Excellent topic and I am sure the iPad 3 is more than capable than iPad 2. Now I have ANOTHER iPad interest to invest in! Cheers!

iO Dock is a neat piece of Hardware. Only thing missing seems to be a proper user Manual and a digital in/out facility. The Quick Start guide supplied is enough to get you going, I suppose, but I want to know more especially the specs of the various connections and suggestions on compatible apps. Alesis have really fallen down on documentation for this device, but it obviously has potential. I haven't made any recordings yet and will report more when I have. Still waiting for suggestions on good multitrack apps. Studio Mini XL looked promising but appears to have no pan facility and you have to export tracks via iTunes!
I really want to be able to connect the iPad to say my PC to ttransfer the WAV files for mastering and CD burning, but iO Dock only has audio and MIDI out.
Yes Garageband for ease of use and Meteor Multitrack if you want to dive into real DAW recording. Both offer tons of sounds to work with and are very exciting to use. Good luck.
Things are getting bright on the iPad recording front. I'm now using the new Apogee Mic and it is amazing. The first pure digital mic that by-passes the iPads internal audio converters and instead uses Apogees world renowned 24 bit converters @ 48khz and yes the iPad can record at 48khz if the imput is direct like this mic. This now puts 2 very pure digital devices that should support almost any recording situation, the Apogee Jam and Mic. Also, with the release of Auria in the next week will bring the ipad even closer to a real computer DAW. As well multichannel input recording is becoming the norm in iPad recording apps an not only the software but the hardware as well with products from RME, Focusrite, PreSonus, Alesis, Yamaha and more leading the way. Now that the pro tools (pardon the pun) are available all that is needed now are young and fresh oroducers,writers and performers to use these tools and take them into the future of modern music. So post your links to songs produced entirely using ONLY your iPad for the world to hear it's potential. I'm working on that now. Cheers and good recordings.
I decided to buy Studio Mini XL as I liked the format of the home screen: 8 channels with virtual faders, coming from using a multitrack hard disk recorder, it's a familiar interface. You can also view the recorded tracks horizontally as in a DAW. You can record in stereo with the Alesis dock and panning is promised in a future update of the App. The Alesis is solidly made and seems to offer all facilities except digital out. Waiting to give it a proper workout and will report back.
I have bought an ipad for making music but i need to do things a specific way. Here is the issue.
I want to use an app on the ipad (most likely some kind of sequencer or DAW) whereby i can record guitar, vocals and possibly other instruments.
I have recently bought the irig midi to enable me to also use midi instruments to get sounds INTO some kind of app.
But my biggest issue, is that whatever app i am going to use (such as garageband or some other equivilent) needs to be able to give Midi out via the leads in the irig Midi.
My need for this is because i work with a producer in a studio. I want to build tracks on the ipad and then take them into the studio, use the Irig midi to export the whole song via the midi out lead to the studio equipment. Then we can work on the song further at the studio (not via ipad).
Please help me with what app i need to do this. I bought garageband and isequence but not sure either are going to help me do this.
Maybe the answers are staring me in the face but I really appreciate any help anyone can give me
I am in a wind quintet...I know, not sexy like the more modern stuff...but I'd still like to make recordings of our music, on the iPad. Where does one start?
