IK Multimedia’s iRig was one of the first do-it-all devices when it came to guitar audio interfaces that were as happy to play with smartphones and tablets as they were with the traditional PC/DAW setup.

The iRig has been through multiple iterations, most recently the iRig HD 2, and in the meantime other competitors have entered the market. Now IK Multimedia has given its flagship guitar interface another overhaul, announcing its reincarnation as the HD X.
