iKlip Mini: A Microphone Stand Attachment for iPhone and iPod touch

Posted by Carter Dotson on July 11th, 2011

IK Multimedia, makers of the iRig Mic for iOS, and the iKlip for the iPad, have introduced their latest accessory: a version of the iKlip for the iPhone and iPod touch called the iKlip Mini. The goal of the iKlip Mini is the same as the full-sized iKlip: to mount the iOS device of choice to a microphone stand. This iKlip is compatible with all iPhone and iPod touch models, supports both landscape and portrait orientations, and comes with detachable bracket support for the iRig's microphone adapter to attach to the side of the iOS device. All buttons on the device are accessible, and the clip can be installed either on the microphone stand's pole or boom. The iKlip Mini will be available soon for $39.99 from IK Multimedia's web store, or from select music and electronic retailers. The original iKlip was rated four stars here on 148Apps; hopefully the iKlip Mini proves to work just as well.

IK Multimedia Introduces iRig Mic for iOS

Posted by Carter Dotson on March 23rd, 2011

IK Multimedia, creators of the iRig guitar interface allowing guitarists to play their guitar on iOS devices, are back with the iRig Mic, a handheld condenser microphone with multiple gain settings designed to work with iOS devices. Similar to the iRig, it comes with an adapter that plugs into your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad's headphone/mic jack, and the adapter has a sound output for monitoring your sound with headphones or plugging into a sound system. The microphone will work with any app that supports sound input, including the new GarageBand app for iPad, but several apps from IK Multimedia are available that will utilize the iRig Mic: VocaLive, which offers real-time vocal processing effects; AmpliTube, so guitarists can add vocals to their guitar playing with the app; and finally, iRig Recorder, a free audio recording app that is coming soon. The iRig Mic is available from IK Multimedia for $59.99.
