IK Multimedia iRig UA – Review

On November 6, 2015, in Adapter, Android, Apps, Audio, iOS, Macintosh, Music, Review, by Frederick Wells
$80 U.S.
iRug UA 1


iRig UA by IK Multimedia is an audio interface that allows you to create real time effects from many Android devices. It is very similar to IK Multimedia’s iRig2, but the UA adds a built in digital signal processor (DSP) that expands its capabilities to become a digital recording interface.

I recommend you read through the company’s dedicated web page for this product.
