Sure, we all know that the iPad is a great tool especially when it comes to creating music. When you have a famous band on a major label creating an album using only the iPad – you don’t need to look any further than that. While it is great for creating music using software, the tablet struggles when it comes to recording real-life instruments. Not because the tablet’s powerful processor or software can’t handle it – the iPad just lacks the necessary ports.
The folks over at Alesis realize this and have come up with a simple solution to the problem called the iO Dock. This special dock allows users to pretty much connect any instrument they want to the iPad without using any special adaptors to change the head of the cable for input. Users can just plug in their regular music cables connected to their mics or instruments directly into the dock, which the iPad should be plugged into. Creating music is then just a strum away on the plugged in guitar/ a breath away on the microphone/ a key-press away on the keyboard.
If you’re keen on making music with your iPad, this looks like one must-have accessory. The Alesis iO Dock is now available from musical instrument and pro audio retailers everywhere with a U.S. Retail Price of $399.00 and an estimated street price of $199.00.
