Griffin iOS Interfaces
Griffin has released two new music making interfaces for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
StudioConnect is an audio/MIDI interface for the iPad. It offers a range of I/O options, and is set to go head to head with Alesis's iO Dock when it's released in February for $150.
MIDIConnect simply offers MIDI I/O, but is notable for being 'broken out' from the dock connector on a cable and offering full-size MIDI ports. This will be available in the spring for $80.
The multipurpose StudioConnect for iPad combines both audio and MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) recording into one device that also simultaneously charges the iPad.
- Audio In - with its own gain control. Plug in your instrument through a mono 1/4" jack or plug a mixer into StudioConnect's stereo 3.5mm jack.
- Audio Out - Left and right line-level RCA plugs. Also a 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack with its own volume knob helps monitor what's going in and out.
- MIDI In - Connect your MIDI controller through a standard 5-pin DIN MIDI-in port.
- MIDI Out - A second 5-pin DIN connector accepts a sequencer, sound module or other MIDI gear, allowing your iPad and MIDI apps to act as a MIDI controller.
Pricing & Availability
MIDIConnect will be available this spring for $79.99. StudioConnect will be available in February for $149.99 at www.griffintechnology.com.
