iRig MIDI 2 1st portable Lightning /USB midi for iOS, Mac & PC

iRigMidi2 IK Multimedia has just released iRig MIDI 2, the first portable Lightning/USB MIDI interface for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch as well as Mac and PC.  iRig MIDI 2 adds a whole new level of portability and connectivity thanks to its detachable and interchangeable cable inputs, standard MIDI connectors and pocket-sized form factor. It’s the perfect mobile MIDI solution for the musician on the go.

iRig MIDI 2 is so flexible because all of its cables are fully detachable and interchangeable via its Mini-DIN connector: Users can swap out Lightning connector, 30-pin connector and USB cables on the fly, which allows for quick switching while on the move. All cables are bumper friendly, which means that iRig MIDI 2 can be plugged into mobile devices without having to remove any protective case.

iRig MIDI 2 comes equipped with three standard-sized female MIDI DIN sockets: IN, OUT and THRU. These allow for full MIDI functionality and connectivity with any MIDI-enabled device: keyboards, hardware synthesizers, software sound modules, drum machines, drum pads, DJ controllers, pedal boards, DAW interfaces and more. iRig MIDI 2 sports two blue LEDs that provide at-a-glance monitoring of the MIDI data passing through the IN and OUT sockets.

iRig MIDI 2 is small, lightweight and durable featuring a rubberized enclosure . It can be easily carried in a pocket to any gig, performance, studio or jam session. No need for any extra power adapters since it draws its power directly from its host device.

A Full Suite of Companion Apps

With iRig MIDI 2, there’s more than just MIDI. It ships with a full suite of music creation apps. iOS users get two of IK’s most popular mobile apps via App Store download: SampleTank FREE is a sound and groove workstation filled with hundreds of high-quality instruments and patterns. iGrand Piano FREE is a concert-quality piano app that puts world-class piano sounds at your fingertips. Both apps contain exclusive bonus sounds that are unlocked when iRig MIDI 2 is registered.

Mac and PC users can enjoy the full creative power of SampleTank 3 SE,a free special edition of IK’s next generation SampleTank® 3 desktop sound workstation. Beyond all that’s included, iRig MIDI 2 also works seamlessly with all MIDI compatible Mac and PC software, plus the entire spectrum of Core MIDI apps for iOS; such as GarageBand, Cubasis, Music Studio, BeatMaker 2, Animoog, Korg Gadget and many more.

iRig MIDI 2 has been designed and manufactured in IK’s own factory in Modena, Italy. It’s available now from your favourite music and electronics retailers and from the IK Online store for only $99.99.
