IK Multimedia iRing Motion Controller

IK Multimedia iRing Motion Controller

Product Information

  • Overview

    The wearable IK Multimedia iRing lets you control your music apps and effects without touching your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac. Using IK’s advanced image recognition, your iOS device camera determines the position of the iRings on your hand. It can then track your movements and gestures and translate them into control over a wide range of music and other apps.

    Beginners can use iRing to create real-time, non-stop dance grooves and scores with the included iRing Music Maker app. Imagine DJ’ing a party and using your hand movements to create the mood and groove. Launch and switch loops and control effects in the moment, in dozens of different musical styles—all without touching your screen. Plus you can record and share your creations with your friends.

    For advanced musicians, the free iRing FX/Controller app takes you into the world of fully customizable touchless control. Using Inter-App Audio or AudioBus, you can use iRing FX as a powerful effects processor, all controllable in 3D using iRing.

    You can also control other apps via Virtual MIDI. For instance, you're able to assign each axis (up/down, left/right, and closer/further) on each ring to a specific parameter, routed to any compatible app. This way you can control up to six parameters simultaneously—and even more using the recognized gestures.

    It's also possible to sync iRing to your Mac via Wi-Fi, letting you use your device as a powerful MIDI controller on today’s most popular music creation and DJ software. Plus, IK’s open SDK means there’s an ever-expanding range of apps to explore.
