Over the last couple of years, I’ve had the opportunity to test out a large handful of Bluetooth speakers. In my opinion, most of them offered the same generic functionality with different branding. Thankfully, IK Multimedia switches it up with iLoud. Not only is this an excellent tool for musicians, it’s probably one of the best Bluetooth speakers I’ve ever used.

IK Multimedia is at it again. You may remember this awesome little device from CES 2013 in Las Vegas, NV, but guess what? It’s finally available to the public. Yup. BlueBoard is shipping. Along with that, IK Multimedia has a lot of great information to share about it. Check out the press release below.
Looking for an easy way to capture pro audio on the go? You may want to check out the RODE SmartLav. This little guy connects to your iOS device and works exactly like a regular lavalier microphone. Check out my video review and demonstration above to see what’s so great about this new microphone.
Over the last few months, I’ve had the opportunity to demo Akai’s MPC Renaissance. In all honestly, I’ve never been a big MPC type of guy, but this fine piece of hardware and it’s software integration has changed my opinion.
In the market for a USB microphone? You may want to check out my review of Nessie. This is an adaptive plug-and-play microphone for Mac/PC/iOS that will add real-time processing to your voice.
If you’ve been looking for a high quality pair of headphones, I’d definitely take look at what California Headphones has going on. I caught up with this company back in January at CES 2013, and just recently, had a chance to check out their Laredo series headphones. For more info, watch my video review above.
Along with the release of iRig HD, IK Multimedia launched a brand new version of AmpliTube. Version 3.0 adds a brand new mutlitrack studio that’s perfect for getting out song ideas or complete compositions. Recently, I had the chance to get hands-on with iRig HD and AmpliTube 3.0 and put together a nice video demonstration.
