Musicians take note at what’s new at CES

As you know, Griffin is a Nashville, Tennessee based company. Living in Music City, it only makes sense that we continue to create innovative products for musicians.

StudioConnect for iPad

StudioConnectStudioConnect for iPad combines both audio and MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) recording into one compact device that also simultaneously charges your iPad. StudioConnect takes recording music on the iPad to an entirely new level giving aspiring musicians a chance to produce professional sounding recordings.

With StudioConnect the audio in and out is simple:

  • Audio In – Complete with its own gain control, plug in your instrument in through a mono 1/4″ jack or plug a mixer into a stereo 3.5mm jack
  • Audio Out – Left and right line-level RCA plugs. Also a 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack with its own volume knob helps monitor what’s going in and out

MIDI in and out is equally straightforward with StudioConnect:

  • MIDI In – the MIDI controller connects through a standard 5-pin DIN MIDI-in port
  • MIDI Out – Utilizing a second 5-pin DIN MIDI, connect a sequencer, sound module or other MIDI gear allowing the iPad to act as a MIDI controller when combined with a MIDI App
