Griffin Introduces StudioConnect with Lightning, Industry's First Music Creation Accessory with Lightning Connector

Griffin Technology is rolling out new music accessories for iOS, including the StudioConnect with Lightning, DJ Connect, Mic Stand Mount and MicConnect at CES.

"GarageBand has given musicians of all talents the ability to create studio quality music at a fraction of the cost of a recording studio," says Ethan Opelt, Line Manager of Griffin's Audio category. "With our lineup of music accessories, artists can easily connect their instruments to a digital audio interface and create on the go."

Leading the lineup is StudioConnect with Lightning, Griffin's popular all-in-one audio interface for music creation on the iPad, now compatible with the new iPad (4th generation) and iPad mini. StudioConnect provides connectivity for guitars, stereo audio, MIDI-In and MIDI-Out as well as a Lightning charging dock in one compact device. It also features line-level RCA stereo output and stereo headphone output with separate volume control. With StudioConnect, digital music-making has never been easier, combining both audio and MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) recording into one convenient accessory.

With StudioConnect the audio in and out is simple:
Audio In - Plug instrument in through a mono 1/4" jack or plug a mixer into StudioConnect's stereo 1/8" (3.5mm) jack.

Audio Out - Left and right line-level RCA plugs. The 1/8" (3.5mm) stereo headphone jack, with its dedicated volume knob, helps monitor what's going in and out.

MIDI in and out is equally straightforward:
MIDI In - Connect a MIDI controller through a standard 5-pin DIN MIDI-in port.

A second 5-pin DIN connector accepts a sequencer, patch bay or other MIDI gear,
allowing the iPad and MIDI apps to act as a MIDI controller.

Lastly, Griffin introduces MicConnect a microphone interface for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Intuitive to use, simply connect a mic to the XLR input on the MicConnect and plug the 1/8" (3.5mm) audio cable into an iOS device's headphone jack and launch GarageBand or other compatible apps to get rocking. MicConnect's phantom power feature even accommodates studio microphones for high-quality recordings. Not only compatible with microphones, MicConnect also makes it possible to record amplifiers, acoustic instruments, and more right into GarageBand. MicConnect retails for $39.99 and will be available in June 2013.
