At CES and NAMM (and beyond), IK Multimedia introduced a number of cool new products. Some – such as DJ Rig – have already been released (and I am finishing up my review now), while we are still waiting for others such as iStomp and iRig Mix. But now we have shipping news for another cool product – the iKlip Studio stand for the iPad!
Here are some details:
iKlip Studio is constructed of lightweight, shock-resistant, durable thermoplastic material that reliably supports the iPad in both horizontal and vertical positions. 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.
Apps like synthesizers, beat pads and other instruments can be played energetically on the multi-touch screen with no risk of the device moving or sliding. 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 tablatures or scores placed behind keyboard controllers.
A detachable bracket is also included to hold IK’s hugely popular iRig™ guitar interface adapter in place and keep it from hanging off the iPad, and for extreme portability, the iKlip Studio folds flat so it can be easily carried in any iPad or laptop bag.

The folks at IK Multimedia were kind enough to ship us an evaluation unit, and I am in the process of reviewing it now – look forward to my full opinion in the next week or so but suffice to say this is very much what I have been looking for in a iPad utility stand!
