I’ve heard a number of reviews say that the iRig MIDI is feels plastic and not sturdy. I can understand that. However, on the positive side the fact that it is lightweight means that it won’t over stress the connector. This is why I thought it would be useful to see this picture of the iRig MIDI sitting connected to an iPhone 4.
On the subject of the device feeling plastic, it does, but then so does the Line6 MIDI Mobilizer I and II.
