IK Multimedia has announced the release of iRig Stream Solo and iRig Stream Pro mobile audio interfaces for connecting a variety of sources in applications such as podcasting and streaming.
iRig Stream Solo is an analog interface for iPhone*, iPad and Android that lets users connect up to three separate sources and mix them for streaming, offering RCA inputs and a 3.5 mm headphone/microphone jack. In addition, audio from the host device can be looped back and mixed together into a signal that’s nire optimized for streaming and sent to the user’s choice of streaming apps. *May require the use of Apple’s Lightning to 3.5 mm headphone jack adapter (TRRS).
A 1/8-inch mono Thru line output lets users send audio to additional devices such as cameras, mixers and more. Device power is via two AA batteries.
Meanwhile, iRig Stream Pro combines a 24-bit, 96 kHz audio interface for iPhone, iPad, Android and Mac/PC with a comprehensive 4-input in-line mixer. An XLR-1/4-inch combo input, stereo RCA, TRRS and device inputs (Loopback) offer I/O. It offers two modes — by default, it operates in stereo mode and pre-mixes multiple sources of audio (RCA stereo inputs + Loopback, XLR-1/4-inch combo input and TRRS microphone) down to a stereo track, which is sent straight to streaming apps like Instagram, Facebook, Twitch, etc.
Switching to multichannel mode, the combo and TRRS inputs are routed to channels 3 and 4 respectively, giving users 4 channels of audio to send to recording apps such as GarageBand or any other compatible DAW. Multichannel mode offers Loopback+, a feature that lets users route either or both channels 3 and 4 to audio apps such as MixBox, AmpliTube or VocaLive for processing and then route their outputs through the Loopback feature and into channels 1+2 going to their preferred streaming app.
USB, USB-C and lightning cables included with iRig Stream Pro. It operates with two AA batteries or via bus power on any Mac/PC. An optional PSU not only powers iRig Stream Pro, but also keeps iPhones or iPads charged.
Both interfaces are designed to work with any app that records or streams audio or video. To get started, they come with iRig Recorder 3 LE (iPhone/iPad/Android), audio and video recording app.
