IK Multimedia is pleased to announce that iLoud® Micro Monitor, the smallest active studio reference monitoring system in the world, is now available and shipping worldwide. With an ultra-linear frequency response, best-in-class bass (down to 55Hz @ -3db), the smallest footprint and incredibly detailed sound, iLoud Micro Monitor is the perfect reference monitoring system for tight studio spaces that delivers high-end sound without the high-end price. With iLoud Micro Monitor, musicians, producers, video editors and sound designers now have a way to critically listen to their music and audio no matter where they're working - in a bedroom studio space, hotel room, tour bus, a larger studio as a second set of monitors, or just streaming music and listening at home. Powerful detailed sound iLoud Micro Monitor delivers amazingly detailed, clear and accurate audio in a compact, efficient and portable enclosure. They are able to do this in conjunction with the DSP-controlled frequency response, ultra-accurate and time aligned crossover and smart design - the drivers are powered by four ultra-efficient class D power amplifiers that push out a combined 50W RMS of power. Each speaker sports a 3/4" silk dome tweeter, a 3" custom composite material performance woofer and a large flaring front-firing bass reflex port. iLoud Micro Monitor's sound is characterized by pleasing high frequencies, an exceptionally "open" detailed midrange and a solid, controlled low end. Total DSP control iLoud Micro Monitor provides a flat and linear speaker response in any listening environment thanks to its on-board 56-bit digital signal processor (DSP). The DSP handles the frequency and phase response of the monitors and also manages the dynamic range so that the drivers are always under control. The DSP also acts as a digital crossover allowing for invisibly smooth transitions between the drivers themselves. This DSP can be adjusted to suit different listening environments thanks to three EQ switches: One for treble, one for bass and a DESKTOP toggle that lets users optimize iLoud Micro Monitor for use in either a free field or desktop setup. iLoud Micro Monitor can be positioned on a desktop at two angles of inclination with their dual-position isolation bases, or in free-field positioning on standard microphone stands thanks to their integrated threaded mic stand mounts (UNC 3/8"-16 thread). The "Super-nearfield" monitoring system iLoud Micro Monitor is designed so that the sweet spot is at the ideal location when users are creating, producing, mixing or listening to music. And because the sweet spot is closer to the speakers, users are able to monitor the audio without the unwanted effect of room reflections that can color the sound, thus presenting the most accurate sound in a small space. Input options iLoud Micro Monitor accepts both RCA (cable included) and 1/8" wired connections and can also be paired for Bluetooth streaming with all Bluetooth audio streaming-enabled devices. The bottom line iLoud Micro Monitor delivers stunningly accurate and detailed sound for mixing in any space - from cramped bedrooms to large studios - without the compromises in sonic quality normally associated with small and budget monitors. Simply put, iLoud Micro Monitor's sound is so good that it's nearly inconceivable for a speaker system of this size and at this price point. iLoud Micro Monitor inputsPricing and availability iLoud Micro Monitor is now available and shipping from music and electronics retailers worldwide, and from the IK online store for only $/€299.99 per pair (excluding taxes).

IK Multimedia once again redefines a product category for guitarists with the newly released iRig Nano Amp - the versatile micro amp with a built-in iOS interface. iRig Nano Amp gives players both a standalone portable guitar amplifier PLUS an interface that lets them plug their guitar into an iPhone or iPad and use AmpliTube for iOS to access an unlimited and inspirational world of guitar tones on the go. iRig Nano Amp is available now from IK Multimedia and music and electronics retailers around the world. The first micro amp and interface for mobile guitarists iRig Nano Amp is a super-compact, battery-powered, self-contained micro amp and interface for iOS that players can use by itself, with headphones or even an external speaker cabinet - this power-packed amazing little amp can drive up to a 4x12" guitar cab! But what makes it more versatile than any other micro amp available is that it features the iRig circuitry so that guitarists can plug their iPhone or iPad into it with the included TRRS cable and tap into the limitless world of AmpliTube guitar tone and more. Dual Mode Operation - AMP/DEVICE What makes iRig Nano Amp so unique is that it operates in two different modes: AMP & DEVICE. In AMP mode it's a standalone amp for impromptu practice anywhere. In DEVICE mode it's used as an interface and amp for an iOS device. Plus, in both modes players can use the built-in speaker or hook up an external speaker cabinet - up to a 4x12" cab - for more volume and tonal clarity. AMP mode iRig Nano Amp operates as a straight-up guitar amp and features a British tone stack circuit with tone and volume controls for practice on the go. Players simply plug their guitar into the 1/4" guitar input, adjust the volume and gain settings, select the output type NORMAL/BRIGHT and rock out. The British tone circuit delivers sparkling clean tones at lower gain settings and a cascading wave of overdrive when cranked to the upper limits. DEVICE mode iRig Nano Amp is also an interface and monitor for an iOS device thanks to its integrated iRig circuit. Players use the included TRRS cable to hook up iRig Nano Amp in DEVICE mode to an iPhone or iPad and plug in to the amazing toneful world of AmpliTube to play, practice and record anywhere, any time. This is great for grabbing ideas in AmpliTube's 4-track looper or recording studio, or just practicing with the models of AmpliTube gear and more. When used in DEVICE mode, the internal tone stack circuit is bypassed and the volume knob controls the overall output of the amp. Headphones can be used in DEVICE mode for monitoring the processed signal coming from the device. Drive a cab iRig Nano Amp features a 1/4" speaker out jack that can drive up to a 4x12" cabinet. Once plugged in, guitarists will be floored by the volume and tonal definition that iRig Nano Amp provides. An external cabinet can be used in both AMP and DEVICE modes providing the most flexibility of any micro amp available. Under the hood iRig Nano Amp is compact - it's just slightly larger than an iPhone and features a handy "kickstand" for tilting back the unit for better monitoring. Inside, iRig Nano Amp powers a 3" speaker with a 3-watt class A/B power amp. It features a 1/4" guitar input, a 1/4" speaker output, an 1/8" headphone jack, is powered by 3 AA batteries (included) and comes complete with a TRRS cable for connection to an iOS device. iRig Nano Amp can be used in 3 output monitoring options - in DEVICE mode with headphones for private practice, or with the internal speaker active or external speaker cabinet connected to the 1/4" speaker out in both DEVICE or AMP modes. An expandable universe of tone Since iRig Nano Amp lets players plug into their iPhone or iPad, they'll have access to AmpliTube for iOS - the largest and expandable collection of virtual gear available from the world's top manufacturers. Available models include amps and stomps from Fender®, Ampeg®, MESA/Boogie®, Orange® and signature artists like Slash, Jimi Hendrix™ and more. With iRig Nano Amp and AmpliTube, a complete guitar rig is always close at hand. Pricing and availability iRig Nano Amp is available now from IK retailers worldwide or from the IK online store for only $/€49.99 (excluding taxes).

The Spider V modeling amps from Line 6 offer more than 200 amps, cabinets and effects, with more than a hundred artist-designed presets, classic rig presets and Line 6 originals(Credit: Line 6) Yamaha-owned Line 6 says its new Spider V guitar amplifiers come with more amps, cabinets and effects than any other amps in their class. What's more, most of the models in the series have a cooked in wireless receiver that's compatible with the company's Relay transmitters, giving players the opportunity to go cable-free with ease. The 5th generation Spider amps are available in four flavors, with only the baby of the bunch not coming with built-in wireless technology that will work with Line 6 transmitters such as the Relay G10. This essentially means that, for the most part, players looking for the freedom to move around the stage without tripping over long cables no longer need to make sure there's a Relay receiver in the gig bag. There are also more than 200 modeled amps, cabinets and effects are on offer, and once an amp and cabinet combination is chosen, up to eight effects can be chained together simultaneously. The Spider V series has been designed for ease of use, with settings and parameters called up using familiar knobs and a simple editing interface. Color-coded controls are reported to make selection a breeze. Artist-designed presets allow noodlers to dial in pro tones created by world-renowned guitarists, though the company hasn't revealed which artists are featured, as well as Line 6 originals. Rig presets are also on tap, which are based on the studio setups from "legendary songs and albums," while genre presets give access to tones designed to fit different styles of music. Should players find the included sonic arsenal too limiting, a Spider V mobile app for iOS and Android gives access to over 10,000 tones stored in the cloud, as well as the ability to upload and share their own creations with the Line 6 online community. Each model sports a full-range speaker system that's been designed to easily cope with the different demands of electrics and acoustics, and even digital music, as well as useful practice tools like a metronome and looped drum samples recorded by professional drummers. An included USB interface means that players can connect to a computer or mobile device straight from the amp, without the need for external gear like IK Multimedia's new iRig HD 2. There's an integrated tuner, too, and each purchase comes with a free Cubase LE 8 recording software download to enable the capture moments of inspiration or to lay down full songs. The only member of the series that's not wireless-ready for Line 6's Relay transmitters is the Spider V 30, which features a bi-amped 8-inch loudspeaker and a tweeter for full-range sound. As with all of the V series, the number at the end of the name denotes the rated output, in this case 30 watts. Next in line is the Spider V 60, that's rated at 60 W output and comes with a 10-inch speaker and tweeter setup. This amp also has a 60 second looper to allow guitarists to play along with their own layered chops. The Spider V 120 is rated for 120 watts of output, with a speaker system made up of a 12-inch loudspeaker and tweeter. This model features a 60 second looper and XLR direct outputs. Lastly, Line 6 has given the top of the range Spider V 240 two 12-inch loudspeakers and two tweeters for 240 W of rated output. Again, there's a 60 second looper and XLR outputs. The Spider V series is available now. The 30 carries a suggested retail price of US$279.99, the 60 comes in at $419.99, the 120 at $559.99, and the 240 at $699.99. The video below shows the Spider V in action.

As part of that long-term vision, JP-IK has developed a tiered approach, addressing the high-level and policy implementation needs, as well as the needs from Students and Teachers. On the latter, JP-IK has developed mymaga (http://www.mymaga.eu/en), a brand whose products can be found in retail spaces and SMB channels in Europe, providing unique products aimed at students and their families, including specific features that address these usage scenarios. At a national level, JP-IK has a complete set of competencies and professionals able to work closely with Governments to develop the most demanding Education solutions, at a local, regional or national level. The broad scope of national projects already developed make JP-IK an ideal partner for Governments that aim to implement Education solutions for their citizens. As recognition to the unique knowledge that JP-IK has of the Education ecosystem and requirements, Jorge Sá Couto has been invited to be a patron of Virtual Educa, an organization within the Organization of American States that aims to create a space for multilateral cooperation in Education and innovation targeting development and inclusion. The patrons meet once a year and the goal of the group is to provide the political endorsement and specialized counseling on the definition of global strategies for Virtual Educa.

IK Multimedia, a leading manufacturer of hardware, accessories, apps and software for iPhone, iPad and Mac, is pleased to announce the availability of the new iKlip Grip Pro - the professional quality 4-in-1 tripod and handle for capturing professional photos and video on the go with any iPhone or compact action video camera. iKlip Grip Pro lets users securely hold their iPhones while using the stand as a compact tabletop tripod, a video handle, a monopod or as a standard tripod adapter. iKlip Grip Pro features an integrated, all-in-one compact design that provides the highest level of convenience for capturing media on the go. Ultimate Control and stability for the best shots iKlip Grip Pro is the new large-grip, compact multifunctional iPhone and camera stand with an integrated detachable Bluetooth shutter control that is really 4 accessories in one: super secure tabletop tripod, large-grip video handler, monopod handler and standard tripod adapter. iKlip Grip Pro can securely hold any iPhone with or without a case, and features a standard mounting system for connecting small mobile video cameras like GoPro®, compact digital cameras and stand-mount audio field recorders. iKlip Grip Pro features a large, ergonomic handle that expands into a sturdy tripod, an integrated locking extension pole that extends up to 62 cm (24") for getting those "above the crowd" shots and selfies, plus a detachable Bluetooth shutter control for remote shooting. Firm Grip - Securely holds any iPhone The secret to iKlip Grip lies in its ingenious expandable and secure holding bracket that allows users to precisely position their iPhone, with or without a case, at any angle for capturing photos, video and audio. iKlip Grip Pro features an expandable spring-loaded soft-touch rubber bracket that provides secure superior holding power. Repositioning an iPhone is as simple as expanding the brackets to release the iPhone, then re-securing it. Firm Support - the tabletop tripod iKlip Grip Pro features a new large ergonomic handle design that is super comfortable for most hand sizes. The new larger grip is perfect for stabilizing video and capturing "blur free" photos, especially in zoom modes. The handle base also can be transformed into a compact tabletop tripod for positioning on any relatively level surface for ultra-steady media capture. The trick lies in its ingeniously designed locking mechanism - when closed and locked, iKlip Grip Pro is a handle suited for most "handler" tasks like selfies or ultra-steady video shooting on the go. But when unlocked, the handle's three legs fold out to form a firm and sturdy tabletop tripod that is ultra-secure and steady. In tripod mode, users can easily shoot steady video and photos from a single location, or use the front-facing camera for hands-free FaceTime™ video chat or live broadcasts like Facebook Live, SnapChat or Periscope productions. Firm Extension iKlip Grip Pro also features an integrated ultra-stable, locking 4-segment telescopic extension pole. At any time users can simply unlock the pole and extend it to their desired length, up to a max of 63 cm (24.8"). And since the pole is integrated into the design, no additional assembly is required. The pole extension is perfect for the distant "selfie", but also ideal for getting "above the crowd" for audience-less band shots, closer-than-they-appear shots and anything in between. The extender also works in tripod mode so users can position an iPhone or compact camera at the perfect distance above the tabletop. Pivoting 360° Positioning iKlip Grip Pro has a pivoting ball-joint attachment point that provides a full 90° angle adjustment plus 360° rotation capabilities for freely positioning an iPhone in any orientation. This allows users to get just the right angle and position for that perfect shot. Remote Control iKlip Grip Pro comes with an integrated yet removable Bluetooth smartphone shutter remote control that lets users wirelessly activate the shutter button in video and photo apps. A holder clip on the handle provides "one handed" thumb-activated shutter control. When using iKlip Grip Pro as a table top tripod, the shutter control easily detaches for capturing shots remotely. The Bluetooth shutter control is universally compatible with iOS 5.0 and above and can be operated up to 10 meters away. Tripod Adapter When the spring-loaded iPhone holder is removed from the iKlip Grip Pro, users have two additional uses - a standard UNC ¼" 20 universal tripod and handle for small digital cameras and action video cameras, and a secure grip iPhone holder that can be used on standard tripods. This is convenient for capturing stills and video with an iPhone when a more professional tripod is needed in more challenging situations, and using iKlip Grip Pro with compact action cameras or field recorders. Pricing and availability iKlip Grip Pro is available now from Apple Online and Retail Stores worldwide and from the IK online store for only $/€59.99 (excluding taxes).
