Winter NAMM 2013 - iConnectivity:

This is the first solution I've seen to the problem of taking apps running on your iPad/iPhone and bringing them into the DAW without having to get an audio interface involved. These two new iConnectivity units as well as providing plenty of MIDI IO options also offer Audio Pass Through - iConect MIDI 4+ features four MIDI io, 4 USB host inputs - for controllers or iOS devices, plus MIDI over USB and RTP ethernet MIDI  - plenty of options $249

iConnnect MIDI 2+ has 2 MIDI ports, two USB connections for iOS devices etc.

Both of these offer audio pass through and will show up as an audio device with full digital audio into the host computer. You can put these together as an aggregate device under OS X to bring it all together into your studio system. Nice.

This looks like the answer to all the interfacing problems for the i pad .Especially getting the audio digitally into the computer. ..Although it looks like the usb connectors on the front have the wrong end of the USB plug .

@Rapscallion: not really...

iPad+CameraConnector|USB A-type..cable..USB B-type|iConnectivity thingy

Same thing with Mac/PC|USB A-type..cable..USB B-type|iConnectivity thingy

I think the guy at the booth wasn't able to answer Nick's question about the "audio clock".

How will it deal with unmatched sample rates?

I'm imagining that it'll show up on either end (PC/Mac/iOS) as a USB audio interface, but will it have a unique global sample rate (set by any of the connected computers) or one per USB port?!

i use a novation x-station which has a spdif output. i just connect that into my audio interface and its good to go. never had any sync issues in general use and i set my system to listen to its sync signal when recording anything off it to avoid problems. works like a charm. and great too for the x-station, discontinued hardware that still has a very useful purpose.

i have a friend who is going to let me borrow his access virus ti and im going to try that with the ipad too... i dont know how the routing abilities work on the TI series but it would be cool to use the spdif IO to set up an effects loop out of my DAW... imagine a fully digital signal path to the ipad, using Moog's filtatron app as an effects send.
