The Real Deal

I use this for my solo act. Let me make it clear at this time I am not using this as a recording dock at all but I do plan to record some of my live shows with this so that will be a plus. What I am currently using this for is pro audio stereo out from the lightning connector of my iPad. Sound is much better than from the headphone jack I used to use. I also use the midi out. This enables me to use standard cables keeps my iPad tucked away safe inside the iS202. I bought the braket that works with this and its all good. Best option for me and I am sure many of you will have the same experience. I also use the headphone out when programming the automation on my software Setlist Maker. This is nice and convenient as well. One word of caution, you won't be able to play music via the RCA inputs on the unit...that only works as an input if you are recording. Good Luck

Works like magic

Ive incorperated the IOS in my home recording and this device is quiet and works perfectly. A midi keyboard and GARAGE BAND (dont laugh) ,amazingly accurate. I use a Behringer Mixer, DP03 Tascam, M Audio interface into my DAW, useing SONAR. Everything talks to everything nicely and didnt break the bank. This is202 made all the adaptors and flusterations go away.

Best and Most for the price!

Having reviewed all of these types of ios devices for the ipad 2, I think that this is the best, at least for me. Some folks have complained about noises or other oddities, but I have had none. What I wanted most was the interfacing: Traditional Midi In and Out jacks plus usb, the phantom power on the mic jacks, the combo mic jacks, headphone jack with volume. Check out the back of the unit for all of the connectivity that is there. I do with it had a better video jack since that connector is pretty much out of vogue now - just think if it had a vga connector! But, at least the composite video jack is THERE which is more than any others have. BTW, Mitch Gallagher provides a pretty good video demonstration of it. Some folks have reported a bit of difficulty when inserting the unit into the connector port. When I slide it in, I merely press gently down on the ipad on the edge where it makes contact and have had no problems with it. Also, the power supply is included when you buy the product (as well as working on batteries for complete field recording!). Currently, I am using Auria DAW with it as well as Garage Band and a few other high quality apps. In total, I recommend this unit. Don't forget the Sweetwater free 2 year extended warranty and free shipping, always the best! Finally, check out the prices on eBay for kicks - doesn't make sense when you can buy it new with all of the advantages from Sweetwater...go figure!

The iS202 is first rate, fun and functional.

Behringer's iS202 is an affordable solution for interfacing your iPad into a recording environment. It’s I/O capability is all you could ever ask for. Every balanced jack, back-lit button and rotary knob has good form, feels firm and and is fully functional. I can’t find any faults with this well built, terrific sounding device, not one. It’s fabulous!

The IS202 is fantastic!

After trying some others, I think the Behringer IStudio is the best option under $500. I can connect about anything I want to my IPad with it, and the level controls are great and right on the front where they ought to be. I've tested it with USB keyboards, Guitars & Basses, Condensor & Dynamics Mics all running into Auria or Cubasis on my IPad4 using a Apple lightning adapter. Everything works terrific and there is plenty of headroom with no noise that I can detect. You can spend a lot more for a lot worse quality and versatility. I definitely recommend this interface.
