Focusrite have just announced that they will soon be releasing a complete recording bundle for your iPad. The iTrack Dock Studio Pack consists of a professional iTrack Dock audio interface, a pair of professional headphones, a professional condenser microphone and a high-quality XLR microphone cable - all for under £250!
All you need to do is add your own iPad/iPad Mini!
The Focusrite iTrack Dock is a 2-in, 2-out interface that connects to an iPad with a lightening connector. (Please note that it is not compatible with iPads with 30-pin connectors, even if you use an adapter). It features two of Focusrite's renowned preamps for connecting microphones, although it also has connections for hooking up a guitar or bass, or a line level device such as a keyboard/synthesiser.
All you need to do is connect your iPad, plug in your mic/instruments, load up the FREE Focusrite Tape App (or your favourite recording App, such as GarageBand, Cubasis, etc.) and start recording. The iTrack Dock can capture audio up to a quality of 24-bit, 96kHz, for pristine results, and it charges your iPad when hooked up, meaning that you never need to worry about losing power.
In addition to all this, the iTrack Dock lets you connect a compatible MIDI controller via USB, for instant hands-on control over your favourite MIDI-compatible Apps - click here to visit the Focusrite website and view a list of compatible controllers. There are also dedicated monitor and headphone controls for latency free monitoring when recording.
