We are giving away an iRig Pads from IK Multimedia!

iRig PadWe’re probably not going to have a lot of posts this week, just like we had last week. The reason why is it is a holiday, plus I will be traveling to CES in Las Vegas and will have to take a few days off for the excess trip.

Since it has been a while since we had a giveaway, I thought I would end this year with one final one. It is the iRig Pads from IK Multimedia. It is a product that we have reviewed before, and you can read the review here. It is a MIDI Groove controller, if you want the short form.

If you want to win this, it is simple. First of all, Friend The Geek Church on Facebook. This article will be on it, and you can share and like the article from there. Second, simply leave a comment on which one that you want, and then we will enter your name in a drawing to win.

We will have our final drawing on New Years Day. I will send a Facebook message to the winner, and if you, the winner, send me your address, I will send you your prize. Yes, this is a way for me to get the word out on this site, so what are you waiting for? Enter! By the way, if you want to leave a comment on this article, that counts as an entry.

iRig Pads MIDI Groove Controller

iRig PadThe other day, I reported on the K-Board from Keith McMillen Instruments, and it is a MIDI keyboard. This must be MIDI week, as I am reviewing another MIDI product with the iRig Pad.

This product works with the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch as well as a Mac or PC. It is reminiscent of QuNeo, as it allows the user to make beats, launch loops, and mix like a DJ and much more. Again, this is not a product for people like me, because I’m not really a musician. I had my chance to be a DJ after I reviewed the QuNeo, and I said no.

I can tell you about the features. It has 16 velocity-sensitive pads that can light up on your touch. Then there are two knobs, two buttons, and one slider for even more control. The iRig Pad comes with SampleTank for free, and you can use it for sampled instruments like drums, loops, and other MIDI patterns. There are other apps that are compatible with it like Groovemaker 2 and DJ Rig.

What really makes the iRig Pads interesting is how portable it is. What makes it even more interesting is that you don’t need a power cord. Just plug it in and it is all USB or whatever you device that you can connect it to.

Now, I can recommend this, just like I can recommend other IK Multimedia products like the iRig Pro, and you can get the iRig Pads for about $149.99 on the IK Multimedia site here.
