The iSTUDIO iS202 iPad Docking Station is the perfect music production tool for both home studio and live recording. So much more than just a convenient way to recharge your iPad, the iS202 lets you create, produce and perform music using your favorite audio gear and musical instruments. Connectivity is provided for your dynamic and phantompowered condenser mics; a Hi-Z instrument such as an electric guitar or bass; turntable; a wide range of line-level devices (mixers, CD and mp3 players, etc.) – and your MIDI gear. You can also connect an external video monitor or projector, and monitor your project using headphones or a set of high-quality active loudspeakers, such as our MS40 DIGITAL MONITOR SPEAKERS (not included).
Always at the ready, the iS202 makes it easy to unleash your creative spirit by providing access to your iPad’s powerful internal processor, touch-screen interface and the vast array of available apps. A convenient onboard MIDI USB interface allows the transfer of MIDI data to and from your iPad for even more creative possibilities. The iSTUDIO iS202 bridges the gap between your instruments and professional audio devices, for a dynamically creative environment that will continue to grow as even more apps become available.
The road-ready iS202 is the ideal way to capture your inspiration on the tour bus, at the park – or by the campfire. The built-in battery compartment holds eight 1.5-Volt “AA” batteries (not included), so you can power the iSTUDIO even when you’re off -the-grid. Now you can record, perform, or craft and create music in virtually any situation or location.
Thanks to our optional P16-MB Mounting Bracket, you can easily attach your iS202 to a microphone, music or drum stand – so it’s always right where you need it. The high-quality steel bracket securely holds your iS202 and iPad at the perfect angle, putting control of all parameters right at your fingertips!
The iS202 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 be connected directly to the iSTUDIO without the need for a DI box thanks to the built-in Hi-Z switch, which also allows you to perform and record straight into your amplifier and FX modeling apps. We’ve also included a stereo Aux Input, so you can connect a wide range of line-level sources, even a turntable – perfect for DJs, or for archiving your precious vinyl collection.
Recording has Never Been Easier
In the old days when you wanted to record the band, you needed lots of gear and cables, or you had to spend gobs of money renting studio time. The iS202 makes it easy to record and edit your projects, letting you concentrate on your performance and creativity. Just connect your mixer’s outputs to iS202, open your favorite recording app and hit the button, nothing is easier. You can also use the built-in MIDI capability to control your external keyboards, samplers, drum machines and sound modules.
We've Got Connections
Balanced stereo 1/4" TRS outputs are provided for connecting to your studio monitors, PA systems and much more. Musicians can monitor tracks via the dual independently-controllable phones outputs, which are equipped with our adjustable direct monitoring controls for the ideal balance between incoming and playback signals, or through a pair of active studio monitors. Two footswitch connectors are also provided for application-defined remote control of your input selection and an expression pedal.
