Alesis’ Pro iPad StudioDock for real pros
Not many professionals in music and sound that I know have turned to the iPad as a smart audio accessory. This may be a good way to lead them to it: Alesis Pro iPad StudioDock. The dock adds combo of 1/4-inch XLR jacks for MIDI outs, in addition to 1/4-inch headphone jacks, independent volume controls and video output to connect with a projector or TV. It extends compatibility with almost all audio and MIDI apps in the App Store. You can jam with the device by connecting your guitar and use the effects apps available.
There’s nothing on the pricing of the StudioDock, but I’m going for this one for my nerdy sound engineer friends.
