What is iTrack Dock?

It’s the perfect recording interface for songwriters, musicians and home recording artists who want to take advantage of their studio gear alongside the simplicity of iPad. Designed to provide a comprehensive recording, monitoring and control solution for iPad users, iTrack Dock is easy to use and provides all the control and functionality you would expect in a traditional recording interface.
That Legendary Focusrite Sound
iTrack Dock, like other acclaimed Focusrite interfaces, combines superb analog audio circuitry with the highest precision digital conversion expertise to deliver the best of all possible worlds for today’s iPad-based hit-makers, in both personal studios and world-class facilities across the globe. iTrack Dock features two Focusrite mic pres, which include 48V phantom power for use with condenser microphones. The legendary Focusrite sound embodied in all of Focusrite's products goes all the way back to 1985, when Rupert Neve was commissioned to build "no compromise" modules for the consoles in Air Studios. Since then, countless hit records have been tracked and mixed through Focusrite gear, which today follows the same design philosophy: Sound is everything.
Simple, Sleek Setup
Getting started is easy. No matter which Lightning iPad you have, simply slide the connector on the iTrack Dock up or down to match the position of your iPad's socket and plug it in. The iPad sits perfectly in the iTrack Dock, at just the right angle, in line with and alongside the Dock's raked control surface. Hooking up your gear is easy too. Simply plug in your microphones and guitars via XLR and jack cables, while line inputs and monitor outputs to your speakers are carried over TRS cables. A standard USB cable connects your MIDI controller to the iTrack Dock, giving you instant hands-on control of any assignable MIDI parameters.

Direct Monitoring for Comprehensive Control
