This product is brilliant - I can use it to control Omnisphere through
the ipad app and also to record sound straight onto my PC.
No probs at all- It is really easy to slide my ipad 2 in and out of
it and the controlls are all located in sensible places.
I had the unit running correctly in 5 minutes.
It's much easier to record loops into Ableton than create
arrangements in garage, Rmx etc. Fairdeal shipped it free in 48 hours.

5.0 out of 5 stars iOS 5.1 fixes the issue. 9 April 2012
Hi all, just to let everyone know Alesis have fixed the issues people were having with their docks with the help of Apple.
Update to iOS5.1 and all you problems should be re-solved.
Happy music making!!!

Bought this as wanted to do more music wise with my ipad.midi in out is great much better than the irig which was pretty hit and miss.the microphone input is brilliant used it to record a mates perfomance with auria crystal clear.if youve got a mixer you can record from a synth to the mixer to the ios dock.so far very satisfied ,i hear this product was a bit bugged out with earlier updates but no problems I think now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous! 15 April 2013
Verified Purchase
Ignore all the negative reviews! Software issues are all sorted and works fully!

Audio quality is top draw and my condensers with phantom power sounded very very good. All the controls are in a good place with special mention of the headphone input, headphone level control and main output control being on the right, very useful when switching from external speakers to headphones.

Also worth a mention, the USB on the left, I have read, doesn't work with USB keyboards, which I can't confirm. However the midi in/out works fully and I have also used the USB to use midi instruments with my laptop (which doesn't have midi) and was very useful!

There are other products out there, more portable ones at that, but none have as many features AND charge your iPad too! With the iPad docked it fits comfortably into a laptop sleeve!

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good product. 22 Nov 2012

This turns your iPad into a proper studio tool. Make full use of all those amazing and cheap apps. I looked at getting a decent midi connection and good audio in and outs cheaper but this looked to be the better option and certainly more pleasing and tidier.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't upgrade to iOS7! 29 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
I was loving this dock - it did have the occasional crackle that you read about on other reviews, but a switch off and on usually fixed it. Very excited then to learn that the iOS7 upgrade gave 16 tracks on Garageband. The only problem is the dock doesn't work with iOS7 - well, it did, once, but it hasn't since. Or 135 down the drain. Any advice, Alesis? Apple? Hello? Anyone?

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesnt work + Worst treatment of customers ever 14 Jan 2012
If you have updated your iPad to ios5 this DOESNT WORK!!! And that's not even the worst bit. Alesis are keeping it quiet and still getting people to buy a product that is unfit for purpose, whilst fobbing off their upset customers with vague and insulting cut and paste replies.... Look up 'io dock hiss' and find out the truth!. Whoever is running their customer service dept has serious issues....

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware 29 Nov 2011
By Ben
Please note that this device currently does not work. There is an audio problem with the device and Alesis are being less than helpful in trying to resolve.

Please see [...]

Mind you if you wish to spend 140 on a charger, go right ahead
