suddenly I understand, very clearly, what hamei was bitching about throughout all those years. Scary.

sky: keep staring at it. How do you filter out ipad autocorrection errors on a thinkPad?

One useful difference between ipad 1 and 2 is that the vga out in 2 supports mirroring whereas in 1 it is only a couple apps that can use it.

Not directly germane to iPad2 or stinky animated gifs, but WTH.

I just got my Jam USB audio adapter for guitar and used it with GarageBand amplifier and stompbox page, it's awesome! I sent a copy gift of GB to my friend who just got an iPad2 and he showed me AmpKit+, a stomp box and reamp modeling app for iDevices! Man I never imagined my drawer jammed full of stompboxes (oh! StompBOXEN, eh...) would ever be replaced by my phone! Crazy stuff. You can get a 24 STEREO track recorder for your iPad (Multitrack DAW) now...sheesh. Incredible. If I knew I could eventually gig with that instead of a dolly stacked with effects racks I would have kept up with it. :)

there are several guitar adapters; but only two types. The USB adapters like the Apogee JAM (http://www.apogeedigital.com/products/jam.php). Also coming is the Mic (http://www.apogeedigital.com/products/mic.php). Which use USB 2.0 Audio channel for transport. Then there's the Mic input types like iRig or Peavey AmpKit, etc...

there are two issues the may or may not effect you; detectable latency in the input to output of the system, and sound quality. I believe the Apogee USB has a beter audio chain, however, being USB there maybe more latency in this path. whatever the details, it's damn fine technology to avail yourself of!

Lastly, it's cheap compared to an all hardware alternative :)

Send him a link to http://www.jasuto.com too. I posted this in another thread to Pete. It's crazy ma, I love it. I'm getting an amplink kit just to be able to put my guitar through it.

The apogee one is very nice!

update: I purchased the AmpLink to see what it was like; it's cheap at 1/3 the price of the Jam, and uses an audio input like Microphone, or line in. The plus side is there is little to no latency, and you can use it on iOS machines that are pre-4.3 (or whatever the version that included USB audio). However, there is a significant noise floor associated with this input method, even with a noise gate the noise rides through the guitar. If you can afford it, go with the Jam it's compatible with iPhone, iPod, iPad, and Mac too! The sound is great, and there's little or no noise. for recorded projects, you can offset the latency if it bothers you. it's less that 100ms AFAICT.

I'm looking forward to the Mic too! BTW Blue makes a nice stereo Microphone for IOS too http://the-gadgeteer.com/2011/03/04/mikey-for-iphone-and-ipod-touch http://www.bluemic.com/mikeyforipod/. I'm picking up a Blue Mikey this week.

thanks for the follow up sky :) how do you usually get your recordings out of the pad?

we talked about pushing/pulling files from cloudy parts like iDisk, DropBox or god@heaven.com

is there a way for the ipad to talk to a netwreck HD (inside a home LAN) yet? say a TimeCapsule, NAS or any other badass acronym?
