Via Boing Boing

I’m not sure how fresh this is, but it was news to me.

Alesis are releasing an iPod dock which will allow musicians to connect more of their outboard gear to the iPad to make music. Sounds pretty sweet:

– The world’s first pro audio dock for iPad
– Connect microphones and instruments including guitar, studio monitors, PA speakers, headphones, and MIDI controllers
– Universal device works with virtually every audio and MIDI app in the App Store; Core MIDI compliant
– Perform, craft, create and play back music in virtually any conceivable manner or location
– Video output for connection to TVs and projectors
– Inputs: two combo XLR-1/4″ for use with audio gear, instruments, and computer audio
– Input channel gain controls and switchable phantom power for use with condenser microphones
– Guitar-direct switch for use with amplifier- and effects-modeling app
– Outputs: pair 1/4″ and 1/4″ headphone with separate volume controls
– Control: MIDI In, MIDI Out, USB MIDI, and assignable 1/4-inch footswitch input
