IK Multimedia has rolled out the iRig Mic touted as, "the first handheld quality condenser microphone for the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad, suitable for all mobile recording sound needs," according to a news release.

The iRig Mic is compatible with any app that accepts an audio input so it can be used with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.

IK Multimedia says the audio quality is substantial because it is unidirectional which reduces peripheral noise.

The iRig Mic is bundled with VocaLive, a free real-time vocal effects processor suite; AmpliTube a free app for guitar players; and iRig Record, a free app for quickly capturing and processing audio.

The suggested retail price for the iRig Mic is $59.99 and should be available in all major consumer electronic stores and music stores.
