I’ve been thinking about this for a while now, and if you follow me on Twitter you may have heard me rant about it a while back. Right now, with an iPad Camera Connection Kit ($30, even less if you get only the USB connector on ebay – just make sure it’s official) and a powered USB hub (give or take $25 new) you can connect just about any of the gear that you already have to your iPad. Some of which you can even connect without a hub. I just feel like a lot of the major ‘iPad compatible’ gear is drastically lacking at least one important feature. The Akai SynthStation 49 drastically lacks knobs and sliders, the iO Dock doesn’t work with USB MIDI controllers unless you’ve got a computer in between it and the controller, or unless you want to do all of this, ect… What do you guys think? Is there any iPad specific gear that you’re considering? or using? Or is it all just marketing hype? Leave a comment below!
