There are hundreds of recording apps in the App Store. There are single-track recorders, eight track recorders, and even 48 track recorders. Some, like Auria and Logic Pro X are professional-grade digital recorders that make capturing individual instruments easy, but if you have a multi-channel input device, it would be way better. Griffin Technology has just announced the upcoming launch of StudioConnect HD, which makes it possible for you to plug multiple instruments into your iPad at the same time for multi-track recording.


StudioConnect HD is an all-in-one audio interface for multi-track recording so that you can record multiple tracks simultaneously on your iPhone or iPad. It is made from rugged, weighted metal and features a charging platform. You can select either the Lightning or 30-pin connector. Both models come with a USB cable for connecting to a Mac running OS X. The device accommodates Core Audio recording apps for iPad, as well as Mac OS X based Digital Audio Workstations.

“With the continuing impact of mobile devices on the music world, we’ve raised the bar for portable recording interfaces that help musicians and producers work whenever and wherever inspiration strikes,” says Ethan Opelt, Audio Line Manager at Griffin Technology. “StudioConnect HD is an intuitive, streamlined product that encourages creativity.”


StudioConnect HD features:

  • Two “/XLR combo inputs with individual Gain control, Pad switch, 48v Phantom Power and Signal/Clip LED indicator
  • USB MIDI and 5-pin MIDI support
  • TRS 1/4″ balanced out for monitors
  • Dedicated Monitor and Headphones volume controls
  • Compatibility with iOS (30 pin & Lightning) and OS X (USB)
  • Conveniently holds and charges iPad

Griffin Technology will launch StudioConnect HD in the Fall of 2014 for $199.99. Visit the company’s website for more information.
