Following the success of the iRig Acoustic, the iRig Acoustic Stage is the next generation in acoustic amplification. A simple, no fuss way of getting into home recording and a one of a kind, flexible option for live performances.
The iRig Acoustic Stage uses the same high quality MEMS microphone/pickup as the Non Stage regular model. The Stage version adds an acoustic preamp for use into an amplifier or mixer. Portable and easy to use on stage, the iRig Acoustic Stage adds advanced functions for calibrating the sound. It can also enhance the sound of an instrument already fitted with a pickup.
How to use
iRig Acoustic Stage is easy to fit to your ukulele or guitar with no modification required. The MEMS microphone pickup is plectrum shaped and slides neatly over edge of the sound hole. Plug into the acoustic preamp and the signal can go out into any amplifier, mixer or DI box.
How it works
Using the iRig Acoustic Stage MEMS pickup is like using a microphone on your instrument in a studio setting. The acoustic preamp is designed to replicate as accurately as possible the true acoustic sound of your instrument. That means you can use the iRig Acoustic Stage on both steel and nylon strung instruments. Featuring 6 EQ presets optimized for steel or nylon, in Warm, Bright or Natural settings.
Customise to your playing style
The iRig Acoustic Stage preamp sounds great from the get-go using the factory presets. For the best sound, you can even tailor the response of the preamp to your playing. The iRig Acoustic Stage is capable of analysing the output signal and can even calibrate settings best suited to your instrument!
What about Feedback?
Amplifying acoustic instruments using microphones or sound hole pickups can be problematic. Smaller instruments, like ukulele can be prone to feedback without an undersaddle pickup. iRig Acoustic Stage combats this with a simple to use Cancel Feedback button. And it works! The Cancel Feedback button stops offending squeals from your instrument at the touch of a button. Neat!
Enhancing the sound of your Electro Acoustic
iRig Acoustic Stage is also great for enhancing the sound from instruments already fitted with a pickup. An AUX input allows you to plug in your electro-acoustic, and create a blend of the two sounds. The MIX control lets you adjust the balance between the two to suit your taste. Create your own mix of both signals! Great for combining the attack of your undersaddle pickup with the acoustic response of the iRig the best of both worlds!
