Stopped by the Griffin booth and found out about their newest device – the Mic Connect. This is a box that will take any XLR micorophone and connect it to an iPad.

Griffin Mic Connect (Griffin Mic Connect) also uses the 3.5 mm jack instead of the connector. That way you are assured you can use whatever iOS or Android device to record podcasts, music or other audio.

The Griffin Stompbox is a must for guitar players, whether you are a professional or amateur.

I wish I could play the guitar and use the cool features in this device.  I had to look on in awe as I watched the people coming and going playing with the stompbox at CES.

I also got to see the “Slap” for the first time. Its an wrist band, which makes a wrist-watch of your iPod nano. The “slap” is available now on Griffin’s website.
