iPad as a sound module.

I like to use my iPads synth apps in my productions. Bought a Mellotron app with great .....eh Mellotron sounds. With a interface with midi and audio in/out is this possible? Anyone use the iPad iPhone this way?

i know a lot of musicians using iPads as synths/samplers, including myself. Many of them even not bothering with external interfaces.

I just wrote a review of the iConnectMIDI2+. It works great.

I use my iPad2 with an Alesis iO Dock, for audio/ midi I/O.

I treat it like an external sound module, the iO Dock is only 16bit A/D.

To my ears the audio stands up with the hardware synths I've owned.

I will probably upgrade to one of the new ones soon and I have to find a new audio, midi solution.

Yes.

I started a thread about using the iPad with full audio/MIDI/DAW integration recently you might find interesting.

Only some apps support MIDI out, but you may well only want MIDI in, which every iOS instrument i've used so far supports.
