As the Gorillaz recorded an album entirely on an iPad, it's no surprise that the device is capable of making music. The Alesis iO Dock makes the experience a lot easier and more convenient for musicians.
The iPad usually requires special adapters to record with real instruments. With the Alesis iO Dock, you can just plug in using regular music cables without the hassle of buying additional accessories. Bands can easily record their practice sessions, use the device as a metronome or play back audio when necessary. For guitarists and bass players, it's easy to toggle back and forth between effects, which is always beneficial in studios. There's also the ability to connect the iO Dock to monitors for critical listening or to PA systems in performance settings.
These are just a few of the promising features that the Alesis iO Dock provides for musicians who are serious about music.
