Video interface

When you use IK Multimedia’s iRig Pro Quattro I/O as a broadcasting or video interface, it turns your iOS or Android device into a fully-featured field recorder. This means you don’t need an SD card; you just use your mobile device or computer to record files. The iRig Pro Quattro I/O even has an onboard MEMS microphone that’s DSP-controlled for optimal sound.

Preamp and mixer

The iRig Pro Quattro I/O also works great as a standalone preamp and mixer with +48V phantom power for up to 4 condenser mics.  In total it has four XLR/1/4″ for mic, guitar, and line in with phantom power. It also has two RCA 3.5 mm line in. There are two balanced XLR outs and a headphone out with direct monitoring. You can use the full set of inputs/outputs to capture and mix multiple sources. You can then send the mix to your DSLR camera or a PA system for live performances.

Dimensions

The IK Multimedia iRig Pro Quattro I/O measures 6.54-inches by 3.62-inches by 1.69-inches and weighs only 0.72 pounds without batteries. For ease of use, it mounts to a standard UNC 1/4-inch camera thread. It can be powered by 4 x AA batteries, USB or DC using the optional PSU.

Pricing and availability

The IK Multimedia iRig Pro Quattro I/O is available now and retails at $349. It is also available as the IK Multimedia iRig Pro Quattro I/O Deluxe edition with iRig MIC XY stereo microphones. This version will cost $449 and will be available from the end of June
