iKlip Universal Microphone Stand Adapter

If you or your band is lucky enough to own an iPad, you’ve probably already started exploring the many different apps available to musicians. Now you can safely bring those apps into your rehearsals or performances with the iKlip, a universal microphone stand adapter that holds your iPad in place, so you can concentrate on playing.

“Music students are using iPads to create music with, read music with, and now, march and perform live with,” says Starr Ackerman, U.S. public relations manager at IK Multimedia. “The iKlip is there to ensure safety measures for the iPad while functioning as a way to facilitate performance and practice in a mobile manner.”

Made of durable but lightweight thermoplastic, the iKlip attaches to any microphone stand and can hold the iPad vertically or horizontally in many viewing angles. Students can use the iKlip and iPad to record, read music, adjust equipment settings or even do fun activities like karaoke. “Marching bands need to read music on the fl y and while practicing in the music hall as well as creating, reading and practicing at home,” Ackerman says. With a price of $39.99, “the iKlip is something that is low-cost enough, so that music students may have several units if needed.”
