iRig Acoustic Stage is the new hi-tech solution for accurately reproducing the full sound of acoustic guitars and other instruments with studio-quality sound live on stage and in the studio. The combination of its advanced MEMS microphone and hi-quality preamp and DSP processing unit provides — for the first time ever — a break-through solution that offers hi-quality natural sound, advanced features, ease of installation and a convenience never seen before.

Built for the Stage and Project/Home-Studio

With iRig Acoustic Stage, you get an enhanced acoustic sound that’s perfect for live performances and recordings. If you have an audio interface, simply plug iRig Acoustic Stage into the analog input. No Interface? No problem! iRig Acoustic Stage also features an integrated class-compliant USB audio output for direct connection to your computer or compatible device. Now you can get that “studio” sound AND have the freedom to move around freely!

Acoustic Preamp and Built-in DSP

The magic of iRig Acoustic Stage comes from the combination of the microphone, the preamp, and the signal processing unit. iRig Acoustic Stage analyzes the incoming signal from your guitar, both the overall sound and nuance of the instrument and the playing technique and builds the optimum tone profile for the instrument. The tone profile can then be enhanced through the use of 6 selectable tone presets, depending on the playing situation. iRig Acoustic Stage gives you 3 presets for steel string instruments — natural, warm, bright — and the same 3 optimized for nylon string instruments.

Perfect for Acoustic-Electrics

iRig Acoustic Stage also features an AUX input with a volume (MIX) control. This input is designed for use with your acoustic electric’s onboard piezo or magnetic pickup. You can use iRig Acoustic Stage in combination with a piezo pickup system and blend in just the right amount of microphone signal while avoiding uncontrollable harsh feedback.

USB Digital Recording Output

iRig Acoustic Stage features a class-compliant USB audio output making it perfect for direct connection to a computer or a mobile device for plug-and-play recording in any compatible DAW or recording app.

Pricing and availability

iRig Acoustic Stage is available now from the IK Online Store and retailers worldwide for only $/€99.99 (excl. taxes).

hi is this product going to be improved or upgraded soon? i would really like a wireless version of this. even if it would cost a little over 400 but not more than 500 dollars then it would be fine and i think a lot of people will buy it. dealing with two cables especially with the thin one connecting the small mic is a bit disappointing.

Can I plug my own piezo pickup into this system instead of the provided one? I'd like to use it for direct headphone monitoring of my double bass on rehearsals.

Hi, iRig Acoustic Stage must be used with the MEMS microphone it comes with (it is not a piezo).

Thank you a lot for your reply! I've also contacted the support team by mail and they've said I can connect my piezo pickup through the AUX input and Acoustic Stage will amplify this signal. Can you please confirm this?

Ah if you have a direct output from your piezo (typically 1/4") you can do so, yes.

Yes, my piezo pickup ends with 1/4 Female Jack. That's great news, thank you!
