The iRig range of accessories from IK Multimedia have been known as primarily iOS accessories; that’s what the lowercase “i” usually means! But soon Android owners can get in on the fun, as IK has announced at CES the impending release of iRig Recorder for Android. This supports the microphone range of accessories, including the iRig Mic, and iRig PRE, which serves as a pre-amp for professional-grade XLR microphones. This app can not just record input from these accessories, but it can also serve as a way to playback and edit the audio recorded from the accessories. Files can be exported as either WAVs or as OGG files. Files can be transferred via email, FTP, Bluetooth, or shared through the built-in device sharing. The app will come in a $4.99 full version with the editing functionality, and a free version that supports recording, with editing able to be unlocked via IAP. Note that the guitar accessories are not yet compatible with Android.
