    Hello there,
    I have had my eye on the Alesis IOS dock for a while now. I never thought about asking musicians here on iPad Forum if you have and use one?
    I have heard some horror stories about the iPad 3rd. generation not really fitting properly and that you have to shim it and sometimes it doesn't work.
    Can anybody elaborate on this?
    I would like to know if it Is worth the money to record my band with.
    Thanks

    no problem if you use the alesis ipad 3 adapter, it becomes part of the i/o dock once installed. I have two of them, however I've just bought the ipad4 so now i'm screwed because of the lightning connector

    That blows.
    So can you tell me when you were using it, were you happy with the all around functionality?
    Did you mainly use it with GarageBand or something different.
    I appreciate your input.

    it worked well with Garageband. there's another App called Auria. Search for the Drumagog site, choose the forums tab and select Auria.
    there are some posts there that talk about the Alesis unit. The midi worked with most ipad instruments.

    What size Is the USB input on the dock? It's looks like it's that little square side, rather than the standard pc size.

    Well my midi keyboard doesn't have the same size USB jack on both ends. The end that goes IMO the keyboard is a smaller, more square size. The other end is the same size that was fit into the wall plug-in of the ipad or iPhone charger.
