iRing FX/Controller

By IK Multimedia

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.



iRing FX/Controller is the engine you need to bring your music performance in the third dimension. With iRing FX/Controller DJs and musicians get two apps in one: a real time audio effect processor and a MIDI controller, both controllable by your hand gestures, thanks to the new impressive iRing motion controller technology.

iRing FX/Controller can be fully operated using the device touchscreen, but unleashes its full potential with the iRing motion controllers (sold separately at your favorite electronics and music retailers), a set of two “rings” you wear on your fingers, to control music apps by waving your hands in front of your device camera. iRing features two sets of dot patterns that iRing FX/Controller app recognizes, translating their motion into control commands.

When iRing FX/Controller is used as a real time audio processor, you can control 2 simultaneous effects, selectable within 16 high quality tempo-synced creative effects; choose from effects like Filter, Delay, Compression, Reverb and Wah, or add a new level of audio creativity with our suite of wacky DJ effects like stutter, Fuzzy, Crush, Twist, Brake, Spin and Tail. You can process external audio in real time, fed through the digital or analog audio-input of your device, or thanks to AudioBus and Inter-App Audio compatibility you can use it on the audio stream of other compatible apps running in background on the same device.

Up to 3 parameters for each effect can be controlled simultaneously with iRing FX/Controller which supports IK's exclusive X-Sync features to detect tempo from external audio sources in realtime and automatically sync the effects tempo. iRing FX/Controller is extremely easy to use and with a little practice, you’ll be creating amazing performances in no time.

When used as a MIDI controller, iRing FX/Controller can transmit MIDI messages to other Virtual MIDI compatible apps running in background or to external devices using compatible MIDI interfaces (like iRig MIDI or iRig PRO). Send MIDI messages such as Control Change, Notes, Program Change, Pitch Wheel, After Touch, MIDI System Realtime, MMC (Midi Machine Control), with up to 3 assignable parameters (the X,Y,Z axis position) for each of the 2 detectable iRing. Store MIDI Message Presets in which you can add multiple assignments for each axis. Additionally MIDI messages can also be sent to Mac software applications wirelessly (using MIDI network).

Also multiple gestures are detected and can be used to send MIDI messages, like iRing show/hide, clockwise/counterclockwise rotation, camera field of view enter/exit and more. Control your MIDI compatible apps, software or hardware in a choreographic way for a new level of musical (or other) performance control. Free the flow of your creativity.

Customer Reviews

The iRings are Awesome!

The iRings are a novel way of adding new ways to have the control of your music right on your hands. They are super affordable peripherals and they really unlock the potential of the apps made to use them. It's such a cool way to "handle" your music, they really work and in a very short time you'll be doing some amazing things not possible with out useing such a marvelous device! There are 4 apps out currently that the user can use the iRings with and change the way music is made for ever! With the iRing control app you can control your sounds by just turning, wavering, and moving your hands over the screen where the camera can see the lil dots on the actual rings, that's the key to how they work, once you register them, your all set! And haYou have a new way to control your effects, which will look awesome on stage or even to just impress your friends.

Fun, Good sounding dj/smashup multi-effect unit

As long as I don't get any popup ads (that plague some of IK Multimedias other apps), interrupting me, I give this one thumbs up. It's fun to use, sounds good, works great in Audiobus and so on. And no physical iRings are needed to use and control everything in this one.

At the moment there are 16 different effects (think LiveFX, Turnado, Effectrix etc) to get creative with. It is a bit limiting in terms of numbers of effects running at the same time, which is 2, when compared to beasts like Sugar Bytes offerings. But it uses the multitouch-screen XY interface really well, allowing you to manipulate both effects simultaneously, and sub parameters.

An advantage this one do have over other similar multi effect units on iOS, is that it's universal so you can use it on your iPhone as well.

If I do get popup ads I will update the review and score to reflect that.

No IOS8 support

Non functional on either of my IOS8 devices. Embarrassing that Apple allows this to be sold via the Apple Store. Investigating a return of mine.
