Well Done!

Comments about IK Multimedia iRIG MIDI interface:

Overall, well done and thank you!
Charging while using an iPAD is a very good feature. The charging cable is short by intent. In some cases I have read that longer cables used for charging have damaged the devcie, or result in not charging the device. AS a suggestion to the mfr. I would add a Startup Guide or enhance the User's Manual. You'll need to download IK's Recorder and you'll most likely need to remap some midi seetings for V-Drums. Better instructions would certainly be of help for the novice midi user.
The connector seems to be of a lesser quality than that of Apple's. Everything else is fine.
The price is a bit high, but tolerable. I purchased the full version of Sample Tank seperately.

cool toy

Comments about IK Multimedia iRIG MIDI interface:

Just know what you are buying and you will be satisfied with the irig. It's really not something i would take out amd use as my sole instrument with a midi controller in a live situation. Sample tank is glitchy as hell and just not that reliable. As an adapter it has worked ok so far despitea few glitches here and there. Its a fun toy to have in the home studio.

feels like it would break pretty easily if tossed into a gig bag and gigged with repeatedly

Mixed Feelings

Pros

  • Compact
  • Easy To Use

Cons

  • Needs Power

Best Uses

  • Home use

Comments about IK Multimedia iRIG MIDI interface:

The good is that if you are only using it at home it works as advertised.
The bad is that when you are in an app like Garageband and you go to another app, you have to unplug the device and re-plug to get it to work again.
For this reason using it live makes it of very limited use.
You will also need a midi extender adapter as the supplied midi cables are only about 5ft or so. I also don't see these cables lasting the test of time. Very thin, giving a "consumer" quality feel.
Also for live use you always have to have these cables coming out of the iRig, power included.
The beauty of the iPad is having a wireless device,this takes that away.
So the home consumer is definitely the target market for this product.

    Comments about IK Multimedia iRIG MIDI interface:

    I have the new Ipad 4 so make sure you get the firewire to 30 pin adapter (original from apple, my knockoff adapter only charged).
    Switching from one midi program to another on the ipad required the ipad to be reset for the device to work.
    It does work and record midi from keys to ipad. And it does work as a midi controller,but it was not plug and play ease.
