At the 2012 NAMM Show, Behringer introduced a new iPad dock for musicians, the iStudio iPad Dock.
The iStudio features two combination XLR – 1/4″ inputs, each with its own Gain control and switchable phantom power for use with condenser microphones. These inputs will accept analog signals from virtually any piece of audio gear including amps, mixers and external preamps. A guitar or electric bass can also be connected directly to the iStudio, thanks to the built-in Hi-Z switch.
iStudio provides balanced stereo 1/4″ TRS outputs for connecting to your studio monitors, PA systems and much more. Two footswitch connectors are available for application-defined remote control of input selection and an expression pedal. If video is part of your production, iStudio’s RCA composite connector works with standard video projectors, as well as television and computer monitors.
