Earlier this month TUAW published a review of the IK Multimedia iKlip Xpand, a wonderful accessory for musicians that makes it simple to mount an iPad onto a music or microphone stand. Today, IK Multimedia announced iKlip Stage for iPad (free with in-app purchases), which manages scores, lyrics, tabs and more for your performing pleasure. Swiping on a page turns to the next page; it's like flipping a page of music, only the score is less likely to go skittering onto the floor.
The free version of the app lets you hold 30 files (PDF, TXT, PNG, JPG, TIFF, RTF and BMP supported) and two set lists. Register an iKlip and iKlip Stage will increase capacity to 60 files and four set lists. For an in-app purchase of US$9.99, the app can hold unlimited scores and setlists.
The app and iKlip Xpand products are a boon for musicians, who can replace a beat-up folder or notebook of scores and setlists with an iPad or iPhone that can also be used with iRig BlueBoard, a Bluetooth MIDI pedalboard.
