Alesis has introduced the iO Mix, a new docking station that turns your iPad into a 4-Channel recording studio.

The Alesis iO Mix lets you mix and record four channels of audio directly into GarageBand or other compatible Core Audio apps, turning the iPad into a multitouch portable studio.

Around the back, iO Mix lets you connect microphones, instruments, speakers, headphones and more to your iPad, which could make it a great audio podcasting workstation.

    Alesis also has one that is just an interface called the iO Dock Pro.
    and Mackie also has the DL1608 ipad mixer, if you need more inputs.

    Both of those use the iPad for the sliders though. I think I like this set up more. I’ve been looking for a good mobile setup. Using this with a headphone splitter and my headset mics could work very well. (Depending on price point of course.)

    Is this still current? I’m looking either just the interface or an alternative if available.
