| Cool Stuff Found

The folks at Focusrite have released another cool recording product for iOS device owners, the iTrack Dock. This is a docking station for your Lightning-connector iPads (4th gen iPad, iPad Air, iPad mini, iPad mini with Retina Display) that has built-in audio inputs for recording multiple sources at once. It includes dual Focusrite microphone preamps plus two line inputs and an instrument DI, independent stereo monitor and headphone outputs, and a USB port for class-compliant MIDI instruments and controllers. It then works with any Core Audio-enabled digital audio workstation app, where you can use the iPad itself as a control surface coupled with the hardware controllers on the iTrack Dock. Come on, that's way cool! it's priced at US$199 at dealers, and will ship after the NAMM show later this month. The video below shows the device in use by Gavin Smith.

Hokey Smokes!  What an incredibly cool machine - I swear, I will probably get one if only because they deserve for everyone who can play any instrument to buy a unit in honor of the fantastic job they have done in creating something so beautiful and capable.  I’ve been a home-recordist since the mid 80’s - this is the essence of what you need to be able to do really great work - and it’s such a tidy little package - I am genuinely impressed.
