The iPhone and iPad gets a condenser microphone: iRig Mic Video Demo with Starr Ackerman and CJ Pierce, guitarist for Drowning Pool!


So now if you have an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, you are just $60 away from becoming a great singer, or at the very least, an interesting sounding radio podcaster: all you need is iRig Mic and a VocaLive FREE app! Check out this video demo for iRig Mic and the VocaLive app that I was honored to do with CJ Pierce, guitarist for the popular rock back “Drowning Pool” (you know- they had an uber-popular hit with the chorus “When the bodies hit the floor!”). In the video demo, CJ and I check out the more fun features of singing into the iRig Mic from IK Multimedia, and using the pitch correction, morphing and choir effects from the VocaLive app for iPhone/iPod Touch, and iPad (to be released sometime soon in February 2011 from iTunes). The video is shot from the Winter NAMM 2011 show floor in Anaheim, California, USA from the IK Multimedia Booth.

Winter NAMM 2011 Video demo: Starr Ackerman (that’s me) and CJ Pierce, guitarist for alternative/heavy rock band “Drowning Pool”.

Why is this cool for musicians? Because it’s the first professional microphone and app for vocals available for recording on your iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad!

The iRig Mic is the first hand-held condenser microphone for the iPhone, iPod touch and the iPad (for vocalists, radio personnel, songwriters, musicians and podcasters). The iRig Mic will work with ANY app that will accept an audio input, so if you are trying to record video interviews with your iPhone or iPod Touch, you can record professional sounding audio just by plugging the iRig Mic into your device! You can also use the iRig Mic for karaoke apps, other recording apps, and basically- like I said before- any app that will accept an audio input. For more info on the iRig Mic, please click here to visit the IK Multimedia website.

I showed the iRig Mic to CJ Pierce in the video with VocaLive, an app geared for vocalists, music production, audio post production and radio/podcasters) that will be available soon to download a free app, or a paid app from iTunes. The VocaLive app has a three rig vocal chain (a popular vocal chain that vocalists use live on stage would be “Reverb, Delay and Chorus”). There is also a 4-track recorder in VocaLive that looks like an old school cassette tape deck, so you may overdub vocals, write or reference songs or perform live on stage and record it! VocaLive also has an “import song” feature that will allow you to sing over backing tracks from your iPod or iTunes library, and also has voice-canceling features for karaoke. to learn more about the many features and availability of VocaLive, please click here to visit the IK Multimedia website.

Thanks for watching the video on vocalist music production from Starr Ackerman’s Music Production Blog!

  4. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all.
    Nevertheless think about if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could certainly be one of the best
    in its field. Excellent blog!
