection to iPhone, iPad, Mac and PC. This allows
users to expand their tone palette by unlocking a
variety of amp and FX models in the included AmpliTube
software/app bundle, as well as connecting to their
favourite apps for learning, recording and playing. iRig
Micro Amp also offers powerful sound that rivals larger
amps, plus the ability to connect to external cabinets
for even more volume.
A pint-sized powerhouse
Three analogue channels - clean, drive and lead -
deliver a full palette of sounds with distinctive
characters, created by the same tone gurus behind IK's
award-winning AmpliTube software. On board are bass,
mid, treble and gain controls to cover a wide range of
tones. iRig Micro Amp offers 15W power (7.5W when
running on batteries), and combined with its 4"
custom-voiced speaker, pumps out surprising volume at
half the size of similarly-powered amps. When additional
volume or a bigger speaker is needed, iRig Micro Amp
also offers a 4Ω cabinet output to keep up with a full
drum kit for band practice.
Weighing only 2.6 lbs. (1.2 kg), iRig Micro Amp is one
of the most compact amps in its power range. With its
compact size that fits in a backpack, and flexible
options, iRig Micro Amp is an extremely portable and
convenient option for everything from a bedroom or
desktop, to jamming with friends or street busking
Plug in. Rock out.
Derived from IK's industry-leading iRig HD 2 mobile
guitar interface, iRig Micro Amp's iOS/USB connection
lets players connect to their iPhone and iPad directly
without additional accessories, as well as to a Mac and
PC to process their tone with IK's AmpliTube app and use
their favorite practice, performance and recording apps
and software. The guitar's signal is sent to their
device for processing, and the return output plays back
directly through the amp's 4" speaker, eliminating the
need for other accessories. It's an entire setup in a
single integrated unit, with pristine 24-bit, 96 kHz
With the included AmpliTube app and software, iRig Micro
Amp can deliver a massive range of tones with
unbelievable realism. iRig Micro Amp users can download
AmpliTube to unlock 10 amps and 26 stompbox effects in
AmpliTube CS for iPhone or iPad, and 9 amps/10 stomps in
AmpliTube 4 for Mac/PC, for free, providing powerful
ways to process their tone right out of the box.
Guitarists can also expand their sonic collection a la
carte with IK's range of additional amp and effect
models - there are over 280 pieces to choose from,
including officially licensed re-creations of gear from
Fender®, Orange®, Mesa-Boogie® and other iconic gear
manufacturers, as well as guitar legends like Slash,
Jimi Hendrix and Dimebag Darrell, all available as
in-app purchases or Custom Shop collections.
Play. Practise. Record.
iRig Micro Amp is fully compatible with dozens of
popular learning, practice and performance apps, making
it fun and easy for guitarists to learn new licks,
polish their technique, or jam along with their
iRig Micro Amp users can easily start recording their
own musical ideas and tracks with apps like GarageBand.
They can also connect to professional recording software
like Logic, Pro Tools and more, creating a convenient
desktop setup for use on the go.
