iRig Mic brings handheld mics to iOS devices

Includes real-time voice effects processor details after the jump.
IK Multimedia have expanded their iRig lineup to include a high-quality handheld unidirectional electret-condenser microphone called the iRig Mic that can plug directly into an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch for recording vocals of all kinds on the go. The mic features a three level gain switch and VocaLive Free, a real-time effects processor app as well as iRig Recorder and AmpliTube Free for recording voice or instruments, though the product also works with other audio recording and processing software.
The iRig Mic also features a dual mini-jack connector to allow real-time monitoring on headphones, speakers, PA systems and mixers, and the conventional-style microphone can be placed on any standard mic stand. It can be used for musicians and non-musicians alike, for singing or podcasting, recording speeches or interviews or songwriting.
Vocal effects that can be added with the included VocaLive Free include choir harmony, pitch correction, de-esser and vocal doubling. The cable included with the mic is 6.5 feet long, allowing freedom of movement.
The iRig Mic will ship in the first quarter of the year, and sell for $60. A more advanced, paid version of VocaLive will also be available when the iRig Mic ships, and pricing has yet to be announced. AmpliTube (free and paid versions) are currently available in the iTunes App Store
