IK Multimedia is a company that manufactures and sells different accessories for musicians to use with iPads and iPhones.
Since I claim to be a musician, and since I have an iPad, I thought I would give a few of their products a try since they were advertising a "B-Stock" (blemished/returns) sale.
I purchased the iKlip, the iRig, and the iMic.
I had already purchased their iRig Pre, which allows you to plug a standard microphone into your iPad. The iMic ( http://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/irigmic/ ) is a microphone that plugs into the iPad without having to carry a second accessory. We will see if it works well for recording, and for recording my blogs more often by "voice."
The iKlip ( http://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/iklip2/ )is a little ingenious thing that holds your iPad onto a microphone stand in various positions depending on what you are using the iPad for. Since I have most of my song music in the Pages app on my iPad, I thought I could use the iPad instead of carrying a big 3-ring notebook and a music stand. I tried it out just now, and I like it a lot. I think it's going to work. I've seen singers and musicians use several variations of the iKlip when they performed at venues I frequent, mostly for singer guitarists who sing at restaurants. If it means less to carry, and helps me justify the money I spent on the iPad in the first place . . . then let's go!
The iRig ( http://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/irig/ ) allows you to plug your guitar into your iPad, to record or to use the iPad as a pedal board with various guitar player apps. Not sure how it's going to work with acoustic guitar. I will share that info later.
Hope the learning curve on all this is easy. More to come.
