AudioLink II - iPad audio interface for connecting mics, guitars, line level and more!

We just tested the AudioLink II with the Apple Camera Connection Kit and it works really well with the iPad 2!  The AudioLink II is a USB audio interface with an XLR input for microphones, a 1/4" guitar input as well as RCA line level inputs for connecting keyboards, CD players, tape decks, turntables, etc.

This means you can record from your microphones, guitar, keyboards, etc. directly onto your iPad into apps such as GarageBand.  If you have been looking for an affordable way to use your existing gear to record into your iPad, the AudioLink II is the solution.

Simply connect the AudioLink II USB audio interface to the Apple Camera Connection kit.  Load any recording app, such as GarageBand, and connect your mic, guitar, turntable or keyboard directly to your iPad through the AudioLink II.

The AudioLink II even provides phantom power to condenser mics so you can use your own condenser mics with your iPad.  However, the iPad can't seem to provide enough power for phantom power in all cases, so you may need to power the AudioLink II through a 5v power supply (not included.)

We hope to have a video up soon demonstrating the AudioLink II working with the iPad 2.

You can view a 3D overview of the AudioLink II while you wait for the video.
