IK Multimedia iKlip 2 iPad mic stand adapter review

Yo what’s good fam!

Back with a review of something for all the iPad lovers that like to take it with them on stage or in the booth.

Today I’m checking out the iKlip 2 from IK Multimedia

let’s see what’s up!

So what is the iKlip 2?

iklip2It’s an updated version of the iKlip mic stand adapter which allows you to attach your iPad to a mic stand on stage, or in the studio.

I’m not familiar with the original one so I can’t compare but this one is pretty well designed.

The first thing I noticed was that the space for the pole/stand is rather large so that allows you to attach it to a variety of sized mic stands, tripods, or any other device that would fit into the space.

I personally tried it on a mic stand as well as a larger pole from my laptop arm attached to my desk that holds my Maschine…it worked perfect, I could mount the iPad above my Maschine with no issues.

It’s also easy to adjust the angle and orientation, it pretty much rotates 360 degrees as well as allowing you to adjust the angle to your tastes.

Quick Specs

  • devices: iPad 2, 3, 4, and iPad Mini (separate product)
  • price: $39.99

So what’s the bottom line?

If you need to attach your iPad to a mic stand, tripod, or some other type of pole for any reason you should check this out for sure.

The main thing I wanted to know is if it was easy to setup, and if it can withstand constant tapping and pressing without falling down and having to constantly be adjusted, it definitely delivers in that area.

4subsI would say the iKlip 2 gets a solid rating of 4 out of 5, it does what it says it will do, with ease, sturdiness,  and straightforward setup.

There aren’t many features needed on something like this, but the stuff I was curious about I found.

For my personal use I don’t go out live or anything so I’m more of a desktop stand guy, but for those that have uses for this say using AmpliTube app on stage, DJ apps, fx, vocal processing, sheet music, lyrics, or anything similar….this will do the job just fine.
