Griffin has introduced StudioConnect with Lightning, an updated version of their all-in-one audio interface for the iPad, now compatible with the new iPad (4th generation) and iPad mini.
StudioConnect provides connectivity for guitars, stereo audio, MIDI-In and MIDI-Out as well as a Lightning charging dock in one device. It also features line-level RCA stereo output.
Here are the details:
- Audio in and out
- Audio In – Plug instrument in through a mono 1/4? jack or plug a mixer into StudioConnect’s stereo 1/8” (3.5mm) jack.
- Audio Out – Left and right line-level RCA plugs. The 1/8” (3.5mm) stereo headphone jack, with its dedicated volume knob, helps monitor what’s going in and out.
- MIDI in and out
- MIDI In – Connect a MIDI controller through a standard 5-pin DIN MIDI-in port.
- MIDI Out – A second 5-pin DIN connector accepts a sequencer, patch bay or other MIDI gear, allowing the iPad and MIDI apps to act as a MIDI controller.
The updated StudioConnect with Lightning is priced at $149.99 and will be available Spring 2013.
