    Hello,

    Not sure if this is the right forum or not....

    I was wondering if there is any accessory / app combo that would allow the iPad to record audio via a line in.

    What I want to be able to do is plug a DJ mixer into the iPad and then to be able to record a mix to it.

    I have an app for recording audio but it only works on the built in microphone.

    Any ideas?

    There's a device called iRig that works with AmpliTube. It allows you to plug a guitar in your iPad. If that's possible then you can plug just about anything. Look them up in the app store. Here is a link to their site.

    You're wrong. The headset jack accepts headset with microphone, so it has also a line in contact. The description of the accessory clearly states that you can use it to connect a microphone or as a line in jack: "You can use quality external microphone (mono), or make line in (mono) recording through microphone jack"

    Thanks for the info. My only worry about this device is that it would record in mono... I suppose it's not the end of the world but it would be nice if it did record in stereo.

    As for the iRig, so if I got that and plugged the mixer into it, would I be able to record off any app or just with the iRig one?
    The app I downloaded is called WavePad. I can't see any options other than recording off the built in mic, but it's possible the iRig or whatever else I used would tie over this default?

    Thanks for the help guys

    It is unreasonable to expect you can make stereo recordings through the audio jack because of harware limitations.
    I see the iRig is connected through the audio jack so it has to be mono only.
    There is line in (stereo) capability through the syc port.
    If there is any adapter that is connected to the sync port then you can reasonable expect stereo recording.

    The iRig is connected through the audio jack so there is no way you can make stereo recording through that.
    The 30-pin sync port has line in (stereo) capability so if there is an adapter that plugs into the sync port you can reasonably expect recording in stereo.

    iRig is meant for guitars and most of them are mono. It's also meant to be used with AmpliTube.

    Hmmm, I think this tool is more computer oriented. Quoting from the page you link:

    Streaming Music Recorder is designed to record any sound playing through your computer. With it, you can easily record streaming music, internet radio, online audio from any online sites like YouTube, Yahoo! music, Napster, Imeem.com, BBC radio, AOL radio etc. After you record streaming audio, the file can be converted to your desired format like WAV, MP3, AAC, WMA etc, which are completely compatible with your mobile devices. Streaming Music Recorder is what you are looking for, now you will have no worries about how to record streaming music, as long as you can hear it, you can record it. Do not miss your favorite music, just record it.

    Bolds are mine.

    I would use a usb powered i/o audio interface thru the iPad camera connection kit. There are cheap ones in the musical market.
    From your mixer outs to the interface and to any suitable pro app, Garage Band maybe?



    Will investigate on this later, since I don't record my stuff, just play live.


    Cheers.
