With its XLR combo jack, you can connect any microphone, instrument, or line-level source straight to your Mac or iOS gizmo. The iRig PRO even features a low-noise external gain control so you can set levels with the flick of your thumb.

It is important to understand what the iRig does (and does not) do. The key feature is an analog-to-digital converter that captures an analog sound signal (guitar, banjo, bass, microphone, or any other instrument capable of generating an analog output) and turns it into a digital signal that can be accepted by an iPhone or iPad. To turn that signal into a recording requires an App that does that.
This is where the iRig Pro is a let down. The free app (AmpliTube) that IK Multimedia provides are not very useful. For example, they don't allow recording a "clean" signal. You can get a nice distorted electric guitar sound, but if you want to record without distortion, you'll have to purchase add ons. I found that out after receiving my iRig and I was quite disappointed. I had expected the free software (at least after the "unlocks premium content") to provide a basic, unaltered recording option. It does not. You can use GarageBand with the iRig, which is free in its basic configuration. But you may find it isn't a very good solution either.
In the end, I went with the software from a different developer to record music. Using that, the iRig performs very well. The 1 star deduction is for the fact that this item by itself will not let you do what you'd expect it to do, but you won't know that until you buy it.
One curious observation. Leaving the iRig plugged into my iPad over night somehow resulted in the iPad shutting off power to the Lighting connector. To get the iRig working again, I had to reboot the iPad. I now unplug it after each use.
NB The first box I received had everything in it, except for the iRig itself (QC person #6 must have had a bad day). After getting in touch with Amazon, they immediately shipped a replacement with one-day delivery. Thank you Amazon!
Ah well. I will baby it as long as I can but I don't think it will stand up to rugged use.
