    How would I use the “8-track recording”? Will there be an add on for the doc connector, that will let me plug in microphones?

    Until there is a good way to get audio in and out of the iPad, it’s going to be an enigma. I would be more excited if I could hook up a couple of real mics to it.

    Does anyone know? Is there a way to take Pamela recorded calls from Skype and get them into an iPAD?

    I installed this about 10 mins ago, and I must say I’m really impressed.

    Just as a live instrument toolkit, the guitar effects and keyboard sounds are very very cool – A midi keyboard into the USB adaptor is a whole lot of fun.

    Haven’t even tried recording yet, and it’s blown me away..
