    And brings me an iPad2 !!!

    I couldn't believe it, just out of the blue, no special occasion, tells me there's one more bag in the car and could I get it for her, pick it up and there it is.
    She still laughs at the look on my face when i see it :)

    Anyway, I've since got Morphwiz, a couple multitrack recorders, MyMusicStand a sheet music display, set list maker and Angry Birds.

    Next up is a mic stand holder.

    So, what else is out there in terms of connectivity? I'm wanting to use this thing live.

    Would a stereo 1/8" cable split to two xlr's be overkill?

    Anyway to import songs other than iTunes?

    Line 6 just released an interface that will also work with other apps. But you may want to download their app as well, as it appears to basically turn your iPad into a full featured ( save for the input and output options ) Pod Xt. Peavey's Amp Kit Link ( which I own ) is good for going into the 1/8" jack, and only costs $30.

    Interfaces that use the docking connector have superior sound quality at least in terms of sending a guitar or mic signal into the app. For just audio playback from the iPad the 1/8 connector is fine.

    Get ready to find a stash of 100 pairs of shoes or something like that. These things don't usually happen in a vacuum. :)

    Tascam just released an interface with it's own DAC, MIDI and Audio I/O - kind of like and Alesis IOdock without the dock (Behringer released one, too). Other cool apps - Thumbjam and Animoog

    I'd wait till the Peterson app goes on sale(it's gone down to 99 cents once) and get that. I've heard many great things about it.

    For messing around and making some beats imaschine is pretty cool and you can export into maschine or a DAW.
