IK Multimedia iRig PRE

IK Multimedia has gone the full crow while dreaming up some words to help promote their nifty little iRig PRE.
Don't get us wrong, we're fans of iRig PRE, and it's quickly becoming one of the most requested products of the range, but seriously, who writes this stuff?
"This is perhaps the most important product introduction for musicians and the rest of the civilized world since the iPod and iPad"
Ok, now we've got that out of the way, let's take a closer look at what this tiny box can actually do.
iRig PRE provides an XLR input for any TRRS device - iPhone, iPad, Android device, etc - in the form of a mic preamp, with phantom power, gain control and a headphone output for monitoring.
The lightweight (100g) portable preamp comes prepared with the 40cm TRRS cable attached. iRig PRE has a 48v Phantom Power feature that lets you use your favorite condenser microphone with your iOS device. It takes a standard 9V battery.
