The new Quattro features four XLR inputs, with inputs one and two accepting Hi-Z sources and inputs three and four accepting line level signals, stereo TRS, and stereo RCA, and is capable of multitrack recording at 24-bit/90kHz.

Each input is capable of +48V phantom power and feature built-in, low profile gain knobs for quick and easy adjustments. It can also send and receive MIDI signals to sync with MIDI capable instruments and controllers.

The outputs are either a left and right XLR or AUX stereo line, and can be monitored through your connected device or directly on the unit via the headphone input. Recording can be done in mono, stereo, and multimode. 

Other onboard features include a built-in microphone for quick recording from any location and a built-in limiter to prevent clipping and distorted signals. 

The Quattro has no internal storage or SD card slot, rather it connects to your other devices, such as phones, computers, and cameras, and records directly into these devices. Allowing for easy storage and editing.

The Loopback+ feature allows for rerouting of inputs three and four through audio apps such as MixBox and AmpliTube for easy external signal processing. Adding effects and treating audio for a more professional sound.

The device accepts power from either four AA batteries, USB or 9v DC adapter, so it is ready to use no matter the situation.

The deluxe edition of the Quattro also comes with an attachable X/Y configuration microphones, windscreen, and carry case.

The iRig Pro Quattro I/O is ideal for any musician or content creator on the move, who doesn’t want to be weighed down with a large and complicated setup. It allows for quick set up with the built-in mics and easy to operate faceplate, while also providing the ability for expansion with its range of features. 

It will retail for €349.99.
