From the category of “Yet Another iPad Music Accessory” come 2 items from the labs of Griffin Technology, makers of iPhone, iPod, iPad and other device accessories since 1992.
Griffin Technology now presents StompBox for iPad and Mic Stand for iPad. StompBox is a professional-quality pedalboard for the iPad. It allows musicians to use it as a portable, programmable effects board and practice rig while recreating the experience of an actual pedalboard. Plug it into the iPad, connect to iShred LIVE (free app from Griffin with 12 electric guitar effects) and get ready to rock n roll!! It is priced at $99.99 and is “coming soon” (expect it in the first quarter of 2011). For details, visit: http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/stompbox
As the name says, the Mic Stand Mount lets you mount the iPad on any microphone stand for use either for practice or for the stage. Now this is something I’ve waited for. In the studio I would use my iPad to display lyrics of the songs we were recording. This would have been a perfect fit. The makers say that the Mic Stand Mount screws onto a standard microphone stand, which can be lowered or raised as need be, and is securely stable at the required height. It rotates and locks into either portrait or landscape view and tilts up to 90 degrees. The Mic Stand Mount is priced at $39.99 and will be available in January 2011.
