IK Multimedia iRig PADS iOS MIDI Pad

IK Multimedia's iRig PADS is a full-featured ultra-portable 16-pad MIDI groove controller for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch as well as Mac and PC. An extremely versatile system, it lets you make beats, launch loops, mix like a DJ and a whole lot more no matter whether you're on stage, in the studio or anywhere between. It's the ultimate travel companion for the mobile electronic music producer on the go.

Ultra-portability

iRig Pads is so portable that you can take it with you anywhere. It's smaller than an iPad and less than 1" thick (23mm). It features a slim, compact and lightweight design that can be slipped into any backpack or laptop bag and carried around with ease. And for even greater portability it's been designed with ultra low-consumption, which means it's fully functional as soon as you connect it into its host device -- You don't need a power adaptor. Just plug it in to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch via its included Lightning cable (30-pin connector sold separately) or your Mac or PC via its included USB cable and start groovin'.

You'll enjoy incredible tactile control thanks to iRig Pads' 4x4 grid of 16 velocity-sensitive, backlit multi-color rubber pads. Each pad lights up in multiple colors -- red, green, orange and every shade in between -- depending on the velocity of your playing and the MIDI information sent by your chosen music app or software.

But iRig Pads does more than your average mobile pad-based MIDI controller. Its full set of controls -- two knobs, two pushbuttons, one slider and one pushbutton rotary encoder -- provides a versatility that lets you be in control in any situation. All controls are MIDI assignable and customizable: Up to 16 distinct MIDI maps or "scenes" can be saved and recalled instantly for full control of apps and software. It comes with 6 pre-programmed default scenes that allow it to work with popular apps and software right out of the box.

Easy editing

iRig Pads has been made so that you can easily customize so that it fits seamlessly into your creative process. It comes with an easy-to-use free editing program called iRig Pads Editor. Available for Mac and PC, it features an intuitive single-screen interface that lets lets you quickly create, edit and transfer scenes to iRig Pads. This gives you full control over all MIDI messages and assignments from the convenience of your computer. Now you can customize and tailor iRig Pads so that it fits your own unique production and performance workflows. iRig Pads Editor is available inside the User Area.

The iRig Pads Editor feature lets you customize nearly every detail of your pads:
