Turn Your iPad into Your Studio!

With an all-in-one Griffin StudioConnect iPad docking interface you can easily connect all of your favorite music gear to your Apple iPad. This remarkably simple, sleek, and ergonomically designed iOS interface gives you the audio and MIDI I/O you need to produce music on your iPad. At the same time, the StudioConnect doubles as a conventional iPad dock, supplying your iPad with power and keeping it propped up at an ideal working angle. If you're looking for a way to get the most out of your music-making iOS apps, then you need a Griffin StudioConnect interface.

Griffin StudioConnect Docking iOS Interface at a Glance:
  • All of the analog audio I/O you need
  • MIDI I/O lets you hook up your keyboards and controllers
  • Dock-style setup keeps your iPad charged
All of the analog audio I/O you need

Whether you play guitar, keys, or some other instrument, you'll find the I/O you need to record built into the Griffin StudioConnect iOS interface. That's because Griffin outfitted their StudioConnect with both a 1/8" stereo line input and an instrument-ready 1/4" input. That gives you the freedom to plug in your axe, hook up your keys, or even patch in your favorite mic pre and record straight to your iPad. The StudioConnect even gives you dedicated volume controls for both your headphones and your pro-style studio monitors.

MIDI I/O lets you hook up your keyboards and controllers

Audio I/O is great for recording, but if you want to take full advantage of all of those cool iOS virtual instruments, you'll need a way to hook up your MIDI controller keyboard. Good thing Griffin gave the StudioConnect a full set of conventional 5-pin MIDI I/O. Just hook your MIDI keyboard up to the StudioConnect, launch your favorite Core MIDI compliant iOS soft synth, and you're ready to perform and write music on your iPad.

Dock-style setup keeps your iPad charged

Here's one other thing that makes the Griffin StudioConnect even more useful than your typical iOS interface: it doubles as a dock. That means even as you record, sequence, and play back music with your StudioConnect, your iOS device is happily charging away in the background. This may not sound impressive at first, but at Sweetwater we know it's a major bonus, especially during those longer music-making sessions, when running out of battery can ruin your day. What's more, because of its flexible design, you can use the Griffin StudioConnect with your iPad, your iPhone, or your iPod Touch.

  • An easy way to turn your iPad, iPhone, or other iOS device into a portable recording studio
