Griffin Technology Features StudioConnect HD at NAMM

One of my highlights from NAMM 2014 was the StudioConnect HD. Griffin Technology's newest device for mobile musicians provides more options to record and perform music on iOS and Mac OS X.  

Griffin Technology, one of the world's foremost creators of accessories for home, mobile and personal technology, offered two exciting new products for the mobile musician at the 2014 NAMM Show, held January 23-26, 2014 in Anaheim. Griffin Technology exhibited in the Hal Leonard Booth, Hall B, #5720.

After recently expanding its offerings for musicians and announcing a deal with music distribution giant Hal Leonard, Griffin will showcase StudioConnect HD and Guitar Sidekick, which tap into the power of Apple's iOS and computer platforms to help enhance musical creativity.

“As mobile devices continue to impact the music world, we raised the bar for portable recording interfaces that let musicians and producers work on projects whenever and wherever inspiration strikes,” says Ethan Opelt, Audio Line Manager at Griffin Technology. “StudioConnect HD is an intuitive, streamlined product that encourages creativity.”
