      The iO Dock has high quality inputs and outputs. I would compare it to standalone audio interfaces (available from numerous manufacturers). The specifications are available online. Where it really differs is the way the iPad becomes an audio/midi workstation. As more and more applications take advantage of the iPad Core-Midi and high quality audio connectors, this docking station will provide incredible flexibility. Plugging into Garage Band on the iPad and using this as a front end to an audio system is a given, but using the iO Dock as a front end to applications on the PC or Mac is where it really shines. Its ability to send and receive midi commands through the standard midi ports and a USB-midi port opens up the possibilities.
      The iO Dock is sturdy and very well constructed. It is made of plastic, but is well re-enforced and feels like it would protect the iPad from pretty much anything.
      Some have complained that the iO Dock has to be plugged in (with the included 6 volts power transformer) that makes it less portable, but the iO Dock/iPad combination wasn't made to be standalone: it is much more more usefull whith instruments plugged in and when it is plugged into other components. This is a non-issue.

      First of all, it's great, simply great to have so many connections in one place. It's wonderful, and NO OTHER product in the market will give you so much as of NOVEMBER OF 2011. It's all you would expect it to be like you can read in other reviews, but none of the reviews will tell you some flukes, which I am going to. So again, it's AMAZING, and I will only alert you of the not so great things... Many people complain that they only have the RCA video output for video, and yes, they could do an HDMI since the IPAD supports it, or even VGA, but this is for music, not video, so honestly, the RCA is a plus... BUT WHAT KILLS ME is the fact that the USB port cannot be used in a USB MIDI keyboard. AGAIN, IT WILL NOT WORK WITH A USB KEYBOARD. You need to have a keyboard that has the old school MIDI port, or else it WILL NOT WORK. MIDI port is a MUST. I truly hope they can change the firmware. It's a shame, since even the USB camera adapter of the IPAD supports USB MIDI, and this thing will not. That's why it got a 3 star only. This is basicly my main complaint with it. I also wished that you could use the keyboard while on a different application, like for example, reading a text of PDF with the chords/notes of a song (which I use my ipad for as well), but unfortunately I did not find a way to do this, and I don't think that is possible due to IOs... Lastly, I truly wish they woulg make the bottom of this thing bezeled or something, so you can use an ipap klip, or something that would hold this in a Mic stand or something. What I mean is, if you are playing a keyboard on a keyboard stand for example, where are you going to place this? You can even try a sheet stand, but I would not trust on top of it without being secure... so yeah... nothing is perfect, but NOT BEING ABEL TO USE A USB KEYBOARD!!!! Give me a break, that is just nonsense! What is that USB for then??? The problem is, they advertise that (go look in Alesis website) 'The USB connection on the iO Dock provides MIDI connectivity between the computer and anything connected to the iO Dock.' NOT TRUE. Don't try it, I have tried 6 different keyboards, including ALESIS QX49 and Q49, M-AUDIOS, KORGS, it just will not work. Other than that, which to me is NEW TECHNOLOGY only working with OLD OLD OLD stuff, this thing is amazing! Have fun!

      Comments about Alesis iO Dock Pro Audio Dock for iPad:

      This versitile dock has a lot of great features for only $[$]. The Midi-in is a great asset, esp. for people looking to do techno/dubstep/synth recordings. Some things to keep in mind:-The iPad has to be pushed FIRMLY into the dock. I though I had broken it at first, but it apparently is common for people to need to push incredibly hard.-The Mic Inputs can be VERY noisy. Pre-amp recommended.-There is no XLR OUT, so if you're going to use this as one step in your chain to a DAW, then you're going to need to go 1/4 to XLR or Line-in (1/4in to 1/4in). -The line out volume is on the low end.

          Comments about Alesis iO Dock Pro Audio Dock for iPad:

          Product didn't work. Sent to Alesis for troubleshooting with possibility of replacing it. Numerous back-and-forth emails weren't giving me any idea of a timeframe for either fixing the item or replacing it. I called and found out they threw the item away without informing me. They also don't have any replacements in stock or any way of requesting a replacement.

          The only thing they did was give me a credit for an item yet to be released that is similar to the iO Dock.

              Just as I was about to go out and spend a fair amount of money on a USB microphone so that I could do good quality recordings on my iPad , I was introduced to this product by the staff at B&H. I'm now able to use whichever microphone I like with my iPad with excellent results. This interface together with the Auria DAW application enable me to make very respectable recordings

                  I tried the IO Dock with 3 mikes, Apex, AKG C2000 and Shure SM57. There is always a click and sometimes a noise in the background. I tried this setup with garageBand and TwistedWave. The result is the same.
                  After 15 minutes, I asked for an RMA.
                  The sound is much better with a Tascam mike in the USB port.

                      Great choice of audio interface for those who want versatility.
                      A very positive point is the phantom power for condenser microphones.
                      On the downside, it could say that the build quality could be better, but it is quite satisfactory.

                          The in/out audio/midi ports are very useful, as well as USB out port. But what about USB in jack? I felt this held this product from being exceptional.

                                Apple fixed hiss and distortion symptoms with iOS 5.1. Alesis also put together a video (see below) covering performance tips and gain settings that can resolve the other (more normal) possible causes of hiss that apply to all digital recording setups:• Improper input gain settings (too high or too low).• Improper output (Main and/or Headphone) volume settings (too high or too low).• Hiss or distortion intentionally introduced by the virtual amplifiers inside recording apps (i.e. GarageBand).• Audio skips or distortion caused by processor-intensive activity happening in the background on the iPad (resolved by quitting all other apps and turning ON Airplane Mode)Alesis fixed MIDI hanging notes with their firmware update 1.0.7: http://www.alesis.com/iodock?tt=5For me, the iO Dock is working great with the iPad 2 and iOS 5.1.

                                Everyone should know, as it's never really stated clearly, you CANNOT plug in a keyboard through USB on this. Only old school midi.

                                Why ? I don't know as the apple camera connection kit does it just fine.
                                Other than that, the product is well built and has great connectivity. Except for the one that was the most useful for me.

                                Biggest disappointment ever. I was lucky enough to get a refund from the store.

                                    The iPad dock is amazing. It does everything they say. It recognized my Korg Kontrol 49 MIDI keyboard as a plug and play. Seems to work smoothly with my apps that accept MIDI in, and the XLRs are recognized as audio ins without hassles.

                                    The only big disappointment is that the USB port does not allow USB MIDI in; it's just a way to connect with a computer.

                                    The gain controls for the XLR ins feel a little cheap, and they're not linear; you need to turn them up about 75% to get any volume. The 1/4" guitar in is too tight; I'm concerned I'll damage it removing the cable plug.

                                    But overall the unit does more than I'd expect, even if it cost quite a bit more.

                                        Cant make things any easier to start recording on your Ipad. Replaced 3 other products i was using. And charging your ipad while you use it is a bonus as well.

                                            First let me say this.B & H service is tops. I got a great price and the item arrived two days later. Kutos B & H. However none of the reviews on the Alesis mentioned that it did not work with the new Apple I Pad 2 running OS 5. After searching online Alesis has known about this problem since Nov 2011. Yet they keep selling the unit for I Pad 2. After contacting Alesis I was told I had to wait for the Apple OS 5.1 update to be released soon. Online sources have been waiting for quite some time now. Some beta testers state it doesn't resolve all the issues. I guess I'll have to wait and see. Anyway Alesis has lost a long time customer. NEVER AGAIN,

                                              I've really enjoyed the dock so far. I'm doing some simple recording and using the ipad and dock as an extra synthesizer(animoog etc.), running it through my keyboard amp and it works great. A usb midi import would be nice.

                                                    First of all, it's great, simply great to have so many connections in one place. It's wonderful, and NO OTHER product in the market will give you so much as of NOVEMBER OF 2011. It's all you would expect it to be like you can read in other reviews, but none of the reviews will tell you some flukes, which I am going to. So again, it's AMAZING, and I will only alert you of the not so great things... Many people complain that they only have the RCA video output for video, and yes, they could do an HDMI since the IPAD supports it, or even VGA, but this is for music, not video, so honestly, the RCA is a plus... BUT WHAT KILLS ME is the fact that the USB port cannot be used in a USB MIDI keyboard. AGAIN, IT WILL NOT WORK WITH A USB KEYBOARD. You need to have a keyboard that has the old school MIDI port, or else it WILL NOT WORK. MIDI port is a MUST. I truly hope they can change the firmware. It's a shame, since even the USB camera adapter of the IPAD supports USB MIDI, and this thing will not. That's why it got a 3 star only. This is basicly my main complaint with it. I also wished that you could use the keyboard while on a different application, like for example, reading a text of PDF with the chords/notes of a song (which I use my ipad for as well), but unfortunately I did not find a way to do this, and I don't think that is possible due to IOs... Lastly, I truly wish they woulg make the bottom of this thing bezeled or something, so you can use an ipap klip, or something that would hold this in a Mic stand or something. What I mean is, if you are playing a keyboard on a keyboard stand for example, where are you going to place this? You can even try a sheet stand, but I would not trust on top of it without being secure... so yeah... nothing is perfect, but NOT BEING ABEL TO USE A USB KEYBOARD!!!! Give me a break, that is just nonsense! What is that USB for then??? The problem is, they advertise that (go look in Alesis website) 'The USB connection on the iO Dock provides MIDI connectivity between the computer and anything connected to the iO Dock.' NOT TRUE. Don't try it, I have tried 6 different keyboards, including ALESIS QX49 and Q49, M-AUDIOS, KORGS, it just will not work. Other than that, which to me is NEW TECHNOLOGY only working with OLD OLD OLD stuff, this thing is amazing! Have fun!

                                                        The IO Dock covers every possible base for iPad IO: MIDI in/out, microphone/line/guitar inputs with phantom power and/or adjustable gain, headphone and monitor outputs with independent volume controls, direct monitoring, and more. Everything works perfectly and with zero hassle -- you just slide the iPad into the cradle and it works. Build quality is great.

                                                        There are individual gadgets that cover subsets of this functionality, but it would cost a fortune to get them all and you can't use them all at the same time. This is really the one product to get.

                                                        However, having proper IO on the device has underscored it's limitations for me. For instance, I discovered that the amp models in Garage Band are terrible, yet I can't substitute a different modeler because iPad apps are isolated (outside of heroic measures like copying and pasting rendered tracks between apps). There's no MIDI editing in Garage Band, yet apps that have MIDI editing like Meteor have no built-in MIDI instruments. The Korg iMS-20 is a wonderful synth, but I can't use it in any iPad DAW. So on and so forth. By purchasing the IO Dock I've learned that what I *really* want is a nice lap top with a similar IO interface. :)

                                                        Of course, none of this is the IO Dock's fault. It's a testament to the IO Dock that by addressing every possible IO limitation, it returns focus the platform/software limitations.

                                                            The iO Dock has high quality inputs and outputs. I would compare it to standalone audio interfaces (available from numerous manufacturers). The specifications are available online. Where it really differs is the way the iPad becomes an audio/midi workstation. As more and more applications take advantage of the iPad Core-Midi and high quality audio connectors, this docking station will provide incredible flexibility. Plugging into Garage Band on the iPad and using this as a front end to an audio system is a given, but using the iO Dock as a front end to applications on the PC or Mac is where it really shines. Its ability to send and receive midi commands through the standard midi ports and a USB-midi port opens up the possibilities.
                                                            The iO Dock is sturdy and very well constructed. It is made of plastic, but is well re-enforced and feels like it would protect the iPad from pretty much anything.
                                                            Some have complained that the iO Dock has to be plugged in (with the included 6 volts power transformer) that makes it less portable, but the iO Dock/iPad combination wasn't made to be standalone: it is much more more usefull whith instruments plugged in and when it is plugged into other components. This is a non-issue.

All that is needed now is a new interface that works with multiple inputs at once. I use garageband now, and it is great when i am alone. When i want to use drums mic and guitar together with friends i still need to use a mixer.
