    FYI - Sweetwater has them in stock as of the time of this post:

    https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/iRigAcousticStg

    Guitar Center does not show it yet, nor Musicians Friend or the other 5 sites I checked listed as online dealers on the IKMM product pages. Maybe in a week or so, since NAMM is just starting today.

    I thought they only worked with iPhones & iPads, so never even bothered to look at them before!

    What a daft name to call it - no doubt lots more people like me about - they're probably losing quite a few sales.

    I'm going to watch for your opinions before buying one, but if this works, it would far outweigh the expense of a MiSi...and allow for use on multiple devices!

    Keith, this product in this thread is BRAND NEW, and yes, many products from IKMM were only for iOS devices. Starting about 3 yrs ago, they ALSO made USB audio interfaces under the iRig name.

    For me, they can call it anything they want as long as it works well for the price.

    Just curious - since there is a USB output, could you use it directly with a DAW on a Windows machine? That might make it useful as the simplest rig to take with me when travelling in case the recording bug strikes me.

    I would say that DAW input (regardless if Mac/PC/Linux/iOS/Android) was part of the intended use as per this info direct from the page linked above in the first post:

    [edited to add] Rick, your RISA stick can likely go into the AUX input which is intended for the piezo that might already be built in to your instrument, and you can turn the MIX knob to 100% AUX and all should be well. Keep in mind that this is a MIC and NOT a pickup so attaching it onto something like the RISA stick is likely to not capture much sound, this is NOT a piezo pickup it is a MEMS mic. If you have not already watched the video above, it shows how this is done.

    Whether the name daft or not, the original iRig was the first device of it's kind that allowed a guitar input to the original iPhone
    That's what I'm saying - they were marketed for iDevices - & I don't have any!

    Thanks for reminding me about the Jampoints! With a 30% discount from Jampoints I figured that I might as well be one of the mavericks here too.

    So add me to the list of early-adopters of the gen-2 version of the iRig Acoustic (sigh and fingers crossed)

    They only let you apply the points for a maximum of 30% off the price per item, so I actually have some points left over.

    Thus the price went from $99, down to $69, which is cheaper than Sweetwater, Amazon or B&H, all of which have free shipping. So since basic GROUND shipping from IKMM was a hard $12.99, I opted to upgrade that to 2ND-DAY-AIR for an additional $4, and in the end the total came out to $86.98.

    Depending upon their pre-shipment processing time, I should have it in a few days.

    Once I get it and have a chance to play with it, I will put up a video.

    However, I have a low tolerance for devices that do not deliver on their promise and if I am not happy with it, I am sending it back right away, but I will still share the video in either event.

    Stay Tuned!
