A Tiny Mic with Big Sound

YouTubers, mobile journalists, and other content creators know the importance of great-sounding audio to stand out from the crowd. However, if you capture or stream using an iPad, iPhone or Android device, it's not always easy - especially on the go. We've all watched videos where the audio was compromised by background noise, wind or just annoying echos.

Luckily, you no longer need to struggle to record crisp, clear audio on-the-go or on a budget. The iRig Mic Cast 2 is an affordable, pocket-sized microphone that easily attaches to your device and lets you sound your best anywhere, any time.

Capture Noise-Free Audio
iRig Mic Cast 2 is a tiny mic with big sound. The sequel to IK Multimedia's innovative iRig Mic Cast, it lets you record crystal clear speech anywhere using your iPhone, iPad or Android device. A new dual-capsule design lets you select front or rear pick-up patterns to reject off-axis noise whether you're recording yourself or someone else. You can also select both at once, for an omnidirectional pattern that's ideal for recording interviews and Q&As.

Ready When You Are
Weighing in at just a few ounces, this featherweight mic mounts securely onto your iPad or smartphone. Its innovative magnetic design lets you easily snap it right into place on your device in seconds (even with a case), for set-and-forget convenience. An included breakout cable also lets you use iRig Mic Cast 2 in both portrait or landscape orientation on phones and tablets.

Works With All Your Favourite Apps
iRig Mic Cast 2 works with any app that records audio, so you can shoot YouTube videos, Instagram live-streams, or even use it for Skype and FaceTime calls. The built-in headphone out can be used to listen to the signal in real-time to be sure you're capturing great audio. It's ideal for newer smartphone models without a headphone jack.

iRig Recorder LE/3
To get you started right out of the box, iRig Mic Cast 2 comes with iRig Recorder LE for iOS and iRig Recorder 3 for Android - an easy-to-use, high quality audio and video. Record, trim, edit and share, right from your device.

Holy moses. Never expected so much power from such a small device. This thing will not let you down. Super easy set up - literally just plug it in and you're good to go. For newer Samsungs, Pixels, Onepluses and other phones without headphone jacks, pick yourself up an audio-to-C adapter (like 7 bucks anywhere) and you're ready to rock just the same. :) My only complaint is the feedback and washed out sound I got from singing apps like Smule. I'm not sure if it's because the mic is omnidirectional and picks up everything around me when I have headphones on, or if it's because I'M omnidirectional and experiencing sensory overload... Either way it's worth the price. Definitely recommend.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
