Make Sweet Geek Music With The iTar
iMac. iPhone. iPod. i...Tar? Yes, iTar--a device that can mount your iPad, Kaoss Pad, and a Kaossilator, bringing you the capability to produce the latest in futuresque and infusion music, developed by VJFranzK.
The "MANTARAY iTar" is basically a sturdy fiberglass "DJ Frame" that allows you to hold and sync your three devices. The frame can mount your iPad, Kaoss Pad, and Kaossilator in a sturdy locked-in position, and the guitar strap lets you hang it off your body so you have a full range of motion to use any of the three devices.
Once your devices are mounted, you simply load any iPad music app of your choice, use the Kaossilator for creating a wide range of sounds and rhythms, and use the Kaoss Pad to add interesting effects like reverberation or wah-wah (watch Scratch and Sniff by Bela Fleck and the Fleck Stones for an example of a bassoon and sax playing the "wah-wah" sound). Now you can do all that and more!
If that's not enough for you, you can add on extra devices, like a wireless transmitter for full range of motion across the stage or other electronic and mechanical devices for an even greater range of musical vocals. VJFranzK is charging $225 for the latest version of the iTar. Check it out in the video below.
