The Alesis IO MIX 4-Channel Recorder for iPad turns an iPad into a portable studio capable of recording multiple microphones or instruments directly into GarageBand or any other compatible Core Audio app. All the basic connections are provided, including four combo XLR-1/4" input jacks and balanced stereo 1/4" outputs.
There are no dongle connections or USB cables needed since the iPad integrates seamlessly within the familiar mixing console setup and is completely enclosed and secure. Further, it allows for connecting virtually any piece of recording gear to an iPad - microphones, instruments, speakers, headphones and more.
Each input channels features trim, channel gain, pan and low and high EQ controls located on the front of the unit. High-pass filters are available on each channel to eliminate low-frequency interference in live mixing and recording situations. Switchable 48V phantom will power condenser microphones, while a guitar-direct switch makes guitar recording easy. A switchable limiter delivers clip-free recordings.
With the iPad in place, the combo is the perfect portable studio. Not only that, access to other audio or multimedia apps is always available, while wireless audio playback is possible using Bluetooth enabled speakers. A video output makes it perfect for everything, from presentations and corporate meetings to home entertainment and live performance visuals.
