Alesis announced that the JamDock for iPod is now shipping to retailers.
Musicians can connect and mix in nearly any instrument, Alesis assures, including electronic drums, and send the resulting mix to the stereo outputs and headphone output.
JamDock is designed to enable musicians to mix their iPod and instrument and practice or play backing tracks live. JamDock has two 1/4-inch inputs that work with both line-level sources and high-impedance guitars and basses. The inputs sum to mono when there is only one side present, so the musician hears their guitar centered in their headphones. A pair of 1/4-inch outputs feed amplifiers or PA systems and a 1/4-inch stereo output feeds headphones.
Musicians can use JamDock on a flat surface, such as a guitar amp, or mount it on a drum rack or stand using the e-percussion Module Mount, sold separately.
JamDock comes with a free minusDrums.com music-track subscription for fun play-along sessions.
