  • iPad stand that mounts to keyboard stand

    Hey guys

    I'm using my iPad on gigs a lot lately and was wondering if there was a mount that attaches to a keyboard x stand (or similar).

    I know there's the GigEasy and iKlip which attach to a mic stand, but would prefer something that attaches directly to my X stand.

    Any suggestions?

    Nothing terribly cheap, but this looks like it's about the best option. Price is comparable to what we used to pay for camera stands at work.

    lots of gear and not a computer in sight.

      ram-mount.com has various clamps and brackets with available ipad adapters that you can probably find a way to mount to just about anything.

      But something that looks good to me for keyboard player ipad access, assuming you have a few inches spare on your keyboard, might be to velcro the base of this:

        This is what I did for my Standtastc stand


        Works fine. I came up with a 2nd ver that lets me leave the clamp part on the stand and I just screw on the short gooseneck and xclip once the stand is assembled. Takes another 30 seconds to setup!

        I tried something similar for an x stand by bolting a mic adapter to the side of the upright part of a tier extension, the upright that slides/clamps into the back of the horizontal tube on x stand (what the keyboard rests on). It was ok but I found the iPad was to far off to one side like that which does not seem to be an issue with the Standtastic mount.
        I tried using a 12 inch gooseneck to bring the ipad into the center but the ipad was too heavy and the goose neck just bent and was way to floppy anyway.
        The only way I can think of to do it is to make a bar that goes across the x stand behind the keyboard bit like a 2nd tier extension and mount the ipad mount to that but it seems like it'd be bulky. I like my standtastic mount because every thing is left on the stand or just goes in my bag.
        The further away I am, the better I sound....
