MusicTech has been taking a close look at iKlip 3 Deluxe, courtesy of editor, Will Betts.
Here are some of his key comments:
"The iKlip 3 is an update to the company’s successful iKlip Xpand mic-stand support for tablets. The design means it can be mounted quickly and securely to the boom arm in front of a singer, or on the upright of a mic stand, either on the front (for effects) or out to the side (for sheet music)."
"iKlip 3’s main new feature is a new quick-locking reorientation function that’s achieved with a pull-and-twist motion. The mechanics of this are really quite clever."
"It gets you from portrait to landscape, or thereabouts, in a blink. In theory, there’s no screwing or unscrewing required to change orientation, just a pull and twist."
"When fully tightened, the ball-and-socket joint holds the tablet bracket sturdily, with no noticeable sag."
"The new tablet bracket is certainly an improvement on the previous design. The new design has two, large rubberised inserts for gripping your tablet and these are glued securely in place, preventing scuffs."
Will's final verdict is:
"If you’re a performer making use of a tablet on stage, then the new quick-lock reorientation function could make it a worthy upgrade. Equally, if you’re using tablets in the studio for lyrics as well as control over personal monitoring, this could be a tremendous asset."
