Even with an attractive case, protective foldable cover, and matching back-shield, do you occasionally find it difficult to position your iPad properly next to your work area? Would it be nice to have a portable versatile stand to meet these needs?
IK Multimedia has released another great product called the iKlip Studio. It is constructed of lightweight, shock-resistant, durable thermoplastic material that reliably supports the iPad in both horizontal and vertical positions. The rubber foot pads grip the desktop surface and prevent unwanted sliding, and convenient slots in the housing allow access to every port of the device for charging or connecting to external speakers with handy channels for keeping the cables neatly organized. Its flexible orientation allows its position to tilt from a very low-profile angle (ideal for use with apps like mixers or controllers) to a near-vertical position for use as a reader for tabulatures or scores placed behind keyboard controllers.
A detachable bracket is also included on the iKlip to hold IK’s iRig guitar interface adapter in place and keep it from hanging off the iPad. For extreme portability, the iKlip Studio folds flat so it can be easily carried in any iPad or laptop bag.This stand now occupies a prominent location next to my MacBook Pro for easy and quick reference of my iPad. It also becomes an occasional easel for my spiral-bound notebook and work papers. It is very functional and handy for many things.
iKlip Studio costs $29.99 and is available from select music and electronics retailers worldwide, or direct from the IK Multimedia online store at www.iklipstudio.com. Many other popular iPad and iPhone hardware and apps can also be found at this website. This stand has been designed for musicians, and is a practical solution for most iPad owners in almost any desktop use, as I have found in everyday practice.
