    Hi ! Is there any way to get stere audio from line output to iPad2 ? What i want to do is to use iPad2 to record our bands live performances and rehearsals while "on the road". I know there is and extra accessory to connect guitar to iPad2, but stereo line input should be a standard input for - well - anything....

    TY

    The iPad does not have a line-in connection, so you have to rely on external hardware to connect it. The iRig should do the job.

    iRig is not line level (its for guitar or bass) and its not stereo.

    Hey, did you ever find a good solution for your stereo-in problem? I'm going through similar frustration.

    Does the headphone/mic port even support stereo input? What are you capturing from anyway? A stereo mic? A mixing desk? You might need something to connect via the dock connector. You can get a sort of multitrack dock that the iPad slides into and you can plug whatever you like into it (within reason). There's one called an iO Dock from Alesis.

    However, I'd suggest that the iPad isn't really the best man for the job here anyway. Have you tried Zoom Handy recorders? I have an H1, which records to SD via very decent stereo condenser mics or 3.5mm line in.

    Well, the ipad is on the scene and I'm determined to make it work. Check out the guitarjack from Sonoma Wire Works./

    Apparently there are a couple of compatible apps that will do stereo. BTW, any headphone jack is a tip-ring-sleeve (stereo) but this gizmo uses the bottom digital port. What do you think? Dana

    BTW, I've got an Alesis IO Dock sitting beside me right now that is destined to be returned. It's a cool little unit for recording one track at a time, but again, no stereo input.

    Alesis has no stereo in? That's disappointing!

    The Alesis does have stereo input you just need an app that allows stereo recording.

    Slightly off topic Apps4 but do you know what has happened to the people/person who developed the mellotron apps? I've been hoping they'd update to core midi so I could link a keyboard controller but after announcing they would be doing so a year or so ago it all went quiet.
