Anyone using Griffin StudioConnect or Focusrite iTrack Solo

edited October 2012 in Equipment

Still in search of all inclusive audio interface to run Loopy through current iPad 3. Spent the morning on the phone with a "recording specialist" from musicians friend and Apple support rep. Both very helpful and patient. Some answers: Focusrite will run ios6 update with ipad3, not certain with the Griffin. Both units have signal level line out so good for live application. Griffin has midi in/ out but no xlr and charges where the Focusrite does not. The Apple rep seemed to have greater confidence that the Focusrite would be a safer choice. The Griffin appears to more complete if if you don't mind taking a 1/4 inch out from your mic preamp for vocals. The Tascam iu2 and Behringer are not available at all. I may just buy the Griffin, see how it behaves with midi and return if it doesn't live up to billing. Have a 2 year Apple support warranty so I'll try to share any appropriate info. Anyone using these setups chime in please.


  • Just thought I'd chime in that Sweetwater has the Griffin Studio Connect for $129 ($20.99 cheaper than Musicians Friends)
    I haven't purchased an I/O interface for my iPad (3) yet. Have been searching the Internet for what's available and any reviews from users. I'll be interested in you opinion.
    IMHO - not having MIDI I/O is worse than not having XLR.
