CES 2014 - IK Multimedia's iRing Will Let Users Control Music Apps With Hand Gestures

Posted by Rob Rich on January 8th, 2014

iOS apps for musicians aren't a new thing, but depending on the instruments they use actually incorporating these apps into their work can be a hassle. That's where the iRing comes in. These simple-looking rings work in conjunction with the iOS camera's image recognition technology to allow users to control various music apps - including AmpliTube, SampleTank, and GrooveMaker 2 - using nothing but hand gestures. In other words, if you've got your hands full of guitar you won't have to put it down in order to start fiddling with an iOS app. Developers interested in incorporating iRing features into their products can also swing by the official website to request an SDK and free licensing program.

The iRing will be available worldwide sometime within the first quarter of 2014 for $24.99 - in white, silver, and green - at numerous music and electronics retailers.

- Ring controller, in tandem with either of two included apps featuring advanced motion-tracking technology, allows remote control of iOS app and app parameters using hand gestures
- Great for musicians and non-musicians alike
- Includes two identical, two-pattern reversible rings, allowing for numerous control combinations and the control up to 6 effect parameters simultaneously with two hands
- Rings are unique looking, light, comfortable and provide a universal fit
- Included iRing Music Maker app allows novices to make music using hand gestures
- Included iRing FX/Controller app lets musicians and DJs create custom MIDI control setups, plus add and control audio effects when used together with other music apps via Inter-App Audio or Audiobus

IK Multimedia Announces 5 New iKlip Accessories

Posted by Jennifer Allen on January 8th, 2013

IK Multimedia already offers a plethora of great products for iOS device-owning musicians. Now, the firm has extended that selection with the introduction of five new accessories as part of the iKlip range.

In each case, the new iKlip models provide ways in which to mount and position the iPad or iPad mini, thereby enabling users to operate devices hands-free as well as set up the perfect viewing angle towards a microphone stand, tabletop or anything else of use in the studio. It's the kind of solution that's ideal for presentations as well as music studio work, or just around the home.

The iKlip 2 offers such a solution for iPad users, enabling them to attach any type of iPad (from the 2nd generation and later) to a microphone stand securely, as well as be able to adjust the device to just the right viewing angle. For iPad mini users, there's the iKlip 2 for iPad mini, offering the same potential.

Tabletop stands are also available in separate iPad and iPad Mini versions, with the iKlip Stand making things much simpler. It's the ideal stand for connecting the iPad above the desktop so that it's easy to position equipment, such as a musical keyboard or mixer underneath, but it can also be used in the home. Too small an office desk to fit all the devices easily? Use the iKlip Stand to solve such a problem and revel in the extra space!

The iKlip Studio offers a similar solution but is specifically designed for use on flat surfaces, and aimed at those apps that require "energetic tapping and beat making", tying in nicely with the many DJ based apps already out there. Non-slip rubber grip feet, as well as adjustable viewing angles keep the iPad safe and secure, plus it folds flat, lending itself perfectly to easy storage.

The iKlip 2 for iPad and iKlip 2 for iPad mini will be priced at $39.99 or €29.99 excluding tax, while the iKlip Stand for iPad and iKlip Stand for iPad mini will be $59.99/€49.99. The iKlip Studio for iPad mini is priced at $29.99/€24.99.

We're big fans of IK Multimedia's accessories and I suspect these new iKlips will be quite the hit when they ship during the first quarter of 2013.

The mic pre-amp from IK Multimedia has arrived, allowing you to use any professional XLR microphone you want with your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. You can use it to record vocals, of course, but instruments also benefit from a clean pre-amp mic sound.

There's more to see on the iRig Pre website, and look for our review next week.

iRig PRE has the essential features found in professional studio microphone preamps like an adjustable gain control, 48-volt phantom power and an audio/headphone output jack for real-time monitoring.
