Connect your guitar, bass and MIDI instruments to your iPad.

Digital music-making has never been easier. Owning an iPad makes it easier still, taking it to a whole new level of versatility and portability. StudioConnect gives your iPad: audio in/out, MIDI in/out, and a stereo headphone jack with its own volume control so you can monitor what's going in (or out).

Whether you're a serious musician, a confirmed hobbyist, or a budding composer, you know about MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface). Unlike audio recording, MIDI lets you capture the digital instructions for a musical performance, and then play them back later on a MIDI instrument.

In one compact device for your iPad, StudioConnect combines both the audio and the MIDI hemispheres of the audio world.

Audio In and Out
Plug your guitar into StudioConnect's mono 1/4" instrument jack and play directly into GarageBand or other apps. Or plug a recorder or mixer into StudioConnect's stereo 3.5 mm input jack and connect the whole band to your iPad.

Left- and right-channel RCA plugs give you line-level stereo audio-out. For your headphone there's a separate front-panel 3.5 mm stereo jack with its own volume knob.

MIDI In and Out
For your MIDI controller or drum pad, StudioConnect's rear panel gives you a standard 5-pin DIN MIDI-in port.

For MIDI Out, there's another 5-pin DIN MIDI connector on StudioConnect's rear panel. Connect it to your sequencer, patch bay, or other MIDI gear. This lets you launch your favorite MIDI controller app and use your iPad as a musical instrument.

StudioConnect lets you connect everything for music-making to your iPad, and connect your iPad to everything musical. And as if that weren't enough, it even charges your iPad while you play.

Comments about Griffin StudioConnect with Lightning Connector:

From what time I've had with it, it seems to do everything as advertised. Only one disappointment was its incompatibility with my Ipad to VGA adapter. I wanted to use a VGA monitor to get a bigger display. The Lightning connector from the unit was to go into the pass through on the cable but wouldn't be recognized - both charging and audio. I don't know if this has more to do with the VGA adaptor cable or the StudioConnect. I can go via Airplay through my Apple TV onto my Sony XBR2 which works but because of the resolution of the Ipad (retina 2048x1536) I don't get the full screen. I suppose this is because of the 1920x1080 resolution of the Sony vs the Ipad's 2048x 1536. The VGA 19" monitor had the full screen edge to edge but unfortunately wouldn't work with the StudioConnect/Ipad combination. Haven't tried the MIDI but I'm sure it works fine. I have my guitar into the 1/4" mono and a Yamaha MG82CX mixer in the stereo 3.5mm input at the moment.
