Just before this year’s CES officially kicks off, IK Multimedia has unveiled iRig BlueTurn ($70), a new compact Bluetooth-based page turner for musicians, designed to allow hands-free navigation of set lists, scores, lyric sheets and more on iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Mac. BlueTurn is a small foot controller with two backlit soft-touch buttons, similar in design to the company’s earlier iRig BlueBoard MIDI controller. iRig BlueTurn can be paired with IK’s own iKlip Stage setlist management app as well as many other popular page-turning and document viewing apps. iRig BlueTurn is expected to be available in February 2016.
In addition, IK Multimedia also debuted iKlip A/V ($180), a new mount for the iPhone and other smartphones designed for professional mobile audio and video production. Aimed at professional broadcasters and videographers, iKlip A/V includes an integrated high-quality XLR mic preamp with standard 48V phantom power and built-in wireless receiver support for professional audio capture, along with headphone monitoring and 1/8” TRRS audio output, and gain control. A large ergonomic handheld grip and expandable smartphone bracket allow you to securely attach any iPhone or iPod touch with screen sizes ranging from 3.5” to 6”; the mount can also be attached to a monopod or tripod, and the smartphone bracket can be detached and replaced with a traditional compact video camera instead. iKlip A/V will be available in April 2016.
