A few years ago, when I discovered the original iRig, i was so excited. As a musician that traveled, the iRig (in my case along with the IK multimedia app, AmpliTube) it gave me the ability to practice, record new song ideas, and transcribe songs while on the road with great sound quality, and minimal equipment. I loved the sound quality and ease of the apps that I found that even when I wasn't on the road, I was using the iRig for practicing and recording ideas at home.

With the rise in popularity of the selfie, comes the selfie stick that even our Commander in Chief has found useful. IK Multimedia yesterday announced the release of their newest product, the iKlip Grip, a multifunction smartphone camera stand that literally is a 4-in-1 device. Not only can it be used for fun “selfies” to share on social media sites, it is quite handy for a multitude of uses to include a camera handler/stabilizer, a tripod, a monopod, or an adapter. I was given the opportunity to preview this product and was quite impressed.
I, like many practicing guitarists/musicians, have grown tired of the annoying sounds of a metronome. So when I was presented the opportunity to review the BeatBuddy, I was excited. I thought it would be a great tool to make my practice sessions more interesting. Once I started using the BeatBuddy, I felt like a kid in a candy store. With 200 preloaded beats, and 10 drum sounds on the provided 4 gb SD card (you can get new beats and updates online), I realized it was everything I was hoping it would be, and so much more.
